Review – Past Cure

Tweet MK DULL-TRA Correct me if I’m wrong but aren’t psychological thrillers meant to be….ya know thrilling!?. I have a soft spot for games that really gets into my psyche and truly makes me feel like turning each corner could result in something shocking something with unfortunately can’t be said for Past Cure. Developed and self-funded by German company Phantom 8, Past Cure is advertised as ‘An intense, cinematic, story driven experience’ which can be true in some sense with the intensity sprouting within its rigid characters, a narrative that’s as cliched and predictable as they come and gameplay...

Review – Secret of Mana (PS4)

Tweet HAS YOUR CUP OF WISHES BEEN FULFILLED? STORY TIME! Back in 2012 I was pretty late to jump on the Wii bandwagon when I bought one out of sheer impulse and desperation to play Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword and Metroid: Other M (I now know better). But as time went on it slowly went from being a game console and more like a £60, more legally binding emulator as I partook in the Wii Shop and finally played Nintendo classics that had past me by during my youth, being a Sega Mega Drive kid n’all.

The latest example to make its way to me is...

Review – Ken Follet’s The Pillars of the Earth – Book Two: Sowing the Wind

Tweet THE STRUGGLE CONTINUES IN THE EPIC MIDWAY POINT I have been waiting or this one for months on end! Last year, the first book of Daedalic Entertainment’s point and click adventure Ken Follet’s Pillars of the Earth (aptly titled – From the Ashes) was such a dark horse in my opinion featuring unique visuals, a dramatic story (albeit a bit slow at times) with several twists and turns and showed a great insight to the hardships and structure of 12th century England. And it found itself taking a very prestigious spot on *drum roll* WESTY’S TOP 10 GAMES...

Review – Shadow of the Colossus HD Remake

Tweet OOOOOOOOOOOOH LOOK WHAT THE REMAKE FAIRY BROUGHT US! I have often said remasters and remakes over the years have become somewhat over done but when they are released something deep inside us all just goes insane when they are presented before us because NOSTALGIA SELLS!! The games we loved years ago being slapped on the latest console generation with great new graphics and revamped aesthetics is something that people just can’t seem to ignore leading to the inevitable ‘shut up and take my money!’ situation and this is certainly the case with Shadow of the Colossus HD Remake...
