Battle Chasers: Nightwar Review

Battle Chasers: Nightwar is a turnbased combat, dungeon crawler, developed by Airship Syndicate, and published by THQ Nordic. Releasing on Oct 3, for PC, PS4, XboxOne and Nintendo Switch, this RPG was everything I could ever dream of. The story follows a group of adventures who have been sworn to


Batman: The Enemy Within – Episode 2 Review

 Episode 2, “The Pact” released on October 3. This review will contain spoilers from the previous episode, and the start of this episode. The second episode in the Telltale Batman series picks up right where we left off in the previous episode. The last episode left us in typical Telltale fashion


Figment Review

Figment is an action adventure game, developed and published by Bedtime Digital Games who have previously brought us smaller titles such as Back to Bed and Chronology, but have not released a new game in a few years until now.  The game follows the story of Dusty, and his companion,


Time Recoil Review

Time Recoil is an action top down shooter, developed by 10tons Ltd, releasing on August 10 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.  I have to be honest, the plot for Time Recoil did wear a little thin after the first couple of hours. None of the characters really spun any


Life is Strange: Before the Storm – Episode 1: Awake Review

Life is Strange: Before the Storm: Episode 1 has got off to a little bit of a stuttering start for me. I was very disappointed by the art style of choice, but the story that is unfolding will certainly be the most impactful feature of the game, much like the first. If the franchise is something you are in love with, then it will be a no brainer as I can’t really see them messing up the story.

Batman: The Enemy Within – Episode 1

2017 has brought us a handful of Telltale Games, with the finale of The Walking Dead: A New Frontier, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, a second Season of MineCraft, but possibly the most surprising of the bunch, was season two of the Batman series. Whilst I actually really enjoyed the


Tokyo 42 Review

Tokyo 42 was announced a while ago now, and ever since it has been highly anticipated. The heavily inspired by Grand Theft Auto and Syndicate indie game, released on May 31 on PC and Xbox. From a new development team, SMAC Games, and published by another team, more than likely


Seven: The Days Long Gone Review

Despite the buggy AI, and frame rate issues, Seven: The Days Long Gone was still a highly enjoyable game. It’s a real RPG experience that the hardcore gamers out there will enjoy more than anything. A few of the mechanics and design choices may put off the younger generation, but it’s a brilliant stealth sandbox regardless
