Somerville Byte Size Review (XSX)

Somerville, the debut release from Jumpship. A new independent studio out of Surrey in the UK co-founded by Dino Patti of Playdead (Limbo and Inside) fame.

And this history is very evident within Somerville. Is it to the same calibre of Inside and Limbo? Not quite, but there is still enjoyment to be had here.

A Plague Tale: Requiem Review (XSX)

A Plague Tale: Innocence was a bit of a sleeper hit. Well, to be honest it was down right over looked by many.

Asobo Studio came up with an absolutely stellar piece of gaming in both the story telling and execution departments. The sister and brother duo of Amicia and Hugo de Rune were really put through the ringer in their first trial set in 14th century France.

Arcade Paradise Review (XSX)

Arcade Paradise is a game that has me squarely in its sights. I have been lucky enough to go through evolution of coin-op gaming.

From the lone Space Invaders in the corner of the Family Bar at the local pub. Through the side room at the fish n’ chip shop filled with Commando, Ikari Warriors, TMNT, and the likes.

Arcade Paradise is letting us relive that golden era of side rooms filled with glorious fun.

Astro A10 Gen 2 Headset Review

This day and age it seems we all have more than one set of headphones. From an everyday carry set of earbuds to an all singing, all dancing set of headphones for home use.

Many of you may even have dedicated sets for each purpose. Movies, music, working from home, fitness, and gaming.

Each purpose has different requirements and demands from a headset and the Astro range have been at the forefront of gaming headsets for a long time now.
