Review written by Lamios. The King’s Bounty series is the very definition of niche, and it most surely isn’t for everyone. While the combat is generally enjoyable and moderately challenging, the particular flavour or humour is often grating and just as often inconsistent in tone. Furthermore, if Blizzard games are known to be polished if […]Read More King’s Bounty: Dark Side review – If only you knew the lack of power of the Dark Side
“May Terra guide you Admiral Wei, treat those Raltek’s to the indomitable might of a Human Imperial fleet!” my voice is clear over the interstellar radio, carrying all the way from Earth, the cradle of our civilisation, to the distant fleet of Terra’s Fury. Half a dozen cruisers, 20 destroyers and the same and a […]Read More Stellaris review – *Imperial March plays distantly*
Early in 2013 me and my friends played a closed game of Neptune’s Pride 2: Triton, before even the glorious saga that was the war of the Space Bears.

A game where you can fight an array of alien species whilst researching the next scientific innovation which will allow you to improve your terraforming […]Read More Lords of the Black Sun review – Civilisation in SPAAAAAACE!
Xenonauts by Goldhawk Interactive is billed as the “spiritual successor” for UFO: Enemy Unknown, also known as X-COM: UFO Defense from the early 90’s (thanks Wikipedia!). I.e. back in the day when I was more concerned with learning how to walk and breath simultaneously instead of complex and novel turn-based strategy. X-COM is a turn-based strategy game […]Read More Xenonauts review – Certainty of death, small chance of success, what are we waiting for?
So you’re busy, you’ve got about an hour before you have to deal with some stuff in the real world. That world into which we rarely venture. I understand that some people, for bizarre reasons, don’t have the time to sit down and play six straight hours of Skyrim or Mass Effect 3 and so […]Read More Five Nights at Freddy’s and Mini Metro – Some Ideas for Your Little Minutes
