5 Important Life Lessons I Learned From Gaming

By  •  Features

For centuries people have claimed to learn things from texts they’ve read, found role models in their favourite novels or plays, and even praised films and TV shows for their didactic quality – so why is it then that discussions of the effects of gaming have been limited to violence and desensitisation for so long?…

Rocket League Review – Race For Goal

By  •  Reviews

I’ve never understood the appeal of football. Like my love of seafood and the swell of anger I feel every time I see Tony Blair’s face, it’s just one of those things I’ve never quite been able to explain. The closest I’ve ever come is that it bores me. Read Review

Batman: Arkham Knight Review – Oh, What a Knight

Who’d be a citizen of Gotham City? Not me, that’s for sure.

If I was unlucky enough to be born kicking and screaming in Elliot Memorial Hospital, I would firstly question the sanity of my parents for choosing to live there for so long, and then suggest that we relocate immediately – once I had the mental capacity to do so, of course. Read Review

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Review – Glorious Geralt

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, the third action role-playing epic from Polish studio CD Projekt RED, makes you feel like you’re playing so many of your past favourites at once. And though some of its emulations feel like thinly scraped butter individually, as a whole this is still one of the best sequels you’ll play this year, thanks to how cohesively both action and role-play fornicate… Read Review

Final Fantasy Type-0 HD Review – Star Pupils

By  •  Reviews

The Final Fantasy series has a history of being overly self-indulgent. Extravagant cutscenes bookend every set piece. Storylines tend to favour complexity over simplicity. And the cast of characters range from the cold and emotionally detached to the annoyingly upbeat. Read Review

Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number Review – Redial Now

By  •  Reviews

With Dennaton Games’ Hotline Miami becoming one of indie’s crowned champions back in 2012, a sequel to the adrenaline-fueled slash-em-up was surely on the cards. Sure enough we now have that sequel in the form of Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number. Read Review

DmC: Definitive Edition Review – Devil’s Delight

By  •  Reviews

Why did Ninja Theory have to make Dante such a detestable individual? Arrogant, foul-mouthed and unconvincingly “edgy”, Dante has as much charisma as the swarms of idiots on Vine and Facebook who film themselves acting like twats in public because they think it’s funny. Read Review

Grim Fandango Remastered Review – Supple Old Bones

By  •  Reviews

Age takes its toll on us all. As the years go by, those grey hairs, wrinkles and peg-legs become more and more pronounced. It’s not clear when it happens. For some it’s around middle age, where the realisation that time doth not stand still inspires them to dye their hair fluorescent pink or drive around in a Honda Midlifecrisis. Read Review

Resident Evil HD Remaster Review – Lest We Forget

By  •  Reviews

Remasters are a funny thing. They rely on nostalgia for the original game, feeding off that sense of wonder we felt when experiencing it the first time around. Some manage this successfully, upgrading everything that made the original great and ironing out any lingering flaws, while others attempt a half-arsed rehash that at best looks only nominally better and at worst comes out more broken than its predecessor.

Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions Review – Shape Up

By  •  Reviews

Twin-stick shooters have been enjoying a renaissance period as of late. The cubic destruction that featured heavily in the fabulous PlayStation 4 exclusive Resogun kicked off the next-generation with all the spectacle and pizazz that we’ve come to expect from a triple-A title. Read Review

Far Cry 4 Review – It’s An Animal

I’ve died a lot in video games. I’ve been gnawed on by a zombie, shot dead by a Nazi, fallen into the abyss, and succumbed to the skill of another human opponent on countless occasions. Read Review

Alien: Isolation Review – Running Scared

By  •  Reviews

If you only take one thing from this review let it be this – the Alien is a bastard.

You’ll shout, you’ll cry, you’ll invent all-new profanities just to belt at the screen as the scaly-skinned nightmare drops from a ceiling vent and chews your face off just as you get near a save point. Read Review
