9.5 / 10.0 - Dark Souls III
Apr 12, 2016

Like it's world, Dark Souls III is a ferocious beast, and what every action-RPG should strive to be. A rewarding experience for veteran players, the kingdom of Lothric is littered with remnants of the past. Simultaneously, it is also the most accessible for new players, with its more prevalent plot and kinder introductory stages. Dark Souls III is everything I could have wished for as a fan, and a marvellous conclusion to one of the greatest modern trilogies.

Superb writing and a unique combat system combine to make The Banner Saga 2 something quite special, in the same way it did back in 2014. The larger variety and frequent introduction of enemy types stops The Banner Saga 2 from becoming dull and repetitive. The Banner Saga is fast becoming one of the best series in modern games, with some of the strongest characterisation and world-building in years.

An industry supergroup brings together their experience to tell an engaging narrative in a beautiful world. Firewatch explores love and commitment through two of the most authentic videogame characters I've seen. A simply wonderful game.

Tying up the final chapters of the Shippuden story in a fun and flashy fashion, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 really is the ultimate Naruto game. Every character, and every battle, is present in some form. The peak of the Ultimate Ninja Storm series.

An interesting and superbly told story, with far more emphasis on character and mature themes. Redesigned gunplay makes the combat rewarding in ways it never was before, and large arenas encourage constant movement. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is visually stunning, and the best we've seen on console. Naughty Dog have produced a fine farewell to one of PlayStation's most beloved characters.

Three of the PlayStation 3's strongest titles remastered by BluePoint Games for the PlayStation 4. Old problems with the gunplay are smoothed over with the boost to 60fps. The best way to play Uncharted for the first time or to catch up before the release of Uncharted 4.

A unique take on the turn based shooter, and a fun character-driven space adventure.

8 / 10.0 - Street Fighter V
Feb 15, 2016

Street Fighter V is the best fighting game available on the PlayStation 4 and the PC, and easily surpasses what the Xbox One has to offer. Street Fighter is back on top.

The Division doesn't have enough of a story to carry it as a shooter, let alone an RPG, but what is here is good. Each firefight is different due to the importance of weapon classes, and mix-and-matching skills when in a group adds a small depth. The Dark Zone is the freshest idea in The Division, but I don't see it carrying the game for months to come. A standard Ubisoft AAA game that may not live as long as intended.

7 / 10.0 - Bombshell
Feb 5, 2016

Bombshell doesn't seem to have gone down well with other critics, but I had a blast. Solid shooting backs up what I found to be an engaging gameplay loop. By no means the best twin stick shooter around, I had fun during the 8 hours I spent with it, and that's enough for me.
