Enter the Gungeon 0

Those who know my specific gaming predilections will be well aware that the roguelike (or roguelite) genre is probably the one genre guaranteed to immediately grab my attention as soon as a new game in that category is released. Just last year three of the games in my game of the year list were roguelikes, and in 2012 I even deemed Spelunky to be my favourite game out of everything released that year. So yes, it’s a genre I seem to quite enjoy. I’ve never been averse to the dual-joy...

Hitman (Review as of second content pack) 0

In an era of video gaming where popular franchises are seeing new games being pumped out on an annual or biennial basis, 2012 seems like a long time ago. It was late in 2012 when we last saw an entry into the Hitman series, with Hitman: Absolution. I still remember the feeling of anticipation leading up to the release of Absolution, after waiting over six years for the series’ newest addition. Sadly though, while it was a fine game, and one of the better ones to come out that year, it was...

Darkest Dungeon 0

This is one I’ve been keeping an eye on for a while now, as it went through its Early Access phase. Officially released as of last week, now is the time to jump on board with Darkest Dungeon - a super stylish and super punishing Rogue-like dungeon crawler with a Lovecraftian theme (yes I know, I too am hoping 2016 is the year that we as a society are finally done with Cthulu, but bear with it at least one more time here).Darkest Dungeon is not your average dungeon crawler. You’ll rec...

Interesting idea, but doesn't cut it. 1

Some people might remember a time only half a decade ago when music/rhythm games were considered niche. It wasn’t until the release of Guitar Hero in late 2005 when the world would suddenly fall head-over-heels in love with this genre. Since then we’ve seen an explosion of rock-inspired music/rhythm games riding the wave of Guitar Hero’s success. Activision’s “Hero” franchise alone has bestowed us a staggering sixteen titles in its extremely short history. Their latest entry into the world of mu...

In serious need of an overhaul. 0

WWE Smackdown vs RAW 2010 marks the tenth entry into Yukes’ annual wrestling franchise. It’s a series that has progressed painfully little in its ten year history, and the latest iteration is no exception. Criticisms of the series in the past stem mainly from the games’ inability to recreate the feeling of the WWE television shows, and instead attempts to create an experience that legitimises what is essentially a fake sport. And this year you’ll find no remedy to that problem.  

One of the key...

Can't live up to the original, but still provides plenty of fun. 0

It was around this time in 2006 when the original Marvel Ultimate Alliance was released, and at the time it was perhaps one of the finest examples of mindless action-RPG fun and shameless fan service going around. It was a riotous romp through some exotic locations, where you fought alongside and against some of the Marvel universe’s most well-known and obscure characters alike. All of this was tied together by a ridiculous story that essentially served as a means to cram as many characters in a...

Competent, but seriously lacking in imagination. 0

Need For Speed: Shift marks the first game in EA’s Need For Speed series reboot, leaving behind the street racing titles that have been the mainstay of the series for the last five iterations. Shift sees the Need For Speed franchise attempt a more simulation style racing game to more directly compete with some of the heavyweights of the genre, namely the Forza Motorsport, Gran Turismo and Project Gotham Racing franchises. However, Need For Speed: Shift falls short of the mark in this regard. Whi...

For fans of the sport only. 0

Fans of more instantly-gratifying fighting games might want to look elsewhere right off the bat, because Fight Night is not this. As a boxing simulation, Fight Night Round 4 is about pacing yourself, picking when to make your offense while maintaining a solid defense. If you go in swinging like a maniac, you’ll only leave yourself open to counter attacks from smarter opponents. The boxer you choose will dictate the kind of strategy you’ll need to employ. A tall fighter with a longer reach will b...
