Trials Rising (PS4)
The latest Trials game is exactly that, a Trials game. It combines great visuals with addictive gameplay loops and challenging levels in a perfect mélange to create a game that you want to keep coming back to.
The Division 2 (PS4)
Ubisoft have built on the success of The Division and stepped it up a notch with this sequel. Despite a weak story and some funny glitches The Division 2 is a masterpiece online loot shooter with near countless hours of fun to be had.

E3 2018 – Ubisoft Press Conference

Ubisoft opened a packed press conference in their usual style with a live performance for Just Dance 2019. Once they got that out of their system it was time for a non-stop flow of new trailers and gameplay footage for some of the best looking and most anticipated upcoming games. Read more…

E3 2018 – Microsoft Press Conference

Well my oh my. Microsoft certainly brought their A-game today with their press conference. On the back of some pretty weak exclusives recently, we had been asking what Microsoft have coming up to keep them competitive and I think we can safely say they delivered. Read more…

 
Trials Rising (PS4)
The latest Trials game is exactly that, a Trials game. It combines great visuals with addictive gameplay loops and challenging levels in a perfect mélange to create a game that you want to keep coming back to.
The Division 2 (PS4)
Ubisoft have built on the success of The Division and stepped it up a notch with this sequel. Despite a weak story and some funny glitches The Division 2 is a masterpiece online loot shooter with near countless hours of fun to be had.
Far Cry: New Dawn (PS4)
A colourful reimagining of the Far Cry 5 world with enough uniqueness to make it worth playing. The weak story lets it down but New Dawn provides a world full of fun.
Awesome Pea (PS4)
A retro green monochromatic visual style is the main defining feature of this simple 2D platformer. Tight controls and challenging levels make it good to play but it doesn't bring anything special to the table.
Pode (PS4)
A charming but short indie game which grows on you as you grow its world. Perfect for couch co-op with a friend but entirely enjoyable solo as well.
Anthem (PS4)
Despite initial worries based on the demo we were pleasantly surprised with Anthem. Technical glitches and crashes were common but the fun gameplay loop kept us going back. The future looks bright for this loot shooter.
Resident Evil 2 (PS4)
For a game that is 21 years old it holds up very well. Possibly the best remaster I've ever played.
Crackdown 3 (Xbox One)
This is a game that either should have been made a generation ago or not at all. Slow, easy, and lacking any heart or feeling.

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.

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.
