Review - Only In The Order: 1886 Would Knights Call In Air Strikes

At no point playing The Order: 1886 did I have anything less than a great time, but equally, I did not find myself doing anything I haven't already done before. It is a vexing proposition, should a game be punished for not trying to be something it isn’t? Must all videogames aspire to push their gameplay forward somehow to be considered great?

Review - Dying Light, Shining In Places

As the game started and I parachuted down into the streets of Haran, I am quickly thrown into the action being bitten by an infected and attacked by Rais’ thugs. Thanks to the quick intervention of Jade and Amir, I am able to escape and survive, though Amir is not so lucky.

Matthew Plays - Cherry Tree High I! My! Girls!

Matthew sits down and records his first video where he begrudgingly plays (for as long as he can) Cherry Tree High I! My! Girls!, a game about a Teen pop star that unfortunately isn't Hatsune Miku and some sort of Comedy Club?

Review - Evolve; It's Asymmetric

We descend into the foetid jungles of Evolve, in pursuit of terrifyingly alien creatures, driven by the thrill of the hunt. How far will the allure of the big hunt take us? Just how thrilling does it get? And perhaps most importantly, how long do jetpacks take to refill?

Review - Midnight Star, Bringing The Combat Puzzle To Mobile

You are amongst the best humanity has to offer, pushing off into the unknown, following a hint of alien life. But of course, as with all things given such ominous names as, the ‘Artifact’, something goes horribly wrong, and the aliens being hostile isn’t the half of it.

Midweek Musings - 06/02/15 Actually, Space Dragons Sound Kind Of Awesome

While we are well aware it is no longer ‘midweek’, now is a good a time as any to consider the impact that Dragon Age Inquisition, ‘…the most successful launch in BioWare history.’, (Andrew Wilson, EA CEO) could have on the next Mass Effect game, so strap in for some wild speculation! Just as warning, there are some mild spoilers for the Mass Effect games, but nothing critical that would spoil the experience for anyone unfamiliar.

Review - Grim Fandango, Strange, Yet Symbolically Compelling

It has always been trivially easy to label Grim Fandango a timeless classic, its place secure in pantheon of nineties adventure games. But it has not been so trivial to play, and validate such a claim, until now that is. With the release of Grim Fandango Remastered we are pressed with the difficult question; just how timeless is it?
