About half a decade ago, the concept of Fortnite was first revealed.  A fun way to survive a zombie style apocalypse while allowing the player to build a fortress to keep themselves safe.  With it's base building features and in depth character progression, this isn't just some tower defense game.  While it is still in it's early stages, Fortnite definitely appears to have legs for the marathon it intends to run over it's lifespan. Fortnite takes place in a world where a climatic event simply known as the storm has caused a zombie style takeover of over 90% of the ... Read More »
Telltale Games are at it again with the folks at Mojang to bring another season to Minecraft Story Mode. For those that are unaware, Minecraft Story Mode takes the Minecraft universe and creates a story of an everyday civilian that ends up becoming a hero named Jesse. Players are given the options to customize Jesse into a boy or girl and will make decisions through that will help shape what the story will evolve into. It's a typical style of Tell Tale Games and is done every bit as well here. Players returning from Season 1 will be able to ... Read More »
Speedrunners have been going for well over around two and a half decades, with players competing to complete games in the fastest possible time. We've certainly moved on from the early days of Doom mods and trials, but it's only in the past few years that scene has become as culturally accepted as it is now. You can thank the rise of YouTube and Twitch for that. Of course, this burgeoning community has presented an opportunity for game developers to market to the specific speedrunning audience. One such game is Deadcore, a first person platformer with a heavy emphasis on ... Read More »
For those looking to look back to traditional American wood paneled station wagons, porn style mustaches, and punishingly difficult puzzlers, look no further than Serial Cleaner. Developed by iFun4All, Serial Cleaner puts players in the shoes of a 1970's ear criminal that is hired by other deplorables to clean up murder scenes before the police are able to properly conduct their investigation of the crime. Feeling like Hotline Miami and offering some nostalgia of Metal Gear Solid, you are expected to avoid police, collect evidence, load dead bodies in your station wagon, and vacuum up blood (wonder if that actually ...

Tower defence-style games are as popular as they ever have been. Combining both base building and ability customizing, its a great form of action and strategy. Throw in some heavy RPG mechanics and you get Dungeon Defender II. Developed by Trendy Entertainment, Dungeon Defenders II is a free to play game that gives addicting gameplay, great character designs with deep customization, and lots of action in a social and interactive world. There is a lot of attention needed as there are still a bunch of gameplay hampering bugs making Dungeon Defender II a rare unpolished diamond. Dungeon Defenders II takes ... Read More »
Last December presented somewhat of a terrible experience for yours truly. I had to suffer the indignity of observing one of my favourite franchises commit figurative “bed-soiling”, resulting in a damaged legacy for the foreseeable future. I am referring, of course, to Dead Rising 4. For a game supposedly heading back to its roots, Dead Rising 4 was practically unrecognisable when compared to every other game in the series. Whilst that was good in some cases (DR 4 offered the best gameplay engine and combat of the whole series), something was missing. There was no charm, no soul; mowing down ... Read More »
Super Bomb Rush from Curvature Systems, LLC has arrived on Xbox One, but unfortunately for us here in the UK, it's currently only released in America...for now. We will have to wait and see if this title releases on our shores but for now, check out the review below. It's a loud, brash affair with retro stylings and loud dance music. The game presents users with a series of bombs that need to be defused before they explode - the player does this by entering a sequence using the D-pad that has to match the one displayed on screen. Simple ... Read More »
Waking up dazed and confused in an abandoned asylum is no one’s idea of fun. More so when the majority of your memory is erased with only the sole purpose of saving a girl left bouncing around your mind. But that’s exactly the position lead character Cole Black finds himself in Get Even, a psychological puzzle shooter from Polish studio The Farm 51, and published by Bandai Namco. The key focus of Get Even leans toward the notion of memory, and the ability to not only re-live your own harrowing experiences, but also that of those around you. It’s an ... Read More »
Kholat, developed by the Polish development team IMGN.PRO first launched on PC in 2015, and is now available for the first time on the Xbox One. The game is based on a real world event involving the unexplained deaths of 9 skiers in the Ural Mountains in 1959. Despite extensive investigations at the time, no concrete reason for their deaths was ever found. Their tent had been cut open from the inside out, and they'd fled sparsely dressed and barefoot into the wilderness. When their bodies were found, several of the victims had suffered internal injuries, but displayed no physical ... Read More »
