Grid Autosport Preview

Words by Milo Fisher

After the release of the incredibly average street racer Grid 2 last year, Codemasters have been very hush hush with their projects. Now they emerge a year later with Grid Autosport, a racing game that aims to fix all the issues found in the other Grid games while adding even more things to rev your engines at.

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.

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.

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.

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.

GAME opens an Xbox exclusive store

GAME have recently opened up a new shop in London that exclusively stocks Microsoft products and nothing else. This seems a similar move to what Apple did when they opened stores that only contained Apple products. As to why this store has opened and is exclusive to Microsoft equipment is a bit of a mystery. It could be a tactic to help the launch of the Xbox One which is coming in November.

Injustice: Gods Among Us review

INJUSTICE_11

The last time a game with DC comic book characters met up with Mortal Kombat influence, we were subjected to a rather dull, boring, and mainly bullshit game. Understandably it was an attempt to bring DC into the fighting game genre. We’ve had Marvel based fighting games for a long time, but any foray into the DC universe is met with a resounding failure. The more recent attempts at a DC universe game presence, such as the Batman: Arkham series seems to have put new life into a tired idea. What we get, is a rather pleasant surprise with NetherRealm Studios’ Injustice: Gods Among Us.
