How would you like to be a God? Games have given us the chance to pretend to be a god many times. With games like populous we tinkered and played at being the almighty controller of our little people’s lives.
Well now there is a new God sim and it plays unlike anything you have ever played before. I’m talking about Tethered on PlayStation VR. (more…)
Space, the final frontier. These are the voyages of the Starship Timey Wimey. It’s five and a bit day’s mission, to explore strange new controls, to seek out new loot and new customisations, to boldly go where no console has gone before… cue the theme music!

The curious world of console games realised through interactive computerised Lego avatars and environments has been around for a while. The original Star Wars Lego games were innovative, new and above all fun – and helped kick-start a seemingly 24/7 production line of games. Some work well; others’ charm is sometimes offset by over-complicated controls. And with yet another return to the Star Wars universe I was wondering if the creative well might have run dry.
I needn’t have worried. The fun and charm are still there in spades, along with perfectly timed humor that is genuinely side-splitting on occasion, and often just from something you’ve seen in the background.
It was exciting news when Doctor Who Lego was announced a while back, and even more exciting when it was confirmed the Doctor would be in the new Lego Dimensions game. And it’s not just a token nod: what we have here is a full level pack with a lot of content, all very faithful to the show and imbued with its charm and wit. From the Legofied title sequence you can tell this game is going to be fun. The titles are a nicely translated version of the 12th Doctor’s, but are jam packed with Dr Who themed lego hi-jinx in the background.
