In the inaugural Patch Notes – a simple series where I cover some of the news of the week and offer my views – we chat about the new Oculus Rift announcement and the future of VR, as well as Google’s new game streaming service, Google Stadia. Oh, and there’s the whole Steam vs Epic thing.
Just a quick message to wish you all a fantastic Christmas/holidays. I hope you have a brilliant day full of fun and happiness, whether you’re just chilling at home with some games and movies or getting together with the whole family.

Welcome, my dear readers, to the top 10 games of 2018, spanning Xbox One, PS4 and PC. This is the year I’ll always remember as the time EA declared that nobody was interested in single player games anymore. It was a stupid thing to say at the time, but a slew of fantastic single player games has made EA look even more absurd. Indeed, all round it has been a superb year for games regardless of the platform you play on.
God damn, weekend, you have to stop sneaking up on me like this!
Yup, the weekend is here yet again, thundering into our lives like a rhino that’s desperate for a Mars Bar. Why would a Rhino be desperate for a Mars Bar? I dunno. Just go with it.
The weekend has arrived yet again with all the momentum of a fat person rolling down a hill, and that means it’s time to play games, watch movies, eat junk-food and generally celebrate being alive!
The weekend has arrived like a cartoon anvil being dropped on your head by a sneaky Wile E. Coyote, and as always that means it’s time for game, movies, books and other awesome stuff!
The weekend has once again arrived like an apple being hurled at a doctor to make them away, and that means it’s time for GAMES! and movies.
So, lately, I’ve been hammering some hours into Shadow of the Tomb Raider, the final game in the trilogy that I’ve thus far really loved. It’s going to be a tricky one to review, but in essence, I think it’s a good game, but it’s also somewhat unexciting in the sense that very little has changed since Rise of the Tomb Raider. I wish the series could have gone out with more of a bang rather than a whimper.
The weekend has steamrolled into our lives yet again like some sort of demented rhino looking for its lunch. As I write this I’ve just gotten back from walking the dog and taking my two nieces to the funfair that’s in town, so now it’s time to sit down and fire up some games!
Oh boy, oh boy, it’s the freakin’ weekend again people! And you know what that means! It’s time to break out the beers and wallow in self-pity! YEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!
This week I’ve been delving hard into Monster Hunter World now that it has come to PC, a game in which you kill monsters, make a sword out of their bones and then proceed to beat the same kind of monster to death with the remains of brother/sister/mother/father/cousin/whatever. Honestly, the more you think about this game and it’s never ending parade of boss fights the more you realise that you play as a complete dick intent on single-handedly wiping out the innocent beasts inhabiting the land.
I was going to start up this series last weekend, but I wound up getting gifted some tickets to go see one of my favorite bands, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, in Glasgow. It was awesome. That’s all. Just thought you should know.
Anyway, the point here is that while I’m beyond privelaged to get loads of viewers on this site I’d love to see more comments and chances to chat to people, so I’m hoping this will encourage some folks to jump on and start chatting.
