Golf Story – Why it’s very N64

Posted on October 4, 2017 at 3:24 am

If you’ve played Golf Story, then you’ll probably know that it’s very clearly inspired by Mario Golf on the Game Boy Color, which shares similarities with the original N64 game. It’s a real nice throwback to vintage gaming, but it’s actually incredibly weird and we’ll explain why. Firstly, the biggest trait of this game is its canny sense of humour. There’s not much of an actual plot, beyond wanting to be a professional golfer, but getting there involves a lot more than just playing golf for a very long time. So you find yourself starting conversations with cavemen and peculiar characters, so this really isn’t a golfing game in that sense. It’s designed to be fun, weird and quirky and that’s exactly what you get. If you’re looking for a friendly game that will keep you entertained and amused, you may want to try Golf Story, it really is a barrel of laughs.

Monster Hunter: World

Posted on September 23, 2017 at 1:53 pm

Monster Hunter: World is the is the fifth primary title in the Monster Hunter franchise by Capcom, and it’s set to be released towards the end of January next year. The new title is said to be more complex than ever before with a new engine, more characters and faster gameplay, so we’re expecting big things. As was the case with the other titles, as the player you take on the role of a hunter that seeks and slays ferocious beasts in heart-pounding battles that unfold across the vast ever-changing landscape. It’s therefore up to you to utilise the surrounding environment and wildlife to your advantage, finding clever ways to take down and capture monsters. This game is not for the faint hearted, and it opens with heavy action from the very start, so be prepared! The visuals are absolutely superb too, so the beasts look even more lifelike.

Red Dead Redemption 2: What’s the latest?

Posted on August 24, 2017 at 2:14 pm

Talk about Red Dead Redemption has cooled in recent months, and many gamers are concerned by the lack of noise surrounding this highly anticipated game. So what’s the deal?

Well, Rockstar Games has confirmed the game will now arrive in Spring 2018, which is much later than originally anticipated, and though this has annoyed some people, there’s no doubt the excitement and hype around this big title will begin early next year. As frequent gamers ourselves, we’re always looking at the games set to be released over the next month or so, and with Red Dead Redemption 2 still a long way off, there’s not much to talk about right now. When we know more on the plot, the characters, the gameplay changes and visuals, you’ll be the first to know. There is also likely to be big voice actors and there will be lots to discuss early next year, but for now we all just need to bide our time and wait patiently.

Prey-PS4; Gaming review

Posted on July 17, 2017 at 1:19 pm

Prey for Ps4 is the perfect marriage between science fiction and art. The gaming is set in a space station called Talos that is revolving the moon in 2032. The prelude to the game explains how a human experiment goes wrong and now you are stuck there. Aliens overrun the station and to survival, you have to either run away or kill them. Sincerely, it is an interesting game picking its motivation from all the important places.

Prey is both fresh and emotionally involving. Exploring the gaming environment feels great and is completely immersing. A danger is always hanging in the air. To deal with the danger, you have two approaches the combat way or the stealth method depending on your gaming style. Personally, I prefer a blend of both.

The story mode before the game play gets you in the zone. Interesting characters that keep the game moving, later on, are introduced. This creates a rapport between them and you from the word go. Additionally, the twists in the storyline are totally unexpected they leave you questioning everything.

PES 2018: What to expect?

Posted on June 12, 2017 at 5:55 am

It’s always tricky to write about football games like FIFA and Pro Evolution Soccer but we’re going to try and give you an insight into the latter here. Pro Evo has always just had minor improvements with every release, so it can be tricky to get excited about it, but that’s only until you play the game!

All of these minor improvements work together to give the game a completely new feel this time, whether that be more realistic tackles, more control over runs and passes or improvements with regards to the realistic features of players. In 2018, the gameplay is more real. It’s not quite as fast, whilst the goalkeepers are more varied in their actions. As always, it’s more difficult to work clear shots on goal, however, that’s really part of the fun. You have to spend some time learning this new engine before you can call yourself a Pro, but on the whole this game is a big improvement on the last.

Dragon Quest Heroes II – Our thoughts on this action adventure

Posted on May 27, 2017 at 1:07 pm

Dragon Quest Heroes II is everything you expect it to be if you played the first game. It’s fast paced with bold visuals and tough characters. That said, not everything in this game is similar to the last release , and one of the major changes is the type of adventure. This time you’re trying to restore peace in a very chaotic world, with monsters coming at you left, right and centre! What’s great about this game is that you can have up to 4 players in a team, working together to defeat those scary monsters. With many lovable characters too, and plenty of enemies, this game has it all, whilst there are some new faces in the mix this time round too. Though Dragon Quest Heroes is never going to be a game that challenges at the top of the gaming charts, it’s still lovable for people of all ages, from children to young teens and adults.

The Deer God – Oddly addictive

Posted on April 29, 2017 at 12:09 pm

Humans have always had a special liking to hunting, with the deer being one of the most harassed animals over the years. So you can imagine how horrible it would be, to be the deer being hunted! The Deer God for PS Vita is a game that lets you experience just that. The setting is that you are a hunter in pursuit of deer, when the Deer God transforms you into a deer and the tables are turned.

So you start off as a fawn in the 3D world and grow up as a deer. In this unusual thriller, you’re taken to an entirely different world. One that is randomly generated having all life forms including the bear, tiger, rabbits and caterpillars. You have to survive the nature, the dangers of the night and the adventures of the day. You even have to survive a hunter. Being a survival game, there is no set goal or an end to the game. However, there are environmental puzzles and tasks and it will be enough to keep coming back for more.

Deer God that’s a good game!

Nioh: A must buy game in 2017

Posted on January 31, 2017 at 1:33 am

For anyone who has gotten their hands on a PlayStation 4 in the past few months, being on the lookout for new games to play (and platinum) is a constant thing. There’s no doubt that 2017 will bring some awesome new games, but one game to get particularly excited about is Nioh, which was developed by Koei Tecmo Games.

Nioh is a new role-playing game that drops on February 7th of 2017. In the game, players play as a warrior named William, and must survive in Japan during a brutal civil war. The player has more to worry about than war, though, because he or she must also battle ghastly demons and other warriors who are dedicated to being the last man standing.

A key aspect of the game that makes it stand out even more is the graphics. The graphics within the game are vibrant and life-like with out-of-this-word special effects. The demons are truly grotesque and if showed to the wrong audience, might even cause nightmares. Okay we’re joking but they are good. To get a grasp on how amazing the graphics are, you can find gameplay stills online. Speaking of demons, though, there are more than one type of demon in the game, and each is defeated in a different way.

As of right now, there is no word on whether or not the game will be developed for other gaming platforms. For now, it’s exclusively a PlayStation 4 game, so gamers without a PlayStation 4 are really going to miss out.

Overall, Nioh is pretty much a must buy game for anyone who loves a challenge, war, or big swords and Samurai warriors. If those aren’t your style and you prefer to admire the art within a game, you’ll be pleasantly surprised. As long as you aren’t squeamish, this game is bound to have something of interest to you.

Happy gaming!

Our thoughts on the most anticipated mobile game

Posted on December 12, 2016 at 7:29 am

If you don’t know what we’re talking about then you probably haven’t browsed your mobile app store recently. It is, of course, Mario Run. It’s safe to say that we’ve all been expecting big things with Nintendo taking a seriously long time to release this game, but so far it hasn’t lived up to its hype. So why is it such a failure? Well, the biggest problem is that it’s just too simple. It’s a one-touch game like many but after playing 10 levels we can confirm there aren’t’ many challenges. The old Mario games were annoyingly tricky. That’s why they were so addictive. The fact that you’d have to start all over again made it quite fun, but the new game is just a bit more of a cuter, baby version, so the hardcore gamers may struggle to enjoy it. We’d say this one is more for young children, but we hope Nintendo make it more fun and difficult with future updates.
