LEGO 2K Drive Review

Within the myriad of LEGO racing games, LEGO 2K Drive does just about enough to carve an identity for itself.

Moonrise Fall Review

With themes of loss, death, hope, sadness, survival and everything else, it isn’t necessarily the first-choice setting for a puzzle game. But all that adds up to make Moonrise Fall a unique title in that respect.

Saints Row: The Heist & The Hazardous Review

If you are a fan of the main missions in Saints Row, you will likely have fun with what is found in The Heist & The Hazardous.

Scream VI – Film Review

Scream VI is one of the strongest in the franchise, keeping those meta overtones whilst having plenty of gratuitous violence that fans have been enjoying for nearly 30 years.

In-depth look at Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League continues to creep up in the release calendar. Coming from Rocksteady Studios, anticipation has rightly been high. But up until now, there has been very little in the way of gameplay and what the game will actually involve. That has all changed now, so let’s take an in-depth look at what’s to come.

Build the airport of your dreams in SimAirport

Ok, so it is highly likely that you haven’t thought of what your dream airport would look like if you had creative control. But what if I told you that you could make an absolute fortune if you had a successfully running one? I bet now you are interested. Find out how in SimAirport, out today on Xbox after a very positive run on Steam.

The Urban Veteran: Pro Pack is out now for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II

As part of Season 02 for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II and Warzone 2.0, a whole host of new DLC will be released alongside the traditional battle passes. And you can bet that if a price can be put on it, it will be showing on the Xbox Store soon. One of those is the Urban Veteran: Pro Pack and it is out today for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II on Xbox, PlayStation and PC.

Scaramuccia arrives in Hunt: Showdown – Commedia Della Morte DLC

Whilst it doesn’t get the numbers or the plaudits as other online multiplayer games out there, there is no denying that Hunt: Showdown doesn’t have a loyal fan base. And their reward today is another new Hunter with a mask that is sure to put the willy’s up even the more seasoned hunter. The Commedia Della Morte DLC for Hunt: Showdown is out now on Xbox, PlayStation and PC and introduces Scaramuccia.

Lootbox Lyfe+ shows a world post-lootboxes

Anyone that has ever bought a lootbox will know that disappointing feeling you get when a pull isn’t quite as good as you were hoping for. Some would argue it is a feeling similar to losing a bet in a bookies. Thankfully then, the whole world isn’t obsessed with them. If they were, forgetting to eat and live would be a very real prospect. In Lootbox Lyfe+, out today on Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo Switch, we get a glimpse of that world.

Looking for Aliens Review

Looking for Aliens has a real quirkiness to it, one that the hidden object gameplay lends itself to rather well.

We Need To Talk About Video Game Remakes

We need to talk about video game remakes. They’re not everyone’s cup of tea, but why then are so many appearing?

OddBallers Review

OddBallers is perfect for a free-to-play transition or as an Xbox Game Pass staple.

Touchdown Pinball Review

You can’t argue with the price of Touchdown Pinball, but it very much feels like a case of getting what you pay for.

Early access for Like a Dragon: Ishin! starts now

I said after the launch of Lost Judgment and its simultaneous worldwide release that the Yakuza/Like a Dragon franchise was now a global thing. That is further cemented today by the release of a game that when originally released it was in Japan only. This remake corrects that for all the fans around the world. Early access for Like a Dragon: Ishin! begins now on Xbox, PlayStation and PC.

CometStriker DX is a bullet-hell featuring a cool dog

Few game genre names get their point across as well as ‘bullet-hell’. Action-adventure is the most generic description ever and calling a game stealth just means I won’t have the patience for it. But the term bullet-hell just perfectly conjures up what you are about to deal with. And also means I won’t have the patience for it. CometStriker DX is out now on Xbox.

Another heroic fox is here to save the day in Rise of Fox Hero

Has any other animal been represented as much as a fox in videogames? Other than humans obviously. I would put a healthy amount of money on foxes coming out on top. And here it yet another one. Rise of Fox Hero is out today on Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch and PC.

Stop the undead in Road Stones

The undead have awakened once again, but this time they are keeping to the roads and paths. No shortcuts for these walkers! Use the undead’s penchant for sticking to the path against them in Road Stones, out today on Xbox and PlayStation.

Gigantosaurus: Dino Kart is a kid-friendly kart racer

Not to sound contradictory, but the majority of kart racers are kid-friendly. The odd couple though – such as South Park Rally and the unlockable one for Mortal Kombat: Armageddon – definitely are not suitable. And one with a huge dinosaur skulking around the track attempting to eat you may not sound like one either, but for those that do not know, it is based on a kids cartoon. So, we’re all safe here. Gigantosaurus: Dino Kart is out today on Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo Switch.

Another JRPG masterpiece Tales of Symphonia gets the remastered treatment

Long-running JRPG series can be daunting prospects to get into. For example, I cannot begin to tell you the amount of times I’ve had friends asking if they need to have played all the others before starting the latest Final Fantasy game. I get it, naming conventions suggest they are all related. So, going back to an earlier title will only ever help, right? Whilst the Tales series aren’t going back to the very beginning with this next release, it is certainly far enough back to get new players interested. From the series most recent release in Tales of Arise, we are heading back some 20 years for the next release. Tales of Symphonia Remastered is out today on Xbox, PlayStation, and Nintendo Switch.
