These days ‘going on a cruise’ is not so much about dressing for dinner….
Dropping you into events set between Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5 this Nintendo 3DS port has you following the exploits of Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield and their recent creation of the Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance, or BSAA. If, like me, you aren’t right up to speed on your Resident Evil canon, not to worry, you can still have a good time and not get lost within the Resident Evil universe.
Also the one thing I remember hating about previous Resident Evil games is fixed. You can move while aiming weapons this time round!
Turn based dungeon crawling, loot gathering excellence at the tip of your fingers.
Being from one of the first generations that enjoyed Games Workshop products as they found their feet and at the same time thriving on the home computer explosion along with turn based strategy. I was somewhat excited to discover Rodeo Games had combined the two things into a dungeon crawling loot hunting iOS time-sink.
Open up Warhammer Quest iOS and there’s no mistaking the style of the game, visually it reeks of Games Workshop and the Warhammer universe. There is a lot of love poured into this game, the cutscenes, the animated towns that pop up and the glorious hi-def visuals in the dungeons themselves are quite beautiful. Continue reading →
A third person team based co-op preferred shooter, does the world need another?
Take four special ops specialists with particular skill trees, spoon on some irreverent humour and throw them in a twisty plot of subterfuge. Add to that the mysterious alien substance known as Fuse and suddenly life is like a box of combos. The game is an interesting bag of tricks, there are things about it that are pretty exciting, well, at least lots of fun and there are things about it that just feel perhaps a little insulting considering it is 2013 and we’ve been playing games like this for a while now.
Fuse is shiny, the graphics are bold, colourful and remind me very much of the style of Timesplitters, the writing does its job and the voice acting is suitable. Initial stages take you deep into an underground base on a rescue, where you come across the Fuse weapons, all four of them that are tailor designed for each of your team. Handy coincidence? Check.

If you really needed a reason to get back into Borderlands 2, this is it.
What goes on inside the mind of Krieg the Psycho? Why did he become a Vault Hunter in the first place? Do his pecs, in fact, have pecs? Find out the answers to all these questions in this original Gearbox short film.
Underground, overground, there’s no Wombling here, welcome to the harsh reality of the Metro.
So a year after dealing to the ‘Dark Ones’, Artyom is tired of kicking back in his home Metro. Seemingly plagued by the act of terrorism he committed against the ‘Dark Ones’, when he hears of a survivor he is compelled to hunt it down with the belief it is the key to saving not only himself but all of humanity. Unfortunately not everyone in the Metro system will share his beliefs.
Those who have played the first game, Metro 2033, will know what to expect here. Metro: Last Light is familiar territory with the tweaks and bug fixes you would expect in a follow up title. For those who haven’t played Metro 2033, I recommend you grab it and play it through before getting in to Metro: Last light. Not only because it will bring you up to speed with the story and characters, but because it is a mighty fine game in its own right. And lets face it, it would be a crime to miss such a decent game at the price it can be found at these days. Continue reading →
