The Tomb Raider series means a lot to me, and while I admit it has lost its footing in recent years, I’ve always stuck by Lara. The latest Tomb Raider, however, has been completely re-imagined and – at some points – doesn’t even feel like a TR game. It’s a welcome change, though, and has me well and truly hooked.
No, it’s not 2010. I just took an urge to return to Dead Rising 2 and am glad I did; I forgot how much fun it is to be stuck in a Las Vegas mall with 70,000+ zombies. Sure, Capcom hasn’t strayed much from the original Dead Rising, but in my fangirl eyes this is a good thing. I’m not sure who I prefer, though. Frank West or [...]
Thank you, Agent 47. Thank you, thank you, thank you. After an anti-climatic time with Assassin’s Creed III, I needed something to reignite my excitement for gaming, especially as I have time to wind down over the Christmas period. Hitman: Absolution has delivered. I’m trying to be as true a hitman as possible, utilising stealthy [...]

I’ve been waiting on the follow up to Arkham Asylum for a long time, and so far Arkham City isn’t a disappointment. The combat is just as addictive, as is soaring through the crime-infested city, solving riddles and, umm, admiring Catwoman. It’s become that game that makes me will 5pm to come along sooner every evening, and [...]
I’m on the second disc of Rockstar’s 1940′s, action adventure game, LA Noire. It had a big buzz about it, and I was gutted that I took so long getting around to playing it. Now that I’m so far through it, though, I’m finding the missions a bit repetitive, but not to the extent I’m not enjoying it or won’t [...]
Sam Fisher and I don’t go back too far. We first met on the Xbox 360 with Double Agent, but even I can see that Conviction is a different, less stealthy approach to the Splinter Cell series. Still, it’s bloody brilliant and very much worth the long wait we’ve endured.
