I saw Transistor a while ago but it dropped off the radar until recently where I saw it was finally available so I decided to pick it up.

REVIEW: Watch_Dogs

The next generation defining game is finally upon us.  First announced at E3 2012, Watch_Dogs demonstrated exactly what we wanted to see from the next generation of consoles, wowed audiences and became Ubisoft’s new hot property IP.  No with it finally in our hands, has it lived up to expectation?

Review Scores & Bioshock Infinite

10star

The last two major triple A releases, Tomb Raider and Bioshock Infinite, have both received heaped praise from pretty much every media source on the planet, and yet there seem to be an isolated few of us, stranded and forgotten, who seem to disagree.  As with any release you get the people who love the game, hate the game and simply do not care.  Games that score a 10 would indicate to me that all three of these categories are catered for, and that universally whoever you spoke to would agree the same.

With that in mind, I’d like to just state that, I lovED Tomb Raider up until the most recent entry, and that now after three Bioshock games, none of which I have enjoyed enough to finish, all still fail to capture my imagination and I find them to be dare I say it? Boring.

Now I can’t be the only one in the Bioshock boat, yet, with all the magical 10/10 reviews floating around I thought maybe this would be the one that finally turned the tide.  Not a chance.

REVIEW: Tomb Raider

Lara Croft is back, younger then ever and slightly resembling Cheryl Cole.  The new Tomb Raider endeavors to tell the story of how our iconic explorer came to be the woman we have known and loved over the past 16 odd years.

Review scores have been overwhelmingly positive about the much touted reboot of the franchise which is a shame because I’m about to piss on that parade because quite frankly I see very little to merit.

REVIEW: It’s Persona 4 Golden

Persona 4 Golden, to be quite honest, is the best role playing game I’ve played in a long time.  I sunk a good 100 hours into the original Playstation 2 incarnation, not knowing quite what it was I was doing, muddled my way through it and came out the other side a better person.  Thus birthed my Persona interest and moving swiftly in reverse, sprung Persona 3 FES out of its seal and began to sink maybe close to 150 hours into that as well.

Now I don’t know about you, but I have found it difficult to re-ignite that original spark you get from playing a RPG for the first time.  I look at great games sat on my shelf that I’ve already beaten and think…..can’t play that again, or if I do, I lose interest relatively quickly because there isn’t that carrot on a stick story telling to keep me interested because I know full well what will happen.  Now.  I know full well what happens in say Final Fantasy VII and yet this game never seems to age.  Persona 4 Golden, has exactly the same feeling.
