Non-VR players get un-Tethered!

Tethered is one of the most delightful VR games that I’ve played. Previously only available for both PlayStation VR and Rift/Vive PC players, the game can now be enjoyed by those limited to just their TV/monitor.

It’s a god game that harks right back to the likes of Lionhead’s Black and White, and even all the way back to the classic Populous. Players must shepherd little people, imaginatively called peeps, around a floating island, instructing them to perform various tasks. Continue reading Non-VR players get un-Tethered!

Cities Skylines Xbox One Edition review

Hands-down the best city building game is now out on Xbox One.

When Cities Skylines was released on PC my expectations were low. Developed by Colossal Order, the Finnish team responsible for the OK-ish Cities in Motion games, I was expecting a mild bit of entertainment at most. Hopefully enough to take away the bad taste of the very disappointing Sim City reboot.

To say I was pleasantly surprised is an understatement. Cities Skylines turned out to be exactly the game that EA’s Sim City reboot wasn’t- a perfect city building game.

The fact that the best city building game is now available on Xbox One is great, but don’t expect all the bells and whistles of the PC version. Continue reading Cities Skylines Xbox One Edition review

Mass Effect: Andromeda Xbox One review

When Mass Effect 3 bookended EA’s epic series of sci-fi RPGs, it wasn’t exactly clear how a sequel would work. In order to continue the franchise, some creativity would be required. Continue reading Mass Effect: Andromeda Xbox One review

FlatOut 4: Total Insanity Xbox One review

One of the first racing games that had me holding my breath the entire lap was Bizarre Creations’ Destruction Derby 2 on the original PlayStation. Bigben’s FlatOut 4: Total Insanity had exactly the same effect on me.

Whilst not the quite as perfectly honed a specimen as the likes of say Forza Horizons 3, FlatOut 4 is still a very entertaining racer, and pretty exhilarating with it. Continue reading FlatOut 4: Total Insanity Xbox One review

Horizon Zero Dawn PS4 Pro review

With Horizon Zero Dawn, Killzone developer Guerrilla Games swaps interplanetary war for a stark future were robotic creatures roam a lush post-apocalyptic Earth.

Well, make that post-post-apocalyptic. Whatever it was that lead to the demise of the world around us happened over a thousand years ago. Continue reading Horizon Zero Dawn PS4 Pro review

Yakuza Zero PlayStation 4 review

Yakuza Zero is a prequel to the main series and is set in the December of 1988. It tells the origin of the series’ protagonists, Kazuma Kiryu and Goro Majima, two unlikely Yakuza.

Part fighting game, part soap opera, part graphic novel, the Yakuza games have a cult following, especially in Japan, but they’ve never really taken off in the west. Continue reading Yakuza Zero PlayStation 4 review
