Game of The Year 2015

It’s finally here, the big goat or something? Game of the Year can mean many things, to Matthew and Kyle it’s a game that does something special, but not necessarily perfectly. Perhaps that means games that step into uncharted waters and return triumphant, or titles that scale the mountains of others before them to reach new heights of excellence. Whichever its nature, 2015 delivered a lot of potentials; Rise of the Tomb Raider, Splatoon, The Witcher III: Wild Hunt, and the list doesn’t end there!

Best Soundtrack Of 2015

Kyle and Matthew celebrate some of their favourite videogame soundtracks of the year, from titles like; Destiny The Taken King, Persona 4 Dancing All Night, and Halo 5: Guardians, to name but a few. This award is all about the music and how well it gels with the rest of the experience. Naturally, we don’t own any of the game music sampled within and are not profiting from it.

Review – Rise of the Tomb Raider

You wouldn’t believe how many times Lara forgot to jump over spike pits, drowned in depths of submerged caves, and had murderous run-ins with woodland predators who exhibited an unhealthy fascination with her throat, over the course of this review process. No, I totally was not the one at fault here; my gameplay was flawless throughout, but feel free to donate whatever ancient Byzantine coins you can spare to her recovery fund…

Review – Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege

Did someone say FAMAS? Not to spoil my review that I would encourage you to read in full, but I was tempted to make the argument that the FAMAS (the gun I force myself to use in every game) is the only redeeming element of Rainbow Six Siege. In all fairness though, even that’s not fun.
