One of 2015′s Best PC Games Is Heading To Consoles

Developer TinyBguild Games, also known for Punch Club, is bringing the party to consoles. Party Hard is set for release on both Xbox One and PS4 later this year. Party Hard is a fair mix of strategy, stealth and silliness, resulting in some pretty hilarious moment. The PC version was packed with various levels and unlockables, encouraging players to experiment and play around. Each level possessed its own sense of character, keeping the experience fresh.

Solid, But Too Familiar – Fortified Review (PC/Xbox One)

Solid, But Too Familiar – Fortified Review (PC/Xbox One)

*PC Version reviewed* Tower defence games have been a popular staple of the multiplayer market for the last decade or so. Various attempts have been made to spice up the genre, with only a few achieving any degree of success. Fortified is the next game to try its hand at changing things up. Drenched in 1950′s B-movie aesthetic, Fortified combines third-person shooting with tower defence Strategy. From the off, it’s the visual style that stands out. Bright colours wash into cartoon-like character models, resulting in that 50′s campy sci-fi look. Fortified uses its looks to inject a sense of character into a pretty standard concept. Flying saucers and square robotic...

Firewatch Is A Triumph In Crafting Human Relationships

Firewatch Is A Triumph In Crafting Human Relationships

Firewatch succeeds at many things, but it excels in one area in particular. Many games have tried to break through the notion that the player is not just playing a game, they’re experiencing something much more human. It’s not rare for a number of games to batter their players with forced attempts at drama and emotion. Overly dramatic scenes and exchanges we see in TV soap operas. Firewatch does not do this, it’s much more organic. The conversations between Firewatch’s two main characters don’t come off as acted. There’s no awkward wording or stumbling attempts to build drama. Henry and Delilah exchange words like two human beings, not like two...

A Beautiful Mysterious Modern Classic – Firewatch Review (PC/PS4)

A Beautiful Mysterious Modern Classic – Firewatch Review (PC/PS4)

*Review based on PC version*   Narrative video games are nothing all that new these days. These types of games offer experiences that others rarely can. It’s a very risky style, the smallest fault can profoundly effect the entire experience. With this in mind, approaching Campo Santo’s Firewatch was a curious affair. Firewatch wastes no time when it comes to crafting its story. The initial 45 minutes is spent world building, painting the picture for the player to appreciate it. There’s no cold opening that leaves people asking questions, nor is a basic motive made  crystal clear. The only thing that is known, is what led protagonist Henry to working...

Rainbow Six: Siege Black Ice Update Causes Horrific Bugs

Rainbow Six: Siege Black Ice Update Causes Horrific Bugs

The latest Rainbow Six: Siege update has fixed, tweaked and added a number of things. Thatcher finally has a shotgun, objectives are listed on Operator selection screens and there’s a nice new map. It’s not all that’s been added, there’s a few bugs and glitches currently doing the rounds. While a few bugs and glitches were to be expected, some of these new issues are pretty bad. The first major bug is head shots do little to no damage at times. Pounding bullets into someone’s skull should, and used to, kill them. Since the Black Ice update, headshots have became utterly inconsistent. As you would assume, the headshot issue is...
