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 […]

O Stadia, Where Art Thou?

Hands up if you remembered that Google launched a console-less video game streaming service last year? I’d forgive you if you weren’t able to recall that; it seems that those responsible for Stadia’s muted launch weren’t interested in promoting it either, even on launch day. There’s been the odd snippet of news here and there, as well as the update […]

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. It takes a few seconds – and a few failures – to truly grasp what’s going on. You don’t control the character at all; in […]

Review: Down to Hell

Version Played: Switch – Out Now – Price £8.99/$9.99 – Published by: Ultimate Games SA I always think that developers make their lives so much harder for themselves when creating […]

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 […]

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 […]

So long, 2019 – and thank you!

Another year has passed and I’m pleased with the progress that I’ve made. I’ve maintained the dramatic weight loss that I achieved last year (which I wrote about here), I created a Twitter account – and have had met some absolutely amazing people because of it – and I’ve come so far with my writing, which is most definitely the […]
