Mafia 3
Posted 374 days ago by Naiboss

Oh dear, Mafia 3... I had such hopes for you.  Sadly I won't be uploading much of a review just yet as, while most of the Internet was complaining about the 30fps cap (and wondering why such a thing exists in 2016), some of us, including me, were unable to run the game at all! Sadly the 2K... read more.

No Man's Sky
Posted 431 days ago by Naiboss

It seems you can't release a game without some controversy these days, and No Man's Sky is no exception.  What with trademark disputes over their use of the word "Sky", suggested "superformula" patent infringement, the late clarification of the PC delayed release, leaked copies, massive... read more.

Doom
Posted 483 days ago by Naiboss

Like, I suspect, many others of my generation, the original Doom was a key moment in my gaming history.  I was working for Future Zone/Electronics Boutique when we received a box of the shareware disks to put on our shelves but it was already well known to me.  While it wasn't the game... read more.

Mad Max
Posted 736 days ago by Naiboss

Mad Max is an open world action adventure which, while it may be a rather saturated genre at the moment, is a perfect fit for the title. Your character, Max Rockatansky, has his iconic car taken from him and is left for dead (in fairly typical fashion) after a clash with Scabrous Scrotus, the... read more.

Delve Deeper
Posted 1341 days ago by Naiboss

Delve Deeper is a curious turn-based strategy game in which you work your way through a randomly arranged dungeon/mine looking for gold, gems and treasures.  As well as a selection of monsters you may stumble across, you'll also be racing against the clock and rival teams of dwarves (up to... read more.

Forza 5, First Impression
Posted 1347 days ago by KroFunk

I don't actually own Forza 5...or even an Xbox One for that matter, but I did get a couple of races in with a friend of mine @RagonKai and I thought I would share my first impressions. About the Game:It's a racing game...not much else to say, other than I suppose I should point out that it is... read more.

About the game:You play the role of Nilin, an Errorist prisoner held by a company called Memorize in Neo Paris (year 2084)...To cut a long story short, the company Memorize has a product called Sensen. The Sensen is in use by 99% of the population and allows people to upload, share and delete... read more.

Risk of Rain
Posted 1374 days ago by Naiboss

At first glance, it would be easy to dismiss Risk of Rain as a simple, retro, side-scrolling shooter.  This, however, would be a mistake. The secret to this action platformer with roguelike elements isn't the randomly generated levels, or the vast number of items you can pick up (although they... read more.

State of Decay Breakdown
Posted 1424 days ago by Naiboss

Have you ever played an update or DLC, only to realise that it contained some feature or mode that you never realised was missing from the original?  As confusing as that may sound, that's exactly how I felt an hour or so into State of Decay's first DLC, Breakdown.  Gone are the story... read more.

State of Decay (PC)
Posted 1426 days ago by Naiboss

Back in June I spent a LOT of time playing State of Decay, a zombie-survival open world XBLA title and loved it.  The blend of management, gathering and action was an amazing balance with a fair amount of replayability. This month saw the release of the PC (at last) and once again, I've found... read more.

Rerun - Red Dead Redemption
Posted 1500 days ago by Naiboss

There are so many games in my list of shame, it rare that I get the opportunity to return to a previous title and start again from the beginning.  Red Dead Redemption, however, is one of those titles that warranted at least a second play through. Released in May 2010, RDR casts you in the role... read more.

Need for Greed: Most Wanted
Posted 1528 days ago by Naiboss

Yet another title from my list of shame, the 'new' Need for Speed: Most Wanted.  As the second NFS title by Criterion Games (of Burnout fame) is quite a change from NFS: Hot Pursuit... and if you've played Burnout Paradise you might be forgiven for mistaking Most Wanted as a re-skinned remake.... read more.

Does whatever a Spidey should!
Posted 1543 days ago by Naiboss

Things have been a bit too quiet recently... there haven't been any game releases that have got me particularly excited and work (that nasty thing we do to pay the bills) has been way too hectic.  Fortunately a few days off, a bit of sunshine and a Steam sale have certainly improved matters... read more.

State of Decay
Posted 1587 days ago by Naiboss

Every now and then, I play something that catches me off guard. State of Decay, a zombie-survival open world XBLA title, is one of those games. Created by Undead Labs, a relatively small development house created by industry veteran, Jeff Strain, State of Decay hasn't really had any advertising or... read more.

Bioshocking

I am a broken man.  I completed Bioshock Infinite last night and I woke up this morning still thinking about the ending.  Don't worry, I have no plans to spoil anything for anyone, no matter how much I'd like to talk about it.  Needless to say, the team at Irrational Games have... read more.

Game Dev Story
Posted 1661 days ago by Naiboss

I was given a choice by @Naiboss to either play this game or be on the receiving end of a poke in the eye. Despite the fact that wearing glasses makes me fairly eye poke proof, I assumed there must be a reason for him to be so persuasive on the subject.  So keep reading to see what I... read more.

I'm a huge fan of Counter-Strike... I've been playing it for as long as I remember and, alongside the original Unreal Tournament, it defined my love of FPS games. Over the years, Valve have played around the with the formula that made Counter-Strike so popular.  The changes haven't always been... read more.

Raider of the Lost Art
Posted 1674 days ago by Naiboss

The new Tomb Raider is an interesting game... but I feel that in order to do it true justice, I need to review it as two separate games. The first game is quick and easy to deal with... it is a painful mess of quick-time events (QTE) and forced linear missions.  There is no freedom... read more.

Bleach: Soul Resurreccion
Posted 1689 days ago by Naiboss

When I saw this game was within my reach I thought I would have to go for it. I have played a few Bleach games before and generally they have come up short in most areas. I think this was mainly because they have been straight up fighting games, there are loads of these already and they can get... read more.

Dead Space 3
Posted 1706 days ago by Naiboss

I am not a fan of horror, in fact I have been quoted saying that I find it rather unpleasant as a genre, but I have always put on a brave face when it comes to Dead Space. When I heard that Visceral Games had a 3rd game on the way I was excited to see what they were going to do with the story.... read more.

Assassin's Creed 3
Posted 1726 days ago by Naiboss

First things first... I love Assassin's Creed 3, I really do.  I'd almost go as far as to say it's one of my favourite games in the Assassin's Creed series.  While it may seem unusual to put the conclusion in the opening paragraph of a review, I wanted to make sure the message was... read more.

Assassin's Creed Revelations
Posted 1833 days ago by Naiboss

It's been a little while since I've played Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, so the frustration of some of the mechnics (like the crossbow wielding guards on horseback) is almost a distant memory... and it seems like Ubisoft, for the most part, would like it to stay that way. Assassin's Creed... read more.

Posted 1850 days ago by Naiboss

Ever since Double Fine dragged Kickstarter into the spotlight, there have been a steady stream of game developers, old and new, looking to crowd sourcing as a way to fund their niche projects.  So far this has proved pretty successful for a number of developers (I've certainly been... read more.

Posted 1908 days ago by Naiboss

Given the rather heated public debate over the endings in Mass Effect 3, I wanted to make sure that I'd played through the entire game before I posted anything about it.  Some 68 hours later (including a fair amount of multi-player), I've come to understand why players haven't been happy...... read more.

Max Payne, possibly the unluckiest man to ever walk the earth (in virtual form, at least) makes a return after nine years... but is he still the same man and is he still up to the job? For reasons unclear at the start of the game, Max is now in São Paulo, Brazil, working as private security... read more.

If you've never played The Witcher 1 or 2, allow me to give you a little bit of background...

Dismal Waters
Posted 1990 days ago by Naiboss

The original Risen was a fairly gritty, but actually pretty decent, RPG.  You would hope, then, that the sequel would be even better.  More polished, perhaps? Better combat (one of the weaker elements of the first game)? Professional voice actors maybe? You'd certainly expect it to build... read more.

It's been a looong time coming but the the sequel to the fun first person shooter, Tribes 2 (yes, I'm ignoring Tribes: Vengance for good reason), is finally here in the form of free-to-play, Tribes: Ascend.  If you've never played a Tribes game, you may find the movement a little... different.... read more.

Batman Arkham City

As I mentioned in a previous post, with all of the rather poor superhero games that had been churned out before (with the exception of Spiderman 2 perhaps) Batman Arkham Asylum was a bit of a surprise when it first landed.  This did, however, mean that the bar had been set rather high for... read more.

RAGE... at John Carmack

If you’ve not heard of ID software’s John Carmack, he could be considered one of the pioneers of PC gaming and (partly) responsible for some of the games (Wolfenstein 3D, Doom and Quake) that shaped the first-person shooters… he is also one of the driving forces behind their... read more.

Artificial Intelligence?

If you are at all interested in Brink, you've probably read quite a lot of comments about it so far.  The vocal minority (as far as I can  tell) appear to be rather unhappy Xbox 360 owners getting some pretty bad lag when attempting to play online. I don't think the PC  version has... read more.

According to Homefront, "Home is where the war is"... and it certainly tries really hard to convince you that your home, in this instance America, has become a battlefield.

It is a curious test of any game series if you decide to play them one after the other. I'm not sure many would stand up to it.

Can I get a rewind?
Posted 2740 days ago by Naiboss

I've re-played a couple of 'older' games recently and (luckily) been reminded just how good some of them are. If you've ever played Bioshock, you shouldn't be surprised that it is still such a good game. Not that it is exactly old (released only two years ago) but, having played through it on the... read more.

Batman - Arkham Asylum is quite a surprise.

If I were to try and define my alignment (in a D&D sense) when it comes to games, I think it would be, as you'd expect, 'Chaotic Good'... do the 'right thing' but my own way. So, generally speaking, when it comes to moral choices in games, I do tend to throw my lot in on the 'good' side. I've... read more.
