Splatfests we need to see

Aug 6, 2017

I was basically in love with the original Splatoon (R.I.P. Wii U), and the sequel has earned every last one of its phenomenal sales. 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...

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

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...
