Cardpocalypse is brought to you by Irish developer Gambrinous and publisher Versus Evil. However, the setting is resolutely elementary school America despite the Gaelic connection. You’ll be reminded initially of Parker and Stone’s marionette farce Team America in the absurdly catchy theme tune. Bombastic and stylistically similar it’s only a […]

Cardpocalypse – PS4 Review


Neverwinter Nights is rightly lauded as a classic role-playing game and, until now, it’s never graced home consoles. Sometimes these PC efforts can find it hard to transition to a controller and the added obstacle of time itself can make these port sink, rather than swim. With Beamdog at the […]

Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition – PS4 Review


After eighteen years the saga can continue – Shenmue III is here. I played both Shenmue and Shenmue II all those years ago and, having waited over half my life for a sequel, I backed the Kickstarter. Now you might think that this review is a little late to the […]

Shenmue III – PS4 Review



Before we get started, I feel that it is best to preface this review with a confession of sorts. While I am a lover of music, this being a passion that is second only to gaming, I must admit that my tastes have often leaned towards the nostalgic, with very […]

Avicii Invector – PS4 Review


Foxyland is the latest and greatest from Ratalaika Games. OK, that’s maybe pushing it a little bit  but it’s a return to what certain sections of their audience expect. The developer is Bug-Studio, who have previous form in recent run and gunner Deep Space Rush. Foxyland is a fun enough […]

Foxyland – PS4 Review


While Beat Saber continues to enjoy its considerable  success Harmonix, the granddaddies of the modern rhythm action genre, have put out Audica which shares a fair bit of a DNA with its lightsaber inspired peer but comes at it from a more hardcore aspect.  What does that all mean?  Well, […]

Audica – PSVR Review



From Kaigan Games by way of Wales Interactive comes Simulacra. Originally released a couple of years ago as an iOS game, Simulacra is a faithful port even down to how it is presented on PS4, though it’s not exactly pushing the envelope presentation-wise. Your view into the game world is […]

Simulacra – PS4 Review


I feel like sniping’s one of the coolest things you can do in a shooter. It will always look precise, patient and require great timing. It’s funny how I’ve tended to avoid games that revolve entirely around it. Along comes GI Games’ Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts to break me in […]

Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts – PS4 Review


Much like with Aliens, Predator and Robocop, the Terminator franchise is one that I love dearly. Each of the above have one common theme however and that is that beyond the first sequel, things they all begin a death spiral, culminating in such contrivances as Robocop 3, Alien Covenant and […]

Terminator: Resistance – PS4 Review



While EA’s Star Wars: Battlefront titles have kept sociable gamers relatively happy this generation, we’ve all been crying out for a decent single player Star Wars game for years now.  The recent re-release of Jedi Outcast reminded us of how much fun it was to run around a virtual world with a lightsaber, […]

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order – PS4 Review


From Romanian indie developer Breadcrumbs  by way of publisher Versus Evil, comes action RPG Yaga. Having the publisher of the Banner Saga games onboard has definitely helped in terms of the additional polish with a fully voiced complement of varied NPCs as well as a sumptuous art style. Yaga is […]

Yaga – PS4 Review


Narcos: Rise of the Cartels is an XCOM style, turn based strategy game on PS4. It’s based on the Netflix series Narcos and lets you play as either the DEA trying to stop the drug lords or the Narcos trying to run your business. I’ve only watched one episode of […]
