I wrote this a week ago, and even then it was about two weeks late. I saw DOOM was due for release this Friday, no less, so figured I better tell you about my short, intoxicated battle with its weekend Beta.
I”M BACK. I mean. For the moment. Here’s a stream of unintelligible thoughts I had when I played Firewatch a little while back. I quite liked it.
I played Grow Home quite a while ago now, but here I am, many weeks later, trying with a breathless, unhinged enthusiasm, to explain why it felt like a PS2 game in the very best way.
The Stanley Parable designer William Pugh has put out another game. It’s brilliant and free and everything you are not. Play it now. Drink it in. Improve your life.
I love Fallout. All I’ve ever wanted to do is wander around abandoned, ruined cities occasionally shooting robots. So why can’t I play 4? Read this inane dribbling to sort of find out!
Kim played the new Tomb Raider at Eurogamer Expo this year. Amidst an unfulfilled want to lock a butler in the fridge again, find out what she thought!
Of course, I’m playing Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, and of course, the balloons are my favourite bit.
Rob’s been playing Rocket League, in some sort of desperate attempt to get away from The Witcher for 40 seconds. Can he possibly enjoy a FOOTBALL CAR game?
Just like everyone else in the entire world, Kim has been playing The Witcher 3. Jump in to find out what she THINKS of the popular Westeros ’em up!
I’ve been playing Oquonie, among other things, and its unique, abstract world is something to get lost in. That’s both your character, and your sense of things that aren’t written by David Firth.
We’re BACK video lovers, back with more tepid ambiguity to really try and mess up your day. Yes, following our Nekro Preview, here’s a Nekro Let’s Play, in which I fail to do anything substantial in the game! Hoorah.
Mike Bithell’s new ‘un Volume gets a good hard grilling this week, sort of, and during the process Rob stumbles across the real importance of good voice acting, no matter the type of game! Hurl yourself in bodily and HAVE A READ why not.
PREVIEWS. We do those too, seemingly, and here we see Rob preening about in a coloured cloak and raising some demons to do the things he can’t be bothered to do in Nekro! Find out what he thought in this, our Early Access Preview!
Don’t know what Insomnia is? Well, neither did we; other than that debilitating inability to sleep. Turns out it’s also a pretty great gaming show in Coventry. Here’s what happened at our first Insomnia experience!
PARENTING! There’s a subject we’ve not covered much, but lowe and behold wait around long enough and a monkey turns into a Spanish Einstein. Or something. The BBC have been dicks about Minecraft. Here I am telling people how to bring up their kids as a result.
Kim gets to grips with the first episode of the time-travelling life ’em up Life is Strange! Find out what she thought in this REVIEW. Which we do actually do. I just have to get other people to do them.
ACCESSORIES, we all love those don’t we? Well no. Not if you ever bought a dodgy second Playstation controller. Or one of those ridiculous Wii tennis racket things. I had a go on the Roto VR and speculate about the part accessories will play in VR gear in this latest Monday blether!
Monday has returned! With a due sense of foreboding and dread, here I am discussing why I spent so long staring at a menu in Peacewalker, and how it’s not even the first time it’s FLIPPING happened. /delirium.
It’s THE WEEK IN GAMES. Well sort of. Here’s this week’s inane rambling about how GDC and Valve made Rob feel ALL EXCITED for games again. Just like when he was a small child, locked in a basement, excited at the prospect of sunlight. Or something.
Nintendo enter 2015 facing yet more problems, but it’s OKAY because Rob thinks he has the answer. He doesn’t. Or does he? See how his solution withers and falls apart inside!
