Diablo on Windows Finished the expansion this week and instantly got bored of it. Realized once again that I was playing it to see what happens at the end.   Warface on Windows and XBOX 360 Work, work, work. Testing the updates on both builds.   Child of Light on Playstation 4 I like Japanese RPGs. When I finished Farcry 3, I promised myself I’ll play whatever Jeffrey Yohalem...

Initial Review: All-New Ghost Rider

I

Publisher: Marvel Comics Author: Felipe Smith Artwork: Trad Moore Initial Review Based On Issues #1 and #2   I really don’t know how to feel about the All-New Ghost Rider. All the ingredients are there for me to like it. But I feel like I’m not liking it as much as I would like to like it. I’m a bit confused. The whole feeling is similar to what I felt when I played...

Games That Aren’t Games

G

What Gone Home learned from To The Moon, or why we do not play games out of chronological order, no matter how apropos it is to the subject matter of said games. So I played To The Moon. I did not cry. I did smile broadly once or twice, and it gave me goosebumps, so it did, but that was it. I was too annoyed by the game to fully buy into it and when the beautiful inversions and reveals happened...

Story Review: “Brütal Legend”

WARNING: This review is only concerned with the story of a game. Even though the story is an important part of a game, by no means is it the defining component. A game with a horrible story may very well be one of the best games ever produced. It’s just that my reviews are not about that.

Game Reviews Saga: Episode 1 – 101 Percent Awesome

G

Let us start with an amusing anecdote then… Once upon a time, in the land where I live, there was a print magazine covering video games. Its name was 64’ler. People who’re familiar with the semi-famous German magazine 64’er may be excused to think that it was the Turkish version of the same magazine. It wasn’t. It wasn’t half as professionally done and though the articles in it were about the...

Less than entirely obvious

L

I want to talk about a scene in an episode of The Mentalist today. The Mentalist is a TV show in which the titular Mentalist “helps” the police solve crimes. I won’t go into the general fiction of the series too much, but I just want to point out one thing to illustrate how the writers of The Mentalist feel about being obvious. The “outsider helps police” trope...

I live in Dublin. It is a good city to live in: anywhere that’s worth going to is within walking distance of my flat (thank you Dublin, how very thoughtful), the architecture is pretty enough (as long as you keep your eyes high enough not to notice the piles of rubbish accumulating around the lower parts of the architecture), and the people. The people! Since I don’t know much about...

Fuck you, grapefruit

F

Fuck you, grapefruit. Fuck you right in your sickly dark-red ass. Grapefruits are the Nigerian spam of the world of fruit. Yay, I just got $20,000,000 off this Nigerian prince on the internet. Wait, why is my bank account empty? Yay, oranges! Wait, grapefruit. In every way that oranges are awesome, grapefruits are awful. Just look at them! Oranges are joyful, bright, full of...
