Spooktober 2018 Entry #8 – Previous Entry: Knee Deep // Next Entry: Sheltered   It only took eight days to mention zombies.   The original How To Survive is an underrated gem if you ask me. It was a small title that came out just before the massive zombie craze died…

**SPOILER WARNING: Some story elements of Life is Strange 2 do get discussed for critique here. If you’re interested in Life is Strange 2 and have yet to know anything about it yet, then… I dunno, read the last paragraph or something.**   The, err, first Life is Strange? NOT GOOD.   Alright fine, it…

Spooktober 2018 Entry #7 – Previous Entry: Shadows of The Damned (Throwback Review) // Next Entry: How to Survive 2   Have you ever watched Mulholland Drive?    You know that bit in the theatre, where Naomi Watts and Laura Elena Harring are watching the woman sing Roy Orbison’s “Crying”…

Spooktober Entry #4 – Previous Entry: The Long Reach // Next Entry: Indie Investigation, Vol. 666   Pfft. Don’t you hate progress?   I was going to include this on the Indie Investigation, Vol. 666 article that’ll happen tomorrow, but after mulling it over several times, I think this…

Spooktober 2018 Entry #3 // Previous Entry: Rise of Insanity // Next Entry: Indie Investigation Vol. 666   Alright, I don’t recommend films much, but here’s one: The Signal.    It’s a 2007 anthology film, with three different parts directed by three different people. A signal infects the entirety of…

Spooktober 2018 Entry #2 // Previous Entry: Darkest Dungeon // Next Entry: The Long Reach   I mentioned yesterday how Darkest Dungeon was pushing a new form of horror.   I do mean it, as indie developers have a better understanding of what people are spooked by, generally due…

Spooktober 2018 Entry #1 – Next Entry: Rise of Insanity   It’s back, baby. Grab your skeletons – October is upon us.   Yes, it’s the season we all know and love, unless you’re 40 years old and can’t stand kids. The pre-Christmas rush can be seen on the…

Forza Horizon 4:…

1291
It’s the start of Horizon Festival on a brisk fall day. Everyone has brought their hottest rides for the race through the Edinburgh city streets. You’re sitting in your brand-new 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS at the front of the line, heart racing as adrenaline is rushing through your…

Bad North Review…

Vikings are pretty badass.   In the brief moment of time they were around, they were– and still are– a symbol of raw human strength, with their male and female counterparts being these foolhardy machines of death and fun. Fortunately, you get to see their human sides as well,…

Anodyne Review –…

Y’know what, we need more meta games.   I’m not talking about games where the writers will act like smug jackasses by breaking the fourth wall once every two or three lines, but ones that address the player in a more confronting tone. Stuff like Spec Ops: The Line, Desert…
