Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End Review

Uncharted 4 feels like the culmination of all of Naughty Dog’s years of hard work with the franchise. Each game has improved on the last and A Thief’s End is no exception, easily topping my early list of game of the year contenders. It is not perfect, but the attention to detail that has gone into every aspect of the game is admirable and anyone who owns a Playstation 4 owes it to themselves to see it through to completion.

Backwards Compatibility Spotlight: Call of Duty: Black Ops

The original Black Ops is my favourite game the Call of Duty series. I know that is a bold statement and many people will likely point to either Modern Warfare or Modern Warfare 2 as their favourites and I get the arguments for those games, or in fact, any of the games in the series. Except Ghosts, that was just straight up bad. But in my humble opinion, the original Black Ops had the best overall package between its campaign, multiplayer and zombies modes. Read more …

Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Review

With fighting games making a huge comeback in recent years it seems virtually every franchise is trying something unique to draw people in. Mortal Kombat has the gore, Injustice has the DC licences and Marvel vs. Capcom has the tag system. Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite has…. an all female roster of characters from obscure Japanese manga novels and anime.

Okay, granted this might not be the most thrilling hook for all but the most hardcore of anime lovers but underneath it all is a very entertaining, if slightly barebones, game that is worth a try. Read more …

Enigmatis: The Ghosts of Maple Creek Xbox One Review

Developers Artifex Mundi are carving out something of a niche for themselves on Xbox One in the point and click/ hidden object game genre with both Nightmares from the Deep: The Cursed Heart and now Enigmatis: The Ghosts of Maple Creek making the jump from PC to the console audience.

Enigmatis is the more recent of the two to be released and focuses on a detective searching for a missing girl in a small town in the Maple Creek valley. Unfortunately for her, a storm has devastated the town and left her with short term amnesia. To compound matters further, the storm destroyed her room and diary, meaning she will have to start from scratch with the investigation. Read more …
