Life, you know, it's bigger. It's bigger than you, and I don't know if you've noticed, but you are not me. Ahem... So, it's nearly over. The year 2012 that is, not the world (I hope). I thought I would run a little series of posts to take us through to new year, posts in … Continue reading Best of 2012: Introduction
A review of Limbo, which I recently enjoyed on Steam.
... is pretty awesome. I can see there's a ridiculous amount of backlash out there right now, some grounded and some not. I followed the potato ARG only casually for the most part, and it's fair to say that like every other ARG ever created, its ultimate end didn't really justify the time spent. That … Continue reading Portal 2…

Hooray for GiantBomb which handed out a bunch of Star Trek Online beta keys a couple of weeks back, allowing myself and Mr. MyCousin to play through this beta. Let me first state upfront that I have never played World of Warcraft. I have played trials of EVE, Warhammer Online, Final Fantasy XI and even … Continue reading Star Trek Online (Open Beta)

Almost got kicked in the previous round as infected because I pounced a smoker's … Continue reading Left4Dead
So, I got Braid last week. Mind blowing. So what is Braid? Well, Braid is an independently produced "videogame" by a "man" named "Jonathan Blow". It's a 2D platformer on the surface, drawing heavily on classics like Super Mario Bros, but in actuality it's more of a puzzle game than anything else. The hook is … Continue reading Braid
That is by far the geekiest title for a post I have ever made, and I only hope the full 3000-word text lives up to that expectation. You see, I thought I'd do something different today. Rather than review an album, or the latest BSG or whatever else, I was sitting on the toilet reading … Continue reading Control: A Historical Review of Joypads
Sometimes I realise that I tend to review things I like rather than things I don't, which is fair enough considering I'm not a professional reviewer. However, just to balance things out, every once in a while I like to be more critical. Bioshock is a game that has recieved almost unanimous praise, and yet, … Continue reading Bioshock (PC)
