Reflections on “This War of Mine”

I think I’ve got it this time. Of course, I’ve thought this at the start of every game. But this time, there are signs that my new strategy’s working. My crew’s in good health, we’ve got a respectable food stash, and no one’s sick or injured. Not only that but we’re...

Love Trains? How about some Mini Metro…

Somewhat sad confession: subway maps make me excited. That little piece of paper with candy-coloured lines blooming like veins represents travel and adventure for me. So it’s probably no surprise that Mini Metro has become one of my go-to tablet games. Mini Metro was developed by the even more endeari...

God of War

I was once a pretty conservative teenager, which meant the God of War franchise was certainly not for me! Gore!? Hidden sexy mini-games!?? NO WAY! But now, a few years on (just a few, ok!?), I was ready for whatever God of War could throw at me and if the previous God of War games are anything like this new...

Far Cry 5

Far Cry 5 opens with a helicopter ride and an expositional spiel about how Joseph Seed, The Father, has taken over Hope County. A few US Marshalls have been sent in to arrest him, including you, the Rookie. A beginning so basic and (if I had to admit) a bit boring, meant things weren’t boding well for...

Yakuza 6

They say first impressions last. And thank goodness this isn’t always true, because while Yakuza 6: The Song of Life is not immediately endearing, it’s worth letting it warm up. The game opens with around an hour of opening cinematics, broken up by one short combat tutorial. Now, I’m into cut scenes, I enjo...

Edifier G4 Gaming Headset: a little bit sexy

Okay, I admit that branding can be a point of pride for many gamers. But while I’d like to think of myself as a SteelSeries gal, I’m really just an indiscriminate gadget freak.  So it was with some guilt and excitement that I put my trusty Arctis 7 aside and donned Edifier’s G4 headset for...

Horizon Zero Dawn – The Frozen Wilds

Memrise aka How to make Korean friends

Since I was a teenager I have loved watching K-dramas and listening to K-Pop. My plan was always to actually learn the language ‘someday’, but being the non-committal blob of a human that I am, I never got around to it! Enter: Memrise For a lady of leisure such as myself, an app that promised to...

Super Mario Odyssey!

Okay, I’m going to be straight up with you. The only other Mario game I’ve ever played is Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. Mario for me was always some other console’s Crash Bandicoot (hey, I’m young, and I only played PlayStation as a kid). But Super Mario Odyssey almost made me feel...
