Despite being one of the most popular sports in the world, cricket has rarely been reproduced in anything resembling a fun video game. The last good cricket games I played were the Beam Software developed Super International Cricket (SNES) and its followups on PC. Since sport sims embraced the third dimension cricket games have floundered, with … Continue reading Don Bradman Cricket 14 is everything I dreamed a cricket game could be
I've had this game for a couple of years and never thought about playing it. The box is bland, it's an FPS, and muddy brown shooters do not excite me; almost all Xbox 360 shooters I've played have been terrible. Nothing personal against the game, but that's how my shallow mind worked for the last … Continue reading Bioshock – Late to the Rapture
It has been a few weeks since the WiiU launched, and I am loving it. Miiverse is amazing, ZombiU is amazing and New Super Mario Bros U is pretty close to topping Super Mario Bros. 3 is terms of being my favourite side-scrolling Mario game. While the game journalism side has already been torn apart … Continue reading “I like my new WiiU, but I won’t make games for it!”
Ladies and gentlemen, I have or had a problem. I kept thinking to myself, “What game should I review for Pietriots since I want to be my unprofessional self rather then an in-depth reviewer?” Well SEGA decided to give me an answer in the form of an extremely fun Saturn classic given an HD re-release… … Continue reading NiGHTS into dreams HD: Simple game, stupid analog mess up, short review
It's here at last, and you can play it on your Xbox 360 now if you bought Dragon's Dogma; or with some (legal) USB trickery if you're too cool to buy games. Like many fans of the series, I feared Resident Evil had turned into a generic action game and lost it's campy survival horror … Continue reading Resident Evil 6 – Demo Impressions
Alan Wake is an enchanting game. When I first played through it on normal difficulty I poked fun at it a lot. The campy setting, repetitive gameplay, awkward animations, and silly concepts were all easy targets for ridicule; yet I still played through all the way to the end. The environments really captured me in … Continue reading Alan Wake – Nightmare Revisited
A few years ago, Joy Ride Kinect was released as an example of how a racing game could benefit from Kinect controls. The game was a broken mess, to the point where you could win races without even moving. The developers have finally admitted this was a bad idea, and they've re-released the game with … Continue reading Joy Ride Turbo – Now With Buttons!
THIS GAME IS SO GOOD. I've been playing it a lot and enjoying every second; but until now haven't been able to pinpoint WHY it's so good. Sure it's got amazing graphics and a better draw distance than even Xenoblade Chronicles, but there's something else that sets this game apart from all other open world … Continue reading Just Cause 2 – A Man’s Game
*BANG* Right through the head. The shot echoed through the wasteland, no doubt perking the ears of every creature for miles. It's not the kind of sound you'd go running towards though, is it? Whatever, anyone in the area would just think it was raiders. How many more could there be? I had enough ammo … Continue reading Fallout 3 – Class of 2077 (Journal)
Ah, the age old question. It's a debate that's raged on over the internet gaming community for the past decade or so. Gran Turismo has dazzled people over the years with its fantastic presentation, wealth of options and satisfying career mode. Forza has emerged with improved driving physics and community aspects, and now thanks to … Continue reading Forza vs Gran Turismo, which is better?
The first review of Battlefield 3 to hit the net where the reviewer wasn't paid off or submitted to a cross examination by EA lawyers.
