Hades Title

Hades Review: Pure Peloponnesian Perfection

November 18, 2020 Conor 0

Hades is exceptional. Supergiant Games’ latest work excels in every area possible. An absurdly polished mix of morish combat, note perfect music, humanistic writing and textbook worthy narrative design.

Star Wars Squadrons Asteroids

Star Wars Squadrons Review: Delightfully Detailed Dogfighting

October 4, 2020 Conor 0

Star Wars Squadrons is not a sequel to the classic Rogue Squadron games. Or even the more direct inspirations and more classic X-Wing or TIE Fighter. Instead, it’s a much more simple package. A chaotic, multiplayer focussed 5v5 dogfighting game that feels amazing, when it works.

Among Us Review

Among Us Review: Suspecting Suspicious Spacemen

September 20, 2020 Conor 0

I have a lot of time for deceptively simple murder mystery games. The newly popular Among Us is an absolute highlight of the genre. Released in 2018, Among Us comes from the studio Innersloth. Following launch, it ticked along, gathering fans, mobile versions and additional maps and costumes for your tiny astronauts. This picked up with fans in both Brazil and South Korea becoming enamoured with the game, before English speaking game streamers popularised it even further. From there it’s skyrocketed.  So what’s making people so interested?

Final Chimera Squad Title

XCOM Chimera Squad – More than the sum of its parts

April 26, 2020 Conor 0

An experimental spin off of the XCOM series, Chimera Squad definitely lives up to its name. Small scale tactical battles in a counter terrorist themed version of the core XCOM 2 game. But with a few key changes to keep things interesting. 

Yes, Your Grace Title

Yes, Your Grace Review: Modest Monarch Management

March 9, 2020 Conor 0

Developed by studio Brave at Night, and published by No More Robots. Yes, Your Grace is a linear Narrative strategy game. Emphasis more on the narrative than the strategy in this instance. Be the king, make decisions, keep your throne under you and your people away from the pitchforks.

Disco Elysium Title

Disco Elysium Review: Deliriously Decadent Decisions

December 15, 2019 Conor 1

I thought I didn’t really like isometric RPGs. It turns out what I really didn’t like was how most isometric RPGs played. An endless slog of grids and turn based combat getting in the way of enjoying the roleplaying. Disco Elysium is an Isometric RPG. I love Disco Elysium.
