Kickstarter: The Star Legation

I first covered The Star Legation earlier this year after checking out the impressive and rather generously sized demo. I was very taken with how well written the game was, as well as the variety on offer with the look and feel of the characters you interact with along the way. The Star Legation is currently seeking funds on Kickstarter […]

Microsoft have acquired ZeniMax Media, owner of Bethesda Softworks – a company which itself is made up of […]

Review: Maneater

I was far too young for Jaws when I first watched it in the early 80s, but I became obsessed with it – and sharks in general. The fearsome, toothy killers of the deep are a perennially popular oceanic villain too; Shark Week is a thing, of course – and shark horror is essentially its own genre now, even if […]

Board Game Review: Shadowrun: Zero Day

Though I’ve just covered another Shadowrun board game this week (the Lords of Waterdeep-esque Shadowrun: Sprawl Ops), I’ve also recently acquired two player card game Shadowrun: Zero Day. For once in a Shadowrun game, the complexity and buckets-of-dice elements are dialled down or tossed out entirely, leaving a more focused, fast-paced experience that goes all in on presenting just one […]

Review: Shadow of the Tomb Raider

Version Played: Xbox One (Xbox One X Enhanced) – also available on PS4 and PC Lockdown is a funny thing. I wouldn’t normally have had the time to work my way through a single Tomb Raider game in a reasonable period of time, let alone an entire trilogy. Yet that’s exactly what I’ve been able to do over the last […]

Pecaminosa – Crowdfunding Campaign Launch

Though I’ve shone a spotlight on Pecaminosa a few times before, the game’s Indiegogo campaign is live as of today – so it’s a great opportunity to spread the word of this wonderful looking game once more. Billed as a ‘Pixel Noir’ game, Pecaminosa is a game that has definitely had my attention for a long time now. Dripping in […]

Review: Dungeon Adventure

Price: Free – Available via Amazon Alexa-enabled devices – Website Though there’s a lot of privacy-related concerns surrounding voice activated, always connected tech (which are more than justified, I might add), there’s some incredibly cool features that few people may know about, let alone even try. I’m not sure where or how I stumbled upon the idea of playing RPGs […]

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 […]
