This Month has seen the release of a number of BIG games.  Titles such as Dragon Age: Inquisition, Super Smash Bros and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will be popular on plenty of people’s Christmas lists.

Far Cry 4 impressions


Far Cry 3 was without doubt an outstanding and ground breaking first person shooter.  Far Cry 4 looks to take what number 3 did so well and keep on trying to make things better.


I’ve just played my first couple of hours on Far Cry 4 and am itching to get on and play some more.

Following my previous post of first impressions HERE we have continued to enjoy playing with Phonics fun with Biff, Chip And Kipper on our 2DS.


Moo has played through the initial Stages 1 games and activities that focused on sounds and is now beginning on stages 1+ and 2 which are more focused on simple phonetic words such as “bug, Dad and pot.”

Assassins Creed Unity and Rogue


The Assassins Creed series has steadily been bringing out new titles since 2007.  They have become some of my favourite games and are possibly the longest running series of games that I have brought and played through every release.

This year though the series splits it’s releases into two titles, both being released at the same time; Unity for PC, Playstation 4 and the Xbox One and Rogue for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.

Both games look absolutely amazing and continue the long running battle between the Assassins and the Templars.

Evolve Alpha impressions


Evolve is a game that caught my attention quickly when I read previews of it and saw trailers showing off its unique take on cooperative multiplayer.

Evolve sees two “teams” go up against each other.  On one team is a group of 4 hunters made up of a medic, a trapper, an assault and a support.  The other is a monster!


The monster is a one player team that goes up against the four hunters, as you’d expect that monster is very powerful but with good teamwork the hunters are able to take the Monster down.

Nintendo 2DS impressions


Last week I received a Nintendo 2DS.  It’s a handheld gaming console, very similar in style to the 3DS but offered without the ability to display games in 3D, hence a smaller price tag.  Every 3DS game works on the 2DS, it is a budget version of the more popular 3DS.

The device is well built and feels solid to hold and use.  My 2 year old has got hold of it a couple of times and I have at no point felt concerned that she could break or damage it.


The user interface is wonderfully straightforward to use, packing a lot of information and options into a small space.  The two screens are really well utilised in the menus and allow you to find whatever you want quickly and easily.
