• I can’t even art. I wouldn’t know an art if it arted in my general direction.

    But I know how to get started with arting. It’s with these videos by my pal Paul Scott Canavan. Paul is art director at Blazing Griffin and a prolific freelance illustrator who is as keen on teaching and sharing knowledge as he is on creating amazing work.

  • “Who the fuck is this Zoe Quinn? What is it that she has supposedly done and why the hell should I even care?”

    That’s what one of my friends asked me yesterday on FaceBook. Where to start? How could I explain without making my friend get as depressed as I already was? Should I send her a link to the Reddit page where literally hundreds of…[Read more]

  • ThumbnailNippon Ichi is a genius. I might sound like I don’t like the Disgaea series in this review, but I respect the utter insanity of the games, and it’s eccentric creator is a genuine auteur. Disgaea 4 is more strange, […]

  • Charlotte Brewster has flipped and flopped. Have you?

  • PurePool4Tam Eley tells us quite a lot about his private habits in this Pure Pool Review.

    Pool, the game played by students en-mass as they ignore deadlines and enjoy a few pints and have a laugh. The sport you grow too serious about as you start to win, or even when you just can’t seem to get any shot working for you. Well now you can enjoy this…[Read more]

  • CryptoftheNecrodancer (1)Uhn Tiss Uhn Tiss Uhn Tiss. When the beat kicks in during your first play session of Crypt of the NecroDancer, it seems like the most natural thing in the world. Moving your little dungeon crawling sprite in time with the music instinctively feels good. It makes sense. It makes you wonder why no one has made a rhythm-action dungeon crawling RPG…[Read more]

The reason why a no hitter is so rare would be the…[Read more]

  • Velvet Sundown is like one of those murder mystery parties, but in a virtual world. You wander around a yacht (the titular Velvet Sundown) with a bunch of rich wankers, trying to steal corporate secrets or get people to join your religious cult. Here’s how my first game went.

    I was Malik, an undercover corporate spy-man who wanted to use his…[Read more]

  • Shadows: Heretic Kingdoms is a game that’s recently came out in open alpha stage on Steam. It’s one of those really shiny looking Action RPGs that everyone loves to call Diablo clones.

  • I’m pretty sure you’ve never played a game like Unrest before. I’ve certainly never played anything like it. Yes, it’s got an inventory and a map and a journal and many other tropes of a conventional RPG, but while a lot of this game feels familiar, a lot more feels unique and original. The setting, the characters, the art and the music blend…[Read more]

  • Alasdair Bachell swings his shovel retro style

    I’ve never owned a NES, or even a SNES. In fact no “Golden Age” gaming console has ever been in my household; I was a PC gaming child, and my first console was a PS1. The greatest crime?
