GOTY 2023: Best of Early Access (Part 1)
It is that time of year! The occasion I write a ton of game reviews and talk about the past twelve months in gaming. We've got a big event ahead, and this is the first part: Best of Early Access! In this two parter, I cover some amazing games in development, give them a go!
The end of another year is nearly upon us, and we know what that means. It’s time for another Game of the Year series! I’ve made no major changes to my schedule or rule-set for 2023. This is almost identical to last year’s event. What an odd year it has been. We’ve had some insane […]
Bite Sized Reviews: Wargroove 2
With its expanded campaign, impressive roguelike mode and a slew of improvements, Wargroove 2 is a solid sequel and a great strategy RPG in its own right.
Damn, September was a gigantic month for game releases, but October is no slouch either. It’s starting to get colder here in the UK, although it is still bright and sunny outside while I’m typing up these rambles. I am also recovering from a nasty second bout of covid last week. It picks its moments, […]
Bite Sized Reviews: Untamed Tactics
In today's Bite Sized Review, I feature Untamed Tactics: a quirky tactical RPG based on the board game Untamed Feral Factions. Provided some of the more annoying bugs get fixed, this is a pretty nice game!
It’s been a slow time here at Bite-Sized Reviews. Between battling fibromyalgia and a second dose of Covid, I’ve been out of action longer than I would like. While I’m in recovery, these will be more sporadic for a while. It sucks because I love playing games and writing about them. However, I do need […]
Bite Sized Thoughts: Blasphemous 2
Yep, thoughts, not reviews! I'm not very far into Blasphemous 2 so far, but I wanted to type up my early experiences. There's a chance I am very bad at these kind of games...
A better title for today’s article would be something like — “How I Completely Fail at Blasphemous 2: And Other Animals”. It’s been an odd couple of weeks. We’ve just finished being on the receiving end of a nasty heatwave here in the UK. Recently we had 27 degrees Celsius here in the merry North-East, […]

Bite Sized Reviews: En Garde!
In today's little review, I cover the excellentae En Garde! Do not sleep on this one.
One of my favourite older games is Dark Messiah: Might and Magic. While the story was a hot mess and it had some flaws overall, what I loved about that game was the combat. Using the environment as a creative sandbox in fights is always something I get behind with my games. Having a host […]
