Mordhau Review – A Skull Smashing Good Time

Ah, the medieval times. Let’s be honest; they were a bit crap to live in. But that didn’t stop us romanticizing the whole thing and dreaming about being heroic knights smacking people around with swords. Mordhau knows that we like knights and swords and hammers, and it also knows that we love violence and blood and skulls being smashed. So Mordhau lets us play as knights and decapitate each other. Thanks Mordhau. You’re a good friend.

Draugen Review – Draugen On?

The inherent problem with a game like Draugen is that you can’t talk about it. That makes reviewing somewhat tricky. You see, dear reader, Draugen is one of them there fancy pants walking simulators, all artistic and such like. The story of Druagen is the game, but I can’t talk about the story in detail without ruining the game. You see the problem?

*Downs a shot of whiskey* But I got this. I got it. Right. Here we go.

Devil May Cry 5 Review – Back And Better Than Ever

11-years have passed since the last true Devil May Cry game was launched. In the span of time since 2008 we got a reboot of the franchise in the form of the oddly named DmC: Devil May Cry, a game that I actually quite liked but that did not go down well with fans. Finally, though, we have a true sequel in the form of Devil May Cry 5. Nero and Dante are back and ready to kick some demonic buttocks. It’s time to welcome back Devil May Cry and watch as it retakes its throne.

Random Loot: Going Back To The Division

I won’t try to lie and claim that Ubisoft’s The Division left me feeling impressed when it first launched. There were some good ideas and man was it beautiful from a visual perspective, but it was ultimately a hollow experience. Still, with The Division 2 coming in a few months and lots of people saying The Division is far better than it was at launch I fired The Division back up.

Spinnortality Review – I have No Idea What Spinnortality Means

These days there are very valid fears surrounding massive corporations, the power that they wield and how much of the world they already control. Their influence is often terrifying, especially when you begin to research how only a few corporations own the vast majority of the media we consume. The point is, Spinnortality plays on problems in an entertaining strategy game about making money, pushing around governments and directing Earth toward the future you want. Oh, and you can build a giant laser on the moon.

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 Review – Awesome

Once again it’s time to go back to the eternally dark Warhammer universe where friendly hand shakes are a myth and even the baby sitters wear spiky armour and wield lethal weapons. The first Battlefleet Gothic: Armada proved to be a surprise, offering up some brilliant spaceship battling. Considering that the Warhammer licence gets handed out like free candy these days it was even nicer to be gifted a game about massive spaceships clashing. Now, though, we have Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2, the sequel that offers more ships, more factions and more awesomeness.

Conan Exiles Review – Is This What Is Best In Life?

Watching the survival genre explode in popularity has been weirdly fascinating, a bit like watching a building being demolished; exciting, cool, and then everything gets a bit hard to see before it’s left as a crumbling heap. Okay, maybe that’s a terrible analogy, but I can’t help feel that survival games are something of a trend that’s on the rise but due a collapse relatively soon. I think that’s mostly because as a whole survival games aren’t very good games. I mean, I’ve had a lot of fun in Rust, but as an actual videogame it’s a bit naff, doesn’t have much to do in it and largely relies on its player interactions.

Omensight Review – Worth The Time

I was just idly sitting around, browsing through games when I came across Omensight. It’s a relatively quiet period for games at the moment, so I decided to fire across a code request despite knowing nothing about the game. Boy, am I glad I did. Omensight turned out to be more than worth my time, and hopefully at the end of this review you might just think it’s worth your time, too.
