Well, that was a weird week. Travelling to a very intimidating meeting for my day job and having a day out of work to attend a funeral for a beloved family member added to my general lack of energy this week – and yet…I still, somehow, managed to get an article published every day. Let’s see what I covered this week, shall we?
Another in my ‘It Came From The Bargain Bin’ series of articles taking a look at – and potentially re-evaluating – games from older generations now that they’re at super cheap, I checked out the ridiculously fun, massively chaotic destruction of Mercenaries 2: World in Flames. Though it’s aged particularly badly from a visual point of view (especially in cut scenes), it remains a wonderfully entertaining experience and is now available for a few quid at most. Well worth checking out!
Next up was a preview of the absolutely incredible looking Chains of Fury, a comic book styled FPS coming to PC and Switch next year. Early word on this makes it sound very appealing indeed – and its Mike Mignola inspired visuals are absolutely stunning.
With a Kickstarter campaign underway to bring Sensible World of Soccer to mobile devices, I took a look at the game as the campaign launched.
Sensible World of Soccer’s Kickstarter campaign wasn’t the only exciting launch this week; the collective of indie writers at Into The Sanctum launched their website too. Being one of those Knights of the Sanctum (The Indie Knight, no less!), the launch featured a new article from yours truly.
Brilliant indie title Minit got an unusual review from me this week, with my article written as if I was having to constantly reset and start again, getting a little further each time – just as you do in the game!
A massively exciting thing happened this week, with the publication of my first review for a major website. Naturally, I couldn’t let this pass without announcing it to my readers – and I wanted to express my gratitude to all of you for your support – which gave me the confidence to push myself into writing for other websites. You’re all amazing and I couldn’t have done this without you. I really do mean it – thank you!
Finally this week, a look at the rather lovely little racing game, Lonely Mountains: Downhill. I really enjoyed this one – and it’s available on Game Pass too!
So that’s it for yet another week. Thanks again to everyone who takes the time to read and give me feedback on my articles – I really do appreciate it. I hope you’ve all had a great week!
