The Legend of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild – The Master Trials DLC Review

Hero Go Again: ‘The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild‘ wasn’t shy about how difficult it was. It reintroduced a punishing difficulty curve to a series that hadn’t asked too much of its players since the halycon days of the Super Nintendo – and longtime fans ate it up. Indeed, Breath of the Wild’s unwillingness to hold your hand quickly became one of the titles most praised elements. ...[Read More]

Ever Oasis Review

Intro: “Ever Oasis” is developer Grezzo’s first deviation from a long line of Zelda releases and remakes in a while, and whilst that ever-present influence can be felt at times in their new title it doesn’t stop it from being a wholly original and enjoyable game. Story: Ever Oasis casts you in the role of a Seedling, a cute race that inhabit, protect and nurture the world’s multiple oa...[Read More]

Nex Machina Review

Death Machine: Housemarque have gone from strength to strength in the last decade or so, redefining what an ‘arcade’ game is now that arcades no longer exist – at least not as we once knew them. From the classically designed Super Stardust HD to Resogun and now Nex Machina, it feels like a trilogy of sorts has come to an end. They have of course made loads of great games between those titles, and ...[Read More]

GOD WARS Future Past Review

Nouveau Old-School: “God Wars: Future Past” is a new title in a genre that doesn’t see enough diversity. The SRPG is crying out for competition, lest it be lorded over for all time by the likes of Fire Emblem and Disgaea. Enter God Wars, a new but thoroughly old-school SRPG by the folks at Kadokawa games. Story: God Wars eschews the standard SRPG tropes of knights and valour and civil ...[Read More]

ARMS Review

An Absolute Knock-Out: One of my most distinct gaming memories is playing Super Smash Bros. on the Nintendo 64 for the first time. It was immediately fun, with an instant connection to its controls and mechanics – something I find truly rare in the fighting genre. I was over the moon, then, to find those familiar feelings bubbling up again when I booted up ARMS for the first time over the weekend....[Read More]

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series – Episode 2: Under Pressure Review

Cheap Trick: In my review for the debut episode of Telltale’s Guardians of the Galaxy series I called it an incredible premiere, and indeed I’ve been itching to play the next episode for what seems like far too long. It brings me no pleasure then to say that Episode 2 – Under Pressure – is a big letdown in almost every department. Story: As Telltale games are wont to do, Episode 2 treads water. It...[Read More]

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia Season Pass Review

Once More Unto the Breach: When Fire Emblem Fates launched last year, I joyfully worked my way through every inch of content that game had to offer. Besides the three main campaigns, I grabbed BOTH Season Passes and devoured them too. I’ve never had so much fun with peripherary content as I did with Fates. That’s why when Nintendo sent a Season Pass for the recently released Fire Emblem Echoes my ...[Read More]

The Town of Light Review

Intro: At first glance “The Town of Light” looks like every other first person horror game. Set in an abandoned asylum for mental illness you’d expect there to be supernatural presences and jump scares aplenty, but thankfully developer LKA subverts those expectations by delivering a hard hitting look at the treatment patients received in these facilities instead. Story: You play Renée,...[Read More]

Disgaea 5 Complete Review

Game of (Porcelain) Thrones: “Disgaea 5 Complete” is an unbelievably content-rich package for Nintendo’s new portable console, and is an important genre ‘get’ for the Switch. In 2015, when Disgaea 5 was first released, I called it a ‘worryingly life-ruining series’ and called for it’s return to portable hardware. Now that my wish has been granted, however, I’m a little worried: my bath...[Read More]

Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2 Review

Guilty No More: Guilty Gear was the fighter du jour of my adolescent years. As I got older, however, and tried to move away from button mashing and into something more purposeful, I realized I simply don’t have the skill to play the complicated fighters that the inimitable Arc System Works put out. Their deep mechanics and high skill ceiling simply didn’t accommodate a player of average skill, I t...[Read More]

Victor Vran: Overkill Edition Review

No relation: ‘Victor Vran‘ is a game I’ve had on my Steam wishlist for a couple years now, but I’ve always passed it up in sales because I’ve been disillusioned by the genre of late. ARPGs have struggled to overcome the legacy of Diablo III, and I’ve been burned a few times since trying to find something to satisfy that particular itch that doesn’t come up short. Playing the souped up ...[Read More]

Akiba’s Beat Review

And the Beat goes on: Despite it’s stumbles, I enjoyed Akiba’s Trip when it came out a few years ago. When I heard the game was getting a music-orientated psuedo-sequel in Akiba’s Beat, I was quietly excited – even if you can’t strip sexy vampires to kill them anymore. Story: Akiba’s Beat has echoes of groundhog day in its story, with an endless Sunday loop acting as the setting for your trip this...[Read More]
