Shovel Knight


Platform(s): PC, Wii U & 3DS Release: 26/06/2014 I wasn’t really sure if I would enjoy this game. I’ve seen a few “8-bit” titles recently, and some of them turned out to be pretty good, I suppose? However, here was yet another one, and I […]

Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 22/07/2014 The Walking Dead is a rare creature in that it so surreptitiously crawls under your skin, for which you will only notice once your salty tears are stinging the wound it left behind while killing cherished characters. I’ve never felt emotions […]

The Fall


Platform(s): PC, Mac & Linux Release: 30/05/2014 Steam sales are just the best, right? In fact, there are few things that I enjoy more than picking a random game that I’ve never heard of before, going in with absolutely no expectations whatsoever, and then proceeding […]
