Kingdom Hearts III Coming 2018, Toy Story World Revealed

on Mon, Jul 17, 2017 | By Simon Smith

Square Enix caused concern when they suggested Kingdom Hearts III would be up to three years off. The shortage of news since implied this suggestion was true, but during the D23 Expo Square Enix put it to rest. Kingdom Hearts III is coming in 2018. The trailers for the game showed off the Hercules world but more importantly...

Cars 3: Driven to Win Review

on Sat, Jul 8, 2017 | By Simon Smith

A movie tie-in game is a dime a dozen and rarely more than a quick cash-in. Developers tasked with making a movie tie-in nonetheless have an opportunity to make an interesting game. Avalanche Software has done this with Cars 3: Driven to Win to middling success. Most movie-based games retell the movie’s plot taking only...

In Defense of: Beyond Two Souls

on Fri, Jun 30, 2017 | By Simon Smith

Beyond: Two Souls has received its fair share of criticism since it launched on the Playstation 3 back in 2013. Most of this addresses concerns with the narratives direction, alongside the pointless quick time events. It is hard to argue against the frustrations with the quick time events when compared to Heavy Rain’s...

I first began playing console games in the late ’90s. As a young boy who was new to games, I couldn’t have asked for a better series to start me off than Crash Bandicoot.
