The Last Of Us

- PS3

The Last of Us was one of this year's most anticipated video games—and quite possibly one of the most anticipated games of all time—and it has finally arrived on the PlayStation 3. After originally being revealed at the end of 2011, gamers around the globe were on the edge of their seats to learn more about Naughty Dog's new IP. Naughty Dog, responsible for the critical success of the Uncharted...

The Last Of Us

- PS3

The end is here, and it’s the sickest, most gut-wrenching, perversely violent hellhole you will ever love. And I mean: You. Will. Love. It. Next generation? Honey, forget the PS4/Xbox One war (which the PS4 will win). Next generation, for the time being, is here. And it’s called The Last Of Us. This is a game that makes the Uncharted franchise look like an alpha test of Hannah Montana:...

Remember Me

- Xbox 360

Remember Me is an interesting game I'd been following since its announcement at Gamescom two years ago. Originally titled 'Adrift,' it began development in 2008, when Dontnod Entertainment was formed. It introduces players to a futuristic, self-titled Neo-Paris in which you meet Nilin Cartier-Wells, a 'memory hunter.' Memory Hunter mem·o·ry hunt·er /ˈmem(ə)rē/ˈhən(t)ər/ Noun · A pers...

Remember Me

- PS3

In the constant shotgun-fire of indie titles, mindless Call of Juarez: Final Booty reboots, clones, and various forms of incipient masturbation, it’s easy to miss any gems which might have gotten mixed in with the buckshot. There are a few games that stick with us however, in a permanent, painful kind of way. Games like Uncharted which have had so much money thrown into them that the franchise...

GRID 2

- Xbox 360

Codemasters have come up with quite a unique title that comes off as a fluid combination of an arcade and simulator racing experience. When you start Grid 2 it doesn't give you a tutorial or really a guide on how you are supposed to move forward. Instead, it makes you put your big boy pants on and tells you to race through the mean streets of Chicago demanding you show what your made of. Unl...

Remember Me

- Xbox 360

Recently, I’ve had the opportunity to play Capcom’s action-adventure title Remember Me. In many ways, this game is one of the rare instances where my expectations have been fulfilled through and through. The focal part of this game is its well-thought out story. Set in Neo-Paris, 2084, Remember Me opens up with its main character Nilin having her memory drained in a Bastille prison facility...

Crysis 3

- PS3

It's a tense sequence in a great-looking first-person shooter. Crysis 2 left behind the original game's literal jungle for one of the urban type. Crysis 3 melds the two, returning you to a New York City where destruction and decay have been softened by overbearing greenery. The private military company known has CELL has erected a dome over the city, turning the crumbling metropolis into a garg...

Resident Evil Revelations

- Xbox 360

Resident Evil: Revelations HD is a great game, let me just start out by saying that. Capcom went into full damage control after the critical failure of Resident Evil 6; Revelations is a huge step in the right direction for getting the series back on track. I'm thrilled to see the company taking the appropriate steps to herd fans back into the world of survival horror. As most may know, over...

Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2

- Xbox 360

Three years ago, City Interactive (once fittingly known as Lemon Interactive) released Sniper: Ghost Warrior, a self-proclaimed tactical stealth experience that was received with mixed to negative reviews. It was praised for its visuals, sniper cams and concept but criticised for the absurd and uneven difficulty, poor execution and lack of appeal. For reasons unbeknownst, City Interactive thoug...

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...

GRID 2

- Xbox 360

Five years ago, Codemasters released GRID, an under-appreciated milestone in racing video games this generation. GRID is a game that placed itself in between racing simulation and arcade racing; its focus, as with the sequel, remains locked on pushing an emphasis on racing. Legitimate, no nonsense racing and that's what I like about GRID. You're expected to take the risks required to win and le...

Thomas was alone

- PS Vita

In October 2010, during a 24-hour game jam at Blitz Studios, Mike Bithell hacked together a flash-based physics puzzler using quadrilateral shapes of varying sizes and abilities. These unassuming rhomboids represented a group of sentient AI programs, trapped within a computer mainframe, who become self-aware and realise a common goal to escape the confines of their system. The game opens wit...

DUST 514

- PS3

Back in 2003, a small Icelandic video game company called CCP released an MMORPG game called Eve Online. Eve Online is a story about human civilizations in the far future colonizing the planetary solar system of a distant galaxy after the human race depleted all of the natural resources of our home planet. As generations evolved on the new planet system, the human race was divided into five dif...

Mars: War Logs

- PC

2012 saw a few joint efforts from developer Spiders; one such effort with Frogwares to bring us The Testament of Sherlock Holmes and Of Orcs and Men in association Cyanide Studios. Both were fairly well-received games critically. Well, Spiders has us caught in their web once again and I'm happy to report they might still be a little shaky, but they're really starting to come into their own. Mar...

Anomaly 2

- PC

For a time tower defense was a fairly refreshing genre, and when developers see something new and exciting of course the inevitable wave of different titles will flow in. When the market places is drowning in Tower Defense, it really takes something unique to standout in the crowd, and for those who played the first Anomaly they undoubtedly discovered just that – a uniquely different and breath...

Luigi's Mansion 2: Dark Moon

- 3DS

The story begins with Luigi once again getting sucked into the ghost-removal service by the wacky Professor E. Gadd. Luigi is on an adventure to bring all the ghost calming artifacts of the Dark Moon together, and he and his modified vacuum (a.k.a. the Poltergust 5000) need to clean up five mansions in order to find the entire Dark Moon. The storyline is funny and charming yet not something tha...

Game Dev Tycoon

- PC

I've always been of fan of tycoon and simulation games. No matter what job is being shoved in my face, I'll likely find something to enjoy in it. I've been a one-man demolition crew in Demolition Company, lorry (Did I just say 'lorry'?) driver in the SCS Software games, manager of a nice few spots in Vegas in Vega$: Make it Big!, a ruler of a Banana Republic in the Tropico series, amongst too m...

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3

- PS3

As a fan of the series, you'll bet I picked up my copy the first day it launched. Upon installation, you'll find a nice little box that'll catch you up on the story so far through some scrolling text. You won't see all of it before it finishes, but if you so choose you can continue to read on after installing. My first impressions of the game were honestly a bit lackluster. Yet, the longer...

Vanquish

- Xbox 360

If there’s one inveterate species of this generation it would be the third-person shooter. Whether it’s the gritty gray aesthetic and chest-high walls commercialized by Gears of War or stylized action from Uncharted, there haven’t been any candidates to question why forward momentum should be limited to convenient cover placement. If there’s any developer who can change that way of thinking i...

Bastion

- PC

The amount of content is staggering, and the storyline/narration are stellar. When you start a New Game, you start out on a small platform that has nothing more than a bed and some knick-knacks. However, it's the only place for you to call home. After the Calamity, not much was left, and the only way The Kid(the hero) can even traverse his way across the skies is because the City Crest he has...
