on Tue, Nov 24, 2015 | By Tom Lynch

In 2005 Star Wars: Battlefront 2 was released, a game which quickly went on to define my childhood. Every waking hour was spent pursuing TIE Fighters in galactic space battles or duelling atop the Mos Eisley coliseum as Luke Skywalker. Some of my fondest memories playing video games originated from Battlefront 2. Now, 10 years on that entranced nine year-old has returned to...

[FEATURE] Super Smash Bros. Cloud Strife Reveal Trailer Analysis

on Sun, Nov 15, 2015 | By Jason Hernandez

After a rather timid Nintendo Direct with a few highlights (Twilight Princess HD, Zelda Wii U confirmed for 2016, Mario Maker adds search function), the excitement seemed to be done. That’s when Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime decided to drop a trailer with impact equivalent to that of a nuclear blast. Cloud Strife, the main protagonist of Final Fantasy...

on Fri, Nov 13, 2015 | By Joseph Dodd

Did nuclear bombs drop? It seems a few of the team may have suffered the side effects of these radiation filled badboys. Joshua Lawrence My as well go ahead and write off the whole weekend to fallout 4. I’d like to say I’m going to have a social life this weekend but we all know that isn’t the case. Abishek Rowlands This weekend I’ll be picking up my...

[REVIEW] Rise of the Tomb Raider

on Mon, Nov 9, 2015 | By Bryan Dull

There is not a lot of time to relax in Rise of the Tomb Raider. When you find yourself in a village in Syria, trudging through the snow to get to your next checkpoint, drums start to beat very slowly. You may stop for a second to ask yourself what that beat was about. You continue onwards to only find that the drumbeat is getting faster each step that you take. It may be obvious...

on Sun, Nov 8, 2015 | By Joseph Dodd

Remember back in 2008 when Call of Duty: World at War hit the shelves? Were you one of those who decided that you’d take up the challenge of completing each campaign mission on the hard-as-nails veteran difficulty? If you answered yes then you may recall the frustration that came along with your hours spent inching through each mission. The numerous occasions where you nearly...

Rest and recuperation time is on the cards, what are some of the team up to?  Tom Lynch I know it’s a long shot but, I’m going to try and beat MGSV before a little game called Fallout 4 releases next week. A bold statement, but I can try at least. Tom acres I will also be blitzing through the latter stages of The Phantom Pain. The credits have rolled to mark the...

[FEATURE] IRL: Perk-A-Colas: The Honourable Mentions

on Thu, Nov 5, 2015 | By Joseph Dodd

We’ve already taken a look at the Perk-A-Colas we consider to be the ‘essential’ four that you should consider getting down you if you’re to stand a chance of surviving a zombie apocalypse. But there are of course many more Perk-A-Colas on offer and thus it’s time to focus on those that aren’t necessarily essential, yet would indeed come in handy if you have a cheeky...

You Should Play This: Fallout 3

on Tue, Nov 3, 2015 | By Joseph Dodd

Which studio is arguably the king of RPG’s? Was your answer Bethesda Studios, because it should have been. At least in my eyes the Maryland based studios are the behemoths in crafting unmatched open-world games. Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas and the Elder Scrolls games have captured the hearts and minds of millions of gamers across the globe and the countless hours they have...

[FEATURE] You Should Play This: Red Dead Redemption

on Thu, Oct 29, 2015 | By Tom Lynch

  What happens when you throw the open-world masters of Rockstar with $80 million dollars to play with and the spaghetti Western setting of 1911 together? A third-person open-world action adventure sprawling across the barren United State and Mexican frontiers in what is the best game to come out of Rockstar, Red Dead Redemption. Released in May 2010 as the spiritual...

[REVIEW] Guitar Hero Live

on Mon, Oct 26, 2015 | By Bryan Dull

It seems hard to believe that it has been five years since we have gotten a Guitar Hero game, but alas, here we are and Guitar Hero Live is trying to reinvent the wheel to give a fresh take on the genre. The real question is if this entry will be enough to keep Guitar Hero coming back again or if it’s too little too late? What makes this game so immersive isn’t necessarily...
