Marvel’s Iron Man VR – Review

Ever since the movie premiered back in May 2008, Iron Man has been my favourite Marvel character. Not only is Tony Stark an incredibly cool billionaire playboy philanthropist, the thought of flying around clad in a near indestructible suit of armour always appealed to me. Needless to say, I was

Fly. Punch. Boom. The title says it all. Get ready to “Fly” around a colourful and interactive arena while you “Punch” your pals and then “Boom”- it’s Game Over. Fly Punch Boom gives you all the feeling of an epic anime fighter- however instead of skill, victory is decided by

Disintegration – Review

I’ve always been fascinated by the concept of robots and A.I., just the idea and imagery of a robot or android with it’s own intelligence adapting and learning enhancements, is an incredible concept. Didn’t help when movies like Terminator and Robocop came out and threw hardcore violence into the mix.

Minecraft Dungeons – Review

I was very late to the Minecraft craze, I was pessimistic that something that looked like a kid’s game could have any sort of depth or complexity that I for one crave as a gamer. Boy, was I wrong. I eventually jumped onto that bandwagon and wow was I obsessed.

Mafia II: Definitive Edition – Review

Given its remarkable similarities with the Grand Theft Auto franchise, it’s a wonder why I hadn’t tried the Mafia series all those years ago when it was released. As we approach the 10th anniversary of Mafia II, games developer Hangar 13 have been working on something in secret, something many

Ion Fury – Review

Being a bit of an older gamer, I was around when first person shooters started making their way onto computers. The likes of Duke Nukem 3D, the very first DOOM title, Wolfenstein 3D, and my personal favourite, Redneck Rampage. These were the games that every aspiring gamer had in their
