Contributed by CJ A little history .. A good few years ago the original Etrian Odyssey tore colossal strips of time from my life. Memories long past of pouring beefy stretches of time into 16-bit classic Dungeon Master, transitioning wonderfully from the dinky bedroom portable telly I had as a blighter, through to the even tinier window through which the modern day me gleefully gazed at Atlus’ Nintendo DS classic. The original Etrian Odyssey has you bringing a group of [...]

Short of marrying it, I would do anything for my PS4. It’s like the perfect partner. It gives me so much fun, pleasure (not in that way) and it never asks for anything in return. But if something did happen to me and my PS4, we have a falling out and I leave it; I can go back to my PS3 which I still play a lot thanks to Playstation Plus. Just a side note, I have never engaged in [...]

While I was at the previewing of the latest Curve Studios games, I was able to have a look Mousecraft, one of the most interesting games I have seen in a while. Mousecraft is quite a unique one if I must say so and the aim of the game is to get three mice across a stage to a pressure pad with cheese. The only way to do that is to arrange a set of blocks so that the mice [...]

The year is 2014, it’s the first proper year for the next-gen consoles and we are going to see games that will defy the laws of what is possible for. Stunning graphics, gripping and immersive gameplay, stories and online play that will keep you entertained for so long with their outstanding qualities……..Rambo: The Video Game doesn’t come close to satisfying any of these criteria. I have seen the first 3 Rambo films and enjoyed them all in one way or [...]

I recently had the chance to look at some of the latest games from indie developer Curve Studios. The first game I played was Titans Attacks, a game that is a lot like a modern version of Galaga or Space Invaders. However unlike its these arcade classics there are more game play elements, such ship upgrades and new weapons. The story of Titan Attacks is very simple. Aliens have invaded and you are the one to defend the solar system. [...]

It’s not very often that you come across a puzzle game that is as intuitive, beautiful and original as The Swapper. Many puzzles games these days seem to use the same ideas over and over again, but this new space puzzler from Curve Studios brings something new to the genre. The Swapper mixes classic 2D side scrolling Metroidvania exploration, with clever puzzle game play including a cloning element. You are a loan astronaut exploring an abandoned space station and the [...]

Contributed By CJ Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. Stranger walks into a town. He’s lost his memory. Seriously RPG’s, stop this. Tropes of amnesia, saying hello to people before robbing every bit of cash crammed & stashed away in their sock drawer and kitchen cabinet, being woken up by your father after a crazy dream. Enough of them. Dear Lord, enough. I’ve heard loads about the YS series for years – nearly all of it positive, mind [...]
