Video Game Review: The Walking Dead: A New Frontier – Ties That Bind: Part II (PS4, 2017) puts character ahead of action and wins big

Following last episodes tragic conclusion, Ties That Bind: Part II opened fairly solemnly in comparison. But that was about the quietest the second instalment got as it rounded out its two hour play time with twists and healthy does of action. Continue reading Video Game Review: The Walking Dead: A New Frontier – Ties That Bind: Part II (PS4, 2017) puts character ahead of action and wins big

Gorgeous Locales and Combat Options Revealed For Uncharted: The Lost Legacy

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy has been a bit of an enigma since it was first announced. Unveiled late last year, the game looked to be an exciting and refreshing change for the franchise as the initial teaser revealed a deep, gorgeous adventure featuring Chloe Frazer and Nadine Ross. Continue reading Gorgeous Locales and Combat Options Revealed For Uncharted: The Lost Legacy

Video Games Review: Styx: Shards of Darkness (PS4, 2017) is quiet in its brilliance

Despite being a spin-off of popular RPG Of Orcs and Men, the Styx franchise has largely flown under the radar in the stealth genre. The first game, Master of Shadows, was a digital-only release, but with its newest entry, it’s finally time for the series to get the attention it deserves. Simply put, Styx: Shards of Darkness is a game that oozes personality. From the brilliantly designed and uniquely varied levels, to Styx himself, the game brims with a confidence that makes the experience all the more enjoyable. Travelling through the dark slums of Thoben, to the brilliant elf city of Körangar, Shards of Darkness weaves a compelling tale filled with political tensions, magic sceptres and one particularly crude talking goblin.

Telltale’s Guardians of the Galaxy will be unrelated to the films, PAX East trailer likely

Telltale Games have released a number of screens from their forthcoming Guardians of the Galaxy adventure title, their first in conjunction with Marvel Comics, but acknowledge that their story is entirely separate from the popular Marvel Studios films. Continue reading Telltale’s Guardians of the Galaxy will be unrelated to the films, PAX East trailer likely

Video Games Review: Death Squared (PS4, 2017) makes death a learning experience

Over the course of the first 50 levels of Death Squared, I accidentally sent my loyal robot companions to their deaths over 260 times. But each time, I learned something new, and was able to press on to new and greater heights in the game. The further I delved into the game, the more I was absorbed by its confidence and personality. In Death Squared, not only is death a learning experience, it’s also fun, and filled with explosions. Continue reading Video Games Review: Death Squared (PS4, 2017) makes death a learning experience

Video Game Review: The Walking Dead: A New Frontier – Ties That Bind: Part I (PS4, 2017)

Lets face it. While Telltale’s three-part Michonne series was an enjoyable enough romp, it could be argued that it’s existence served as a means to placate gamers until the main event rolled along. Because for all of Telltale’s impressive takes on pop culture’s most iconic franchises (Game of Thrones, Minecraft, Batman) their Walking Dead games are unequivocally their premier product.

Video Games Review: Horizon: Zero Dawn distills the best parts of its many influences to create something truly amazing

During my first six hours with Horizon: Zero Dawn a phrase appeared in my head and got lodged there, as phrases like to do when you write for a living. The phrase in question was “This is once-in-a-hardware-generation stuff.” It stuck with me as my playthrough progressed, and it wasn’t until I’d been away from the game for a few hours that I started to wonder if that was true at all. Horizon: Zero Dawn is a  beautiful pastiche of some of this hardware generation’s best titles. It casually lifts its favourite things from other, equally great games — be it mechanics, design or even art style — and throws them into a blender. Far from being lazy or trite, it works hard to either equal or improve upon everything it borrows — and the result is a new high water mark in the open world action-adventure genre.

Video Games Review: Gravity Rush 2 (PS4, 2017) can’t quite grasp the concept of cohesion in gameplay or storytelling

I never played 2012’s Gravity Rush. At the time it was almost a PS Vita must have. Not only because it was one of the few stand out games on the handheld but because its main feature required you to move the console around, basically showing off the fancy features of the then, fairly new Vita. It has since been remastered for the Playstation 4 and after playing Project Siren’s ambitious sequel, my agitation may prevent me from ever doing so.
