Bladestorm is Koei Tecmo’s black sheep of their franchise family. Primarily known for their Dynasty Warriors series, Bladestorm: The Hundred Years’ War was released back in 2007 on the PlayStation 3 to a rather hush reception.

Although a competent title, it’s nowhere near as popular as the Musou series, largely due to its real-time strategy approach to its historical re-telling of the century long clash between England and France. If you missed it the first time, Bladestorm: Nightmare offers you the chance to experience it on a revised re-release with expanded content on a new generation of consoles.

Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires continues Omega Force’s tradition, meshing together two seemingly different genres into a singular cohesive experience. Combining the best of hack-n-slash action with the turn-based strategy of Romance of the Three Kingdoms is pure magic, but as the 8th instalment in the franchise, is there enough innovation and features to justify a brand new purchase?

Akira Toriyama’s Dragon Ball series is one of the greatest anime series ever created and despite the manga and anime concluding many years ago, the popularity of Dragon Ball is so intense that a new title is released almost annually. The first offering for a new generation of consoles is uniquely different from the Budokai Tenkaichi and Raging Blast brawlers of years gone by.

Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 Review

Konami’s Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 takes the competition to EA’s FIFA 15 and this year, may be on the verge of snatching away FIFA‘s long-standing mantle as the premier football (soccer) simulator. With a lukewarm reception from FIFA 15 this year, PES 2015 have delivered their strongest contender to date.

Visually, PES 2015 is head and shoulders ahead of FIFA 15 in this department. While FIFA 15 visuals look starkly similar to last years offering, PES 2015 have upped the ante once again producing a beautifully realistic experience.

Koei Tecmo took their time with Samurai Warriors 4 but it’s finally here, just in time to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the series. It’s been 4 long years in-between the last primary Samurai Warriors title, but this Japanese-themed Musou spawn is definitely worth the wait. Bolstered, enhanced in nearly all facets compared to its predecessors, there’s plenty to experience in the latest entry to the Samurai Warriors franchise.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel! Review

When Borderlands first burst on to the scene back in 2009, many critics wrote the series off before it was even released. Gearbox Software “loot and shoot” first-person shooter launched at a highly competitive period against the likes of Uncharted 2, Demon’s Souls, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 the following month.

Despite the odds, Borderlands not only survived; but thrived thanks largely to its addictive looting system, tight gameplay controls, and lush cel-shaded graphics.

Naturally Borderlands 2 followed not too long after, but before the series takes a step forward, Gearbox Software along with our very own home-grown 2K Australia will be taking things half a step back with a 1.5 release in the story arc – Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel!

I love karaoke and I love SingStar. I’m terrible at the game but when I heard SingStar Ultimate Party was coming to PlayStation 4, I was a little chuffed to say the least. SingStar Ultimate Party is visually competent compared to its many iteration on the PlayStation 3, but it does lack some key features to take it into a whole new stratosphere.

The Evil Within breathes fresh life into the survival horror genre. With Shinji Makami (of Resident Evil 4 fame) at the helm of Tango Gameworks, the air of expectation is unavoidable. Thankfully The Evil Within delivers a genuinely frightening experience horror purists have been crying out for. It may even leave some players simply crying.

Coming off the success of their first soiree into the next-generation marketplace, NBA 2K14 set a high benchmark as arguably the greatest basketball simulator experience ever created. The distinction between the previous-gen and now current-gen consoles was pretty much night and day, leaving many fans to ask the obvious question of Visual Concepts – Where can the 2K franchise go from here?

Although the improvements aren’t as drastic or immediately distinguishable from tip-off, NBA 2K15 adds further refinement to a series that needed very little improvement to captivate its audience.
