Review - Day of the Tentacle Remastered

DOTT Key art

I played this original game when it first released, back then I was 12 years old, I am now … older than that but it still evokes the same amazing experience as it did back then. And that is a true testament to how incredible good this game was, and is. I go back to my childhood and re-play the revamped and remastered version of a old time classic, Day of the Tentacle on the Playstation 4


Review - Salt and Sanctuary


Dark Souls III is right around the corner and I just played something that might interest you and kill some of this horrible downtime you are experiencing right now as you wait for the game to release. The game I am talking about is a 2D... wait, where are you going? Hear me out! This game is a 2D Dark Souls and it is called Salt and Sanctuary and it is just as hard as any Dark Souls game, and the scary thing is that it is just as entertaining. This is the review for the Playstation 4 version of Salt and Sanctuary


Review - Kholat


There has been numerous games released under the indie survival horror game genre these last couple of years, most of these has created a mediocre to low critical praise while others such as Outlast, Slender and Amnesia: The Dark Descent has managed to create a rather positive buzz, so when I discovered Kholat I knew I had to read up on the Dyatlo Pass incident in which this game is based upon and I was pleasantly surprised the further I dug into both the game and the story. This is a game you really should pay attention to. This is our review of the Playstation 4 version of Kholat


Review - Deadpool (PS4)


Better late than never. When Deadpool first arrived on the previous consoles we wrote “There is nothing unique here, but it is still one of the most fun and entertaining experiences I have had in a long time. It is good to play a game that is just that, a game, a fun and entertaining experience that disconnects you from the real-world for a few hours and takes you on an insane journey through the mind of Deadpool.” and this still stands when we once again revisit Deadpool, only this time on the current gen consoles


Review - Dying Light: The Following


How bold is it to remove one of the main draws of a product and replace it with something completely new? Dying Light The Following does just that, the parkour aspect of the game that was hailed when it first released as a game changer has now been pushed aside and instead you get a vehicle, a dune buggy to be precise. Techland goes out of their way to introduce this new mechanics in the expansion to Dying Light named The Following. And you know what.. it works!


Review - Arslan: The Warriors of Legend


Omega Force is back at it again with another release, Arslan: The Warriors of Legend. Omega Force most noticeably known for their work on the Dynasty Warriors series, but also games like One Piece: Pirate Warriors, Hyrule Warriors, Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree's Woe and the Blight Below among others. So you already know what you get once you go looking for a Omega Force developed game, and if you don't allow me to educate you the easiest way I know, they all feel like playing a Dynasty Warriors game with other characters, story and some tweaks to gameplay mechanics. But other than that, they are pretty similar to previous releases


Review - This War of Mine: The Little Ones


Are you ready for some darkness? Are you ready to have the lives of different survivors in your hands, keeping them fed, medicated, and away from depression during a raging war? This is a survival war game with the inspiration taken from the 92-96 Siege of Sarajevo during the Bosnian War, and it is heavy. Are you ready for this?


Review - Sebastien Loeb Rally Evo


There are way too many racing games which gives the control complete control from the beginning, there are no real skill involved you just push the gas and drift through the different turns until you finally hit the finish line, these are mostly arcade racing games and there is fun to be had there too, but Sebastien Loebs Rally Evo is nothing of the sort, this is nitty, gritty, in-your-face racing. You are going to have to learn the hard way how to control these oiled beasts, but when you do there is nothing like the feeling of being in control of everything this game has to offer. This is every petrol-heads wet dream


Review - Gravity Rush Remastered


If I had a Playstation Vita I think Gravity Rush would be one of my favourite games on that system, sadly though I had one for a incredible short period of time until I realized it was just collecting dust and got rid of it before I encountered Gravity Rush. Luckily for me and many other who shared the same fate as I did I now own a Playstation 4 and a re-release of the game has finally arrived on this platform, Gravity Rush Remastered is here to knock you off your feet if you haven't already been floored by this release already, pun intended


Review - Just Cause 3


Just Cause 3 has finally been unleashed upon us, and judging by the trailers and previews leading up to the games released it seemed like third time the charm, but sadly, Just Cause 3 is riddled with the same problems the previous games encountered, glitches, game breaking bugs and repetitive gameplay, however it is still a whole lot of fun blowing up stuff though


Review - Fallout 4


It is that time of the year again, it is Fallout season. As a long time Fallout fan you can imagine my excitement when our PS4 review code for Fallout 4 finally came. Fallout 4 seems familiar the second you start playing it if you have previously played a Fallout game (Fallout 3 most noticeable), but the tweaks and improvements in Fallout 4 are much more noticeable as soon as you put a few hours into it. Kick back and relax because judging by the share size of this game this is going to be a long review for the PS4 version of Fallout 4


Review - Call of Duty Black Ops III


Third times the charm is a saying that rarely holds any meaning, the same can be said for Call of Duty Black Ops 3 seeing as the previous two on the series has seen incredible success and it was a no-brainer that we would get a third in the series. The question is however, can Treyarch have lightning strike thrice ? If you want the answer you should check out this review for Call of Duty: Black Ops III for the Playstation 4


Review - WWE 2K16


If you smell what 2K is cooking then it might be because it is a familiar smell and you might already know what it tastes like. WWE 2K15 released last year to a lukewarm reception and as I long-time wrestling fan, and wrestling-game fan I have always wanted the series to become better and better as the years went by, but sadly it has been the other way around. Last years release was one of the worst in my opinion but since this is the only yearly series of wrestling games being released I keep coming back for more, hoping it will be better. Now I promised myself, that if WWE 2K16 wasn't better than last years release I would never go back to the series, and I am glad to admit that it is better than last years release, but it still isn't great


Review - Samurai Warriors 4-II


Samurai Warriors is back and this time with a follow-up to the previously released Samurai Warriors 4. It is not an expansion and it is not DLC but a stand-alone release in the series. However slapping a 2 at the end of an already numbered title always confuses me so I was eager to check out the reason as to why this is a new game and not a revamped previous release. I found Samurai Warriors 4-II to be a mixed bag and it all depends what you expecting heading into this game


A Newbie Conquers Final Fantasy


In the following months I will dive deep into the land of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. In this series of articles I will share my journey as a completely newbie of both the series, yes I am a Final Fantasy newbie and not especially proud of the fact, and the genre. I have tried to get into numerous FF releases but nobody has really grabbed me, I have also dabbled into numerous MMOs with the same end result. This time its different, I think I have found the reason as to why so many people love this game especially because somehow Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn has managed to do the one thing that other MMOs couldn't, get me passed level 20 and still have my interest. So join me as I stumble across the beautiful land and learn, by failing mostly, how to master this game and hopefully reach level 50 at some point


Review - Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree's Woe and the Blight Below


This is not the Dragon Quest game you are looking for, wait, before you stop reading this review let me explain what that sentence really means. Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree’s Woe and the Blight Below (which might just be one of the longest titles in history) isn't your typical Dragon Quest game but there is enough Dragon Quest lore in here for any fan to still appreciate it. Still not making sense? Then keep reading our review of Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree’s Woe and the Blight Below


Review - Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection


Uncharted has been a flagship title for the Playstation ever since Uncharted: Drake's Fortune first released back in 2007 for the Playstation 3. Not only was it an incredible experience gameplay-wise but also a stunning powerhouse, back then, when it came to the visuals. Since then two more games has dropped in the series Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception. All games managed to push the power of the consoles and improved both visuals and gameplay mechanics to the brim, so it goes without saying that the before the fourth instalment of the series Uncharted 4: A Thief's End drops early next year we get a bundle with the previous three games revamped for the Playstation 4 called Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection


Review - Transformers Devastation


Back in the day there was two things that mattered to me, He-Man and his Universe and Transformers. As a die hard fan of both of those series it saddens me that there really never has been a game adaptation of either that has really struck me, not saying there has been a ton of He-Man games but Transformers on the other hand has seen a nice set of releases since the 80s. The latest release in the Transformers franchise is Devastation and it is by far the most beautiful and nostalgic Transformers game ever released, sadly it is too short and the scenario never really changes all that much, but man oh man how I love this game


Review - Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5


Here we are, nearly 16 years since the first Tony Hawk Pro Skater released. I played the game on my Playstation and it was the first time I had ever put a skateboard game on my top 10 games of that year (I am not forgetting Skate or Die, I just didn't make lists back then). I have always been a skater in real life until I got older and couldn't keep up with “those darn kids and their hover-boards”, but I never lost interest in the art of skateboarding and followed the series with every release it saw. And it is with a sad heart and a confused mind I type up this review with only really one question lingering in the back of my head this whole time, what the hell happened?


Review - Skylanders Superchargers


Toys-to-life is a phenomenon without questions, the way the toys-to-life concept has blossomed over the last couple of years is nothing but amazing. Now some of you might have a different view of these toys that you can interact with but as a father of two it is more of a love hate kind of thing. I love seeing my kids interact with them but I hate buying them, so you can imagine my sigh of relief when I took it upon myself to review the latest in the Skylanders franchise, Skylanders Superchargers for the Playstation 4
