Marvel’s Midnight Suns PC review

Firaxis, master of the turn-based strategy game refocuses its efforts away from civilisations and alien invasions and instead towards the Marvel Universe with Marvel’s Midnight Suns.

Adapting Marvel Comics to other media is fraught with risk. Decades of complex, and often contradictory, continuity makes for quite the creative minefield. Whilst everything Marvel Studios touches in the cinema turns to gold; others have not fared so well when it comes to video games. Continue reading Marvel’s Midnight Suns PC review

The Dark Pictures Anthology: The Devil in Me PlayStation 5 review

Supermassive Games rounds off the first season of The Dark Pictures Anthology with The Devil in Me, a sinister tale set in a hotel based on the crimes of America’s first serial killer.

Like an interactive TV show, season one of The Dark Pictures Anthology has had us exploring a creepy ghost ship, revisiting the witch trials, and running from vampires in a subterranean vault. Each bite-sized game has players guiding characters and interacting with an ensemble cast trying to get them all out alive. Decisions not only affect each character’s fate but also how they react to one another. The result is an edge-of-seat experience that is different with every playthrough.

Continue reading Sackboy: A Big Adventure PC review

Atari 50: The Anniversary Celebration Switch review

The rise and fall of the pioneering video games company Atari reads like a modern myth. It’s a surreal tale of how a few enterprising computer engineers saw the future of interactive entertainment and laid the foundations for what is now a billion-dollar industry.

Atari 50: The Anniversary Celebration is an incredibly well-presented digital museum of video gaming heritage. It follows the timeline from Atari’s first Computer Space cabinet right up to the ill-fated Atari Jaguar console. Continue reading Atari 50: The Anniversary Celebration Switch review

God of War Ragnarök PlayStation 5 review

Kratos and his son, Atreus, continue their adventures across the nine realms of Norse mythology in God of War Ragnarök, the highly anticipated follow-up to the long-running series’ 2018 soft reboot. Continue reading God of War Ragnarök PlayStation 5 review

Gotham Knights PC review

WB Games Montreal, developers of Batman: Arkham Origins, return to the Dark Knight Detective’s hometown with Gotham Knights.

Batman is dead, killed during a fight with one of his deadliest enemies, Ra’s al Ghul, in the opening moments of the game. This is a polarising introduction that is likely to upset fans of the Batman: Arkham games expecting a continuation of the Rocksteady Studios franchise. Continue reading Gotham Knights PC review

The Dark Pictures Anthology: The Devil in Me PC preview

Supermassive Games’ The Dark Pictures Anthology reaches its season finale with The Devil in Me. I got to spend an hour or so with the upcoming horror game.

The Devil in Me is the fourth title in The Dark Pictures Anthology. The series of games are presented in a manner very similar of that of a TV show, like Alfred Hitchcock Presents. They mainly employ psychological horror to portray events that may, or may not, be supernatural. Continue reading The Dark Pictures Anthology: The Devil in Me PC preview
