Life is Strange 2 Title

Life is Strange 2 Review: My Brother, Some Bother and Me.

Life is Strange 2 had a tough act to follow. The first season was an adventure game based around time travel and decision making with “intensely” loved female teen characters. This is a road trip story starring two Hispanic brothers where the main draw is that the younger of the two must be looked after and taught by the older of the two. For the most part in Episode 1, it’s impressive how well the transition goes.

Netflix Castlevania Review

Castlevania Review

Castlevania is a game series based around the troubles of the Belmont family, as they tackle the monsters sent by Dracula to torment the people. The animated series brought to us from Netflix and written by Warren Ellis has been adapted from that core concept. With only four episodes, Castlevania is more of a proof of concept than anything else. Saying that, It’s compelling, hideous and leaves you wanting more.

Geek Errant Reviews: The Walking Dead: The New Frontier

December 26, 2016 Conor 0

To put it bluntly, the opening episodes of Walking Dead Season 3 do not inspire confidence in the rest of the season. There’s structural problems, story issues, a really weird sense of camera direction and some odd graphical problems. By now, Telltale’s Walking Dead series has a reputation. There’s good parts, like the first season’s (for the time) excellent narrative and ability to tug on heartstrings with the choices system. There’s also terrible parts, like the second season’s reliance on unrelenting solemnity and shock, and the fact that by now, after using the choices system in so many other games, it’s transparent to the player. Season Three does very little to move on from this.

Geek Errant Reviews: Virginia

September 23, 2016 Conor 0

Virginia begins by telling the player that the events of the game have been compiled from notes and case files to create the play they are about to experience. Like a play or film, the game lends itself to a variety of interpretations, a situation which the game wildly encourages. Virginia is one of the most blatant attempts by a developer to blend cinematic techniques and games conventions. To the credit of 505 Games and Variable State, they have definitely hit the mark.
