I’m currently located in London, UK but I’ve also lived in the USA and NZ. I blog, shoot films and take photos. I’m all about video games, music, film, and some sports. Ok so I’m interested in other things like bats, robots and pizza but those are my main interests. I am currently writing on PS3blog.net in my own spare time and I hope you enjoy what you read.

[PS3 Preview] DmC: Devil May Cry

July 18, 2012 | | 2 Comments

Devil May Cry has been given a reboot and the new Dante has not gone down well with the hardcore fans who were quick to judge like a father with his daughter’s new boyfriend. So when I got a chance to try out the new reboot I was apprehensive myself to see if their concerns are as bad as feared or if they should not be worried by Ninja Theory’s intentions.

[PS3 Review] Syndicate

May 30, 2012 | | 4 Comments

Syndicate is a reboot that nobody seems to have asked for, especially not one that completely changes the genre from an isometric tactical game to first person shooter, rendering it beyond recognisable. Sure, we miss it and would probably welcome an HD remake, but making it virtually incomparable with its former entries? That’s akin to EA digging up your late gran and slapping in a bionic eye and an arm that turns into a tea stirrer so she can make you a cuppa just like you remembered. But is this reboot an improved and welcome revisit or does it add too much milk and not enough sugar? Here’s our review to find out.

April 17, 2012 | | 4 Comments

The first Grand Slam Tennis was originally planned as a PS3 release but EA faulted on its first service, and it never saw the light of day. EA are back with their second try with Grand Slam Tennis 2 which has a few things in its locker: Total Racquet control, tons of official licenses, and full Playstation Move support if you’re feeling active. Now if we could have quiet please, we’ll get started on this review.

Motorstorm Apocalypse Review

March 18, 2011 | | 11 Comments

It was an unfortunate release date that Motorstorm Apocalypse had chosen; it’s no fault (pun not intended) of Evolution Studios, of course, but it does almost highlight the lack of reason for these races to be taken place. Like most earthquake-based movies, the plot isn’t the main draw; it’s the spectacular special effects and the chance to witness a horrific event as entertainment. In this instance, the entertainment is stunning; with collapsing buildings, the ground opening up, and even a tornado, there is always something waiting to completely change the track on the next lap.

Apocalypse is the third game in the series (4th if you include the PSP outing) and sticks to the well established formula of racing in dangerous terrain, avoiding environmental hazards, and other racers. After the desert, a pacific island, and the arctic, Motorstorm has headed to urban pastures, but, obviously, this wouldn’t be exciting enough, so enter the earthquake. In fact, it hasn’t even deemed an earthquake dangerous enough, as the Apocalypse subtitle eludes, it’s the end of civilization and there are two warring factions to drive between whilst you race, if the constant earthquakes changing the track wasn’t enough.

Killzone 3 Review

February 19, 2011 | | 17 Comments

The British Space Nazis are coming! But don’t worry, Sev and Rico are on hand to quell their invasion by ignoring orders, shooting a lot and using a variety of vehicles to well shoot a lot more. It may aspire to be like a gritty war movie but it actually shares more in common with a classic buddy flick. Sev and Rico are like a videogame equivalent of Tango & Cash, Riggs & Murtaugh or even Neal & Del from Planes, Trains & Automobiles as they journey across Helghan via, Tanks, Exoskeletons, Infiltrators and whatever else they can get their hands on. Heck they even scream in unison whenever they crash each said vehicle… which is pretty much every time they get in one. I kept expecting one of them to quip “I’m getting too old for this sh*t”! Thankfully they are not but is Killzone 3 in the zone or a helghastly abomination of a videogame that ought to be killed?
