F1 2017 Review

If there’s ever a racing game you can count on to release an iteration year after year, its the F1 titles. Developer Codemasters have created the most accurate F1 title to date with F1 2017, keeping you immersed and in line with the speedy sport. But is this absolutely necessary? This title is filled with modes with so much content, that it takes a few moments to decide where to start. And we’re not talking about the grid line-up here. No, there’s an expansive career mode with what some might call ‘RPG elements’ with skill trees and levelling up. That’s … Read More »

The Eternity Forge, and the Guardians themselves have reached the top of the galaxy’s most … Read More »

Pillars Of Eternity Review

Pillars of Eternity is a game that is a bit of a culture shock when you first start to play it. Being a port of a PC game, it is something a little different from what we are used to as far as RPG’s go on consoles. The games that we seem to use as a benchmark for the genre are the Elder Scrolls and Witchers of the world. Pillars of Eternity is nothing like these games and it is all the better for it. The character creation mechanism in the game is deep and involving, so much so that … Read More »
