Horizon Chase Turbo – Review

No stranger to racing games, I’m back with another review this time with ‘Horizon Chase Turbo’ developed and published by Brazilian Company, Aquiris Game Studio. Instantly I felt a wave of nostalgia wash over me (being a product of the 80’s) as I started this bad boy up. Now its

7th Sector – Review

With Cyberpunk delayed till later in 2020, how, oh how was I going to get my futuristic fix? Now, while ‘7th Sector’ by Носков Сергей isn’t the RPG I am frothing to get my hands on, this side scroller puzzler, now available on console from Steam, will certainly slay that

Bookbound Brigade – Review

Bookbound Brigade, a game by developed by Digital Tales USA and published by Intragames, is not a new genre but a new take on the classic Metroid and ‘Castlevania’ of old. The new term is a mixture; Metroidvania. Bookbound Brigade is a beautiful, 2D side scroller full of imaginative worlds

Jumanji: The Video Game – Review

Where do I start. What started off as a well respected movie by adults and children alike, followed in the footsteps of many cherished movies with a rebooted; updated for newer audiences with a few tweaks to keep up with the times. Evolving from a movie about a board game,

Need For Speed Heat – Review

I think it’s fair to say that the past couple of Need for Speed games haven’t really felt like they’ve lived up to the older games in the franchise. Personally, I loved the days of Underground, Most Wanted and Carbon, so when EA announced Heat, my eyes lit up and

The Outer Worlds – Review

Given how much I adore the Fallout franchise, it often comes as a surprise to people when they find out I never played Fallout: New Vegas. The main reason for this, is that I never really felt like anyone but Bethesda could pull off a game like that. Having said

ReadySet Heroes – Review

I’m normally a big fan of dungeon crawlers. Making my way across the map, exploring every nook and cranny looking for that epic weapon, or that one armour piece that makes you resistant to all damage types. Leveling up a character and choosing my own destiny has a huge appeal

Stela – Review

Stela developed by SkyBox Labs, not known for horroresque type platformers, is a beautifully grim tale following our hero, Stela, who must face both physical and mental demons through a desolate and decaying world. Anyone that knows me, knows these thriller type, indie creepy games are as far as I’ll

Code Vein – Review

Back in May, I was fortunate enough to be given access to the Close Beta for Code Vein. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to play as much as I would have liked due to other work commitments, and I didn’t really progress as far as I probably should have, but what

Borderlands 3 – Review

There are so many looter – shooter games available these days that we are spoiled for choice. From Destiny to The Division and even Anthem, all of them offer a vast amount of loot to be found and a seemingly limitless amount of potential to build the character the way

Hunt: Showdown – Review

Clean underwear, that’s what you will need when playing Hunt: Showdown. I am pretty sure I soiled mine just in the tutorial! Hunt: Showdown reeks with elements of games such as Resident Evil, DayZ & even a bit of an old favorite of mine, Hexen. While the horror genre is
