Galactic Junk League Preview – Scrapyard Crafting Clash

There is an exuberant freedom in designing your own weapon of doom. Yeah, go ahead and pop three missile launchers on top. That's totally...

Comic Review: Justice League/Power Rangers #1

DC's finest clash with the Teenagers with Attitude in an adventure which crosses another two mega franchises together, yes it's Justice League/Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #1. It's your standard set up for a comic book crossover, two universes collide, you get peanut butter mixed with chocolate as things mesh together.

Rise & Shine Review: Up and At ‘Em

Rise & Shine is a small quiet title from Super Awesome Hyper Dimensional Mega Team (badass name, right?). The game is a unique blend of bullet-hell, platformer and arcade shooter. Think I Wanna Be The Guy but less infuriating and way better looking.

Electric Jukebox Review – What is it Good For?

Over a year after its conception and star studded unveiling, the Electric Jukebox, a brand new UK streaming service and accompanying hardware has launched, but what exactly is the Electric Jukebox and is it enough to rival the likes of Apple Music, Spotify, and even Google Play? I'm not so sure.

Mad Catz RAT 8 Review

I'll be honest, I haven't really given much thought about the mouse that I use on a daily basis. As long as it clicks the right buttons and moves the cursor around, I'm not overly fussed. Well, that's what I thought anyway until I actually tried my hand at a more higher-end mouse, namely the Mad Catz RAT 8. But does all these bells and whistles really make that much of a difference?

The Last Guardian Review – Flawed But Beautiful

The Last Guardian - a name that has been known by many for years now. One that evokes emotions and sometime tears as the long-awaited release of this title has been one that people have longed for. Now in 2016 the legendary title which was feared to never actually release has done just that. With such a long development process and a wait years in the making how does The Last Guardian stand up in the sea of recent release that have made this year one to remember in gaming? Does the legacy of Ico and Shadow of the Colossus continue within The Last Guardian and is Trico a creature to love or fear?

Super Mario Run Review – Is it Really Worth £8?

Nintendo continues to dip their toes into the mobile gaming scene with the much awaited release of Super Mario Run, the first official Mario game to be released on mobile devices and one that hopes to deliver that classic Mario feeling to the masses. With that in hand Super Mario Run has been a success from its download numbers alone. Having now spent a good few hours with Super Mario Run I think it is time to weigh in on the debate and decide if Super Mario Run is a worthy addition to your mobile device even with such a steep asking price...

Assassin’s Creed Movie Review – It Takes a Leap of Faith…

Game to movie adaptations never go well. NEVER. There's one huge and fundamental flaw in the plan. Story based games tend to have about eight hours of content. Movies tend to be about two hours long. I'm no expert but I can see a discrepancy here. Game to movie adaptations can't fit the content, so they come across as rushed and painfully compressed. They try to maintain the same level of depth and integrity and it NEVER works. Assassin's Creed is certainly no exception.

Final Fantasy XV Review – It’s About Time

After ten long years Final Fantasy XV has finally released. Ten years is a long time to wait for anything, let alone a game release. First announced back in 2006 as Final Fantasy Versus XIII, the game has been through a long and rocky development process. Now, ten years later, the rebranded Final Fantasy XV is out. With such a long development fans have witnessed the game change over the years through promotional material and more. With a large amount of content on the cutting room floor and around three different versions of the story having been conceived, Final Fantasy XV has been a project that was sometimes feared to never see the light of day. With so much history belonging to the title that is no longer a fantasy how does it hold up. With more hours than any other game this year I think I’m finally able to answer that question.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Review – A Tale...

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story sees Disney try to expand their cinematic universe of Star Wars, but did they do what Fox couldn't and actually a produce a decent Star Wars prequel?
Dishonored 2

Dishonored 2 Review – And They Say Video Games Aren’t Art…

Seemingly infinite freedom in intricately crafted spaces helps propel this stunning sequel beyond the reaches of it's predecessor - but it's not perfect.

Pokémon Sun/Moon Review – A Whole New Adventure

Welcome to the region of Alola. The newest home for the Pokémon series as once again trainers of all ages take up the challenge to become the very best. Pokémonn Sun and Moon brings a lot to the table both new and old for gamers to lose themselves in. In truth it has been a long time since I last played a Pokémon game. The last one I played was Pokémon White back on the Nintendo DS. Roll forward to today and I’m sat with too many hours put into Pokémon Sun on the Nintendo 3DS and I can’t help but say I love it. With so much being different though just how has Pokémon evolved to be so solid and enjoyable in it’s latest instalment?
Dream Home

A game of two traders trying to out-do each other for a job. Jaipur is central London internship battles taken to Rajasthan.

Dream Home Tabletop Review

With countless games out there about adventuring in a medieval fantasy land or shooting space men with space guns, it's a nice change of pace to play interior designer. Even if you're awful at it.
