Title: Dragons Dogma: Dark Arisen Platform: PC, Xbox One (reviewed), PS4 Developer: Capcom Publisher: Capcom Release date:  October 15, 2017 Tl;Dr: A uniquely brilliant experience from one of the best devs out there. Price: £30/$35 Family Focus: Click here for more information. If I was to say that a game existed that was a cross between Dark Souls, Monster Hunter, and Shadow of the Colossus, would you believe me, or laugh in my face? Well, if you chose the latter, prepare to eat your laughter, for this game exists, and oh my, is it glorious! Dragons Dogma: Dark Arisen is a game that,...

Review: Jettomero: Hero of the Universe

Title: Jettomero: Hero of the Universe Platform: PC (reviewed), Xbox One Developer: Ghost Time Games Publisher: Ghost Time Games Release date: 18th September 2017  Tl;Dr: An absolutely stunning game that could have been so much more. Price: £10/$13 Family Focus: Click here for more information. When I think of a Kaiju, I think of a hulking, destructive force that cares not for the puny humans it crushes. Conventional weapons serve only to make it more angry as it tears down building after building. All is lost in its never ending destructive wake. What I do not think of is a cute red robot that...

Review: Samurai Riot

Title: Samurai Riot Platform: PC (reviewed) Developer: Wako Factory Publisher: Wako Factory Release date: 13th September 2017 Tl;Dr: A great concept for a game that just isn’t fully explored. Price: £13/$15 Family Focus: Click here for more information. I had fun playing games like Streets of Rage and Double Dragon on my dad‘s old consoles back when I was a young gamer. I loved kicking the beans out of any sprite that dared come my way. Since then the world of side scrolling beat ’em ups has grown rather stale, with each new game in the genre just being a reskin of the core concepts...

Review: Tyranny – Bastard’s Wound

Title: Tyranny – Bastards Wound Platform: PC (reviewed) Developer: Obsidion Entertainment Publisher: Paradox Interactive Release date: 7th September 2017 Tl;Dr: The only thing better than Tyranny, is a bit more Tyranny. But just a little bit more. Price: £11/$18 Family Focus: Click here for more information. I make no secret that I really do enjoy Obsidian’s style of RPG. Their previous offer, Pillars Of Eternity kept me going for hours on end, and I still remember my time with it fondly. So, as always, I was delighted to find out I would be reviewing the new DLC to the latest in the legacy of...

Title: Aven Colony Platform: PC (reviewed), Xbox One, PS4 Developer: Mothership Entertainment Publisher: Team 17 Release date: 25th July Tl;Dr: An innovative city builder set on a beautiful alien world. Price: £24/$30 Family Focus: Click here for more information. If you read my One Hour Tour of Aven Colony then you probably know how this review is going to go. I made no secret of my love for the out of this world city builder, and I can safely say, having finally got my hands on the full game, that my opinion has not changed one bit! This gorgeous city builder is just such a delight...

Review: Super Cloudbuilt

Title: Super Cloudbuilt Platform: Xbox One (reviewed), PS4 and PC Developer: Coilworks Publisher: Double Eleven Release date: July 25th Tl;Dr: An interesting culmination of many different concepts, marred by definite flaws flaws. Price: Not revealed as of writing Family Focus: Click here for more information. Although I have completed the game, gone back and twiddled with it, then played a bit more on top of that, I still can’t get my head around Super Cloudbuilt! The “re-release,” of Double Eleven and Coilworks platform shooter has kept me on my toes for the last few days. As the picture suggests, Super Cloudbuilt is a fast...
