Songs of Conquest Early Impressions: Reimagining a Classic
There’s been a lot of cool indie releases out in recent weeks! I’m back again with more rummaging through the indie game boxes. After a packed Q1, 2022 seems to be slowing down at least on the AAA side. With the delay of Starfield into 2023 and the usual summer lull, things will be fairly […]
Indie Corner Episode 11: It's That Time Again!
It’s been a while since I wrote an indie article. March and April have been big months both for game releases and worldwide events. Itch.io, Fanatical and Humble Bundle all released gigantic charity bundles in March to support the people of Ukraine, and I picked up the first two. Firstly, some old updates on games […]
How to be a Pokemon Master: Ranking Every Mainline Pokemon Game! Part 1
It took two years, but I finally ended up with Covid. It has taken me a while to push through it. I spent a lot of my time curled up in bed with Lemsip, painkillers, and stuff to pass the time, and a lot of that was Pokemon. I recently finished Ultra Sun for my […]

It’s been quite a while since I continued this series, isn’t it? It’s a new year, and more games than ever are being released. 2022 looks like it could be one of the biggest years in gaming in a long time, and already we’ve seen some pretty cool stuff, both on the indie and AAA […]
Finding the Fun in Mediocrity: Watchdogs Legion
Here’s an interesting question: Do games have to be good to be enjoyable? Short answer = no. Not necessarily. Of course I’d prefer games to be well designed that don’t frustrate me. I’ve played many games which I’ve grown to love playing even if they have a lot of jank and problems holding them back. […]
