Dead Island – Definitive Collection review (Xbox One)

Dead Island is back! Sadly, it’s not the full blown sequel Dead Island that we’ve seen at a few gameshows before its developer got dismissed, but it’s a re-release of the original games in a remastered edition, now available for Xbox One, PS4 and PCs.

Shadow of the Beast review (PS4)

I still remember the first time I saw Shadow of the Beast. I was in my early teens, and visiting my grandparents. We went over to a family down the street, and when I said I was into videogames I was shown their latest purchase. It was an Amiga, which I had never heard of before then.

Looking at the new Ratchet & Clank game from afar, it seems to have a few things going against it. First off, it’s a movie tie-in, and those games generally aren’t received well. It’s also priced at a mode moderate price point, at a little over half the cost of a normal AAA release. That’s also something that’s rarely a good sign from a major publisher. And then there’s the fact that it’s another ‘remake’. Well… despite all that, Ratchet & Clank’s PS4 debut is excellent – here’s our review. Continue reading “Ratchet & Clank review (PS4)”
