Lone Survivor

- PS Vita

Lone Survivor is essentially Silent Hill minus one dimension. And while that should be incentive enough for horror fans to jump into their Pyramid Head pyjamas and dance ceremoniously around various accumulated special edition usb sticks – others may look upon Jasper Byrne’s commercial debut and wonder what all the fuss is about. Set in a post-apocalyptic world teeming with terrifying, biped...

Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs

- PC

The Chinese Room must be commended for the bold direction they've taken with Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, the much anticipated sequel to 2010’s The Dark Decent. Not content with retreading old ground like so many sequels before it, A Machine for Pigs takes things right back to basics and delivers a narrative-focused experience that eschews the cumbersome menus and inventories of the original in...

Kentucky Route Zero: Act 1

- PC

Kentucky Route Zero is quite the odd little video game. It's both a charming, nostalgia inducing point 'n' clicker -- and a Lynchian nightmare complete with crazy characters and esoteric dialogue. After beating the first of five planned acts, I was left feeling like a stranger had entered my house, started making an omelet in my kitchen, and then looked at me as if to say "Why aren't you choppi...

The Swapper

- PC

The indie scene has been kicking some major bum bum lately. It seems like every time I become disillusioned with the whole modern gaming thing, a new indie gem comes along and restores my faith in the medium. This week my saviour came in the form of sexy 2D clone 'em up The Swapper. At first glance, one would be forgiven for thinking that The Swapper was some sort of Metroid spin-off – what...

The Legend Of Zelda: The Wind Waker

- GameCube

The Wind Waker HD is a rare example of a re-release done right. It’s a game that understands the potential for these ever so popular HD remakes to reinvigorate aging classics not just aesthetically, but mechanically too. So while Halo’s anniversary was soured by the absolute preservation of its infamous Library, and Shadow of the Colossus’ reissue retained a camera that was more interested in C...

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

- Xbox 360

Back in the good old days, the Castlevania series was well known for providing an intense side-scrolling action experience with the occasional bit of s**tty platforming thrown in for good measure. But thirteen games later across virtually every available system and Castlevania was beginning to show its age. So developer, Konami decided to shake things up a bit with their fourteenth title - by s...

Machinarium

- PC

Machinarium is a dope little point ‘n’ click adventure game from those sexy chaps over at Amanita Design. It was released back in 2009 for super high end computers that only science people have access to. In Machinarium, you assume the role of an adorable, unnamed robot who has been exiled from his home in the big city for reasons that are not initially clear. You’ll need to overcome taxing...

Trials HD

- Xbox 360

I used to consider myself a master of leaning, but that was before I played Trials in high definition. This game is so freakin' intense that if you were to let a cow play it, it would be considered cruelty to animals and Morrissey would come round to your house and start singing his mediocre solo material at you,..... You scared yet? The story in Trials: Extra Definement, is as heartwarming...

Minecraft

- Xbox 360

I never got around to playing Minecraft when it was released on PC last year. This was admittedly mainly due to the fact that my now eight year old computer would start crying uncontrollably whenever I proposed a trip to the third dimension, but truth be told, I also had my own reservations about the block building behemoth. In the past I've steered clear of time sink video games like World Of...

Deadly Premonition

- Xbox 360

Occasionally while on one of my expeditions to my local Gamestop, I will come across a title that somehow managed to slip by me undetected prior to it's release, Deadly Premonition is one such game. At the time, I had no knowledge of it's troubled development history, nor was I aware of SWERY, the game's enigmatic director. There was just something about the box that caught my eye, a hooded fig...

Dead Space 2

- Xbox 360

Trying to find a good horror videogame is like trying to find a good movie that has John Goodman in it, they are out there but they are notoriously difficult to come by. The Silent Hill series is a good place to start and the Forbidden Siren games do have their moments, but for the most part, videogame horror comes off as cheap and predictable. So where does Dead Space 2 fit in? I hear you scre...

PaRappa the Rapper

This game is unflinching in it's depiction of life in the ghetto and the cruelty of the music industry, if you thought Will Smith was offensive then you ain't seen nothin' yet.... The game follows a rapping dog (or dawg, ha ha ha ha ha ha ha) named Parappa on his quest to deflower a flower named Sunny Funny, the only problem is Parappa is too shy to tell Sunny how he really feels so he does...

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Dude, Skyrim is off the charts cool, I was in this town called Helgan about to get a haircut when suddenly a freaking dragon swooped in and was all like "Hot enough for ya?", I was like "F*** that, I'm outta here", so I followed Werner Herzog out of town to a small village called Riverside. When we arrived, Werner's sister asked me to go on a quest and I was like "Who made you Queen of quests?,...
