Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 02/07/2014 When Guacamelee! launched on PS3 and PS Vita last year, I had a really great time playing it. As one of my favourite games of 2013, as well as one of the best games on the Vita to this day, this […]

GRID: Autosport


Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 27/06/2014 There’s a certain elegance to the racing genre that’s not always visible to outsiders; that goes beyond the flashy cars and roaring engines. Perfectly timed overtaking manoeuvres and sticking to the optimum racing line sound a little dull, but in practice […]

Valiant Hearts: The Great War


Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 26/06/2014 I honestly couldn’t tell you how many Nazi’s I’ve taken down via World War II based shooters, over the last two decades. Thousands upon thousands, I’m more than certain of it. And yet, with so many virtual casualties at my behest, […]

Wolfenstein: The New Order


Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 20/05/2014 And here you thought you were done with killing Nazis. Well, think again. The WWII shooter genre went stale a few years ago, and even the Nazi zombie gimmick has become overplayed (refer to South Park: The Stick of Truth for […]



Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 27/05/2014 Oh, Watch Dogs. You elusive hound, you. You’ve teased me since 2012 with that deliciously hopeful E3 trailer, so rife with relevance and cultural understanding. Over time, you gestated in my mind as the game that couldn’t be messed up, the […]

Murdered: Soul Suspect


Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 06/06/2014 Anything supernatural, mysterious, or slightly chilling never fails to spark my curiosity. When a game exhibits any of these qualities, however, I more often than not find myself playing with all the lights on, no volume, and with one eye closed. In […]


Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 14/05/2014 In Harms Way is the third episode of season two, and as the title suggests, there are going to be many scenarios that will push Clementine to see just how far she is willing to go to help others. This isn’t […]

Child of Light


Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 30/04/2014 Judging by all of the pre-release hype, which consisted of art-laden teaser trailers and keyhole glimpses at Child of Light, it seemed Ubisoft Montreal were working on something completely left of centre. The style and story-book narrative, coupled with insights into […]

LEGO The Hobbit


Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 08/04/2014 I keep telling myself that I’ll get bored with the next LEGO game, and that Traveller’s Tales can’t possibly maintain their string of advances with every title. Then LEGO The Hobbit gets released, and not only am I happy to swallow […]


Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 22/11/2013 The Wolf Among Us continues, and so does Bigby’s decent down the proverbial rabbit hole. In the previous episode, we were left feeling a little underwhelmed as the strongest plot point from the first episode had been rendered inert, and in […]
