  • Samurai Warriors 5 – Impressions

    My time with Samurai Warriors 5, the latest Musou/Warriors style game from Koei Tecmo’s Omega Force, has been a mostly enjoyable one. At the time of writing I’m 12 hours in, I’ve messed around with a few different modes and characters and completed 4 chapters of Nobunanga’s Path. One...
  • Chivalry 2 – An Axe In The Back & An Arrow In The Eye

    Like a modern – well, medieval – Paris of Troy, I stalk the ramparts and scaffolding surrounding the gatehouse. The gatehouse must be defended from the modern – well, medieval – Achilles of Greece, and his allies, who swarm like wasps towards their objective while my allies and I...

  • The Space Odyssey Begins To Unfold

    Elite Dangerous: Odyssey is incomplete. It’s incomplete, partly, for the same reason Elite Dangerous as a whole is incomplete. There will always be more. Players will always want more.

Legendary and Sunrise had announced that...
  • The Balls Are Gathered & Then Scattered Once Again

    We’re finally at the end of a long journey. I’ve watched 291 episodes of anime and written 12 articles about them – including this one. That’s a lot. Easily the biggest undertaking I’ve had as a writer thus far. I actually dread to think about the word count of...
  • The Mess & Kid Buu

    Season Nine is, in a word, a mess. A meandering mixture of interesting, inexplicable, cool and downright ridiculous twists and turns. It feels aimless at times because it simply doesn’t have the overarching structure that most of the other seasons had to keep it focused. We get to a...
