I’m not going to go so far as to say that I dislike roguelikes. In fact I can immediately name a couple I’ve had a good time with, along with a few darlings of the industry, things like FTL and Binding of Issac. However, for all that, I also think roguelikes in general are not […]Read More For the King review – For the SLOOTS
Multiplayer RPGs. It’s a tough nut to crack when it comes to writing out my thoughts for them. Eagle-eyed readers may have noticed a conspicuous absence of any review of Divinity: Original Sin (the first one) despite the fact that I gave it my game of the year for 2014. This is because I find […]Read More Divinity: Original Sin 2 review – Forgive me father for I have sinned. Again.
It is perhaps a little unfair that pretty much every single review I’ve seen of Arkane Studio’s Prey 2017 (because why would they want to give it its own name when there was a perfectly fine older IP to reboot) immediately begins by comparing it to other games. One could be forgiven for thinking therefore […]Read More Prey review – Not to be confused with Prey or Bioshock

But for this particular article I see absolutely no point in being coy. Given my review for the base game […]Read More Witcher 3 DLC review – Blood and Stone
There have been few moments in the past year or so in which I have woken up to a feeling of abject horror and despair, you know that feeling which overwhelmed you when you heard Trump was President? For me, it was upon hearing of the controversy surrounding Mass Effect Andromeda, with early previews and […]Read More Mass Effect Andromeda review – Jesus Christ Ryder, they’re MINERALS!
Honestly I kind of spaffed my load early when it comes to what I think about the Witcher 3. I said it in our 2015 Gaming Awards but I’ll go ahead and say it again now. The Witcher 3 is not just mine and Tim’s Game of the Year for 2015, but quite honestly I […]Read More Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt review – Triss and Yen have competition…
