Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star PS4 Review

Surprised is the first word that comes to mind when I think of my experience with Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star.

I feel as though there will be two kinds of players that play Fate/Extella on PS4. One kind will be those that are familiar with the Fate anime series, that has spanned multiple series, films and games. And then there will be players like myself, who have not encountered the Fate series before and so may find the whole thing rather strange, but ultimately very enjoyable. Read more …

Embracing the PS4 after claiming Xbox / PC superiority.

Some of you living in the UK may be aware that recently there was a nationwide purge of the old PS4 models in order for stores to stock and sell the new PS4 Slim and Pro models. The original (and better looking in my opinion) model was sold with a copy of Fifa 17 for only £150 making it the best deal in a long time and sending an entire nation of gamers into a frenzy.

Inside Review

It’s amazing to think it has been six long years since developers Playdead dropped Limbo onto the XBL marketplace. It may have lost some of it’s mystique seeing as it is now available via virtually any current gaming medium and has inspired a number of similar games but at the time it was seen as a groundbreaking puzzle platformer and one of a handful of games credited with helping Xbox Live Arcade really take off and kick off the rapid rise of indie downloadable games onto consoles. Playdead’s follow up, Inside, has therefore been on a lot of peoples radars since it was announced a couple of years ago and now finally it has seen the light of day. Read more …

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.
