Beyond: Two Souls

- PS3

David Cage is a polarizing figure. Depending on who'd you ask, he's either a hack who couldn't make into the movie industry or a pioneer of the storytelling medium. Personally, I'm ambivalent towards Mr. Cage. I find his ideas to be sound in theory but their execution almost always falls flat. Take, for example, Fahrenheit/Indigo Prophecy. The opening sequence is quite possibly the greatest st...

Grand Theft Auto V

- PS3

The skies are clear, the weather is weather, the beaches are gorgeous, the blood stains on the pavement are sweet, and the frantic yells of pedestrians running from a psycho with a gun in his underwear is satisfying….ah, nothing like it. The game that lets you get away with everything under the sun if you can lose the cops for 3 seconds just to do it all again is back….Grand Theft Auto ....

Killzone Mercenary

- PS Vita

Killzone: Liberation was a game released back in 2006 which was fairly well received. Since then we haven’t seen another portable game from the Killzone franchise until Killzone: Mercenary which was released back in September (this year). Killzone: Mercenary was developed by the newly named Guerrilla Cambridge for the PS Vita. The Vita has had problems when it comes to killer apps (I have a lis...

Beyond: Two Souls

- PS3

On October 8th, David Cage and Quantic Dream released Beyond: Two Souls in America. As someone who’d seen multiple videos on their last critically acclaimed project Heavy Rain, I strapped myself in for the action-packed, nonlinear rollercoaster that I’d been sold at E3. Some of the major selling points for me were the fast-paced hand-to-hand combat, Ellen Page’s voice acting and what appeared t...

Divinity: Dragon Commander

- PC

Most games can fit into a maybe two genres fairly easily. Call of Duty and Battlefield are First Person Shooters. Mass Effect is an action role playing game. Age of Empires, StarCraft, and Empire Earth are real time strategy games. So where does Divinity Dragon Commander fit in? In part it’s a RTS-RPG-Management-Risk like game. I’ll explain all that in a minute. Graphics- 8/10 Divinity Drag...

Beyond: Two Souls

- PS3

Quantic Dream, a French interactive entertainment company, has only developed four video games since the founding of the company sixteen years ago. It goes without saying, 'quality over quantity' and that is exactly the credo that the company embodies. Quantic Dream's first title, Omikron: The Nomad Soul, was a commercial failure despite the average ratings it had received. Following this, the...

Ironclad Tactics

- PC

When Ironclad Tactics was pitched to me as a ‘fast-paced, card-based tactics game’ set during the American Civil War, I have to admit, I was skeptical. Little did I know that it featured ROBOTS! In Ironclad Tactics from Zachtronics, you play through stages by controlling a variety of upgrade-able automatons, called Ironclads. The game itself gets off to the same start as the Ironclads from t...

Grand Theft Auto V

- PS3

Rockstar’s GTA V has finally released and the GTA franchise is finally back to San Andreas (in particular Los Santos) which is arguable the best location the GTA series has ever been set in. It has been just over 5 years since GTA IV came out for the PS3 and 360. A lot has changed since GTA IV came out but has GTA V caught up with modern times. The answer may surprise you. GTA has never bee...

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...

Let me start by saying that i was never a huge fan of Nintendo, back inthe 90s i had a Sega MegaDrive 2 ( Saturn in the US i guess ) then a PS1 and continued with Sony Ever since, Nintendo consoles weren't popular where i lived. The first Nintendo system i actually played was Wii, i was curious about the controller so i tried it a couple of times. But ever since the WiiU was announced i got ver...

Grand Theft Auto V

- Xbox 360

It’s no surprise that a product coming out of Rockstar Games’ development studio would receive a wide range of excitement, hype, high expectations and applause; it’s also no surprise that Rockstar never fails to deliver on all aspects. Sure, there are some methodologies implemented in say, Grand Theft Auto IV or Red Dead Redemption that some gamers weren’t a fan of. Some said Liberty City was t...

Need For Speed Most Wanted U

- Wii U

EA hasn't exactly been a huge supporter of the Nintendo Wii U, despite the first impressions they gave when they exalted Nintendo and their new system at their E3 2011 presentation. Instead of bringing the games like they promised, EA has so far only released 4 game on Nintendo's new system. Need for Speed: Most Wanted U, developed by the EA-owned team "Criterion Games", is the most recent game...

The Last Of Us

- PS3

Naughty Dog developers have created many games across generations. Their first masterpiece was the beloved Crash the Bandicoot for the first Playstation. When Playstation 2 arrived, Naughty Dog didn't give up and created Jak and Daxter series (Technically Jak but who can't love that otter-weasel hybrid?). They didn't stop as they have created the gem that is Uncharted series for the current gen...

TMNT: Out of the Shadows

- Xbox 360

TMNT: Out of the Shadows will make you feel many things, Joy,nostalgia,disappointment and at times frustration. However for the most part the game is a shell of a time. OVERVIEW: The turtles are back with a new grittier art style that adopts the personalities of the turtles from the surprisingly good new Nickelodeon show. The timeline in this game is a bit different or at least it seems tha...

Killzone Mercenary

First off let me start by saying I'm not one that generally posts reviews with in-depth details and analyzing in-depth, but I may try to go in-depth, so forgive me if I sound ever so noobish during this review, otherwise do enjoy it! The Vita has been dying for an FPS Title that feels right at home and well created and crafted just for the Vita, and I can tell you straight off the bat tha...

Diablo III

- Xbox 360

When someone familiar with videogames mentions the word ‘blizzard’, chances are the first thing that comes into their head will be the purveyors of PC games who go by the same name, rather than the fearsomely cold weather inclement. Famous for their titles such as the hugely popular StarCraft and World of Warcraft games, Blizzard Entertainment have at long last decided to cut their teeth on...
