WWE 2K16

I vividly remember the first time I watched WWE Pro Wrestling. I was flicking through the channels when I came across a contest between The Rock and Big Boss Man – it was a ladder match on Raw is War. My first thought was, ‘Why […]

As a reviewer, it’s not often I get to spend as much time with one game as I do when covering an episodic series. With 6-8 week gaps between instalments, it’s big commitment, but also a great opportunity as it gives you a lot of […]

Transformers Devastation

The trailers for this game made it look absolutely stunning. In terms of visuals, they did not disappoint. The game is really bright, colourful and generally nice to look at. The comic book art style disguises any low-quality graphics well, and even when I dropped […]

Dragon Quest Heroes

Slimes. Cameos from members of past main series Dragon Quest games. Akira Toriyama art and Koichi Sugiyama musical accompaniment. It seems to me that this might be a Dragon Quest game. Well, me, you’re wrong. Despite the name, look, and sound, Dragon Quest Heroes: The […]

Blood Bowl 2

Oh, Games Workshop, you IP-nazi, money-grubbing monster, how I love to hate you and hate to love you. I played 40K almost religiously back in the days of my 14-year old youth, but nowadays, I’m stuck with not having money and not wanting to fund […]

Mad Max

Mad Max: Fury Road was one of the best movies of this year, if not of all time. In comparison to the rest of the franchise, it was hands down the best of the lot and not simply for the special effects that were used. […]

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

It’s funny, but with every Metal Gear Solid release (bar the first) there’s a general consensus that the game is amazing – despite some major flaw. MGS 2 was the bait-and-switch with Raiden, MGS3 had horrible controls until the Subsistence re-release, MGS 4 had more […]
