A short writing update

That Broken Punk Metaphor art

A quick update on some of my writing for other venues.

Arcadian Rhythms goes live

So! The project I have spent the last few months and especially January working on has gone live and the first content is beginning to appear. Check it out! One thing the internet does not need is another gaming blog. So, here is another gaming blog! We like to play games. We like to drink […]

DeTweet (Flash game)

I suspect that almost everyone reading this has, at some point in their lives, played a tower defence game. They’ve become hugely widespread, especially online, and they’re the ideal sort of game to play during a lunchbreak at work or when killing time on a laptop – being fun and immediately accessible. The problem is […]

Time Fcuk (PC/web/Flash)

Time Fcuk, aka Time Cufk, aka Time Kucf, aka etcetera, is a Flash game that originally came out last September on Newgrounds. It’s creators are Edmund McMillen (author – also behind indie titles like Super Meat Boy, Gish and many more), William Good (programmer – has worked on a number of other games I’m not […]

The Terrible Whiteness of Appalachian Nights

I was hoping to have my review of Four Lions finished today, but at the moment it’s still just a bunch of notes and half-baked ideas. So, instead, here’s a short review of something I played t’other day. The Terrible Whiteness of Appalachian Nights is a web-based indie game from increpare games, a one man […]

Blood Bowl (Xbox 360)

It would have been hard for Cyanide Studios to mess up Blood Bowl; after all, all they had to do was port the well-established board game’s rules to a digitised format and then dress everything up with pretty graphics and sounds. In fact the short version of this review is… yeah, they’ve done that. Job […]

Mass Effect 2

I did say that I wasn’t going to review this, but unusually I’ve polished it off in under a week and a half. This in itself speaks well of the game. I’m not going to review it so much as geek out about its strengths, its flaws, areas that interest me, plus some speculation for […]

Massively affecting

It was going to be a bit of a Holy Roar week, but it’s actually turned out to be a bit of a quiet week. That’ll be work keeping me busy plus the lethargy of self-inflicted exhaustion. Reviews of Throats and Antares should go up sometime soonish. My pre-order copy of Mass Effect 2 arrived […]

Game Review: Race Pro (360)

Quit yawning at the back: turns out this serious racing simulator is actually fairly good fun. Go read my review if you’re inclined to find out why.

Sneeze, hack, splutter, headshot

I’ve been ill and housebound for two days. As per usual this has meant I’ve been playing quite a few videogames. It would have been nice to read, but my house lacks nice places for sitting and reading. Oh to have an armchair in my room. Also, focusing on a game seemed to result in […]
