News: Xbox & Bethesda

Just a few hours ago, Xbox social media accounts – led by Head of Xbox, Phil Spencer – dropped an absolute bombshell, just 24 hours (or less, in some regions) prior to the opening of pre-orders for the next gen Xbox consoles. Microsoft have acquired ZeniMax Media, owner of Bethesda Softworks – a company which itself is made up of […]

Game Pass: New for August

Perhaps it’s just me, but Game Pass has felt fairly quiet for a little while. It’s certainly not a bad thing; there’s an incredible volume of games that I’ve yet to even touch, so it’s good to get a bit of a breather and try to catch up with some titles every now and then. Yesterday’s announcement of what’s coming […]

First Impressions: Neon Abyss

Though the number of indie games that have roguelite elements or structures seems to be increasing exponentially, there are certain elements that make these elements really appealing, both from the designer’s and player’s perspective. Chief among these is the procedural generation, which usually helps to keep things feeling suitably fresh, exciting and surprising when done right. The level of challenge […]

Weekly Round-Up

Just as yesterday was the first time in a long time that I’ve looked at my recent Game Pass Adventures, I’ve not done a round up of my articles for quite a while either. It’s always useful for me to take a look back at what I’ve covered too, because I seem to be able to cover quite a bit […]

Game Pass Adventures

It’s been a while since I last wrote an article covering the games that I’ve been playing on Game Pass, but there seems to have been an awful lot of conversation on social media recently about the Xbox One’s biggest selling points – and almost everyone in the discussion agreed that Game Pass has been an absolutely incredible service that’s […]

Review: Fractured Minds

As someone with numerous mental health problems myself, I was initially a bit anxious about playing Fractured Minds. It looked pretty creepy and I really struggle to deal with horror games – especially when they’re laser focused on mental health issues that I already have difficulty dealing with. Thankfully, though it doesn’t deal with these issues in an ‘easy’ or […]

Game Pass Adventures

With no end in sight to the current situation with COVID-19, for many of us gaming has been a welcome respite from the anxiety and general uncertainty that’s disrupted our normal day to day lives. Game Pass has been invaluable for me, as it so often is – particularly given that everyone’s financial situation and job security is uncertain – […]

Review: Gears of War 3

Despite the fact that I played through the original Gears of War back when it was first released in 2006, I was never a fan. The gameplay felt way too linear and predictable, the story was full of unintentionally hilarious moments that were supposed to be badass (not to mention the smirk inducing, accidental homoeroticism), the visuals – while technically […]

Game Pass Adventures

It’s been a while since I covered my newest discoveries on Game Pass, but given that I’ve been spending an awful lot of time working my way through Square Enix’s excellent Tomb Raider trilogy (now finding myself around halfway through the third part, Shadow of the Tomb Raider), I’ve not spent as much time exploring Game Pass titles as I […]

Review: Totally Reliable Delivery Service

Version Played: Xbox One – Also available on: Switch, PS4, PC Though not a new phenomenon, I’ve certainly noticed the rise of chaotic, physics based sandbox games since the release – and success – of Goat Simulator. Hilariously bonkers games such as Octodad, I Am Bread and Human Fall Flat immediately spring to mind when thinking of this type of […]

Game Pass Adventures

It’s been a big week for Game Pass, with Yakuza 0, Kingdom Hearts III and Two Point Hospital all released on the service. However, I’ve had limited gaming time and – if you’ve been reading my reviews regularly, you’ll know this already – my attention has still been mostly fixed on Jurassic World: Evolution, specifically the DLC campaigns that I’m […]
