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 [...]

  Frequent commuters on the M4 motorway would have had quite a surprise on Monday evening as they were driving by the SEGA Building in Chiswick. Not only was Sonic The Hedgehog taking pride of place on the side of the building but Pac -Man also decided to make an appearance as well. An 80 foot tall projection of everyone’s favorite yellow ghost muncher was plastered on the side of the SEGA offices for a grand total of 5 minuets, [...]

I have a bit of a funny relationship with the Strider games – it’s an old series, and hasn’t had a new entry since Strider 2 in 2000.  While I’ve never beaten either of the games, Strider Hiryu has still been a fairly prominent figure in my gaming history – I have a good friend who loves the games, and I’ve seen them both beaten multiple times. And then we have the Marvel vs Capcom series, where Hiryu has been one of my favourite fighters for [...]

I will never be the same again…. Never has a game made me cower on the spot and not want to move. Never has a game flooded my body with so much fear, anxiety and dread before to the point I start becoming VERY aware of my surroundings. You are literally cast into the darkness of the unknown when you play Outlast. Unbeknownst to him, Miles Upshur is about to uncover the story of a lifetime. He’s an investigative journalist [...]

It has been a long time since there was a new Dragonball z game released. So when I heard about Battle of Z I jumped for joy, I am a huge Dragon Ball fan with an extensive collection of games, DVDs and merchandise. So I know a lot about the Dragon Ball universe. In previous Dragon Ball Z games the layout was simple, each game featured a few different modes which included a vs mode and the games main story [...]

Contributed by CJ PREPARE TO DIE 1.45am wake-up for a 3.35am bus. Plenty of time. Except, my PC had gone bonkers and – not for the first time, but for the first time in the longest time – was showing the wrong time. At 3.30am the news spiked beyond radio music and I was mortified. Computer clock said 3.11. Bus leaves at 3.35. I ran at what seemed like The Flash speeds, although somewhat more human, pathetic and carrying a [...]

Imagine this scenario: you find yourself inexplicably locked inside an empty school building, along with fourteen strangers. There’s no way to escape, and all of the windows are boarded up. Your captor then announces that you must now live here for the rest of your life… the only way you can be granted permission to leave is if you meet one special condition: Murder one of your fellow prisoners, and don’t get caught doing it. What would you do, if [...]

The era of the Playstation 4 is here. Big AAA titles are needed to exemplify the PS4’s awesome hardware. But it also needs good support in the form of Playstation Network titles. Housemarque had a crack at this with Super Stardust HD for the PS3, and it worked. Resogun is their step-up to next-generation gaming, and it most certainly works. The game borrows various aspects from its older brother; it focuses on a space ship flying around the screen trying [...]
