Homefront: The Revolution

Despite the lukewarm reception of 2011’s Homefront, The Revolution has arrived after a long and troubled development cycle, which saw the sequel rights change hands no more than three times. The Revolution has sneaked on to consoles and PC platforms with little fanfare. Described as a “reimagining” of the original, does The Revolution strike a…

DOOM

Doom has deep roots. It is pretty much grandfather to FPS genre as a whole with only Wolfenstein rivalling its record. The revival of the latter proved that old school franchises can stand strong again in today’s market. And so can DOOM. While a lot of people were put off by DOOM’s reveal during 2015s…

Stellaris

Paradox has a reputation for making good strategy games, however Stellaris is their first venture into the field of Sci-Fi 4X, a niche that is notoriously difficult to make games for. Can Paradox break into this new market where so many others have failed? Can they even stand out in 2016, a year when so…

The Crew Wild Run

When The Crew originally arrived back in 2014, it caught most people’s attention for being something genuinely unique in the world of MMOs. An open world, co-operative/PVP based driving simulator. With a cohesive, albeit often very silly (I heard it on the dark web!) single player story. Rapidly gaining far more attention for persistent network…

Drizzlepath: Genie

Drizzlepath: Genie grasped me at first with its looks and fancy trailers. Seeing this brought hope to the franchise, a chance to remake, rethink and redo what the first Drizzlepath missed. The original game had its highs and lows so expecting improvements wasn’t a tall ask for the sequel.  The end result was quite a…

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada

2016 is set to be a big year for Warhammer fans with multiple titles lined up that seek to bring this universe to our screens. It was only a few years ago, with the destruction of THQ, that certain doom for the license was prophesied. Luckily, and in some cases unluckily, the failure of THQ…

Dark Souls III

Dark Souls showed gamers castles in ruins, poisonous swamps, a world that’s on the brink, but more than all that they introduced us to an all too familiar screen. What I’m here to tell you is that through all the times you’ll die, all the walls you’ll hit, and all the skeletons that’ll run you…

The Banner Saga 2

Two years after the beginning of the epic poem in video game form began, the next instalment in The Banner Saga has emerged. The first game looked like a gorgeous collaboration between Don Bluth and Eyvind Earle, whilst playing like a cross between a RPG and a RTS that did not skimp on either half,…

The basic idea of SUPERHOT is simple – time moves only when you move. This allows you to plan your actions and deal with the overwhelming enemies in an awesome manner. Initially, this game was made for 2013 “7 Day FPS Challenge” with an online demo released the same year. The popularity of the demo…

Far Cry Primal

The Far Cry franchise has changed hands, protagonists and environments. None of the games have stuck with the same location, with the exception of Blood Dragon. Far Cry Primal is here to shake things up though with a blast from the very distant past. This instalment has not only chosen a setting new to the…

Street Fighter V

Street Fighter. It’s the series that invented the quarter-circle forward and has managed to beat out competitors for more than two decades. Of those two decades, Street Fighter IV lasted almost one of them by itself with its span of 7 long years, but its time has finally come to be replaced with SF V.…
