Developer: Croteam Platform(s): PC, Mac & Linux Release: 23/07/2015 It’s funny to think that The Talos Principle was originally conceived as a new puzzle mechanic for the next Serious Sam game. Although, this isn’t the first time something new has birthed from an existing franchise; […]

No Time To Explain

Developer: tinyBuildGames Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 17/07/2015 I love original and inventive indie games that offer something different for gamers to enjoy; titles that don’t fall into the cookie-cutter AAA title category. Unquestionably, No Time To Explain stands strongly within that group of creative and quirky […]

Rocket League

Developer: Psyonix Platform(s): PS4 & PC Release: 07/07/2015 Driving cars around and bumping a ball into a goal doesn’t sound appealing to me at all, but here’s a case of an idea being executed so well that it’s hard not to have a good time. […]

Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition

Developer: Access Games Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 10/07/2015 Games have come a long way since Devil May Cry 4 first launched back in 2008. Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition doesn’t make an old game fresh again, but it does what it can to bring along […]

Developer: Tomasz Wacławek Platform(s): PC, Mac, Linux Release: 30/06/2015 If you asked what I thought of Ronin a week ago, I’d say that DeNiro’s performance was on point, but the film didn’t have one. Now, my opinion is that while my jumping was on point, […]

Developer: Black Lab Games Platform(s): PC Release: 04/06/2015 Anyone who says they don’t like games about tactical space combat is lying to you and themselves. Commanding vessels in a full 3-dimensional battlefield is the pinnacle of strategy, demanding clever positioning and forward thinking to successfully […]

The Escapists

Developer: Mouldy Toof Studios Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 29/05/2015 Puzzle and 2D games will always end up sitting on the ‘currently playing’ list for at least one of my consoles, which makes a game fitting both categories an immediate favourite child. Enter, The Escapists; recently released […]

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Developer: CD Projekt RED Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 19/05/2015 CD Projekt RED are one of the few larger game developers that I have the utmost respect for. Naturally, I am a fan of their work, but I also find it so refreshing that despite continued success, […]

Hatred

Developer: Destructive Creations Platform(s): PC Release: 01/06/2015 Author’s Note: Since the developers pulled the game from Australian Steam for… reasons? I was (thankfully) unable to purchase a copy for review – many thanks to Kyoji Shirakani for giving me access to a copy. I use […]
