Dishonored: The Brigmore Witches DLC Review
You probably noticed that we ran a story last weekend about how Square Enix’s Thief has turned jumping into a context-sensitive action, with the lead level designer explaining this decision by saying: “Jumping, bouncing up and down, kind of broke the immersion … We didn’t want you to be the master thief and you just tend to fall off stuff all the time.”
I mention this now because Dishonored: The Brigmore Witches does let you jump, and – even though I regularly fall off stuff because, although I’m supposed to be the legendary master assassin Daud, I’m actually an idiot puppeteering his body – I find this quite immersive.
Rise of the Triad review
Do you miss 90s shooters like Doom, when level design was paramount to the extent that certain level designers actually became pretty well known?
Cloudberry Kingdom review
If you want to be a games journalist, I’d caution you about one thing.
Teleglitch: Die More Edition Review
True to its subheading, this updated version of Teleglitch will make you die.
Metro: Last Light – Faction Pack DLC review
If nothing else, it’s hard to argue the price. Even if the Faction Pack was a set of entirely generic missions that did nothing new or even particularly interesting, there’d still be the nagging argument in the back of my head that it’s still giving you more Metro: Last Light – which is undeniably a good thing – for only £4.
The Raven: Legacy of a Master Thief – Chapter 1: The Eye of the Sphinx Review
Hercule Poirot gave the main speech at my university graduation. Not the more recognisable Poirot figure of David Suchet, but the late Peter Ustinov.
Toki Tori 2+ Review
I’ve just coaxed my final golden frog into a suction tube and saved a village community of flightless birds.
Borderlands 2: Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep Review
It’s been a long and bumpy road for Borderlands 2 DLC.
Magrunner: Dark Pulse Review
Games development pretty much depends on derivation and iteration to survive.
Stinky Board Review
We were born with eight fingers and two thumbs, but imagine if we had an extra hand.
Anomaly 2 Review
It’s an interesting week for fans of slightly unusual tower defence games because we’ve got two slightly unusual tower defence sequels.
Strike Suit Infinity Review
I quite enjoyed Strike Suit Zero. It had a few problems, but does the job in a genre that is crying out for more games.
Zeno Clash II Review
When I played the first Zeno Clash, the world of Zenozoik felt like something out of a long lost 1980s fantasy film; unique, exciting and strange.
