Outland PC Review

Outland: It’s out there. 2011. It was a memorable year, not always for good reasons. Amy Winehouse died, the US finally did in Osama Bin Laden, The Harry Potter films were finally finished, the Arab Spring was in full flow with the resignation of Hosni Mubarak, and the kids were looking for a new high as Meow Meow became illegal. Sadly it was the year of the Japanese Tsunami too. On a plus note it was also the year that the game Outland, from t...

Ever since Rockstar announced Grand Theft Auto V on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, some folk have been asking if there will be anything extra for those PS3 and Xbox 360 players who are planning on picking up the new versions. To reward loyal GTAV fans for coming back to the newer, more detailed version of Los Santos and Blaine County, Rockstar have created an array of exclusive items specifically for these players - with each of them connected to activities designed for pla...
Lightberry Ambient Lighting Kit Review

   19/10/2014 at 22:44       RICHARD HORNE       6 COMMENTS.
While commercial mainstream video technology has focused more on 3D and stereoscopy in recent years, there’s a whole bunch of talented people working below the radar looking into the ways in which it’s possible to enhance your viewing and gaming experience through the use of colour LEDs. Chief among those are the talented people behind the Lightberry ambient light project. The Lightberry ambient light kit is quite simple really. An array of...
F1 2014 Xbox 360 Review

   16/10/2014 at 23:36       RICHARD HORNE       0 COMMENTS.
The biggest problem with Codemasters’ F1 2014 is unfortunately nothing that the developer could actually do anything about. With an officially licensed franchise like this, authenticity is king, but unfortunately, in the real-life world of Formula 1, the differences year after year are relatively few and far between in the grand scheme of things. Now of course the 2014 season saw a huge and monumental shift in terms of engine and aerodynamics regulations, but the potential for ...

Farming Simulator 15 invites you to spend a day on the farm in this brand new video linked below. You'll be able to perform all your farming duties in just two weeks time on PC, so now is the time to pull on your wellies and get chewing that straw. Sticking to the recipe that has so far proved such a smash hit (over 2 million units sold on PC and consoles with the previous 2013 version), the Farming Simulator franchise will be hoping to drop some jaws in Octo...
Ryse: Son of Rome PC Review

Exclusives eh? In these times of the terrible console wars nothing seems to stay exclusive for long, they all seem to arrive on the PC's doorstep before too long, shuffling their feet and with a slightly apologetic look on their faces. 'We wanted to be here all along!' they cry. 'You've never seen us look this good before, and we've dropped the shitty micro-transactons!' they plead. Well okay, come in, but wipe your feet first. To say Ryse: Son of Rome is a pretty game is lik...
Styx: Master of Shadows Review

   14/10/2014 at 13:41       CLAYTON CLIVE       0 COMMENTS.
Styx: Master of Shadows has recently been released into the engulfing shadows, this hardcore stealth game comes from Cyanide Studio, yeah you know the guys, right? The guys that developed Cycling Manager, Horse Racing Manager, the Game of Thrones adaption? How about Chaos League? Well I enjoyed it. They've been responsible for a real mash of titles, and it's fair to say I had no idea what to expect from these guys, but Styx: Master of Shadows...
Ancient Space Review

   07/10/2014 at 10:18       CLAYTON CLIVE       0 COMMENTS.
Ancient Space is a RTS that has been considered by many folk a spiritual successor to Homeworld. It comes from the devs at CreativeForge Games and is published by Paradox. I love Paradox. They've really become the kings of grand strategy so when I discovered Ancient Space through Paradox it really got me excited that they were, in a sense, giving this game their stamp of approval.  Ancient Space is single player and story based. You are trusted to comma...
Alien: Isolation Review

   06/10/2014 at 23:51       RICHARD HORNE       2 COMMENTS.
If the recent history of video games has taught us one thing, it’s that games licensed from movies are almost always terrible. And this is usually down to one of two reasons. One: movie narratives are not particularly appropriate or transferrable to something so dynamic and interactive as video games. Or that two: licensed game releases generally have to coincide with the release date of the movie, which means that the games are mostly under-developed and haven’t been given suffic...
Middle Earth: Shadows of Mordor Review

   06/10/2014 at 18:26       CHRIS OTOOLE       1 COMMENTS.
Middle Earth: Shadows of Mordor seems to have arrived from out of nowhere, sure we all saw it when it was announced, thought it looked cool and then laughed when it was said to be using half of Assassin's Creed's graphical assets. Yet here it is, and with little fanfare. I for one can't understand why Warner Brothers Games aren't trumpeting about this being released through the Horn of Gondor itself. It's good. Very good. You find yourself in the scruffy, muddy boots...
Anomaly 2 Review

   03/10/2014 at 11:33       FROD       0 COMMENTS.
So it’s tower defence then, and I hope you already know the basics of the genre. A map scattered with towers that are shooting at monsters/bugs/soldiers/whatever to prevent them reaching the other side. A way of powering up your stuff. A time limit. A variety of weapons of which judicious use is required to keep a similar variety of baddies at bay, and its fair to say that I’ve wasted a few hundred hours in this genre deriving enjoyment just from tweaking and trying new tactics. I...
Pathologic Gets Funded But You Can Still Help

   02/10/2014 at 17:26       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
Pathologic, the reimagining of the unique Survival RPG from 2005 and the debut game from Russian indie developer Ice-Pick Lodge, has successfully hit its $250,000 Kickstarter goal with over a week to go making it the most heavily backed independent Russian game on the the crowd platform to date. Some good going that, I can only put it down to it being featured on this very site. With six days to go and the pledges currently standing at $276,804 , Ice-Pick Lodge are working fe...
Defense Grid 2 Review

   02/10/2014 at 13:18       ALEX VAUGHAN       4 COMMENTS.
The first Defense Grid, was well known as the best Tower Defence game of the time when released in 2008 on Windows Live and Xbox Live Arcade, and it has pretty much continued to be the best Tower Defence Game ever made. Freeing themselves from the shackles of evil publishers and Microsoft, Hidden Path decided to use Kickstarter for the sequel. Asking fans for $250,000 they became filly funded with $20,000 to spare just over two year...
The Vanishing of Ethan Carter Review

   02/10/2014 at 10:08       ALEX VAUGHAN       4 COMMENTS.
The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is one of those rare examples of loveliness, which are so unique and astonishing that to describe it in any detail would ruin what it’s about.  You arrive at the cusp of a beautiful world. I don’t simply mean this in an aesthetic sense, this is one of the most, if not the most, beautifully rendered games I have ever seen. It is jaw dropping in places, and worth the price of admission alone if graphics are your thing.  ...
Iron Fisticle Review

   30/09/2014 at 09:47       ALEX VAUGHAN       0 COMMENTS.
I’ve never played Smash TV, but I have played hours and hours of many a twin-stick arena shooter, so I’ll just say Iron Fisticle (aside from the terrible/wonderful name) is a fairly slow paced but difficult as hell twin-stick shooter. The developer cites Smash TV as an influence though, so if you’ve played that you’ll know the score. Iron Fisticle is deliberately old school with its presentation and controls, limiting you to only 8 points ...

I've had this for a few days but haven't even had chance to open its wrapper thanks to Alien: Isolation. I will get to it at some point and am very much looking forward to it....
