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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
Dead or Alive has a bit of a bad rep due to its rather exagerated take on the female characters but I’ve always been a fan, focusing on the multi tier stages and fantastic counter system. Then things went a bit sour for me around DoA4, which introduced the mid-kick counter and cheap as [...]
Well, that didn’t take too long afterall! With at least one runthrough now under my belt, I feel that I can talk about it more at length! But please be aware that there may be spoilers contained in these words but I will try to steer clear of any major revelations.
Tales of Xillia [...]
