Gaming Diary: Hitman Spectacular – Hitman 2016, Hitman: Blood Money, Hitman: Contracts, Hitman 2: Silent Assassin, and a Little Bit of Hitman Absolution

My, my, my, I’ve not updated this blog in a little while, but as you can tell, I’ve been a bit of a busy boy. Or should that be a busy MAN. A busy HITman, that is. My journey with the Hitman series started off with the PlayStation 2 version of Hitman: Blood Money. I made it to the fourth level, Flatline, and ended up stopping due to clunky controls and feeling like I didn’t know what was going on. […]

Gaming Diary: Hitman Beta, Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator, Gears of War 2

This week was the kind of week that doesn’t end. So, I didn’t really have much time to play a whole load of stuff. But the stuff I did play was kinda intense, so that was good. I played the Hitman Beta. That’s the Beta for the new Hitman, which is just called Hitman. I’ve always kind of liked the Hitman games, but I’ve never been that good at them. I find the old ones a little tough to play […]

Gaming Diary: Naruto, The Witness, Hand of Fate, Gears of War, Persona 2

This a new thing I’m doing. If I barely do anything one week, or it’s really uninteresting, I might not write about it. I’ll skip over boring stuff or whatever. Though as I work in the gaming industry you’d hope I’d have some stuff to say now and then. Which is the point of this blog I suppose! I spent a lot of this week playing Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 4. I lapsed on the Manga partway through the […]

Rise of the Tomb Raider Review – More of the Same

I loved the first Tomb Raider. Well, not the first first one, that’s actually aged very poorly, but the reboot. It reviewed well, but picked up quite a lot of criticism for being an “Uncharted” clone, which I always found a bit unfair as Uncharted was very much inspired by Tomb Raider in the first place. It’s actually great there are more third person action games like that around. It adds to the creative conversation, and should force both of […]

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. Now, there are even more bonus awards, because if you head on over to Rice Digital me and my coworker Peter gave our picks on a variety of categories, from Most Frustrating, to Most Awe-Inspiring Moment. It’s a good read. Without going on too much, here are my normal Games of the Year awards. Just Fuck Off Already […]

Why One Piece Pirate Warriors 3 wasn’t quite the game I wanted it to be (Review Retrospective)

One Piece Pirate Warriors 3 is one of the games I’ve followed through pre-release and release the most since working in video games full-time. I followed it along at preview events, and it impressed me quite a bit. To pick up and play it’s a great Warriors game, and features some truly refined and inspired tweaks to the traditional gameplay. Though when playing the full package and reviewing it, it kind of ended up irking me in some ways despite […]

I’ve been playing a bit of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and I want to lose myself in its world

I’d tried to play the first two Witcher games before and had struggled with them. They start out a bit slow, and just seem really complicated. I popped this in on a whim, having borrowed it from a friend after hearing such good things, and was blown away. It’s almost like a cross between Skyrim and Fable II, but with only the good bits kept in. The world, characters, and story appeal to me – and I wouldn’t even describe […]

Part 1: Cost – My Thoughts on Playing Games on Console vs Playing Games on PC

This article’s featured image is from Gamespot’s pretty great Batman: Arkham Knight PlayStation 4 & PC comparison article. 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 […]

Infamous: Second Son Review – Freedom in All but Its Morality System

Infamous: Second Son is the sort of game where a cover of Nirvana’s “Heart-Shaped Box” (by Dead Sara) plays over the credits. It opens with new series lead Delsin Rowe (Troy Baker) tagging up a billboard. The player has to hold the DualShock 4 on its side, using the trigger as if it were a spray can nozzle. It wants to be edgy and cool. And at times it is, presenting a fluid, real feeling open-world Seattle and allowing you […]
