Hard Reset Redux: Performance Analysis

The main changes from the original title come from different implementation of post processing and various effects. A number of things have changed from AO design and AA methods, and there's been a very clear focus on mass optimisations. For the most part the redux has been

My Mum Review

So this will be my last review for quite some time, and in an effort to do something at the community's behest, I neglected to realise that adding a "your mom" option is never a sensible idea in a poll - it always wins. I am a man of my word however, and a review of my mum beat

Shadwen: Performance Analysis

Performance was actually fantastic. The game looks super slick, not quite as bright and shiny as Trine, but still pretty damn excellent. Despite the heavy focus on physics my system didn't take a remotely large hit to performance except when fire got involved.

Shadwen Review

Shadwen is the new piece of IP from Trine developers Frozenbyte, diving head first into the foray of 3D stealth adventure after the poorly received Trine 3. Despite being shiny new in terms of character and story, there are clear throwbacks to their old titles, particularly in

Stellaris: Performance Analysis

Performance overall was stellar, though the game was not without its occasional peculiarities. My main gripe was tooltips bugging out constantly, which while not game breaking, did become immensely infuriating after two dozen hours. It would show icons but text would be invisible

Stellaris Review

Stellaris is a new breed of 4X space strategy by Paradox Interactive, labelled as a new breath of fresh air in an otherwise heavily cloned genre. The game sets itself closer to the likes of Master of Orion than some of the latest titles like Civilisation or Endless Space, and

Fragmented: Performance Analysis

Obviously as an Early Access title it's bound to have its fair share of issues. To my surprise, performance wasn't as bad as expected, and besides the odd AI glitch, the game actually relatively stable in almost every regard. There are a couple of minor animation issues

Fragmented Impressions

Fragmented is a new sci-fi survival game that's just jumped on Early Access, swapping stone axes and dinosaurs for beam rifles and Mass Effect style dune buggies. It has similar RPG elements to ARK, offering level ups that unlock additional crafting recipes, and features a fairly

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada Performance Analysis

Performance was OK. I'm mildly disappointed that an UE4 title doesn't have multi-GPU profiles, but that's merely a luxury request. The game is riddled with bugs and glitches, although the performance in general across my hardware was about average. Being an UE4 game, CPU usage

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada Review

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada is a fresh new take on the Warhammer IP from Tindalos Interactive, opting for a semi-RTS style. Instead of creating an engine in-house, or using one the many strategy engines available, they've opted to wow players with the newer Unreal Engine 4.

The Collider 2: Performance Analysis

Performance overall was totally solid. There were no nasty surprises besides the odd control glitch on the main menu (sometimes the controller refused to navigate so I was forced to use the mouse). Main gameplay seemed perfectly well bug tested, and I never really noticed
