Hit by the Rebels – Sir you are being hunted

Have you ever looked, I mean really looked, at the British? If you stare at your TV monitor long enough you might notice that according to the media they are pale, impolite, impatient beings that go about their days without emotions as if working a perfect schedule. They seem cold and distant compared to the rest of humanity. They almost seem like automatons. Believe what you see on TV folks, they are robots! Sir You Are Being Hunted is a 2014 survival stealth game that was developed by Big Robot and published digitally on Steam. It released on PC and can be played on Mac OS X and Linux as well. When you, the Sir (or Madam), find yourself on […]

Fallout 4

 

 I run swiftly towards a large abandoned house, my empty gun smoking and my feet kicking up dust and detritus with each foot fall. I can feel sweat running down the back of my neck, and I swear I can feel my enemies breath flowing over my spine. I do not think I am going to make it. In fact, I am almost certain of it. The door of the house looks locked. I could probably break into it. But it may take me some time. Time I do not have. My feet hit the steps of the entrance. My enemy is right behind me. I blink, fearing the end. Suddenly there is an almighty eruption of gunfire and explosions. […]

Wookiee Wednesday Westwood Wonderment

 

 Hey there kids, come sit round and listen to an old man grumble about the good old days of gaming. You see back before the time of you younglings, there was more to gaming than Call of Duty, DOTA, and World of Warcraft (and their numerous clones that you are now telling me are better for an infinite number of pointless reasons, that are meaningless to anyone but you). One of the absolute highlights of this golden (well I suppose Silver, Gold probably belongs to the NES) age of gaming was Westwood Studios, who until EA sent in their hordes of salesmen to ruin all their franchises, was one of the pinnacles of the industry. Founded in October 1985 (meaning […]

Fallout 4: Yes, No, Maybe?

There is something romantic in wandering the radioactive wastes alone and heavily armed. I cannot place my finger on the exact reason it gets my heart pumping. Perhaps it’s to do with the smell of the dust? The Gamma flavoured air? The joy of eating 200 year old canned food? Or perhaps it’s do to with slaughtering your foes, smashing their skulls in, looting their corpses and flogging their junk? Perhaps it’s all of these fantastic elements combined. Who knows? Regardless, the time has come to once again don the habiliments of the waste, raise your Plasma Rifle and charge into the fray! The time has come for FALLOUT 4. Now over the past few months. Nay, years. Over the […]

Review – Grand Theft Auto V

 

 If the notion that “crime doesn’t pay” ever crosses your mind, you may want to have a chat with the Rockstar Games guys or the fictional crew you control in Grand Theft Auto.

Review – Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt

 

 At the sight of the full moon he stopped dead in his tracks. “Run” he thought, for he knew from the glossary that werewolves had increased stamina and an accelerated healing factor under these conditions, not to mention that a rare species of moon-wraith would be on the prowl as well. Nervously he placed one foot after the other, succeeding the next more hastily than the last. “Where are my swords? Why do I feel so empty?” He then promptly marched into a glass door and was reminded that; even though the Witcher 3 is the most intricate and detailed monster hunting simulator one could lay hands on, it was still just a game, and that glass door accidents hurt.
