Thoughts on the Final Fantasy 7 Remake

Y’all have to look at the big picture here. Nothing worth fighting for was ever won without sacrifice. — Barret Wallace It felt like I had a weird mental journey through playing the Final Fantasy 7 remake. It started with me absolutely loving the opening scenes — the slow aerial shot into the mega-city of Midgar; the beautiful re-imagined image of Aerith down the alleyway. It ended too with me absolutely loving it — despite the fact that it covers…

But all manner of hell will greet them on their path

Welcome to Hanwell — first impressions

Starting point in the morgue

Waking up in a morgue and taking your first steps in the dark, dank blood-splattered underground is a great introduction to any horror game.

Resident Evil : Project Resistance CLOSED BETA — my thoughts

Experiment successful end screen

I couldn’t believe how lucky I was to open my email two weeks ago and find an invitation to the upcoming multiplayer game Resident Evil: Project Resistance. I had heard it referred to as “Resident Evil but done like Dead by Daylight”. But I’m here to tell you that it is so much more than that. I’ve always loved the classic Resident Evil games (from the original through to Code: Veronica – I haven’t played any more till Resident Evil…

First steps into No Man’s Sky

No Man's Sky_20190619153255

I am absolutely loving No Man’s Sky. The planets I’ve visited are absolutely stunning! My first base is on a snowy planet I discovered. I called the planet “Ice Bonga”. The cold storms get pretty nippy on there. After warp driving to a neighbouring star system, I found another new planet. This is probably my favourite planet yet so have decided to set up camp. I have named this new planet “Plush Bonga” and have begun the base building.

Until Dawn Rush of Blood on Playstation VR

Until Dawn Rush of Blood is so much fun to play. The concept of being essentially trapped in a roller coaster cart adds a new dimension to what is possible with a horror game. You have no option to just stand in a corner and catch your breath before moving on. You are either fighting for your life or being moved ever forward into the increasingly hellish world. Remains true to the original Until Dawn is a stand out game…

Life is Strange: Before the storm episode 3 (Hell is Empty)

It doesn’t seem like too long ago since Life is Strange Before the Storm was first announced. Now here I am writing up my thoughts on it’s heart-felt, bittersweet conclusion. In this final episode we follow Chloe as she works to uncover the truth, and whereabouts, of Rachel Amber’s birth mother. As she does so, she manages to uncover some dark truths about certain characters. As we’ve learnt from previous events in this game, most things can’t simply come down…

Rise of the Tomb Raider Blood Ties on PSVR

Rise of the Tomb Raider Blood Ties came with the base game as part of the Tomb Raider 20 year celebration. I have previously written about my love for Rise of the Tomb Raider. However, I was not prepared for just how amazing the Blood Ties DLC would be in PlayStation VR. The same blood ties story Blood Ties on PlayStation VR is the same story as the normal version. The only difference is that you get to see through…

Resident Evil Kitchen Demo on PSVR

The Resident Evil Kitchen Demo is a little taster that Capcom put out around the release of Resident Evil 7. It shows off, in its short five minutes of game play, the pure horror potential for Playstation VR, and indeed VR in general. What happens in the Resident Evil Kitchen Demo? You spend the entirety of the demo strapped to an old wooden chair in a completely run-down kitchen. The Kitchen gave me similar vibes to the Peacock house from the…
