Archives for Newer games

Through faith, your afflictions are banished

Hi there. It’s been a bit quiet on the reviews front recently, but I’ve been quietly chugging my way through this one for a while. Some 10 years after Stoo speculated that I might one day play an Elder Scrolls game, we have a look at The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.

Great feet for a big lad

Hi there. We’re at the newer end of what’s permissible on this site today, with a review of the retro-flavoured indie football game from 2011, New Star Soccer 5.

Every lie takes you deeper

Hi there, Today’s review takes us back to the Need for Speed series, with 2008’s instalment, Undercover.

I felt a little like a dying clown, with a streak of rin tin tin

Hi there. Happy New Year to you all. Hope you had a good Christmas. Today’s review is of the last of Telltale’s attempts to make a decent CSI game: Fatal Conspiracy.

It’s in the game

I like football games, possibly more than I actually like football. A couple of matches in the evening after work during the week is one of life’s simple pleasures.

75 tons of lasers and stomping

I’m glad Stoo posted something about the System Shock remake because seeing the naive pre-tournament excitement of my football-based post at the top of the page was sort of making me feel sick. There was some other big news related to […]

In the late 22nd century, mankind took to the stars, to see what wonders the heavens offered

Hello everyone. Regular readers – if they, indeed, exist – will know that in recent years I’ve stuck quite closely to my comfort areas: namely, old football and racing games. Occasionally, I do get the taste for something a bit different, although often my attempts are thwarted by my own ineptitude and/or lack of patience. […]

Returning to the past in World of Warcraft

Via RPS: Blizzard On Vanilla WoW Servers I’ve occasionally considered talking about World of Warcraft here; it was released in the tail end of 2004 which does makes it older than some of the other games we’ve reviewed. It felt a bit wrong to speak of it as an actual old game, though, given how […]

But oh, oh, those Hot Import Nights

Good evening. Today we have another one of those street-racing games for you, a sequel to one we covered a while ago (and quite liked). It’s Juiced 2: Hot Import Nights.
