Review – Middle-Earth: Shadow of War

The Lord of the Rings games were some of the most cherished games for people growing up in the mid 2000s, logging many many hours on games – that while have aged poorly, we remember them fondly and had a lot of fun with friends playing them back in the day. So in 2009, when EA’s license expired, I was curious to see what would happen to the Lord of Rings games, especially as it had been 6 years since the last Lord of the Rings film and by this point they couldn’t keep re-using the films material and...

Review – Dishonored 2: Death of the Outsider

Death of the Outsider goes the way of the void Dishonored is one of my favourite games ever made. It was a proper stealth game that was about getting from place to place without being seen and using the environment to your advantage. Jumping down and choking a guard out, then disappearing a second later with the knocked out guard, just to watch his friend question what was going on made you feel like a true shadow. What made the game truly immersive was the lore in the game. Dunwall was an amazing city, the steampunk aesthetic of the...

Review – Maize

Someone made a game about talking corn… Maize is one of the most abstract and absurd games I’ve ever played. The sheer wackiness and creativity put into this game verges on something a child would’ve wrote in primary school, that a parent found then decided to develop into a fully fledged adventure game.  The game is about talking sentient corn, a farm, an underground facility, and a unnamed character who must uncover the mystery of the talking corn. It sounds totally insane, but I surprised at how much I actually enjoyed this game. It’s got a balance of adventure,...

Sonic Mania Review

The true sequel after 23 years of waiting, and totally worth it It’s no secret that Sonics transition into the 3D world wasn’t the rousing success that his rival Mario had. While Mario enjoyed a plethora of games in the 3D world with a constant high rating, Sonics games have always been mediocre at best, and then recently Sonic Boom and the Rise of Lyric drove the entire franchise into the ground that even Sonics most loyal fans couldn’t defend. I’ve always been a Sonic fan, but even I know that the series has not fared well in the...

Review – Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun

Shadows Tactics: Blades of the Shogun is a type of game I haven’t seen for a long time. It’s a stealth game where you control several specialists with distinct skills to complete an objective, all taken from a top down isometric point of view. I thought these types of games died in the early 2000s and we’d all moved to first / third person stealth games like Dishonored and Hitman, but apparently they’re still wanted, and I’m all for this. It’s good to see tactical stealth games that require stealth, and not just ‘stealth but only if you feel...
