5 Things I Love About No Man’s Sky & 1 Thing I Don’t

Sometimes you’ve got to wait till after the honeymoon period to find out how you really feel about something. Now that I’ve been flying around different systems and discovered many different planets and creatures and how fricking scary the sentinels can be, I may have come to a final stance on the game. Her...

Overcooked

The Onion Kingdom is in danger and only the finest cooking can save it! “If we are the Onion Kingdom’s last hope, I feel like they didn’t think through their contingency plan very well,” I think as the kitchen goes up in flames. Another order for a burger comes in and my husband, the...

I Failed Economics. But Why Do I Still Like this Game?!

Ever since Starcraft, I’ve been on the hunt for a good real-time strategy game to replace the addiction. And I may just have found it. At first, Offworld Trading Company seems more like an indie version of some educational programme trying to make economics fun. There’s no fighting involved, no ...

80 Days: Feel More Cultured While Gaming

One day, I realized I hadn’t finished a single book in the entire year thus far (“thus far” being June). It was a little depressing considering I’d beaten my goal for reading the previous year. More depressing considering that out of over-confidence, I’d set my goal for this ye...

Doom

Doom. The word jumped out at me from the case, screaming my inevitable fate and the chances of my surviving the next hour or so. I had absolutely no idea what I was getting into. I was told it was a horror shooter, and I hate horror games. I haven’t finished The Last of Us (another game I haven’t finished. ...

Games for Non-Gamers

I write this from personal experience. Having married one of the few guys who needs to be bribed  into playing video games, I feel like I’ve got a pretty good perspective on this. Over the years, I’ve gotten a feel for what works and what doesn’t. Despite my husband’s avid claims tha...

Star Wars: The Old Republic Review

 By Geoff Gummer A while back, a friend suggested I try Star Wars, The Old Republic (http://swtor.com) as an epic, free to play RPG where I could just play verses the environment, and follow some interesting storylines. So I signed up, and this is what I found.   This game first came online in a partnership...

Hatoful Boyfriend Review

One day, I was rolling around on the floor complaining to nobody in particular that I was bored. Very bored. So I jumped onto Facebook to find someone and tell them just how bored I was. It was a public holiday, so everybody was overseas or in a different part of the country, which meant no one was availabl...

Why DotA 2 Eats N00bs for Breakfast

In considering a review for one of the most highly-successful (and possibly most hated) games in MOBA history, I scrapped that idea. Almost every gamer already has an opinion of DotA 2. And to be fair, no one is really wrong. Ask any gamer what DotA is and you’ll usually get one of the following respo...

There’s Poop in My Soup Review

It’s got an intriguing title but is a turdfest enough to make a good game? That’s what I’m about to find out as I load it up, making sure that I’m offline on Steam to avoid snide messages from my gaming friends. The game is simple – so simple in fact that the developers donR...

Far Cry Primal Review

The latest installment in the Far Cry series does a bit of a jump. Instead of hang gliding in Asia, getting attacked by surprisingly aggressive honey badgers, or constantly having to juice yourself up with malaria medicine, we’ve gone way back into the past to when elephants were hairier, collecting human e...

Stardew Valley Review

I walked onto the land my grandfather had left for me. A derelict farm covered in weeds and rock and fallen trees. “It needs a bit of doing up,” the mayor said as he showed me into the dilapidated house, “But I’m sure you can make it work.” This has to be a joke, I thought. But I had...
