The new year isn’t so new anymore and we resume our normal Our Week in Games service. Read on for your weekly helping of OWIGs…
Welcome to the second (and final) part of Our Year Ahead in Games – 2015 where we take a look at what we are looking forward to from 2015. Hit the break to find out what we are waiting for.
Christmas has been and gone and we are now in the early weeks of 2015 and we here at Reticule Towers are ready to bring you some thoughts on what we are looking forward to in the year ahead.
Had your turkey yet? Waiting for your turkey? Either way, if you aren’t busy eating on this Christmas Day, take a peak at Our Games of the Year here at Reticule Towers…
As we roll ever closer to Christmas, we have one last edition of Our Year in Games to share with you before we bring you Our Games of the Year on Christmas Day. If you’re reading that on Christmas Day, then you don’t have enough Christmas dinner to eat. With that, let us move on with Our Year in Games…
As we trundle ever closer to Christmas, it is of course time for another edition of Our Year in Games here at Reticule Towers. Read on to see what other tales from our past year we have to share.
Last week we kicked off a review of our last year in games, and today we kick on with part two. Hit the break to see what other thoughts we have from the last year in games…
Welcome to Part One of Our Year in Games here at Reticule Towers. For the next four Sundays, we will be sharing memories and thoughts on what has transpired in our past gaming year. We aren’t limiting ourselves to talking about games released this year, anything goes. Have no fear though, we will be taking a look at Our Games of the Year at Christmas, though I doubt we will come away with a definitive verdict.
It’s that time of year when the big blockbusters launch ready for Christmas. I’m talking about games like Call of Duty and Assassin’s Creed…sadly though, we will only be covering one of those games in the coming weeks. We weren’t able to secure review code for Unity or Rogue here at The Reticule, so unless one of the team can afford to dig deep, they’ll be on the back burner. In brighter news, I’ll be having first thoughts on Advanced Warfare soon, while Kevin will be taking a crack at Dragon Age: Inquisition on the Xbox One.
With those few updates out of the way, let us get on with Our Week in Games.
There are some fantastic first-party games on the Wii U, but what is less talked about is the growing, and fantastic, range of indie titles that are available through the eShop. Steal Inc 2: A Game of Clones from Curve Digital (the guys who did Iron Fisticle) is just one of those games.
The Wii U Gamepad: Love it or hate it, at least you’re sure when you’re supposed to be using it.
Our Week in Games has reached the 100th normal edition (not counting crazy Christmas or E3 ones), so we decided to share some thoughts on what this Sunday adventure that we call OWIG means to us and what our highlights from the past editions has been. The first edition was way back in July 2012, and I for one am just happy that we have kept this going all this time. On to another 100!
Wow. Well we get sent things, and I wasn’t even aware that this title was coming (ostensibly as it’s currently Wii U only), but my word does it look fun. Stealth Inc 2: a Game of Clones (see what they did there) is a metroidvania-style platform puzzler with open (2d) world aspects that make it an entirely intriguing prospect. It’s also utterly gorgeous.
Day three at the Eurogamer Expo has been my last for the year. A visit to Progress Wrestling is due tomorrow and occasionally some things take importance over games. Shocking I know!
Day one of my experience at the Eurogamer Expo is in the bag, and it has been something of a long day. I was on a bus from my flat at 10am to the city centre to get a National Express coach at 11am over to London. On arrival in London I took a walk to my hotel and was checked in by 2.30pm and walked into Earl’s Court for my first day at the show.
