Glitchspace: Hands-On

Posted by on Sep 9, 2014

Glitchspace excites me mentally. I love the idea of programming but didn’t really have the capacity to learn it or use it meaningfully. Glitchspace uses semi-simple...

Hands-On: Hyrule Warriors

Jul 8, 2014

Adam: I’d never played a Dynasty Warriors game so didn’t really have too clear an idea what to expect from this and, while it’s not your typical Zelda game, it might just be the best thing I saw all day. Hyrule Warriors takes the Zelda world and throws hordes upon hordes of enemies into it until it’s positively flooded with angry beasties. I played as...

Looks like The Sims 4 began with Sim City-like DRM

Jul 8, 2014

EA and Maxis can’t do anything right lately, according to many fans of The Sims. The recent removal of several features of the game from The Sims 4 – including that ever so important transitionary period, the toddler stage – has angered them. Understandably so when their main complaint is that they’ll sell it to them later, a practice...

Format: PS4 (version reviewed), PS3, 360, PC Unleashed: Out Now Publisher: Focus Home Interactive Developer: Cyanide Players: 1-2 (offline) Site: http://www.cycling-manager.com/ Admit it; your favourite vehicle in GTA V is the bicycle.

Hands-On: Bayonetta 2 and Bayonetta Too

Jul 4, 2014

Adam: Bayonetta returns – only better – and remains absolutely, wonderfully, enticingly stark-raving bonkers, perhaps even more so than the original. I only managed to play the prologue in the provided demo in which Bayonetta, armed with a giant purple scythe, did battle with monstrosities atop a fighter jet as more dropped from a parallel aircraft,...

Hands-On: Splatoon

Jul 3, 2014

Adam: I’ve been excited about Splatoon since its E3 unveiling, enthralled by the idea of Nintendo’s take on a genre that had seemingly been run dry to the point where I was completely apathetic to it: the multiplayer shooter. Fortunately Nintendo has injected it with all the fun I’ve come to expect from the company, eschewing the tired traditions that...

  UPDATE: We had some great entries, and competition was as stiff as a twelve hour old Nazi corpse. In the end, the prize was awarded to… Gareth Gallagher of County Antrim. We’ll let his entry speak for itself: A survival mode in which you play Hitler’s remaining testicle, avoiding bullets by contracting and re-dropping. Our review of...

Munin: Review

Munin: Review

Jul 2, 2014

Munin is a puzzle platformer with a heavy Norse mythological theme running throughout. Norse mythology is pretty exciting business – not that you can tell that through the story told in Munin. If Munin is one thing, then that thing is anything but exciting. Munin has you collecting feathers to regain your Raven form after Loki turns you (Munin, Odin’s...
