Late Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor Review

So we take the lore of Lord of the Rings, we add a brilliant new storyline, we then drop Batman Arkham combat system into the game and just for good measure, create the Game of the Year edition with all the DLC and goodness and sell for practically pennies to gamers. Yes, please!

PC vs Consoles: Part 2

We all know that PCs are more powerful than consoles but the key word here is optimisation. Optimisation is the process of checking and altering a game to ensure it runs on a certain platform as expected. This costs the developers and publishers a good chunk of their budget by having to run test after test ensuring each stage of the developed game works on different hardware, and its easier to optimise for two consoles, the Xbox One and the PS4 than rather a million combinations of components. If games were only ever created and optimised for consoles, it would quite frankly save developers time and money, hopefully invested back into making the game even better.

Late Poker Night 2 Review

This is where it all began, my plunge into the murky depths of addictive gambling. I lost everything, I should really be ashamed of myself, knocking back shots in a smoky room with the lads, but I regret nothing. The companionship the game offered was worth it, and I would do it all over again.

PC or Console: Which is best for gaming?

Having played consoles all my life, I made the transition from the Xbox 360 to becoming a serious PC gamer over 3 years ago, having spent about £1700 in total on the original pc and on upgrades since. Over those 3 years, I can confidently say at my own expense, amongst all the butt hurt this may get from the PC community, that I have not once received a return on investment and it’s only been a world of problems.

Late Trine 3 Review

I have to say I’m very glad that I did not purchase this game at full price. Considering how quickly the game can be fully completed, this should have been given away as a free demo rather than sold as a fully fledged game.

Late Enslaved: Odyssey to the West Review

Wow. What a rollercoaster ride this has been for my emotions. Set 150 years in the future, most of humanity has been wiped out after a global war, yet the remnants of society and war remain, including homicidal robots.

Late… Early Fallout 4 Review

I pre-ordered the Pip Boy edition of this game, having been so impressed with Fallout New Vegas. November came, my package arrived, I opened the box, a choir sung as I equipped the Pip Boy, installed the game on my space scrutinizing SSD, then didn’t bother to play until late January.

Late The Wolf Among Us Review

Have you ever heard of the BIG BAD WOLF, because you certainly haven’t heard about this one. Prepare to be shocked and moved by another Telltale classic as this adult fairy tale drags you kicking and screaming through the filth and dirt of this not so happily ever graphic novel adaption.

Late Far Cry 4 Review

I want to stress right now, this is basically just a 40+ hour DLC for Far Cry 3. Not much in way of story, essentially it’s just the same old kill wave after wave of enemies whilst protecting incompetent villagers and capturing bases using any sniper rifle means possible.
