In Memoriam – The Thing

“Someone in this camp ain’t what he appears to be…” Billed as the sequel to John Carpenter’s 1982 horror classic, The Thing released to both critical and commercial acclaim for the Xbox, Playstation 2 and PC in 2002, collectively selling over 1 million units worldwide. Mirroring the theme of paranoia and mistrust that was rooted deep in the first movie, it’s no wonder that The Thing (2002) developed a solid cult following from both fans of the 1982 movie and survival horror fans alike. Despite it’s more than solid reception however, developer Computer Artworks went into receivership in 2003 after...

Review – Black Mirror (PS4)

“I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity.” Originally released for PC in 2003, The Black Mirror was the start of a trilogy of ‘point-and-click’ adventure titles that were heavily inspired by the fiction and prose of H.P. Lovecraft and Edgar Allan Poe respectively. Initially met with a mixed critical reception, they went on to generate a substantial cult following leading up to the 2017 re-boot of the same name from King Art Games and THQ Nordic. Black Mirror is a direct re-boot to the long running franchise, acting as a modern re-imagining of the tragic tale of...

‘Behind-the-Scenes’ on Battalion 1944 – Inspirations, launch date and pricing detailed

Papa’s got a brand new bag… If there’s one game that’s been burned into my retina since its initial unveiling, it would be Battalion 1944 by a mile. In an age where FPS titles are annual franchises, the simple and graceful gameplay design found in the likes of classic shooters such as Unreal Tournament and Call of Duty 2 have been lost somewhat in recent years, something that Bulkhead Interactive have been hard at work trying to replicate with Battalion 1944. Announced on Kickstarter in the early months of last year, the game’s reveal scratched an itch that clearly...

Call of Duty: WW2 – Final Verdict (PS4)

“We’re not lost, Private… we’re in Normandy.” On November 3rd Call of Duty: WW2 released worldwide following a very successful advertising campaign after announcing a return to its World War 2 roots.  The private multiplayer beta that took place in August this year however was met with mixed reviews by many, leaving a lot of people disheartened as to whether the game would deliver on the hype it was generating. Billed as going back to its ‘boots on the ground’ roots for the first time in nearly 9 years, COD: WW2 achieves this somewhat, but by no means conquers...

Review – Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus

“They’re the foot soldiers of a Jew-hatin’, mass murderin’ maniac and they need to be dee-stroyed. That’s why any and every son of a bitch we find wearin’ a Nazi uniform, they’re gonna die.” When it comes to first person shooter franchises, none come more widely recognised than the Wolfenstein series. Beginning in 1981, Wolfenstein has a strong history of sticking it to the Third Reich over 11 heavily successful titles, with the most recent being Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus which released worldwide last Friday for the PS4, PC and Xbox One. Being the sequel to the 2014...
