[FEATURE] High Scare Reviews – Paul’s Story

Someone's Upset
on Fri, Oct 24, 2014 | By Paul Balaji

I’ll admit, I’m a bit of a wimp. I’m scared quite easily by things in most games, to the point of putting off playing BioShock for over a year. When I did play, it was a great experience – but not one I’d like to indulge in again. No matter how creepy the splicers in that game are, my story takes place in BioShock: Infinite. Unlike the original,...

  I’ve played my fair share of first person shooters in the past, Call of Duty and Battlefield games being the ones that spring to mind. A certain first person shooter from developer Splash Damage, stands out also but for all the wrong reasons, and that game is called Brink. First of all, Brink was a game upon it’s reveal four years ago that had me super excited....

It’s been almost a decade since we were treated to the highly regarded ‘Resident Evil 4’. Hailed by many as one of the best survival horror games ever made, Shinji Mikami had outdone himself with the fourth installment as he previously created the first ‘Resident Evil’ game and ‘Dino Crisis’ and changed the way we look at horror games . Now we have ‘The...

It’s definitely colder outside. There’s an unmistakable chill in the air. It can only mean one thing – winter is coming. And just like in Game Of Thrones winter is a potentially disastrous time of year. Its cold, its wet and its expensive. With winter comes Christmas, and with Christmas comes a plethora of planning and an outpouring of food and alcohol that...

*CONTAINS MAJOR SPOILERS* When most of us talk about horror games, our minds tend to gravitate towards the gore and the ghostly scares that gamers have been used to over the years. While these games are great for what they are, gamers have gotten older; and as the consoles have went from standard definition to high the games had to mature as well. One of the reasons I feel...

[REVIEW] In Space We Brawl

on Thu, Oct 16, 2014 | By Ryan Oehrli

With 2014 being such a slow year for gaming, many of the best titles have been indies.  As we continue to move through October – the turning point for AAA developers – games like Shadow of Mordor and the latest Smash Bros. are stealing the stage back, but is there at least one more indie worth playing in 2014? In Space We Brawl is something along the lines of...

Every Week we let our Editors sound off on the worst games they’ve ever played   Generally speaking I’ve played a lot of good games due to the fact that console games aren’t exactly the cheapest, that it’s hard to warrant spending £40-50 on a risky purchase. I’ve played some games that I felt weren’t very good (but many thought they were) like Mass Effect...

BEWARE OF SPOILERS! Now this is a premiere that people will be talking about for a long time. The Walking Dead has been known for being slow at times but this episode went in the complete opposite direction. If you are a fan of the show what was not to like? Not only was there a plethora of action featuring decaying walkers and a cannibalistic society but we were also given...

During New York Comic Con Travellers Tales revealed a host of new characters for LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham. The LEGO games are well known for their extensive roster and it seems like LEGO Batman 3 will be no different as Conan O’Brien – you red that correctly- Stephen Amell as the ‘Arrow’ and comic book fanatic Kevin Smith are now joining the roster....

[TV REVIEW] Arrow: Season 3 Premiere

on Sat, Oct 11, 2014 | By Zack Thiele

Arrow ended last season on a cliffhanger of just having had a second terrorist attack and Arrow finally defeating Deathstroke. This season takes place a few months later and shows Arrow teaming up with Roy (Red Arrow) in a dynamic action scene that kicks off the episode nicely. We get to see a bit of how they work as a team and some of the new gadgets that Ollie uses are clever...

Having traveled to London for an exclusive chat with Dying Light’s Lead Game Designer, Maciej Binkowski, we were treated to the opportunity to find out more about the anticipated zombie survival game. After spending some time playing Techland’s spiritual successor to the flawed-but-fun Dead Island, one of the main questions that had us scratching our heads...

[FEATURE] High Scare Reviews – Rob’s Story

on Fri, Oct 10, 2014 | By Rob Volker

As Halloween draws closer I find myself drawn towards a genre of games that I rarely can tolerate to play. Horror games. I will be the first to admit that I am a wimp when it comes to anything in the slightest terrifying, and therefore I only ever touch games of this genre during the Halloween season. However despite this, there is one game that I always come back to. Left...

[TV REVIEW] The Flash: Pilot

on Fri, Oct 10, 2014 | By Zack Thiele

The Flash is one of my favorite comic book characters and has seen his share of representations throughout the years. Though he may not be the most known superhero he’s an archetype that is copied often in other types of medium involving super-powered individuals. The Flash first was seen in homes back in the early nineties with the primetime show featuring Josh Wesley Shipp....
