Bethesda and Reviews: It’s All About The Money

“You need an early review? Screw you”, screams Bethesda’s latest announcement, a few days prior to the release of Skyrim SE. According to the studio, they have proven that  the review timings are not connected to the quality of the game in any manner, and hence they will continue the policy of sending the review copies of their games one day before the official release. “Earlier this year we released DOOM,” the official post reads.“We sent review copies to arrive the day before launch, which led to speculation about the quality of the game. Since then Doom has emerged as a critical and commercial hit, and is now one of the highest-rated shooters of the past few years.” Considering it’s the publisher’s job to sell as many copies of the game as possible, this ca...

Quick Review: The Light Inside Us

The Light Inside Us is an abstract, tactical shooter set in an isometric world where light is sentinent. You shoot rays of destructive light with parts of your body and gain them back as you kill the enemies. Each shot counts and wasteful shots are not easily forgiven.

PlayStation NEO Is Bad News? | Angry Pixels Podcast #7

So who the fuck thought that bringing in a new console smack bang in the middle of a console cycle is a great idea? Is Sony needlessly ruffling feathers with the PlayStation NEO, or can it have some merits? The Pixels sit down with Abheyraj, a developer and gamer, and get to the roots of this whole console mess. And for more news and reviews, keep checking back at Gaming Central. Favorite

LEGO Jurassic World Review

The first few minutes of LEGO Jurassic World has you and the characters wide mouthed and gaping at the marvels of science. The screaming and running starts pretty soon though. This is one of the best LEGO games to come out in years and it’s a ton of fun! As the least combative Lego game to date, the four films recreated in block form — Jurassic Park, The Lost World, Jurassic Park 3 and Jurassic World — here swap regularly between the ooh of playing as plastic dinosaurs, and pegging it away from gigantic lizards as fast as blocky little legs can carry you. Which is just as well, because when the fighting does start, it’s far from a highlight. It makes sense: the movies are mostly about humans trying to avoid dinosaurs.  Admittedly, no one comes to this series for the comba...

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Review

After countless hours of Witchering, our journey (or Geralt’s journey) finally comes to an end, and what a journey it was!! Expanding over 200 hours, across a huge landscape, riddled with monsters both human and beast-like, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is an immensely satisfying game. Imagine a richly detailed, alive and inhabited open world like GTA 5. Combat and monster design akin to Dragon’s Dogma. Difficulty levels to satisfy any Dark Souls veteran. Deep RPG elements similar to Dragon Age and Diablo. Story surpassing that of Game of Thrones, in terms of complexity, depth and quality! Now, bring all of that together, and you have the finest RPG ever made-The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. CD Projekt Red have completely outdone themselves, and refined this game to near perfection. The wo...

Battlefield Hardline Review

Battlefield is a game that has been around for a decent amount of time now and has been giving the Call of Duty franchise a run for its money. With Call of Duty coming out with Advanced Warfare, did Hardline do enough to win the hearts of FPS enthusiasts? Let’s find out. Hardline stars a young and honest detective, Nick Mendoza, a Cuban immigrant who grew up in a lower income area in Miami. New developer Visceral abandoned the old generic military vide and went with a cops vs robbers sort of theme, that honestly does give a different feel to it and helps segregate it from the Call of Duty titles. Has Hardline made the right choice with this new approach or should it have stuck with the established franchise? New Approach Going with the cops vs robbers approach could have proved both a risk...

Sniper Elite III review

Introduction It’s ironic that so soon after the release of Enemy Front, another title with a very different outlook on war has stealthily marched onto the scene. In Sniper Elite III, rather than making you think about the needless loss of life with the gory, slow-motion glory of every rifle shot, shattered skull, splintered bone, and ruptured internal organ, as you cut your way through a legion of soldiers Gameplay Set during the North African campaign of the Second World War, the games Kicks off during the Siege of Tobruk, as the elite sharpshooter you fend off a German attack and are recruited by British Intelligence, who ask him to investigate reports of a German General working on a mystery weapon that [well do I need to tell this] “could spell defeat for the Allies”. Killcam Mania 😉 T...

Thief lands on your console full of potential, but loses the plot midway

We were really excited with the build-up to this game and we’re a bit let down with the fact that Thief is a game that fails to step into the shoes of its predecessor in some ways. It is a game that lands on your console full of potential, but loses its steam midway. There are good things about this game, and they bear mentioning. This is the long-awaited follow-up to the classic Thief series, which is given a lot of credit for inventing the modern stealth game. So all you guys who have love stealth games, you should be excited 🙂 A visual update has been made which makes the game look wonderful when it’s running, though we have not checked out the first version of the game since it was release quite a long time back. The movement of the main character Garret, looks and feels great, and he ...

GTA V Review

Yes the most awaited game review is here. Well we’ve not been able to share it justifies that we’ve loved the game so much 😉 GTA V kickstarts in heist mode, with you and your crew already earning wanted stars speaks pretty loudly about Rockstar’s intentions here. There’s no consequence to the game proper though, because this fauxtorial takes place years earlier than when you’ll settle into the greater world of Los Santos and Blaine County. Rockstar’s one of the biggest additions to V, is character-swapping — a feature that can generally be used at any given time in the game, but is most fun and dynamic while each character is part of an event in V’s rich and expansive narrative. One such event transpires during your prologue, but like the rest of this review I’ll keep it spoiler-free...
