No Man’s Sky

Author’s Note: I would love to have taken some screenshots to illustrate my points a bit better, but as you might have heard, the PC version of the game is a little crash-prone when it comes to alt-tabbing, screenshots or being opened. Apologies for the […]

Bear With Me – Episode One

When I first stumbled across Bear With Me, I’m not sure what struck me first: the fact it’s a point ‘n’ click adventure or that it’s a noir-inspired tale starring a teddy bear detective. I’m a massive fan of crime and mystery thrillers from the […]

Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII

This is the first Romance of the Three Kingdoms (ROTK) game I’ve ever played, so I can’t compare XIII to the rest of the series. On the other hand, I have read a translation of the ROTK novel, and I’ve probably played too much Dynasty […]

The Technomancer

Occasionally there are those games that seem from beyond their time, pushing the boundaries of typical genres or creating new paradigms. The Technomancer is not one of these games. Developed by French studio Spiders, The Technomancer harks back to Bioware RPGs from the early 2000s […]
