I write about video games, I live in beautifully sunny South Africa, my cats are delightful conversationalists and I'm current;y obsessed with collecting Combiner Wars Transformers. Life is fantastic right now!

9 / 10.0 - Bayonetta 2
Oct 13, 2014

Bayonetta 2 is something new blended with something familiar, improved in every way possible. Few other games can top it for sheer audacity and ballsiness, and if this is the last time we'll ever see the leggy witch, then she's going out with one hell of a bang.

9 / 10.0 - Doom
May 17, 2016

9 / 10.0 - DiRT 4
Jun 23, 2017

The sensation of rubber recklessly drifting across the sand, of splattering across your face and a grumpy Scotsman calling out the course before you as you violently swerve around corners. Rally racing is mental stuff and Dirt 4 captures that manic joy perfectly. The full fearless package of graphics, guts and glory.

9 / 10.0 - Destiny 2
Sep 15, 2017

Destiny 2 is action at its finest. An improved expansion you'd say, but a magnificent one at that which nails the idea of what it means to forge a legend.

Middle-Earth: Shadow of War is Lord of the Rings turned up to 11. Improving on nearly every idea from the original Shadow of Mordor game, it's a gargantuan sequel in both size and scope.
