Tales of Berseria

Having played several games from the Tales series over the years, I was excited to play Tales of Berseria, the sixteenth main entry – especially after being disappointed by Tales of Zestiria, which was the previous instalment, and leaving it incomplete. I had some apprehensions […]

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 […]

Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone

Amidst the mass of RPG and Puzzle games that I play, I reserve a special place for Rhythm games. Demanding quick finger-work and an innate sense of beat, these games expect much from the player, but always provide avenues by which you can practice and […]

Fruit Ninja VR

Fruit Ninja makes sense in VR. Swinging swords at flurries of fruit was a clever capitalisation on touch control that feels just as conducive to motion. A few years back it would’ve been hard to argue that motion controls didn’t come and go with the […]
