Onimusha:Warlords

Once upon a time, Capcom were among the most loved and respected names in game development. Over the years, their star has waxed and waned several times, but they have never truly lost that sense of nostalgia, meaning that newer games still get people’s attention. Even if they ultimately fall a bit short of expectations.…

Resident Evil 2

A little over twenty years ago, Resident Evil landed in our laps and brought an honest to peanuts B movie horror under our direct control. Cheesy, terribly delivered dialogue, ludicrous ‘twists’ and ridiculous monsters. Two years later, the sequel arrived and took the premise, but firmly grounded it and became far more serious, though still…

The Quiet Man

By now, I’m sure you’ve all heard that The Quiet Man is absolutely terrible. So one might be wondering why we are here throwing our two cents in. Well, there are a number of reasons. Firstly, the premise was rather intriguing, and a lot of people seem to have fundamentally misunderstood what being deaf actually…

Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver 2

As we've already covered, the Legacy of Kain series has more than earned its reputation as gaming classics. Each of them, at the time and even since (for the most part) has set the bar extremely high, holding up beautifully against the best the industry has to offer. And Soul Reaver 2 is no exception…

Vampyr

DONTNOD have been around for a while now, longer than some may realise. Though they may have only risen to prominence more recently, especially after the release of Life is Strange, their earlier game was a 3rd person action title. So far from being a departure, Vampyr would be better categorised as a return to…

Call of Cthulhu

Ahh, Lovecraft. Long considered the Granddaddy of horror, for good reason, his works have seen many an adaptation over the years. Some good, some less so. But all too rarely have we seen a truly great entry, in any medium other than his original literature. Silent Hill probably stands as the best representation of his…

Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver

Soul Reaver is an amazing game. In fact, the Legacy of Kain franchise remains one of the best in gaming history. The games themselves have certainly aged, but they have done so gracefully. Unlike many over the years, they have not found themselves becoming archaic to the point of being virtually uplayable. Soul Reaver itself…

Agony

Ahh yes, Kickstarter, equal parts one of the best and worst things to happen to the gaming world. On the one hand, it has enabled the production of so many games that would otherwise have never existed. On the other…it’s enabled the production of so many games that should otherwise have never existed. By now,…
