Just Dance 2023 Review

Just Dance 2023 is another colourful slice of dance wrapped up in stunning visuals and catchy tunes - perfect for warming yourself up on a cold night, chilling out with friends or heating up the party. For us, it’s got the best playlist for a good few years too. 

Sneak Energy – Does it deserve the hype?

Sneak claims their drinks react fast, taking approximately ten minutes for all the key active ingredients to start to take effect. I can certainly attest to this, at least to the caffeine. I could feel a pleasant buzz almost immediately after the first few sips which increased gradually over the next thirty minutes or so.

Can Wraith Energy make you a better gamer?

Wraith Energy has designed their drinks especially with gamers, content creators and esports athletes in mind and claim that they aid brain function, focus and energy levels. So, we thought, why not put these claims to the test with a (not very) scientific test?

Just Dance 2022 Review

Just Dance 2022 doesn’t change up the tried and tested formula of Just Dance too much but what it has added in terms of improved visuals has made for a more entertaining and immersive experience.

Just Dance 2021 Review

With no properly new features, just new songs, Just Dance 2021 doesn’t come across as a completely new game - just an expansion pack to the previous one. Saying that, the new songs do show a better range of genres than the previous couple of titles and the free month of Just Dance Unlimited means that there is something to get everyone dancing over the festive season.

The final showdown found in Life is Strange 2 is what we have all been waiting for, and it does not disappoint.

Stranded Sails – Explorers of the Cursed Islands Review

Stranded Sails – Explorers of the Cursed Islands on Xbox One is probably the best pirate-themed exploration game which has some farming and crafting in it. But then again, it doesn’t exactly have much competition.

If you are after a party game for the holiday season and beyond, or just like singing in your spare time to amuse yourself, then Let’s Sing 2020 on Xbox One is a great choice.

Just Dance 2020 Review

The release of Just Dance 2020 celebrates 10 years of the world’s number 1 music videogame franchise. The developers of the game, Ubisoft, promise that this edition is ‘more than Just Dance’, so hopes are high for some exciting brand new features to freshen up their tried and tested formula.

Eastshade Review

Eastshade is a first-person, open-world exploration game. It’s atmospheric, immersive, relaxing and just the right side of challenging.

Life is Strange 2 Episode 4 – Faith Review

With Episode 3 in the Life is Strange 2 saga ending on such an exciting cliffhanger it was always going to be interesting to see what happens to the Diaz brothers in this next, and penultimate episode; would the story continue on such an interesting trajectory or dip again into the lows of previous episodes?

Life is Strange 2 Episode 3 – Wastelands Review

Episode 3 of Life is Strange 2 brings us to over halfway through Sean and Daniel Diaz’s journey from Seattle to their new life in Mexico. We rejoin the brothers who are now camping in the Redwood Forests of California as part of a community of drifters and runaways.

My Time At Portia Review

Take a dash of Animal Crossing or Harvest Moon, a pinch of The Sims, a glug of Farm Together and a smidge of Zelda. Stir with an anime spoon. This is the recipe for My Time at Portia, a new life sim RPG from Pathea Games and Team17. But is the end-result more yummy or crummy?

Glass Masquerade Review

We all love the satisfaction of finding where that last jigsaw puzzle piece goes, watching it slot neatly into place. But, did you know that this encourages the production of the chemical dopamine in the brain, which is a mood enhancer? This is one reason why completing a puzzle helps to release stress and tension. If you are feeling the pressure of modern life then you might like to try tuning out by playing Glass Masquerade on Xbox One.

Life is Strange 2 Episode 2 Review

Episode 2 of Dontnod Entertainment’s latest story-based game opens on a picturesque snowy scene in early December where the two protagonists, Sean and Daniel Diaz, are exploring Daniel’s new found power - telekinesis.
