Ghostbusters: The Video Game (Remastered) – PS4 Review

“For me, Ghostbusters was never a perfect film, it always felt a little rough around the edges and somewhat stitched together to create a functional, memorable movie of the ages. We might not remember this game with the same level of enthusiasm and appreciation but in that regard, it captures the spirit of The Ghostbusters perfectly.” Continue reading Ghostbusters: The Video Game (Remastered) – PS4 Review

The Outer Worlds Review

“It feels very much like a homage to the work of Bethesda and Bioware, taking the best elements of each studio to create a new franchise that whilst not pushing the bar creatively to far outside its comfort zone is still an accomplishment in itself” Continue reading The Outer Worlds Review

12 Months, 12 Games: October– Until Dawn

“As events unfold they attempt to survive the night coming up against a variety of threats and menace which in truth will be familiar to anyone who has watched a slasher movie over the last two decades.
