Fortnite Battle Royale

  Fortnite: Battle Royale is a free-to-play (which immediately put it on my radar) battle royale game. It features up to 100 players, all with the same objective. Eliminate all other competitors on the battlefield and be the last player standing. And you must achieve this while staying within a continuously shrinking safe zone lest the unblinking eye of God turn his gaze upon you, burning you...[Read More]

Into the Unknown: Part 3 Apocalypse Chow

In our last entry we left our heroes on the ragged edge of an ever-closing zone 4, now we return to the action, with each passing moment the odds stack higher, and not in Shannon or Kevin’s favour. After composing our-selves and proceeding into zone five, I am left with this sinking feeling that we are nearing the end of our long journey.  Consulting the map brings little joy, even collecting supp...[Read More]

Pure Farming 2018

Yes, surprisingly there is an actual story, believe me I am as shocked as you, it is centred around a city boy who, after spending many a summer on his Grandfathers ranch, is impassioned with a love of rural living. So, when the chance to take over the family farm presents itself the young man leaps at the chance, though the Grandfather had to die for this to happen, yeah, another surprise I didn’...[Read More]

5 Worst Video Game Betrayals

Video Games have a great knack for tugging at your heart strings, they are fictional worlds that we spend hours exploring, saving, and are filled with awesome characters that we develop bonds with. And it is because of that fondness that we feel all the more betrayed when one of the back-stabbing buggers turns around and fucks us over, maybe it’s for money, maybe it’s for power or maybe it’s becau...[Read More]

5 Video Game Characters We Loved Killing

If you haven’t yet worked it out, I love video games, mostly because I get to hit stuff with a sword and shoot stuff with a gun, but also because they’re a great way to tell a story, and they happen to have some of the greatest fictional characters ever. Video game characters can be strong and brave, quiet and reserved, or so infuriating to be around that you can’t help but devise painful, yet ela...[Read More]

Dishonored 2

The  main story is pretty strong, it picks up fifteen years after the events of the first game, Emily is now the Empress of the Isles and Corvo is her bodyguard. The Empress is then attacked, some betrayal goes on and either Corvo or Emily has to flee the empire in order to find out who is behind the plot, and regain the throne.  It’s a similar progression to the original, as in its heavily ...[Read More]

Final Fantasy VII

So, with news of Final Fantasy VII finally getting a remake, I felt it was time to dust off the PlayStation One, dig out my old copy and replay it for the 20th time. But then I thought to myself, “bollocks to that, it’s the future!”, so I downloaded to my PSP, so I could play it on the go and quite frankly, it hasn’t been out of my hands. You see Final Fantasy games require a lot of your time, (we...[Read More]

Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars

Paris in the fall… In 1998, Revolution Software gained a lifelong fan, after my chance discovery of Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars. I first played Broken Sword on my brother’s PlayStation 1; I was just 9 years old, looking for a new game to play after completing Road Rash. My brother had bought a Help Charity pack, which included 3 games. Road Rash, Myst and none other than Broken Sword: Sha...[Read More]

Modding

Modding is a funny thing, from Thomas the tank engine instead of dragons in Skyrim to naked people in Fallout 3; it was something I never really took seriously. That was until I found out that some people who mod games do it to make them run and look better. It was then I asked myself “Would it add anything to the experience?” or more accurately, “Could it add something new to an...[Read More]

Kings Quest: Episode 2

In Kings Quest: Rubble Without a Cause we pick back up with King Graham years after the events of episode 1, he has now taken the throne but is finding it harder than he thought it was going to be.
