Darren Edwards

I have been playing games since a very early age, thanks to my Dad's encouragement. I've been an Xbox gamer since the very beginning, the Master Chief is to thank for that. I'm also a big Nintendo geek, and my other half is a PlayStation nut. I'll play pretty much anything in any genre (although FIFA and COD maybe pushing it).

Super Crazy Rhythm Castle Review

Super Crazy Rhythm Castle is wacky, inventive and a whole lot of fun. If you can see through the asking price, you’ll be tapping away in no time.

Why You Should Be Excited for Tekken 8

It’s been a long time since I’ve played a proper arcade fighting game, and even longer since I’ve played Tekken - but Tekken 8 is coming!

Trash is Fun Review

Trash is Fun is a wholesome (if brief) experience that just goes to show that recycling can indeed be fun.

Thirsty Suitors Review

Thirsty Suitors may not boast the best mechanics or the flashiest gimmicks, but it more than makes up for that by telling a wonderfully evocative, charming and often funny story.

Atari Flashback Classics Volume 3 Review

I’m not quite old enough to have headed out to the arcades to play games; thankfully I’ve always had the luxury of being able to play at home. Part of me wishes I could have been part of that community though, if only for the social aspect, something that is predominantly an online affair these days. Thanks to the wonders of technology though a single disc can now squeeze in 14 of these arcade machines, and 36 home console releases, rather easily. It is here where we see the entrance of Atari Flashback Classics Volume 3 on Xbox One.

Spyro Reignited Trilogy Review

The Spyro Reignited Trilogy containing Spyro The Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage! and Spyro: Year of the Dragon. It feels like a love letter to fans and a remake we can all agree the gaming masses have a huge appetite for.

FullBlast Review

One such game that I sank hours into when I was younger was R-Type. I found the combination of frantic action and weird and wonderful enemies, each who had their own behaviours, truly irresistible. It was easy to pick up and play, but just as easy to lose hours trying to conquer this hard-as-nails shooter. It’s for this reason that FullBlast immediately grabbed my attention.

Doodle God: Crime City Review

Originally the Doodle God series started life as a mobile game, and has seen several ports and sequels since its inception around 8 years ago. Now though it is moving on to home consoles once more, this time in the form of Doodle God: Crime City, only on Xbox One.

Project Highrise: Architect’s Edition Review

Gaming is a beautifully varied pursuit. You can kill half an hour on your way to work matching fruit or flinging birds around, or you can spend hours, even days, constructing detailed worlds whilst taking great care and pride in your creations. And, of course, there is a vast middleground between those two extremes to be enjoyed as well. One of my favourite ways to lose whole days to gaming is to immerse myself in a simulator. Whether I’m building hospitals, roller coasters or whole cities if the gameplay is formulated properly, I’ll keep coming back for more. So, is Project Highrise worth your free hours and days, and does it tower above the rest?

Nefarious Review

There was a time when side-scrolling platform games were the dominant genre, and as a result their heroes were catapulted to worldwide fame. They all, however, had a similar formula; battle through various themed stages, fight bosses and collect valuables to eventually defeat your arch-nemesis. As time went by and gaming evolved, it became harder to stand out in this overcrowded space so developers focused their efforts elsewhere, for the most part. Nefarious makes sure to mix things up from the very start.

Halo: The 5 games you need to play before the Chief’s next adventure

“Halo, it’s finished”. “No, I think we’re just getting started”. Back in 2001, who predicted just how huge this series would become? I’ll admit that I didn’t. As we find ourselves salivating over the teaser for Halo: Infinite, which dropped at this year’s E3 expo, we can only wonder just how long we will have to wait for the next (and perhaps last) major entry in the franchise. Now seems like a good time to run down the top 5 Halo games of all time, as we cross everything, hoping Infinite will sit right at the top of the pile.
