Battlefield 4 review

Battlefield 4 Review

Developers are facing a difficult dilemma right now. Do they develop games for the next generation, or for the old generation? Or do they attempt some kind of mix of the two? Developing a game to run on the Xbox One and PS4 has obvious advantages; they have so much more power to play with….

Gta v review

GTA V Review

It’s difficult to know where to start with GTA V. As a reviewer, I want my opening gambit to not only capture my reader but to also summarize nicely whatever game I happen to be reviewing at the time.

Review: Saints Row IV

The Saints Row franchise has never really been known for its subtlety. From pimp canes and samurai swords, to dildo bats and mollusk launchers, the Saints Row series has introduced us to ever increasing cast of bat-shit-crazy weapons, characters and story-lines.

Metro Last Light –…

Star Trek: The Game Review

Star Trek: The Game, what can really be said? As a general rule, movie tie-in games are a bit rubbish. As with any general rule, of course, there are exceptions.
