When 300 words is more than enough
We thought it was time to send Guy into a Mortal Kombat to prove his worth, and surprisingly it didn’t FINISH HIM!
I will be the first to put my hand up and say, I can at times be a bit stuck in my ways when it comes to the types of video games I play. Shooters, RPGs and short-form Indie experiences tend to be my ‘jam’ these days.
That said, in recent months I dove back into a genre I hadn’t touched for almost 10 years, Fighting Games, and I have really bloody enjoyed it.
Traditional long format reviews
I’m hunkered down in the second floor of a bombed-out building in war-torn Berlin. It’s 1945, World War 2.
Out of a window to my right, I see a gaggle of German soldiers, gathered behind barricades. The troop truck they jumped out of is parked nearby. Lying on the ground is the body of a Nazi collaborator, his body limp and lifeless, taken out earlier by a sniper shot from my trusty Springfield M1903 sniper rifle. He has papers I need to retrieve – but I need to clear the area first.
Making things a tad difficult is the German tank parked to my left, its turret trained on my position. I start to sweat and weigh up my options.
I decide I’ll take out the soldiers, one by one, with my sniper rifle then deal with the tank – and this is where Sniper Elite V2’s single greatest feature comes into play: The focused sniper shot.

Occasional Features, maybe off topic, maybe news, maybe opinion pieces, mostly interesting.
We recently had the opportunity to send cheeky chappie Darren Price on an hands on adventure with new PSVR title Blood and Truth, and it turned better than a Bank Holiday in the Queen Vic.
“I recently entered a world of old lags, muppets and geezers for a trip to the East-End London with PlayStation AU and their up-coming PSVR game, Blood & Truth.
Blood & Truth comes to us from SIE London Studio, the same developers that knocked out the VR Worlds anthology title for PSVR. The new game is an extension of their acclaimed The London Heist sequence that was the highlight of VR Worlds.
If you are familiar with Guy Ritchie films like Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch, you are on the right track. This is a game chock-full of violent Cockney villains, so expect loads of tasty-looking, tooled-up geezers, lots of swearing and comedy East-End accents.”
Gadgets, Gifts and stuff that we like that isn't a game.
The lack of a real first party “Elite” controller on the PS4 has always been a pet peeve of mine, the Xbox has the stunning Xbox Elite controller and us poor PS4 gamers have been stuck with ‘pretty good’ wannabees for years now.
Well things have changed and we have had our prayers answered. Nacon have improved upon the original Nacon Revolution in pretty much every way, but that said, it still has a few niggles too.
When you get down to it, it is a great feeling, well designed and stunningly well made bit of gaming kit but to get the full run down on the Good, the Bad and the Ugly, take a look at our latest Video Review below.
