Review: Valiant Hearts: The Great War

The Ubiart framework engine has had a pretty good year, hasn’t it? In the last 12 months alone we’ve had the fantastic and frantic platformer Rayman Legends followed by dreamy RPG Child of Light – both utilising the Ubiart engine to produce a gorgeous hand-drawn aesthetic. The first impression you get when playing Valiant Hearts is a sense once again of this illustrative style, but its look is distinctive from the other titles using...

Feature: Six things I learnt on my first London Film and Comic-Con

Last week I travelled to London to attend one of the big film and comic-cons of the year, London Film and Comic-Con, held at Earl’s Court. A place where a myriad of comic, film, gaming and television sci-fi and fantasy geeks were going to meet, spend money, have photos taken with their heroes and get autographs. I had previously attended a couple of smaller conventions based mostly on talks, but nothing quite as big as this....

Review: Tomodachi Life

‘Random’. It’s a word bandied around with reckless abandon nowadays; your scatty friend’s sense of humour is ‘random’, that man’s ill-advised hat is ‘so random’, and anyone who’s a stranger is increasingly referred to as ‘some randomer’. Yet randomness is increasingly the bedrock of internet and mainstream comedy, and is also an apt descriptor that is consistently...

Review: Child of Light

Set in the enchanting world of Lemuria, Child of Light is a light-RPG with platforming elements that has a big sense of adventure. Playing as protagonist Aurora, the story begins as she falls into some kind of everlasting sleep. She awakes in the aforementioned land, which has had its sun, moon and stars stolen by a villainous Black Queen – and so begins a charming tale of friendship and bravery. Developed using the UbiArt engine...

Review: Luftrausers

Thrown into the air, hung up like a metal- tipped paper dart that’s now falling, falling through a sea of flak towards the unforgiving ocean. Then with improbable grace the ship rights itself to boost onwards in the direction of your choosing.  This is the military-map brown world of Luftrausers, the latest fruit borne from Dennaton Games, those inscrutable purveyors of instant playability. It’s actually something of a shock to the...

Review: Titanfall

From the makers of Call of Duty comes Titanfall. Activision’s series revolutionised the FPS genre but after legal issues with their bosses, Jason West and Vince Zampella left for sanctuary with EA to develop a new generation of shooter for a new console generation. That’s no small ask so lets see if Titanfall stands head and shoulders above the competition. Story Titanfall is set in the middle of a war between the...
