Firewatch: Isolation, Beauty, Philosophy Simulator

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.

Grow Home: A Time Machine for Not-Quite Yesteryear

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.

NOW PLAYING | Rocket League

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?

oquonie

NOW PLAYING | Oquonie

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.

Respawn at Insomnia54

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!

BBC Vilifies Minecraft to Parents. As Usual.

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.

VR Trinkets: The Roto VR and the Accessories of Tomorrow

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!

GDC: A Nice Time of Year

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: The 2015 Solution

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!

Hatred-r77

Would you believe it? Nether! This week’s Let’s Play sees Rob trying and failing to get used to the pace of a survival game, as he trudges from corner to corner boisterously fog-horning about not knowing what’s going on and where is he and what time is it. Dive in and watch it then!
