Metro 2033

- PC

At the end of 2013 Russia was targeted with atomic bombs witch caused severe radiation across the whole of Moscow forcing the rest of Moscow’s inhabitants to live underground in the metro tunnels and stations to survive against the effects of the radiation left on the surface. The people and animals that did not make it to safety from the radiation turned into monsters or creatures known as the...

Tales of Xillia

- PS3

The latest of a slew of Tales titles due to hit the West in their translated forms, Tales of Xillia was initially released in Asia just a tad over 2 years ago. Xillia has gone on to be one of the most marketable (and marketed) titles in the Tales series for a number of reasons, including its sequel which is due to hit the lands of the West somewhere around the first or second quarter of 2014. W...

Machinarium

- PC

I wanted to love this game so much more. I truly did. After a recent escapade back to my old point-and-click adventure roots with The Night of the Rabbit, I’ve had a fervid desire to mix this genre back into my routine much more often: this title, the special editions of Monkey Island—plus other Lucasarts’ classics if Disney knows what they’re doing, and hopefully many more. It was rather...

Batman: Arkham Origins

- PC

It is universally agreed that Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City are both two of the finest games this generation that provided a pleasant change of scenery from the usual horde of sub-par superhero games. This certainly paved the way for some cautious scepticism when Warner Bros Montreal took on the onerous task of creating a prequel to the esteemed series. Making a sequel, or prequ...

Batman: Arkham Origins

- PS3

Imagine, if you will, falling in love with a beautiful girl. She's smart, she's funny, she's beautiful and she knows how to make you happy. You have no idea how but somehow every syllable, every word and every one of her actions make your heart soar. She just has that certain 'quality', if you will. Fast forward in time, you and your beau have broken up (circumstances not important) and you're...

The Stanley Parable: HD Remix

- PC

Parable; a short allegorical story designed to illustrate or teach some truth, religious principle, or moral lesson. Based on this definition, someone going into The Stanley Parable might infer that the game will be about a lad named Stanley who, for the duration of the game, will accompany the player on an adventure that will impact them in some meaningful way. With no prior knowledge to the g...

The Last Of Us

- PS3

Over the past five years or so, the gaming landscape has been inundated by post-apocalyptic and/or zombie themed games. More often than not, these games range from mediocre- a la ZombieU -to downright awful, like this year's Walking Dead Survival Instinct. But occasionally, the industry strikes gold with brilliant experiences like Fallout 3 or Metro 2033. These games tap into what can make the...

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...
