Spider-Man Review: A Spectacular Superhero Story

Frostpunk is a narratively driven city simulator from 11 Bit Studios, previously best known for This War of Mine.

PUBG Review: It shouldn’t be this good.

December 21, 2017 Conor 0

PUBG as a game shouldn’t work. It’s a multiplayer only game that requires around 100 players for a match. It looks bland as white rice. There’s fundamentally no narrative, no story. To start a game is to commit to a single 30 minute time sink where 99 players are going to lose. This game should have empty servers, critical panning and a bunch of postmortems to dissect exactly how bad of an idea it is.   Yet it’s easily one of the most engrossing games I’ve played in a long time. Somehow PUBG is a highly compelling game that’s sucked up most of my year.
