FIFA 20 – Review

Another year goes by and with it another FIFA title rolls its way into our lives. FIFA 20 tries to shake things up this time though with a brand new game mode that is essentially a whole game on its own in Volta Mode. But with FIFA, it’s always a lot of good stuff mixed in with some frustrating and bad stuff. FIFA 20’s gameplay is in my opinion much better than its previous iteration. Instead of being extremely slow or extremely fast paced, games to me felt rather balanced which gave you enough time on the ball to build up plays but also had blistering moments of counter-attacking and lobbed through balls that would slice open the defense of opposite side. Defending has been improved thanks to the Active-Touch tackling system which has made timed challenges much more worth it. However, att...

Essay: On the Importance of Arc System Works!

“Arc System Works is a powerhouse, a hotbed for frantic, action packed, highly stylized and over the top excited gameplay!” How did a game developer whom I hardly knew ended up among my top three companies in the business? Sitting right next to gaming giant Nintendo and Ubisoft, Arc System Works (ASW) has become a dominant force in the video gaming landscape, and one that holds the candle, being the very best at what they do. Starting way back in the dark ages of 1988, ASW, or Arc Co. Ltd. as it was registered at the time, consisted of a hand full of developers hailing from the stables of SEGA. But it wouldn’t be until 7 years later that they managed to publish their first title, Exector, for the Sony Playstation. The following years would see several games being brought to market, includi...

Spyro Reignited Trilogy – Review

Spyro Reignited Trilogy is a ground up remake of the original Spyro games, and they are incredibly well made games, with a lot of work done to bring it up to modern standards. Spyro Reignited Trilogy contains the original three games, Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage! and Spyro: Year of the Dragon. They are immensely fun 3D action platformers, and they look fantastic, feel great to play, and bring back the good old memories of playing the games for the first time back in the day. The port work is impeccable – I had no performance with maxed out settings at 1080p. Plus, the games handles well on both a controller or a keyboard and mouse. There’s also a lot to explore, and secrets to discover. The movement and combat feels great, though the combat is hardly the focus...

Durgod Taurus K310 Gaming Keyboard – Review

After having spent almost a month with the Durgod Taurus K310 I can confidently say that it is one of the most comfortable and high quality keyboards I have ever used. The Durgod Taurus K310 mechanical keyboard is a premium mechanical keyboard, but it goes for a more minimalist look with plain white and grey keys. Unlike it’s counterpart, the K310, it is not silent, and has a full numpad. In fact, it can get pretty loud, but it’s what some gamers go for. The Durgod Taurus K310 is a sleek and compact keyboard, but it does not feel cramped. In fact the ergonomics and quality of the keyboard are what I appreciate the most. It’s a heavy and solid keyboard and weighs just over a kilogram. that weight is actually pretty heavy for the keyboard, and highlights the premium quality of th...

Mutant Year Zero: Road To Eden – Review

Mutant Year Zero: Road To Eden is a turn-based tactic, action adventure roleplaying game. Set in an aesthetically sound post apocalyptic world; ‘Mutant Year Zero: Road To Eden stand’ out in it’s genre due to the unique gameplay it offers. The game has turn based combat allowing for smart combat as one scours a dangerous ruined world with mutated buddies for company. The combat is difficult with smart enemies and usually heightened by the lack of supplies or being outnumbered. This pushes the player to look for smarter combat or sneak around dangers. The combat is satisfying due to its difficulty and carries the theme of post apocalyptic helplessness, adding to the mood of the story through the tension of  risky combat. Whilst combat is turn-based, exploration and basic sneaking...

HyperCharge Unboxed – Review

HyperCharge Unboxed is a co-operative First Person Shooter where you play as toys that have come to life. Your goal in the game is to defend Hyper Cores from an onslaught by toys; solo or with three other friends. While the gameplay looks like a standard First Person Shooter, the ideas of player being as small as a toy and fighting toys makes the game a visual treat, the setting of battle being tops of tables or floor of the bedroom adds to this aesthetic feeling. The pre-setting of the battlefield by you and your friends with traps and blockades create room for strategy building and smart gameplay. Many of the traps need to bought using coins that are placed around the room. You are faced with various enemy toys ranging from the classic toy soldier to beyblades to small basketballs lookin...

Daymare: 1998 – Review

Daymare: 1998, is a third person horror survival game, set in the 90’s a fact visually expressed aesthetically throughout the environment. In Daymare: 1998, an incident or something has turned the your town into a dead zone, and all its citizens into mutated creatures. As you weave your way through this horrifying nightmare your town and it’s people have become to find the truth, your ability at stealth and all out combat is tested.  While the game sets itself in the 90’s it does so without really bringing in new experiences for the player to take from the game. It’s repetitive because of  other games that have come before it. The story is okay but mostly remains unimaginative. You control three protagonists in turns often scouring the parts of the city or installations looking for informa...

Decay Of Logos – Review

Decay Of Logos is a third person action RPG. The vast and beautiful word is exciting and sparks a wish for exploring it. But the game is riddled with problems. With the game crashing on multiple counts, to it slowing loading in front of you, to parts of the map not loading at all. This really is a killjoy to the experience of exploration that this world can actually offer through it’s visually aesthetic landscapes. The combat has failed to create a challenging and satisfying battles by making it repetitive; rendering it unengaging and mindless. While the story is still pretty decent enjoying it is difficult because of the repetitive bugs that keep showing up throughout the games. But with fixes this game still could have the potential to offer a lot to the player. Platform- PlayStation 4, ...

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare BETA Impressions

With the latest iteration of Call of Duty in 2019’s Modern Warfare, there’s an imminent promise of actually returning to the roots of what made the series actually resonate with gamers across the world back in 2007. It’s all grounded in a somewhat realistic modern day setting, and the movement, weapons and the locations reflect the same. After having played over 15 hours of the multiplayer, both across the Closed and the Open BETA, I can confidently say that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is indeed the Call of Duty that fans have been waiting for. Firstly, the gun-play feels so good. Just running around and shooting in the multiplayer feels just right. It immediately reminded me of the times I spent playing Call Of Duty 4’s multiplayer, only this felt like it had made...
