Torment: Tides of Numenera

I’ve played many a strange and lurid game before but nothing quite on the level of Torment: Tides of Numenera. It’s a melting pot of science-fiction, fantasy, theist philosophy, RPG player agency, and a dash of “Sweet Jesus, what the hell is that thing?” The […]

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! […]

Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection

Ah, Assassin’s Creed. Since Ubisoft brought this world to us in 2007, I can’t even count how many hours I’ve spent in the various Animus… or is it Animuses? Animi? What’s the plural on that? Eh, doesn’t matter. One thing’s for sure, I’ve clocked up […]

Batman: The Telltale Series

The caped crusader becomes a lot less intimidating if you pronounce his name wrong. He is the night, he is the darkness, he is… The Batmun. Not to be confused with the Megamun, Aquamun or Butman, Batmun’s legacy is so long that it would take […]

Final Fantasy XV

If there’s one thing you can count on when a new mainline instalment of Final Fantasy releases, it’s that the fanbase is going to be highly divided on it no matter what. For all its strengths and weaknesses, Final Fantasy XV is no exception. What […]
