Cloudbuilt Review

Cloudbuilt, a game about parkour free-running above the clouds, aims to be the next big speed running game for the PC market. While it has some stand out mechanics, it’s the odd choices that keep it from being the next big thing.

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle Demo Impressions

Words by Milo Fisher

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is one of my favourite anime out there. It has whacky characters, bombastic battles, manly posing, and a whole lot of people shouting “JOJO!” and “DIO!” at the top of their lungs. It’s bizarre, and it’s wonderful. So when word came about that the fighting game was coming to the west, I was overjoyed with the thought that more people would experience the sheer joy from the game that I felt watching the anime. After playing a good few hours of the new demo that was just released, all I can say is that I want this game more than ever.

Smite Review

Words by Milo Fisher

Smite, the new MOBA from Hi-Rez Studios, dares to be different. With a chance of perspective and fast paced gameplay, Smite manages to separate itself from the competition and be one of the best free-to-play games out there.

I recently got to play the first 30 minutes of the upcoming indie platformer The Last Tinker. While the game is in need of some serious polish, it has the potential to be the next big indie darling.

Inazuma Eleven made its name on the original DS back when the system started out, and with the latest game in this sport RPG series being released on the new 3DS, how does it fair?

The Wonderful 101 Review

Words by Milo Fisher

The Wii U is known for being a console for younger gamers due to the lack of hard and challenging games for the system. Thankfully, Platinum Games have decided to bring a hardcore game to the Nintendo market with The Wonderful 101.

Here’s Something Scary: Outlast

Words by Milo Fisher

“No! nonononononono! S**T NOOOOOOO!” This made up the majority of my playtime with Outlast on the PS4, a survival horror game so creepy that I struggled to press forward even with the lights on. Scaredy-cats beware, this is one spooky ride.

The Lego Movie Game Review

Lego movie

Words by Milo Fisher

After the recent release of the fantastic Lego Movie, expectations for the movie based tie-in game were high. So far all Lego games had been tied to another franchise, so having the game be set in a world that was made to already be Lego was a scary thought. Would the game be able to deliver the same amount of entertainment and comedy as the film while also providing hours of addictive gameplay? Well…

Danganronpa Review

Words by Milo Fisher

The success of the “Zero Escape” series has spawned a wide range visual novels to be translated and brought over to the west, with each one trying to stand out from the crowd with their unique features and whacky characters. Danganronpa is the latest of these puzzle visual novels, a game with a style unlike anything else.

Jazzpunk Review

Words by Milo Fisher

These recent years it seems video games are getting too serious. There became so many colourless shooters and Minecraft clones that I wondered if there was any hope in finding some originality in the world. Enter Jazzpunk, the self aware spy comedy adventure that makes me happy to be a gamer.

Dark Souls II Preview

I got the chance to visit Namco Bandai recently to get our hands on Dark Souls II. And after playing the first three hours, I can safely say that it’s just as punishing and rewarding as it’s predecessor, and I rather loved it.

Here’s Something Awesome: Broken Age

BA_Logo_Color

Words By Milo Fisher

Point-and-click games were massive in the past, with such classics as Monkey Island and Grim Fandango being highlights to the genre (for me anyway). Sadly the genre has seemed to have died out in recent years in favor of more action packed titles. Fear not, for now things have changed! Tim Shaffer, the head of Double Fine studios and one of the minds behind both Monkey Island and Grim Fandango, has finally released the Kickstarter funded Point-and-click beauty that is Broken Age.

Here’s Something Awesome: Dungeon of the Endless

Words By Milo Fisher

Rouge-likes are all the rage these days, with more and more being released every week it’s becoming harder to find the ones that do something different and take risks. Enter Dungeon of the Endless, an up and coming randomly generated dungeon crawler that makes opening every door a battle of life and death, and it’s rather cracking.

Dragon Ball Z Battle of Z Review

Words By Milo Fisher

Dragon Ball Z is one of the most beloved anime franchises in the western world. The expansive amount of content in the universe just begs to be turned into a video game. Battle of Z is the latest Dragon Ball game to grace our eyes, but is it worth charging you Ki for? Or should you teleport away?

Milo Fisher: Pikmin 3 Impressions

Words by Milo Fisher

The Pikmin series has been around for the past twelve years and has received nothing but praise from both critics and the community, yet it’s taken this long for me to finally get round to playing this adorable series. But with Pikmin 3 being released on the Wii U, I finally got my chance to experience the series and see what all the fuss was about.

Here’s Something Awesome: The Banner Saga

The-Banner-Saga-08

Gamers love to imagine what would happen if multiple games were combined together, to picture a game that takes all the best elements of games they love and mix them to create something incredible. Sadly, most gamers are left to dream for a game that captures what features they desire, but not for me, as The Banner Saga manages to capture everything I love in a masterfully crafted adventure.

Steamworld Dig Review

steam-world-dig-010

Way back in the day, there was an Xbox 360 indie title called Miner Dig Deep, it was a nice relaxing game all about sitting back and working away at a mine. Steamworld Dig is just like Miner Dig Deep, except it has robots, monsters, puzzles, and rocket punches. Oh yes, it has sweet, sweet rocket punches.

Soul Hackers 3DS Review

226465-DSSH

The Shin Megami Tensei series didn’t pick up much popularity in the UK during the 90’s, and it wasn’t until the persona series came out that the franchise grew its passionate fan base. This meant that games such as Soul Hackers flew right over people’s heads. But now, thanks to the re-release on the 3DS, players young and old can experience one of the games that defined the franchise.

Deadly Premonition: Directors Cut Impressions

Deadly Premonition is the twin peaks of gaming. It’s a B-movie for gamers. It’s a fantastically strange adventure that people are going to either love to bits, or hate with a burning passion.

Bravely Default Review

Bravely-Default-European-Box-Art

Think back to the days of old, when Final Fantasy was the most ambitious and well crafted RPG of the generation. Those games were incredible.  Well Bravely Default has appeared to take us back to that time and show us just why RPG’s are so magical.

Saint Seiya: Brave Soldiers Review

bmUploads_2013-07-03_3656_Saint-Seiya-Brave-Soldiers-EMEA-Logo1

When a new fighting game is made by Capcom, people lose their minds. But when a new fighting game is made by Dimps, no one seems to notice. It’s a shame, as Saint Seiya: Brave Soldiers is an incredibly enjoyable and well made anime fighting game that should be played by all anime fans alike.

The Raven Legacy of a Master Thief Review

The-Raven

The Raven is the latest point and click puzzler from Nordic Games. And while it’s great to see a game in such a niche genre get such a high budget title, the fact the game feels like such a love letter to fans of the genre that it ends up leaving everyone else out, makes reviewing such a game difficult.

Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon because I DON’T KNOW! Review

adventure-time-dungeon

Adventure Time. Cartoon Network’s hit show about a boy and his dog. With a series with such a well crafted world and many memorable characters, it seems that a game set in the world would be fantastic. Sadly, Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon because I DON’T KNOW isn’t the game fans have been waiting for.

The legend of Zelda: A Link between Worlds Review

The-Legend-of-Zelda-A-Link-Between-Worlds-1920-x-1200

Zelda games have had their ups and downs lately. Twilight princess had mixed reactions from the fans, and skyward sword its fair share of problems.  The last original handheld Zelda game was Spirit Tracks, a game that no one really seems to hold in high regard. But thankfully The Legend of Zelda: A Link between Worlds has burst onto the scene. And much like Ocarina of Time, this is one of the best Zelda games of all time.

State of Decay review

State of Decay is the first game by studio Undead Labs. While the game has a few hiccups here and there, State of Decay is the fantastic zombie game we’ve all been waiting for.

Contrast review

Contrast-Package-Art

Contrast is an incredibly creative game with so much potential. But a lack of focus and constant amount of bugs keep this game from being something truly magical.

One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 review

one-piece-pirate-warriors-2-characters-646x325

Luffy and his rag tag band of Straw Hat pirates are back once again with their second PS3 outing. And while this is a Dynasty Warriors spin off through and through, anyone who loves One Piece will be very happy with this game.
