Horizon Zero Dawn Review – Rise of the Machines

Back in February Sony made the very bold statement that they anticipated Horizon Zero Dawn protagonist, Aloy, to become the “PlayStation icon of the future”. Was this a premature comment thrown out there weeks before the game was released? Or was it simply a Publisher so confident in its latest IP it couldn’t wait to express its role in the […]

Here They Lie (PSVR Review) – Walking into Madness

I’m of the firm belief that Virtual Reality and horror are a match made in heaven. So when I finally acquired a PlayStation VR Headset, Here They Lie was among the first titles I wanted to play. Developed by Tangentlemen, Here They Lie, is a three-hour, first-person psychological horror game that places you in the shoes of its main character. […]

Arkham (PSVR Review) – Becoming Batman

“It’s too short!” You hear the internet cry in uproar. Whilst it’s true that Arkham VR clocks in at just over one hour, those who criticise the game’s running time are overlooking one significant aspect: it’s one hour you get to be Batman. Putting on the cowl of the Caped Crusader is something many have long waited for and with […]

Playstation VR Review – Virtually Awesome

Following months of anticipation, pre-order chaos and the all too familiar feeling of disappointment to an “out of stock” notification, the PlayStation VR headset became increasingly more elusive. However, over one hundred days since its original release I now find myself with a lighter wallet and the proud owner of a PSVR Headset. 2016 was the year that VR launched […]

Abzû (PS4 Review) – A Journey Under the Sea

Games that are set under the deep blue always leave me with a certain anxiety. From the stress of ensuring your character doesn’t drown and always has access to an air supply to the uncertainty of what may lie beneath the surface of the waters. However, Abzû removes both of these pressures and instead delivers a serene and enthralling experience. […]

5 Games That Make Me Shed Salty Man-Tears

Video games have come a long way in recent years as the medium has transformed into one of the most elegant and compelling forms of storytelling. In the past, video games would prioritise action, platforming and puzzling to the extent that when I think of some of my favourite games from the 90s, I seldom remember the story line. However, […]

5 of the Best Games of 2016

However, for gamers 2016 was a bit of a treasure trove. From AAA smash hits, indie darlings, anticipated sequels and a game that took […]

Does Dishonored 2 emerge from the shadows of its predecessor?

When a sequel to Dishonored was announced last Summer, I was sceptical that Arkane Studios would be able to recapture what they were able to create with the original. With its immersive world building, unique gameplay and an engaging story of betrayal and revenge, Dishonored rightfully earned the title of ‘Game of the Year’ in 2012. With its second instalment, […]

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles – can the spin-off breathe new life into the franchise?

For the record, I was a huge fan of the early Assassin’s Creed games. The first couple of games were actually some of my favourite titles on the PS3. The concept, stories and interesting game mechanics meant it was a firm favourite. However, with their annual releases, glitches and seeming reluctance to innovate, the franchise lost its appeal. Yet, with […]

Gravity Rush (PSVita Review) – Does it reach the stars or fail to take off?

Games like Gravity Rush don’t come along often. Originally released in 2012 for PSVita, and later remastered for PS4 in 2016, Gravity Rush has a clear artistic style; with its visuals, storytelling and unconventional game mechanics all following a consistent and unique creative vision. The game follows lead protagonist, Kat who is suffering from amnesia and begins the game not […]
