Preview: Witchery Academy

There’s an undeniable charm in the visuals of Witchery Academy, which has a very Studio Ghibli-esque feel to its wonderfully designed characters and environments. Witchery Academy is an ambitious life simulator which sees players cast as magical students with a cat companion, attending classes and learning skills such as spell casting, gardening, brewing potions, crafting and more. You’ll be able […]

Preview: Unspottable

I played quite a few demos as part of the Xbox Summer Game Fest, many of which were games that I’m very keen to get my hands on when they’re released. One that had flown under the radar for me until I tried the demo was Unspottable, which is honestly one of the best local multiplayer games I’ve played in […]

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 […]

Preview: Pope Simulator

Ultimate Games seem to be trying to corner the market in bizarre, controversial ‘Simulator’ games. Despite the Polish indie making their name with a straightforward and highly regarded sim game – Ultimate Fishing Simulator – they’ve released other sims, some more straight faced than others, but perhaps the most oddball (not to mention the most deliberately controversial) sim they’ve been […]

Preview: Quest Arrest (Game Boy)

If you’d told me thirty years ago that I’d still be playing Game Boy games I’d probably have laughed awkwardly and walked away shaking my head at you, despite how much I adored – and still adore – Nintendo’s charming chonk of a handheld. If you’d told me that I would be playing an entirely new Game Boy game in […]

Preview: Transformers TCG – Titan Masters Attack

I’ve covered the Transformers TCG (Trading Card Game) a few times before; reviewing the base game and taking a look at some of the excellent expansions, for example – so when I was given some details on the newest wave of cards, I was incredibly excited to share the details. One of the things I’ve been consistently impressed with in […]

Weekly Round Up

I seemed to cover an awful lot of ground this week; though it was at my usual pace of an article a day, it certainly felt as if I covered more than usual. So I wouldn’t blame you if you missed anything; it seems to me that it’s a good idea take a look at what I wrote about over […]

Still coming… (NSFW)

I almost can’t believe that I’m writing about this again. The first time I wrote about this was last year, early on in my blogging days – and quickly became my most viewed post, holding that record for a number of months. Yet here we are. 2020 has arrived and Wanking Simulator is coming. That’s probably a poor choice of […]

XBox Series X

Well, that was a surprise, wasn’t it? Last night, during The Game Awards 2019, Microsoft unveiled their next gen Xbox (previously codenamed Project Scarlett) – and the name has also […]
