  • My guide to tackling the February of open worlds

    It’s finally February and with it comes a slew of open-world, big-budget game releases. First, Dying Light 2 that will potentially take 500 hours to 100%; a game with more written words than most novels. Then there’s Horizon Forbidden West: no doubt bigger in scope with more things to...

  • Tanked Up 294 – A NitroSurge of Inscryption

    In the first half of the show Lucy talks about her growing addiction to Chivalry 2, a nonsense large-scale first person battler with unpredictable results. Ben returned back to megaquarium and is still enjoying Resi 8, while Aadil got sucked into the curse of optimisation and completion with cooking...
  • Hot Wheels Unleashed Review

    When I was a kid Hot Wheels were all the rage. From the classic car designs and the insane build your own track designs where you could literally create the most defying stunts. Hot Wheels has also branched out into the land of video games with many games along...
