Time To Upgrade The ‘Ol PC

Back in March of 2013 I put together my first gaming PC in a while, working with a budget so tight that the elite community of gamers would giggle like school girls as they caressed their GTX Titans. Still, tight budget or not it has done rather well over the past year, giving me access to plenty of awesome games along the way, but about a month ago the sudden urge to do some upgrades took hold of me. This highlights one of the great things about a PC: if you’ve got some spare cash then you can upgrade the machine to further enhance your experience. I didn’t need to do it, because as budget as my previous build was it could have kept playing games for a little while to come, but I did it because it was something I wanted, a treat to myself. It’s also handy for this website, as it means I can stay on top of the PC titles, at least for the time being.

Light Review – One Foot Still In The Shadows

Usually I like to begin reviews by talking about the game’s narrative, as I find that sets up the rest of the review nicely, providing context for just about everything else. But with Light what really needs to be tackled first are the graphics. The game is presented with a minimal style. As the player you tackle the entire game from a top-down view, with your avatar shown as a simple cube attempting to navigate a world of glowing walls and red enemy squares. Like the name implies, it’s a world made of light. As with any art-style that doesn’t conform to the norm it’s not going to be to everyone’s taste, but to me the game has a nice, simple, sleek look that’s pleasing to the eye.
