by Nick Hancheton 16/12/2014
Voice acting can often make or break a game and this is especially true for RPG’s.

Tales of Xillia 2 Review – Welcome back to Elympios

by Nick Hancheton 03/09/2014
The Tales series, originating back in 1995 for the SNES, is a series that has continued to provide beautiful worlds, an exciting and extravagant cast of characters, and mesmerising stories.

There were the dates that Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo first unveiled their ‘Next Generation’ consoles, and got the internet excited, confused, and disappointed.

InFamous: Second Son Review

by Sai Mealingon 11/04/2014
I should probably get something out of the way first with this review.
