Music Review: Chromeo – Quarantine Casanova EP

I first became aware of cheeky retro-electro funk duo Chromeo in 2007 at a British festival called The Big Chill. For a number of years back then, I used to attend that particular festival with a group of close friends; it was small but grew to a decent enough size that it attracted some phenomenal acts – and it was […]

Review: Bombfest

Available on: PC, PS4, Switch & Xbox One Though I’ve seen many gamers in recent years lament the decline of couch multiplayer titles in the last few console generations – growing up, as we did, with games such as Bomberman, Mario Kart, Goldeneye and more – it’s clear that they’re missing out on some fantastic experiences that have been available […]

Review: Donut County

I find myself increasingly bored by big scale, so-called triple-A open world collectathons in which the entire experience is diluted by endless icons dotted around gargantuan, intimidating maps. Most of what you end up doing in so many big open world games these days just ends up feeling like completely pointless busywork, there to pad out the running time of […]

TV Review: Floor is Lava

I’ve always had a soft spot for sports shows where non-professional athletes get to test their prowess against outlandishly designed courses. It probably started way back in the 80s with TV shows such as The Krypton Factor, which admittedly had a fairly bog standard assault course for its contestants to overcome, but progressed with shows such as American Gladiators and […]

Preview: Unspottable

I played quite a few demos as part of the Xbox Summer Game Fest, many of which were games that I’m very keen to get my hands on when they’re released. One that had flown under the radar for me until I tried the demo was Unspottable, which is honestly one of the best local multiplayer games I’ve played in […]

Review: Totally Reliable Delivery Service

Version Played: Xbox One – Also available on: Switch, PS4, PC Though not a new phenomenon, I’ve certainly noticed the rise of chaotic, physics based sandbox games since the release – and success – of Goat Simulator. Hilariously bonkers games such as Octodad, I Am Bread and Human Fall Flat immediately spring to mind when thinking of this type of […]

Review: Pooplers

Version Played: Switch (also available on Steam) – $8.99/£8.09 – Art Games Studio SA Multiplayer party games aren’t in short supply on Switch, with lots of great titles to choose from. Pooplers is a game that had – until release – flown entirely under my radar, but it’s a surprisingly engaging experience. In the main versus mode of Pooplers, players […]

Review: Hot Date

Out now (Windows, macOS & Linux) – Price: Pay What You Want (Drop the developer a *insert local currency here* or two – it’s worth it!) Speed dating is something that has never appealed to me. I have enough awkwardness and anxiety when meeting a single person, let alone several in quick succession. So I can’t say how realistic speed […]

Review: Clumsy Rush

Available Now on Nintendo Switch (£4.99/$4.99) I didn’t know what to expect when trying Clumsy Rush for the first time. It has a lovely, squishy look to the characters – […]

Bad Lip Reading: Star Wars Edition

As a bonus to pick you up after all yesterday’s disappointing gaming news, how about checking out Bad Lip Reading on YouTube? I am so late to the party for this. Though I’d seen a Bad Lip Reading video before – Redneck Avengers – and thought it was both clever and hilarious, I hadn’t stumbled upon their songs; one of […]

Review: Use Your Words

Version Played: Xbox One (also available on PC, PS4 and Switch) A local multiplayer party game that’s suitable for non-gamers, using your mobile phone to play? Sounds very familiar, doesn’t it? Use Your Words really does hew very closely to the Jackbox template, though it only focuses on a single game concept, where each Jackbox Party Pack has multiple, varied […]
