Lords of the Fallen


Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 30/10/2014 As someone who regularly plays a lot of different games, I’ve started to become frustrated with poor design choices that needlessly waste my time. I really don’t enjoy trivial objectives that fail to engage players in a meaningful way, or, at […]

Hyrule Warriors


Platform(s): Wii U Exclusive Release: 20/09/2014 I feel like I need to start this review off by saying that I’m glad that “Hyrule Warriors,” isn’t preceded by “The Legend Of Zelda.” In fact, I think we’d all do well to pretend that any characters or […]
