Far Cry: New Dawn game review

Spoilers abound! A few weeks ago, on a rare occasion of leaving my house, I found myself venturing into a CEX, where I have spent many fond minutes and pounds! As documented in my RDR2 review I had fortuitously converted my £60 of CEX credit into games back in December 2019, which got me through […]

Game review – Horizon Zero Dawn

Here be spoilers! Next up in my ongoing journey through the delights of Playstation Now is 2017 RPG Horizon Zero Dawn. There is a lot to like here.

Game Review: Little Nightmares

After the balmy hours of My Time At Portia, I stumbled across this brief palette cleanser of a game on PS Now.

You play as an unbearably slight little figure, barefoot and shrouded in a too-large yellow hooded garment. From the […]

Game review: My Time at Portia

After the thrills and spills of Bioshock, and the slapstick comedy of Monkey Island I was after a change of pace for my next PS Now game. My Time at Portia seemed like a solid bet. After chatting with a colleague about it, he said it sounded like a ‘pipe and slippers game’ which is […]
