The Next Level In Gaming

‘Reviews’

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
