“Firaxis has definitely done a phenomenal job with XCOM: Enemy Unknown, and Enemy Within just made the original game so much better with added content. However, I wish they could have done more to integrate Enemy Unknown’s story with Within’s. But they failed to do so, leaving all of Enemy Unknown’s original story completely unchanged.”
“Contrast is a game that has a lot of potential. Unfortunately, the finished product just isn’t something I could justify spending money on. If I wasn’t a PlayStation Plus member, I would never have played it, and that’s a shame.”

“It’s a hot sticky night in Leeds and I’m backstage at the sizzling Sirloin Saturday’s last night of their sold out ‘Medium Rare’ 2013 UK tour. The Pop Rock 80’s loving sensation have clocked up many a month on the road and are now set to ‘Steak’ their claim for the crown at the latest worldwide ‘Battle of the Rock band’ competition.”
“Gravity Rush is easily one of the best, if not the best game available for the Playstation Vita so far. It’s highly innovative gameplay, storyline, and beautiful presentation make for a visually impressive and in-depth action title for the handheld.”
