Why Shadow of the Tomb Raider Made Me Love Gaming Again

Some may, or may not, for the most part, have noticed this blog took somewhat of a hiatus. In the midst of dealing with general daily life, I admit that gaming took somewhat of a back seat.

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice Review

For years, the video game industry has portrayed mental health in a negative light; inherently depicting a character with mental illness as “bad”. We only need to look to games like Outlast and Resident Evil for examples of villains where their motivations behind their actions are simply “because they’re crazy”.

Unravel Review – An Indie Gem or a Tangled Mess?

If I were to choose just one word to describe Coldwood’s 2016 2D platforming puzzler, Unravel, it would be “charming”. Everything about this game oozes charm; from the muted visuals, unique puzzles and of course, our knitted hero, Yarny.

5 Reasons Aloy is En-Route to Becoming a Gaming Icon

When I first reviewed Horizon Zero Dawn, I referenced the fact that Sony UK product manager, Jon Edwards, commented that he believed lead protagonist, Aloy, would become the “PlayStation icon of the future”. At the time, I remember thinking that these comments were made a little prematurely seeing as the game hadn’t even been released. However, after spending an unhealthy […]
