God Of War Review (PS4)

Introduction It has been five years since we last saw Kratos make his blood-stained mark on the Gods of Ancient Greece in God of War: Ascension. Among fans, it was rather lackluster, considering the gravity of the original trilogy. Fast forward three years, we had the unforgettable presentation of a new God of War for the PS4 at E3 2016 and its subsequent release, along with enormous … Continue reading God Of War Review (PS4)

Assassin’s Creed Origins (XB1, PS4, PC)

My, what a difference not being on a yearly schedule makes. Assassin’s Creed: Origins is the return to the franchise that just stepped off the production line. Being in production for four years, this iteration marks the end of Ubisoft’s grand experiment in leveraging global staff towards annual releases. Assassin’s Creed: Origins is a bold step for the franchise in almost all areas. Introducing a whole slew … Continue reading Assassin’s Creed Origins (XB1, PS4, PC)

Super Lucky’s Tale (Xbox One/PC)

Poor Lucky. Not only does it seem as though the sweet little fox has been heavily focus tested in a room full of cheerfully over-protective parents, he’s also been sucked into a magical book called the Book Of Ages – along with a bunch of villainous feline criminals known as the Kittie Litter (yes, really), and it’s up to him to stop them across a variety of … Continue reading Super Lucky’s Tale (Xbox One/PC)

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus (PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch)

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus starts with a brief recap of the The New Order‘s events, and then picks up directly where the new order left off.  We last saw BJ Blazkowicz bleeding out, directly in the path of a bombing run on a Deathsheads compound.  Luckily, BJ is saved in the nick of time by his comrades, and they then continue their plans for revolution. More … Continue reading Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus (PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch)

Middle-earth: Shadow of War (PC/XB1/PS4)

 

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor came out almost three years ago. It was an interesting take on the Lord of the Rings universe created by J.R.R Tolkien. The combat was unique, the story engaging and filled with rich lore and featured a unique Nemesis System. The game tried to do new things in the world of third-person story adventures, even if the system fell short of what was originally promised. Middle-earth: Shadow of War tries to improve every aspect of the original concepts, while at the same time expanding upon it. It’s fantasy at its finest and I believe Tolkien would be proud.

Conan: Exiles (XB1, PC)

Conan exiles by Funcom launched on the Xbox game preview earlier this month for the price of $34.99/£30.49, coming from a troubled launch on PC early access earlier this year. Set in the expansive world of Conan the Barbarian we start by creating our character on a cross that they have been placed on, on the edge of the “exiled” lands as punishment for their crimes. Character … Continue reading Conan: Exiles (XB1, PC)

Sonic Mania (PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC)

Sonic Mania is the game that promised to bring back the passion of gamers for the fastest blue hedgehog that ever existed. Gambling high on the “nostalgia” factor that the golden age of the 16-bit consoles still holds, the game arrived on Tuesday the 15th of August to virtual stores and shelves worldwide for the low price of £16/$20. Will the blue speedster and his … Continue reading Sonic Mania (PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC)
