Control (PS4)
A new IP from industry veterans Remedy, Control is a twisting journey in to a twisting building and twisted minds. Good fun, yet not too hard in most places.
Erica (PS4)
A surprisingly strong story with quality acting performances and innovative PlayLink controls make this interactive movie a must-play game. At only two hours long it's short enough to breeze through while still offering replay-ability.

E3 2018 – PlayStation Press Conference

The award for most bizarre E3 press conference of the year goes to PlayStation! Yes I know, Nintendo haven’t done theirs yet but I think PlayStation have taken the cake already. If you look past the ridiculously long “intermission” in the middle of the show they actually had some really quality stuff to show including a whole bunch of gameplay. Read more…

Gears 5 (Xbox One)
As the sands of time inescapably roll on, so does this franchise. Nothing really new to see here, just another good fun Gears title. Great for fans of the franchise.
Wolfenstein: Youngblood (PS4)
Brilliant gunplay makes this game incredibly fun to play but cringeworthy dialogue and performances fail to bring the story to the level of the previous Wolfenstein games.
Age Of Wonders: Planetfall (PS4)
This huge game which combines the strategy elements of Civilization and XCOM is a delight to play as a fan of the genre. Newcomers may enjoy it too but the rich universe of the game does come with a very steep learning curve.

Lucas
The Podfather/Convo Controller
Super salesman by day, Batdad and Gamersutra by night. As a self-confessed technology pacifist, he prefers to sit on the console-war fence and play games on his PC.
Matt
PlayStation Fanboy/Motormouth
Electrician by trade and yet also highly skilled at finding time to game around work and family commitments. A PlayStation fanboy with a platinum count and obvious podcast bias to prove it. Thinks DC is clearly superior to Marvel. Has been known to rant.
