Why Warlock Wins – DOTABUFF

Any time Dota gets a big patch it’s always really interesting to see what heroes slip through the cracks into the realm of overpowered. With so many options to choose from, the meta generally gets defined by a few heroes that find early success and then people tend to stop looking for new options. In some cases, incredibly broken heroes will go undetected until many months after a patch. We saw this scenario play out at TI9 when OG pulled out this Aghanim’s Scepter rush carry Io that was completely…

Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD Remaster for PlayStation 4 Reviews

Ultimately Shin Megami Tensei 3 HD Remaster is a perfectly acceptable port of a cult classic PS2 RPG. Playing this at the same time as Mass Effect Legendary Edition has definitely coloured my perception of what we should expect from a remaster, but despite the fact it doesn’t have AI upscaled textures and 4K60fps presentation, it’s still a masterful example of how to build atmosphere in a game while still keeping players engaged, instead of bored. It also features Dante from the Devil May Cry series, which always helps. Source…

Review – Hood: Outlaws & Legends (PC)

A fantastic concept with a few too many glaring issues in its current state. Hood: Outlaws and Legends is a multiplayer centric, Grimdark take on the famous tale of Robin Hood and the Merry Men. Two teams of four Outlaws must infiltrate a state-owned military encampment, pickpocket a key from the Sheriff of Nottingham, and steal the chest from inside the vault before the other team can stop you. Conceptually ground-breaking with excellent teamwork and gameplay mechanics, Hood appears to be a steal for the low price of £27; but…
