Welcome to the new site

We have been through a bit of a redesign lately and are just making some finishing touches to the new layout. Let us know what you think in the comments and any suggestions are always welcome.

New features include our Twitch.TV stream and Youtube channel where you’ll be able to watch TPSou fail miserably at DayZ and also catch up with any other PC gaming that’s going on. We have also made the archive much easier to search through so have a browse.

If you register with the site I can promise we will never sell your details or anything like that. It just helps us keep track of who is using the site and hopefully we will be able to add some exciting community features/giveaways over the next few months.

Happy gaming!

The Walking Dead: Episode One (PC)

They would walk 500 miles…

It seems over the last few years I’ve become more and more interested in TV series with high production values. I loved Band of Brothers, devoured most of House, and have recently become enamoured with Game of Thrones. Maybe I’m getting old, or maybe my Literature-studying background is enjoying TV with some depth to it. This fascination with any show with a ridiculous budget led me to ‘The Walking Dead’, I’d never read the comic books, but I love a good zombie story so bought a box set. Now the Telltale game’s released and here’s why it’s important.

Sniper Elite V2 (Xbox 360)

Somewhere, over the rainbow… *squelch*

Sniper Elite V2 is the latest game from the reasonably prolific British developer Rebellion, their back-catalogue includes Alien vs Predator, The Simpsons Game, and Neverdead. What do all of those games have in common? They all had some kind of brilliant hook, something that set them apart; they were also all painfully mediocre games, and now Sniper Elite V2 is here to continue that legacy.

Ridge Racer: Unbounded (360)

I am the passenger… argh where are you going?

I approached Ridge Racer: Unbounded as someone who has never played a Ridge Racer game. I didn’t have a Playstation in the early days and then the reviews of a few subpar titles put me off. When I saw BugBear (of Flatout and Flatout 2 fame) were involved I knew I had to get it. Flatout 2 was one of the best racing games I have ever played. That it never reached a consistent online community and that the sequel was outsourced to some rookies who completely ruined it was a terrible thing. That BugBear went on to shape the Ridge Racer in their own image, on the other hand, was a wonderful thing.

Rayman Origins (360 & Vita)

Grab the things, grab all the things.


The first game I remember really getting into and understanding what I was doing (sorry, Elite) was Super Mario World. I loved the world that felt coherent, the crazy inhabitants, the colours, and the gameplay that rewarded a number of different skill. No game had replicated that kind of feeling, until now.

Prototype 2 (Xbox 360)

Come flay with me, let’s flay, let’s flay away…

I went out and bought Prototype 2 as soon as I could on launch day on the way home from work. I’ve played every open-world action adventure game like this that I can think of, and from Grand Theft Auto 3 to the present day I’ve never failed to be astounded at the worlds that we’re allowed to go play in. Admittedly that world is nearly always New York, but still, it’s exciting. I’ve sunk just over eleven hours into this game and completed it on normal, and here’s what I think.

Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness Episode 3 (PC)

This game’s acronym is longer than most titles.

This is the third episode of the Penny Arcade Adventures series after a year-long hiatus and a change of developer. Zeboyd Games have taken up the reins (creators of the excellent Cthulhu Saves the World) and switched the game away from modern 3D look and carried on with their retro-but-charming early Final Fantasy style.

Orion: Dino Beatdown (PC)

Welcome, to Jurassic {error} [area not defined]

Some games sell well because of reviews, some sell through word of mouth, some through the power of advertising. Every now and then, a game sells simply because it includes dinosaurs. The confusingly titled ‘Orion: Dino Beatdown’ is on sale on Steam right now for £6.29 (usual price £6.99) and we’ve taken a look.

Minecraft (Xbox 360)

Whistle while you work…

Minecraft has been a huge part of PC culture for a few years now. A breakthrough indie hit for Markus ‘Notch’ Persson, it gave a renewed hope to thousands of struggling game developers that they too could hit the big-time. Minecraft sold millions, and it’s easy to see why. There’s no story, and little in the way of objectives, but there is freedom and creativity. From these ingredients players all over the world have created amazing things, from simple Youtube videos to programmable calculators. Now the sensation that is Minecraft has come to Xbox Live Arcade, in a slightly different form.
