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

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...

Soul Sacrifice

- PS Vita

For the past several years, Sony has continued to release a steady and long list of quality RPGs on their home consoles and portables. And the trend isn't slowing down. This past February, Sony held a Vita event showcasing several new RPG titles that would also be seeing a release outside of the traditional Japanese market. One of the first games to make it over to the US and European markets i...

Street Cricket Champions 2

- PSP

The core Gameplay is solid, with approachable controls and appropriate buttons for fielding, requiring you to press the right button at the right moment to catch batsmen out. Batting is equally clear-cut; press the matching button for the shot of your choice (lofted shot, ground shot or defensive) in mishmash with the analog stick for direction. Bowling works in the same way, with the universal...

BioShock: Infinite

- Xbox 360

In all the time I have played video games I have never thought that there is such as a perfect game. BioShock Infinite has made me change my mind but that doesn't mean that it is perfect. Is BioShock Infinite perfect? Read the hole review to find out. BioShock Infinite is beautiful not just graphics wise but story wise. In BioShock Infinite you are play as Booker. You are trying to get a gir...

Soul Sacrifice

- PS Vita

WARNING: you're in for a long review. The quick bits: Available on PS Vita through retail or PSN download My total playtime: 6 or so hours in the Japanese demo, 19 in the US demo, 16 hours (so far) in the retail release Worth it? Yep. TL;DR: a boss-hunting game with punishing difficulty, a huge number of spells and customization options, tons of cool bosses, interesting lore, and online...

Max Payne 3

- PS3

Max Payne is one of Rockstars longest and most successful franchises, a personal favourite of mine. When Rockstar announced they were going to release a current gen Max Payne I was ecstatic. Then I learnt that Remedy games were not going to return for Max Payne 3. Rockstar Vancouver the new studio at the helm was met with harsh criticism from fans and journalists alike. I would be lying if i wa...

Medal of Honor: Warfighter

- Xbox 360

As Call of Duty continues its annual releases, EA’s answer against their competitor’s tactic is by alternating between the Medal of Honor (MoH) and Battlefield series each year. After the sufficient critical and commercial reception of the 2010 MoH reboot, Danger Close heeded the call to make a sequel. Now having control over all aspects of the title and sporting the jaw-dropping Frostbite 2...

Strike Suit Zero

- PC

How are there so few space sims anymore? It seems like the easiest and most awesome kind of game to make. You just make a pretty skybox (spacebox?) Make a ship for the player, make a similar ship with AI controlling it that you copy-paste a whole bunch and bam! You got a game. Well, this is the too-empty-for-too-long niche that Strike Suit Zero tries to fill, and it throws in a kickass anime...

Don't Starve

- PC

The official Don't Starve website (found here: http://www.dontstarvegame.com/ ) calls the game "An Uncompromising Wilderness Survival Game Full of Science & Magic!" I call it a game where you die a lot, and I love it. The premise of the game is as simple as it gets: do not starve. Cast onto a seemingly deserted island, you must gather your wits about you, prepare to face each coming ni...

Injustice: Gods Among Us

- PS3

The development team behind Injustice: Gods Among Us are no strangers to the fighting game genre or to the DC Universe cast of super heroes and villains. NetherRealm Studios, formerly known as Midway Chicago, is the studio behind the popular and successful Mortal Kombat series. They were also the studio behind the crossover title, Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe and more recently, the 2011 re-boo...

BioShock: Infinite

- Xbox 360

I thought that I should take the time to review Bioshock Infinite because, as someone who’s never played any of the previous Bioshock games, I felt that I could offer a valuable, unbiased opinion. I’ve witnessed all of the hype – from the 10 out of 10 ratings to the varied criticisms on what’s considered a profound ending to an even more profound plot. The real question to anyone clutching thei...

Tomb Raider

- Xbox 360

The game introduces a young Lara Croft and a crew who are seeking an adventure and are bound to a group of stormy islands known as the Dragons's triangle in which her ship crashes separating Lara from the surviving crew. The first few hours show how Lara doubts her abilities but also show how she has to embrace what she is destined to become. From an average regular person to a survivor, th...
