The A500 Mini Retro Gaming Console review

Retro Games, the UK outfit responsible for a range of retro gaming devices from joystick to full-sized Vic-20s and C64 emulators, have launched their A500 Mini Retro Gaming Console. Styled on the original Commodore Amiga 500, this tiny console comes preloaded with twenty-five classic Amiga games and the capacity to add even more.

Ghostwire Tokyo PS5 review

Although a bit of  tonal departure for Bethesda, Ghostwire Toyko is a good-looking and eerie action game that is aimed at a very select audience. Continue reading Ghostwire Tokyo PS5 review

Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands PC review

Gearbox, the Borderlands crew adapt the series’ signature look to the game within a game that is 2K Games’ Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands.

The Borderlands games are over-the-top first-person shooting/driving games set in a weird sci-fi universe where players hunt for elusive vaults full of treasure. A tongue-in-cheek plot and ridiculously overpowered weapons have made the games very popular. Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands is a spin-off that joins Borderlands, Borderlands 2, Borderlands 3, and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. Continue reading Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands PC review

Grid Legends PC Review

Is Codemasters’ latest entry in its Grid road-racing series ready for another lap or is it time to pit in? We find out.

Fresh off PlayStation’s Gran Turismo 7, racing in Grid Legends seems like a doddle. The two games are pretty much opposite ends of the spectrum. Gran Turismo 7’s uncompromising car physics and handling are a world away from the “simcade” racing style of the Grid games. GT’s careful cornering is replaced by exciting, if over-the-top, epic powerslides and drifts. Continue reading Grid Legends PC Review

Serious Sam: Siberian Mayhem PC review

Grand Theft Auto V Xbox Series X review

For the umpteenth time since the game’s original launch back in September 2013, I find myself playing another polished-up version of Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto V.

Not that I’m complaining, as GTA V remains one of my favourite games, even if I have played it on Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and now Xbox Series X. Yes, the crime blockbuster and its ever-involving online companion game have been polished up for another generation of consoles. Continue reading Grand Theft Auto V Xbox Series X review

The Elden Ring Xbox Series X review

From Software’s latest game to feature their infamous “Soulsborne” gameplay, The Elden Ring, is now thrilling and tormenting players in equal measure.

The Elden Ring places players in the shoes of the exiled Tarnished on a mission to restore the Elden Ring, of which pieces are scattered across the Lands Between, the game world. It’s a fantasy role-playing game of the same ilk as developer From Software’s usual offerings. Continue reading The Elden Ring Xbox Series X review

OlliOlli World PC review

2D skateboarding game franchise OlliOlli gets a huge facelift with the new series entry OlliOlli World.

The first thing that hits you when you load OlliOlli World is the amazing art style. The surreal look of the game bears a striking similarity to the frivolous animation in the TV show Adventure Time. This casual look updates what is essentially quite a retro game. Continue reading OlliOlli World PC review
