  • Maneater Review

    After just short of thirty hours playing this game, and reaching 100% completion, I put the controller down and started to reflect on the experience I just had. Maneater fills a void in gaming I did not know I had. Starting off innocuous enough with a humble faux documentary...
  • Doom Eternal Review

    I will cut to the chase, should you buy Doom Eternal? Yes, the game is insane. It is a love letter to the old school whilst adhering to modern conventions. The mixture results in something that feels familiar yet unique. This review will only cover the single-player portion of...
  • Punch Club Review

    Punch Club, published by Tiny Build and developed by Lazy Bear Games, made its fighting debut on the PC back in January of 2016 but now it has entered a new league and decided to take the belt on consoles now too. Punch Club is a management sim where...

  • Batman: The Telltale Series (Episode 1) – Review

    Originally posted by Luke Kear The first choice in Telltale’s new Batman series is for the colour of your Bat-tech. It’s exciting stuff and will surely affect the game’s final episode, whenever that’s released. I chose the classic yellow, knowing this would make my playthrough more immersive than a...
