Discussion: The Vanishing of Ethan Carter (spoilers!)

Hello there. Today we’re continuing our series of discussions of more modern indie titles. They’re not traditional reviews, as such, and we go into some detail about the specifics of the story of each, and so they’re heavily flagged for spoilers. Previously, Jo and I have talked about the FMV mystery Her Story and the […]

Discussion: Gone Home (spoilers!)

Hello. Hope you’re all keeping safe. Regular readers, if any exist, may recall that last year we exhumed our discussion format in order to take a look at a modern indie title, Her Story. (Caution: there are spoilers ahead in that link!) Well, I’m back, along with FFG’s unofficial third correspondent, Jo, in a belated […]

Review: Alpha Protocol

Hi there. Strange times, huh? Hope you’re all keeping safe. Well anyway, we keep plugging away with new content, and in today’s review I return to Obsidian’s ‘Espionage RPG’ Alpha Protocol.

Review: Test Drive Unlimited 2

Hello! I hope you’re all well. Somehow it’s December already – I know, right? Well, to take your mind off the cold and dark winter season, here’s a review of a game about hanging around in sunnier climes: it’s Test Drive Unlimited 2.

Discussion: Her Story (spoilers!)

Hello. Today we’re reviving our once semi-regular discussion format to take a look at a relatively modern title. For this purpose we welcome back to FFG, after a number of years away, our sometime contributor and unofficial third member, Jo. The game we’re discussing is Her Story, released in 2015. Unusually for a modern game, […]

Review: A Golden Wake

Hi there. Here’s a funny thing: I usually feel bad if we go a while without posting a review. Now I feel bad that it’s been a few reviews in a row. Basically, I just feel bad about everything all the time. Today we’re looking at a comparatively modern adventure: A Golden Wake.

Review: Broken Sword 5: The Serpent’s Curse

Hi there. Hope you’re having a good summer. The rusty old reviewing machine cranks into life again, as we take a look at the latest in the Broken Sword series, The Serpent’s Curse.

Review: Need for Speed: The Run

Hi there. Sorry for the radio silence over the last few weeks: I’ve had a few pieces lying around in a nearly-finished state for a while, but other things have been getting in the way. So, what’s more boring than someone making excuses for not updating their website? How about 2500 words or so on […]

Review: The Blackwell Epiphany

Hi there. As you may know, we’ve been covering Wadjet Eye’s Blackwell games over the last few months or so. Although this final chapter was released as recently as 2014, we didn’t want to delay our review because of our own entirely self-defined and arbitrary rules on how old games need to be to qualify […]

Review: The Blackwell Deception

Hi there. Tonight we continue our look at the Blackwell series, with a review of the fourth game: The Blackwell Deception. There’s a possibility of one or two more bits and pieces before 2018 is over. But these things often take longer than we might like. Wishing you all the very best for Christmas and […]
