I Finally Played Overwatch

I Finally Played Overwatch

Don’t say we don’t do current affairs here at Respawn. Well, okay, you can say it. I finally got into a game I THOUGHT I’d love, on its ceremonious ‘Free Weekend’ (incidentally I played it on a Monday so). Here’s what I THOUGHT!

I played the Destiny 2 Beta on PC! It was ruddy good! Who’d have thought I’d manage something topical! See some words and some beta puns in this post!

You Should Play The Temple Of No Immediately

I know it’s been a while, but I’ve been very busy. Anyway, with this site’s oldest partner in crime’s wedding out of the way, I scribbled some words on my run through The Temple of No the other night. It’s great. Play it now.

Absurdist Inferences, Reflection and Wonder: Playdead’s INSIDE

Inside’s PS4 release finally spurred me to splurge the cash, and as it turns out I wasn’t wrong to do so. Winding, visually lyrical, thought-provoking… an entirely metaphorical game? Here’s what I reckon to Limbo’s successor.

Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection Review

I finally played all the Uncharteds. I know. What a shock. This is probably the fastest I’ve ever finished three games in a row. Smush the link and listen to babble on about them for a bit eh.

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.

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?

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.

REVIEW: Anarchy Reigns

Guesty finally got off his ass and decided to write a review for a game that came out months ago. Isn’t that nice of him? This game crawled out from under the woodwork, much like Guesty after his four day bender of drinking nothing but Mountain Dew he bought from a man in a grey van in some car park.
