Oh, you know I’m gunna talk about this one.   A new adventure game, from the developers of OXENFREE? You think I’m gonna play this? Do bears shit in the woods? This was the first thing that greeted you in the ID@Xbox booth during EGX Rezzed, and Christ, was there…

Another roguelike? Oh, go on then.   Truth be told, I’ve been nursing most roguelikes and roguelites recently. Not because I’ve got this massive unique stash of them or anything, but because I truly think the hype for them has died down, and now we’ve reached this unbelievably tedious…

How is it that Bioshock doesn’t get ripped off mercilessly?   System Shock is one thing, but Bioshock has had the privilege of aging more gracefully, along with having a visual aesthetic and world that’s ripe for inspiration and tribute, and not just the infamous twist. Maybe it’s the…

Space shooters. They’re some of the earliest forms of video games, and while the genre’s grown and evolved a whole lot since Asteroids and Galaga, there’s always been a simplistic charm to them. No matter what kind of bells and whistles a developer’s thrown on to their space shooter, you’re still…
