IMO: Bioshock Infinite- Burial at Sea Episode 1


The original Bioshock is one of my favorite games of the last generation. It excelled in both atmosphere and storytelling, really raising the bar for both. It dealt with a thought provoking subject matter and cleverly utilised video game tropes to make a commentary on the  medium itself. It was a masterpiece. Bioshock Infinite just didn’t click with me like ... Read More »

IMO: The Wolf Among Us- Episode 3


I really enjoyed the third episode of the Wolf Among Us. The engrossing atmosphere was as strong as ever, the writing sharp and the narrative continued to go to decent places. I admit that the arc of the episode was somewhat predictable, but this predictable nature allowed for a number of well handled scenarios. A common complaint, and one found ... Read More »

IMO: R.B.I Baseball 2014


When I was little I owned the good olde NES. RBI Baseball was one of the first games I bought with my own hard earned money. It was great to play it. Like most games then, it wasn’t crazy hard and my friends all talked baseball back then. Me not knowing anything at all was able to keep up because ... Read More »

Steam Quality Control is Terrible


Seeing as Steam is the premier service for many PC gamers, it should hold up to some serious scrutiny. Few services come even a fraction close to the amount of traffic and use that Steam has. Many gamers, and sometimes myself included, almost refuse to purchase a game unless it will be added to their Steam account. Read More »

How is the endgame in Dark Souls 2?


With a game the size of Dark Souls 2, combined with the constraints of getting up a prompt review, it’s basically impossible to cover everything first time. In my original play through (the one for the review) I fitted a lot in: I found all but one of the covenants and lit every single bonfire (to give two examples). However, ... Read More »

A Look Back- Persona 4


With Persona 4 now out on PlayStation network as a PS2 classic, what better time is there to look back on this fabulous game? Persona 4 came out on the PS2 in 2008, the same year that the likes of Grand Theft Auto 4 and Metal Gear Solid 4 were gracing the (then) current gen platforms… Truly, it was a ... Read More »

The Wayside- Enslaved: Odyssey to the West


Before stepping into the brave new world of the current generation, it’s often nice to take a look back. A lot has happened since the 360 first appeared in late 2005 – namely a whole tonne of video games. With that many releases it’s easy for many to be looked over or forgotten – in other words, to have fallen ... Read More »
