I am a huge Resident Evil fan. As a child, I played the PlayStation 1 entries – the series debut and its two sequels - to the point where I could finish them all in a single day. The series has changed somewhat over the past years, infuriating the purist fans thanks to the more action-orientated approach, yet making new ones in the process too thanks to undeniably fun gameplay. When I played the first Revelations on the 3DS, it was a pretty darn decent return to form. There was a ton of action, yes, but there was also elements that really took the game back to the roots of the series. I really enjoyed it, and have been awaiting the sequel eagerly. Its finally here, albeit in episodic format. With expectations high, I took episode 1 for a spin.

Resident Evil Revelations 2 doesn’t feature local co-op on PC, because – and I’m guessing here – Capcom thinks people who play PC games are solitary folk who play their games hunched over little monitors. The fact is, many people use their PCs as game consoles, hooked up to their TVs and entertainment systems. It’s something that’s become more prolific since Steam’s Big Picture mode – so the removal of split-screen co-op has many gamers irked, especially with Capcom saying that they have no intention of patching the feature in.

It was a sunny morning, the kind that would burn your eyes right out if you could convince a stupid kid to stare into the sun. I’d just received an Xbox One, which included that fancy Kinect unit which may or may not have been watching me shower and broadcasting it to fetish German porn sites. I was in need of a game, but not your typical shoot ‘em up. And then into my download queue, was thrown D4, quite possibly the craziest game of the year.

If there are two words that can strike fear into the heart of any person, it has to be ‘I’m pregnant’. Also, ‘Dark Souls’, which is almost as terrifying. The sequel action-RPG did well last year, with most reviews praising the efforts of From Software for adding to their mythos with a solid successor. DLC for the game is on the way, so here’s your first look at the Crown Of The Sunken King expansion.

Bioshock Infinite was a departure from previous games in the franchise. Taking to the clouds, the game was a five-year development odyssey that ditched the oceans and objectivism of an underwater kingdom for a more personal tale of love, loss and parallel dimensions.

With Irrational Games now closed, the Bioshock franchise has gone with it. But Burial At Sea gives the cult hit games the send-off that it deserves in a second act that plays to its strengths.

In a distant time and faraway place, the planet of Earth floats deep in space. Blue skies, one sun, land of precious bore, the gold rush brought the British in by the score!

I know I am not alone in the dark pit of Sonic despair hoping that one day Sega will be able to make a new Sonic game that doesn’t entirely suck.

And now finally I see a glimmer of light, IGN has posted up their review of Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 and all in all it’s a pretty decent review.
