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...

South Park: The Fractured But Whole

In a follow up to the critically acclaimed South Park: The Stick of Truth, the new kid is back in the new South Park: The Fractured But Whole! This time the wizard hats have been hung up and the swords have been sheathed, because all the cool kids are playing superheros now. The game starts you where you en...

Fornite Battle Royale

The first thing to say is that I don’t like cartoon type games. I’ve never been a fan of games like Overwatch, etc, I just cant get into them. However, I am a fan of FPS and play a lot of PUBG (PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds), and when I saw this I thought, hey, this looks like it might be a go. So, I downlo...

The Pillars of the Earth: Book One

Man, life was hard in the middle ages. Especially when you have to give birth. In the snow. And your husband has no clue what to do. This is pretty much how useless I was playing as Tom Builder in the prologue of The Pillars of the Earth. Watching my wife bleed all over the ground, I finally had enough wits...

Agents of Mayhem Review

I’m a big fan of developer Volition’s Saints Row series of games with their satirical and larger than life style and absurdly hilarious missions, so when I was given the opportunity to review Volition’s new game, Agents of Mayhem, I jumped at the chance. Agents of Mayhem is an open world, 3rd person shooter...

Hitman GO

Agent 47 returns in this reimagining of Square Enix’s Hitman. In this turn-based puzzler, you control Agent 47 as he do-si-dos around security, dogs, armed men and civilians to reach his mark. If you’ve played any of the other Hitman games, the new take on this may startle you at first. The worl...

Lara Croft GO

Mobile gaming used to involve lots of primary colours and fruit slicing. That’s what I thought anyway.  Until Lara Croft GO.  I wish that I could say that my motivation in trying this was because of Lara Croft herself – just one of the most famous female protagonists ever. But sadly no. I just w...

Review: Detention

I’m someone who likes to trick myself into thinking I can handle, even enjoy, the horror genre. So when the opportunity to review Detention popped up I was all like ‘pfft yea of course I can handle it LOL’. After all, it’s basically a point and click side-scrolling game  with 0% comb...

Empyrion – Galactic Survival

According to the description, Empyrion is a 3D open world, a space survival adventure in which you can fly across space and land on planets; build, explore, and fight in a hostile galaxy. What they don’t tell you is at the beginning there is a lot more non-survival than survival. The story goes like this: E...

Push Me Pull You

“Argh,” I think as I watch the game trailer, “I can’t look away.” My brain doesn’t quite know what to make of the images on screen. Pink sausage shaped bodies writhe and twirl around each other. On each end of the bodies is a human head, in a similar vein to CatDog. And y...

PlayerUnknown’s BattleGrounds

PUBG, as it is known to many (variously rendered, but I call it “pub-g”), is an MMO battle royale style game. The goal is to be the last player/duo/squad to survive being killed by other players, or an ever-decreasing circle of murderous electricity (we call it “the blue”, or “the blue circle”). It is other...
