Developer: David OReilly Publisher: Double Fine Productions Platform: PS4 (reviewed), PC   This being the Art issue, I thought it would be a good idea to have a gander at an “artsy” game, one where the rules go out the window and any sort of weird shit is possible. Oh boy, did I find one! […]

As much as I like to say that games are for everyone, the unfortunate truth is that the medium is nowhere near as accessible as it should be. It isn’t about subject matter or anything to do with a game’s artistic intentions; rather, it is a matter that most people wouldn’t even give a single […]

Developer: PlatinumGames Publisher: Square Enix Platforms: PS4 (reviewed), PC   Taro Yoko is a name you may not recognise, but should know. He’s basically Hideo Kojima if he was even crazier. Throughout his career, Yoko’s games have confounded expectations, blended genres and forced players to really think about why they enjoy video games. Nier: Automata […]

I fucking despise the Call of Duty (CoD) series. Or, rather, I despise what it has become: a symbol of everything wrong with the triple-A gaming industry.

Seriously, no one is going to go out of their way to […]

Sometimes the most fascinating news stories in gaming don’t come from the games themselves, but the people who make a living playing them. One such story, one of the most bizarre sagas in the history of games journalism, has come to a satisfying conclusion and I’d like to offer a (perhaps belated) hot take on […]

Welcome newbs! This year is set to be a pretty exciting time to be a gamer, and I am once again at the helm to sort the surprisingly awesome from the painfully average. I’ve been writing about games for a few years now, with one of my key messages throughout that time being “games are […]

Game awards are usually turgid affairs, filled with meaningless waffle about how awesome games are and a bunch of men in suits pleasuring themselves over how they’re totally artists and not at all soulless, out-of-touch, corporate stooges who take pride in nickel-and-diming. To that I defiantly say nay! If I’m going to give out some […]

After something of an inconspicuous start it seems that this console generation is starting to pick up some steam, courtesy of the two biggest names in the business. The PS4, dominant for much of this first part, has had some serious missteps, while Xbox under Phil Spencer seems more determined than ever to win back […]
