Frostpunk wasn’t just a great strategy game that demanded all of your concentration, it was also an interesting journey down the rabbit hole of good intentions. As you attempted to supply enough coal to keep a massive generator running to supply heat to your population the pressure made it all too easy to begin taking desperate measures: recycling corpses, child labour, propaganda and controlled religion are all tools that can be used to keep your society running. It was a game that fascinated me, so much so that I gave it a glowing review and a place in my top games of 2018.
Needless to say there were a lot of people pretty unhappy with the £40 season pass for Star Wars: Battlefront that will include four expansion packs and 16 maps, especially since the game itself feels very content starved in terms of its battlefield, as I commented on in […]

IO Interactive’s new Hitman game, which will launch in March 2016, has already created a lot of confusion and controversey. The developers announced that rather than releasing the full game they’ll instead put out a chunk of the game to begin with, and will then gradually add more […]

The Star Wars: Battlefront reboot by EA and DICE is already courting considerable controversay over a perceived lack of content. Indeed, even I tackled the subject while also enjoying replaying the classic Star Wars: Battlefront II. But one of the biggest gripes has been the lack of space […]
Nostalgia is a very dangerous thing. As pretentious as it sounds I’ve always prided myself on being able to combat nostalgia, to know that it clouds vision and that my wonderful memories are just that; memories, carefully selected by my own mind which blanks everything else. I pride […]
Another day another season pass. That Batman: Arkham Knight will indeed have a season pass is hardly surprising news, but what is surprising is that said pass will set you back a whopping £32.99. Let’s keep in mind that when Arkham Knight launches you should be able to […]
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.
