Revengeance

Published on 01/06/2012 by in games

Did I mention that I love Platinum Games? And Metal Gear? So the more I see of Metal Gear Rising Revengeance, the happier I am. Yeah it’s rather cheesy and silly, but the gameplay footage is pretty spectacular. Check out the pre-E3 trailer:   And I particularly love the title screen for the E3 demo:

Mass Effect 3

Published on 06/04/2012 by in games

Finally got around to finishing off Mass Effect 3. I have not yet felt the urge to grab torches, pitchforks etc and camp outside Bioware HQ. Certainly, the final few minutes of the game are somewhat disappointing and nonsensical. It feels like they just ran out of time. Gamers are pretty used to seeing this

BAFTA 2012

Published on 18/03/2012 by in games, wtf

I’ve never really understood why British Academy of  Film and Television Arts (or NAMBLA) have a games awards show at all, but that’s a blog post for another day. The handheld category this year was a surprise. Some lovely little gems such as Magnetic Billiards and Quarrel were faced with the prospect of going toe-to-toe with Super

War on Tesco

Published on 13/03/2012 by in gamedev, games

Okay, this is getting ridiculous. My local Tesco (in Musselburgh, near Edinburgh) used to have a nice long aisle devoted to video games. Now, I estimate that at least 50% of that space is devoted to pre-owned games rather than new releases. They don’t sell used books, used movies, used clothing or used electronics. Only

Dear Esther

Published on 15/02/2012 by in games

Have written about this one before, but I’m delighted to read that sales of Dear Esther (at time of writing, site is down) on Steam have already covered development costs. Indeed, it was in profit after only six hours. Also, Eurogamer seemed rather positive about it this week. Now if everyone keeps buying it, can we

Quick recap

Published on 15/02/2012 by in gamedev, games

Like many “gamers of a certain age”, I find that juggling work life with family life results in very few finished games. Worse, when I try to remedy the situation by returning to some half-completed saved game several months old, I find myself out of my depth due to completely forgetting how to play. Some games

Double Fine Adventure

Published on 09/02/2012 by in gamedev, games

A few weeks ago a friend of mine told me to check out Kickstarter. I loved the idea but was disappointed by the selection of video game projects on there. My impression was that they were all just a bit amateurish, simply not strong enough to secure funding by more conventional means. If only more
