The action takes place in a variety of fun modes, including Sandbox, Showdown and Versus modes, each of which features a variety of fun activities.

Our First Steps Into A World of Guns With Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet (PS4, 2018)

“Anyone who loves guns can’t be all that bad,” one NPC proclaimed to me in the opening hour of my journey into Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet. The comment understandably took me by surprise, as going into the game, I had very little idea of what to expect. As it turns out, what I should have expected was guns, and a lot of them.

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.
