Batman’s Arkham Adventures
When Rocksteady released the original Batman: Arkham Asylum they finally nailed something that game developers had been trying and failing to do for years – they produced a super hero game with high production values, a real respect for the source material and a blend of superb artwork and addictive gameplay. It was easily the […]
Cars 2: The Videogame Review
In an attempt to get some PS3 time in the face of a Dragon Age addicted wife and a two year-old son who’s either watching Spongebob Squarepants on Netflix or another Pixar Blu-ray I got Cars 2: The Videogame. It was a Christmas present for my son who is obsessed with Lightning McQueen and Mater. […]
Top Ten FPS Games of All Time
The first-person shooter genre is massively popular and has a huge and loyal fan base committed to spending hours in virtual environments blowing each other to smithereens. There’s nothing quite like the adrenaline soaked chaos of a good FPS session. If it goes well it can be better than a course of anger management, if […]
Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 Review
Another season, another version of PES. So is Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 the game to pinch the football crown back from FIFA? It depends on what you’re looking for really. This year’s release offers a few welcome refinements that really improve the gameplay and boost your attacking options. If you missed the end to end […]
Funniest PES Goal Ever
I’ve played a lot of PES over the years and it would be fair to say that the goalies can be shockingly inept at times but this is the funniest goal we’ve ever seen. Typically I was playing as Celtic when my Rangers supporting mate scored this one.
Zombies and Total War
After a busy couple of months I’ve been gaming more again. The current addiction is Shogun 2: Total War, predictably enough. Here’s my Shogun 2: Total War review and I just did a series of guides for newcomers, check out Shogun 2: Total War Guide. It is the best TW so far. On the PS3 […]
Kinect for Casual Gamers
The Wii was a surprisingly big success considering Nintendo ignored the arms race towards more powerful tech and instead focussed on accessibility. By going for the mass market instead of pandering to hardcore gamers they captured a whole new audience of people who don’t traditionally buy game consoles or play games. Naturally Sony and Microsoft […]
Bloody Good Time
So the last big “ish” game I worked on is hobbling towards release. Bloody Good Time is like a reworked version of The Ship with loads of differences and a b-movie backdrop. I left well before the end of development and I’m not going to talk about working on it, suffice to say I didn’t […]
What’s Wrong with PES 2011?
Before I launch into what is going to seem like a cruel attack on PES 2011 I have to explain I have been a hardcore fan of the series for the past few years and have always rated it more highly than FIFA. Even last year’s effort still retained that multiplayer fun, end to end, […]
Is Heavy Rain Most Depressing Game Ever?
I’ve started playing Heavy Rain, yes I realise I’m a bit late to the party but so many games, so little time, you know how it goes. My mate who gave me this game said it was really good, bit different, quick time event reaction ala Shenmue, well worth a go. So I finally got […]
