50 Shades SUCKS – So play The Sexy Brutale on Steam instead… Prize Draw

Snazy title I know! So it’s that time of year again, where being single sucks. Everywhere you go you see couples like some kind of strange apocalypse scenario where only people who are paired survive and that’s why they’re so smug. On the flip side, being single is awesome for many reasons that you can see on any other day because you as an individual are special and you don’t need another to complete you. Well this applies to you, I mean I found myself the perfect wife so I suppose I’m ok if the apocalypse comes. Still anyways I’ve … Continue reading 50 Shades SUCKS – So play The Sexy Brutale on Steam instead… Prize Draw

Dragonball FighterZ – PS4

Kaaaameeeeehhaaaameeeeehaaaaa! There we go. That’s another Late to the Party review done. Rinse and repeat surely? I’ve obviously been a little excited for this with the beta winning against Dissidia and the various ways to deal with the cravings. So was it worth the wait? Short answer, yes. Just watch the intro for more. It’s like every kind of anime Dragonball fan-service in rock cgi glory. Rock, GOKU, Rock, VEGETA, Rock and so on. They’ve nailed that Guilty Gear esque metal smashing madness into muscles and flashes of light. Oh the game? Well it’s good as well I suppose… Seriously though, … Continue reading Dragonball FighterZ – PS4

Mud runners a Spintires game – PS4

Who doesn’t love Euro Truck Simulator? I know that’s not the subject of this review but bear with me there is a point. Sometimes all you want to do is play a light simulator, pop on a podcast or some music and relax. Then other times you want to play something a little more complicated like Train Simulator|TS2018. Spintires has always been described as a mud simulator and it definitely straddles the ground between light and heavy, a solid medium simulator. Mud runners does not start off on its strongest foot, instead it slips deep in the mud and falls … Continue reading Mud runners a Spintires game – PS4

DRAGON BALL FighterZ Open Beta VS DISSIDIA FINAL FANTASY NT Open Beta – Exp Ops

It’s been a funny old-time for January 2018, It’s typically a dry period for video game releases where we regret eating too much, catch up on Christmas presents and dig into the New Year sales that GOG and Humble Store provide. This year we seem to have numerous Beta Tests and big titles getting their releases within a short period of time. I’ve already covered the fantastic Monster Hunter World Beta that has continued to run on and off this month (click here for those first impressions). This weekend was another busy one but a little different not 1 but … Continue reading DRAGON BALL FighterZ Open Beta VS DISSIDIA FINAL FANTASY NT Open Beta – Exp Ops

The Sexy Brutale – PS4

This one has been on the radar for a while, quirky indie looking game with murder and interesting plot. Lets see if this really was Game of the Year 2017 material or if it’s best off staying in last year with all the other horrors. What better way to start the reviews for 2018! As soon as you start up the game it’s off to a great start and personally sets the tone for the entire game. The title screen music is so good I’ve sat and listened for a good few minutes and the brilliantly crafted artwork just sells … Continue reading The Sexy Brutale – PS4

RabiRibi (PS4)

I’ve been avoiding this review. Thinking about anything other than this. Seriously unprofessional I know but I’ve hated thinking about this game. You know when you learn how CGI is made and you watch a film like Dungeons and Dragons and just cringe so many times yet feel sorry for the makers who clearly worked far too hard on it? When you see documentaries of beaming pride when you know the end result is just a mess of too many ideas crammed into unworkable nonsense? RabiRibi is that for me. I love anime style videogames and there are so many … Continue reading RabiRibi (PS4)

Danganronpa 1-2 Reload (PS4)

Ding Dong Ping Pong. Welcome to a murder spree! Danganronpa was a revelation for me. I’d gotten tired with visual novel games being terrible dating sims wrapped in a text and image bundle, then along came Danganronpa on the PSP to show that they could be a twisted unique murder mystery and my world has never been the same since. Would I have given Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors a go if I’d not completed Dangan1&2? Probably not and I’d have missed out on many other classics. Monokuma has now started to appear in other titles and has become … Continue reading Danganronpa 1-2 Reload (PS4)

The Sims4 (PS4)

Escapism and videogames is nothing new, we all have bad days and find solace playing a few rounds of Street Fighter or Snake on the phone. The Sims has always been a series that hasn’t appealed enough to play for more than a few hours and wonder why it demands the time investment it requires to get anything done. My wife (Elouise) on the other hand has been steadily playing the games from the original “The Sims” all the way up to The Sims3 ‘with pets’ and finds it almost has a Minecraft quality. The ability to build up something … Continue reading The Sims4 (PS4)

Blue Reflection (PS4)

Sometimes I like to step out of a comfort zone, challenge myself, try something a little different. So when I saw Blue Reflection a Jrpg about Schoolgirls and Ballet I figured “Why not?”. I’ve an experience of magic girl anime and various JRPGs I’ll be fine…… So as I go into this with only a faint understanding of what the game is I’m expecting Puella Magi Madoka Magica mixed with Persona and maybe FFX-2. The main story the main driving force to continue through the game. It focuses on Hinako a famous child ballet dancer who severely injured her knee … Continue reading Blue Reflection (PS4)
