"A Silent Voice, one of Kyoto's finest productions to date, undoubtedly gives the viewer provocation to reflect on any regrettable childhood actions."
Vanquish is an excellent fast-paced, super stylish shooter in the third person, from Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami. Like Bayonetta, there have been very few titles like Vanquish in the last ten years.
"Don't f**k with a witch!" Bayonetta is up there with the best—arguably even the best—hack-'n-slash action game around. It's problematic and erratic PS3 port back in 2010 left a false impression - after all, Bayonetta is no mere historical curio. We may have had to wait ten years, but Bayonetta finally has the Playstation port it deserves,… Continue reading Bayonetta 10th Anniversary Remaster Review (PS4)

I’m not entirely sure how it’s come to this: a sequel to Shaq Fu, the now-infamous 24-year-old fighter. Actually, I am sure; Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn came from a successful crowd-funding programme. Which leads to a more important question: why is Shaq Fu back? On the basis of this, some demons are laid to rest. And in some ways,… Continue reading SHAQ FU: A LEGEND REBORN REVIEW (PS4)

That habit of naming sagas after the main villain never goes away, huh? The… Continue reading Dragon Ball Super Vol 2 Review

As mentally-scarred, borderline insane, revenge-driven, unrelenting anti-heroes go, Kratos is somehow quite an appealing character.

To ascend. God of War: Ascension is… Continue reading Review – God of War: Ascension (PS3)
