Okay, okay, I didn’t think No Man’s Sky was absolutely brilliant, but it had some worthwhile moments and is therefore absolutely worth playing if you can nab it for free. Good thing I’m giving away a copy for free, eh? To enter all you have to do is […]
I always hate writing about myself, it's such a pain in the ass to know where I should start.
I'm twenty-two years young and love to play, as you may have already guessed. When WolfsGamingBlog.com started up it was simply because I found writing to be a good form of stress relief for when my Cystic Fibrosis was getting me down or simply because I had been having a bad week. When I started writing I never dreamed that people would actually read it, or that it would ever get this big. It's mind boggling.
My writing isn't the best, but through trial, error and the comments of readers I strive to improve it so I can provide fair reviews. My ultimate goal is to prove that not everyone in the gaming media are corrupt idiots intent on delivering false reviews.
Other than that I'm a fully qualified lifeguard and used to teach first-aid and life-saving skills to kids. What more is there to say? Hmmm, well I love music, reading and films. I'm a drummer, enjoy going swimming and tend to get distracted by shiny objects.
Is that a fifty-pence?

Having skipped the last entry in the series, which proved to be somewhat controversial due to its list of stripped features, I’ve come back to Codemasters F1 series with a sense caution. Turns out I needn’t have worried, though, because in my eyes this is the best the series has been so far, delivering superb handling and a polished experience that suggests Codemasters learned their lessons from last year. Furthermore, they geeked out, tossing in safety cars, formation laps and manual launches off the starting line. Talk about compensating, eh?
King of Tokyo might just be one of the very best games I’ve ever played for showing non-gamers just how much fun games can be. In it you’ll take control of one of six awesome monsters in a bid to score 20 points before your friends by rolling dice and wrecking Tokyo city in a pleasing homage to the Kaiju genre of movies. It’s fast, easy to play and hugely entertaining. Plus, space penguin. Yup.
We Happy Few takes its cues from the novels like 1984 and Brave New World. This isn’t a criticism; both books are wonderful reads and you owe it to yourself to sit down and begin turning those pages. Currently in Early Access you step into the shoes of Arthur, a man who works in a building where they censor articles to ensure that nothing bad seems to be happening. You see, sometime during World War II the Germans successfully invaded Britain, and to repel those invaders something so horrible was done that the entire population ended up taking a drug called Joy which makes everything seem…wonderful. It also has the rather lovely effect of making them forget things. People wear strange white masks with permanent smiles, and while on Joy they have a spring in their step and a friendly greeting for everyone. Joy alters their perception of the world, as evidenced when Arthur is pressured into hitting what a group of people see as a pinata, but is actually the corpse of a rat which they proceed to consume, believing it to be delicious candy. IN reality Britain is a mess, with huge swathes of it eating horrid, rotten food and barely surviving. It’s a fascinating world with a heavy atmosphere that feels unique within the world of videgames, although I’m sure someone will hastily correct me. People amble around with creepy white masks on, jumping up and down in puddles and going about their lives with such eery cheerfulness. Damn it, people, this is the UK. People aren’t cheerful here.
The media loves to paint gamers as a bunch of mindless zombies that despise each other and every other form of life in the planet. And at times it can almost be hard to argue with them. Back when I was a lad there was a sense of […]
