Vampyr – Review

Vampyr is a game where you play as Dr. Jonathan Reed who is back from war and a recently turned Vampire. After making a couple of horrible choices after becoming a Vampire, Jonathan decides to use his powers to help people and in general stop London from turning into a disease-ridden hell hole. The story has branching elements and it is really damn good. Visually, it nails it. With great atmosphere and lighting bundled with the weather system it really sets the tone and mood which is dark and gritty and somewhat scary. It does a fantastic job recreating London during WW1 and the Spanish Flu that plagues the city. Besides overall visuals the player and NPC animation in combat is good and at times excellent. It uses particle effects system really well on shadows while dodging and on the fire...

Past Cure – Review

Past Cure is one of those games which looks very interesting with all the trailers and little tidbits of info on the story. However the game turned out to be too ambitious for it’s own good, which has been the fall for many games that have come before it. Past Cure is a third person shooter, stealth based psychological thriller that has been developed and published by Phantom 8 Studio for the PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. And yes, the game is a mish-mash of all those genres in case it sounds like it isn’t, so lets get right to what the game set us up for and how it delivered. Past Cure tells the story of Ian, a former elite soldier who was held against his will and tortured and experimented upon in an attempt to tap into and learn about the hidden powers of the mind. This led...

The Surge – A Walk In The Park DLC Review

The Surge was a great game with a really good premise which was a lot of fun to play. The A Walk In The Park DLC is a new DLC that gives you a great reason to go back into the world of The Surge. While the A Walk In The Park DLC doesn’t add a lot or change a lot of things from the base game, it does provide a really good addition to the main game in the form of an Amusement Park that has come to life in the worst way possible. A Walk In The Park takes places in an Amusement Park that’s not far from where you originally begin the game. Originally made for Creo employees as a place to have fun in, it was aptly named Creo World, which as we all know is one of the staple names for big amusement parks. This once fun and colourful park is now filled with danger around every corner to...

Skyrim VR – Review

Skyrim is a game that like it’s predecessors is known for its fantastic open-world, quests and is remembered as an overall fantastic game. Originally, Skyrim was released for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC with visuals that when compared to Oblivion seemed so realistic. Players put in a lot of hours playing as the Dragonborn to bring an end to all of Skyrim’s voes by fighting Dragons and ending a Civil War that had caused so much bloodshed. Five years after the release of the original game, they announced that Skyrim would be releasing for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and PC with updated visuals and all the DLC and would be known as Skyrim Special Edition. People now got another excuse to play as the Dovahkiin. This move had a lot of mixed reception as people were really expecting a ...

Okami HD – Review

Okami HD is a remaster of Okami, a game that has already become a classic must play game because of it’s uniqueness in terms of art-style and gameplay.

Panda marines that are out to shoot, kill and blowup everything on a planet they are invading to turn into a bamboo plantation. If that doesn’t interest you then I honestly don’t know what will. Feral Fury is a fast paced 2D roguelite top-down twin-stick shooter action game developed and published by Skandivania Games, a company from Norway that has a two person team both of whom worked on this game. The game is your standard rouguelite game that features three modes to choose from, namely Easy, Normal and,Hard. Easy Mode is very easy and is not much of a challenge, if you do play on this difficult prepare to get mocked by the game with butterflies around your character and birthday parties at the end of each chapter.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 – Review

With the astounding success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the emergence of more obscure and lesser known characters, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 is a game that really capitalizes on this. With the tried and tested LEGO video game formula, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 adds a plethora of new characters, locations and fantastic interaction between characters to continue the story of it’s own LEGO universe where humour and absurdity go hand in hand. A sequel to the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes game that released in 2013, this new game really builds on that while providing an extremely fun experience that doesn’t strive too far from the LEGO games formula while adding its own touch to it. The game takes place after the events of the previous game where the entire cast of heroes from...

Planetbase – Review

Planetbase as the name suggests is a game about bases on a planet. You lead a team of colonists and robots who are on a mission to colonize a remote planet. It is a strategy game with a survival aspect added to it. The game features four planets, each with increasing difficulty. The second, third and fourth planets can only be unlocked after reaching a certain number of “milestones” which are essentially achievements or goals that you must achieve on a planet. Planetbase has a learning curve that will take you a few attempts to get used to because of how quick and easy it is to die, especially on the later planets but once you do get past the initial stages of setting up a base to produce power, water and oxygen it gets easier. However once you start expanding your base further...

Wulverblade – Review

Brutal, bloody and barbaric, Wulverblade is a 2D side-scrolling beat ’em up set in 120 AD during a time when the Roman Empire was trying to conquer Britain from the South. With a very colourful yet dark artstyle, it blends the cartoon-y artstyle with a very authentic representation of the war-torn lands during that time period. Character sprites are made in 1080p to have clarity and sharpness and is good but at times can feel a bit too cartoon-y for a game that is so gritty. The whole art style is beautiful and portrays the time period and setting really well, however some might feel it looks like a well done flash game but dont let that fool you since it is quite brutal with execution moves and lot of blood and dismemberment that doesn’t look gruesome with the artstyle but it ...
