SunOD6

By Hedge Available on: Xbox One Exclusive Insomniac Games are known mostly these days for Resistance, but before that they helmed the fantastic cute-and-crazy shooter series Ratchet and Clank and the Spyro games back when they were about a cute dragon named Spyro spitting fire and not buying toys to use in game like some … Continue reading

Cheap Game Tuesday: ‘Gods Will Be Watching’

Gods Will Be Watching

Here’s something I’m getting tired off…indie games using retro graphics. We’ve had enough. On the other hand, when it’s supported by an original concept, a unique gameplay mechanic and interesting characters the game could be made out of matchsticks and still interest me. That brings us to Gods Will Be Watching, which is already a great … Continue reading

Where Should ‘Assassin’s Creed’ Go Next?

Assassins Creed

So a pair of new Assassin’s Creed games have hit the shelves and after the top notch effort of Black Flag we can only expect great things. Ok, ok, never mind. Let’s look to the future. If Ubisoft get their heads out of their arses and get back to making the game FUN rather than trying to squeeze … Continue reading

Cheap Game Tuesday: ‘The Legend of Korra’

Korra 1

I wish I had more good things to say about this game. I really do. An interactive version of this world is long over due and to see it short changed like this…it’s disappointing. It’s not all bad, and if you’re a fan of the franchise you might be willing to overlook some of the … Continue reading

Cheap Game Tuesday: ‘Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag’

assassins_creed_blackflag_gun_ship

The Assassin’s Creeds franchise has become one of the most recognisable properties in pop culture. The distinctive white hooded, free running, wrist-bladed assassin became a selling point for the PS3 and X-Box 360 when they first arrived on the market, looking so lovely on our new HD home entertainment systems that it became a best seller … Continue reading

Cheap Games Tuesday: ‘Five Nights at Freddy’s’

Five Nights At Freddys

A year or so again the indie game Slender turned up, basing itself off the popular urban myth of the ‘Slenderman’. It was simple in presentation and gameplay but worked within its limitations to great effect. It became something of a cult smash and spawned a higher budget (and less well received) follow up, and was … Continue reading

Cheap Game Tuesday: ‘Far Cry 3′

Far Cry 3

With the sequel rolling onto shelves in the coming months, nows a good a time as ever to go back and revisit (or check out) this must-play title from the previous console generation. It can be nabbed cheaply from Steam or the PSN, and there’s more than a couple of copies floating around the pre-owned … Continue reading

Cheap Game Tuesday: ‘Invisible, Inc.’

invisible-inc

So…Invisible, Inc.. A turn based stealth game. Think Metal Gear Solid with the game mechanics of XCOM Enemy Unknown and the plot line of Monaco. And it’s Cyberpunk. And film noir. Cybernoirpunk espionage thing. Yeah, that sounds about right. It’s available on Steam as a pre-release title, but you’ve got plenty of material to play with. You are … Continue reading

Cheap Game Tuesday: ‘The Bridge’

the-bridge-banner

Like the indie smash hits FEZ and Braid, and recent iPad bestseller Monument Value, this little title works with the concepts of perception and manipulation of the physical level to avoid obstacles and guide the character to the doorway that will take them to the next level. Based heavily on the works of M.C. Escher – to the point … Continue reading

Everything Wrong With X-Box One

xbone1

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
