9.5 / 10.0 - Tekken 8
Jan 25, 2024

Tekken 8 is flawless, and should be heralded as a grand achievement for the long-running fighter, a literal groundbreaking push for future entries that will surely improvise from its example of excellence.

10 / 10.0 - Mortal Kombat 1
Oct 9, 2023

A statement from its creators, that gifts gamers that has followed the series for three decades, from the arcade to a lofty, cinematic gaming juggernaut, cementing its stance as the fighting genre’s best ever. Mortal Kombat 1 is unmissable, and is sure to delight any all gamers that are looking to dive deep into fantastic writing, some mindless combat and delectable bloodlust.

7.5 / 10.0 - NBA 2K24
Sep 22, 2023

It's not the best entry into the franchise, but most certainly not the worst, but NBA 2K24 may be reaching far beyond downtown, and undoubtedly missing after the final buzzer.

8 / 10.0 - F1 Manager 2023
Sep 19, 2023

F1 Manager 23 promises to deliver a fantastic fix for those that want to be in control from a mission statement, rather than making marks on the tarmac.

If you’ve yet to play an Armored Core title, and are interested in getting into the mech-action then this is the quintessential entry title into the modernised series without question. Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon brings it back with an insanely polished gameplay loop, eerily gorgeous overlay, and an immaculate engine that runs this game without hurdles.

6 / 10.0 - Park Beyond
Jul 5, 2023

Park Beyond's premise is an exciting one that's full of promise, but its technical issues, gameplay limitations and core fundamentals hold it back from being a truly polished park tycoon title.

8.5 / 10.0 - AEW: Fight Forever
Jun 28, 2023

Its a great campaign to bring in those that aren’t yet familiar with AEW’s product, but also those that are but aren’t avid gamers. This is prime pro-wrestling video gaming at its best, and one I will be delving into for years to come. Goodbye, and Goodnight. BANG!

10 / 10.0 - Final Fantasy XVI
Jun 22, 2023

Final Fantasy XVI proposes a new foundation for finding a masterclass of perfection in action role-playing, and cements a prime legacy founded on past iterations, capitalising on a formula that's seen inarguable successes throughout its years in this medium, and has promulgated an establishment of extravagance that will indeed be hard to surpass.

9 / 10.0 - Street Fighter 6
Jun 16, 2023

Don't call it a comeback or a renaissance, but think of it as the next chapter of growth in this long-standing saga. Street Fighter has held an insanely large portion of the fighting genre in the palm of its hands for decades, and yes it almost suffered its own embarrassing knock-out last round, but it's come back stronger, tougher, quicker and much more appealing than ever.

10 / 10.0 - Diablo IV
May 31, 2023

It’s sure to satiate those that are looking to sink their teeth into another grind for endless hours, while giving back an authentic RTS experience that’s not just written in blood but its developer’s bearings. Diablo IV is unmissable. Praise Lilith.

STAR WARS Jedi: Survivor will be a perceived as a prominent piece of gaming history from 2023. A leading standard to action-adventure, role-playing, hack-and-slash storytelling that adapts the incredibly creative minds of Lucasfilm’s original vision.

There’s a tale told with great ambition and aspiration behind its lore, its successes and how it will act as a defiant moment in Nintendo’s growth, but The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is a set to be 2023’s landmark achievement in gaming – nothing short of extraordinary.

7 / 10.0 - Dead Island 2
May 8, 2023

Caked in brain-matter, coinciding with its barrage of a bloody good time, Dead Island 2's quirks are what make it an insanely fun campaign to dive deep in.

Octopath Traveler II has the formula for being one of, if not the greatest Japanese Role-Playing games of all time. A modern classic for that ages.

Resident Evil 4 Remake is a calamitous call back that welcomes all horror fans with a gruesome greeting of grisly gaming, that's impact will certainly be felt upon RE's promising prospects.

8 / 10.0 - WWE 2K23
Mar 20, 2023

WWE 2K23 is an excellent addition to the longstanding WWE video games library. The insurmountable polish that’s been applied to this love letter for fans is insanely generous. The largest roster in WWE 2K/SmackDown!/Smackdown Vs. Raw history, Wargames and notable legends included all makes this a worthwhile experience.

Is it a justified chapter in Destiny 2’s plotline? Possibly not, but it does give us a nice bridge toward The Final Shape, to which I feel is Bungie’s final goodbye to what has been an excellent online shooter for a near decade. Destiny 2 Lightfall isn’t the best expansion, but is indeed an expansion to experience if you’re deep into the series and are looking forward to its curtain call.

7.5 / 10.0 - Scars Above
Mar 13, 2023

Scars Above may be a little on the repetitive side, and sure it’s not perfect. I wouldn’t say it’s not worth trying out, but I would also classify it somewhere between a quick fix to expect nothing too lofty. The characters are forgettable, the story is not important, and its mission statement is worthless to its protagonist in the sense that there’s no goal to attain, rather a moral standard to which in a dire situation as this would be a judgement call, rather than any level headedness applied.

Horizon Call of the Mountain is unquestionably one of the best VR experiences I’ve ever had the privilege and pleasure of playing. Unequivocally designed to masterfully contend with other escapades of its ilk, and AAA successes, and it goes without saying, lays trademark influence of base PS5 titles toward PSVR2’s ingenuity and bold integrity out of the box
