Cheap Golf

Hello, my name is Susan. I want to take you on a journey into what it means to be alive. But talk is cheap, and so is golf. The two, consciousness and golf, are intimately intertwined in a dance of supreme, beatific elegance. Cats are funny. That’s why there are so many YouTube videos about…

Call of Cthulhu

Ahh, Lovecraft. Long considered the Granddaddy of horror, for good reason, his works have seen many an adaptation over the years. Some good, some less so. But all too rarely have we seen a truly great entry, in any medium other than his original literature. Silent Hill probably stands as the best representation of his…

Space Hulk: Tactics

Space Hulk: Tactics is the latest digital edition of the venerable Space Hulk board game. This time we’ve got campaign outings for both the Space Marines and Genestealers, as well as online play, map editor, and squad customisation. The question remains though – does it roll a natural 6 or get teleported back to the…

Agony

Ahh yes, Kickstarter, equal parts one of the best and worst things to happen to the gaming world. On the one hand, it has enabled the production of so many games that would otherwise have never existed. On the other…it’s enabled the production of so many games that should otherwise have never existed. By now,…

The Fall Part 2: Unbound

Kickstarter still has a questionable reputation among the gaming populace at large, and it’s not hard to see why. There have been some extremely high profile disappointments and outright scams, which have severely dampened perceptions even when the (admittedly rare) big success stories come along. But something that gets far less attention is the small,…

Shenmue 1 and 2

Shenmue boasts itself as “the saga that defined modern gaming”. Which is a bold claim indeed, and one that is far more apt than many may realise. Though it has long remained something of a niche title, due to being formerly exclusive to the ill-fated SEGA Dreamcast, with the second later seeing an original Xbox…

F1 2018

Just like every year, we get a new F1 game. And just like I mentioned last year, Codemasters only has 12 months to develop these games. So it’s best to keep expectations on the lower side. But unlike last year, which saw a drastic change in the aero regulations that brought us wider tires and…

The Banner Saga 3

You’ve made it to Arberrang, you’ve gathered clansmen and warriors, and you’re probably going to be dead in a few weeks. Don’t worry though, everyone is dying with you! Well, unless you save everyone that is. But to do that you need to use turn-based combat and make heart-shattering decisions that kill characters and murder…

Yakuza 0

The Yakuza series has been a mainstay of the Sony platform since the days of the PlayStation 2. Growing, in large part, out of Suzuki Yu’s Shenmue, it features similar themes and almost identical gameplay. It’s always had something of a niche appeal, but has long been requested for PC porting. Which, finally, we now…

Cultist Simulator

Cultist Simulator, a game developed by Weather Factory and published by Humble Bundle. While this game appears to have a very basic theme, it’s actually quite complex. In fact, it’s so complex that it makes me wonder how exactly they even managed to make it work. Weather Factory was co-founded by Alexis Kennedy and Lottie…

Red Faction Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered

The Red Faction series has a lengthy, and surprisingly storied, history. Much like the characters in the games themselves. Feared lost when THQ died the firey death of mismanagement, shockingly freed from Games for Windows Live and now remastered and made free to existing owners. And that’s just Red Faction Guerrilla! The amount of attention…

Wizard Of Legend

Wizard of Legend is an action adventure rogue-like/lite from the hands a duo by the moniker of Contingent99. The game takes place in some other universe as most of this variety do, and this universe has magic. This theme is common but that doesn’t mean it’s old or boring, so I gave them the benefit…

Puyo Puyo Tetris

Puyo Puyo Tetris is the long-awaited mash-up of classic puzzle games Puyo Puyo and Tetris. Never could’ve guessed that from the title. For those not aware; Puyo Puyo is a colour-matching game where players attempt to build chains of four coloured blobs to make them disappear and drop junk blobs on the opponent’s side. Tetris…

MEANDERS

MEANDERS is a 3D platforming puzzle game produced and published by ATOMIC BREATH. The game features 40 puzzles of complex but supposedly funny natures. The game totes a very minimalistic graphic style and the puzzles are largely exploration coupled with small amounts of logic and observation involved. Going into the game, you might be wondering…
