  • A Pleasant Journey Through The Internet

    I’m here to regale you with a little journey I went on through the Internet. Something a little different to my usual articles. Late one night I was scrolling through YouTube, as you do, listening to music. One of my go to songs when I’m feeling melancholic is Caledonia...

  • The Future of Rocket League

    Rocket League has been a huge success for developer Psyonix. Since launching 5 years ago (as of next week), in July 2015, it’s changed a great deal. There have been experiments with arena designs, game modes, items and battle-cars; some of which were successful and others not so much....
  • Welcome To Salvage Saturday!

    I don’t know where to start with Blackbird Interactive’s latest game; Hardspace: Shipbreaker.

  • The Wind, It Speaks To Me

    At long last we’ve been given a decent look at Ghost of Tsushima, the new game from Sucker Punch, coming to PS4 on July 17th 2020. PlayStation’s State of Play is an 18 minute long look at various elements of the game. We get a look at exploration, combat...
  • Puzzle Me This

    I have a confession to make. Writing articles for Out of Lives is not the only writing that I do. Crazy, I know. For years I’ve done some things here and there, privately, none of which have seen the light of day; 99% of which never, ever will. However,...
