moments in gaming: fus roh dah

I always feel bad about displacing proper content with blog stuff, but also once I have something drafted I want it out the door so as not to gnaw at my mind. So please, valued visitor, before reading this: scroll down and read Rik’s review of Wacky Wheels. Or click this link. Man, it makes […]

It only takes one match

Hi there. Football, football, football – when will it ever end? Well, in today’s review, we do have an ending, of sorts, as far as this particular series goes. Here’s a look back at Pro Evolution Soccer 2010.

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.

Hoping that I’ll be a part of you again someday

Hello everyone. It seems like a lot has happened since I was last here. 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.
