No Man’s Sky – the non review

No Man's Sky_20160820021409It’s been a while, a while since we were wowed by No Man’s Sky being revealed at E3 and a longer while since I cut my teeth in space dreaming of a game like this. There’s no doubt the unique selling point of NMS is the scale of this operatic vision. Sean Murray and the team at Hello Games have delivered what they set out to do, a near infinite gaming playground that humbles you into submission, it offers up a diluted offering of space travel and interplanetary jumping that sits happily in the realm of any hokum sci-fi.

No Man's Sky_20160811214411Murray has a vision, that much is clear and with such vastness for people to play in he has delivered a sizeable chunk of activity and potential to keep a near infinite number of space travellers entertained. There will obviously be attention goldfish that will fall away once they think they’ve seen everything – probably the same people that couldn’t live without Pokemon Go a few weeks ago. Then there will be the others, the players that have been yearning for an experience like this either since they heard of it or since they played Elite for nights on end in the back of a wardrobe.

Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens review, Xbox One

TFA_packshotIt’s been a long while since I ventured into a console Lego game and it was a pleasant surprise to see that the calibre of these long standing, family friendly titles has never been better. Playing through Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens co-op with my 11yr old son was brilliant fun, and will undoubtedly be a great shared gaming experience we will both remember.

Long-time Lego games developer ‘Travellers Tales’ clearly love the source material, taking great care to maintain the Star Warsyness of the game, but have also taken some well placed liberties to integrate some clever puzzles and co-op centric gameplay. Over the 8-10hrs of the campaign my son and I were actually reliving the movie, all be it with a Lego twist.

Tricky Towers, PS4 Review

TrickyTowersLogoTricky Towers is an interesting little game, it has a pedigree with relatives in the mobile world and is the brainchild of Netherlands devs WeirdBeard. All good so far.

It’s also heading the PS Plus selection for August 2016, which may or may not win hearts.

At its heart Tricky Towers is a reverse take on Tetris, taking the drop puzzler out of the confines of its narrow play area and unleashing the laws of physics. The base game is all about surviving long enough to build the highest stack of blocks before they come tumbling down quicker than a Jenga stack in a room full of drunken hipsters.
