Until Then – PS5 Review

Until Then is a single-player visual novel narrative game from developer Polychroma Games. The game is set in a fictional version of the Philippines. Though I don't live in the Philippines, I found myself deeply immersed in its local culture and learned a lot about its people, while also experiencing a heartfelt narrative that truly resonates. Until Then? Its around 5 minutes and 51 seconds After incredibly positive demo reception, Until Then was released on PS5 and PC on June 25th, 2024. The game is a difficult one to review due to its narrative nature, but i'll do my best to not reveal anything big. There will be some light narrative spoilers. Gameplay Until Then is a visual novel with minimal interactivity, meaning the best you’ll get in ways of gameplay is the x button and occasion...

Killer Klowns From Outer Space – PS5 Review

Killer Klowns from Outer Space: The Game is a 7v3 asymmetrical horror game based on the 1988 movie of the same name, releasing on June 4th, 2024, on Steam, Xbox Series S/X and PS5 can Killer Klowns fill that Friday the 13th shaped hole in our hearts? Ki-Ki-Ki-Honk-Honk-Honk I love a good Asym game, sinking thousands of hours into dead by daylight, Texas chainsaw massacre, and others. the loss of Friday the 13th the game was a devastating loss to the community, especially for those who relished stalking players in atmospheric maps as the menacing Jason Voorhees, or as a victim evading his pursuit. Thankfully, Killer Klowns From Outer Space: The Game (mostly) succeeds in being as chaotic and fun, and even more so in some areas. Gameplay Killer Klowns From Outer Space: The Game, or as I’l...

V Rising – PS5 Review

V Rising is a game about a vampire who really needs to get up an escalator by any means necessary. It was released on PS5 And PC on June 11th after an early access period lasting two years. You really are the most devious vampire... I enjoyed what I played of V Rising in its early access state, but felt like the more linear progression system held it back, how has my opinion changed since? Find out! Gameplay V Rising is an online survival game first and foremost with a lot of inspiration from the Diablo series evident in its HUD, isometric view, and artstyle. The game may look similar to the Diablo series and an ARPG at first (even pointed out by a fellow writer when I was typing up this review) but V Rising carves out its niche with its survival gameplay. Survival Mechanics Now ...

Jack Holmes: Master of Puppets – PS5 Review

Let's dive into a new horror game coming to PlayStation 5, called Jack Holmes: Master of Puppets. This new survival horror is already out on Steam but will be arriving on PS5 on May 2nd. I couldn't tell you the price but from checking Steam, I'd be guessing either £9.99 or £11.99.  Who's really pulling the strings here? We step into the shoes of the titular Jack Holmes, He gets a letter from his Aunt. The letter asks him to investigate the disappearance of a man named Frederick B. Since Jack hasn't had a job for a while he accepts it and heads out, but as we know with any horror he gets more than he bargained for.  Gameplay The game itself doesn’t have a lot in the ways of gameplay mechanics.

Hole In One - What The Golf Played here on PS5 the game is out now and also available on PS4, Nintendo Switch, PC, Linux and iOS.

Planet Zoo: Console Edition – PS5 Review

Planet Zoo: Console Edition is a zoo builder and management sim game where you build a safe space for numerous animals big and small. It was developed and published by the British company Frontier Developments (Planet Coaster, F1 Manager 2023). It is undoubtedly a spiritual successor to Zoo Tycoon and Zoo Tycoon 2, which the team at Frontier brought us. With my review based on the PS5 version the game is also available now on Xbox series X|S. You can check out Kevin's review of the PC version and how it compares. There's a place for all animals big and small in Planet Zoo I was excited to play Planet Zoo as it eventually made its way from PC to consoles after 5 years.
