PlayStation VR – The Best of Year One.

A year ago today, Sony released PlayStation VR, a major gamble for a console publisher commonly known for giving up on its hardware peripherals – in fact if it weren’t for PSVR, my PlayStation Move controller would still be collecting dust with its nunchuck counterpart and my Wonderbook (remember that?).  Since then, over 100 games have been released for the virtual reality system and more are coming almost every week.  Today I wanted to look back from A to Z at just a handful of the best titles that have…

First Impression: HEGIS GRASP On Steam

  Survival Horror, an old genre in gaming that was first seen in Alone in the Dark and was popularized by the iconic Resident Evil series. There is nothing more terrifying than controlling a character that is underpowered surrounded by monsters and other enemies that made this genre scary. Having limited resources and scrambling the map to find ammunition would require players to strategize how they play the game, because every single bullet counts. Hegis Grasp is an indie survival horror game that is currently in development by Salty Goal…

Rising up out of the ocean of Nintendo Switch releases comes Earth Atlantis from Headup Games/Pixel Perfex, an underwater exploration adventure detailing a world where most of mankind has been wiped out and all the world’s great capitals are now at the bottom of the sea.

Review: The Solus Project for PSVR.

Last year’s The Solus Project has come to ps4 – and PSVR.  The game is a first-person exploration and survival title set on an alien planet; your character has crash-landed on the world he’d been scouting to be a new home for humans.  The story goes some really wild places I won’t spoil for you, but at times it feels as ethereal as the Myst series while maintaining its own uniqueness. It’s actually hard to know where to start with Teotl Studios’ and Grip Digital’s The Solus Project, since every mechanic in the game is…

Well, 88 of the world’s worst heroes will be banded together in a bizarre team to save us all. Now if this doesn’t sound like the opening to one of the most unusual games around then I’m not really sure what to tell you. The fact remains that this is indeed the set up for what can only be described as a chaotically funny adventure that brings together an eclectic band of characters you couldn’t…

Golf Story – Nintendo Switch Review

Sports games are not something that hold any interest to me whatsoever. The likes of FIFA, NBA or PES have always completely washed over me with absolutely no sense of loss in any way. The franchises could stop in their tracks or re-invent the way gaming works and I’d happily sit in the corner paying very little attention. I’m not a lover of sports, point made, right? So cast your mind back several months to the announcement of Golf Story in the Nindies Showcase. Instantly my mind went “Golf….no thanks”…
