Here’s something I’ve wanted to do for a while. As a backer for Lab Zero Game’s upcoming RPG, Indivisible, I was able to play an exclusive preview of it.
So join me and my friend James and enjoy the cool combat, the amazing animation and my not so great gameplay.
The announcement of a brand new, wholly original Spider-Man game being developed by Insomniac Games got a lot of people, including me, very excited. It had felt like it had been ages since we got something like this – a console super-hero game that wasn’t just a cash-grab tie-in to a new movie or TV show. Everything about it looked promising and I felt like this could herald in a new age of high-quality superhero games. And judging by this game’s success, I think it’s safe to say that might just be the case.
Unless you’ve just not been paying attention, it’s no secret that Spider-Man (or Marvel’s Spider-Man – they seriously needed a better name) has been positively received. What was expected to be a moderate success has become Sony’s fastest selling first-party game ever and its first month’s sales beat the likes of God of War and Uncharted 4. It’s a good game is what I’m saying.
Honestly, I probably don’t even need to write a review about it. I’ll tell you right now; all the positive reception you’ve heard is right. If you have a PS4, this is a must buy. But, you know what, this game is SO good that I need to gush about it regardless. So rather than posit the question “Is Spider-Man on PS4 a good game?,” let’s discuss WHY it’s good. Continue reading
It’s another Entertainment Dome One Shot, and James is back with me this time! On this episode, we check out quirky puzzle game Donut County and completely ruin peoples’ lives by sucking things up into a giant hole.
Massive thank you to Jeff Lagaspi for giving me a code.
Last week on the Entertainment Dome, James and I were finally able to talk about all the juicy new Kingdom Hearts III details we got from E3, including the brand new Frozen world, the Ratatouille minigame, plot details and much more.
Steven Universe is well known for a lot of reasons – one of those reasons being its numerous musical numbers; the quality of which can range from decent to down right amazing. So it’s kind of a shame that the soundtrack for it’s console tie-in game turned out to be very generic. Not bad, just… a bit bland, maybe. It does have a couple killer tracks though that stand above the rest – one of them (fortunately) being the boss battle theme.
What do you get when you cross a 2D platformer with a pinball game? You get Yoku’s Island Express, where Yoku the dung-beetle’s first day as postmaster turns into a quest to save the island.
Massive thank yous to Bethany Aston and Jonno Stanton for providing me with a code.
This week on The Entertainment Dome, James and I are less than impressed with the Detroit: Become Human demo (to the point where we don’t even remember the game’s name), before moving on to a good PS4 game – God of War – and then we wrap things up with a quick look at the new Kingdom Hearts III details.
WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep
While I don’t have as much as an emotional connection to many of Kingdom Hearts‘ original characters as some people do, I won’t deny that the series has some effective and enjoyable original antagonists. For example, Vanitas from Birth by Sleep became an instant favourite of mine due to his personality, his vocal performance and his theme music. Continue reading
WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for Gravity Rush 2
One of my favourite scenes in Gravity Rush 2 is when Kat is mistaken for a singer and has to perform for some soldiers, because it’s so silly, especially since it seems like Kat is making this song up on the fly, but it’s also incredibly charming (not to mention she’s a damn good singer).

Last week’s Entertainment Dome episode is finally up for everyone to listen to! In this episode, James and I naturally squee over the now official Spyro remasters, as well as all the new info about Insomniac’s Spider-Man game and Octopath Traveler.
