Don’t get me wrong, I love X-Box. I’ve been a strong X-BOX supporter for years now, and bought the X-BOX One the day it came out. I’ve played a large selection of the games: Dead Rising 3, Assassins Creed, Call Of Duty Ghosts, Battlefield 4, LEGO Marvel Superheros, NBA 2K14, Titanfall, Watch Dogs, FIFA, Need … Continue reading

brothers-a-tale-of-two-sons

When this little indie gem first emerged on the market all the reviews suggested checking it out yourself rather than reading about it. Naturally I avoided all reviews of the material and downloaded a copy. Then I didn’t play it for a long time because I’m more likely to play a game I know something … Continue reading

By Hedge My last post focussed on the big two – Microsoft and Sony. Their press conferences gave us more than a few trailers, but over the last few days we’ve seen even more reveals, trailers and gameplay demos from the studios themselves.

Was ‘WATCH_DOGS’ Bad?

watch_dogs_aiden_pearce

A couple of weeks ago a game came out called watch_dogs. You likely heard of it. That’s because it’s very possibly the most hyped up game of the past five years. As with anything hyped up this much it didn’t quite live up to audience expectations. In actual fact, some people outright dislike it, with it … Continue reading

Red Dead Redemption

I’m beginning to feel like the last kid on the block to move up to the new generation of consoles.

Destiny-Beta

By Hedge The first part of the Destiny Beta was a superb, exquisitely fun affair that I could not stop playing. I hooked around twenty hours over the four days prior to the shutdown and was still so hooked I had minor withdrawals on that first day the game was unavailable. Thankfully I had work … Continue reading

Telltale_Games_logo_svg

Telltale are the gold star recipients in the modern point and click adventure genre. A genre that produced blockbuster titles in the 90s and now only fills a small niche, Telltale kept the Monkey Island and Sam and Max flame alive. Their games based on Jurassic Park and Back to the Future were plenty of fun, but it was The Walking Dead that … Continue reading
