Beat ‘em Up Royalty: Dragon’s Crown Review

8 out of 10 Great

Ahh, Dragon’s Crown why are you nearly perfect? Why did you have to lean so hard into a controversial art style and that the dialogue around the game focused on breast size rather than the fact that you are a strong gale in the otherwise stagnant waters of the beat ‘em up genre? In other words Dragon’s Crown, should I spend the next decade wondering if you will spawn a sequel, spiritual or direct, in the hopes that the problems will be fixed the next time? Dragon’s Crown surprised me. The enormous sprites, the gorgeous hand painted backgrounds, the way […]

Review – Animal Crossing: New Leaf

I have a confession. Actually, it is more like a confession to an addiction. Animal Crossing has its hooks into me in more ways than I would like to admit.

Review – Fallout Lanius – a Fallout fan film

It can be hard sometimes being a fan. You love something so much, you cherish it with such intensity that it can sometimes become your own life. Yet there are those out there who hate or despise that same something, and those who want to turn it into something it isn’t, something different. Me? I’m a Star Wars fan, so you can imagine the roller coaster ride of the past twenty years, being a fan of a series that constantly updates itself as if it’s trying to keep up instead of standing tall as the innovator it always was.

Review – State of Decay

9 out of 10 Excellent Recommended

The jaded gamer could well be forgiven for casually glancing at State of Decay and thinking ‘just another zombie game.’ And yet, Undead Labs have created an open world zombie apocalypse experience that is unlike anything previously released. Here is a game that is innovative, unique, creative, and one that challenges not only your assumptions about what a ‘zombie game’ can be, but the very way in which you choose to tackle the experience.

I know what you are thinking. Why is Scott reviewing that old game? Isn’t it full of 8 year olds smack talking each other? Doesn’t it have graphics that are 10 years old? Isn’t it a grind? Read on for the answer to all of those questions and more!

Review – Deadpool

This was a game that was always going to be a risk to make. In every moment of Deadpool, you know that High Moon has endeavoured to embrace the diverse facets of this character. Whether villain, anti-hero or fourth-wall-demolitions-expert, the character’s verbose tendencies had to translate from the comics to the video game. However, this also required High Moon Studios to translate two aspects of the Merc with the Mouth that are controversial, both in this game and in general – playful violence and gore, and male superiority. As a lady gamer, it has been very hard to explain why […]

Review – The Last of Us

10 out of 10 Superb Recommended

As I sit here after having finished The Last Of Us, my thoughts and opinions swirling through my mind, I wonder how I can communicate all I’ve just experienced. How do you put into words what has been the most emotionally intense experience I have ever had whilst playing a video game? In the end, I expect it’s simply a matter of being completely honest, and the truth is The Last of Us is a perfectly paced, perfectly planned and perfectly realised game.
