Wolfenstein: The New Order – PS4

2014 seems a lifetime ago. Well 4 years to be exact, still we know how games are hard to keep track of. Occasionally a big hitter will slip by you if not for budget or time constraints. Wolfenstein has always been on “the list” and the sequel is high on it but other releases got in the way and one thing lead to another and I’m running out of excuses damn it. Finally I’ve made time to go kill nazis! I’ve needed this more than I realised. A well crafted tightly made, Bond/Indiana style brain-off kill Nazi first person shooter. … Continue reading Wolfenstein: The New Order – PS4

Metal Gear Survive – PS4

Well I’ve played the beta and I’ve put off playing this as long as I could. Time to get on with the review and let you lovely people know if it’s as bad as it looks. Contrary to its packaging, Metal Gear Survive is not a stealth action video game. Just in the same way Destiny isn’t a fantastic story based shooter, both are MMO games dressed in a different genres clothing. On the disc (or download purchase) is a client that allows you to sign in and play the game purchased. In both of these games the online game … Continue reading Metal Gear Survive – PS4

Dynasty Warriors 9 – PS4

“If you don’t have nothing nice to say don’t say anything at all”, an adage that’s pretty much how you should go in life. Still I’m not a religious man but, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” has always sat better with me. Why am I thinking such deep thoughts about a game review you ask? Well, I played Dynasty Warriors 9 at ComicCom last year. It was fun but there were a few niggling issues (also minor frame rate issues), so I figured they’d be patched by release and the rest of the game would … Continue reading Dynasty Warriors 9 – PS4

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

Metal Gear Survive – Exp Ops

This is my 80-year-old chocolate youtube video. I know it’s going to be terrible, give me a sickness and I simply do it for the views. Metal Gear + Multiplayer zombie survival = something nobody has ever asked for (well except the Konami executive who wishes the game division would just go away). Still it could be a hidden gem. There are plenty of quality staff still desperate to release a good game and prove they can do it without Kojima lets see how it goes. Positive thinking, no good going into this expecting a trash fire of a game. … Continue reading Metal Gear Survive – 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

Looking forward to 2018!

018 is going to be very busy at the start of the year! So many games are getting an early release it’s going to be hard to keep up. Still how could 2018 be any worse than 2017? Don’t worry though, ElderlyGoose as always has you covered and here’s my list (who doesn’t love lists?) for my most looking forward to games for 2018! Looking forward to…. 26th Jan – Dragon Ball FighterZ – PS4 KAAAAMMEEEEEHHAAAAMMMEEEEEHAAAAAAAA! Who isn’t looking forward to this?! It’s been a shocker even for Bandai Namco who pushed back the release date of this just to … Continue reading Looking forward to 2018!

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)
