Ruins Magus – Meta Quest 2 Review

CharacterBank inc bring us the world of Ruins Magus, a JRPG consisting of magic amongst the ruins. We have established that it is a clever title, but the question remains, is it a good game? Time to find the biggest hat I own and dive in. Ruins Magus - Magic or Ruins? Gameplay Ruins Magus starts like most games, an introduction to who you are, a setting of the scene and a gentle tutorial to get used to the controls. The movement system is stick driven, so no teleportation, it is slick and whilst I admit to sometimes submitting to nausea, I had no such experience. I always prefer to physically turn rather than use the rotate feature, but it is always good to have the choice. The premise of Ruins Magus is very simple, enter the ruins, kill the enemies and return with treasure or info...

Cities: VR Review

Cities: Skylines has been around since 2015. It is in effect a highly polished version of Maxis' Sim City.

You get to design your own city from a blank canvas and are in full control from the moment you start building roads and zoning areas to build either residential, commercial or industrial premises.

After The Fall – Quest 2 Review

Welcome to my review of After The Fall. This is a new VR game and was developed and published by Vertigo Games (creators of Arizona sunshine). This is a game full of potential, especially when it is like Left 4 Dead and Back 4 Blood. A VR version of those games was definitely needed. Now I can actually feel like I'm there slaying the zombies in a snowy apocalypse. Left 4… Oh Wait, After The Fall As previously stated, the game structure is quite similar to Left 4 Dead and the likes. However, this is not a bad thing due to the increasing pressure of those games to come back. You know the ‘’old’’ go from A to B but have safe houses scattered in the middle.  This is not a bad plot either, the safe houses in the middle can be used to spend your harvest (the currency dropped from zom...
