Review - Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection | Rediscovering the Uncharted

Remastered games have been popping out like hamsters this year - joining the fray are Naughty Dog’s original Uncharted trilogy, which have been graphically enhanced with high definition textures, improved lighting, 1080p support, running at 60fps, and no less of Drake’s loveable personality. Nathan Drake, the game’s protagonist… not the uninspired monotonous rapper.
Remastered by SCE Bend Studio, Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection for the PlayStation 4 contains all three games generously packed into a single blu-ray disc package (over 40GB if you’re planning to get the digital release instead). With the fourth sequel currently in development for next year, will this trilogy remaster keep us hyped up for it?

Review - Transformers Devastation | COME GET SOME, DECEPTI-CREEP!

Remember when we were kids, we picked up our Transformers toys, and made them battle out in the most coolest ways possible? Like making Optimus ram Decepticons in his truck mode, proceeded to uppercut Megatron straight to his chin, and then pummel him with a flurry of punches and kicks?
No? It’s probably me then.. BUT ANYWAY..
Transformers Devastation is pretty much all that, and then some. The game is developed by Platinum Games (known for their hit titles such as Bayonetta, Vanquish and Metal Gear Rising), and is an unexpected gem for 2015. Most would agree that little expectation were given to the title, but all of that changed when it was actually played.

Review - Persona 4: Dancing All Night | Step Up

Persona 4: Dancing All Night feels like a reunion.. well, not like those awkward high school reunions that you’ll eventually turn down. The game gives out a nostalgic vibe of familiar friendship and silliness from your time spent in the original Persona 4. Developed by Atlus and the team behind Hatsune Miku: Project Diva for the PS Vita, we return to the P4 universe once again in an unexpected way: A rhythm game. Who would’ve thought, eh?

Review - Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain | A Game By Hideo Kojima

Firstly, I would like to thank radkliler for the additional input and screenshots for this review. Cheers, mate.

etal Gear Solid has come a long way since it first saw the light of day in 1998. The original title was an ambitious game with blocky polygons and muddy textures, but jam packed with great voice work, excellent gameplay, tremendous story and over-the-top cinematic action extravaganza. All these crammed into a two-disc PlayStation video game. Metal Gear Solid has indeed redefined video gaming into what it is today.

Officially a Video Game Journalist

Well, it's been a while.

Since April this year, I've been working as a designer and journalist for a local tech magazine. I wasn't appointed as a writer yet when I first joined, but thanks to the excellent team I was in, and the fact that we were all gamers; I was given a chance to contribute. This opportunity is a stepping stone for me to finally delve into something I was very passionate about: gaming.

Review - Until Dawn | Till Morning Comes

Never have I cringed so badly at horror movie cliches’. Believe me, I cringed plenty of times in Until Dawn by Supermassive Games. Hopeless teenagers? Check. Cabin in the woods? Check. Token jock stereotype? Check. Annoying female character by the name of “Emily”? Check. The list goes on. Now.. I’m not saying that this game is utter bollocks; because it isn’t. It’s surprisingly entertaining and a whole lot more.
