MXGP3 is the imaginatively-titled sequel to last year’s MXGP2 (reviewed by us over here). If you haven’t read the last review (or don’t particularly want to), MXGP is a series of realistic motocross racer games developed by Milestone games. The games are noted for their licensed franchises and queerly difficult learning curve. MXGP3 boasts 18 international tracks to ride on,132 real riders, and 24 different kinds of bikes ranging between two and four stroke engines. Right, that’s the down low, let’s get into the review!
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.
Resident Evil is arguably one of the most successful and popular survival horror games out there, and even though later games in the series have been of arguable scariness, the first few did an amazing job. The original game for PlayStation 1 came out in 1996, making the series officially 20 years old. The Resident Evil Origins Collection contains HD remakes of Resident Evil (the first game, since it comes without a number), and the prequel, titled Resident Evil Zero. I get my S.T.A.R.S. gear ready, grab my zombie killing gear, and head for Raccoon City to kill some evil (un)dead.
Gravity Rush first made its appearance on the PS Vita back in 2012, and it was dubbed one of the best games you’ve never played. It featured a gravity-shifting lass named Kat in her adventures in the fictional town of Hekseville. In time for the sequel due later this year, we have a PS4 HD remaster of the game, so I got my gravity going to find out how it matches up with the original.
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.
Tearaway Unfolded is a re-master of the the PS Vita game, Tearaway. In the original, you use the Vita’s unique controls to manipulate the world around the character, making things move, bounce, and come to life. The game obviously had to be remapped to better fit the DualShock 4, so let’s cut and snip and pull and curl to find out how the new game works.
Pixar’s fifteenth film, Inside Out, takes place within the mind of 11-year old Riley Anderson, and focuses on the five main emotions within her head: Joy, Sadness, Fear, Anger, and Disgust. Let me take you on a journey of the mind as we find out what the voices are telling Riley.
From Software are famous for their extremely hard games, and from Demon’s Souls to Dark Souls to Dark Souls II, you know you’re not going to have an easy time of this developer’s games. And like button-mashing masochists, everyone keeps going back for more punishment. Myself included. And this brutality is why we’re going to review Bloodborne, From Software’s first PS4 outing.
Hands up those of you who had never heard of the Guardians of the Galaxy before this year. That’s a lot of hands, but not as many as I’d expected. Those who follow Marvel’s comic universe—and the Avengers in particular—will be more than a little aware of the Guardians, but those who know Marvel for simply Spider-Man or The Avengers have something wonderful in store. Come, let me tell you about it.
