On this week’s agenda; videogames, old and new with just a tendril of disappointment, followed by a smothering of VR, some of which is straight up depressing, for people who like REAL games anyway! Enjoy!

Review - Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

The Phantom Pain is the kind of game that I just can’t help but talk about, there’s so much going on here; core gameplay, mechanics, narrative, it’s all so different from the industry norm. It’s because of that, the time needed to properly digest the story, and my own reluctance to proofread this volume of text, that this review is so tardy. While I’ve endeavoured to not spoil anything related to the plot or characters, I do discuss the quality of the game’s later hours in some detail, and spoil parts of Ground Zeroes, the game that sets up The Phantom Pain.

This Week In Videogames – 13/09/2015

When my Twitter feed is littered with the same meaningless hash tag it usually indicates one of three things; a tragedy has befallen the United States, a videogame has released and the publisher is retweeting every somewhat positive comment, or a sports event happening. Oddly though, #NationalVideoGameDay appears to be something else entirely, something far darker, and almost certainly American. I’m expecting society to collapse in on itself sometime within the next few hours, so enjoy this week’s news while you can!

Review - Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition
