Geek Errant Recommends: Mount and Blade Warband

February 9, 2020 Conor 0

It’s so easy to get lost in Mount and Blade: Warband. A game that offers you a world of politicking and trade and system driven combat. One of those games where systems drive everything that’s interesting about the game.

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. 

Islanders Review

Islanders Review : Itty Bitty City Building

April 6, 2019 Conor 1

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.

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.

Quarantine Circular Title

Quarantine Circular Review: Talk Your Problems Out

May 22, 2018 Conor 0

On a boat, off the coast of Dubrovnik, there is an alien. First contact for humanity is beginning. It’s up to the player to decide what happens next. The newest game from Bithell Games is a more complex and interesting Text Adventure than you initially might think.

Before the Storm Recommends

Geek Errant Recommends: Life is Strange Before the Storm

February 3, 2018 Conor 0

Life is Strange: Before the Storm is a fascinating adventure game that navigates themes of Grief, Teenage Friendship and finding your place in a changing world, all with the signature charm and attitude that’s come to be known of Life is Strange.
