The Talos Principle

the-talos-principle-review-score

Platform(s): PC, MAC & Linux Release: 11/12/2014 It’s been quite awhile since I last invested myself into a puzzle game, but from what I heard about The Talos Principle before launch, it was seemingly going to be a decent experience. Admittedly, I had some initial […]

Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 09/12/2014 Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris is the successor to Lara Croft and the Guardians of Light; the wildly successful beginning of the tangential Lara Croft franchise. Available now for digital download on Xbox One, PS4 and Steam, it has […]

Dragon Age: Inquisition

Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 20/11/2014 Dragon Age, once a side-project to BioWare’s popular Mass Effect series, is a franchise that quickly grew from zero to hero. The first game, Dragon Age: Origins, wasn’t a great looking game, even for the time, but the development team had […]

Farming Simulator 15

snow-spin_review-score

Platform(s):Multi-Platform Release: 30/10/2014 30 hours. I pumped 30 god damn hours into this game. I could barely take 30 seconds, let alone 30 hours, so why was I so compelled to keep going? What foul eldritch horror convinced me to keep farming when I knew […]

Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 25/11/2014 Gosh I’ve been hanging out a long time for this, now. Between the end of Walking Dead Season 2 and that of Wolf Among Us Season 1, I’ve missed Telltale Games’ unique genre of click-your-own-adventure games. I’m also a pretty big […]

Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 20/11/2014 Oh, what a glorious day it is, brothers, for Pagan Min’s light shines down upon us all. His grace and tenure brighten our lives and give us hope in an age of mediocrity, for he, and only he, understands the needs […]

Assassin’s Creed: Unity

ac-unity-review-score

Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 13/11/2014 To pay proper respect to a game and its developers, it’s important to take it exactly as it is. This means momentarily forgetting anything I thought about its predecessor, or how many times this particular game completely crashed my Xbox one […]

Never Alone (Kisima Ingitchuna)

never-alone-review-score

Platform(s): PC, PS4 & XB1 Release: 18/11/2014 I firmly believe that people can be both educated and inspired by video games. By playing out a story and performing actions within a game, creators can teach us about history and pass on information about a certain […]

Civilization: Beyond Earth

civ-beyond-earth-review-score

Platform(s): PC Exclusive Release: 24/10/2014 The Civilization series has an enduring legacy littered with broken spacebars, bleary eyes, and the crushed cities of Gandhi’s enemies. We all like to joke of the vice-like grip the series has on those hapless souls locked into the classic […]

Lords of the Fallen

Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 30/10/2014 As someone who regularly plays a lot of different games, I’ve started to become frustrated with poor design choices that needlessly waste my time. I really don’t enjoy trivial objectives that fail to engage players in a meaningful way, or, at […]
