Video Games Review: Wipeout Omega Collection (PS4, 2017) punches the nostalgia button but still can’t keep pace

The year was 1995, I was sifting through my Australian PlayStation Magazine demo discs after playing a couple of hours of Spyro the Dragon on my PlayStation, I decided I would finally give the ‘PlayStation Demo Disc’ a good go! The disc came with the console at the time it launched, I just hadn’t had any real reason to pop it in the drive until now, the infamous PlayStation start up sound vibrated my TV and I was given the option of WipeOut, Destruction Derby and Total NBA (alongside that awesome T-Rex Dinosaur and Manta Ray 3D simulation video), of course I chose WipeOut!...

Video Game Review: The Surge (PS4, 2017) will be familiar to Souls fans but has a few tricks of its own

The Surge is a game that we’ve seen before.

Video Games Review: Prey: (PS4, 2017) In Space, Nobody Can Hear You

There’s nothing quite like the fear and paranoia that Prey induces the moment you step into a room of the vast Talos I station. The tension I felt while playing Prey was palpable, thanks in no small part to the edge-of-your-seat atmosphere the game builds. Through the combination of a haunting score, brilliant level design and stellar voice-work, Prey hooks you in and keeps you riveted for the duration of the game. The design of the mimics is frankly spectacular, and while alien enemies in games have largely been overdone, Prey goes out of its way to make the Typhon a formidable and unique force.
