Midnight Suns, review

Midnight Suns is a big game and it came to us late in the year. So we thought it was best to let Dylan and Guy have a crack over their Christmas breaks. They put their heads together and well, at the least, I feel seen…

Thanks to 2k for supplying the codes and the team for putting in the time.

The Entropy Centre Review, by a diehard Portal fan-girl.

Guest writer Nina, returns to the fray with a detailed looks at this Indie Portal wannabe, The Entropy Centre.

I need to come clean: I am an absolute diehard Portal fan. Proof of this can be found in one of my earliest Koru-Cottage pieces, where I essentially spent a paragraph riffing about how Portal 2 was one of the best narrative experiences I’ve ever had.

The announcement of The Entropy Centre, developed by indie dev Stubby Games, reawakened that Portal-shaped spark in my gamer heart that had been dormant for years.

But when I was given the chance to review it, I became apprehensive.

Xmas Gift List, 2022

Xmas Gift Guide this year? We hear that a lot.

So maybe, in this crazy post pandemic love-in we should give it a go, before we get to the end of “Cost of Living Level” Boss.

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

Please note – any links will be for information, not comission.

Gotham Knights, Review

Gotham Knights, oh, how the mighty have fallen. WB Games in conjunction with the geniuses at Rocksteady Games crafted the best super hero games ever made.

The Batman Arkham games revolutionised 3rd person brawler games and still hold up today. However, with Rocksteady moving onto a new I.P and WB Montreal now taking up the “Batman Universe” games, we have as a result received Gotham Knights.

And Oh…how the mighty have fallen.

WRC Generations, Review

I am a massive Rally Motorsport fan, both IRL and in video games.

Colin McRae Rally on the PSOne is still one of my all-time favourite video games. In recent years, Rally fans have only had two IPs to choose from.  ‘Dirt’ from Codemasters and the official “WRC” titles from Kylotonn (KT) Games.

But with EA swallowing up Codemasters last year, and then taking the “WRC” licence from Kylotonn from 2023 onwards. 2022s WRC Generations is the last outing for the WRC franchise under KT. So, how did their WRC swansong stack up?

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.

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. 

What with the Hundred Years’ War, Hugo’s illness, and all those rats…

Destiny’s Sword (PC)

Destiny’s Sword describes itself as a “living graphic novel”

To me it’s more akin to the Choose Your Own adventure books that were common place when I was growing up – and that’s not a bad thing, believe me.

Told through comic book-style panels, Destiny’s Sword has you commanding a planetary defense force as it works to keep the peace on the planet Cyris.
