Sable – PS5 Review

Sable is the debut game from developer Shedworks, a 2 man team from London partnered with publisher Raw Fury (Flat Eye, Cassette Beasts). The game is a sci-fi open-world adventure with the single player experience uncovered through exploring and solving puzzles. The titular character is a young woman undergoing a rite of passage which involves travelling across the desert planet Midden. Previously released on Windows, Xbox One & Xbox Series S/X last year, Sable is now also available on PS5. The journey matters more than the destination in Sable I wasn't aware of Sable at its original release but I was pleased to get the chance to review it on PS5.

Gotham Knights – PS5 Review

Gotham Knights is an open-world action RPG from developer Warner Bros. Games Montréal & publisher Warner Bros. Much like the Arkham series we see these caped crusaders fighting crime across Gotham while contending with supervillains, criminals and police alike. Based on DC's Batman: Gotham Knights comic series it is a fresh take on a Batman video game with characters we know and love or love to hate. There is some controversy around the game with Batgirl's in-game bio. In this Gotham, The Killing Joke is canon including Barbara Gordon being paralysed and becoming Oracle. The in-game bio states she overcame this with hard work which has offended the non-able-bodied community. The news that Gotham Knights wouldn't be released on PS4 and Xbox One will be upsetting for gamers who haven'...

Zombie Cure Lab – PC Preview

Zombie Cure Lab is a new sandbox lab builder developed by Thera Bytes GmbH and published by Aerosoft GmbH. Gather, build and survive the ever-growing waves of zombie hordes in this Colony Sim/Base Building/RTS mashup. Friends, NOT Foe! As the title might suggest, Zombie Cure Lab sees players capture and cure - not kill, zombies. So zombies are... friends...? An unusual twist on the concept of zombie games. One that I for one couldn't wait to try out! Join me below to see my thoughts on how this concept played out in the early access demo. Gameplay As with most RTS base builders, players must manage resources and workers as well as survive enemy waves whilst building & expanding their base. Resources include food, wood, stone and metal - all the usual things we've come to expect fro...

Infinite Links Review

Developed by Exe-Create and published by KEMCO. Infinite Links is an action turn-based RPG. It was released on the 12th of May 2022 for the Xbox One, Series S/X, Playstation 4/5, PC, and Nintendo Switch. The forces of evil are strong in this one so caution ahead of this Infinite Links Review. Infinite Links - It's A Final Chrono Crossover Here we are with another RPG. The trend is rising and rising and if I'm being honest I really don't mind. I grew up playing RPGs like Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest as well as favourites like Grandia and Chrono Trigger. But during recent times the abundance of RPGs being made makes a lot of them really poor in gameplay. Does Infinite Links fit into that category? Well, I'm here to tell you.

The Sims 4: Carnaval Streetwear Kit Review

The Sims 4 recently had a new dlc drop in the form of the Brazillian-inspired Carnaval Streetwear Kit. At £4.99, is this kit a must-have for the hardcore players? Dance Like Nobody's Watching! With the word "Carnaval" playing havoc with my spellchecker as it is Portuguese for "Carnival", let's see what this is all about! Gameplay The Carnaval Streetwear kit has been designed in partnership with Brazilian drag queen and singer-songwriter Pabllo Vittar. Together they have drawn up a wardrobe of clothing and accessories to celebrate the vibrancy of Brazil's iconic Carnaval.
