Mini Review Those Who Remain - Horror Has Never Been This Dull
As above, so below
Those Who Remain is almost everything the horror genre has tried to get away from for the past couple of years. With gameplay that teeters between mundane, aimless puzzle-solving and the hide and seek loop which put Outlast on the map, this experience feels dated the moment it releases. It doesn't do anything terrible -- it's just...

Review Close to the Sun - A Tribute Act That Struggles to Land
To say that Close to the Sun heavily evokes BioShock in its opening chapters is a massive understatement.

News GRIP Adds WipEout-Like Anti-Grav Vehicles with Latest Update
Wipe out the competition
We thought GRIP was a somewhat decent reimagining of PS1 racer Rollcage when it released late last year, but now developer Caged Element is going for a different type of vibe with its latest update. Anti-grav vehicles have been patched into the game, emulating the likes of WipEout. The free update is available now, and...

What a BioShock
Back at Gamescom 2018, an interesting first person horror game was announced, before disappearing altogether.

We still don't know a whole lot about the game itself, but it's recently been announced that Wired...
Review GRIP - An Inconsistent Reimagining of PSone Racer Rollcage
Not very gripping
Combat racing games have been noticeably absent from present-day conversation. Kart racers continue to live on thanks to their accessibility and amiability, but modern combat racing games seem to have trouble breaking into the public gaming consciousness. GRIP seeks to bring a forgotten genre back while also boasting tight controls...
News Combat Racer GRIP Latches on to 6th November Release Date
Get a GRIP
Car combat was the Battle Royale of the PSone days in many ways, as publishers all searched for their own answer to Twisted Metal.

The game’s latched on to a 6th November release date, and it’s looking...
News GRIP, a Brand New Combat Racer, Announced for PS4
All the arcade racers are finally beginning to drift onto PS4, a system that's been starved of the genre for years.

Review Max: The Curse of Brotherhood (PS4)
Making its mark(er)
Marker pens, however old you are, always seem to be the unsung heroes of life: in school, we used them to write the latest playground swear on mucky whiteboards; in college, we used them to cover every inch of our textbooks so we looked like we were learning something; and in adult life we use them whenever the trusty Biro runs...

Review The Town of Light (PS4)

Review Super Dungeon Bros (PS4)
Bros before foes
Super Dungeon Bros certainly has personality, we'll give it that. The title is shouted at you above a heavy soundtrack, the game tells you to 'Press X to rock', and you feel like you know how things are going to go from there. When you start the quest, an opening cut-scene begins, introducing the bros (all named after rock stars, of...
