Empyrion – Galactic Survival

According to the description, Empyrion is a 3D open world, a space survival adventure in which you can fly across space and land on planets; build, explore, and fight in a hostile galaxy. What they don’t tell you is at the beginning there is a lot more non-survival than survival. The story goes like this: E...

WipEout: Omega Collection

To be honest, I came into this as a Wipeout newb. But everyone I brought in to experience this with me seemed to say, “Oh yeah, I know this game.” So WipEout was a significant addition to the PlayStation line-up in 1995. With its anti-gravity races (slightly akin to podracing in Star Wars) and h...

PlayerUnknown’s BattleGrounds

PUBG, as it is known to many (variously rendered, but I call it “pub-g”), is an MMO battle royale style game. The goal is to be the last player/duo/squad to survive being killed by other players, or an ever-decreasing circle of murderous electricity (we call it “the blue”, or “the blue circle”). It is other...

LocoRoco Remastered

In eye-bleeding colours and unrelenting song that will either have you really annoyed or singing along, LocoRoco Remastered is now on PS4! So what is a “LocoRoco”? It’s a round jelly-like creature that has the ability to roll, jump and split or merge itself. Apparently it also really cares...

PaRappa the Rapper Remastered

Many years ago, a little 2D dog burst on to the PlayStation scene bringing one of the earliest games of the music and rhythm genre. It featured addictive songs and funky characters including a flower, a chicken and an onion. I remembered PaRappa the Rapper to be one of the most-played games in a party setti...

Styx: Shards of Darkness

When it comes to a stealth game, Cyanide Studios has put together a combination of elements that from the get-go feels surprisingly intuitive and believable. In this follow-up from the first Styx game you play a smart-mouthed goblin assassin who has a few tricks up his sleeve when it comes to getting what h...

5 Things for Gamers that aren’t Games

You’re probably wondering why you’d spend your free time doing anything else other than gaming. Okay, even if your Steam library is already full of games that you purchased for $3 and never played, here are some daring new ventures that may have you putting that controller aside for just that bi...

Orwell

How much can you know about a person from their social media posts? What about their phone calls and their bank records? Can you tell if someone has a violent personality? Can you tell if they’re a killer? These are the kind of questions developer Osmotic Studios makes you think about while playing their dy...

Rocketbirds 2: Evolution

Despite innuendos in the trailer about male chickens and how much harder they could be the second time around, I was relieved to find that Rocketbirds 2 followed the similar innocent style that I’d enjoyed in Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken. Rocketbirds 2 is a return to the classic side-scrolling plat...

The Last Guardian

You’re a young boy. You go to your bed and fall asleep, probably have a bit of a bad dream and then you stir. But the familiar roof you’re used to waking up to is no longer there. Instead, it’s the shadowy ceiling of a cave. What is this place? Where the heck are you? You hear some ragged breathing beside y...

Pokémon Sun & Moon

I am incapable of rushing through Pokémon games. I have been playing for almost a week and I’m only on the second island. I really do have to ‘catch em all’ no matter how long it takes or how low the % chance of the specific Pokémon showing up in the area is! Which is why it’s also e...

Watch Dogs 2

I’ve been speeding down this stretch of road for some time now, grinning widely as I miss passing vehicles by a hair. The radio was blasting out of my awesome convertible as I came into an urban area and drifted around corners. It was around one of these corners that I smashed headlong into my first crash. ...
