Anno 1404 is an interesting little wee game, and so far I’ve had a lot of fun playing it. It’s novel, it’s interesting, it’s incredibly well made, but it’s also very boring. I’m usually a pretty big fan of the real-time strategy genre. Games like Civilization 4 have been the backbone of my gaming life. […]

In the sullenly sparkly 80s, before there were computerised RPGs, there was Dungeons and Dragons. This was how people played computer games before computers were mainstream. A complex set of rules defined a game where combat was resolved using the role of dice. A problem lay in the intricacy of the game, and could be […]

Platforms: PS3, XBOX 360, PC Street fighter—a truly iconic game that has cemented its place in gaming culture as well as pop culture. Personally, having never owned a copy or even played it extensively, the characters and the game’s unique face-paced gameplay still somehow is embedded in my subconscious. It will always have a special […]

Licensed games have received a bit of a bad rap over the years. These tie-ins with commercial properties often fail to impress and most end up lying in the bottom of bargain bins.

The game in one word: simplicity. The graphics, concept, and finishing are simple, yet eloquent and satisfying.

“You have the sex appeal of a shar‑pei. I look that much like your fiancee?” It’s back, baby. Monkey Island. Fuck yeah, I’ve been waiting ages for this. This year Telltale Games announced they would be continuing the legendary, the epic, the humorous, the frightening the motherfucking engrossing, swashbuckling, lavishly adventurous, Monkey Island series. Better […]

So I know it’s been a while since the last game review and I apologise to all our fans out there for the incompetence’s of my fellow gamers Shinigami and Hans moleman, as they were pwned by essays and lab experiments due to a lack of 1337 time management skillz. Fortunately I’m not such a […]

There is a widely accepted rule in gaming circles, that if you download a game, and like it, you should buy it. Let’s just say, I haven’t bought a lot of games recently. To like a game one must enjoy it. To enjoy a game it must be fun. It doesn’t take a degree in […]

With winter in full swing, long gone are the days when socialising outdoors was appropriate. But fortunately for us kids of the 21st century we have such indoor social devices like the Wii to distract us from awkward conversations about the local sports team with the boozy uncle at the 21st you were never invited […]
