Late Abyss Odyssey Review

A game that only takes a few hours to complete, running through procedurally generated, repetitive dungeons, going further into the abyss to find the Warlock, who’s nightmares plague the inhabitants above. In other words, a really boring experience and a waste of time.

Late BlazeRush Review

If anyone can remember the classic Micro Machines racing games for the Sega Megadrive, in which you would race from a top down perspective, knocking your opponents off the track, then BlazeRush is a modern equivalent minus the miniature toy theme.

Late Super Motherload Review

This maybe seen as some sort of clone to SteamWorld Dig (which there seems to be a cult following of), but with the inclusion of 4 player co-op and a vehicle that flies, it’s quite a fun indie take on digging through Mars’ crusts to uncover the mystery of the red planet.

Late X-Men Origins: Wolverine Review

It had originally been ages since I had watched the X-Men Origins: Wolverine film, but as I had just watched the new Logan movie teary eyed, I fancied playing this game next from my back log of PS3 games. Dust off your PS3, this is a must play!

Late Nier Review

At first, I had a lot to say about this game, mostly positive remarks. I was initially impressed by how it played and the direction of the story, but after numerous playthroughs thanks to multiple endings, I’m resigned to saying that the game feels half-finished.

Late Call Of Juarez: Bound In Blood Review

I wasn’t sure what to expect. I had momentarily played a Juarez game previously, resembling an arcade shoot-em up with cardboard cutouts, but having seen true 3D models in the screenshots, I was intrigued. So it was a nice surprise to find myself on the frontlines of the American Civil war.

Thoughts on Pros and ‘X’ons

So the Xbox One X has just been dropped, and I thought it was time I gave my 2 cents on the new iteration of consoles, though I’ve had zero usage of them, so everything is based on theory.
It’s an interesting time we live in. Previously when a new iteration of a console was released, it had usually just been a smaller version requiring less power, essentially making it more streamlined, such as the PSone, PS2 Slim, PS3 Slim, PS3 Super Slim, Xbox 360S, etc. Now, console developers are giving gamers a much more powerful option during the midpoint of this generation’s lifetime.

Late Truck Racer Review

I’m still on with getting through my PS3 backlog, and having caught the racing bug, decided to give Truck Racer a go. This is a fantastic rally racing game, including trucks that just want to swing their ass out at every corner.

Late Monster Jam Battlegrounds Review

So I had a new third-party controller to try out after having to repair it when it arrived in the post this morning. I also have a massive PlayStation Plus backlog of games to get through, so today was a good day to start (and complete) Monster Jam Battlegrounds.
