Control Title

Control Review: Creepy Corporate Chaos

August 29, 2019 Conor 0

Control might not represent the most average day for Jesse Faden. Finding the secretive government organisation that took your brother all those years ago could be cause for celebration. Finding a dead man, picking up his weird gun and finding that you’re now the paranormally appointed Director of that same organisation could be a point of concern. And that’s before you find out about all of those horrifying mind warping horrors they’ve been studying for decades now.  So a rough day then. 

EA Predictions for 2019

E3 Predictions for 2019

June 7, 2019 Conor 1

With the annual corporate extravaganza that is E3 beginning this weekend, time to work out what’s coming up. The conference is likely to be comparatively weak this year, as we still wait for news of the new console generation to break properly. There are a few fun reveals planned, but it’s always worth remembering that all of this is just fun marketing. Everything we see should be treated with healthy scepticism and an understanding that what we see is not what we will necessarily get.

Geek Errant Reviews: A Plague Tale Innocence

May 17, 2019 Conor 0

You’re never more than ten feet away from a rat. This is a well known aphorism about city life. God I wish the rats in A Plague Tale Innocence were ten feet away. Instead they’re clustering around, seemingly mere inches from my character. I can hear their chittering and squeaking as they wait for my meagre torch to go out. I could move out of the shadows to the safety of a brazier, but then I’d be seen by the guard. Instead I time my movement wrong, step too close to the and as the music swells, I am devoured by clambering rats in a verminous maelstrom of teeth and claws. A Plague Tale Innocence is wonderfully unpleasant and exhilaratingly tense.

Islanders Review

Islanders Review : Itty Bitty City Building

April 6, 2019 Conor 0

The best games in the city building genre are time machines. A player should be able to run the game, begin building their metropolis and suddenly realise that they’ve lost an evening and gained an urban sprawl.  Islanders manages to do this in a way most city builders don’t. It turns the whole process of building your city into a puzzle in and of itself.

Life is Strange 2 Title

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

September 29, 2018 Conor 0

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.

E3 Sony Conference 2018 Title

E3 Sony Conference 2018: Quality of Games, Not Quantity of Games

June 12, 2018 Conor 0

The E3 Sony Conference 2018 will be the last of the full conferences, and we’re well aware of what’s to come. Because the PlayStation expo offers Sony a chance at some competition free media space later in the year, here we’re getting four deep dives into highly anticipated games. Spider-Man, Ghosts of Tsushima, The Last of Us 2 and Death Stranding will be the games on show here primarily. But will we see anything else? Let’s hope so.

Microsoft E3 Predictions Title

E3 2018 Prediction Posts: Microsoft

June 7, 2018 Conor 0

Microsoft are definitely in the underdog position for this generation. They’ve had multiple big titles being cancelled or delayed or just not well received enough. Weirdly, in spite of how they started this generation, their backwards compatibility and console features have turned into their saving grace. But what do we expect them to be focussing on for the E3 2018 Conference? What are our Microsoft E3 Predictions?

Vampyr Title

Vampyr Review: A Valiant Attempt at Vampiric Verisimilitude

June 5, 2018 Conor 0

An atmospheric blend of brawling combat action game and conversation based adventure game, Vampyr is the latest title from Dontnod Entertainment and Focus Home Interactive. Not a perfect game, but one worth your time even if you’re not fascinated by the gothic.
