Battlezone Review

Space Paranoids!

battlezone01

HIGH Watching a salvo of missiles arc across the sky and drop three enemy planes simultaneously.

LOW Dying on the final boss due to a lack of ammo drops.

WTF Are you absolutely sure this isn’t taking place inside a computer? Tanks drop data when they explode.


This Is Not A Review: The Sony PSVR Launch Titles

Welcome to This Is Not A Review. In these articles we discuss general impressions, ideas and thoughts on any given game, but as the title implies, it’s not a review. Instead, it’s an exercise in offering a quick recommendation (or dismissal) after spending enough time to grasp the ideas and gameplay of a thing without necessarily playing it from A to Z.

The subject of this installment: Twelve different PSVR launch titles!

The 5 Outlastiest Moments in the Outlast 2 Demo

 

outlast-2

I was playing the demo for Outlast 2 on the XB1, and I found myself amazed/frightened/disgusted by a few key moments in it. Then it occurred to me that I’d never attempted to make a video list – so why not try to share those moments with anyone who didn’t play the game? So, without any further ado, here’s the video!


Atlas Reactor Review

The Future of Turn-Based Is Here

Atlas Reactor

HIGH Finally catching a teleporting robot by swinging at where he was going to be, not where he was.

LOW Having to grind for around 30 hours to get the prized Conan-themed skin.

WTF You just went from cute to terrifying, robot dog.


Syndrome Review

In Space, No One Can See You Giving The Middle Finger to Syndrome

Syndrome

HIGH Finally cutting loose and blasting a zombie to death with all my ammo.

LOW Any one of the five game-breaking bugs I encountered.

WTF Stranger: “Let’s fly this plague ship to a human planet!” My character: “Sounds like a great plan!”


The Metronomicon Review

Can’t Stop The Music

The Metronomicon

HIGH Perfectly matching every beat of a boss’s ultimate attack, and destroying him with my counter!

LOW Dying a dozen times because the game hides the health meter.

WTF No, those aren’t landmines, they’re just special effects!
