Black Desert Online Review: Is It Any Good?

black desert review
If 2020 has allowed me to do one thing, it's been to rediscover my inner gamer. The whole "working from home" thing has given me some extra time to lose myself in virtual worlds, even while my doggo sits and licks my hands while I play through my back catalogue of games. So, on paper, Black Desert Online was...

Cyberpunk 2077 Review: Can You Refund A Xbox Digital Purchase?

cyberpunk 2077 review
Yep. That's the title of the review and also the ultimate conclusion of my Cyberpunk 2077 review too. I've had my Xbox One since... well I'm not sure, to be honest. It's been a long long time though I do think it's time I made the jump to the PlayStation 5. Anyway, my point is that in all those...

PlayStation 5 Console Review: Too Little Of A Good Thing?

playstation 5 review
The PlayStation 5 is finally here! Well, kind of. A shortage of stock on launch day has meant that, for a lot of people, the next generation of console gaming is still some time away. However, Sony has confirmed that more units will reach Irish shores before Christmas. Tesco has already started calling people who missed out on the...

Spider-Man Remastered Review: Is It Worth Buying?

spider-man remastered
It’s no secret that Sony and Marvel have a complicated relationship as far as Spider-Man (as well as the Spider-Verse at large) is concerned. But it’s also well known that in recent years their rocky partnership has generated some of the best Spider-Man media we’ve ever seen. Insomniac’s Spider-Man blew us away in 2018 when it made its way...

Sony Confirms More PlayStation 5 Consoles Coming To Ireland In 2020

The launch of Sony PlayStation has been.... let's say, interesting. On launch day, websites around Ireland collapsed under the pressure of shoppers trying to secure their new PS5. With many still concerned about whether or not they would be able to buy a PS5 before the end of the year, especially for Christmas, some hope has been given. The official...

F1 2020 Game Review: Strap In For One Hell Of A Ride

f1 2020 review
I've always been a fan of Formula One games. From the original racers to EA's F1 Manager game, there's a scratch that comes with being an F1 fan that these games scratch. The F1 2020 game is out and the latest instalment from Codemasters is by far the most comprehensive F1 game to date. If you want to see...

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Review

Assassin's Creed is back with the latest addition to one of gaming's most iconic series. Assassins Creed Valhalla is less stealth and speed and more smash and destroy as is the Viking life, taking place during the Viking raids of England. You play as Eivor, the male or female main protagonist while you pillage your way through the lands...

Watch Dogs Legion – The Full Review

Watch Dogs Legion is a great game with a sneaky message, we have the power to rise up and fight against authoritarian governments when we need to do so. Ubisoft decided the way to send that message was to create a game without a hero. You can play as any one of nine million NPC's (well not really NPC's...

EA Play Now Free For All Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Members

The mental battle in my mind rages between which console I'm going to opt for this year. Yes, I know it's a bit odd that I've not caved and picked yet, a bit like that undecided voter on election day in the US. If this sounds like you, you've decided on Xbox Series X or are just ignoring it...

Dirt 5 Review: Lots Of Mucky Fun

You learn a lot about a racing game when you're halfway through the first corner. With F1 2020 it was realising I didn't get the tyres warm enough while the other AI cars stuck to the racing line and braking points significantly better than I did. Forza was something similar and you know what, it makes sense when you...
