Skyrim – the geek shall inherit the earth

  First of all…I’ve never played an Elder Scrolls game before, but I freaking loved Fallout 3, with its sheer intimidating scale and its extreme VATS-powered ultraviolence. So how would I get on with a sub-Tolkien orc-em-up with a distinct lack of high powered ballistic weaponry? I’ll get the disclaimer out of the way… I’ve only been playing it for a couple of days and I’ve only scratched the surface with my weedy level 7 orc. I also don’t play a lot of games. So just imagine this is a review by your dad. Except sexier. My first couple of

Forza 4 Review

Published by in News, Reviews on October 23rd, 2011

Forza 4 is the latest in the long running Forza Motorsport series brought to us by Microsoft and those clever people at Turn 10 studios. A while back, we got a chance to meet with Dan Greenawalt the creative director from Turn 10 and he was telling us that Forza 4 was all about, “the passion that people have for cars” and how it’s “all about playing the game, the way you want to play” Now that might sound like well crafted marketing speak but it’s really not. Trying to compare Forza 4 to any other racing title out there

Red Dead Redemption – The Review

Published by in Reviews on October 17th, 2011

Xbox 360 PS3 Rockstar Games         When Red Dead Redemption came out last year I had fully intended on doing a review for it, but as time went by it seemed pointless. Of course it was a total commercial success and anything I could add would have been only academic. As the year past I found it more and more astonishing that so many people I talked to hadn’t played it – at all! They had heard of it of course but knew little about this wonderful game and like an itch picked up from a blurry night

Gears Of War 3 – The Review

Published by in Reviews on October 12th, 2011

Can you smell the grub’s… Hear the deep gurgle of a blood lusting throat… Smell the sweat of brawny beefcakes adorned in metal armour… Feel the bond of brothers in arms at their final hour of extinction… that’s right the Cogs are back in the third and apparently the final chapter for Gears of War – which is doubtful, can’t see Epic killing off their golden Boomer! Regardless, we are going to have a look at Gears of War 3 and see if this game is for you. Firstly I will say straight off the bat – If you hated

Driver: San Francisco Review

Published by in Reviews on September 5th, 2011

  For those of you who weren’t lucky enough to experience the original, the Driver series first came screeching onto our screens in 1998. There were always a few standard things that we could expect to see in a Driver Game, like frantic chases, cool cars,  great city locations and of course the exceptionally difficult missions and frustrating time limits. Driver has always tried to meld together the uber-cool feeling of the ’70s/’80s TV shows, along with iconic car movies while also trying to make the setting contemporary for the modern day gamer.     Generally it has been hit

Pro Evo 2012 – PC demo impressions

  There’s a rift among the footy-playing denizens of reaper towers. On one side the massed hordes of unwashed fifa lovers, on the other one heroic, sensual man still believing – still hoping -  in Shingo “Seabass” Takatsuka and Pro Evolution soccer. It wasn’t always this way. Once, fifa was a figure of lumpy fun, even back in the 16-bit days all the cool kids were playing the embryonic and axiometric-tastic International Superstar Soccer instead. It mutated into Pro Evolution Soccer on the playstation/playstation 2 reaching its zenith with the brilliant pro evo 5 while fifa continued to snivel along

Dirt 3 : Review

Published by in Reviews on June 22nd, 2011

      The third installment of the Colin McRae Dirt Series is here, and this time it has brought along its hoodie wearing Asbo cousin gymkhana. With the Dirt series, Codemasters have always tried to bring ‘seat of your pants’ off road racing to the masses and I’m glad to say they have done it again in spades. Once again, Codemasters have outdone themselves on the physics engine with the cars feeling alive as they slide around mud-filled corners and jitter nervously on tarmac. Before the start of each event, you can of course change the assists (racing line,

Duke Nukem Forever Review – Hail to the King… Maybe!?

Published by in Reviews on June 22nd, 2011

Xbox 360 – PS3 – PC Did you ever wait ages to take a dump and then finally do a great big splasher that brought tears of relief to your bowels? Well that’s what Duke Nukem Forever was supposed to be like. After over a decade in the making I think we all felt some surprise and relief that someone finally picked up the torch and tried to squeeze out this big chunk of messy delight… unfortunately it would appear that it is more of a drippy, runny, unpleasant gunge. I really appreciate what Randy Pitchford and Gearbox set out
