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


Review - PES 2016


'tis the season to be jolly, if you are a football fan. I mean what better time of the year than when it is getting colder outside and you don't have to leave the comfort of your own home to kick that pesky ball around like some kind of lunatic. I mean seriously, why couldn't real football be as easy as video games? Fear not, tis the season for football games to release and we all know there are really only two, Fifa and PES, this year we have chosen the winner and therefore we have only one review, our PES 2016 review and the reason why PES 2016 is the best football game out there right now


Review - NBA 2K16

harden nba 2k16 1433455905690 19229208 ver1.0 640 480

Take me back to the 90s when the words “A Spike Lee Joint” meant that you were about to see something revolutionary, the year however is 2016 or should I say 2K16. A new era of sport games has come and gone and last years release in the NBA 2K series saw a improved game which I personally though would have just kept improving but sadly this is not the case this time around, but relax, sit down and rest your eyeballs on this as we go for nothing but nets with the latest release from 2K, NBA 2K16


Review - Destiny: The Taken King


Do you feel like a reason to head back into the wonderful world of Destiny? Have you given up hope on the game as you, and many other, had enough of being cheated out of engram but yet secretly hoped it would get fixed because the shooting is some of the best in any shooter game out there? Tired of the same old missions, head back to the tower, collect your rewards and head back out and wished for more content? Think you are levelled up enough for it not to matter and dreaming about a brand new level cap? Well you my friend are going to love what I have to say about the newly released expansion for Destiny entitled The Taken King...


Review - Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain


It is time for the swansong to commence and for us all to wave goodbye to what we all know and love as the Metal Gear Solid franchise. What started out as a weird game has turned into some of the most memorable experiences in gaming history. A story that has had us scratching and clawing at our heads trying to paste it all together to sum up a somewhat coherent story and with the release of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain we wave goodbye to the brilliant mind of Kojima, at least under the Konami umbrella, and what a way to go out it is. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is one of the best games released on the current gen consoles but it is also one of the least Metal Gear games in Kojima history


Review - Tearaway Unfolded


Tearaway is back and this time it gives players who didn't get to experience this beautiful gem of a game when it first released on the Playstation Vita, who owns a Playstation 4, a chance to experience it for themselves. And if you are like me, a grown man with kids or just really into chill out games aimed mostly for kids then there is no reason for you not to pick this up. Even if you played the original there are new stuff and new ways to play on the Playstation 4 that makes the game worth a second play through


Review - Until Dawn


These last couple of years survival horror games has taken a prominent place in the interest of gamers around the world. Not since the Resident Evil series ruled the world have we seen this many survival horror games being released, some with greater success than others. The only problem with survival horror games lately has been nailing the gameplay with the suspense, but along comes Until Dawn


Review - One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3

header37 1

One Piece has since its humble beginnings in the late 90s as a written manga series turned into a franchise with over 700 episodes released, thirteen animated feature films, two original video animation, and five television specials. It has produced numerous merchandise such as trading cards and last but certainly not least, games. We are here, once again, to review the latest game in the hugely popular One Piece series, One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 on the Playstation 4. Can too much of anything become a burden or does Luffy and his pirate buddies manage to pull it off once again?


Review - Onechanbara Z2: Chaos


OneeChanbara or Onechanbara, onee-chan, the Japanese word translates into “big sister” or according to Wiki “a colloquialism for a young adult woman”, while chanbara translates to “sword fighting”. Those two translations gives you a glimpse into what you are dealing with here, young adult bad ass women ready to kick ass. Some might say, if they just watch the screenshots of this game, that the game is sexist really haven’t played a OneeChanbara game. Sure the women are dressed in a certain way but once you get to control one of them you quickly realize they are bad ass killing machines. I got to play around with the latest western release entitled Onechanbara Z2: Chaos


Review - Goat Simulator (PS4)


How would you feel if I said to you that you could become a goat for as long as you like, you would probably look at me weird and walk across the road and try to avoid me in the future, but what if I added that this would only be available to you through the wonderful magic of video games. Yes, thanks to video games we can now all experience what it truly would be like to be a goat. After years of trucking (no pun intended) through different simulator games since almost the beginning of gaming we finally get what we all came here to see and experience, Goat Simulator on current-gen consoles


Review - Gauntlet Slayer Edition


Gauntlet has returned, and if you still haven't played a Gauntlet game it is about time. Gauntlet Slayer Edition gives you all the action you have come to expect from a Gauntlet game in the past, the only thing that is missing from this version is you do not need to fill your pockets with quarters for the arcade machine, other than that, it is pretty much everything a Gauntlet game should posses


Review - Submerged


Uppercut Games is a small independent game developer studio who recently released their latest game called Submerged. A game about a sister trying to save her wounded brother in a waste open water world armed with only a telescope it is your job to scale the buildings and find what you need to help your brother


Review - God of War III Remastered


I have played all the God of War games, and I still remember my jaw dropping when I first played God of War back on the Playstation 2. God of War 2 however was the game that made this one of my favourite series on the Playstation and I continued to follow the series as it progressed. And here I am, years later, replaying God of War 3 for the second time, on a Playstation 4 and wondering if it is all worth it


Review - Journey PS4


Journey was to me the most beautiful experience I had ever experienced on a Playstation when I first played Journey back when it released on the Playstation 3, so when I got word there was a new improved version about to release for the Playstation 4 I was first in line to request a review code, and the day it popped into my mail I knew that evening would become special


Review - Trials Fusion Awesome Level Max

awesome-level-newstrailer 210535

I have been an Trials fan since the first game released, since then I have laughed, cried, broken controllers and rejoiced, so who better than me to get my grabby paws on the new DLC from Red Lynx. I have played games since the late 80s but it is the first time I jumped onto the back of a unicorn as a kitty with a golden clock, and this is my review for Trials Fusion Awesome Level Max for the PS4
