Review: Colin Thiele's Storm Boy – The Game

Version Played: Xbox One – Also available on: Android, iOS, PS4, Switch, PC, Mac I hadn’t heard of Storm Boy before coming across the video game adaptation in an Xbox One sale, but the Australian novel it’s based on has been a perenially popular childrens book since its publication in 1966. It’s been adapted into a film twice – once […]

Game Pass Adventures

Readers, this week has been a monumental week for me on Game Pass. Why is that? Well, let’s find out… The Witcher III Yep, this is exactly why. Having been made available on Game Pass a short while ago – and with the Henry Cavill-starring Netflix series causing serious thirst around the world – I finally got a chance to […]

Review: Roll’d

Out: Now – Price: £1.79/$1.99 – Nintendo Switch A strange but oddly compelling little game, Roll’d dumps you into proceedings without telling you anything at all – your little character running along a pathway for…reasons.

The cards have amusing, simple and childlike illustrations, along with humorous names for the Muddles themselves. The problem is that there’s very little […]

Game Pass Adventures

It’s been a while since I last covered the games that I’ve been playing on Game Pass; it’s a service that has become absolutely essential for me. I’m often unable to justify spending the full RRP on games, given my limited budget, but Game Pass removes that barrier for many big games; crucially, they’re also available on the same day […]

First Impressions: Bloody Trains

A phrase I can be heard muttering to myself quite often on the commute home from work, Bloody Trains is another game from indie developer and purveyor of very odd experiences, Marginal Act. I’ve looked at two of their games before – baffling tea delivery simulator TUTUTUTU Tea Party and Vasilis. The former seems to share quite a lot of […]
