On Tour With Watch Dogs Legion: Barbican Estate

“For the third chapter in this series, we continue our exploration of London by travelling south from Camden and arriving at the Barbican Estate, home to one of the most distinct and unique housing developments in the Capital as well as the cities own Museum. A great example of the Brutalist Architectural style prominent during the post war reconstruction period of history, today a Grade II listed area with its prominent concrete aesthetic and appearance that encapsulates the design approach of that period of time. A fascinating location to discover and explore.” Continue reading On Tour With Watch Dogs Legion: Barbican Estate

Biohazard 4 Original Soundtrack and Visual Booklet – Review

“stature and grandeur as the titles grew in strength and scope with some notable tracks featured over the years. Of all the music in the series, my personal favourite up until playing the fourth chapter was the entry theme of Chris Redfield from Code Veronica¬†which as a young impressionable gamer set a precedent for the adventure ahead. With the evolution of the series onto the GameCube and stylistically a change in both location and tone from the earlier games when I first experienced this title it was a somewhat radical departure from what had come before, the pomp and bombastic tones and musical themes experienced in the earlier games replaced with a more subdued score that did in part allude to the work of its predecessors but almost an homage.” Continue reading Biohazard 4 Original Soundtrack and Visual Booklet – Review

On Tour With Watch Dogs Legion: Camden

“locations as featured in the game Watch Dogs Legion to their digital equivalence. Each review will feature a distinct part of the Capital with many of the most well known and famous buildings and structures represented as well as a few personal hidden treasures from that area. For the second chapter in this new series, we continue our exploration of the city by moving away from the historic quarter of Westminster and Parliament Square and arriving at the independent, bohemian spirited Borough of Camden. A new addition to the Open World recreation of London, unique to this game and an interesting time to explore both the virtual and real world versions of this part of the City. From its iconic bridge to the quiet, serenity of the waterways, any visit to this part of London is a memorable experience but also to see how transformative the events of the last year have been resulting in an alternate, historical portrayal of the future.” Continue reading On Tour With Watch Dogs Legion: Camden

On Tour With Watch Dogs Legion: Parliament Square

“For the first chapter in this new series, we begin our exploration of the virtual and real world environment at the North Bank of the River Thames standing on the corner of Lambeth Bridge overlooking the Palace of Westminster and the city stretching to the East. It’s one of my favourite views of the Capital, always humbling, always memorable. This first chapter will focus primarily on the area of Parliament Square, the main area of operations for Dedsec and their pub based headquarters travelling the short distance from Lambeth Bridge to Westminster Station. It’s time to explore the virtues of the city in the real and digital world.” Continue reading On Tour With Watch Dogs Legion: Parliament Square

Valiant Hearts – PS4 Review

“Utilising a living comic book presentation style with an artistry and aesthetic more akin to the printed page, Valiant Hearts plays unlike a normal traditional Ubisoft studios title you might expect, narrative is key and at the heart of this expansive and encompassing tale that encapsulates many of the great battles and conflicts of this period from the declaration of war with the assassination of the Archduke Ferdinand of the Austrian-Hungarian empire to the Battle of the Somme and across the Western Front.” Continue reading Valiant Hearts – PS4 Review

Shadow Of The Tomb Raider – PS4: First Impressions

“I enjoyed the first Tomb Raider game in the series, equally, shifting to Rise Of The Tomb Raider there was a clear evolution of both the style and world around you that felt like tentative steps to a more open world experience without leaving you feeling lost and confused where to go next. I played both these games on the last generation before upgrading to the PS4, whilst there were certain graphical differences between the two it didn’t feel like too much of a sacrifice to play these games between generations in contrast to Dragon Age Inquisition which was almost unplayable at times.” Continue reading Shadow Of The Tomb Raider – PS4: First Impressions
