PSTV Review Header

REVIEW IN BRIEF > A strange entry into the hardware landscape, the PlayStation TV doesn’t have a clear purpose in life. Its ability to stream PS4 games to another location in the house is perhaps its most appealing feature, especially for a family, but is hardly a “must have”. Playing Vita games on a big screen is another touted feature but its implementation is problematic. The PlayStation TV is sure to keep a very specific niche happy but for anyone else it is waste of money. Read the rest of this entry »

As an Ubisoft game it adheres rigidly to the formulas the studio has put in place and will keep players entertained, provided they aren’t currently playing any other Ubisoft games.

Dragon Age Inquisition Review Header

Available on XBO, PS4, 360, PS3 and PC l Published by Electronic Arts l Developed by Bioware l Classified G l Supports 1-4 players

REVIEW IN BRIEF > Dragon Age Inquisition should please fans alienated from the last iteration with its clearer plot, larger map areas and improved combat. Be prepared to sink many hours into one the best-realised fantasy worlds in gaming.  Just make sure you’ve played the earlier games first, because context is everything.
