Octodad: Dadliest Catch Xbox One Review

   26/08/2015 at 18:04       CHRIS OTOOLE       2 COMMENTS.
Octodad: Dadliest Catch is a game about subterfuge and lies. You have to perform everyday tasks like fetching your daughter a glass of milk from the fridge without any of your family twigging on to the fact that you are in fact a Cephalopod in a suit. This is easier said than done however, you see being an Octopus and all you can't exactly mosy on to the fridge and pour a glass of moo juice like you and I would, oh no, you have to make it there Octodad style. ...
Velocity 2X Xbox One Review

In Velocity 2X from developers Futurlab you find yourself in the futuristic space boots of the cringe-worthily named Lt. Kai Tana (groan). You are charged with finding and freeing your locked-up compatriots and getting the hell out of dodge. To help you in this herculean task you'll be able to tap into teleportation technology using your very handy Quarp Jet, which also allows you to pick up all sorts of other deadly munitions along...
Tales from the Borderlands: Escape Plan Bravo Review

   24/08/2015 at 18:18       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
Something happened while I was playing Tales From the Borderlands: Escape Plan Bravo, something I never really expected to happen from the premise when it was first announced. It became my firm favourite Telltale Games franchise. It's just so damn fun and hilarious, they've managed to absolutey nail the humour of Bordelands, and actually surpass that aspect of the games it's based upon. This episode kicks off with Rhys and Fiona under the heel of the cruel and viciou...
King's Quest: A Knight to Remember Review

   05/08/2015 at 21:47       CHRIS OTOOLE       2 COMMENTS.
There was a time, ages past, when a young adventurer would sneak into the hideous, snarling troll's stinking lair, all just to sample the delights of the King's Quest series of games. Okay, so the troll was my brother and he kept the Amiga computer in his room. The pungent aroma was all too real. Point is, I was willing to brave it as Sierra's series of point and click adventure games had me addicted, even all that disc swapping wasn't enough to put me off.  Dormant sinc...
Q.U.B.E. Director's Cut Review

   03/08/2015 at 17:10       N H       0 COMMENTS.
Q.U.B.E. (‘Quick Understanding of Block Extrusion’) first appeared at the tail-end of 2011, first on PC, then Mac, and now most other major platforms. The game was the ultimate product of a trio of students in the US, who took their idea and ran with it, culminating in this ‘director’s cut’. It’s an admirable story, even if the game is not always as inspiring. Q.U.B.E. Director's Cut takes place in a world of… cubes. The player character, usi...

Deep Silver have just covertly handed us the files to find the latest Lost Horizon 2 Trailer, brought to you from Game Arts, those nice folks who dumped the Secret Files series of games in your needy laps.

Seriously, check the trailer out below, aint that just the dog's danglies? When a trailer is that lovingly crafted it gives great hope that the actual game is going to be something special. Well I say game, there's 30 of the buggers hidden away in this collection which includes new game modes, ways to play and even some new music. 12 days left to wait. I can sleep that long can't I?...
Tembo The Badass Elephant Review

Well talk about surprises. Out of the relative blue Tembo The Badass Elephant has made his merry way to your download store of choice (Steam, PSN and Xbox Live Arcade, no Wii U just yet, sorry nintendfans). It's being published by Sega and is made by Game Freak, those lovable Japanese chaps responsible for Pokemon (you may have heard of it) Nintendo's perennial money-spinner. You won't find wandering adventure and a catch-em-all ethos in Tembo The Badass Elephant...
The Red Solstice PC Review

   21/07/2015 at 18:13       CLAYTON CLIVE       0 COMMENTS.
Mars ain't the kind of place to raise a kid. Even after terraforming and a mass exodus of our planet. It's 117 years after Earth and something really shitty is going on within the capital of Mars. So you step up with a team of badass space marines to do your part. The Red Solstice is a tactical, RPG, RTS, top down, horror, survivaly game. Primarily promoted as multiplayer I was pleasantly surprised to see the game encourages you to try the solo campaign to learn the ins and o...
Snoopy Set For Adventure In The Peanuts Movie Game

Forget all that Call of Duty bobbins The Peanuts Movie: Snoopy’s Grand Adventure is set for release the very same day. The game will see Snoopy explore the fantastical worlds of his imagination to track down Charlie Brown and his friends in an intricate game of hide-and-seek. As he follows their trails, Snoopy will acquire new costumes (based on his many alter egos) that provide unique abilities for overcoming obstacles and reaching new levels, including flight stages ...
Star Hammer: The Vanguard Prophecy PC Review

Don't let the corny, 90s sci-fi title, and extra corny trailer fool you (you know he is asking for trouble when he groans "147th run..." and same old shit different day... or something to that affect. Not a direct quote.) Star Hammer: The Vanguard Prophecy, we'll call it SH from here on out, from Matrix Games is serious. You command Naval Group 7 as humanity's new home Novus comes under threat again from a warmongering alien race know as The Nautilid. Before I get st...
Farm Simulator 2015 Xbox One Review

   07/07/2015 at 16:31       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
I must admit, when these Farming Simulator games first appeared on the scene I thought they were a joke. You have to be kidding, I thought, who wants to sit at the wheel of a virtual tractor and plough a virtual field? I can understand shooting virtual space aliens in the noggin and such, but farmers are some of the most miserable people on the planet. There must be a reason for that. Turns out the reason for their surliness may just be those stupidly early 4am starts to chuc...
Order of Battle: Pacific - Review

   13/05/2015 at 19:16       CLAYTON CLIVE       0 COMMENTS.
It's been a busy week. I've moved house. There has been a heartbreaking election night. And worse of all, worse than five more years of that guy. I had to paint. When I finally got the chance to sink my teeth in to Order of Battle: Pacific, I wasn't going to loosen my jaw.  Order of Battle was developed by The Aristocrats and published by Slitherine, I have never once been disappointed by a game published by Slitherine so I felt positive. I felt like I was in sa...

Virtual green fingered gamers will finally be able to live the full "Farming experience", the same one that has already enraptured over one million PC players with its latest version: all its content, its activities, its vehicles and, only on PS4 and Xbox One, the online cooperative multiplayer mode! Inviting other players in your game opens many opportunities for developing your farm: increase your productivity by sharing tasks or co-operating on bigger tasks and develop your farm faster tha...
Tower of Guns Review

   24/04/2015 at 11:50       N H       0 COMMENTS.
Tower of Guns has a deceptively simple premise: get gun & run. Tasked with ascending through the eponymous ‘Tower of Guns’, one is faced with numerous other guns, with only your gun to protect you. Guns guns guns. It’s good fun, and pretty impressive in certain respects, but on first impressions it can fall rather flat, and it may not have the legs one might hope. It’s a ‘roguelike’, in that you have one life with which to beat...

Not actually a protein. Go on, google it.

Just finished the PC version in co-op with my daughter. We had a great time. Co-op, where you control an arm and a leg each, definitely doesn't make it easier, but it's funnier....

It's a good chunk of game for your money to be fair, and at least it's cheaper to try than buying the full game. You could buy the season pass if you really wanted :D...
