Back in 2013, DmC: Devil May Cry was released. Developed by Ninja Theory this was a reboot of the classic Devil May Cry (DMC) franchise which debuted on the PS2 in 2001. At the time a lot of DMC fans thought this was the death of the original hack and slash franchise. There was quite a bit of uproar within the DMC community, and now 2 years later it seems as though Capcom have listened. This year we will see [...]

When Sony first introduced a new scheme called Playstation Plus, my initial reaction was lukewarm to say the least. I didn’t think it was a bad idea, but I also didn’t think it would be the greatest thing ever. See, long before the PS4 and Xbox One came to rule the roost, online play was free and extra games, to me anyway, were a novelty. So I gave it a miss, but thankfully my Father didn’t. I consequently benefitted from [...]

As you may already know I am a huge Dragon ball fan and have an extensive collection of games, with the last one being Dragon ball: Battle of Z which was a major disappointment. I then heard that there was a plan to create a new game which was meant to be so much better than the last one, that being said I was interested in the new title for one reason and that was the mysteriouse unknown character with [...]

Back in the late 90′s/early 00′s extreme sport games were at the hight of popularity. I like many gamers out there spent hours trying to nail the perfect tricks on games such as Matt Hoffman’s BMX and Tony Hawks Pro Skater. Since then games such as this have seemed to have dropped off the planet. True we had a pretty decent SSX game in 2012 but it didn’t have some of the magic the original extreme sports games had. Now [...]

If you have a successful franchise that revolves around one man and his sniper rifles, then what is the next logical step for additional content? Yep, if you said zombies then you are correct. However, I’m guessing it’s one of the last things that most of you would have said. Nevertheless, Nazi Army Trilogy celebrates its zombie-themed downloadable content (DLC) by re-imagining it in 1080p whilst running it at 60 frames-per-second. The game features the two DLC packs from Sniper [...]

It feels good to be back and writing again for PlusXP! (Cheap pop) Ok enough of that. Hot off the heels of The Order: 1886 being released; the question of morality in gaming has once again reared its ugly head. Sequels, tie-ins, DLC etc. There are so many things for people to complain about nowadays that I’ve just realised I’m complaining about complaining. For now, I’ll delve into the hot topic of longevity in a game. The Order’s length is [...]

Space Invaders, one of the few games ever created that when you mention its very name a huge amounts of nostalgia builds up for a lot of old school gamers and nerds. It is in essence the very first game that got a generation of children hooked on gaming. So when Puppy Games released Titan Attacks, a more modern take on the classic on the granddaddy of all games,  I jumped at the opportunity to give it a shot. My first [...]

Monster hunting has appealed to gamers ever since the classic Capcom franchise, Monster Hunter, came to PlayStation 2 consoles all the way back in 2004. With that in mind, Turtle Rock Studios has taken the concept  and introduced their own multiplayer spin to monster hunting with Evolve – A 4 vs 1 multiplayer game that pits four humans against one monster in an all out battle to the death! In Evolve, nature is wiping out the human colonies on a [...]

At this years EGX there was a huge range of games showcased for every games console, with the expo a great chance to show off the best of the latest releases for the next gen. One of the many games that was being shown off was Evolve, a game that definitely peaked my interest. This game had very little information about it available (not for lack of looking) so when the opportunity to play it came up I jumped at [...]
