Knack II continues the adventures of our titular sentient collection of pointy things, and takes him on new adventures to fight more goblins and evil nasties. The original game was released as a PS4 launch title back in 2013, and although we did not get a chance to review it, we have the sequel here to make up for the lack of Knack.
Nioh is the modern equivalent of “like Dark Soul, but…”, so I’m going to try eschewing all mention of Dark Souls in this review (Ed: you’ve failed twice already) and try to review Nioh on its own merits. No more mention of Dark Souls (Ed: thrice). Let’s go back to the Sengoku period in Japan’s past to track down some demons.
Back in 2010, we reviewed the original Darksiders for Playstation 3. You can read our review here, but the basic gist was that it was a decent game worth your time and money. This being 2016, the year of the remaster, we naturally have Darksiders: Warmastered, because of course we do. This review is going to be covering the PS4 version specifically.
Nathan Drake has been kicking around our PlayStations since 2007, blowing our minds away with outstanding visuals and storytelling. Uncharted 4 is the final game in the series, and is aptly sub-titled A Thief’s End. Let’s get our adventure on and hang around a few cliff-faces with Drake as we review this game.
Ratchet and Clank originally debuted on the Playstation 2 back in 2002 to huge acclaim, partly due to the humour, partly due to the platforming design, but mostly due to the insane array of weapons you can shoot things in the face with. Numerous sequels and HD remasters later, the game is getting a movie based off the first game. This naturally means that the first game needs a reboot. Grab your weapons, unplug Mr Zurkon, and come along as I review this new rebooted Ratchet and Clank.
The Legend of Zelda is 30 years old this year, and to celebrate, Nintendo are re-releasing an HD remaster of the first Wii Legend of Zelda game, also incidentally the last Gamecube Legend of Zelda game: Twilight Princess. The original Twilight Princess was released in 2006, ten years ago, so a remaster is definitely due. The HD remaster has a bunch of new features, including stamps, extra dungeons, amiibo support, and fully high-def updated graphics. Join me on an updated adventure around Hyrule as we swing swords, fling arrows, and kill bokoblins.
Rakoo is a fuzzy critter on a mission for love, so naturally he recruits his friends as wingmen of sorts in his quest to woo his beloved. I grab some friends and controllers and see if I can help this hapless creature find his soul’s dearest wish.
The new Mad Max movie featured precious little of Max himself, so to fill the gap in the story, we have the video game that focuses almost exclusively on him. Let’s get set for some sun, sand, ridiculous cars, and brutal mayhem as I skip across the dunes to bring you this review.
Devil’s Third by Valhalla Studios is one of those games that was heavily anticipated, probably because it’s unusual to see an over-the-top violent game like it on a Nintendo console. The game has had a troubling history, what with game engine shifts and publishers shutting down. Still, it’s here now, and we’ve gone a few rounds with Ivan to see what the devil is up.
You all know by now that the bat-PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight is so bat-ly gimped that it had to be forcefully, vengefully even, pulled from the online batstores. Thankfully, I’m playing one of the decent versions. I become the terror that flaps in the night. No, wait…wrong series. I become the dark detective in the night, and prowl through Gotham’s streets to bring you this batreview of Batman: Arkham batKnight.
