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. But recently I’ve found it difficult to find a footy game I can get on with. Not since PES 2008 (which. depending on your point of […]

75 tons of lasers and stomping

Gigantic bipedal robotic war machines are a fairly ridiculous idea, yet one that has much popularity in scifi. I suppose simply because they mix the mechanical with the humanoid, like some kind of massive armoured warrior with guns for arms, unleashing more firepower than the Red Army and casually treading on cars, houses and people. […]

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. 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.

You’re not hardcore, unless you live hardcore

Those who remember previous iterations of FFG may recall that our list of reviews used to come with a brief introduction. I thought it was quite a good feature, but by God did it cause me some trouble. After tapping out a review with relative ease, the prospect of coming up with some kind of […]

You used to be that crazy guy, Jeremy

Hi there. Following memories of DOS-based flight sims and dreadful old football games, we return to the modern era for some slow-motion shooting action in today’s review of Stranglehold.

speak quickly, Outlander

A couple of years back I talked about the Morrowind Overhaul, a huge bundle package of graphics upgrades for the third Elder Scrolls title. That’s one way to modernise an RPG that’s now over a decade old. Another approach is to recreate all of its content as a total conversion for one of its own […]
