    • Wot I Think: Dragon Age – Inquisition

      By Adam Smith on November 17th, 2014 at 2:00 pm. Dragon Age: Inquisition might just be my favourite game released this year. Considering my expectations and relationship with recent BioWare games, that’s about as likely as Saturday night’s soggy kebab being my favourite meal of the year. I’ve spent almost sixty hours uncovering as much of Inquisition’s enormous open world an ...

    • Wot I Think – Assassin’s Creed Unity

      By Alec Meer on November 14th, 2014 at 3:00 pm. Assassin’s Creed Unity is the latest in Ubisoft’s series of historical-set open world action-adventure games. It stars a French nobleman named Arno Dorian, who becomes an Assassin (stealthy free-running dude battling against an evil conspiracy theory) in 18th century Paris, around the time of the French revolution.

    • Wot I Think – Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare Singleplayer

      By Graham Smith on November 5th, 2014 at 7:00 pm. The Call of Duty games are often best understood not as first-person shooters in the lineage of Half-Life 2 and Halo, but as extensions of light-gun rail shooters. They’re games set in strictly scripted corridors, with one button to pop in and out of cover, one to shoot, and another to reload.

    … Bon Appetit, Club Tiny members ⊟ I’ve been working on a review of Senran Kagura: Bon Appetit for a while, but never quite got it into a 100% complete state for whatever reason. So I decided to make it a Club Tiny exclusive, to add value to the review through exclusivity, rather than rewrite it to death. Capsule review for everyone: I like…

  • Super Smash Bros. Wii U: The Kotaku Review

    …—but eventually, I was so bummed that I just dropped it. My hope was that the console version would be better. We already ran a review on the 3DS version where Jason Schreier said, yes, you should play it. Let's get this out of the way: yes, you absolutely should play the Wii U version of Smash. To give you an idea of how much I mean this: I have booked…

  • Alienware Alpha Review: Close, But No Game Console

    … The Alienware Alpha sounds awesome. It's smaller and more powerful than the PS4 and Xbox One. It doubles as an actual Windows PC! But be warned: it's not as easy to use as a game console, not as foolproof. It's not nearly the slam dunk I was hoping it would be. What Is It? Probably the smallest gaming PC you've ever seen. A black box just under…

  • PN Review: Chat-A-Lot

    Chat-A-Lot is a new 3DS application designed to connect you with those on your friend list. This program has many serious issues though. Your initial (and fair) question might be ‘What does this offer that can’t be found elsewhere for cheaper, or even free?” More importantly though, ask “Does this program function well”? The answer is no, it does not.

  • Wot I Think: A Bird Story

    … By John Walker on November 24th, 2014 at 3:00 pm. Freedbird’s To The Moon is one of my favourite games. A beautiful, moving and intricate tale of memory and loss, it has made people weep in their thousands. This second game from Kan Gao, A Bird Story, is not a sequel, but apparently tangentially related. After a three year wait, I was pretty…

  • Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 Review

    … Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 Review In Pro Evo 2015 Konami has presented a game that reignites the rivalry between Pro Evo and FIFA, with this title's gameplay engine being enough to notch a tight victory for the Pro Evo franchise Before the last gen, that is when PS2 was the King of consoles, there was a debate as old as gaming itself…

  • Halo: The Master Chief Collection (Xbox One) - Review

    …, these are unlikely to be games that will appeal to you. By far the most impressive improvement made to the games in The Master Chief Collection is the jump to 60 frames per second. The graphical hike up to 1080p (on all games except Halo 2 Anniversary's campaign, which runs at 1328x1080) is certainly not to be sniffed at, but the impact a higher…

  • Arcana Heart 3: LOVE MAX!!!!! Review – An Old Flame

    … underappreciated and overlooked by the modern 1080p all-action game junkies. Unlike like the BlazBlue series which has adopted HD sprites, LOVE MAX features typically pixelated pugilists, which may be off putting for some. The game runs in a 4:3 display and, while certainly not the norm, it doesn’t hamper the presentation style and allows the game…

  • Far Cry 4 – Review (PS4, Xbox One, PC)

    … There’s no denying that Far Cry 3 was one of the great games of the last generation of consoles and Ubisoft absolutely nailed the feeling of open world, crazy adventuring, coupled with a strong and well driven narrative. Hell even the psycho was, well, a believable psycho. The amount of things that could be achieved, as crazy as the seemed, were…

  • REVIEW: Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2

    … Umbra Witches, Luman Sages, Heaven, Hell, Purgatory and sexual poses… Bayonetta has it all. I’ll be doing something a little different with this review, because I played Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2 at the same time, back to back from one another, I’m gonna do a joint review and review them both at once… Let’s get started after the break…

  • Wot I Think: CS GO – Operation Vanguard

    … for players who didn’t pay. What I hate is that Operation Vanguard shows a clear path for the future of CS: GO and that is, along with the recently-introduced ‘music packs,’ a mercenary attitude towards its growing and dedicated playerbase. Like everyone else I’m a hypocrite, of course, so I’ll keep on playing and I’ll probably spend more money…

  • Wot I Think: Space Hulk Ascension

    … is that I’m reluctant to recommend Space Hulk Ascension, despite the hugely improved campaign structure and increased variety. There’s a good game hidden in the grimdark corridors, and it’s best qualities aren’t just borrowings from Games Workshop, but Ascension has taken two steps forward and one step back. And, as in the game, the backwards step is twice as costly. Space Hulk Ascension is available now. …

  • The Evil Within Review – Sick Thrills

    … with Resident Evil 4 and one of the most talented video game developers in the world. And it shows. Created by Mikami’s own company, Tango Softworks, and published by Bethesda, The Evil Within is essentially the gloriously twisted love child of Resident Evil and Silent Hill, taking the twisted monster design of the former and the psychological intrigue…

  • The Flare Path: Learns To Stop Worrying And Love BOMB

    … By Tim Stone on November 21st, 2014 at 1:00 pm. It has come to my attention that some Flareopaths are not obeying all 1405 tenets of The Flare Path Pledge. I have it on good authority that last Saturday a reader from Leeds watched The Battle of Britain from beginning to end without wincing slightly every time an Me 109-impersonating HA-1112-M1L…

  • Bayonetta 2 (WiiU) - Review

    … predecessor. Bayonetta still uses a combination of punches and kicks to juggle enemies, and can use the guns both in her hands and on her feet to attack enemies from afar. Dodge just before an enemy’s attack, and the game goes into a slow-motion “witch time” where Bayonetta can further unleash a flurry of strikes on her foes. Bayonetta 2’s gameplay…
