The Wolf Among Us Episode 3: A Crooked Mile Review

Ooh, ooh! Can I once again spend the first few paragraphs of this review complaining that episodic games are a bitch to review, because after the first episode you’ve basically covered everything mechanically so all you’re left with is story, and you can’t talk about that without spoiling it?

Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls Review

Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls wouldn’t have been quite so highly anticipated if it hadn’t been for the fact that the original Diablo 3 was a broken game with a terrible loot system and an unwelcome auction house.

Shannon Tweed’s Attack of the Groupies Review / Playthrough

Well, there’s one bit of genius for you. If you’re going to release a game as patently ridiculous as Shannon Tweed’s Attack of the Groupies, you might as well release it on April 1st.

Age of Wonders 3 Review

For a long time I’ve been fondly playing Age of Wonders II Shadow Magic, so during my games with Age of Wonders 3 I couldn’t help comparing it to it’s previous title through a microscope and my rose-tinted glasses.

For such a tiny, simple game, there’s an awful lot to say about Luftrausers.

Thief Review

As a long-time fan of the Thief series, I’ve spent the last couple of years watching Eidos Montreal handling the license with all the apparent grace and judgment of a drunken juggler.

Banished Review

When I spoke to Luke Hodorowicz of Shining Rock Software last year I was super excited for Banished, not least because Luke was obviously a developer really passionate about his game and the city building genre.

The Wolf Among Us Episode 2 Review

How bloody long? Nearly four months. Four months between episodes. That’s a hell of a long time, Telltale.

Loadout Review

Back in the 90s, shooters were all the rage. They were fast and furious, with none of the slower, sneaky, stealthy, cover-based gameplay of today’s modern shooters.

KickBeat Steam Edition Review

It’s fair to say I have a history with rhythm-action games.

Broken Age: Act One Review

There is one thing that Double Fine do better than pretty much anyone else in the games industry, and that’s write children and adolescents.

The Banner Saga Review

As either player or reviewer, losing five hours of progress in a game is a pretty dispiriting state of affairs.

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag – Freedom Cry DLC Review

Freedom Cry is the first (and perhaps only, if the Season Pass description is anything to go by) bit of single player DLC for the well-received Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.

Total War: Rome 2 Caesar in Gaul DLC Review

Total War: Rome 2 was a major disappointment when it was released in what appeared to be a semi-completed state back in September 2013.

World of Warplanes Review

Everyone knows about World of Tanks, it helped thrust Wargaming into the mainstream with its attention to detail and tactical online tank battles.

A mouse is a mouse, right? Well, it is if you’re messing about in spreadsheets or doing some of that surfing the Intertubes stuff.
