A run in with a Nintendo 64 one fateful evening gave me an inexplicable power to untangle any wire and clear any game cartridge of dust. Powers that are little use in this day of wireless technology and digital media downloads....

Warhammer 40k: Inquisitor - Martyr has finally made its way onto PS4 and Xbox One after releasing on PC in June. You can read Alan's full review of the game here, while this will be more focused on the changes from PC to console and the impacts they have on the game overall.

Belong Gaming Arenas by GAME, The Modern Day Arcade?

Last week we were invited to a grand opening of one GAME's Belong gaming arenas which sprung up memories of the golden era of Arcades. The...

All Walls Must Fall Review

All Walls Must Fall is a Tech-Noir Tactics game which sounds pretty freaking sweet. You hear a combination of words like that and you think Shadowrun, Frozen Synapse, and Invisible Inc., all incredibly good games operating around a similar theme but each with a unique style. With such highly regarded titles to live up to, the question is, does it?

NERF Laser Ops Pro Alpha Point Blaster Review

It's not every day you get handed a pair of NERF Laser Ops Pro Alpha Point blasters with the instructions "Go nuts." but when...

Insane Robots Review

Insane Robots is probably the most fun I've had playing a game of its type in a very long time. It would be wrong to call it a deck based card battler but not wholly untrue. I admit that makes no sense but hopefully over the course of the next 1,000-ish words I'll be able to explain myself and send you racing to download a copy and start smashing some deranged droids yourself.

Octopath Traveler Review

Okay, first off the title is wrong, the Traveler in Octopath Traveler should be spelled with two "L"s but whatever. I've put a lot of time into this title so far (and I'm not even close to done...) and that's one of my biggest gripes, which is either a really really good thing or a really really bad one. Spoiler alert: It's a good one, Octopath Traveler is fantastic. It set a high bar with its prologue demo and has soared clean over it!

Preview: NERF Laser Ops Pro

It's not every day your editor messages you to say "Hey, who wants to go to a NERF event?" and if anyone answers that question with anything other than "Oh fuck yes." then they don't deserve their place upon this mortal plane. Naturally, I said yes and boy howdy what a blast did I have!
