Skiing Fred Review by Gaming on Batteries

Fred and Gaming on Batteries go way back (previous coverage) and it is our pleasure to bring our readers a review of Fred’s latest exploit- Skiing.

Shards of Time Review by Gaming on Batteries

Hidden Object games are all about the graphics (how well do the objects you are searching for fit into the scene?) and the storyline (if the storyline sucks, generally so will the game). If either one is “off” the whole game comes off as second rate. Shards of Time is a glowing example of how ... Read More»

Hotline Miami for PSN Review

Hotline Miami is a fascinating title with loads of bloody action and a compelling story that will leave you shaken once it’s all over. At least I found it very chilling because of the weird vibe it has. And is it addicting? Absolutely! I thought after the first few deaths I’d wanna quit, but I ... Read More»
