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.

Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart PC

Ratchet & Clank are one of PlayStation’s most endearing duos, first appearing on the PlayStation 2 in 2002 from developer Insomniac Games.

The pair were a resounding success on Sony’s games console, and over the years appeared in such classics as Tools of Destruction, Going Commando and Up Your Arsenal.

Now we have Rift Apart PC.

Dead Space Remake, Review

I don’t do scary Movies, scary TV or scary Video Games. I just don’t enjoy them, never have…and never will?

Yes indeed, confusion abounds because I love the Dead Space franchise. The sci-fi setting, the stunning graphics and immersive in-game UI all sold me on this niche genre in 2008.

Making Dead Space an all-time fav of my Xbox 360 generation.

Its 2023 and in keeping with the current market trend, EA have seen fit to have Motive Studios “remake” Dead Space… and wow. It is very, very good.

So it should be though, as the bones the remake is built on are just as solid now, as they were 15 years ago.

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.

God of War: Ragnarök, PS5 Review

“Boy, this isn’t game!” – Yes, it is…it’s God of War Ragnarök, one of the best games around!

God of War (2018) was one of the stand-out games of the PS4 generation.

The next entry, God of War: Ragnarök has finally arrived on PS5 and once again Kratos and his “Boy”, Atreus, have a new adventure through Norse mythology.

After almost 20hrs I can say with confidence, it will be atop many Game of the Year lists in 2022.

Saints Row, Review

Saints Row, a franchise that has been around the block a few times. Originally landing as a semi-serious alternative to GTA, but with its tongue firmly planted in a cheek. Nature of cheek to be confirmed.

Over the years the games have transitioned into bawdy locker room joke fest with some absolutely ridiculous scenarios. Arguably for the fanbase, the more ridiculous they get the better.

You can’t mistake a Saint’s game. Over the top weapons, puerile humour and hi-octane, yet forgiving action. This iteration does bear those marks, but…

Submerged: Hidden Depths preview (PC)

If you’re looking for a game that was the very definition of a relaxing experience, then Submerged: Hidden Depths could well be the game you’re looking for.

Coming from Australia-based development studio Uppercut Games, Hidden Depths has players guide a young woman, Miku, as she explores the ruins of a flooded city, having to heal the city from a black vine-like substance called The Mass.

Hidden Depths is a sequel, I guess, to Uppercut’s game Submerged from 2015 and I’m able to tell you about my first hour with latest game.

Horizon: Forbidden West, PS5 Review

If anyone had doubts that Playstation is the unquestionable home of top-tier, master-class, 3rd person action games, then Horizon: Forbidden West will put any remaining scepticism to rest.

Guerrilla have taken the awesome 2017 ‘Horizon’ I.P and improved on every single element. Not so much as to lose what was unique about Zero Dawn though, they have just refined the overall formula to get about as close to perfection in the Open World genre as one could hope for.

Horizon Forbidden West delivers its story under the assumption that gamers have played and finished Zero Dawn. If you haven’t played it, then… you are crazy! Stop reading and go and play it first!! Or at the very least watch a good story run-down on YouTube.

Alan Wake Remastered: Have torch, will travel

Alan Wake is not your typical video game hero.

He’s not a former soldier skilled in the art of warfare or a wronged man out for revenge: He’s a writer in a tweed sports jacket with leather elbow pads (over the top of a hoodie) who runs out of puff after he’s sprinted for a few seconds. He’s an every day man.

Alice. He’s hoping to cure the writer’s block that has stifled his creative flow for two years but he quickly finds out that all is not what it seems in this seemingly sleepy town.
