Death of the Outsider – The Verdict

Death of the Outsider – The Verdict

It was only at the beginning of September that I finally finished Dishonored 2, and now I have finished Death of the Outsider, the expandalone title which serves as a fitting post-script to the Corvo/Emily Kaldwin arc of the Dishonored story. Corvo and Emily have been the duo at the heart of the series from the start, while Daud and Billie Lurk have spread their wings in the expansions to the base games. With Dishonored 2 putting Corvo and Emily’s story to bed, Death of the…

F1 2017 – The Verdict

F1 2017 – The Verdict

I’ve been playing a bit of F1 2017 recently, mainly in between sessions of Destiny 2 or Dishonored 2, and it’s proving to be a splendid game, one where I’ve finally found a way to play, and enjoy, what is a great racer.

Destiny 2 – The Verdict

Destiny 2 – The Verdict

It’s strange to think it was three years ago when Steve and myself first shared Our Thoughts on Destiny the First, and two years since I decided that The Taken King had gone a long way towards tidying up some of the rough edges from the base game. Now, here we are and Destiny 2 is part of our world, and I love it. Bungie have learn from what made The Taken King so good, and created a wondrous game.

Behold The Kickmen – The Mini Verdict

Behold The Kickmen – The Mini Verdict

I’ve talked at length about Behold The Kickmen in the past, and it’s finally here! Well, available over on yonder Steam for the bargain basement price of £2.79! It’s a truly majestic little game that Dan Marshall has made, one that perfectly simulates the game of football*

DiRT 4 – The Verdict

DiRT 4 – The Verdict

Rally, one of the purest forms of motorsport. Man and machine against the road, a co-drivers hastily barked instructions all that keeps them from slipping off the road and out of the action. Codemasters reached near perfection with distilling the core rallying experience into a video game with DiRT Rally a few years ago. Now, they’re back with DiRT 4, a racing game with rally at its heart, but a different beast to the hardcore icon from 2015.

Tyranny – The Verdict

Tyranny – The Verdict

As with other Paradox games the writing and character development in Tyranny is of a very high standard. Rarely does it feel like you’re reading a piece of filler text but instead insightful and interesting dialogue and backstory, and taking part in decisions that literally shape the game and characters you are playing in and talking to.

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.

Dovetail Games Flight School – The Verdict

Dovetail Games Flight School – The Verdict

It’s been a few weeks since I delivered my first hands-on impressions of Dovetail Games Flight School, and now the game has been released, it’s about time I delivered a Verdict on it. Before you hit the ‘Read More’ button, please keep in mind that I am approaching this Verdict from the point of view of a casual sim-er.

Hearts of Iron IV – The Verdict

Hearts of Iron IV – The Verdict

January 1951, the world is in flames and has been in a state of near constant war and I have dropped more Nuke’s than I would like to admit. I think back to the early months of my adventure with Italy in Hearts of Iron IV, and I can’t help but wonder what might have been if I had made some different choices.

Valkyria Chronicles – The Verdict

Valkyria Chronicles – The Verdict

I’ve been playing Valkyria: Chronicles to give you our verdict on the recent PC release. So that’s what I did. So what do we have? Well it’s (really) bad port and has an anime style that while I have no issue with, doesn’t exactly get me excited either. Oh and OH SO MUCH EXPOSITION. Seriously, there’s a lot of talk about flowers. And goat poo. I’m not even making that up. Yet… I’ve grown, step by inexorable step, to love this game.
