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.

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?

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.

Games Review: Lost Sphear (PS4, 2018) finds its place amongst mundanity

Lost Sphear has finally been released on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC. A successor of sorts to developer Tokyo RPG Factory’s fantastic I Am Setsuna, while it’s not all bad, its hard not to feel like Lost Sphear has lost the things that made Setsuna special.

Games Review: Final Fantasy Dissidia NT (PS4, 2018): Fight for your Right

The premise of Final Fantasy‘s Dissidia spin-offs is one we’ve all seen before – the heroes and villains of World A get transported to World B for some wild, yet justifiable reason, and are then thrust into a battle for their lives and the fate of the world. It’s no different here, with Dissidia NT beginning with characters from every major Final Fantasy title finding themselves stranded in the aptly named ‘World B,’ upon which war is being waged.

Games Review: Monster Hunter World (PS4, 2018): Shining, Shimmering, Splendid

I’m ashamed to say that I’m a latecomer to the Monster Hunter franchise, with my first taste of monster hunting goodness coming late last year in the delightful Monster Hunter Stories. Given that I enjoyed the title so much, I was looking forward to World, but didn’t realise how much it would blow me away. It’s rare that a title immediately grabs you and immerses you so fully in its world, but from the opening scenes, I was hooked.

Games Review: Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth: Hacker’s Memories (PS4, 2018): System Upgrade Incomplete

Good news for fans of Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth — if you liked the original, then you’ll love Hacker’s Memories. Bad news of fans of Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth — you’ve seen this all before.

Games Review: AO Tennis (PS4, 2018): Serving up anything but an ace

Let’s get one thing straight: I love tennis. The Australian Open is no exception, grabbing me from the first round all the way to the final match. So it’s safe to say I was excited for AO Tennis, hoping it would bring tennis games back into the mainstream, a nod to the good old days of Virtua Tennis and Top Spin. What we got however, is disappointing to say the least. Continue reading Games Review: AO Tennis (PS4, 2018): Serving up anything but an ace
