Hardback: Call Me a Literary Padawan

Did you know that “anil” is a word? I didn’t. But my AI opponent has just scored a preposterous 4 points on a word that doesn’t exist in my vocabulary. So much for my university degree in English. On the bright side, I have been meaning to combat exposure to cat memes and emojis by expanding my ...

The Making of Mavericks: Proving Grounds

Mavericks is a new and interesting looking battle royale-type game that is coming soon to a PC near you. I recently wrote an article for PMG with some information about how things are supposed to look. In that info was a suggestion that there would be a closed beta happening this month, which I had hoped to...

Alto’s Odyssey

I get home from an especially full on day. I’m feeling tired and a bit stressed out. I have one of those tension headaches lurking around, making me frown and fueling some serious grumps. I pull out my phone, open Alto’s Odyssey and feel it all melt away…. It sounds annoyingly dramatic, bu...

Istanbul: Digital Edition – As Close to a Market as You’ll Get with a Board Game

My take on board game ports has increasingly been “yes please”. So I was excited to see Acram Digital bringing Rüdiger Dorn’s Istanbul to mobile, especially with it being such a high-scorer on Board Game Geek. I have to admit that I’ve never played the physical board game. But I’m no stranger to similar eco...

Florence and Me: My Relationship with a Mobile App

As I write this, I have a warm cup of coffee on my desk. I’ve lit a candle. The mellow strains of the compositions of Kevin Penkin (the composer for Florence‘s soundtrack) are piping through my speakers. Because if Florence has taught me anything, environment, feeling and, as the Danish say, the...

The Crew 2

As a gamer, I have never been one for racing games. Sure, Mario-Kart and Crash Team Racing are two of the greatest games of all time but that’s because weapons make racing games better. I have never really been attracted to the more realistic racing simulators. When the opportunity arose to review The...

Golf Club: Wasteland

“Why,” is my initial reaction to games involving golf. It’s not a game I enjoy playing in real life, much less virtually. Fortunately, Golf Club: Wasteland is less about men in polo shirts (sorry if you’re into that sort of thing) than an atmospheric version of Angry Birds. And havin...

Supertype! Not Just a Game for Nanas

  The name Supertype might make you think that this is for people who like Scrabble and crosswords. I have nothing against these people (being one myself) but I would be very sad if someone overlooked Supertype as a game only your Nana would play. Sure, the game’s aesthetics has a bunch of backdr...

E3 2018: Sony Conference Highlights

Sony started things off in a nicely decorated church. After a banjo player serenaded the standing audience, a clip from the Last of Us Part II played, which started off in a similarly decorated room The Last of Us Part II It goes from happy, friendly times, to not-so-friendly times, back to a nice ending al...

E3 2018: Ubisoft Conference Highlights

Ubisoft’s conference started off with a bang. To announce a game like Just Dance 2019, I have learned that you don’t need to have someone stand on a stage and say some words. A dancing panda and a lot of colourful costumes will work just fine, if not better. It was a great start and I was pumped for w...

In a shock announcement at their E3 conference, Ubisoft has stated that in the next Assassin’s Creed you’ll be able to choose your character’s gender. You can choose to play from one of two set characters, either Alexios or Kassandra. This will come as welcome news for many fans of the ser...
