Jul 26, 2017

Sometimes, you might feel that pretty much everything in life has conspired to make simply getting out of bed pointless. You are not alone. Perhaps, sometimes, you find yourself believing that nobody in this world cares whether you live or die. This is not true. Or maybe things cut at you so deeply, on so regular a basis, that it seems things can not and will...

Destiny 2: beta impressions

Jul 20, 2017

Many of you will be playing the beta already; while those itching to play, yet don’t have an early access code, can jump in tomorrow. If you want (another) taste of what to expect, or if you’re just interested to see somebody else’s take on it, stay a while. I’ll throw some words at you. Despite its runaway success, some people – including me –...

Beta watch this Destiny 2 video to get ready

Jul 17, 2017

Are you excited about this new Destiny game? If so, you’re not alone. Lots of people talking about it on the interwebs. At least nine. The first game was phenomenally popular, and its sequel is on track to equal if not obliterate that success. If you’ve pre-ordered, then you’ll be able to start playing the beta tomorrow evening (on PS4) or the...

Escape from Hyrule

Escape from Hyrule

Jul 6, 2017

Have you ever tried to escape from a room? Not in an “I accidentally locked myself in a room and must now escape it” sort of way but in a SAW kind of way but with far less fatal conclusions if you fail… or if you win. Okay, maybe not like SAW at all, but more like a room in a Zelda game where a fun puzzle must be completed before you can go on. Or...

Guys, guys, they’re releasing a game with a physical manual

Guys, guys, they’re releasing a game with a physical manual

Jul 3, 2017

Videogame packaging has evolved significantly over the years. It used to be all about the cardboard; the elders amongst you will remember that each new PC game used to come in a box the size of a moderately large caravan. Physical games (when you can find ’em) now come in pretty small packages. Small packages, sadly, with no physical game manual. Until...

Nights of Azure azuredly awarded a sequel

Nights of Azure 2: Bride...
