Mortal Shell is a Euro Jank/AA take on the Dark Souls franchise, created by a much smaller team, what they have managed to accomplish is already atoning, the open beta has many people talking, but the big questions remains, will it be good enough to win the approval of souls-like fans the world over? ....
A Second Lease on Life.
Titanfall 2 is a true treasure of the sci-fi shooter genre, and yet due to its launch window falling between one of the best Battlefields (Battlefield One) in recent memory and a very similar Call of Duty entry (Infinite Warfare) it struggled to garner a large enough player base to truly set the world on fire. ....
Due to the games recent and highly controversial release, I will be avoiding discussing the controversy in-depth, to spare readers from spoilers, at a later date I will offer my opinion on the narrative choice made by Naughty Dog, but for now, on with the review!
Pushing the Limits of the PS4.
The Last of Us 2 is a beautiful game, that rivals Red Dead Redemption 2 in what it has managed to coax out of a console in its twilight years, with very few games yet to release on the PS4 and only one more remaining major exclusive before Sony dedicates itself to PS5 it’s nice to see just what talented developers can accomplish with 7+-year-old hardware. ....

June 2020 saw the release of Last of Us 2, but that doesn’t mean that Last of Us is not worth playing in 2020, let’s take a look at how this classic of the PlayStation 3 era holds up in 2020.
This review is based on the Last of Us Remastered for the PlayStation 4.
Last of Us Remastered looks its age, while it’s still very possible to get immersed into the story and characters, cutscenes especially betray just how old the engine is, despite the remaster offering higher quality textures than the original, it is still very much a PS3 game, all albeit a very good looking one for its age. ....

Disclaimer: I was provided with a free copy of Amoeba Battle by the developers for review purposes.
Really shouldn’t have failed.
Amoeba Battle is a failure, it won’t bounce back from this, not even crossplay can save the microscopic player base, and that is a complete and total shame.
Amoeba Battle is a very unique and well put together RTS, with interesting mechanics and a spore-like approach to creating mutations. ....
Minecraft Dungeons is a fantastic ARPG, with a hint of Minecraft flavour.
The combat is simple and reminds me of the Xbox and Ps2 Lord of the Ring titles, titles that offered a genuine feel-good factor as you hacked enemies to pieces, by basing the A/X button.
Playing alone or co-op feels fantastic, and the semi-procedural nature of the maps aids replay value considerably. ....
Rainbow Siege 6 is currently in its 5th year and shows no sign of slowing down, while some of the original team have recently moved onto new pastures, we take a look at how Rainbow Siege 6 is currently doing and what we can expect in the coming months and beyond.
Some developers struggle to tell you what they will release six weeks from now, Ubisoft is so confident in the continued success of Rainbow Siege 6 they have given us a look at what’s to come in Year 5 and Year 6! ....
