Astro Bot – initial impressions

If you have had the chance to play The Playroom VR you will probably have seen the little robots that populate all the games in the demo, after providing an initial draw in the strange Playstation curio the Playroom, the ''game'' that came with the PlayStation camera, the little bots have moved on from camera … Continue reading Astro Bot – initial impressions

Sometimes the World almost agrees with you. Naughty Nintendo

Trawling through my local video game shops today, I noticed a distinct lack of Nintendo Switch games available to buy in fact in two of the shops I visited today neither had any Switch games for sale at all. I wonder if it's just that the games are just not selling and there is no … Continue reading Sometimes the World almost agrees with you. Naughty Nintendo

I lost an argument

Do graphics matter? That the question put to me this afternoon. I was trying to persuade a friend to finally upgrade his PS3 and to move onto a nice shiny PS4. He wouldn't have it. I don't need to he said, I don't want to he said. I tried to convince him otherwise, I lead … Continue reading I lost an argument

Wolfenstein: The New Colossus

Or how it should be titled: Come for the guns but stay for the conversation. You see Wolfenstein 11(thanks Wikipedia) isn't a bad, in fact it's a very good game and rightly fully deserves its place on the many, many game of the year. It's just not a very good shooter: The guns feel light … Continue reading Wolfenstein: The New Colossus

Star Wars

Slightly disappointed by the Star Wars Battlefront II beta was I. Sorry, no more Yoda speak. The beta was less than great though. Wasn't it? It had all the photographic brilliance of the most recent of the Battlefront games but none of the excellent game play that made the original games such a joy to … Continue reading Star Wars

Oxenfree

As part of my Halloween for babies experiment, where I have tried to play through three of the least scary games in my backlog which are: Inside, Dead Rising 3 and Oxenfree. All three have a horror theme but, are not too long nor too scary for me to play through, without running away hiding … Continue reading Oxenfree
