  • My Time With Degrees of Separation

    I love a good puzzle game but time-and-time again I find myself losing interest, either because of the difficulty (and I admit, I’m terrible at adapting to in-game logic) or because the game feels like a series of minigames that lack focus or direction. Focus or direction is important...
  • A Farewell to Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

    It’s usually around this time of year that I’d be picking up the controller to play a new Assassin’s Creed game but, alas, that’s not this case this year. The franchise is taking a well-deserved and aptly-timed break before the next instalment – rumoured to be focused on Vikings...
  • Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones (PC)

    This was going to be a review; however, I got very stuck finding myself unable to progress. So instead this will be my first impressions on Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones. Stygain is a Lovecraftian point and click RPG and it sure has some style. You start in...
  • Reading Rush Review

    So, you think you know the alphabet. You think you know which letters come where. You think that if presented with a series of letters you’d be able to select them in chronological order. You think that you can do that easily while being attacked by a tiny 8-bit...
  • Neo Cab Review

    The world is full of cyberpunk stories. The genre has had a resurgence in recent years. Altered Carbon, Mutant Year Zero and the development of Cyberpunk 2077 have kept it firmly in our minds. This doesn’t look to stop either with plenty of new smaller stories occupying a space...
  • Free 2 Destiny

    Since Destiny 2 went (mostly) free to play last week, I’ve played quite a bit of it. It’s a bold plan from Bungie since their split from publisher Activision to make basically their entire game free to play with only the latest expansion’s content still behind the paywall. Time...
  • Why Gears 5 is My Favourite of the Series

    The following article contains spoilers for Gears 5. Read on at your peril! While I now consider myself a fan of the Gears of War franchise, I only began playing the games this past year. Since January I have been playing through the series in their order of release,...
  • Untitled Goose Game

    Untitled Goose Game – Review (Maybe… We’ll see how far I get in writing this before I hit a depressive mood and stop)   Geese are bastards. You know it, I know it, and this beautiful game knows it.   I wasn’t sure what to expect from Untitled Goose...
  • The Surge 2 1920 x 1080

    The Surge 2: First Two Hours (and a bit…)

    I’ve never played Dark Souls or Bloodborne but I have played The Surge, and although I’m not fond of the Soulslike genre The Surge’s sci-fi setting had me hooked from the get-go. It should come as no surprise then, that I was excited to play The Surge 2. From...
