Rolling Gunner is a horizontally-scrolling bullet-hell shoot ’em up from Japanese developers Mebius.  Originally a 2018 Windows release, this version combines a port of the game along with its Overpower DLC that came out a year or so later.  It’s also out for the Switch and there are physical editions […]

Rolling Gunner + Overpower – PS4 Review

Cotton Fantasy is a shoot ’em up that is part of the celebrated Cotton series which is currently celebrating its 30th anniversary.  We’ve already seen a few ports of some of the other games with Cotton Reboot!, Panorama Cotton and various others all making it to PSN in the last year or so. This […]

Cotton Fantasy – PS4 Review

Endzone is a city building strategy game from German gamesmiths Gentlymad Studios.  It debuted as a PC game in 2021 but is now here as a complete package, scooping up a couple of DLCs, on the PS5. In this game you are tasked with the not insignificant task of restarting […]

Endzone: A World Apart – Survivor Edition – PS5 Review

Divination, stylised as //DIVINATION\\, opens with a warning that it depicts disturbing imagery and themes. What it should also have done was have opened with an apology for the remarkably brief experience on offer here. You see, our leisurely playthrough lasted all of twenty four minutes. Not twenty four hours. […]

Divination – PS5 Review

Wildcat Gun Machine is a twin-stick shooter and is the debut title from Australian coders Chunkybox Games.  The game uses an isometric viewpoint and cartoony art style (similar to Hades or Bastion) but has a direct, action-packed gameplay focus that honestly isn’t a million miles away from something like Doom.  Well, with a little imagination. […]

Wildcat Gun Machine – PS4 Review

This War of Mine has been around for a while but This War of Mine: Final Cut now arrives on PS5. Obviously it is mostly the same game as before but there’s been new content added and with current world events the scenarios hit different. For those who don’t know […]

This War of Mine: Final Cut – PS5 Review

Ever since self-publishing became a thing for the PS4, the floodgates have opened to all types of indie games. It has been a great source of content for sure, but of course because of this we are also seeing a ton of games which would have been hard stopped by […]

Retro Highway – PS5/PS4 Review

Sometimes, it’s worth not judging a game by screenshots. My first glimpse of The Serpent Rogue had me making assumptions about what kind of game it was going to be. As it turns out, this effort about crafting and discovery turned out a lot more mellow than I was expecting. […]

The Serpent Rogue – PS5 Review

Metal Tales: Overkill is a heavy metal themed twin-stick shooter with roguelite elements and it comes to us from Madrid-based coders/publishers Zerouno Games.  As the name suggests, this game puts the music front and centre, placing you (and some offline co-op buddies) as a guitarist looking to reclaim the world […]

Metal Tales: Overkill – PS4 Review

We’re rather fond of a Lego game here at PSC. Admittedly, that may have been due to our predilection for the completionist gotta do it all aspect and the associated trophy haul. We’ve reviewed a couple of them on PS4 and PS5, the most recent being Lego Star Wars: The […]

LEGO Builder’s Journey – PS5 Review

I don’t think I’ve seen a motorsport as unpredictable as MotoGP in the last couple of years. Even without the pandemic, Marc Márquez’s self-inflicted arm injury has led to a genuine power vacuum at the top of motorcycle racing. Combine this with Valentino Rossi’s retirement and you have a grid […]

MotoGP 22 – PS5 Review

It’s only natural for Rogue-likes to be difficult. The whole point of them is the repetition, with you understanding and getting better at the game. Or in the case of Rogue-lites unlocking more and more abilities as you try and fail, eventually tipping the odds in your favour, when combined […]
