Offworld Trading Company

OWTC_Review_Recommendation

Offworld Trading Company (OTC) is the RTS game that I never knew I wanted. Nuanced unit control and micro-management are my favourite parts of RTS games, so I was rather unenthused when I heard about an RTS game lacking any form of combat or unit […]

LEGO_Star_Wars_ForceAwakens_Recommended

LEGO and Star Wars: these are just two of my favourite things. I have to be honest, though, as this is somehow the first LEGO Star Wars game I’ve played despite the fact the first game in the series launched on more than a decade […]

ROTK_Review_Recommendation

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 […]

Dangerous Golf

Dangerous_Golf_Review_Recommendation

I love it when sports games go against the norm to create something unique. A great example of this is Blood Bowl, which combines Warhammer and NFL – a ridiculous idea on paper, I know, but it works exceptionally well in the video game world. […]

The Technomancer

Technomancer_Review_Recommendation

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 […]

Sherlock_Devils_Daugher_Review

I love Sherlock Holmes, not that this is a bold statement by any stretch, but first things first, I love me some detecting. There’s a saying: “You’re always within three feet of a spider,” and the same could be said of Sherlock. You are never […]

Back in 2010, Playdead released a little monochrome platformer called LIMBO that went on to become one of the most successful indie games of all time. Since then, it has been ported to almost every platform imaginable and was reported to have sold more than […]

Kirby: Planet Robobot

Kirby-Planet-Robobot_Review_Recommendation

I find Kirby to be a terrifying being in himself (though that’s a topic for another article) but I still love the little guy, and I generally enjoy his starring titles. Kirby’s a pretty versatile character, with his games ranging from side-scrolling platform-puzzlers to soaring […]

Hearts of Iron IV

Hearts-of-Iron-IV_Review_Recommendation

It’s a given that strategy games are more complicated than other genres. They’re more demanding on a player to know what’s going on and how to respond, and their unforgiving nature doesn’t help the accessibility. But, hey, to hell with casuals, am I right? We’ve […]
