The Deadly Tower of Monsters Review

B-Movies seem to have found a resurgence. Flick onto SyFy and at any given moment you'll have Sharknados, Lavalantulas, space operas set in obvious plywood spaceships, all with a Hasslehoff or Sheen trying for one last self-aware grasp at the spotlight. All of them going for the so-bad-it's-good tangent, most of them sailing far past the mark and looping back around to just bad. My theory is that B-Movies were so ridiculously successful in the 50s and 60s is that peo...
Mordheim: City of the Damned Review

I should begin with an apology, Mordheim: City of the Damned was released on the 19th of November, this review is mighty late and I feel guilt for that. But more than your forgiveness, I ask for your pity. In the last 2 weeks I have worked close to 120 hours. Not through choice. But through the vomit inducing hours and the omnipresent bond to my capitalist overlords, Mordheim: City of the Damned has always been on my mind. I have been willing myself on for another hour, know...
Minecraft: Story Mode Review

Review by Emily O'Toole (15) Minecraft as we know it has always been the game where you see what type of person you are. You are either a daring adventurer looking for trouble in Survival Mode or you're more of an original who prefers to be safe in creative mode. However Minecraft: Story Mode is designed to have a bit of both aspects within. It is a game easily adapted to even if the angles in the game are not. The controls are the same as in...
Darksiders 2: Deathinitive Edition Review

   08/11/2015 at 14:46       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
Review by Adam Asunder. Do you remember Darksiders? Or more accurately do you care about Darksiders? Those are the questions this re-release seems to want to pose to the current video game consumer.  The series was a reasonable success on the last generation of consoles but the overarching narrative based loosely around the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse ended up standing on a precipice after two games as the original publisher wen...
Wasteland 2: Director's Cut Review

   20/10/2015 at 17:21       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
War. War never changes. Certainly not top down isometric post apocalyptic war anyway. That always look a bit like the Fallout series. At least in this case such comparisons are warranted as the developers, inXile were indeed partly responsible for Fallout in the first place. Wasteland 2: Director's Cut sees you tasked with investigating the murder of Ace, a wasteland ranger cut down in his prime. This inauspicious beginning will see you exploring a massive wo...
Mushroom 11 review

   20/10/2015 at 12:58       ALEX VAUGHAN       0 COMMENTS.
Mushroom 11 is a unique, refreshing and lovely platformer marred by frustrating difficulty spikes and occasional unpleasant design, but you should really play it.  If you’ve not heard of it by now, in Mushroom 11 you are a green blob of amorphous…stuff, in an apocalyptic wasteland. Moving through a backdrop of gorgeously painted 2D art, showing the devastation and burnt out world around you, you must navigate through the world (some of it still aliv...
Transformers: Devastation Review

   18/10/2015 at 16:56       RICHARD HORNE       1 COMMENTS.
Gaming for me recently has mainly consisted of slogging my way through open-world epics such as Batman: Arkham Knight, The Witcher 3 and Far Cry 4. And so with that mind, Platinum Games’ left-of-field release Transformers: Devastation was the most perfect of palate cleansers.  Devastation’s plot, according to Wikipedia is simply "When Megatron discovers a way to harness the power of plasma energy to cyberform the planet...

Xbox store description claims game is "suitable for Playstation Move" - more Microsoft blunders

A mistake on the Xbox store was recently highlighted, in which the newly announced ‘Instant Indie Collection’ for Xbox One was described as the perfect way to experience ‘Indie’ on Playstation. It turns out this isn't Xbox's first run with lazy store descriptions that seem to retain Playstation-specific selling points. For instance we'...

Broken Sword 5: The Serpent's Curse Xbox One and PS4 Review

What the fucking fuck have Revolution Software done to my beloved George Stobbart. His beautiful hand-drawn mannerisms reduced down to fickle 3D rendered mannequin, it's enough to make a man do a little sick in his mouth.  After this initial shock I managed to settle down a bit to play the game. Broken Sword is a classic point and click adventure series first unleashed to the world in 1996 and I bloody loved it. My chum and I sat up long into the night wrestling ...
Lovers In A Dangerous Spacetime Review

   20/09/2015 at 12:36       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
Review by Adam Asunder With AAA games starting to treat couch co-op like a ginger step-child - one that once ate the contents of an ashtray for a dare - it's heartening(!) to see indie games picking up the baton and taking the act of playing with a real, living, breathing person (not that ashtray consuming weirdo though) to new and interesting places. In this case the developers Asteroid Base have imagined what it would be like to be blissed out on Ecstasy whi...

The Golf Club: Collector's Edition review

I've been gagging for a good golf game. Sometimes you want nothing more than to kick back and have a virtual stroll about some pretty places knocking your balls about. Unfortunately EA's Rory Mcllroy's Golf did nothing for me, it felt a bit unfinished and soulless, leaving the way free for HB Studio's The Golf Club: Collectors Edition to run in and nab the trophy of my heart. First impressions aren't that great though. It looks a bit of a pig's ear. It's full...
