Assassin's Creed: Liberation review

Assassin's Creed: Liberation came out on PS Vita back in 2012, on the same day that the main series game came out on consoles. Featuring not only a different story, but a new protagonist, Liberation provided a completely different experience to the home console series. Over a year later, the HD remake finds its way to consoles and PC. It originally received mixed reviews, but now it's received a graphical update, as well as a few game play tweaks here and there, is it on par with the main series? Read the full review to find out!

The Wolf Among Us Episode 2 - Smoke and Mirrors review

There will be SPOILERS for the first episode in this review, so if you haven't played yet, stop reading! 

Telltale Games are on fire right now. The Walking Dead Season 2 launched a couple of months ago, to praise from critics and gamers alike, and they have at least two huge new series planned for the near future. But aside from those, there is The Wolf Among Us. Based on the comic book series, "Fables", it contains a whole host of fairytale characters, who have been forced out of their homeland, into the New York district of Fabletown. Using magic to conceal their true identities, they try to lead normal lives, but Fabletown is a dark place. Drugs, prostitutes and murder are as rife for the Fables (fairytale characters) as they are for the humans, or "mundies". So the Sheriff of Fabletown, Bigby Wolf, has to step in. The first episode was a fantastic introduction to the world and characters of The Wolf Among Us, and episode two picks up exactly where the first ended. Will the second episode, "Smoke and Mirrors", live up to the high standards set by the phenomenal first one? Read on to find out...

LocoCycle (Xbox 360) review

Twisted Pixel have given us some fantastic titles in the past. From The Maw, to 'Splosion Man, to Comic Jumper, each one has been vastly different to the last, and utterly unique. Their latest title, LocoCycle, is the story of a highly advanced combat motorcycle called I.R.I.S. (for the sake of the review, we'll call her Iris), and Pablo, a simple mechanic. It was one of the Xbox One launch titles, and has now been ported to the Xbox 360. Does it live up to the high standards set by Twisted Pixel's earlier titles? Read on to find out.
