Dead Rising 4 Impressions – EB Expo 2016

I never played the Dead Rising games, at all. I have heard of them, of course, and know they are post-apocalyptic with hordes of zombies. With that in mind, previewing Dead Rising 4 at the Xbox booth at the 2016 EB Games Expo with only basic knowledge, but no experience playing the game would be a positive and possibly turn someone into a fan. The demo presented was a blast to play with, even if it is a pretty basic zombie hack and slash. The demos starts off with Frank West staring down a horde of zombies and it’s the best way to describe the demo. In this open world environment, Frank an wield various weapons, be it melee for … Continue reading

Anima: Gate of Memories Review (PlayStation 4)

Anima: Gate of Memories is a Kickstarter project based on the Spanish tabletop RPG Anima: Beyond Fantasy developed by Anima Project. In this action RPG, players control two characters; the Bearer and Ergo, as they attempt to retrieve an artifact known as the Byblos. Despite the ambitions of the development team and their passion to deliver the best product they can, Anima Gate of Memories turns out to be a mediocre experience. While the lore of the world, combined with the decent graphics and sound, turns out to be very creative and combat is surprisingly well thought out, the game suffers from frustrating platforming, a uncooperative camera, a dull narrative and uninteresting characters. In Anima: Gate of Memories, two members … Continue reading

Attack On Gaming (in the) Media: Xbox One Letter Controversy


This week has been a pretty terrible one for the marketing team over at Microsofts Xbox division. In case you’ve missed the controversy, the main issue taken here is that Microsoft have misrepresented a large population of humans by stating that one party should stop the knitting to play video games with the other party that is already playing videogames. Sounds silly doesn’t it? And that’s because it is. It is unbelievably silly. In no way does the advertisement make any kind of reference to any kind of discrimination towards any other person, other than the person knitting. Who is this person knitting? It could be a man, it could be a woman, heck it could be some knitting God … Continue reading
