Wow guys, I've been chomping at the bit to play Blood and Wine for a long time now and my goodness was it ever worth the wait. CDPRed has put a story together set in a large and beautiful world that gives us fans a pretty solid 30 hours of game play; and they call…Read more You Sheep!
Links open in new pages Magic: The Gathering is a great game with a troubling digital history. In one sense, it's really sad, because Hearthstone is immeasurably polished - a thing that Blizzard is absurdly good at. And where Blizzard have gone, others have attempted to follow, because surely, if they can make it work…Read more You Sheep!
Yep, I finally played Firewatch. It's something I was looking forward to for quite some time actually. So why now, right? Firewatch has been out for months, it's received lots of reviews and had its moment in the sun. (more…)Read more You Sheep!
I quite like reading. I quite like adventure gaming. So the best of both of those worlds has got to be text adventures, right? Well. Sort of. If the writing is smart and the characters are clever then text adventures can - absolutely - paint marvellous pictures in your mind - the kind graphics engines…Read more You Sheep!
I love Dark Souls Maybe it's a latent masochistic part of me who likes this sort of punishing and unforgiving game play, maybe it's the fact that nowadays games are so full of assistance and hand holding that they basically play themselves, but there's something about this series that grabs me and won't let go.…Read more You Sheep!
So, just about a year ago now, I wrote a completely scathing review of the tumultuous mess that Magic Duels was at launch. Given the online nature of the game and given that it "perpetually renews" itself whenever new cards come out, I figured I would get back in and see a handful of things…Read more You Sheep!
This is going to be a cynical review. Because this book is cynicism personified. As a computer science major, years ago, I had a pair of classes that were about writing. Very specifically, in order to become a Doctor of Science you had to write a research paper. We had two very different classes with…Read more You Sheep!
Broforce is part of this month's PSN+ free games promotion. It won its place by getting the most votes in the "Vote To Play" contest that was held last month. I had some interest in it but never enough to pay full price for it on PC. I guess it was never dirt cheap and now I…Read more You Sheep!
SuperHot wants me to inform you, and I quote, “It’s the most innovative shooter I’ve played in Years.” But I’m not going to do that because it’s not technically true. It is however one of the most unique puzzle games I’ve ever encountered. It just also happens to masquerade as a Shooter. Because of this game’s unique position, it needs to be examined on a component by component basis. In true Past Due Review Style, we will be inspecting SuperHot’s Animation Quality, Modeling, Lighting, Level Design, Particle Effects, Audio, Game Mechanics, and more.
Please note: some of the links in this review will take you off-site. These have been set up to open in a new window. Where do you go after you've made three games in a universe and have - rather neatly - tied the series up? When confronted with this problem, Al Lowe chose to…Read more You Sheep!
