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 […]

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 […]

Watch_Dogs

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 […]

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 […]

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes

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 […]

Titanfall

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 […]

Thief

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 […]
