Our Year in Games 2016 – Chris (Part Two)

Our Year in Games 2016 – Chris (Part Two)

  Hello, and welcome to part two of my contribution to Our Year in Games 2016. I’m continuing my tale of my year in games by talking about another selection of games that weren’t necessarily released in 2016. I have played new games this year, honest! But a lot of older games have played some part in shaping my year in games. Here’s four of them.

Our Year in Games 2016 – Chris (Part One)

Our Year in Games 2016 – Chris (Part One)

Welcome to Our Year in Games coming at you from Reticule Towers. I realise that we didn’t do any sort of yearly roundup for 2015, but we’re making up for it this year. I’ve invited a few old faces to take part in Our Year in Games, so hopefully you won’t just have me for company! I’m probably going to split my tales across a few entries to cover the games from previous years that I’ve been playing this year…

Drive!Drive!Drive! – The Verdict

Drive!Drive!Drive! – The Verdict

There are so many indie racers that one needs to do something different to get my attention. It can be bringing back an old school type of racing (Mantis Burn’s top down style), or offer something more special. Drive!Drive!Drive! or Drive³ as it is colloquially known by developer Gordon Midwood from different cloth has that something special.

Five for Five – Hevn

Five for Five – Hevn

There’s occasionally a moment when you play a preview build of a game where the demo ends, and you’re just left standing there thinking “But I wanted to carry on playing for the rest of the day!”. That’s exactly how I felt after playing the preview build for Hevn, an immersive, story-driven sci-fi adventure from developers MIGA.

Welcome to the second week of our Five for Five feature.

Political Animals – The Verdict

Political Animals – The Verdict

In these times when every newspaper headline fills me with dread, I’m pleased to report that there is some good news out there. Political Animals is here to wash away your disappointment, anger and frustration by letting you take control of an election campaign…with animals!

Football Manager 2017 – The Verdict

Football Manager 2017 – The Verdict

The Football Manager series is one that suffers a similar fate to FIFA and PES, people will buy the game and soon start moaning that nothing has changed year on year apart from a roster update. I don’t feel like that about Football Manager 2017, I feel generally quite positive about it.

Battlefield 1 – The (singleplayer) Verdict

Battlefield 1 – The (singleplayer) Verdict

When EA first announced Battlefield 1, I had concerns over how they were portraying the Great War. I wasn’t the only one who expressed misgivings, and others have put forth their opinion in the past week. But having played through the singleplayer War Stories, I think DICE have paid the events of 1914-1918 the respect they deserve.

Mantis Burn Racing – The Verdict

Mantis Burn Racing – The Verdict

A few weeks ago at EGX, I was able to check out Mantis Burn Racing from VooFoo Studios. A top-down arcade racer, it immediately caught my attention on my first day at the show and I’ve been throwing my tiny cars around on the PlayStation 4 since launch. This is my Verdict.

EGX 2016 – Day One Report

As another September draws near an end, I make my annual pilgrimage to the Eurogamer Expo, or EGX as they like to call it these days. I’ve travelled to London in the past, and more recently, have made my way to the NEC in Birmingham. For this year’s edition of the show, I am present for two day’s, and right here, right now in Birmingham, England *cheap pop*, I am delivering my Day One Report. Read on…
