This review requires acknowledgement of a couple of things: the last Assassin’s Creed I played prior to Odyssey was Black Flag back in 2013, thus missing out on AC: Origins, the first of the new style of Assassin’s Creeds. I mention this because I am going to spend a lot of time talking about “new” […]Read More Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey review – An excuse to yell THIS IS SPARTA!
Star Wars has been having a bit of a hard time of it lately, and that’s a damned shame because for me I actually think it might be my favourite fictional universe. To try and make that clear, I’ve had a 3000-word essay on my thoughts on Star Wars sitting on my hard drive since […]Read More Star Wars: Fallen Order review – I feel a disturbance in my lower jaw
Well, push some ecstasy up me bum and call me Molly, Shadow of Mordor got a sequel. This was something of a surprise to me because honestly while I knew Shadow of Mordor received a decent amount of critical praise and sales, I also got the impression this was mostly because it was just a […]Read More Shadow of Mordor review – Loot box? What’s a loot box?
I feel like I need to preface this review with my previous exposure to isometric RPGs. I’m too young to have fully appreciated “old school” RPGs such as Baldurs gate, Planescape: Torment and Wasteland. I did indeed play Baldurs gate and Baldurs gate 2.

When it comes to writing reviews for an episodic game I learned my lesson from my attempt to review each individual episode of The Raven, despite differences in each episode, at the end of the day you do just end up saying the same thing about each episode. It made my vocabulary feel a lot […]Read More The Wolf Among Us review – I’ll huff and I’ll puff
Assassin’s Creed is a series that has always and will always hold a special place in my heart. It’s hard for me to say what exactly it is about the series that so hooked me way back when I was jumping about as Altair, but it’s irrelevant because it happened. Since AC2 I have counted […]Read More Retrospectacles: Assassin’s Creed 3 – Everybody makes mistakes
Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons (or, more simply: “Brothers”), developed by Starbreeze Studios, is a big name now and in fact it has been since release.
