Review: Kick Off 3: European Challenge

Hi there everyone. Hope you’re doing okay. Today’s review is Kick Off 3: European Challenge from Anco. We’ve got a few video clips from the game too. And, as ever, a new football game review also means a change to the standings in the FFG Football League.

Review: NBA Jam: Tournament Edition

Hello. Hope you’re all doing well, or hanging in there, at least. Like many others, I recently watched and enjoyed The Last Dance on Netflix. I don’t know much about basketball, or US sports in general, but like all the best documentaries, I don’t think that’s necessary in order to enjoy it. Anyway, it of course stirred […]

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 […]

Review: Quarantine II: Road Warrior

Hi everyone. Hope you’re doing ok. I hope today’s review doesn’t seem in poor taste, considering the current situation: I can promise any link between the decision to cover it and the real-life global pandemic is purely coincidental. As any regular readers will know, we move far too slowly these days for anything to be topical, […]

Review: International Cricket Captain III

Hello there. I’ll say it again: I do hope you’re all keeping safe and well at the moment. In search of something calm and gentle, I decided to turn to cricket, and so today’s review is of a mid-to-late 00s entry in Empire’s long-running cricket management series: International Cricket Captain III.

Review: Colin McRae Rally 3

Hello. Hope you’re all keeping well, under the circumstances. At times like these we might find ourselves trying to go to our respective happy places, trying to find ways to relax or escape, whenever possible, and games can certainly help with that. In my case, I think playing endless racing games from the 00s and […]

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.

20(-ish) years of the PS2

I’ve seen a few people mention that this week was the 20th anniversary of the PlayStation 2, which seemed a little early to me (this week was also the 20th anniversary of my wife and I getting together, and the two didn’t seem to quite add up) until I realised it was a reference to […]

Review: Jazz Jackrabbit

Hi there. We’re going back to 1994 for some DOS-based platforming action today in our review of Jazz Jackrabbit.
