this is madness, Chester!

Evening, all! It’s time for another discussion piece. We aim to do something a little different each time, and certainly we’ve not got much coverage of Japanese RPGs on this site in general. So today we’re looking exactly at just that sort of game, with Ys: The Oath in Felghana.

Discussion review: Mass Effect

Hi and welcome to the latest in our ongoing series of game discussions. This time we thought we’d try ourselves against a big-name, relatively recent title. If (like us) you live under a rock and don’t keep up with modern gaming, Mass Effect is an action-RPG from the prolific Bioware. It uses third-person cover-shooter type […]

Mangle WON’T succeed!

Hello everyone. We’ve got another discussion review for you today. If old platformers are your thing, take a look at Bio Menace. Might be a few more discussions yet, hopefully looking at a range of types of game. If you’d rather read a “proper” review then don’t worry, those will remain the main feature. The […]

All of this discussion

We had quite a bit of fun last year with our series of discussion reviews, looking back at games we’d previously covered over the years. Ideally we’d have liked to have done one or two more, but these things take time, and ultimately we considered that going back and re-playing games we’d already covered, and […]

Let’s play ball

Hello. We’ve got something a little bit new for you this evening – for the first time ever, Stoo and I have co-written a discussion review. The game in question is Hardball III – so be prepared to be hit with the combined force of our baseball knowledge. We’ve also posted a little explanation of […]

oh no! two ! is down! four! is down!

So I went and got Operation Flashpoint from Good Old Games, which may have been incredibly foolish. I bought it once already, the first time around nine-ish years ago. And I sucked. My attempts usually worked out as: 1: lie prone in cover 2: carefully line up shot against target silhouetted against sky 3: miss […]

I love Paris, in the fall

Hello. Our series of retrospective discussions continues, as Stoo, Jo and myself take a look back at Broken Sword. We hope you’re enjoying these, and hope to do more, but watch out for some brand-new reviews in the near future.

Bravery is not a function of firepower

Hello all. Because we like playing at features that proper professional gaming magazines and websites do, we’re continuing our series of discussion reviews. The idea is to revisit some of the games we’ve covered in the past 10 years, to celebrate this site lasting that long (hurrah for us). So far we’ve covered an ancient […]

The linesman has raised his…flag

Good evening. Tonight, as part of our 10-year anniversary-thing, we continue our look back over some of our favourite games, and reviews, of the past. This time, Stoo and I talk about Puma World Football. Hope you enjoy it – there’s more to come.

Happy birthday, to me

Hi there. Did you know that we’re 10 years old this year? Well, we are. No, don’t you worry about a present. We’ve got a few things planned. The first thing we’re going to try, though, is a series of discussions of some of our previously-reviewed games on the site, starting with 4D Sports: Driving […]
