Game of The Year 2017

…well, it’s just like, my opinion – man.

Well, here we are ladies and gentlemen – the cusp of yet another New Year. I personally hate New Year, a lot of preparation to end up in a pub full to the rafters and waiting 25 minutes to get a drink that is severely overpriced. Not for me, but it does allow me the chance to share with you all my personal game of the year choices! As always, I will do a top 3, with some honorable mentions – so shall we see what I have chosen this year? Let’s do this!

**I will keep it spoiler free!** Continue reading

The Hunt For Platinums

…are they worth it?

If you check your email that you use for your PlayStation Network this week you will most likely find a breakdown of your Play Highlights! This ranges from your online game time to your amount of games you own. Of course it includes your trophy breakdown and what is the rarest trophy you have! This got me thinking, how many of us stick with one game in order to achieve the platinum? Continue reading

Resident Evil 7 Review

…there will be blood…and tears – mostly tears.

Capcom promised they would try and return to the roots which made us all fall in love with Resident Evil originally – scary atmospheres in unsettling locales and a scarcity of supplies. Although many of people where put off by the first person perspective I am sure you are all asking one question – did they succeed?

WARNING : The following will contain MAJOR spoilers of the games story. If you haven’t finished it please go and do so then return to read the review after!

Gaming Tastes

…and how to satisfy them.

piknmix

Just like a pick-n-mix, got to filter through the fillers!

Growing up, I was a sucker for the big experience. Games like Diablo, Neverwinter Nights, Ultima Online and World of Warcraft were the staples of my gaming habits from around 8 years old up until I was in my late teens. However, these days – although I still love the genres – I can never quite pull the trigger on these types of game purchases. But why? Continue reading

FeVRier: Experiences I NEED in VR

I’ve been playing through ‘Resident Evil VII’ in VR and it is one incredible experience. Here we have Virtual Reality and my favourite gaming series of all time combined together in a beautiful union and the resulting experience is quite simply one that defines my gaming career.

There are no words to express just how right a fit ‘Resident Evil VII’ is for PSVR (well there are words, but wait for the review yeah?) and how it gives me exactly what I wanted from it – it gave me the opportunity to live in a horror movie. And it is stunning – I’ve been scared loads, I’ve frozen on the spot on more than just a few occasions and I’ve not wanted to continue more times than I’m proud of. None of these feelings overpower the experience. Looking down that corridor in stereoscopic 3D is mind-blowingly cool; knowing that I may get attacked by a horrific creature is not only terrifying; but exhilarating.

It got me thinking about VR and how it transports you into another world. Worlds in which anything is possible and nothing is out-of-bounds. I’ve compiled a massive list of the experiences that I NEED for PSVR;  but here are what I consider my top 3… Continue reading

Resident Evil VII is the PSVR Killer App

img_2670

Resident Evil VII released last Tuesday and received univers.ally great reviews – some proclaimed it as the return of survival horror and the saviour of the genre. After playing two hours of it; it’s hard to argue against those ascertains, it truly is a brilliant game.

However during my sweep of reviews for the game I noticed something; a little odd, the PS4 reviews were ever-so-slightly higher than the other formats and at first I wondered why this was. Then I brought my copy home, installed it and placed my PSVR visor on; it hit me like a ton of bricks within the first ten minutes – this is the reason I bought the PSVR – and is the reason you should too!

I know better than game developers

img_2670

Throughout its entire development time; well since Capcom first showed the game publicly, ‘Resident Evil VII’ has been up against it,  I have seen the narrative that it “is not Resident Evil” and “it’s an outlast rip off” amongst other complete nonsense spouted by privileged gamers on message boards, comment sections and twitter.

Unless every single one of these people are employees/board members/designers of Capcom then they are taking their irrelevant voices to the internet and proclaiming; in a voice loud and true, “HEY GAME DEVELOPERS, I KNOW BETTER THAN YOU!” Continue reading

MrLuvva’s Luv-In #57

August is nearly gone which means that September is about to begin – and with September comes…

…the Christmas games rush! Colour me excited though, new games are coming and it’s not a moment too soon; I haven’t bought one since ‘The Division’ so i’m well overdue! On top of that the PSVR is getting so close I can almost taste it (prepare yourselves for an avalanche of VR articles) – as well as our annual “Frightfest” celebrations – it’s almost too much.

Getting back to the present though I have assembled a crack selection of posts for your enjoyment. As always make sure you support these fine writers with a click of their links and if you have a good post you want to share with us, then please link it in the comments below! Continue reading
