6.8 / 10.0 - Attack of the Bugs
Dec 17, 2017

If you have a headset already, the low price of Attack of the Bugs will make it easily obtainable, and introduced me to the genre perfectly. With a good mix of different mechanics on show, and an easy to pick up gameplay premise, I really can’t recommend Attack of the Bugs enough.

It’s a real RPG experience that the hardcore gamers out there will enjoy more than anything.

4.5 / 10.0 - Ben 10
Nov 30, 2017

I am still surprised by just how much fun I had with Ben 10. It’s an extremely simple brawler, but it nails the game play elements to a tee. It leaves a lot to be desired for in the production values areas, but a younger audience may not be able to pick up on those flaws. If you have a younger sibling, or a child of your own who enjoys watching the Ben 10 TV show, then I honestly see them loving this game. If they follow the story themselves, they’ll definitely get a kick out of playing all these weird and wacky ailens here. The older audience may still get a kick out of it too, if you are looking for something a little simpler, and something you can just load up for an hour or two allowing you to zen out for a bit, then Ben 10 will have you set, my friend.

9.6 / 10.0 - Super Mario Odyssey
Nov 26, 2017

Super Mario Odyssey has certainly got PC Aficionado’s venture in Switch reviews off to a good start. This is easily one of my all time favorite games, and I will be surprised if Odyssey is not voted as 2017s Game of the Year. Either way there are going to be one set of angry fans, with Mario and Zelda both vouching for most people’s votes. I’m not going to say Super Mario Odyssey is a perfect 10/10, but it comes damn near close, and it is a must buy for any Switch owners. In fact, this is a console seller it self. If you were on the fence about buying a Switch before, Odyssey should push you well and truly over to the store.

4.8 / 10.0 - Sonic Forces
Nov 17, 2017

Unfortunately, my first experience with a Sonic game isn’t one I am hoping to remember for years to come, in fact Sonic Forces is a very bland and forgettable game. The lacklustre 3D platforming, and boring boss fights condemn Sonic Forces to a bargain bin level of release.

The end of the episode does lend itself to a second season coming out, with a mysterious figure finding Thanos’ body. I hope this does lead onto a second season as I found Telltale’s Guardians of the Galaxy to be one of my favourites. Episode 5 does have a slight premature ending, but ultimately rounds off the season pretty well.

With the season ramping up in tempo and the story really tethering off towards a conclusion, Guardians of the Galaxy is really turning into one of Telltale’s best series’ to date.

Football fanatics will adore any edition of Football Manager - being the latest release chock-full of new features while still keeping what made the previous games great, there is no better place to start learning than here.

Picking right up where we left off in episode 2, with more important choices to make. More Than a Feeling sets up the rest of the season for high hopes, and we cannot wait to see what's in store.

8 / 10.0 - Ruiner
Nov 5, 2017

A fast paced, action oriented Cyberpunk thriller that kept me coming back for more. A stunning title that fans of the genre will love.

5.6 / 10.0 - Deadbeat Heroes
Nov 5, 2017

The story and banter between characters are Deadbeat Hero’s major strong points, but the annoying gating mechanics on show for slowing down progression and forcing replaying previous levels halted my enjoyment for the game, and to top it off, I didn’t really enjoy looking at the game either. An interesting story that has been let down by some poor choices on the mechanic front.

Life is Strange: Before the Storm - Episode 2: Brave New World, has certainly picked up the season for me, and elevating it on par with the original season. I must now patiently wait for the next episode!

8.3 / 10.0 - Batman: Arkham Knight
Nov 3, 2017

The conclusion of Batman Arkham Knight may come as a controversial one. We are going to highly recommend Arkham Knight. The game play and interesting compelling story make it a definite worthwhile play through.

I enjoyed every minute of it. I would have like to see the price drop a little bit over the course of the past two years but you are still getting a game that is a joy to play from start to finish here.

5.5 / 10.0 - AER: Memories of Old
Oct 30, 2017

The three hours I had playing AER were fun, but I won’t have any everlasting memories of this game, and neither will I probably remember what even happened a few days from now. A forgettable experience that had plenty of opportunities to be more.

The New Colossus may just be a surprise contender for game of the year for me. I enjoyed every second of my time with this game

7.4 / 10.0 - Destiny 2
Oct 27, 2017

Slightly underwhelmed, but still a classy shooter that will be made 100% better if played with friends. Future content will make or break the longevity of Destiny 2 though.

To put it simply, The Witcher 3 is a piece of modern gaming’s history and is a masterpiece that every RPG fan will need to experience if they haven’t already.

8.3 / 10.0 - Dark Souls III
Oct 22, 2017

If you haven’t played Dark Souls up until now because of the difficulty, then Dark Souls 3 still isn’t going to change that. It’s the tried and tested gameplay, with a few polished up features. It is by far the best game in the series, but it is only going to appeal to a certain demographic of gamer. Those who enjoy the test of increasingly difficult combat systems, a slow and methodical approach to progression and who don’t get frustrated easily will certainly have already played Dark Souls 3 by now, but if it’s sitting in your library and you have always wondered “Am I good enough?” Then the answer is almost certainly “No, you are not you absolute scrub” but you should still boot up Dark Souls 3 for an epic experience you cannot get anywhere else.
