Gaming Diary: Firewatch, Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments, Earthbound, Twilight Princess HD, Yakuza

Whoa. Look at that title. Someone’s living on the cusp of video gaming entertainment, and that person is me. Kinda. Well, not at all, but I feel pretty good about experiencing so much new stuff. Well, new for me. And kinda new for everyone. Kinda sorta. Firewatch is legitimately new. I bought it not long after it came out in February, but only just got around to starting it this week. It’s been very much on my radar since seeing […]

The “Oscars” – Games of the Year 2015 Awards

Last year when I wrote my games of the year list I threw in some bonus awards besides the month-on-months and overall.

It’s become one of the more iconic images when it comes to the fairly outrageous mishandling of the PC port of Arkham Knight. There’s a lot of in-depth information about it, most of it an interesting read. The initial comparisons such as Gamespot’s are a good look, and others about the latest PC patches still being poor, and the statements from Warner […]

Why Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee is one of my favourite games and New ‘n’ Tasty is too (not quite a review)

Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee, the first game in the Oddworld series, is one of my favourite games of all time. It’s one of the few PlayStation One games I constantly revisit fairly regularly in my life. I was young when I played it on my uncle’s console, and it was the first time I had encountered something with quite so much depth and scope to the world and it was truly entrancing. For the time it looked phenomenal, and the chunky […]
