Horizon Zero Dawn

When Guerrilla Games launched Killzone Shadow Fall with the PS4, it was evident they were capable of so much more than their long-held series facilitated. Shadow Fall’s spirited colour palette, broad mechanics and curious narrative felt restrained by the solidified conventions of Killzone while trying […]

Berserk and the Band of the Hawk

Back in 2006, I started to watch anime at the recommendation of a friend at the time. Being that we were both new to the medium, the results of our misadventures had a spectrum of quality ranging from terrible to “OK.” One of the first […]

Gravity Rush 2

Gravity Rush is an endearing, distinct game I mightn’t have ever expected to receive a sequel. The charming characters, deceptively elaborate narrative and unique action of the Vita darling live on in Gravity Rush 2, with more than a few new tricks. The scale of […]

Digimon World: Next Order

Despite being a fan of the first season of Digimon in my younger days, I have not previously put a decent effort into getting into any of the series’ many games. Last year’s Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth release caught my interest initially, but I never […]

Coming up to the series eleventh instalment in the Kingdom Hearts franchise with Kingdom Hearts III, there’s a level of respect that I feel the series is entitled to purely based on its ability to remain popular and relevant despite it being as oversaturated as […]
