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 […]

Mighty No. 9

Disclaimer: The author of this review received a key for the game because he backed the game on Kickstarter when this all began. He spent actual, real currency on this and was part of the many thousands of people who helped conjure it into reality. […]

Hearts of Iron IV

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 […]

SUPERHOT

I’m torn. On the one hand, SUPERHOT is the most innovative shooter I’ve played in years! However, this is not a $30 game by any stretch of the imagination. There’s a couple of core mechanics, a bunch of levels and a heap of extra modes […]
