Flinthook - Xbox One Review

Rating: 5.00/5 (1 Vote)

We`re at a time now where the ID market is massive. We are seeing so many developers take their games from other platforms such as mobiles and tablets and moving them over to a console, and bringing their game to a wider audience in a different shape or form. We see new games released every week, and where we wait a while for AAA games to hit the market, you`re always getting something new released in the ID field. But there comes a time where you do wonder whether a game has made the right decision in making a move, or whether an ID game is going to be remembered for being a good ID game, a great one, or one that`s going to fall away. Over the past week, I`ve had the chance to play Flinthook, which is developed and published by Tribute Games. Is it something worth checking out however?

The Walking Dead Season 3: Episode 5: From the Gallows Review

Rating: 5.00/5 (1 Vote)

Well, we`re finally here. We`ve finally approached the end of another Telltale season, and this one has come in the form of the Walking Dead Season 3. If you`ve not played any of the Walking Dead games that Telltale have made, you`re missing out big time on something quite special. They`ve easily become one of my favourite game developers and I look forward to every single release they make. It`s now time for another season to end, as we take into the city and streets of Richmond for Episode 5: From the Gallows, where we`re left with a major cliff-hanger at the end of Episode 4. Will all be as it seems? Or will we go out the Telltale with surprises and much more galore?

Ahh, fresh meat.


When talking about RPGs one name always crops up, Diablo and rightly so. It’s a classic and unfortunately for ever RPG that gets released Diablo will always be the benchmark it must match or best. Victor Vran: Overkill Edition aspires to succeed where many have failed before and with an edition that includes the Fractured Worlds and Motörhead: Through the Ages DLC there is a lot of killing and looting to be done.


Planetbase Review

Rating: 5.00/5 (1 Vote)

Space, The Final Frontier, as someone said on some tv show.  It really is though, as we’ve pretty much explored and colonised our own planet, so the next challenge for mankind is to colonise new planets, and it’s no picnic.  Planetbase gives you what it says on the tin, you build a base on a planet, with the aim of expanding it into a thriving colony.

The game starts with you landing on one of four planets, you start on the easiest one and unlock the others as you reach enough milestones in the game.  Your small craft land with a crew of only 7 and a couple of robots to do the building and the heavy lifting.  The colonists are all trained to perform different roles, Biologist, Engineer, Medic, Guard, or just plain old Worker.  As the game progresses, how many of each role becomes massively important to the success of your base, for example not enough biologists means you won’t produce enough food to keep your population from starvation.

Enter The Gungeon Review

Rating: 5.00/5 (1 Vote)

If at first glance you don’t quite get the pun in the title, after a couple of minutes it becomes apparent that this game is all about the guns.  As you shoot and loot your way through the game, you find all sorts of guns to equip your character with, running the full gamut from the simple crossbow and musket up to huge laser rifles.  All your enemies are anthropomorphic bullets, different colours depending on how many shots it takes to dispatch them and their appearance is often the same as the bullets they fire at you.  At the start of the game you pick from a choice of starting characters, or Gungeoneers, each armed with a measly pea shooter as well as a secondary weapon.  There is the Convict, who can throw Molotov cocktails to cause damage, the Hunter who fires a crossbow and is followed by her faithful dog, The Pilot, whose lock picks are used for opening treasure chests, and the Marine, who can call in a useful ammo drop with his walkie-talkie.

Prey Review

Rating: 5.00/5 (1 Vote)

I`m not too sure what my true thoughts are on the game that I`m going to write about. I`m unsure as it was a game that I had been so looking forward to. When they announced Prey at E3 last year, although a re-boot, I was ecstatic and having been a huge fan of the Prey games back on the Xbox 360, I was buzzing to get my chance to have a play on something that I`d been so looking forward too. Now, I`m not too sure whether I still feel the same buzz and excitement.

Talent Not Included Review

Rating: 0/5 (0 Votes)

Take your seats, and get ready, because you`re about to step into the theatre. You`re about to watch a magnificent work of art. The show you`re about to watch is actually a nominated award winner, and you`re in for a right treat. It`s brought to you by Frima Studios, the hit cast consists of 3 actors, all of which are starring in their very own way. I hope you`ve got the popcorn and drinks at the ready, because you`re going to be in for a treat. Join me, as we watch and dazzle our way through, and by the way, Talent`s not included in this one I`m afraid.

Injustice 2 Review

Rating: 5.00/5 (2 Votes)

Let me take you on a journey, into the world of DC and the world of Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Super Girl and many more just to name a few. Over the past week, I`ve had the chance to jump into the world of DC and into the world of Injustice 2, brought to us by NetherRealm Studios and Warner Bros. We`re going to jump into the DC characters as we work together to take down the evil Brainiac and stop the Society from causing all sorts of mayhem. Is it however a game that`s going to be worth the play-through? Well, it certainly is, and I cannot stop playing it.
