Correcting my Game of the Year

Correcting my Game of the Year

When we wrote our Games of the Year pieces back last year, I wrote openly and honestly about the games that I had loved from last year. However, as is to be expected, I didn't play every game, let alone every AAA title, that was released last year. Since then though, I've had the chance to revisit a title which would have appeared at the top of my list - Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Goodbye Sanity, Hello Madness

Goodbye Sanity, Hello Madness

This week, Paste Magazine's Austin Walker wrote a fascinating article about sanity systems in games. You can find it here and it's well worth a few minutes of your time if you haven't read it already. Having dozens of urgent jobs to do this evening, I decided instead to take a few minutes to think about how I'd deal with portraying a slow, uncontrolled descent into madness if I were a AAA game developer.

Just a Thought – The Fallout: New Vegas GECK

Modding. It's the centre of many a PC gamer's universe and arguably the reason for the continual success of Bethesda's RPGs and Bohemia's ArmA series. It's the origin for games like DayZ and Red Orchestra, and it's the reason I still play games that are over ten years old.

Our Week In Games 2015 – Part Four

Our Week In Games 2015 – Part Four

As a married man, I hate Valentine's day. Actually, scratch that - as a sensible human being, I hate Valentine's day. For singles, it's a day of misery and loneliness and for couples, it's a high pressure event where you just cross your fingers and pray you get things right. In many ways, it's a roguelike. No reloads, no second chances and half the time you don't know the effect of the words until you say them.

Death Off The Cuff

Death Off The Cuff

"They all stare at you expectantly, like children waiting to be told a bedtime story. Who can blame them? You are, after all, Antoine Saint Germain, the great French detective. No criminal has ever been a match for you, and everybody is looking forward to a description of your brilliant deductions. There is just one small problem. One tiny detail that makes it different this time. A mere trifle, really. This time you have no idea who did it."

Grand Theft Auto V – The New-Gen Verdict

Grand Theft Auto V was one of the standout games from the end of the last console generation. It puts you in the shoes of three characters in the massive city of Los Santos and the surrounding areas. It was great and set all kinds of records for game launches. And now, the game has been rolled out onto the new-generation consoles.
