You shine a little love on my life

Aug 17, 2017

We really liked The Town of Light, and now we have reason to like it and the developers, LKA, even more; they’re supporting Mental Health! As a subject that’s near and dear to our hearts (and our heads) here at Critical Gamer, it’s always good to see games tackling issues like these in both the physical and digital realms. This was announced...

The regular Splatfests – where players can pick one of two sides, then battle it out online in a meta game to determine a winner – are now established as a series tradition. Past choices have seen players compete in ice cream...

E3 2017: Final thoughts

E3 2017: Final thoughts

Aug 3, 2017

E3 is well behind us now, but distance gives us a new perspective. While the last few years have seen some pretty huge shock announcements, I’ve got to say this year was pretty tame in comparison. All the shows were pretty good, but there wasn’t the wow factor of, say, a Shenmue 3 or Final Fantasy VII Remake announcement from previous years. The...
