Games Review: Fe (Xbox One, 2018): Beautiful, but oblique

You ever sit down with a game, settle in with it, familiarise yourself with the controls and prepare for the inevitable hook that will lead you on your quest? My experience with Fe was fine right up until the part where the hook was supposed to arrive. It never did. Forty minutes after booting the game up and settling in, I still didn’t really know what the game actually wanted from me but I had managed to make a bunch of animal friends. Continue reading Games Review: Fe (Xbox One, 2018): Beautiful, but oblique

Games Review: Accounting Plus (PSVR, 2018): Rick and Morty meets The Stanley Parable

Trying to market Account + VR would be like trying to drag a pizza delivery man away from dancing on the side of the road and showing him the power of social media advertising. It’s pointless, the only thing that can help advertise this wonderful, engaging, hilarious adult experience is to just yell at people to play it. OR, you can tell everyone you know that it is created by the very team that has brought us Rick and Morty (Justin Roiland) and the Stanley Parable (William Pugh), that sold me instantly! Who doesn’t want to put a pair of Virtual Reality goggles on and get lost in a cartoonish nightmare with those two yelling expletives at you for a few hours? Continue reading Games Review: Accounting Plus (PSVR, 2018): Rick and Morty meets The Stanley Parable

Games Review: The Inpatient (PSVR, 2018): Give me the bad news, doc

The Inpatient for PlayStation VR is a psychological horror game designed by Supermassive Games, who were the minds behind the awesome PS4 exclusive Until Dawn and is set 60 years before that aforementioned title. Those merits alone will sell the game to VR enthusiasts and horror buffs such as myself. After the VR games Resident Evil 7 and Supermassive’s own Rush of Blood, the bar was left high for Supermassive Games second VR title The Inpatient. Continue reading Games Review: The Inpatient (PSVR, 2018): Give me the bad news, doc

Games Review: Bayonetta (Nintendo Switch, 2018): Still got it, baby

It’s hard to imagine that Bayonetta was released nearly 10 years-ago now and the apparently superior sequel Bayonetta 2 was 4 years ago! With the newly released Switch port arriving this month, for the most part, it honestly feels like it was made for it today, it just ages well and for a guy that never played the original or any of its other ports (Xbox 360, PS3 etc..) it holds up pretty well in 2018 and even more so when I can take it with me to work, I mean for a drive!? Continue reading Games Review: Bayonetta (Nintendo Switch, 2018): Still got it, baby

Come On and Slam with Brand New WWE SuperCard Event Packs

WWE SuperCard took me largely by surprise. It’s easy to be cynical about mobile titles, particularly with their consistent reliance on microtransactions and invasive advertising, but WWE SuperCard largely avoids those common pitfalls with robust gameplay and a multitude of fun modes to keep you occupied. Continue reading Come On and Slam with Brand New WWE SuperCard Event Packs

Games Review: Bayonetta 2 (Switch, 2018): Cranking the absurdity dial way up

Boy, Bayonetta 2 is … a lot, isn’t it? There’s so much going on with this game that I barely know where to start talking about it. Maybe let’s start with the fact that its been re-released on the Nintendo Switch and go from there. Continue reading Games Review: Bayonetta 2 (Switch, 2018): Cranking the absurdity dial way up
