24: E3 2019 and Other Numbers

Seems that E3 thing came round again, so we thought we'd better tell you our picks of the games shown there. Join deKay, Niaz, Kendrick and Choobs as they completely ignore half the titles on display this year, and get excited about games we may … [Continue reading]

Q.U.B.E.: Director’s Cut (PS4): COMPLETED!

I’d read in a lot of places, and the screenshots didn’t help, that Q.U.B.E. was a poor man’s Portal. Aside from the first person view and the clinical environments, it really isn’t. Mainly because there aren’t any … [Continue reading]

Golden Axe III (Switch): COMPLETED!

Is Golden Axe III going to be a good game, given the previous two were not? Go on, have a guess. At least it tried. Instead of being almost exactly the same as the other games, the graphics are all new, the animation is new, and most of the baddies … [Continue reading]

Assassin’s Creed Origins (PS4): COMPLETED!

Sparkle 2, or “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Zuma” was a free PS+ rental that I’ve been playing off and on for a few months. It’s not taxing, it’s not hard, but it is fun in the same way Zuma was. It’s just … [Continue reading]

The Way Remastered (Switch): COMPLETED

I’m not sure what exactly is “remastered” about this game, having no experience of the original. An original which is only a few years old itself, actually. I’m also not sure what sort of game it’s trying to be. To … [Continue reading]

Gato Roboto (Switch): COMPLETED!

Imagine if Downwell’s graphics were applied to Super Metroid, only you were a cat? That’s Gato Roboto. How could I not buy it then complete it in one afternoon given that description? Turns out it’s really very good too. … [Continue reading]
