Troll and I

For gamers, these are extraordinary times. In the last four years alone, about three-quarters of Steam’s catalogue has been published. Steam, the western hemisphere’s largest digital game store, is fourteen years old. This, to me, is mind-boggling. Through the increasingly prevalent roles in which early […]

Mass Effect: Andromeda

As a fan of the Mass Effect series, it’s probably easy to think of my opinion as somewhat coloured by favouritism and forgiveness when it comes to Bioware’s epic sci-fi series. However, a simple Google search will chronicle the wave of criticism raised against the […]

Styx: Shards of Darkness

I have loved many stealth games in my life. Splinter Cell, Tenchu, Metal Gear and Hitman, to name a few. As time has worn on, a difficult-to-shake feeling has clung to my mindset when stalking armed guards and hiding corpses. Where the base appeal of […]

Yooka-Laylee

Banjo-Kazooie is a nearly 20-year-old game that is still such a joy to play. Of course, a spiritual successor built by the same key creatives wouldn’t have any trouble being crowdfunded. Yooka-Laylee’s gladdening origins as a rebelliously independent rebirth of a long-lost franchise doesn’t just […]

I’m sorry to say, but this game is a mistake, and my mind is a mess thinking of where to start with it. Ghost Recon should not have aped Assasin’s Creed, but Rainbow Six: Siege, instead. Ghost Recon Wildlands (GRW) is a painful game to […]

Torment: Tides of Numenera

Halo Wars 2

Halo Wars 2 is an RTS game designed for people who don’t play RTS games; it’s mediocre, simplistic and with clunky controls due to being designed for an Xbox controller. I never played Halo Wars 1 since it originally didn’t come to PC, but from […]

For Honor

Vandenberghe, you brilliant bastard. I knew I could count on you to deliver a banger game, you cane-wielding barbarian, you. You set me on the path of battle, and now, I’m hungr- huh, that’s weird. I got kicked. Ah, well, I’ll just join another then! […]

Sniper Elite 4

There’s a reason why seeing Richard Spencer getting decked in GIFs all over the internet is so satisfying. We have been taught through countless films, comic books and video games that Nazis are evil, and deserve to be met with extreme prejudice. The Sniper Elite […]

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard

When Resident Evil 7: Biohazard (RE7) was first announced at E3 2016, a lot of core fans voiced concerns over the game’s bold new direction. The mainline series was already in dire straits after the critical failure of Resident Evil 6, and it didn’t help […]
