Sea of Thieves by Rare is a game all about wish fulfillment of the highest order. It’s also one of those rare (heh) flashes of brilliant game design where someone has seen a niche in the market which isn’t being properly filled and so Rare have managed to jump into the gap and fill it. […]Read More Sea of Thieves review – Why is the purpose of games always gone?!
You know what really bothers me about Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice? Something which made me feel really extremely silly and therefore irritated with developers Ninja Theory for making me look and feel silly. Have you heard about the whole controversy that surrounded the game’s save files? The game itself even outright tells you that if you […]Read More Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice review – You must be mad!
Foreword to the review: this will be a review of two parts. A standard review (shorter than usual) for the overall game followed by score and Pros and Cons, all of which will be spoiler free. This will be followed by a more in-depth story-review which I expect to be very spoiler heavy, I will […]Read More Doki Doki Literature Club review – Hej Hej Monika! Hej Hej Hej Monika!
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?
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
Mount and Blade: Warband, published in 2010, is ostensibly a sequel to the original M&B by TaleWorlds Entertainment (along with Paradox). The reality is that with an only modified gameplay features, map and factions, Warband is more an expansion to the original game than a whole new game in its own right. One might wonder then why we don’t simply […]Read More Mount and Blade: Warband retrospectacle – Okay, you come at me and I will hit you with my axe. Then you come and I will hit you…
Ah Stellaris, we have had a love/hate relationship. Our cold metal machine based emotion cores have grown fonder over the years however, and I can feel arcs of electricity between us now as we take over the observable universe with our sentient machine race. It’s time to talk about the dawn… of the synthetics. Dun […]Read More Stellaris: Synthetic Dawn
Allow me to spoil this review for you slightly… I mean, normally I’ll keep any major revelations until after the jump so that you have to click there and we get more delicious, delicious clicks. 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!
5 Games in 5 Minutes does exactly what it says on the tin. We have a number of games which we are either too busy or are simply not worth playing fully. With these games it is difficult to provide a full and accurate review. So, instead, we briefly play the game (enough to garner […]Read More 5 Games in 5 Minutes: Episode 1 – Day of Infamy, 8-Bit Invaders, DeSync, We Need to Go Deeper, Space Hulk Deathwing
