Darksiders II (the sequel to Darksiders) is an action role-playing hack and slash game developed by Vigil Games. It was released August 2012 for Microsoft windows, PS3, Xbox 360 and was a launch title for the Wii U when the console was released in Australian, European, and North American regions in 2012. The Deathinitive edition was released by Nordic Games for the PS4, Xbox One and Windows PCs.

Darksiders III is currently said to be released in 2018.

Well with the long awaited announcement of Darksiders III I decided it was time I replayed Darksiders II but this time the PS4 Deathinitive Edition.

Now the Darksiders series are interlinked with each other, the first game in the series you play through as War. The storyline consists of you being tricked into starting the Apocalypse which then you have to try and stop and clear your name at the same time. In Darksiders II you play through as Death, Brother of War and try to clear his name as well as facing deaths own demons to fight against and finding out who is behind it all. All I know about Darksiders III is you play as fury. Not other details have been released yet.

As I said above both the Darksiders series is a hack and slash games with weapons like scythes, axes, and swords.

The original games themselves are absolutely immense. The story and game play are easy to follow and very fun to play. There is some mild language and a little blood and the finishing moves can be a bit graphic at times.

The Mastered Deathinitive edition is outstanding with graphics plus has had some newer and harder enemies to defeat. Sadly this game has is downsides.

Unfortunately I wasn’t able to complete this game due to some extreme faults and glitches. After the 11th time of glitching out on the Guardian Boss I had to call it. These are not normal glitches either, these causes the console to fully shut down your PS4 so I urge caution on the edition.

Darksiders II 9/10

Deathinitive edition 1/10 (due to unplayable with glitches)

Rory Mcilroy PGA Tour

Rory McIlroy PGA Tour is a golf game by EA Tiburon. It was first announced at E3 2014, and released on July 14, 2015 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, coinciding with the 2015 Open Championship.

Over the years I’d say I have become a major golf game fanatic. It began back on the Sega with European gold tour, cyber Tiger on the PlayStation and later completing very Tiger Woods game on PlayStation 2, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. When I Heard EA had changed the franchise I was rather excited and eager to play it.

When Rory Mcilroy was first released I played it on the Xbox One and honestly have to say it ‘ for me. The swing controls weren’t sensitive enough and the graphics were extremely stuttery on the golf balls movements. Now a couple of years later I decided to give it another go on the PlayStation 4. Just from the game play and controls it was like playing an entirely different game. The controls sensitivity are spot on and the ball movement fluent.

Now to the actual game! To get it up and running the game has an automatic training session built in which ends with a nice detail of you winning the US open for Rory. The career mode itself doesn’t have any new targets than the previous tiger Woods 14 and honestly I would say the trophies and achievements are a lot easier to complete.

One major tournament I believe they should add (and have done for a long time now) is the world Match Play. For a long time now EA have given golfers a challenge mode, Ryder cup (Tiger woods II) Road to Masters/Historic masters moments (Tiger Woods 12) tigers History (Tiger Woods 13) and historical moments (Tiger Woods 14). This time they only added a challenge mode of tricks skill Tests which personally after previous games was an extreme let down. It didn’t give a feel good fun factor.

Found it nice to see the franchise has changed but the start is a bit average 6/10

PlayStation 4 Reviews- Far Cry 4

Far Cry 4 is an open world action-adventure first-person shooter game developed and published by Ubisoft published for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows. It was released on 18 November 2014.

This game begins with your character Arjay arriving in KYRAT.

19145875_10211025441606029_6972977182151054188_n

The first impressions of the game with the third person perspective lead you to believe its being run ruthlessly. At some point you’ll meet the director in charge of PAGAN. At first, seems very friendly, charming almost, needless to say this view doesn’t remain and Arjay is flung into the middle of a civil war (where your role is to help the GOLDEN PATH Rebels) Make sense? **Far cry fans nodding holding controllers**

The Gameplay is basically an open world shooter with the main base of every far cry game to date. The campaign is quite in-depth and there are certain choices to be made which do shape future missions and the overall outcome. Some of the side quests are filled with their own extras which contribute to the story. There are a lot of side quests to choose from including hunting, green running, assassinations, hostage rescue plans and many more. Also on top of all this you can build up your carrying capacity which helps when collecting animal skins and flowers.

I have personally played Far Cry 4 on both the Xbox 360 and now on the PlayStation 4. I have to say the graphics are amazing as ever with the PS4. The loading times seems to differ in comparison to the Xbox 360 as does the fact that on PS4 the game is far less glitchy.

19225440_10211025442366048_4987078467934149909_n

The Far cry 4 gaming experience is far more superior to the others in the franchise including Far Cry Primal. To anyone who enjoys shooters or free roam gaming this is a must play.

10/10

Resident Evil 7 Biohazard

17190500_10210228561764531_5021082348763719994_n

Since the arrival of the next generation consoles, there has been a complete lack of proper survival horrors. Silent Hill PT was announced and a demo was released, but even though the great following and the demand being there, it was cancelled due to fallings out within KONAMI. Even though now it has been confirmed to be back in production (under the new name of Allison Road) the market for survival horror was left pretty empty.

After years of making the Resident Evil franchise into a zombie based shooter CAPCOM have finally made a new edition to the popular series in the form of Resident Evil 7 Biohazard. I’m sure i wasn’t the only sceptic, thinking ‘Yes they may say its a survival horror but it’ll still just be another shooter…’ You’ll be wrong!

It all starts off with the main character, Ethan getting a video message from his wife Mia, who has been missing for years previously. He tracks her to an old abandon house in the middle of a creepy woods, which once belonged to the Baker family. The Bakers had mysteriously disappeared years beforehand leaving the house to rot where it sat.

I don’t want to give too much away as i could ruin the plot for you but i will say it is really twisted and gripping!

I played this without the VR headset and still it had me on the edge of my seat. You cannot relax for a second, a combination of the soundtrack, the creepy setting and realistic graphics you are expecting at every turning something to jump out on you. as you can imagine with a VR this would be ten time worse. The graphics are amazing as mentioned above. The game play and controls are extremely fluent, my only frustration being the ending anticlimactic but it does leave  you wondering whats next in the series.

If you’re like me and a huge survival horror fan, i would put this a s a MUST PLAY! it had me jumping out my seat on many occasions where the unexpected occurs. This has to be one of the best horror games I’ve ever played and I’ve played a lot!  Out of my top 10 of all time this would be classed as third best resident Evil of all time.

17309227_10210228538963961_4321366625147190767_n

10 out of 10. I cannot wait to play this on the VR!
