Review – Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker

9 out of 10 Excellent

Ah, Toad. The butt of many jokes for all those years, the little guys that followed Princess Peach around everywhere before crying in disbelief (again and again) as she was whisked away by Bowser, helpless and unsure of what to do next. Let’s be honest, they were never considered true heroes in the same vein as Mario or Yoshi, aside from a few cameos in Mario Bros. 2 or Mario Kart.

Turn-based strategy games can be a mixed bag. If you don’t have a compelling narrative or something to pull the audience in, boredom can set rather quickly as you take your turn, wait a few minutes, take another turn, wait again…

Review: Sunset Overdrive

When one thinks of a zombie apocalypse, a vibrant metropolis crawling energy drink–infused mutations usually would not be among the first visuals to come to mind, but that’s exactly what Sunset Overdrive is. The latest title by developer Insomniac Games takes the tired trope and supercharges it in a third-person shooter with colourful characters, fast-paced platforming and the most unlikely of projectile launchers that pass as weapons.

Review – Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes

9.5 out of 10 Excellent

Every so often a game comes along that I enjoy so much I struggle to find words to describe it, due to me not believing I can do the game justice. Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is one of those games. It combines a variety of intertwined systems with great replay value to create a game that’s enjoyable to not only play through to completion, but to toy around with and experiment. It’s not only a fantastic game, but it’s also a brilliant PC port that shows other developers how it’s done – it runs well with reasonable system […]

Review – Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare

The Call of Duty franchise has seen some huge highs and some equally low lows throughout its lifetime. With Advanced Warfare, it is clear that Sledgehammer Games and Activision have done their best to re-invigorate the series, combining the strengths the games are know for with new additions to keep the franchise fresh. The result is a polished, well-designed game that has a few rough edges, but not enough to lessen the appeal of the game.

Never Alone 1
7 out of 10 Good

Never Alone explores a first-of-its-kind collaboration between game developer, Upper One Games, Cook Inlet Tribal Council, and the Alaska Native community to reinvigorate Iñupiaq folklores that were once previously only passed through generations by traditional verbal storytelling. Combined with its story, the game’s art style, music and narration compounds into a memorable experience that will give players an appreciation for the insight into a fascinating culture.

Review – The Marvellous Miss Take

9 out of 10 Excellent Recommended

One of the token, almost assumed facets of stealth gaming is that the atmosphere has to brood, invoking tones of darkness, and a mood that takes itself not an inch short of serious; the presumption being that somewhere in there, they’d find their groove. In its most fundamental core mechanics, The Marvellous Miss Take is undoubtedly a stealth game, though the developer Wonderstruck Games have gone back to the foundations of play that informed the genre, a childhood game of cat and mouse.

Review – Icewind Dale Enhanced Edition

Buying a game used to be different. Sure, if you weren’t around for it, you could put it down to the ravings of an old man doped-up on nostalgia, pining for a time that never existed. We’re at a point now where even the case a game used to come in is optional, while the days of manuals being included are behind us and those side-books that related to the world of the game? Those are now just rumours written in the wind, scoffed at as mis-remembered anecdotes to those that can’t imagine a world with printed material.
