Dragon Ball Xenoverse Review

by Nick Hancheton 24/02/2015
Dragon Ball games often carry a “been there done that” feeling with them. They’ve often rehashed the same story that everyone is used to, being the Freiza, Cell and Buu saga’s, and then maybe throwing in a movie or two for good measure. You know what to expect in regards to story, and that can definitely […]

The Evolution of the JRPG: Then and Now

by Nick Hancheton 29/12/2014
(Note: This article refers mostly to the Final Fantasy series for examples but the vast majority of points are relevant for all titles early on in the JRPG genre.) The Japanese RPGs of yesteryear and very much dead and buried. Turn-based battles are, for the most part, a thing of the past. Random battles are occasionally […]

E3 2014: The Year of the Beta

by Sai Mealingon 12/06/2014
In my run down of this year’s PlayStation presser, I highlighted that EA caused a temporary glitch in the internet when they announced that a Battlefield: Hardline beta would be immediately available on the PC and PS4 but only to a strictly limited number of people. With E3 audiences becoming larger and larger thanks to non-stop, […]

by Sai Mealingon 11/06/2014
In a time when E3 audiences are growing larger and considerably more remote, EA shook things up on Monday by announcing closed PC and PS4 betas for Battlefield:Hardline which opened immediately and with extremely limited available places. The internet predictably shit itself at that point as the hordes piled onto Battlelog, Origin and PSN hoping […]

Watch_Dogs Review

by Sai Mealingon 27/05/2014
    It’s getting dark and I’ve been chasing this guy for almost 10 minutes now. 5 minutes ago I was pissed off and now I’m absolutely furious. My car stereo is blaring but I’m too focused on the pursuit to notice. As we weave through the Downtown Chicago traffic, I finally see the opportunity […]

Alien Isolation Hands-on: At last the bitch might finally be back

by Sai Mealingon 31/03/2014
If last year’s diabolical Aliens: Colonial Marines had a key weakness then it wasn’t the misleading press demonstrations, superfluous human enemies or even the fact that it was essentially just a re-skinned Borderlands mod with some flashy sound effects. Colonial Marines biggest crime was that it failed to respect the original franchise. This flaw wasn’t […]

Gamescom 2013: Bad News for the UK and Europe

by Sai Mealingon 21/08/2013
During yesterday’s 2013 Gamescom press conference, Sony confirmed that customers who buy any of this year’s forthcoming Activision, EA, Ubisoft, Warner Bros or first-party PS3 releases will be eligible for a special upgrade program which will enable an upgrade to the PS4 program for a nominal fee.

The Walking Dead: 400 Days Review – 9 GPPs

by Sai Mealingon 25/07/2013
An extremely well-crafted experience which perfectly compliments Season One and builds up anticipation for the forthcoming Season Two. A true lesson in the potential of downloadable video game content and interactive storytelling.
