I have has been gaming since 1992 when I received my first game console, a discounted Sega Master system with built in Sonic the Hedgehog, so began a 25 year love of gaming!
Review: Gear Tactics

Gear Tactics is an authentic Gears of War game that will be immediately approachable to fans of the franchise, an abrupt change of genre in no way distracts from the core gameplay mechanics or narrative, an exceptionally well put together game that basks in polish and attention to detail.

An Authentic Gears of War Narrative.

Anyone who has ever played even a few minutes of any Gears of War game will notice two underlining themes that are everpresent, one of which is every single male character is built like a barn and talks like they are 90% testosterone and 10% beef steak, the other is the earth government is cold, unfeeling and at times commits acts of unspeakable genocide for good reasons. ....  Read Full Article

Review: Predator Hunting Grounds

Predator Hunting Grounds is a bog-standard co-operative shooter that is elevated by its IP and the Predator mechanics.

Let’s be honest.

Without the Predator IP this game would never see the light of day, the graphics while impressive do not make up for the fact it’s a bog-standard co-operative shooter with very little in the way of unique locations or originality. ....  Read Full Article

Review: Trials of Mana

Trials of Mana (2020) is a stunning remake of the classic 1995 role-playing game Seiken Densetsu 3,  quirky characters, decent voice acting, stunning world design and an interesting story come together to offer one of the most enjoyable modern JRPG.

Retro Review: Jetpac Refuelled

Jetpac proves that gamers of the 1980s were either smarter than gamers of 2020, or there is something wrong with every 1980s/1990s game ever made.

North, South, East, West, 4-way directional controls are not the best.

Jetpac Refuelled is a game with two major modes, the first of which is classic Jetpac from 1983, upon starting this mode I found myself quickly killed over and over, the total lack of diagonal controls to me felt as alien as trying to drive with my eyes closed, I just couldn’t get used to it. ....  Read Full Article
