Mini Review: Deception IV: Blood Ties

It may surprise you that I’ve been a long time fan of the deception series. Heck, I first played it before it was even released in europe back in 1998. Sadly, I did miss the very first deception game from 1996 but I played Kagero: deception 2 while I was in Japan and, after fumbling [...]

Mini Review: Titanfall

This is probably the first BIG release of the year. Sure, there have been some large names like Lightning returns but in terms of sheer expectation and marketing behind it, nothing comes close and very few will come close this year! Stand by for Titanfall!

I think everyone knows the score when it comes [...]

Mini Preview: Ace Combat Infinity beta

Free-to-play is a rather dirty phrase for video games right now. Mention it and you either think of really crappy games which hold back lots of content and items behind a paywall or games which basically force you to pony up to proceed. Some can work (Team Fortress 2, some MMORPGs) but most don’t and [...]

Mini Review: Wii U

OK, I’ve put this off long enough. Over christmas, I received a Wii U as a gift and have been putting it through its paces somewhat so I figure now is a decent time to give my thoughts on it.

The Wii U has been having a hard time of late as its sales [...]

Another one bites the dust

Man, and I thought 2012 ended badly… 2013 seemed to just want to carry on the way it started and I am very glad to see the back of this year!!

Still, some things didn’t change, like the flux of anime shows which have come and gone. Some are remembered while others are forgotten. But [...]

Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate

After the somewhat disappointing Arkham Origins on home consoles, I got a chance to play through the portable game which was released side by side with the big brother release. Arkham Origins Blackgate was released on the 3DS and Vita and it was the Vita version which I was able to pick up. I [...]

Mini Review: Lego Marvel Super Heroes

Another break from posting about Celia (who is nearing completion. She should be done in a week or 2) so I thought I’d post something about a rather pleasant surprise game which I recently finished!

I have to admit that I have not been the biggest fan of the lego series of games. I [...]

Mini Review: Arkham Origins

I’ll admit that I’m being a bit lazy with this post but I felt that it would be better to break up my various WIP posts of Celia, who is still coming along. In fact, Most of her body is completed and only detailing, head, cape and lance are needed. I may redo some [...]

Mini Review: Dragon’s Crown

This mini review has been coming for a while. I actually bought the US version of the game on the US PSN store a few weeks ago, before it got released in europe, but then I wanted to get far enough into the game to get a proper taste for it. Not that it [...]

Eurogamer Expo 2013

At this stage, it feels like the Eurogamer Expo (or EGX, as the organisers are trying to brand it as) is sharply feeling the law of diminishing return. Either that or I’m just getting too old for this shit.

Still, it did feel like the show was more about the hardware than the games this [...]
