Prey is jam packed with interesting mechanics and FPS quirks, reminiscent of Bioshock, Portal, Half-Life and Arkane Studios’ other big title, Dishonored.
Getting to know them all takes a long time so here’s a basic guide to get you on your feet in the opening hours on Talos 1.
Ship graveyard and mountain
Atmospheric wind in the sail
Dat view doe
Up the saturation a bit
Arriving here was awesome
The point you realised TLOU is too good
Naughty Dog are struggling to do anything wrong right now.
This is evident when you take a few seconds from the action too appreciate the beautiful places they’ve allowed us to adventure in.
I have never found myself reaching for the screenshot button as regularly as I do while playing Horizon: Zero Dawn.
The slab of Colorado and Utah you are given to explore is a contender for the single most beautiful open world in gaming. Read More
The three anchoring qualities of Horizon are: the world, the machines and Aloy herself.
HORIZON: Zero Dawn has the characteristics of a soaring eagle, bursting from a cage after years of captivity.
For the past decade, Horizon’s developers, Guerilla Games have rigidly stuck to the First Person Shooter genre, severely limiting their ability to show us what they are truly capable of.
What they have created with Horizon is a true tour de force and further proof that original intellectual properties can shine in a market of Call or Duties and Fifas. Read More
SEQUEL to the stellar action RPG, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, Shadow of War has been announced by Warner Bros.
Shadow of Mordor won over 50 awards, including the BAFTA for Game Design.
Developed by Monolith Productions, Middle-earth: Shadow of War sees the return of protagonists Talion and Celebrimbor, who must now forge an army and turn all of Mordor against the Dark Lord, Sauron.
THERE is no in-between with this game, it either does something exceptionally well or it makes a mess of it.
Announced a decade ago under the working title of ‘Final Fantasy Versus XIII’, you would expect Final Fantasy XV (FFXV) to be a polished gem.
Instead it is an assortment of hit and miss content, so varied you are bound to find at least one thing you enjoy among the thickets. Read More
AFTER waiting a full decade for it, I couldn’t wait to sink my teeth into Final Fantasy XV.
It is massive in terms of geographic size and content.
And yet. Read More
A SEQUEL to The Last of Us needs to shake up the formula.
On the surface, the trailer suggests this isn’t going to happen, but if you look a little deeper; it just might.
If my theory is correct, it is going to try and be an even darker story than before. Read More
FINALLY, here’s a look at Dragon Quest XI.
I’ve been waiting for a full size Dragon Quest on a home console since VIII.
Ni no Kuni scratched the itch a bit but this is what it’s all about. A solid single player experience and mahoosive world to stroll around in.
Now should I get it on PS4 or Switch?
DRAGON Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King is my favourite JRPG.
The art style is beautiful, the story is sweeping, battling is basic but addictive, the world is huge and the sound track is sublime.
I cannot hide my excitement for the 3DS release, but I am also quite disappointed it is not a home console remake. Read More
