“Like Advance Wars but with Gundam” – Warborn (PS4 Review)

Posted by - July 11, 2020
I’m going to acknowledge the proverbial elephant in the room: Advance Wars. Any time we’re talking about a 2.5d turn-based strategy game, if you don’t think I’m going to bring up the greatest turn-based strategy series of all time, then you’re wrong (for the avoidance of doubt, best real-time strategy game series is, of course,

Bringing Out The Dead – A Plague Tale: Innocence (PS4 Review)

Posted by - July 28, 2019
Whilst wondering ankle-deep through the remains of a plague-ridden town, the blood-soaked bones of the freshly slaughtered infected brushing the feet of my character as she desperately prevents herself from looking down at the grotesque mess of corpses, a thought occurred to me. This is the first time that I’ve been face-to-face with The Plague

Posted by - April 30, 2019

Someday You’ll Return Shines a Light on a New Trailer

Posted by - March 13, 2019
Video games aren't necessarily known for trying out new ideas when it comes to giving people the creeps. It's mostly just the same old cliches of zombies, aliens and tired old Cthulhu tropes. So when VultureHound saw this trailer, we were immediately intrigued. It begins with a man giving a group of young children a

Speed Kills – FutureGrind (PS4 Review)

Posted by - February 23, 2019
For some reason, I keep picking to review games with punishing difficulty scales. I don't know whether I'm discovering some previously unrealised sado-masochistic urge, though let's be honest, it's always been there. I've watched all the Sharknado films, more than once for example. Despite being renowned as probably the worst gamer of the VultureHound team, I
