Siegecraft Commander PC/HTC Vive/PS4 review

If there’s something that VR is lacking, it’s a decent strategy game. Having played games like Final Approach, seeing a miniature world below you, via your virtual reality head mounted display, is pretty awesome. Everything looks like freaky Lilliputian animated models.

Aussie outfit, Blowfish studios, kind of fills that void. And I say kind of. Continue reading Siegecraft Commander PC/HTC Vive/PS4 review

Sid Meier’s Civilization VI PC review

After the deluge of video game releases at the end of last year, it is only now that I’ve found the time to get right into what may well my favourite game of 2016, Sid Meier’s Civilization VI.

It’s hard to believe that Sid Meier’s revered series has been going for 25 years. The grand-daddy of turn-based strategy games has spawned many copy-cats, but none have managed to capture the depth of gameplay offered by the Civilization games.

The Last Guardian PS4 review

The Last Guardian is a game that’s been a long time coming. Fumito Ueda’s follow-up to his classic PlayStation 2 games Ico and Shadow of the Colossus has been in development since 2007. It’s taken so long to finish that many thought the game would never see the light of day. Continue reading The Last Guardian PS4 review

Resident Evil 7 PlayStation VR – someone is going to die!

I was standing in a grotty-looking hallway, a ghostly figure having just walked past me, when I said to myself, “F— this”, and took off my PlayStation VR Headset. Continue reading Resident Evil 7 PlayStation VR – someone is going to die!

Not so Final Fantasy: Final Fantasy XV PlayStation 4 Pro review

The revered JRPG series finally gets its log-awaited fifteenth instalment, Final Fantasy XV.

Final Fantasy XV has been a long time coming, having been in development for ten years. It’s taken so long that it’s had to be shunted from its original Final Fantasy Verses XIII title (FFXIII released in 2009) all the way up to FFXV (the online-only FFXIV first released in 2010 and rebooted in 2013). Continue reading Not so Final Fantasy: Final Fantasy XV PlayStation 4 Pro review
