Random Loot: Thievery Of The Most Adequate Kind

  Random Loot is a new series in which I get to focus on one particular game, movie or even comic, be it relatively old or quite new, and then ramble about it, often going off-course in the process or using it to make a point about something else entirely. This series is far less […]

Random Loot: Man of Steel Ain’t So Super

  (This contains spoilers for Man of Steel.) Random Loot is a new series in which I get to focus on one particular game, movie or even comic, be it relatively old or quite new. This series is far less critical than my reviews. I’m less concerned with being entirely fair, and more with just […]

Random Loot: Rediscovering The Joys Of Gaming Through Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing And My Niece

Random Loot: Rediscovering The Joys Of Gaming Through Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing And My Niece

Hello, and welcome to Random Loot, a hopefully continous series of articles that give me a chance to discuss not only games but also films, comics and even TV series, depending on what’s got my attention at the time. For obvious reasons these will likely be far less critical than my reviews. Think of them […]

Titanfall And The Noob Criticisms

Advisory: this is an opinion piece, and therefore, strangely, is my opinion of something. In some cases it may not even be the opinion I personally hold, but rather one formed as an potential argument or point of debate, because yes, people can do that. Advisory 2: A small amount of foul language is used. […]

Free-To-Play Done Awesome: Loadout Shows The Way

The free-to-play market is one I usually avoid, wishing wholeheartedly to remain free of its potentially corrupting influence. On a more practical level there’s so many free-to-play games getting released that I could never hope to keep up with them all, and I wouldn’t even know where to start when it comes to reviewing them. […]

Battlefield 4 Was My Most Disappointing Game Of 2013

Before I begin this short but hopefully completely justified rant it’s important to clarify that something being disappointing is not the same as something being bad. It’s a fairly common misconception, one usually found on teh Internetz, but disappointing merely means that the thing in question did not live up to your expectations, whatever those […]

My Top Three Worst Games Of 2013

Having published the list of my favourite games from 2013 it made sense that I sit before my keyboard once more and write out a brief post talking about what I view as the three worst games I played in 2013, all while nursing a hangover. Yup, New Year’s Eve was….actually it was a really […]

My Top Ten Favourite Games Of 2013

Welcome one and all to my list of favourite games from 2013. As I put the finishing touches to this article I’m a few hours away from heading out and celebrating the arrival of another 365-day cycle, so I’d like to wish you all a very, very happy New Year! No doubt you’ve already come […]

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Xbox One Impressions

I sat down with an Xbox One copy of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag intending only to play a handful of hours in order to write a quick article about the differences between it and its Xbox 360 cousin, yet ended playing almost half way through the game, fully caught up once again in sailing […]

Metro, Dark Souls, Dumbing Down And Throwing Money At Things

  NOTE: This piece contains foul language. You have been warned, mortal. It seems that Deep Silver are pretty pleased with Metro: Last Light, which the company described to Joystiq as a “positive experience” during a fairly recent interview. And indeed they’re intending on continuing the series, which is of course great news for fans. […]
