Here are a few things worth considering for Gamers, Friends of Gamers and/or the Family members we’ve kicked off the couch.

Call of Duty MWII, review

It’s CoD time again, and with Call of Duty MWII this year that’s not a bad thing.

Infinity Ward return to the 2019 reboot from the late PS4 cycle, continuing the story they left off.

With a familiar roster of characters and the less grizzled, but still legendary Captain Price front and centre.

Without beating around the bush in a Ghillie suit, this is one of the best Call of Duty campaigns I’ve played in a while.

Shootas, Blood and Teef, Switch review

Shootas, Blood and Teef draws on the rich tapestry of the Warhammer 40k Universe.

There have been many, various FPS, Turn-Based games and my personal favourite the dungeon crawler Inquisitor.

On paper it’s a match made in heaven.

The opportunity to step into the heavy boots of Space Orks, crack some bad Dad jokes and blow shit up, will float many boats.

No Mans Sky, Switch Review

This would be our 4th review of No Mans Sky, safe to say it’s going to be a slightly different treatment.

Back in 2016, Guy and Myself had experiences that were polar opposites. In 2018 Barrie had the blessing of an updated No Mans Sky on Xbox, which pandered to his tastes. Here we are in 2022, 6 whole years later and a raft of free (yes, FREE) updates, that have changed the game significantly.

We’re going back, back to No Mans Sky.

EPOS GTW 270 Hybrid, review

New to our market the GTW 270 from EPOS is a great addition to the family. A set of earbuds with all the hallmarks of the EPOS family.

Delivering easy functionality, fluid connections and some impressive noise cancelling.

This set of Earbuds made me realise something, the wired earpieces that came with my phone are a thing of the past.

LEGO Brawls, Xbox Review

Pitching up against the fan favourites like Smash Bros, All Stars or the more recent Multi-Versus, LEGO brawls had to bring something new. That comes in the form of family friendly LEGO brand humour and customisable mini figures.

It’s a fun game with easy to pick up modes, the unlocks add a bit of excitement and simply plays well.

Avenging Spirit, review

Arcade games in the 90’s were great, Jaleco were a powerhouse and Avenging Spirit was considered a classic in the stable. Lovingly brought back to the living room by Ratalaika Games S.L. its a classic arcade platformer, that deserves to be remembered.

I have a few memories of Avenging Spirit, originally feeding coins into it between college lessons at a greasy cafe way back when. More recently however it cropped up on my Pandora driven Arcade Cab, and I couldn’t help but have a rose-tinted go.
