Weekend Whammy: I’m Back, Baby! & Ubisoft Are Being Dicks

Hello my beloved friends and enemies, I’m sorry about my radio silence for the past few weeks! I did mean to write a Weekend Whammy two weekends back but I fell into a bit of a slump as my depression reared its horrifying head again and I couldn’t get myself into the mood to write much of anything. I’ve thumped it with a stick a few times though, and reckon all is well again. Or at least, I thumped something with a stick and it stopped moving, so…

Greedfall Review – Are Spiders The New BioWare?

Spiders are an interesting little company who have been consistently putting out RPGs that feel inspired by classic BioWare yet have never managed to completely nail their visions. Their last game was The Technomancer (review HERE) in 2016 which had some great ideas but clumsy execution. Now Spiders are back with Greedfall which has gotten a good amount of attention leading up to its release. So does their latest RPG finally level Spiders up?

Untitled Goose Game Review – Goosing Around

It’s an undeniable fact of life that geese are colossal arseholes. They waddle around with an uncaring swagger, aggressively assault any living being that isn’t another goose and generally just act like douchebags. The cleverly titled Untitled Goose Game lets you be a goose and wreak havoc upon an idyllic little town filled with people just going about their days. Little do they know what awaits them in this absolutely fantastic little indie game.

Borderlands 3 Review – More Borderlands, More Loot

It was 2012 when the last proper Borderlands game was launched, and during that time Gearbox Software seemed to think that they didn’t need to make another game in the franchise. And yet here we are some seven years later with Borderlands 3 having finally become a reality. There’s a lot of hype about this one and for good reason: like it did with so many other people Borderlands 2 sucked me into its looting and shooting and over the course of the seven years I’ve completed the game numerous times over. I’ve hunted down the rarest gear, shot the biggest enemies and consistently laughed at Handsome Jack’s antics.

Gears 5 Review – Gears of War Is Back, Baby!

The Xbox has been hurting when it comes to exclusive games while the Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch have been busy putting out strong titles that could only be played on their respective platforms. Gears of War 4 should have been the return of one of Xbox’s biggest franchises, but The Coalition were put in a difficult position having to take over something with such a strong legacy. What they created was good. It wasn’t great, though. It didn’t match the original trilogy. Now The Coalition are back and they’ve tossed away the “of War” part. Gears 5 is looking to bring the series back properly.

Decay of Logos Review – Decaying

Although it’s a massive cliche to say so, playing Decay of Logos was a rollercoaster ride of emotions. The thing about a rollercoaster, though, is that you have to go up as much as you go down. Things must balance out. Decay of Logos, however, was like a rollercoaster that somehow defied the very laws of physics by having a lot more down than it did up. It’s easily the most annoying and downright infuriating game I’ve played this year. At one point I spent nearly 30-minutes yelling at an Elk, calling it all sorts of horrific names. I finished the game eventually, but I’m not sure if it was worth it.
