Review: Destiny – The Taken King

Title: Destiny: The Taken King Platform: Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4 (Reviewed on) Developer: Bungie Publisher: Activision Release date: Out Now! Family Focus: Click here for more information. Destiny: The Taken King is the latest instalment of Bungie and Activision’s massive space MMORPG. It’s fair to say that it was quite possibly the most hyped game on the run up to its release on Sept 15, 2015 for current and old gen consoles. As an avid Destiny player, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Credit to Bungie, ‘year one’ of the game resulted in a lot of listening to the players and applying...

Review: God of War III Remastered

Title: God of War III Remastered Platform: PS4 (Reviewed on) Developer: SCE Santa Monica Studio Publisher: Sony Release date: Out Now! Family Focus: Click here for more information. I’ll start by saying that I have never played a God of War game before. It’s fair to say that I jumped in to this as a complete novice with an unbiased view on the series. I’ve actually owned every PlayStation since the original and some of my good friends were massive fans when God of War first came out. Despite the high praise and egging on to play it – the game continued to evade...

Review: Metal Gear Solid: The Phantom Pain

Title: Metal Gear Solid: The Phantom Pain Platform: Microsoft Windows, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4 (Reviewed on) Developer: Kojima Productions Publisher: Konami Release date: Out Now! Family Focus: Click here for more information. Personally speaking, this is a game I have wanted to play for a long time. I’m by no means an ‘expert’ at the series where I can run through the entire game on a speed run without any alerts, though I would say that I’m a veteran of sorts. I’ve played all of the main titles including MGS, MGS2 and MGS3: Snake Eater. The original MGS was actually one...

Review: Discstorm

Title: Discstorm Platform: Windows, Linux, Mac (reviewed on), PS Vita. Developer: XMPT Games Inc. Publisher: Mastertronic. Release date: Out now! Family Focus: Click here for more information. Discstorm reminded me a lot like shopping with my partner – a strange comparison but I’ll happily elaborate. Whenever I end up on the unfortunate end of high street shopping with my partner (it’s a guy thing – we generally don’t enjoy it), she goes on about how she wore something 15 years ago until it went out of fashion and that she can’t believe something has come back. What does that have to do with...

Review: Duet

Title: Duet. Platform: PC (reviewed on), iOS, Android. Developer: Kumobius Publisher: Kumobius Release date: Out Now Family Focus: Click here for more information. Duet, to me, was another somewhat welcomed addition to the library of games I normally wouldn’t stumble across.  I’ve mentioned in previous reviews and articles that I often like a challenge. The sense of satisfaction after overcoming a challenge in a video game is often difficult to explain to a non-gamer – but hopefully if you’re reading this – you get what I mean. Duet is a simple game from a graphical, sound and control perspective. You have to control...
