Gran Turismo 6 (PS3) Review
Releasing Gran Turismo 6 on PS3 after the launch of the PS4 appeared to be a crazy decision, but take one look at GT6 and it is clear that this is a love letter to fans of the series. With a rebuilt physics engine, the best selection of tracks in any racing game, and the heart and soul of the series fully restored, Gran Turismo 6 is an absolute joy to play, and a must-have for motoring fans.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (3DS) Review
The new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot has been nothing short of a huge success, so it was only a matter of times until the heroes in a half-shell made their way to games stores with a series tie-in. Set in-between the series, TMNT for 3DS looks to offer an expansion on the show, and while the game looks and sounds like the show, it is ultimately let down by some disappointingly shallow gameplay. Still a lot of fun for fans however.
