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 Game Review: Berserk and the Band of the Hawk (PS4, 2017) is a bloody good time marred by repetitive design

Berserk and the Band of the Hawk bases its narrative on the popular and long-running manga series of the same name. It’s only natural that such a franchise would eventually be adopted into the gaming sphere. Further, Berserk‘s gory and action-oriented nature seem like they’d be the perfect ingredients for a Dynasty Warriors style beat ’em up, however there is definitely more style here than there is substance. That’s a shame, because there are sections of this title well worth playing, but the rest is plagued with repetition.

Video Game Review: For Honor hacks and slashes its way to victory

From the beginning, it is immediately apparent that For Honor is a special game. Games of this caliber that not only present intricate and diverse mechanics that allow for fluid moment-to-moment gameplay, but remain addictive and fulfilling at the same time, expecting players to tackle its mechanics with both persistence and patience.  For Honor puts players in the shoes of 3 different factions; The Knights, The Vikings and The Samurai.

Video Games Preview: Space Politics and Alien Sex Make A Grand Return In Mass Effect: Andromeda

Mass Effect: Andromeda is going to be one hell of a game. From the moment I was introduced to the space-bound crew of the Ark Hyperion, hurtling as we were to realms unknown, I knew I was in this for the long haul. I will admit to having little prior experience with the Mass Effect franchise, but the strong opening had me hooked from the start. As a member of the Ark crew, you find yourself cryogenically frozen, and travelling towards a distant planet 600 years away in the hopes of finding habitable land upon which to build your new colony. You, and those you journey with, have a one-way ticket, and there’s no turning back. Of course, once you awaken, everything goes wrong, and it’s here that Scott or Sara Ryder’s true mission starts.

Video Games Review: Halo Wars 2 (Xbox One, 2017)

Real-time strategy has all but disappeared from the gaming lexicon in the last twenty years. From its heyday in the 1990’s with Command & ConquerStarCraft and Total Annihilation, the genre seemingly peaked with Blizzard’s Warcraft 3 in 2002. From there, it entered an evolutionary phase, emerging in the early 2010’s as the all-powerful genre known as the MOBA. Halo Wars 2 feels as though its trapped between several schools of thought, attempting to provide a console-friendly take on the aging RTS genre while also working hard to include recognisable handholds for MOBA enthusiasts.
