The End...

Well, that's it. Not a long Winded post this one, but cut right to the chase. 
After months of thinking about it and already reaching a point where the passion isn't there anymore for reviewing, this shall be the last post you shall see from me from here. 
Thanks to those who read or shared anything I ever did, both here and on Honest Games Reviews. I've had the pleasure of getting to know some great and kind people in PR and behind the scenes over the years. I've got to know loads of people via social media too, which was great for a shy guy like me, with the last how ever many years it has been (I've honestly lost count how long) being a quiet one if any of you wasn't there. 
So yeah, I'm out. Keep enjoying your gaming and once again thanks for making me take this reviewing lark well further than I ever imagined😘

Review - Need For Speed Heat (To Be Updated At A Later Date)

I honestly can't remember the last time I sat down with a Need For Speed game and felt like I was playing something special. In terms of open-world like racers, it's a genre that has a few heavy hitters in it these days. Need For Speed as a series just hasn't really took what it always had and took it that next step above. Well, not for me anyway  Sure, there have been some alright games in the past where certain new things have been added over time, but every game always ends up having that feel and vibe of a cheaper version of a Fast and Furious movie tie-in. Going into playing NFS Heat I honestly didn't know what to expect with it, as I had not really kept up to date with what it was offering this time around. I was just hopeful I wouldn't regret 25+ hours of my life once I took the dive in. The story itself sees you playing the standard guy who loves fast cars, with the police of course somehow taking the bad role of the whole thing, because how else would the g…

Review - AVICII Invector

Upon hearing about the release of Avichi Invector, I was always at some point going to give it a look, either via review code or picking it up by myself. Costing just £14.99, it takes a decent collection of songs from a Swedish DJ who sadly took his own life back in 2018. I won't sit here and act like I was the biggest fan of his work going in, but this game if anything celebrates his talent, and will also open your ears to some absolute bangers if you only know a few of his songs like myself. 
The game itself has a few little story like videos littered in between the six worlds that feature, with twenty five songs in total to play. The story might have some meaning behind it, but if it did it went right over my head if I'm honest. Each world you visit gives a different backdrop when playing songs, but your eyes will not actually enjoy it that much as they will mainly be focused on the play area. You do have a few sections in each song where you fly around a bit to go through a…

Headset Review - PDP LVL50 Wireless Headset

What feels like an eternity (in reality a month or two, okay three months ago, I'm sorry), PDP were kind enough to send me over a LVL50 Wireless headset to review. Truth be told it came at a great time too. Well a great time as in a perfect time that a headset is needed, what with the busy Xmas period of new games being flung at us all from every direction. On top of that, my wired branded pair from another company had seen better days. So before I even got going using these it was fair to say I was over the moon, just not in the right frame of mind at the time to put my fingers to good use and tell you all about them. Until now that is.
Myself and PDP go way back. Covering multiple pads and headsets, to their more unique items like their Pixel Pals range and their gorgeous Gears of War replica lancer I got sent to me. Writing about their stuff I've found that they don't mind bad feedback. Over the years I've praised stuff they've released when it deserved it, but a…

Review - Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD

Super Monkey Ball was a game that, I got to be honest, while knowing about and perhaps playing it a handful of times back in the day, it wasn't really a game for me that really stuck around in memory too long. It was only when this was revealed via the announcement trailer that my brain said "oh yeah, Super Monkey Ball, we had some time with that in the past and it was alright". So yeah, I went into this expecting just that. Nothing mind blowing, but just a bit of fun.
For those that haven't ever played a Super Monkey Ball game and have no idea what it is, let me tell you. Have you ever had a gerbil or hamster as a pet? You have? Okay, so you know that plastic ball we all buy that we stick them in when cleaning out their cage out so they can run around a bit and stretch their legs? Yeah, it's that but here we stick a monkey in it. Not only that, they also have to navigate tracks that have obstacles and holes on them as you try to make it to the end goal in which…

Review - Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

So a month or two ago I sat down with this game planning on getting a review out before Xmas. That obviously never happened due to life, and then a busted laptop to just even more cement my superb luck that was the end of 2019. But none the less, better late than never eh? So here are my thoughts on Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Now the story of Fallen Order is nothing we've not seen before, nor is it something you will come out of thinking it was the greatest thing you've ever seen. As a guy who doesn't really have Star Wars knowledge dripping out of my fingers, you can put me in the 2% who went into Fallen Order just because it looked a good game, and that's exactly what I got. 
You play Cal Kestis, a delightful yet somewhat basic lead to a videogame, who is somewhat overshadowed by a tiny robot you acquire early on known as BD-1. As Cal you start out pretty basic to begin with, but as time passes what I got was a story of growth and the opportunity to explore new plac…

Review - Close To The Sun

Close to the Sun was a game that had me interested right from the very first trailer that dropped for it. Having the look of a Bioshock game that was never released, the game was always going to attract the fans of that game and wonder if it played as well as it looks. It's taken me a while, yes I know. With the last couple of weekends seeing me load it up and promising myself I would finish it. About four weeks later here we are.

The game begins with you (Rose) getting a letter from your sister (Ada) asking you to go join her on a massive ship called The Helios, which is full of some of the greatest scientific minds there are. Sadly upon docking your ship you soon find out all is not well, with the port lifeless and in a mess, and upon getting fully inside having doors with quarantine written on them in blood slamming shut behind you and locking, you know something has gone wrong. Along the way, you will meet a few characters like your sister and a guy named Aubrey. But other th…
