Let’s Play: Alien Isolation Oculus Rift 

Well, after taking Alien Isolation out for a spin on the Oculus Rift, I know that I’d be absolutely no use to Ripley against the Xenomorphs! This is perhaps the most terrifying game I’ve played on the Oculus Rift and I’d even go as far to say it’s the best virtual reality experience I’ve had. […]

Umbra: Kickstarter Campaign

Umbra: Kickstarter Campaign 

Well this sure looks interesting, a brand new action RPG built in Cryengine with some very ambitious goals.

The developers promise some very ambitious features, but […]

A Dinosaur Survival Game

A Dinosaur Survival Game 

So, how many survival games does the games industry need? Well apparently more is the answer!

Battle Camp Review

Battle Camp Review 

Introduction So I’ve taken one of the more popular Pokemon clones for mobile devices for a spin.

Dungeon Hunter 4 

So I decided to delve into another one of Gameloft’s clones. They make some pretty good mobile games and Dungeon Hunter 4 is no different.
