  • Alfred’s Top 10 of the Decade

    It’s me! Still not dead yet. I know I only seem to pop up for these lists now, but I’m working on some stuff again, but that’s for another time! There’s a few different things to talk about here… Could go on about my Top 10 games, or films,...
  • Ranking the Gears of War Games

    12 months ago, I’d never played a Gears of War game, but now I’m in love with the series. On the surface it’s a franchise of preposterously-proportioned soldiers and constant brutal violence, and yeah, that is Gears of War. But it’s also more than that. It’s an epic narrative,...
  • No Stealth Please, We’re Jedi: The Missing Mechanic of Jedi: Fallen Order

    Electronic Arts may have acquired the coveted Star Wars licensing deal back in 2013 but it’s only now that we’re reaping the rewards. Two disappointing Battlefront games and a scrapped project from Visceral later, Respawn’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order has been released and has proven to be a...

    2019’s Call of Duty Modern Warfare had been promised to be both a return to the boots-on-the-ground, classic style of the older games in the series and a much-needed evolution for the franchise. For the most part, I feel the game has succeeded at that tough task, in both...

  • 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...
  • 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,...
