When 300 words is more than enough
The God Eater series is not something I am familiar with, lets have that out in the open. As a sci-fi soap opera, I’m sure it would be interesting to delve into, but as it stands being a virgin in the God Eater universe I’m a little more dazed and confused than leading the charge.
The Good – There’s a deep sci-fi canon on offer if you can listen to the dialogue, and the unfeasible weapons are impressive. The bullet building feature is the highlight.
The Bad – Angsty teen styled dialogue, overly complex controls and too much to remember.
The Ugly – The graphics need a decent feed. Combat missions are way too short.
The combat is fun to a point, but given some of the controls and the reliance on remembering how or when to use certain combos it never really gets past the hack and slash approach for me.
Traditional long format reviews
I like Russia. Not so much for the long history of political intrigue or its civil rights abuses, but for its tough people and their underlying ability to just get shit done with very little. The Metro games are about survival in a post nuclear war Russia, and as I just alluded, not surviving in some luxurious capitalist-pig fallout shelter…….but like a tough as nails Russian, on little to no resources, ammunition and intel.
Now, its not lost on me that the developer 4A Games is in fact Ukrainian not Russian. However, as a nation with a long standing connection to Russia, (for both good and bad reasons) it gives them the unique ability to give Western gamers a glimpse into what a post-apocalyptic Mother-Russia might look like. Suffice is to say they know what they are doing and the end result is… brilliant and terrifying.

Occasional Features, maybe off topic, maybe news, maybe opinion pieces, mostly interesting.
Anthem will be with us by the end of the month and what better way to celebrate it than give us a surprise Short Movie by sci-fi stalwart Neil Blomkamp (District 9 for example).
Given the design and nature of his movies, bringing the Anthem world and its Javelins to life must have been a no-brainer on both sides.
There is currently a teaser up on youtube.
The full short will be available on the 14th.
Gadgets, Gifts and stuff that we like that isn't a game.
Nacon are the relative new kids on the block, as far as Video Game accessories go, but the French company seems to go from strength to strength in the field, first with its excellent PS4 controller, now the “Daija” (Japanese for “Large Serpent”) is here to challenge for a podium spot in the popular Fight Stick market.
Check out the Video Review – where we give the rundown on the Good, the Bad and the Ugly parts of this stick!
