PS4 Dead Nation Apocalypse edition here is our review of Dead Nation this months free game for PS Plus subscribers on PS4. Dead Nation isn’t a bad game but It’s also a game that has been done better on other platforms. Personally I’m a little bored with all the black in the free PS Plus games we have had so far it’s time the PS4 showed a little colour. The graphics in Dead Nation on PS4 are excellent, when you can make them out in all the blackness, what frustrated me is the difficulty curve towards the end of a level when health and ammo is low, the game is unforgiving.
Xbox One Ray Tracing in it’s future rumors coming out of executives at Microsoft suggest they may have a Ray Tracing solution for the Xbox One. This could be a game changer as far as visual quality of games is concerned ushering in a new generation of realistic looking surfaces and lighting that no longer requires baked in light sources and shadows buy dynamically traced light rays bouncing off surfaces in real time.
Samsung Benchmarks U-turn otherwise known as Oh Look I was Right! Last year I rounded on Samsung heavily for their cheating of Benchmarks for the Note 3 and Galaxy s4. Now Samsung has removed the cheat from Android 4.4 being pushed to Note 3 and GS4 I think I was totally justified in calling Samsung out for lying and miss-leading consumers. Lets hope this is the last time a leading smartphone company tried to cheat it’s way to success through benchmarks.
Shadow blade Android Review we have been having loads of fun with Shadow blade a platform game with a fluid control system that works really nicely.

PS4 Dead Nation Apocalypse will be the Free for PS Plus Subscribers game in March 2014. Dead Nation Apocalypse is a top down dual stick shooter with a thirst for zombies. It’s great to see Sony putting so much effort into their PS Plus free games and it sure makes that monthly sub feel like good value for money.
PS4 A Realm Reborn Beta thoughts here are my thoughts on the Final Fantasy 14 reboot. It’s not going to be pretty so if you love FF you may want to skip this video. These are just my thoughts about FF not the PS4 which is capable of much more on display here by Square Enix. FF14 A Realm Reborn appears to be a botched conversion from the PS3 that upgrade the textures but still offers the same compromised game engine that was running on PS3. I can’t see at this stage these inherent issues being sorted before the PS4 release, this is how the engine works end of story.
Ridge Racer Slipstream Android in this Review we take a look at Ridge Racer Slipstream by Namco Bandai and find a wonderful arcade racing game that lives up to the legacy left by Ridge Racer. Sadly it’s not all perfect with some heavy frame rate issues in some of the tracks that even brought the Nexus 5 to it’s knees but thankfully the majority of the game runs just fine.
Xbox One Twitch Support is coming with the launch of Titanfall on March 11th and Xbox One goes one better than PS4 with a cool feature for streamers. Twitch streamers will be able to allow watchers to join their game in progress and play along side them, that is such a killer feature!
Galaxy S5 here is my Galaxy S5 Reaction after a good sleep to think over the impact the Galaxy S5 is going to have in 2014. It’s easy to see Samsung played it safe this time around. I can’t see the S5 is going to be their only model in the S range I suspect we will see a premium handset around the time of the iPhone 6 launch. If not the Samsung may find themselves at the bottom of the Christmas Wishlist. The specs won’t hold up by October 2014.
Galaxy S5 is here, post your reaction to the Galaxy S5. Let us know in the comments. Do you like the look of it? What about the spec? Is the Galaxy S5 camera just what you were hoping for or a disappointment? Let us know in the comments.
Galaxy S5 Leaked early by the looks of it, here is our reaction on seeing what is reportedly the Galaxy S5. So the story goes someone guessed the URL to a holding page at one of the big review sites and struck gold. Until we hear it from Samsung this is all rumor but it sure looks like we know what the Galaxy S5 is packing and it’s not much of a bump over the S4!

Colin McRae Rally Android in this Review I take a look at the remake of Colin McRae Rally for Android. Sadly this is a game that promises much but fails to deliver, for starters its not well optimized for Android 4.4. Constant frame stuttering is apparent throughout and long loading times between levels make for a dull and frustrating experience. Save your money and download a modern racer to your Android you will have more fun that playing a 15 year old game on your modern Android device!
