Deadlight Director's Cut Review

   22/06/2016 at 14:39       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
When Deadlight burst onto the scene in 2012 as part of Microsoft's Summer of Arcade (may she rest in peace) it was hailed on this very website as being one of the best 2D platformers in a good long while. Deadlight Director's Cut has you pulling on the worn boots of gruff beardy man Randall Wayne as he has to jump, platform and puzzle his way through a whole cities worth (including sewers) of shadow infested action. Well, Tequila Works says shadows, what they really ...

Warner Brothers have just dropped their new fighting game trailer and nailed a Superhero landing. Injustice 2 offers the latest DC fighting game experience that expands on the previous title’s larger-than-life showdowns.  Every battle promises to define you in a game where players personalise iconic DC characters with unique and powerful gear earned throughout the game.  For the first time gamers will take control of how their characters look, fight and develo...
Dead Island Definitive Collection Review

   03/06/2016 at 16:21       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
Dead Island Definitive Collection includes Dead Island, Dead Island: Riptide and Dead Island Retro Revenge. A fairly full package a gaming goodness for the asking price of twenty five quid, and it can be had even more cheaply online. Assuming it's any good of course, so let's have a delve. Released in the space year 2011, Dead Island was an instant sensation thanks to a spectacular marketing campaign, I don't think I've seen a better t...
Overwatch Review

   31/05/2016 at 18:08       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
It's hard to talk about Blizzard's Overwatch without referencing Valve's Team Fortress 2, the current champion of the online multiplayer shooter world. They both have a cartoon aesthetic, they both have similar game modes and they both have a roster of likeable characters with specific traits. The main difference is Blizzard are asking full price for Overwatch, Valve's game is free. So is it worth stumping up the cash for this new experience? Yeah, of course...
Deadlight: Director's Cut Gets An All New Mode

   25/05/2016 at 16:07       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
Deep Silver slid a new Youtube video under our door today, detailing the brand new Survival Arena Mode for Deadlight: Director's Cut which will be release on the 21st of June for sixteen notes. In the all new Survival Arena Mode pick-ups are essential to withstand the hordes, such as in-map weapons and ammunition. Changing the game, different weapons will also be introduced, including the Machine Gun, Molotov Cocktail and Sniper Rifle. A further helping hand will be offered t...
Homefront: The Revolution Review

   23/05/2016 at 18:06       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
I've been hearing things about Homefront: The Revolution for some time, whispers it wasn't going to be any good after its change of publisher and the small scale nature of it's development team (the remains of Free Radical Design fact fans). Heck I'm writing this after I've read the early-bird reviews which haven't exactly been glowing. So approaching this as a gamer who likes games let's give it a fair shake of the stick. Norks. Not the beautiful lady bump variety, but the a...
Civ 6? Yes Please!

2K have just rammed the brand new annouce trailer for Civilisation VI into my inbox, and I think you really ought to watch it. Civilization VI will offer up new ways to interact with your world, expand your empire across the map, advance your culture, and compete against history’s greatest leaders to build a civilization that will stand the test of time. Well that is if Ghandi doesn't nuke you first. Originally created by legendary game designer Sid Mei...
Party Hard Review

   27/04/2016 at 18:01       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
When Party Hard first appears on your screen blasting it's 16-bit style sprites and chip-tune music at your face and ears, it's hard not to peg it as Hotline Miami's mescaline addled twin. It's pure pixel death, but at a much slower pace. Developed by Pinoki Games at a game jam, it attracted the wandering eye of TinyBuild who stumped up the money to make a full fat version for PC and consoles, and I for one am pretty glad they did. Taking the role of 'Guy Who...
Aliens Vs. Pinball Review

   25/04/2016 at 19:06       CHRIS OTOOLE       2 COMMENTS.
Well holy heck, this was a bolt from the blue. Pinball FX's developers, Zen Studios continue to be the kings of licensing by bagging the rights to this massive sci-fi horror series. I've been pining for more horror themed tables too, so I was more than pleased to be able to check these out. Like any normal human being I plumped for Aliens first. This may have been a terrible mistake however. Seriously, this table is so good it makes all the others look slightly w...
The Collider 2 Review

   19/04/2016 at 18:31       ALEX VAUGHAN       0 COMMENTS.
This is the sequel to a game I have never heard of, and something I probably would have continued to never hear of without a review code coming my way. The options upon loading it up show me it has been designed for VR, and may be going after the new audience I’m not a part of yet, opposed to a standard PC release.  However i’m quite pleased it did come my way, as it’s definitley my kind of thing. This is a game built around the final escape from Venom in Ly...
DiRT Rally Review

I'm not a racing fan, never have been. I enjoy the Forza Horizon series because of its blue skies and sense of fun, but anything more hardcore than that causes me to break out in hives. I've just never found sim-heavy racers to be much fun. But DiRT Rally has changed me, this is a belting game, full of physics and yaw, slides, braking and horrendous race ending crashes. Yet somehow it remains fun, and it makes me want to try again. I don't know what's happening to me...
SUPERHOT Review

You wake up. You shower, change, eat. You head to work. You sit at your desk. You go home. You eat, change, sleep. You wake up. You head to work. You go home. You wake up. You head to work. You go home. You wake up. You head to work. You go home. This is future and past tense. Your actions are the choices you’ve already made, perhaps because, in some unconscious way, you’ve been told that’s what you have to do. You go home. You open up...
The Deadly Tower of Monsters Review

   21/01/2016 at 11:11       CHRIS GRAPES       0 COMMENTS.
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

   14/12/2015 at 14:29       CLAYTON CLIVE       0 COMMENTS.
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...
