Fixing the Past to Save the Future in Eternal Threads - A Review
“Six erroneous fatalities… Could be worse, Forty Three.”
GOTY 2022: Best of Early Access (Part 1)
It's that time of year again where I talk loads about my favourite (and least favourite) games of the last twelve months. In this first episode, I cover five of my ten favourite Early Access games from 2022!
Another year has gone by! Welcome to my GOTY series. Last year was a big event, and 2022 will be my most extensive and ambitious series yet. Seven articles are planned this year, with a guaranteed six. The seventh is a funny awards thing on my mind because I think it’ll be amusing, but I’ll […]
Against the Storm Impressions Review
In my final review before the GOTY series, I cover Against the Storm, a fantastic dark city builder that pushes players to their limits!
It’s getting colder, and Christmas music is blasting away in shops already. Far too freaking soon for that. It barely waited until Halloween was over! I’m back once again! I planned to make this a typical Indie Corner episode: to write a final episode for the year before moving on to my GOTY series. However, […]
I Played Every Single Tomb Raider Game So You Don't Have To - Part 1
Join SpeakableCassie for a look back at the original Tomb Raider trilogy, in the first part of her franchise-wide review series!
Indie Corner Episode 25: Dinos, Castles and Aliens
The penultimate Indie Corner episode brings you three recent indies: Terror of Hermasaurus, Open the Gates and Batora: Lost Haven!
You know, sometimes you look at your gaming backlog and wonder how you will finish it. I stopped thinking about my library as a backlog, choosing instead to call it a sandpit. I play what I want to when I want to. It’s been a gruelling year, but I can always rely on gaming to […]
Indie Corner Episode 24: Hackers, Flowers and Spaceships, Oh My!
We review three new games today! Wydle Flowers, Deadeye Deepfake Simulacrum and Cosmoteer are today's helpings!
We are officially in November! October was a long and rough month for me, at least healthwise, but I seem to be on the mend. It was also a massive month for games with lots of big releases. The standouts for me were Persona 5 Royal finally coming to PC and the massive Rimworld expansion, […]
SpeakableCassie's Ominous October Spookathon - Part 4
Happy Halloween to all the boils, ghouls, and non-boo-nary people out there! It’s that terrifyingly fun time of year once again when I celebrate both the best and the worst that horror gaming has to offer. It’s also that time of year when I continue my failed attempts at coming up with a spooky greeting […]
Indie Corner Episode 23: A Time of Giants
We've got three big indie games to cover today: Slime Rancher 2, the behemoth that is Terra Invicta made by the Long War devs as well as debut RPG Lost Eidolons. These are heavy hitters!
We’re approaching the end of 2022. Honestly? It’s been a crappy year even as the 2020s go so far, but at least we’ve been able to play some fantastic games! Even considering all the significant delays and pushbacks, I’ve had an incredible year with gaming, far more so than in 2021. The delays are understandable. […]
Ctrl Alt Ego Impressions Review: Sheer Egotistic Brilliance
One of 2022's unforgettable experiences, Ctrl Alt Ego combines non-linear gameplay and a dark story into a brilliant immersive sim not seen in mainstream gaming in years.
So this was originally going to be a full Indie Corner episode. Unfortunately, I’ve come down with some health issues again, and while I’m on the mend, it’s having a knock-on effect on other parts of my health, especially brain fog. As a result, I’ve found it difficult to concentrate on things. My mental health […]
Secure, Contain and Protect, in SCP: Secret Files – A Review
I absolutely adore the concept of the SCP Foundation… You may have heard about SCPs before, but I feel it’s worth contextualising the idea to show just how deep the rabbit hole goes. Created in early 2008, the SCP website is a Wikipedia of fictional content, filled to the brim with fan contributions designed to intrigue, terrify and entertain its readers.
