The Spectrum Retreat Review

The Spectrum Retreat Review

Dan Smith is living the dream. In 2016, he won the BAFTA Young Game Designers Award for the prototype of his game, ‘The Spectrum Retreat’, at just 18-years-old. Now, with the backing of Ripstone Games, he is releasing the game for Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC this month.

Ozobot Review

Ozobot Review

The Jetson family had Rosie the Robot Maid. Doctor Who had K-9. The Fantastic Four had H.E.R.B.I.E. Having a personal robot at your beck and call to aid, support you is one of advances of the modern age.

Lego The Incredibles Review

Lego The Incredibles Review

It has been some 14 years in the making but finally The Incredibles family has been Legoized. Besides being included in the now regrettably defunct Disney Infinity game – Yes, I enjoyed the Pirates of the Caribbean, Incredibles and the Star Wars a whole heck of a lot – and the entertaining Rise of the Underminer, Frozone and the Parr family haven’t carved out their niche in the video game universe until now. Lego The Incredibles does chisel out a place for them but with mixed results.

Vampyre review

Vampyre review

Sure, they have super strength, can turn into a wolf or fog and live forever but it still sucks being a vampire. And, I am talking a REAL vampire not any of those teenage sparkle vampires either.

Detroit: Become Human Review

Detroit: Become Human Review

When I was a kid I remember the release of Martin Scorsese’s The Last Temptation of Christ. Not because I saw the film or was even curious about seeing it. I just recall the firestorm surrounding it. Despite the disclaimer that the film was not based on the Gospels but just Nikos Kazantzakis’ fictional account of the life of Christ, the release was plagued by massive protests.

God of War (2018) Review

God of War (2018) Review

Video game dads aren’t exactly Father of the Year material. Bowser and Donkey Kong allow their children to tempt all manner of dangers. Mr. Burnside from Resident Evil: Code Veronica rips off the Umbrella Corporation and that gets his wife shot full of holes and him, his son imprisoned.

Sea of Thieves Review

Sea of Thieves Review

Ever since making huge waves at Microsoft’s keynote back in 2016, Sea of Thieves has gotten a lot of attention and a lot of hype. The news was even more tantalizing because storied developer, Rare, was at the helm of this fresh new IP. One could say a lot is on this swashbuckling journey for Rare and Microsoft.

Secret of Mana Remake Review

Secret of Mana Remake Review

Originally released in 1993 on the SNES, Secret of Mana provided JRPG fans with a solid yet straightforward role-playing experience. Its characters, narrative and combat were no doubt familiar to fans of the genre but still made for a welcome experience in a time where JRPGs were a dime a dozen.

Payday 2 Nintendo Switch Review

Payday 2 Nintendo Switch Review

When I was growing up there is no way in world that a game like Payday 2 would ever be released on a “family friendly” Nintendo console. Robbing banks? Killing police officers? No way that content would ever see the light of day in Mario’s world.

Mulaka Review

Mulaka Review

Following the events of Dishonored 2, Dishonored: The Peeress and The Price takes readers on a daring mission with the royal family of Dunwall, Emily Kaldwin and her father Corvo.
