the-wolf-among-us-s01e03-review-score

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 turn, left our protagonist feeling a little wooden overall. It was a missed opportunity, but […]

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes

metal-gear-solid-ground_zeroes_review-score

Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 22/11/2013 The Metal Gear franchise is 26 years old, and arguably one of the most beloved series in the history of video games. With this thought, it’s no surprise that many games in the series have been highly acclaimed by critics and fans alike; with most shifting millions of units. It’s been nearly six years since the […]

FEZ

Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 27/03/2014 After years of availability on other platforms, FEZ has finally made its debut on the PlayStation Network – boasting cross-buy and cross-play functionality, mind you. I had previously heard nothing but positive remarks and interesting anecdotes upon FEZ’s inaugural release on Xbox Live Arcade nearly two years ago, and had always hoped for a PlayStation release. […]

Dark Souls II

Dark_Souls_II_review_score

Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 22/11/2013 Demon’s Souls was an imported game that I had spotted at my local GameTraders long before it was officially released in Australia. For many months, I considered purchasing it, but with only an average review from Japanese magazine, Famitsu, to reference; I was not entirely confident. Needless to say, I was absolutely taken aback when I […]

Titanfall

borthers-tale-of-two-sons_review-score

Platform(s): Microsoft Exclusive Release: 14/03/2014 When pulled to pieces, it could easily be surmised there isn’t a single new idea in Titanfall. The storyline reads like Firefly fan-fiction, Mechwarrior did the mech thing first (and Hawken is doing it right now) and team-based FPS’s are hardly unique. However, with that said, the whole package comes together to create something altogether […]

twd_s02e02_review_score

Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 05/03/2014 In my review of the previous episode, I discussed the disconnect I experienced between myself, and stepping into the shoes of Clementine. Initially, this was a concern, but in time, I slowly started to embrace a new understanding; which seemed to fluctuate back and forth between the somewhat vulnerable perspective of Clementine, and her previous protector, […]

One Finger Death Punch

one-finger-death-punch_review-score

Platform(s): PC & Xbox 360 Release: 22/11/2013 I can literally only describe this game as a video-game video game. The name, the crappy flash graphics, the insane combo feedback, the whole thing reeks video game. In fact, if you can’t already see it, scroll down and find the image of the in-game cat blocking the screen. That cat isn’t just […]

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2

castlevania_lords-of-shadow-2_review-score

Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 27/02/2014 Under the guidance of Hideo Kojima, MercurySteam created a fantastic universe in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. It was gorgeous, well designed, and while this new direction for the series might not have resonated well with all long-time fans, in my opinion, it was still an outstanding game with its own merits. I was captured by the […]

Thief

thief-game-review-score

Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 22/11/2013 I’m not a patient person, but the pre-release hype and gameplay teasers for Thief managed to grab my attention from the first moment I saw it. Eidos were promising a next-generation game with unprecedented immersion, intelligent AI, and freedom for the player to customize their experience with every step. So many facets of the promised game […]

South Park: The Stick of Truth

south-park_stick-of-truth_review-score

Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 06/03/2014 One of the very first things I did when I received my copy of South Park: The Stick of Truth was sit down on the toilet, triggering a quick-time event which, when completed successfully, awarded me with a “turd nugget” – an item which could subsequently be thrown at enemies in combat to give them the […]
