The Dragon Age Inquisition character creator is glorious

As Bioware fans will no doubt tell you, one of the things that make Bioware games special are their in depth character creators.  It’s become a right of passage for many to spend large amounts of time crafting their own heroes, and by the looks of the character creator in Dragon Age Inquisition, that tradition won’t be ending any time soon.  Read on to check it out for yourself.

The lone wolf’s last hunt – a Destiny review

7 out of 10 Good

So there’s this little game called Destiny.  Perhaps you’ve heard of it.  No other game in recent memory has had such an enormous, prolonged marketing blitz before launch.  And no game has had such a divisive reaction from fans and critics after launch.  Is Destiny a soulless failure?  Is it the future of gaming?  Is it both?  Destiny is, perhaps by design, a game that is difficult to love, yet impossible to put down.  So forming a coherent opinion on it has been difficult.  How do I judge something that, by its creators own admission, is far from complete?

The Sims 4 – Review

8 out of 10 Great

I have a love-hate relationship with The Sims franchise. And the reason I love it is also the reason I hate it – it’s incredibly addictive. With its simple premise of guiding a sim through their life, celebrating their successes and drowning their sorrows, the series has found a very strong fan base that gobbles up new releases as though they are mac and cheese delights cooked by a sim with a culinary skill of 12+. After turning my back on the series, I revisted the Sims to review The Sims 4, and damn if it hasn’t become more addictive […]

Hands on preview with Battlefield Hardline

I had the chance this week to have a hands-on preview of the upcoming Battlefield: Hardline, the newest instalment of the Battlefield franchise being developed by Visceral Games. It’s a significant departure from the military theme that’s been so endemic to the previous games, harkening back to the old playground favourite, Cops and Robbers; a relic from a time when kids could point their fingers at another and shout BANG! without being brought before the vice-principal. Ah, but the game.

Preview – Wasteland 2

Everyone loves a post-apocalyptic RPG and if you like your post-apocalypses gritty and mature, you can’t get much better than Wasteland 2. Successfully crowdfunded through Kickstarter and developed by inXile Entertainment, Wasteland 2 is the first official sequel to the 1988 Wasteland, and if my hands-on with the title is anything to go on, the game is shaping up to be one of the best releases of 2014.

Tales of Xillia 2 – Review

8 out of 10 Great

Full disclosure – I have never played a JRPG before. In fact, I know next to nothing about the whole JRPG verse. So, when the opportunity arose to review Tales of Xillia 2, naturally I questioned my ability to provide a well-informed assessment of the latest game in the series. Given my lack of knowledge on the history of this game, my review will not focus on the strength of the story or the improvements on gameplay from the previous instalments. Instead, this review is structured from a newcomers perspective, and provides a general summary of how the game looks, […]
