2018 continues to roll onward to its grand finale like a runaway child on a sled down a steep hill, so now that we’re just past the half-way point and are all just starting to realise that Christmas is somehow not that far away again it seems like a good time to check out the best games of the year thus far.
Now, do keep in mind that I currently game on Xbox One and PC, which means a very notable game in which “BOY!” is yelled and uttered a lot won’t be making an appearence on this list. Sorry, Playstation fans, I’m annoyed I missed it too, but money is limited and consoles are expensive.
Oh, and it goes without saying that I need to have actually played it. I’m one person, I can’t play everything. I try, though. I really, really try.
John “TotalBiscuit” Bain has passed away age just 33 following a long battle with cancer. The news hit last night, just a month after he announced on Reddit that he was stepping down as a games critic and that all treatment options had finally been exhausted.
So, I don’t usually do updates like this but I just wanted to let you all know what is currently going on in the world of Wolf. Simply put, my computer is currently dead.
Last week it started acting up and then died completely. I won’t bore you with the symptoms, but suffice to say I went through a lot of potential solutions and then eventually stripped it down part by part in order to locate the fault. I narrowed it down to being either the motherboard, a MSI X370 Titanium, or the Ryzen 5 1600 CPU. Both aren’t even a year old, and neither is even fully paid for yet. I’m pretty sure it’s the motherboard at fault, although I can’t be completely certain. I think it’s the more likely option, though.

You hit the button on your controller and a split second later your on-screen character pulls the trigger, but it’s too late. You’re beaten. All that work, all that effort, only to be defeated because of one thing; input

Two years ago I attended by first MCM Comic-Con event in Glasgow, Scotland, and dutifully wrote down my experience on this very site. So I’m pleased to say that MCM have invited me back, arming my sorry hide with a press pass and giving me free reign to annoy the poor public by taking pictures of them in embarrassing situations. Good stuff.
The seething mass of bodies all packed into one place is a stark reminder of just how big games have become since I was but a lad in the ’90s where it was still seen, along with comics, as a geeky hobby. Now it seems everyone plays games, either casually on a phone or tablet for a few minutes a day or on a custom PC that costs a terrifying amount of money. Games are just part of everyday life now, and conventions are springing up all over the place. Now there are people from all walks of life celebrating a medium that has gone from strength to strength. Walking the concrete floors are kids, teenagers, moms, dads, businessmen, grandfathers, grandmothers and more. There are no barriers now that games have gotten almost complete mainstream acceptance, and it’s amazing to see.
Last year I covered 4 The Gamers, their very first event held in Aberdeen, Scotland. It was a two-day event brimming with people, indie developers, Youtube guests, VR demonstrations and much more! Considering it was only the first year the turnout was massive with thousands of eager fans […]
