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.

NieR: Automata

Every year we’re guaranteed to see a selection of blockbuster titles that are equal parts well designed, technically competent and expertly produced. They’re not always the most surprising games, but you enjoy them none the less because they’re so well made. Now imagine the opposite […]
