The disadvantage of not working at somewhere like IGN is that I can’t casually ask for some plane tickets in order to fly out and chat to developers face-to-face. Still, while I can’t afford to go jetting off I can at least afford to fire off an Email […]

It has seen a resurgence of popularity, which is wonderful, but now every game and its cousin seems to be getting sold as a roguelike despite […]
Long term readers will know that usually my movie related content is kept solely to opinion pieces, but from now on I’ll be running the occasional movie review, sometimes with spoilers and sometimes not. Speaking of which, SPOILER WARNING! There’s a moment in the film where Hawkeye takes […]
The Mortal Kombat franchise may have gone veering wildly into the Woods of Crappiness for a while there but Netherealm finally brought the fighter back onto the right path with Mortal Kombat 9, a blisteringly fun game that I utterly adored. It wasn’t the most technically challenging fighter, hence it not really appearing much on the tournament scene, but I’d take it over the Street Fighter series any day of the week, favoring the quicker pace, brutal combat and Netherealms commitment to never taking itself too seriously. Now Mortal Kombat X is here and while it doesn’t do anything truly new to reinvigorate the genre it does improve on its predecessor in many ways while retaining everything that has ever made the series legendary.

Do you like to read? If the answer is no then you should seriously consider abandoning this review now, not because of my jumbled writings, although that would be a valid reason in itself, but because Pillars of Eternity is a lore-heavy RPG that pays homage to the classics such as Baldurs Gate, cherry picking everything great about grand adventures to craft one of the deepest role-playing experiences around. It’s not for everyone, though: it’s not an exciting game in the traditional sense, the presentation of the game used to tell a compelling story set in an equally compelling world where reading vast amounts of text is required just for the primary story. If you want to tackle everything, be prepared to read enough combined wordage to make George R. R. Martin take a step back and seriously consider what he’s doing. If that doesn’t sound very interesting just stop reading here. Maybe fire up Call of Duty and shoot some people or something.
