The Tenuous Loop aka why this heatwave is ruining standards

There are more reviews and big pieces in progress but I don’t do well in this heat so apologies in advance… Why Mario Sunshine is the greatest Mario game for playing in this never-ending heat wave Mario sunshine is just the best isn’t it? From the opening hub to the closing stages it’s full of charming quirks and just so much water and liquid that you could easily let your mind wander and feel like a cooling breeze has floated past your dried out husk of a brain. Firing back up the Wii while connecting to the TV on component … Continue reading The Tenuous Loop aka why this heatwave is ruining standards

Games to play during the #HeatwaveUK of doom

I realise some of you think I’m exaggerating and some from other countries always scoff with, “heh you think that’s hot?” but you are all each and every one of you wrong (There are serious reasons for that but lets just say it’s too hot to bother listing those here and carry on with this classic shitposting as is ey) Currently the UK is now converting itself into a scene from Mad Max where the dust clouds rip through the plains and wherever the sunlight can touch is burnt to a cinder upon contact. What can you do to survive … Continue reading Games to play during the #HeatwaveUK of doom

BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle – PS4

There’s a first time for everything and here we are! The first Early Bird review! These are classic style reviews where the code has been provided before launch (in this case the game is launching Friday 22nd June – TODAY when this is posted!) so read on and see if its worth your money and time! Don’t be worried about collusion I don’t work for any publisher or developer unless the public sector decides they are drastically shifting their plans in future… On paper this games concept still baffles me. Take a 2D fighter that’s had four instances now and … Continue reading BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle – PS4

Vampyr – PS4

When you play a horror game you expect a certain amount of tropes to turn up and a vampire focused game is no different. Even if it’s the Masquerade, the Legacy of Kain or even the Buffy video games there’s always the central theme of blood and then the rest of the game is wrapped up in it. Suffice to say I was ready for a new Masquerade game, a ‘dark’ moody RPG with plenty of dialogue to sink my teeth into. Just a shame I didn’t check to see if it had a pulse first. Having a game set in … Continue reading Vampyr – PS4

2 days of PSVR – Down with the sickness

Remember when the press hyped up the 3D effect of the Nintendo 3DS at E3 back in 2010? When everyone in the press were falling over themselves saying how Nintendo had raised the bar and created something magical? Then we all got one and found the 3D was interesting for about a nanosecond before it was turned off to be forgotten about until one or two legendary titles got the 3D aspect so spot on you got a better experience through it. VR for me is just like that. I’ve always loved trying new ways of playing video games from … Continue reading 2 days of PSVR – Down with the sickness

What to do if your craving BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle

So you’ve finished playing the beta (click here for my take on it)and want more but you’re not sure what to do with yourself. We’ve all been there (I know I have previously) but it’s ok I’m here to help! There’s plenty of options so lets rock! Play BlazBlue: Central Fiction on PS4 Playing the previous BlazBlue is a fairly obvious start but it’s often overlooked which is a shame as the game is enormous. If your on a budget and want a blisteringly fast paced 2D anime fighter that will last for single player modes and options, you can’t go wrong … Continue reading What to do if your craving BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle
