Full Review: Dead by Daylight

Death is not an escape…

Available on Steam (£14.99), Xbox One (£24.99) and Playstation 4 (£29.99).

Released last year on PC, and more recently brought to consoles, Dead by Daylight was developed by Behaviour Interactive and published by Starbreeze Studios. Offering a unique asymmetrical multiplayer experience deeply lodged in the horror genre, Dead by Daylight sees four survivors working together to repair generators while attempting to outwit, outrun and outlast a tenacious, unstoppable killer.


Dead by Daylight visual palette reeks of dreary bleakness from every facet. The entire game plays through a hazy fog adding to the sense of dread oozing in from all angles, bringing forth the eerie claustrophobic feeling that makes the horror genre so appealing to many...

Review: Fortnite

Don’t take shelter, MAKE IT!

Brought to you by Epic, Fortnite is an online cooperative mayhem-fest with Fort building, crafting, shiny loot and waves of undead hordes knocking at your door! Available in early access/closed beta form on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. The pricing of the game is… peculiar to say the least: This game will be released as a Free to Play title in 2018, but for now there are premium options. It’ll cost you £34.99 to get the most basic of packages, which is what I purchased. All the way up to £119.99 for the “Limited Edition”. (Spoilers: Fortnite is good, but it’s not £120 good…).

  • Graphics: The game is visually unique, some games such as PvZ: Garden Warfare have a similar style, but Fortnite does a stellar job of standing out and offering a colourful and refreshing vis...

Overwatch going strong after it’s first year, but who knows what the future holds?

The celebration of the Anniversary of the release of Overwatch was enjoyed in glorious style with a dedicated event, a bunch of cool new skins and a double XP weekend. It also marked the end to the very first successful year of Blizzard’s first new IP in the longest of times!

But now the dust has settled on the festivities and we find ourselves asking: “Who knows what the future holds?”

Unlike many games that quickly lose their value and stock up the preowned shelves, the value of Overwatch has not dropped dramatically, and it has often been difficult to track down second hand...

Overwatch – Competitive Season 4 Coming to an End!

Season 4 of Overwatch’s Competitive Mode has been causing highs and lows, jubilation and tribulation, pain and promotions since the 28th February. The Triple Tank Meta is still very much alive (although the nerf to Ana’s Biotic Grenade tried to put it in the dirt), and the bizarrely brilliant updates to Lucio and the neew Tank Orisa have probably been the most noticeable changes to this Season.

Lylirra [Community Manager] has provided us, through Blizzard’s forums, a little more information regarding the end of this rollercoaster of a season. As well as a little information regarding the (very quickly) upcoming Season 5.

DATE AND TIMES

Season 4 will officially end on Sunday, May 28 at 5:00 p.m. PDT (or Monday, May 29 at 00:00 UTC)...

Overwatch Ascends to a “Billion Dollar” Franchise!

Overwatch has garnered a lot of love and attention since long before it even released, with its marvellous mix of genius marketing, its wildly inclusive roster of colourful characters spanning the globe and being the product of one of the best game developers out there: Blizzard.

“On that day, I felt so Alive”
– Widowmaker

There are a few times when certain games gain popularity and critical acclaim far beyond what it seems they should earn for what they offer… And then there are times when a bit of news bubbles to the surface that just makes you want to applaud your fellow gamers for supporting something that so very much deserves supporting.

Such news has filtered to the surface recently regarding a game that some (me) perceive as the single best online game thus far this generation: Ov...

Play The Division for Free from May 4th – 8th!

One rather grand addition to this online and utterly connected gaming generation has been the advent of “Free Game Trials”. For a limited time, you get full, unfettered and complete access to the whole of the game. Any earned achievements and saved data are stored safely should you choose to pick up the game later down the line. This gives gamers a great opportunity to try as much of the game as they’re able to (within the time limit), rather than the typical affair of a couple of levels packed into a crudely cut together and called a ‘Demo’.

Next up on the “Free Game Trial” offerings coming to the Xbox One, Playstation Network and uPlay is a personal favourite of mine and one of 2016’s surprise hits: Tom Clancy’s The Division...

New Event: Overwatch Uprising!

“In honor of the fallen during the darkness. Until the darkest night gives way before dawn, may they be reborn in the light, and never be forgotten.”
~ A commemoration of the conflict in Dorado

A small period of time has passed since the previous Overwatch event, Chinese Lunar New Year, ended with a bang! Since then, there has been a new Season on Competitive Play and a brand new Tank, Orisa, has hit the Field. The future is looking bright for the online juggernaut “Overwatch”.

The future looks bright, but the past? The past is far darker…

Since it’s release, Blizzard have taken a dramatically different approach to the storytelling and narrative development when compared to most online first person shooters...
