Helldivers 2, Review (it’s awesome!)

In recent months I have struggled to find a game that really gels with me. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve played a number of titles recently that I’ve enjoyed. But it’s been a while since something’s really grabbed me- since I’ve played a game that I think about even when I’m not playing.

Then, Helldivers 2 released.

The Last of Us 2: Remastered, Review

The Last of Us 2 (TLoU2) was the swansong title for the PS4 in 2020 and it was AMAZING.

Hyperbole aside, it is the best video game ever made. So, Sony have seen fit to drop a native PS5 version and pack in some other goodies, plus a ‘rouge-like’ mode for good measure.

After replaying it all for this review I can say with confidence…it is STILL one of my favourite video games of all time!

Armoured Core 6: Fires of Rubicon, Review

When I heard “AC6” (Armoured Core 6: Fires of Rubicon) was getting the From Software treatment, I instantly dismissed the prospect of a mech-souls-like, as “not my jam”! BUT….wow, I was wrong in my initial dissmissal.

AC6 is not a souls game in a mech skin. From Software have remembered their roots in the series and created a unique, approachable, and importantly fun title that encourages trial and error, without the soul crushing punishment for just giving something a go.
