Infinite Minigolf Review
As someone who grew up heavily involved in and fully focused on football, golf was never something that I ever really found myself too interested in. Sure, we all had interest growing up when the Masters tournament would be on the TV, but that was always as far as the interest in golf had gone for me. At least until I was in my late teens and I discovered the minigolf course next to my local arcade. From that point on, any time a golf ball crossed my path the first thought would be to whip up a quick course out of whatever I could find.
Infinite Minigolf is the latest game to allow me to venture into the world of minigolf and recall those memories of yesteryear. So I dived in to see [...]

Aven Colony Review
Aven Prime is an alien planet full of mystery. It is up to you to harness that mystery so you can build and expand small preset colonies into sprawling cities, in order to keep the citizens happy, well fed and above all else, safe. Oh, and you'll have to prove your worth as a colony planner and space explorer to your elders at the same time.

Cars 3: Driven To Win Review
Avalanche Software have released a game based on the new Cars movie that is currently doing the rounds at the local multiplex, so the question that I will attempt to answer is have they done a decent job, or is it a cash grab like in the bad old days?

Marvel Heroes Omega Review
Everyone loves a freebie, don’t they? That’s what developers Gazillion are hoping is true with their Marvel themed MMO Action-RPG game Marvel Heroes Omega.
Slapping the Marvel name on anything at the moment is a great way to draw in the masses. Being a free-to-play title doesn’t always mean success though, so that’s why I’m here to figure out whether it’s worth your time and effort. Is it a comic book fan’s dream, or is it just a micro-transaction filled hell?

Minecraft: Story Mode Season Two – Episode One “Hero in Residence” Review
The extended first season of Minecraft: Story Mode ended on a massive high, leaving myself and many other gamers open to the possibility of additional tales in the future. Well, Telltale Games have been working with Mojang to bring a five-part second season to fruition and the first episode, “Hero in Residence”, has now arrived. But where exactly can they take the narrative to next, won’t it just become a stale affair with the same old characters?

Venom Arcade Fight Stick for Xbox One, PS4 and PC Review
If you’re a fight fan, preferring to spend your gaming time smashing fists into faces and dropping a well timed boot onto a knee, you’ll know that there is only one type of controller you really want. A fight stick. And that is why Venom have entered the market with their Arcade Fight Stick

Moon Hunters Review
By my reckoning, a game should ultimately deliver one thing. Whether it be a shooter’s thrill, a petrol-head’s delight or a tactical genius’ dream, above everything else, a game should be fun. It’s the main draw that keeps us gamers going back time and time again to partake in all that each individual title brings.
So when I heard that Kitfox Games were selling their latest title, Moon Hunters, on the back of it being a co-operative personality test, I wasn’t overly enthused. I mean, personality tests? How the hell would that deliver the fun ingredient that we need?

What Remains of Edith Finch Review
We all have family stories and hidden secrets. Fables about heroic or bad relatives passed down from mother and father to daughter and son. We’ve all had that uncle who became the black sheep of the family due to dodgy dealings in back alleys, that great aunt who did something mysterious and secret in the war, or that son who would always be broke and never amount to anything (that’s me by the way). What Remains of Edith Finch is a game about stories, families, secrets and death.
It’s a short game, it’s unlike anything I’ve ever played, and it’s absolutely fantastic.

Iron Crypticle Review
In order to get me super interested in a game, you only have to utter three words - twin stick shooting. When the developer behind the latest twin-sticker has also got previous history for providing one of the most enjoyable Xbox One indie titles to date, then you could probably see and feel my excitement from a mile off.
But have TIKIPOD, the devs behind the awesome AQUA KITTY UDX Xbox One Edition, and now the latest twin-stick shooter to hit the market, Iron Crypticle, kept up their good run of form, or does this dungeon crawling shooter fail to live up to my own personally built hype?
