Game Pass Adventures

It’s been a big week for Game Pass, with Yakuza 0, Kingdom Hearts III and Two Point Hospital all released on the service. However, I’ve had limited gaming time and – if you’ve been reading my reviews regularly, you’ll know this already – my attention has still been mostly fixed on Jurassic World: Evolution, specifically the DLC campaigns that I’m […]

Review: Jurassic World: Evolution DLC – The Secrets of Dr. Wu

It feels very timely to be writing this article today, mere hours after filming for the third film in the Jurassic World trilogy – the title for which has now been revealed as Jurassic World: Domination – has started.

Opinion: Remakes and Remasters

I find it incredibly odd that the moment a movie remake or reboot is announced, people will immediately cry foul and decry the lack of imagination and originality in cinema, without even giving the movie a chance (I’ve been guilty of this myself, yet I’ve been proven wrong in harshly judging a film before it’s released). Yet those very same […]

Review: Colin Thiele's Storm Boy – The Game

Version Played: Xbox One – Also available on: Android, iOS, PS4, Switch, PC, Mac I hadn’t heard of Storm Boy before coming across the video game adaptation in an Xbox One sale, but the Australian novel it’s based on has been a perenially popular childrens book since its publication in 1966. It’s been adapted into a film twice – once […]

Game Pass Adventures

Readers, this week has been a monumental week for me on Game Pass. Why is that? Well, let’s find out… The Witcher III Yep, this is exactly why. Having been made available on Game Pass a short while ago – and with the Henry Cavill-starring Netflix series causing serious thirst around the world – I finally got a chance to […]

Game Pass Adventures

It’s been a while since I last covered the games that I’ve been playing on Game Pass; it’s a service that has become absolutely essential for me. I’m often unable to justify spending the full RRP on games, given my limited budget, but Game Pass removes that barrier for many big games; crucially, they’re also available on the same day […]

XBox Series X

Well, that was a surprise, wasn’t it? Last night, during The Game Awards 2019, Microsoft unveiled their next gen Xbox (previously codenamed Project Scarlett) – and the name has also […]

Game Pass Adventures

It’s that time again – I haven’t done this for a while, but every now and then I do a little round up of the games I’ve been checking out as part of my Game Pass subscription. There’s an awful lot of games on offer, with a surprising number of indie titles that could go under the radar – but, […]

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 […]

Review: The Jackbox Party Pack 2

I’ve long been a fan of the Jackbox Party Pack games. They’re amazing fun; each pack is a full game night for almost any number of players, with the added bonus that participants can use their phones to play the games. They’re wonderful, silly, funny and consistently witty games that everyone can enjoy, regardless of age or experience (though some […]
