I still love Titanfall, and refuse to apologise

Jun 22, 2015

If you need to ask why I love Titanfall, I can only presume that you’re unaware of the giant robots and jetpacks. Reasonable at it seems to me to present that first sentence as a convincing argument of Titanfall’s worth, I suppose tradition dictates that I should elaborate a bit. I’m sure many of you have a good understanding of what...

Warhammer 40,000 Regicide: Hands-on

Warhammer 40,000 Regicide: Hands-on

May 26, 2015

Warhammer 40,000: Regicide is Chess but it is also a few other things – incomplete being the most important as it’s out in Early Access on Steam. Second most important is that it’s also got Chess-with-tactics gameplay as an alternate mode which will feature a Campaign – eventually. I’m a huge fan of Warhammer in both its fantasy and sci-fi...

My life as a gamer dad

May 16, 2015

Having become a father just shy of four years ago, the time I get to play games has been somewhat reduced today, compared to my responsibility-free younger years.

Whilst videogames have done a superb job of completely killing the social aspect of these games, they’ve done lots when it comes to mapping out your quest as...

Toren: Hands-On

Toren: Hands-On

Apr 21, 2015

Game code provided by the publisher Toren is an interesting game. It also looks to be both linear and story focussed, so I won’t give a full retelling of what I experienced and presume to be the opening to the game. Especially as what I played, I thought, could equate to a short game in its own right. Also, I’ve heard it has been compared to ICO;...

Kyn: Hands-On

Kyn: Hands-On

Apr 20, 2015

Game code provided by the publisher I quite enjoy Kyn, you could say it’s Kyn-d of good (gosh, I sure hope the pronunciation makes that pun work). It’s been compared to Baldur’s Gate (and other Infinity Engine games) which it seems to takes some inspiration from. From what I played, it seems to be true in that combat and movement is much like those; but...
