WWE have been quite inconsiderate to WWE 2K and the release of 2K17. A few months before release, WWE Creative selfishly decided to conduct a brand split, separating the roster between RAW and SmackDown, and updating the graphics for both programs. WWE 2K17 was already releasing out of date, and whilst that’s common for these games, it’s arguably more apparent here. From smaller things like Alberto Del Rio still being on the roster despite walking out of the company, yet Austin Aries, The Greatest Man That Ever Lived, has to sit this year out, to bigger things like The Authority … Read More »

When you think of Astro you think quality, you think expensive, and of course, you get what you pay for in every sense. The wired A40 and wireless A50 headsets have been around in some form for years, and they remain highly regarded for team-based competitive gaming. They’re also very pricey compared to nearly every other gaming headset on the market. The latest version of the Astro A40, the A40 TR + MixAmp Pro TR, is a wired headset with a separate amp/mixer and an RRP of £200 price tag. The Astro A40s are the epitome of quality, comfort, and style. Even … Read More »

It’s nice when we can all get along, sit around, chatting, drinking tea. Unfortunately, this isn’t always possible, especially not when some of those pesky aliens get involved. All they want to do is destroy your work and eat your scientists. This is where Harry comes in, he is an exterminator with a very special set of skills. Generally, these skills involve firing upwards to squash any alien bugs that might come his way. The Bug Butcher is a 2D side scrolling shooter that sees you shooting upwards to kill the alien bugs that come from the ceiling to wreak … Read More »

The World Rally Championship series has always been one of the most popular rally games around (alongside Colin McRae Rally and Dirt) and Bigben Games has done their best to make this off road racer as challenging and realistic as possible. If you’ve lost touch with rally sims and racers over the last couple of years, it might take you a little while to get back into it. Right from the start WRC 6 FIA World Rally Championship sends you a tutorial – and don’t take this lightly. WRC 6 is a tricky and challenging game, and as the tutorial’s co driver doesn’t give … Read More »

You could tell me that Vermintide started life as a Left 4 Dead mod; I’d believe you. 4 survivors of an apocalypse fighting a horde-like enemy called the Skaven (zombies), dogged at every turn by unique monsters designed to pick you off one by one. You’ve got your Gutter Runner (hunter), Pack Master (smoker/jockey), Poison Wind Globadier (spitter/boomer), Stormvermin (armoured horde) and the Rat Ogre (tank). We’re a charger and a witch away from a full set. Warhammer: The End Times – Vermintide, to give it its full title, is a first person co-operative action game with an emphasis on … Read More »

We like to think that everyone likes a good puzzle game.  Something that makes you really think about what you are doing, and something that requires intelligent problem solving.  Manual Samuel, developed by Perfectly Paranormal, is a puzzle game that will make you laugh with its rude comical humour and force your hands to play its own bizarre form of Twister. Meet Samuel, a spoiled rich kid who has had everything handed to him and his every beck and call answered either by his dad or his many servants.  After a not so pleasant argument with his girlfriend, through his … Read More »

We’re only on our third mission when we realise we’re in trouble. Our dogged insistence on relying on the tactics that served us so well in 2012’s XCOM: Enemy Unknown / Enemy Within has led us to this place, and our beleaguered resistance fighters are unlikely to get out of this one alive. Farewell, brave pawns. Your time was all too brief. XCOM 2 – eschewing any other moniker for the first time in this laser-squad-inspired franchise’s 22 years – takes the 2012 reboot and improves upon it in every way. It’s tougher, more brutal, deeper, more involving, better looking and more … Read More »

We all have guilty pleasures in life, those little things that we all love a bit more than we should, but embrace it and love it. For me it is pinball, there’s just something about it that I can’t get enough of. So you can now guess that I turned into a giddy child when I was told to review the latest table pack for Pinball FX 2 by Zen Studios. The fact that the pack in question is the  Marvel’s Women Of Power pack just added to my sheer giddiness. So, does this latest addition follow the extremely high standard … Read More »

The idea of Castles is simple: You take control of an engineer who must gather materials and tools in order to build the tallest tower ever made. It’s essentially a puzzle game. There are many puzzle games in all forms surfacing on Xbox One, but one familiar facet is that of the match-3 games akin to Candy Crush. Instead of the traditional 2D gem-matching puzzle game, we are treated to a top-down view of a 3-Dimensional 5×5 grid, with a ‘walkway’ around the grid to manoeuvre your engineer. Blocks fall in seemingly random squares on the grid that consist of material (colour) and symbol … Read More »
