Review - Bound By Flame


From the developers of games such as Gray Matter, The Testament of Sherlock Holmes, Of Orcs and Men and Mars: War Logs comes a role-playing game called Bound By Flame. A game that the developers claimed to be similar to Mars but by listening to the critics feel they have made a much better product. We are here to put this theory to the test by reviewing Bound By Flame for the Playstation 4


Review - Nether

nether header-598x271

In the last couple of years the survival apocalyptic games have really made a name for themselves, with names like DayZ and Rust at the forefront there have been numerous attempts to gain as much publicity as those two have managed to get but it seems as though there really haven't been a king crowned in the genre yet but another contender is on the horizon and it is called Nether


Review - Child of Light


Child of Light was hyped up before release and even though the screen-shots clearly showed it was a beautiful looking game, and the fact that the developers behind the successful Rayman franchise was behind it I was actually lacklustre regarding the release and wasn't really reading too much into the hype as I have burned myself on doing so in the past, but once I finally got the game and sat down and played it I knew why this game got the hype it did, and here is what I think of Child of Light.


Review - Trials Fusion


Ever since the first Trials game released I have been a fanboy for the series, and ever game released since then have just taken everything that made the previous game and made it so much better so you can imagine my excitement when I got word I would review the PS4 version of the newest Trials game, Welcome to the Future! We review Trials Fusion for the Playstation 4.


Review - The Elder Scrolls Online


It is finally here, the Elder Scrolls Online has launched after years and years of development and I might be the biggest Elder Scrolls fanatic on the TGP team so there was little to no question about who was going to take on this huge task of not only reviewing a Elder Scrolls game, which in itself is a huge task, but a MMO Elder Scrolls game. Is it the best of both worlds or just too much?


Review - Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends CE


Dynasty Warriors, the name itself evokes excitement for a lot of people and judging by the number at the end (and yes this does not indicate the exact amount of DW games released as there are many, many more) it is a well established franchise by now, we get to try out the latest release in the series, Dynasty Warriors 8. Xtreme Legends Complete Edition for the Playstation 4.


Review - Diablo III Reaper of Souls


The first expansion for the critically acclaimed latest addition to the already well-known Diablo series, Diablo 3's Reaper of Souls has been unleashed upon us and you are in charge of once again saving the world and delving deep, deep underground. Get ready for a lot of clicking, a lot of monster killing and an overload of loot, delicious, precious loot.


Review - inFamous Second Son


InFamous is a game that, even though it isn't the most popular franchise out there it has created enough buzz and a big enough following that it has been able to turn itself into a profitable franchise and Second Son is proof of that, just take a look at the game and you will know what we mean as this is probably the most beautiful “next-gen” or “current-gen” game out there by far, it looks absolutely stunning, but is looks enough to sell you on the game? We get to review the PS4 version of inFamous Second Son.


Review - Luftrausers


We as gamers are lucky to live in a world where games like Luftrausers can exist. The only problem is that it needs to live mainly on word-of-mouth as it is a indie game but if you have followed us before you know how we feel about indie games, and Luftrauser is another reason as to why we sometimes love indie games more than any other triple A release and here is why.


Review - SteamWorld Dig


With the incredible success of Minecraft we have seen these last couple of years it seems like mining is the new thing all games try to implement somehow in their game lately, and Steamworld Dig is one of the few out there that we had the pleasure of reviewing that actually changes it up enough to make it a game that can be referred to as being like Minecraft but it is no rip-off and is a delightful game that I personally think most of you will absolutely fall in love with, I know I did and here is why in my Steamworld Dig Review.


Review - Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes


Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is a tricky game to review right now, meaning it all depends on what you expect from the release, if you expect a full Metal Gear Solid game you will be disappointed however if you are looking for a snack to nibble on while you wait for Phantom Pain then this release might be right up your alley.


Review - Dark Souls 2


Dark Souls is a name of a game that evokes emotions, not the David Cage type of emotions but real ones. It is a series of games, with the first release called Demon Souls which came onto the scene and carved its name as a hard game, then Dark Souls released and it reopened the wound and poured salt into it, and now, just as the wound was about to heal here comes Dark Souls 2 with a can of acid just in case the last two games didn’t hurt enough. We get our ass handed to us again by willingly choosing to review Dark Souls 2 on the PS3


Review - Thief


The Thief franchise has seen a spam of 3 previous games, The Dark Project which released first back in 1998, The Metal Age which released in 2000, and Deadly Shadows which saw light back in 2004 and fans of the series had to wait 10 years for a new Thief game which we got to review for the PS4 and it is just named Thief.


Review - South Park The Stick of Truth


South Park came onto the scene like a nuclear bomb, it was an instant hit. From the humble animated shorts from two people Matt Stone and Trey Parker to the blockbuster movies, numerous seasons and a batch of video games, but with the release of Stick of Truth I can honestly say that in my mind South Park has finally made it into the video games industry with this gem of a game.


Review - Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2


Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2 is a mixed bag of impressions, the story and the music and graphics alone are all strong contenders for why this game should be an incredible journey but sadly almost every other factor that makes up this game is lacking in some form.


Review - Magus



Magus was Atlus sticking their feet into game developing for the first time, co-developing the game alongside Black Tower but sadly this is nothing more than a great potential on paper but rather lacklustre in ever other aspect.


Review - Pac-Man Museum

capsule 467x181

Everybody loves Pac-Man, at least there was a time where everybody did but maybe not so much any more. But that is all about to change, because Pac-Man is once again being put into the spotlight with the release of Pac-Man Museum, a collection of Pac-Man games. So the question is, do we really need a collection of Pac-Man games? The short answer is yes, the long answer as to why is in this review of Pac-Man Museum.


Review - Journal


In todays gaming industry you can broaden the spectre of what a game is and should be. With the blossom of indie developers around the world, and people realizing that you do not need a huge company behind you to get your dream game released, some might argue that we are currently drowning in game releases, and we are to be fair, but there is also a lot of good games that get washed away in this flood without getting to reach its specific audience. Journal, in my mind, is one of these games, charming and atmospheric but needs a certain audience to really shine.


Review - Girls Like Robots


Some games unfortunately just pass by gamers simply because they do not get enough publicity or the fact that it is not a triple A budget title and therefore gets lost in the swarm of game releases. One of these diamonds in the dirt is a simple, yet incredible addictive puzzle game named Girls Like Robots.


Preview - Lumini

 maxresdefault 1

We here at TGP always start out our indie game reviews/previews the same way, we shine light on the fact that so many games are released every year flies right under the radar of most gamers simply because of either lack of publishing or the fact that a lot of these diamonds in the dirt are made up by a small team of developers that simply do not have the stage to address a huge audience or the money to their word across. But if we can get at least one more “triple A gamer” to try out one of the indie games we show off from time to time we always feel a lot better.
