Final Fantasy VII: Remake (PS4) Review

Final Fantasy VII Remake

It’s funny how I’ve only been running this blog for five years, and for a good chunk of those years I wasn’t even covering games, and yet here we are once again covering a PS4 remake of a PS1 game I’ve already covered on the site! Admittedly, this is less a complete remake and more of a partial remake… that’s also a sequel? Sort of? Well, either way it really fun to play, and that’s the main thing! Let’s take a closer look!

Hitman (PS4) Review

Hitman 2016

I remember playing about with some of the earlier Hitman games, specifically a demo that either came with another game or came on the front of a magazine. They were fun, but I couldn’t be bothered to get into them. Earlier this year (or late last year…) the 2016 soft reboot of the Hitman franchise became free for PS+ users such as myself, and as I knew the first Hitman film was coming up in this marathon I played through this game a short while ago so I can actually have a game to compare, even if the game itself was released long after the film in question. So is it good? Does the episodic open world idea work when you play the whole game as one entity? Let’s find out!

Super Robot Wars X (PS4) Review

Super Robot Wars X

Well… it happened again, as I knew it would. After completing Super Robot Wars V around this time last year, I said that I’d already ordered X and despite feeling burnt out I knew I’d be playing it sooner rather than later, and here we are! X had a very different feel to it due to focusing more on magic and fantasy than the more real robot-y feel of V, but it also included some fun new franchises like Gurren Lagann and Code Geass. How does it balance out? Let’s have a look!

Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate (PS4) Review

Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate

So in between Outer Worlds and Resident Evil 3 Remake I played through Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate. Now, often Warriors games are pretty crazy, but given the premise of this game can be summed up as “Odin faces off with Zeus as a group of Three Kingdoms era Chinese warriors and some Samurai from the Japanese Sengoku period get caught in the middle”, this might take the cake. Bloody fun though! Let’s take a closer look…

Resident Evil 3: Remake (PS4) Review

RE3 Remake

This all happened rather quickly (I still have one more PS4 game that I played before this to review, I guess that’ll be next week…), but that’s RE3 for you! Much like last year’s Resident Evil 2 Remake, the RE3 remake here is a stunning looking and easier to play recreation of the original game (once again already reviewed on this blog), but unlike the 2nd REmake this has some flaws, and doesn’t faithfully recreate the original 1-to-1. Is it still worth a play? Let’s find out!

The Outer Worlds (PS4) Review

The Outer Worlds

What happens when Fallout has a child with Borderlands? Super Mario Bros. 3! Ha… ha… no, wait… that’s not right. The Outer Worlds! That’s the one! Seriously, The Outer Worlds is just the Bethesda Fallout engine in all but name, with the style and colour pallet more in-line with Borderlands. That being said, those two franchises are great, so this game’s great as well, right?

Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey (PS4) Review

AC Odyssey

It’s been a little while since I posted a game review, so let’s see if we can catch up with the last few games I’ve played, starting with this! Assassin’s Creed is one of those game series I’ve been playing since the very first entry, and while the series stalled a few releases ago, Origins and especially Odyssey have really clawed the series back up to something truly worth playing… If you have 100 hours spare…

My Top 30 Games of the Decade (2010 – 2019)

Decade Top 30 Games 2010s

So this is a big one… I mean literally, making the 30 thumbnails was a pain in the arse, but I just couldn’t nail it down to just 20, and when I did 25 I thought of five more I could easily talk about and went “screw it!”. Hell, I could have easily gone to 50. So with that all being said (and the usual “these are only game I’ve played so I’m sure there are many great games left off this list” message) let’s go!

My Top 10 Games of 2019

Top 10 Games 2019

Another year, another struggle to find 10 games released in 2019 I actually played. So once again look forward to wondering why I didn’t mention “Major game release X”, the answer of which is “I’m just one man, full-time employed, so I don’t have that much time to play loads of games”. Especially when non-2019 games Super Robot Wars V and Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey ate up so much of my gaming time this year… Anyway, enjoy!

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order (PS4) Review

SW Jedi Fallen Order

Hey, hey: listen to this, right – “Jedi: Fallen Order is the Dark Souls of Star Wars games”. Real original, right? Well, the thing is, it really is the Dark Souls of Star Wars games. Many of the mechanics of the Souls games are present here, and while it’s not as hard as Souls (which given it’s a Star Wars game, is probably for the best) it really did have to be said. Still, I really liked the game and loved the story it told, so let’s get to it!
