Super Smash Bros 3DS review

Super Smash Bros. 3DS Review

October 20, 2014 | by Rhys Wood

It’s that time again. A time of legendary icons squaring off against one another to prove their dominance. The immovable objects clashing against the unstoppable forces of Nintendo’s vast and storied history…

Minecraft PS4 and Xbox One Edition Review

October 7, 2014 | by Joe Martin

You awake in a strange, rural location. You have no idea where you are or how you got there. With no signs of civilization or other humans, you strike a tree and reduce it to blocks with your bare hands. You make a wooden axe which you use to harvest more trees…

Shovel Knight review

Shovel Knight Review

September 12, 2014 | by Vince Shuley

I launched into Shovel Knight with some pretty hefty expectations given the buzz about it being one of the standout indie titles of 2014. Catchy chiptunes, uber-hard platform mechanics, old school rescue-the-princess storyline re-imagined with shovels instead of swords…

Metro Redux review

Metro Redux Review

September 9, 2014 | by Adam Vjestica

There’s a reason I don’t watch the news. Terrorist threat this, unstoppable virus that. It’s a never ending onslaught of misery and fear that can turn any optimist into a bitter, disenchanted individual…

Risen 3: Titan Lords Review

September 5, 2014 | by Rhys Wood

Video Games: The Movie Review

August 15, 2014 | by Vince Shuley

Making a documentary on any subject, let alone video games, isn’t easy. It requires a lot of research, finding the right people for in-depth interviews and has a painstakingly long editing process. In 2012 James Swirsky and Lisanne Pajot released their tour de force Indie Game: The Movie…

Sacred 3 review

Sacred 3 Review

August 5, 2014 | by Mike Slater

Since 2008’s top-down action-RPG Sacred 2: Fallen Angel, series developers Ascaron sadly went into administration and handed the reins over to former publishers Deep Silver, who had interests in developing a sequel…

Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty review

Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty Review

July 31, 2014 | by Adam Vjestica

When Abe broke wind for the first time it was potent, a little wet, but most importantly, it was a smelly sign of friendship. This giggle-inducing trump forged an unbreakable bond between me and the sinewy saviour of the Mudokon people, and the stench of joy we both shared on that day still lingers on…
