Downwell Review – Descend into Addiction

By  •  Reviews

Sometimes, all you want to do during your lunch break is get a bit of gaming time in. But what exactly do you play? Let’s say you have half an hour to an hour, tops. You can’t exactly play something that potentially requires longer to play, like a MOBA, or something that likes to space out its save points like an RPG.

Transformers: Devastation Review – Robot Wars

Nostalgia is a powerful emotion, especially when it comes to video games. If I replay a level in Sonic the Hedgehog 2, it can transport me directly back to that moment in time to when I first experienced it; it’s like a window to the past. Read Review

I usually reserve my Retro Reflection pieces for pre-2000s era games, preferring to enlighten you, our audience, on the pixelated games that stood out before the advent of Quake III graphic engines and online multiplayer fiascoes.

5 Important Life Lessons I Learned From Gaming

By  •  Features

For centuries people have claimed to learn things from texts they’ve read, found role models in their favourite novels or plays, and even praised films and TV shows for their didactic quality – so why is it then that discussions of the effects of gaming have been limited to violence and desensitisation for so long?…

Rocket League Review – Race For Goal

By  •  Reviews

I’ve never understood the appeal of football. Like my love of seafood and the swell of anger I feel every time I see Tony Blair’s face, it’s just one of those things I’ve never quite been able to explain. The closest I’ve ever come is that it bores me. Read Review

Who’d be a citizen of Gotham City? Not me, that’s for sure.

If I was unlucky enough to be born kicking and screaming in Elliot Memorial Hospital, I would firstly question the sanity of my parents for choosing to live there for so long, and then suggest that we relocate immediately – once I had the mental capacity to do so, of course. Read Review

Rampage Retro Reflection

By  •  Retro

The wilful damage to public property is a common theme amongst video games these days. Whether from a tank, military helicopter or stealthily planted explosives, bringing down a tall, man-made structure comes with a certain catharsis.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Review – Glorious Geralt

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, the third action role-playing epic from Polish studio CD Projekt RED, makes you feel like you’re playing so many of your past favourites at once. And though some of its emulations feel like thinly scraped butter individually, as a whole this is still one of the best sequels you’ll play this year, thanks to how cohesively both action and role-play fornicate… Read Review

Day 37 – Fully recovered from last week’s failed escape attempt, I feel ready to go again. I still can’t believe they found all my gear in the vent just because I left some gaffer tape in my draw! I have a good feeling about tonight, though. Read Review

Kickstarter games are a lot like UFC fights. For the most part they end up being a tiresome, wriggling mess, but if you watch enough of them you may just witness the spectacle of the decade. Read Review
