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.

Fans of Nickelodeon’s sequel series to Avatar: The Last Airbender rejoiced upon hearing the news that Platinum Games – renowned for titles such as Bayonetta, Vanquish and Metal Gear Rising – would be taking on the challenge of a true The Legend of Korra videogame. Licensed games typically have a reputation of failing to meet expectations, and while this may still hold weight with this year’s tie-in, fans will be pleased to know that they can still dive in and experience the power of bending for themselves.

To call Akiba’s Trip: Undead & Undressed different would be an understatement. A street brawler at heart, Akiba’s Trip wacky take on Japanese culture and fan service is not going to bode well with everyone. It’s an accomplished title let down by a questionable design direction.

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution follows closely in the footsteps of its predecessor Ultimate Ninja Storm 3. Jam-packed with more characters, story, special jutsu and new features, this title feels more like a continuation than a proper revolution as the name may suggest. As the fifth title (and possibly last title) for last gen consoles, Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution is a welcome inclusion to the long-running franchise.
