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 [...]
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 [...]
Well, it finally happened. Just when pretty much everyone (including myself) had given up on the game, P4A FINALLY got a UK release!! Also, Microsoft announced their next generation Xbox, called the Xbox One. I can sum that up in one sentence. If I was a white, jock, suburban american male, who loves his [...]
And now we bid farewell to another year and, quite frankly, one I’m quite happy to see the back of. It started well enough but the later half is definitely one I’ll be happy to forget. But enough about that, time to look back at the non-figure stuff which have caught my attention over the [...]
Given that this game has pretty much taken over all my spare time since I got it, a mini review had to be on the cards.
Well, what is there to say? This is a remake of a classic PC game from the early 90s, one which I played briefly on the PS1 and [...]
It was bound to happen. Ever since it was announced, this game was going to be part of my collection and after my impressions of the alpha demo, my excitement got pretty big! Then came the not so good stuff; changes to the powerblow into a comeback mechanic, 4 point counter system, etc. But after [...]
It’s that time of year again, when I meet up with other members of the Destructoid group and play video games at the Eurogamer Expo!! admittedly, the floor this year was a little bare compared to previous years in terms of games I wanted to play, but there was still enough to keep me [...]
I was thinking about doing a lengthy preview post of Phantasy star online 2 this week, since I haven’t been playing anything but that game for the past couple of weeks (save for dragon force on a sega saturn emulator I just discovered) but then, a bit of news was released which, while completely expected, [...]
