Assassin's Creed Origins - Review

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 15:33:53 +0000

The soft reboot this series needed [Posted 13 Dec 2017 by ]

(image) Assassin's Creed as a franchise was beginning to wane. Unity was terrible, Syndicate was fun but felt like it was treading all too carefully on already well trodden ground. Wisely, Ubisoft allowed Assassin's Creed Origins an extra year to bake in the unforgiving Egyptian sun.

Set during the latter days of Ptolemaic Egypt, a ... click to read full item



Graveyard Keeper - Preview

Mon, 11 Dec 2017 10:02:21 +0000

Dead-on strategy [Posted 11 Dec 2017 by ]

(image) Ever wondered what it would be like to be a Graveyard Keeper in medieval times? Me neither. Despite our apathy towards experiencing such a profession in what can only be described in very dark times, Lazy Bear Studios has seen fit to make Graveyard Keeper.

This is a game that places the player in the ... click to read full item



Fort Triumph - Preview

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 15:18:47 +0000

Turn-based combat with an environmental twist [Posted 23 Nov 2017 by ]

(image) The resurgence of turn-based strategy games (thanks in no small part to the success of XCom) has taken a lot of people by surprise, with even Nintendo and Ubisoft joining forces to make Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle on the Switch. Fort Triumph builds on the success of these titles by creating a turn-based ... click to read full item



Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus - Review

Mon, 13 Nov 2017 09:37:40 +0000

A triumphant exploration of an alternate history [Posted 13 Nov 2017 by ]

(image) I first came to Wolfenstein back in the early 90s on my Dad's 486 monochrome Toshiba laptop. Doom was already out by this point but the machine we had wasn't quite good enough to run it so I had to make do with Wolfenstein 3D instead.

'Make do' is probably not the right way ... click to read full item



EarthNight - Preview

Thu, 2 Nov 2017 13:03:22 +0000

A console/PC endless runner done right [Posted 2 Nov 2017 by ]

(image) The infinite runner has become extremely popular on mobile platforms for fairly obvious reasons. They require only one digit to play, which is perfect when you're being crushed by someone on a train on your daily commute to work.

On PCs and consoles they haven't fared as well thanks to those platforms not being restricted in their ... click to read full item



Hob - Review

Mon, 30 Oct 2017 10:12:00 +0000

A mechanical wonderland [Posted 30 Oct 2017 by ]

(image) I am hopelessly lost in Hob's fascinating mechanical world and I couldn't be happier.

Hob from Runic Games, the makers of the Torchlight games, sees you playing as a small cloaked wanderer who, within minutes of playing, loses an arm to a hostile, purple plant monster, only to have it replaced with a giant ... click to read full item



Crest - First Look

Thu, 12 Oct 2017 12:55:15 +0100

More a religion sim than a god sim [Posted 12 Oct 2017 by ]

(image) The concept of the 'god sim' has been around in video games for some time and anyone perusing the archives of SPOnG would attest to the fact that they are indeed a very popular and old format. But what if the player was given powers of a god that could only enact edicts and hope those who worshipped it ... click to read full item



Coffence - Preview

Mon, 9 Oct 2017 14:47:00 +0100

A coffee spill-'em-up [Posted 9 Oct 2017 by ]

(image) I'm no fan of coffee. I just have to make that point right now before I describe what was for me one of the most surprising games of PAX West 2017, Coffence.

As a stalwart tea drinker the idea that I could possibly find anything remotely entertaining about a game that features the retention and consumption ... click to read full item



Ken Follet's The Pillars of the Earth - Review

Thu, 28 Sep 2017 16:18:26 +0100

Not quite a cathedral building sim [Posted 28 Sep 2017 by ]

(image) As a big fan of point and click style adventure games I am ashamed to say that I was unaware of Daedalic Entertainment's attempt at adapting Ken Follet's 1989 historical fiction novel The Pillars of the Earth.

Adventure games have come a long way over the last 5-10 years. A genre once seemingly consigned to history ... click to read full item



PAX West 2017: Archangel - First Look

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 16:44:45 +0100

Building sized mechas and VR [Posted 22 Sep 2017 by ]

(image) Stomping around in a massive robot suit that is the size of a building is something that has long been part of videogame culture and Archangel continues that long tradition, only this time it puts the player directly into the cockpit of one via VR. I got to play this robot stomping simulator during PAX West 2017, where ... click to read full item



Destiny 2 - Review

Fri, 15 Sep 2017 11:14:59 +0100

A whole new solar system [Posted 15 Sep 2017 by ]

(image) The opening to Destiny 2 is one of the best I've ever seen in a game.

Not only is it fun to play, but it does so much in the space of an hour that it's pretty overwhelming. It acknowledges the time you've spent on the first game, manages to give you a credible excuse for ... click to read full item



First Strike Final Hour - Review

Thu, 7 Sep 2017 17:23:00 +0100

Chillingly timely [Posted 7 Sep 2017 by ]

(image) You won? That question mark is highly telling about the message First Strike Final Hour has to say about nuclear Armageddon.

Blindflug Studios AG has managed to encapsulate nuclear war in a tiny package that asks you to do one thing - be the last nation standing. How you go about doing this is up to ... click to read full item



Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni - Review

Thu, 3 Aug 2017 16:11:00 +0100

Must be a Marvelous game [Posted 3 Aug 2017 by ]

(image) Anime girls, punching clothes off and unnatural jiggle physics, oh my! It must be a Marvellous game!

Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni is a game about a bunch of diseased girls quarantined on an island forced to fight each other in order to treat their illness. What's more, each combatant must team up with another girl in order ... click to read full item



Masquerada: Songs and Shadows - Preview

Thu, 6 Jul 2017 11:09:23 +0100

An alt Italian history RPG [Posted 6 Jul 2017 by ]

(image) I first encountered Masquerda: Songs and Shadows at PAX West 2016, but I played it briefly as they were closing the show down. I ran out of time as I tried to fathom what was going on in the strange alternate reality Italy where magical masks bestowed powers on the people who wore them, even though they did ... click to read full item



Nex Machina - Review

Mon, 26 Jun 2017 12:50:00 +0100

Your new favourite twin stick shooter [Posted 26 Jun 2017 by ]

(image) Although there have been some fantastic twin stick shooters in recent years, nothing has come close to knocking Geometry Wars: Evolved off of the tip of my list.

That game was incredible. Relentless, fast-paced, beautiful to look at and as rewarding as it was frustrating. The perfect mix of arcade spectacle, refined gameplay and score-c ... click to read full item
