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 […]

Doctor Who: The Adventure Games Blood of the Cybermen Let’s Play (1/3)

The Doctor and Amy materialize in the Arctic – where members of a survey team are turning from flesh to metal and digging something sinister from under the ice that’s been waiting thousands of years – an army of Cybermen! This is your chance to be the Doctor. Following an SOS signal the Doctor and Amy must tackle some basic point and click puzzling in an ice cave, and some very bad “platforming” in this first part of the second […]

Why I Wasn’t Really a Fan of Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls (Review Retrospective)

A few months ago I reviewed Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls on Rice Digital. I really loved the first Danganronpa. I couldn’t put it down. For every time it was somewhat “problematic” (the way it handles multiple personality disorder is a bit bad) it was also quite subversive. This is a spin-off set between the first and second game that moves away from its normal Visual Novel gameplay and instead adds in survival horror. Oh, but it also adds in […]

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 […]

Doctor Who: The Adventure Games Let’s Play – City of the Daleks

If you live in the UK and watched Doctor Who around series 5 you might have heard of these games. You might have seen the brief advert at the end of some of the episodes and thought “huh that Doctor Who game looks kind of okay” and then completely forgot about it. They were available to download for free to UK residents, and available for purchase outside of the UK through the overly complex Direct2Drive if you didn’t know how […]

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 […]

Arrow Season 4 Episode 3 Review – “Restoration”

This episodes focuses on two stories, splitting the Arrow team up not just by what they’re dealing with, but also in location. Laurel and Thea travel to Nanda Parbat with Sara’s corpse to ask Malcolm Merlyn, the new R’as al Ghul after the finale of Season 3, if they can use the Lazarus Pit to bring Sara back to life (even though Thea thinks this is a bad idea). Thea also wants some answers to her Lazarus Pit blood lust. […]

The Flash Season 2 Episode 3 Review – “Family of Rogues”

The Flash‘s “Rogue” episodes, all featuring Leonard Snart (Captain Cold) and sometimes extending to his sometimes partner Mick Rory (Heatwave) and sister, Lisa Snart (Golden Glider), have been a little bit hit and miss. Though it has to be said that Wentworth Miller always puts in a great, though somewhat hammy, performance as Captain Cold. As the main non-meta human villains in the snow, all using special powered guns (ice, fire, and… gold, somehow?), they provide a nice reprieve from […]
