I did it. I fuuuuuucking did it. I’ve mentioned in the past that my experience with Souls-like games is pretty limited. I dabbled with Bloodborne, but only barely got past the first boss and in Dark Souls I reached Quelaag but never killed her. In short, I got enough of a taste of both, but […]Read More Elden Ring review – Art thou also maidenless?
Even now, I still can’t help but being blown away by the sheer level of popularity generated by Stray. It’s gameplay trailer back in June (2022) very obviously took the internet by storm, so it was a bit of a shock to me to discover it had teaser trailers dating back to 2020. One only […]Read More Stray review – I taut I taw a puddy-tat
I’m gonna preface this review by saying that in my “About” section on MMG I say that I don’t like racing games or sports games. I’ve had that there since we started the site in 2011 and it remains true to this day. I’ve always argued that I prefer games with a greater focus on […]Read More Forza V Horizons review – Vroom vroom motherfucker
At some point when the Earth was new and God was a boy, all the way back in late 2016 when the idea of a global pandemic was a subject for the history books as something that only happened after world wars and would never ever happen again, I did an Early Access video review […]Read More Ghost of a Tale review – Sleekit, cowrin, tim’rous beastie
I like horror games. This might come as a surprise given how infrequently I talk about them, but that’s because I do not deal well with horror. I need lots of tea breaks, pauses where I try to get my heart rate out of the thousands and comforting reassurance that the big scary monsters are […]Read More Alien: Isolation review: Maybe I’m the monster? No, the monsters are definitely the monsters
We’ve all seen the trend, a trend which is now at the point of its popularity where it’s getting “overdone” and so people may be moving to greener pastures soon. But in the meantime, people are still swarming to Battle Royale games and at this point even the big guns of the likes of EA […]Read More Vidya Round Up – Battle Royales
I have something of an odd relationship with Life is Strange. I overall have pretty favourable memories about the first one, which is reflected in my review. I had my niggles, but I thought that the game largely did a lot right with its storytelling. Having said that, I’ve also repeatedly had discussions with Lamios about this and […]Read More Life is Strange 2 review – This is why My Hero Academia would never work
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
Since Dear Esther I have to admit I can be partial to a well-done Walking Simulator. The Stanley Parable, for instance is a personal favourite and remains an incredibly smart and amusing game. However, these days far too many games which fall into this category rely too much on the same tricks Dear Esther did. Primarily relying on pretty graphics and a vague, “you-decide-what-it-all-means” story […]Read More Firewatch review – I’m a hipster and I’m okay!
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
