Oirbo is a 2-D platformer that takes the titular character to a metroidvania-inspired monolithic spacecraft. Which you must explore to discover its secrets and history.

Treachery in Beatdown City is an over-the-top take on an American city which is plagued with several issues. On the surface, it is a tribute to the 80s beat-em-ups and wouldn’t go amiss in any arcade collection. From the off you can tell it offers so much more than its arcade appearance suggests, it manages to blend beat-em-up and RPG combat […]

On Tuesday 2nd June, Blackout Tuesday hit social media by storm and video game companies were some of those involved in the movement. Studios, Publisher and other companies such as ActivisionBlizzard, Ubisoft and EGX. were some of those who spoke out. While other companies such as YouTube and Ubisoft stated, they were going to donate to the causes. Others such as PlayStation and Activation postponed presentation and launches to “allow more important voices to be heard” (PlayStation). Despite these many were criticized for just being words. Many went against what they have done and said in the past. Blizzard, for example, suspended Ng’ Blitzchung’ Wai Chang after he showed support for the protest in Hong Kong last year and banned three players following for the same […]
Video games provide a great voice for people, experiencing the world behind someone else’s eyes but do we have enough diversity in the people telling these stories?

Wolfenstein has been one of those games that I started playing “back in the day” but just struggled to get past the first couple of missions for whatever reason. I’m a bit of a history buff, so anything in the past gets me interested, and the direction MachineGames and previously Raven Studio’s ‘re-imagining’ of the series provided a ‘what if’ scenario. […]
Next on my long list of backlog to complete is Sabotage’s The Messenger, I found this game at EGX last year when Dale introduced me and has been sat on my PC since. Arguably this has become one of my favourite platformers of all time and it’s a game that will instantly grab your attention. It has a lot going […]
With a couple of weeks off work, I now have a bit of extra time to attack what has become somewhat of an extensive backlog. Between the awesome offerings on Xbox Game Pass, cheap steam deals and a couple of free games on Epic Games, I’ve been really spoilt for choice recently. So I’m going to start making a move […]

With the lock down in place I’ve had a bit more chance to play some games and have a think of how they effect me in certain situations. These aren’t the type of articles I normally post but having some time to reflect I thought it was time I gave this a crack. Management Sims are my go-to choice of […]
