No Man’s Sky has officially landed and considering it’s previous hiccups it seems to be causing quite a stir. Normally I’d form an opinion and write a review upon finishing a game, but considering the sheer size of No Man’s Sky that’s never going to happen, so I’m going with my gut on this one. […]
It’s very rare that I am one to judge a book by its cover, what with novels having different editions etc. But there was something about this particular book that grabbed me; perhaps it was the upside down skeleton dressed as a cowboy, leering and grinning madly from the shelf at me. Maybe it was […]
Happy Hallowsteam!! It’s that time of year again where Valve put a lot of horror games (and this year, a lot of non-horror games too) on sale over the course of the Halloween period. It also coincides with payday, which means I’m going to be on instant noodles for the entirety of November I think… […]

"That's right, you want to bring adventurers into your dangerous dungeon and slaughter them."
Take a hugely successful kid’s book series (like Harry Potter) with mythical (or magical) undertones, and turn it into an also hugely successful movie series (like Harry Potter).

The time of point and click adventures seem to be having somewhat of a resurgence as of late, and to me that's just brilliant. I cut my gaming teeth so to speak on the incredible (if somewhat frustrating) Discworld, Monkey Island and Broken Sword games so I'm in love with Tell-Tale games and now Daedalic Entertainment. Tell-Tale for bringing me the wonderful Walking Dead series and latest Monkey Island and Daedalic for Memoria.
