New Releases – October 2017


October is pretty chock full of new releases. Top mention goes to A Hat in Time. Partially because I helped back it on Kickstarter and mostly because it looks soooo adorable. I can’t say I’ve played a proper platformer in quite some time – hopefully I’m not too terrible at them to enjoy its timely…

New Releases – September 2017


Update: Something for the man with many cheeses; Divinity Original Sin 2 is coming out of Early Access mid-september. The first game was pretty damn good anyway, the sequel adds four player co-op, lots of races, a better combat system and a plethora of other zany Larian things. Koei’s output seems to be in overdrive lately….

New Releases – August 2017


Suddenly, games. If you haven’t already played it on PC, Pillars of Eternity comes out this month on PS4 and XBone. Kickstarted a few years ago, it brought us the kind of great Party Based, Real Time With Pause RPG that hadn’t been seen since Dragon Age Origins. It has a decent story and lots…

New Releases – July 2017


It’s a pretty barren month coming up. Of the slim pickings, top would be Final Fantasy XII – The Zodaic Age. It might be a remaster, but its also a version of a game many are unlikely to have played.

New Releases – June 2017


By chance or design, two massive MMO’s are releasing their expansions in June. Elder Scrolls Online taps into nostalgia and takes players back to Morrowind. Unlike the previous DLC for the game, Morrowind is a purchase-only expansion (i.e. you don’t get it with the optional subscription and you can’t buy it with in-game currency) Hopefully…

New Releases – May 2017


A few titles out this May. Not much that warrants an instant buy, but there’s some items of interest. Prey might not be the follow up to the 2006 game that many people had hoped for, but it is a game by Arkane Studios with writing by Chris Avellone. That alone should be enough to…

New Releases – April 2017


Finally, Persona 5 is out this month. It only been reviewed in a few places so far, but all looks positive. It’ll be good to get back into the structured world of Persona again. It’s certainly been a long time coming, considering Persona 4 released waaay back in 2008. Needless to say, it’s on my…

New Releases – March 2017


Highlights this month include Horizon Zero Dawn (great name /s) the launch of Nintendo’s new console – the Switch, Zelda Breath of the Wild, Mass Effect Andromeda and Nier: Automata. 

The Gaming Month Ahead – February 2017


UPDATED: It turns out Persona 5 is delayed until April 4th. Thanks to James in the comments for that heads up. There’s a few big titles this month, but surprisingly not as many as I might have expected. Right at the end of the month comes Torment: Tides of Numenera. It’s the spiritual successor to Planescape…

The Gaming Month Ahead – January 2017


I never have much expectations from Januaries. Most of the time they tend to surprise and have some pretty great games hidden away in the post-christmas lull. This year is fairly slim pickings for big titles. For most people Resident Evil 7 will likely be the biggest title this month. Personally for me it’s a…

The Gaming Month Ahead – December 2016


It’s December. There’s never really many games this time of year and that still holds true. Still, there’s a few high-profile titles coming out the right side of the black-friday mess that seemed to have impacted COD, Dishonored 2 and Titanfall 2’s sales. The long awaited cat-weasel is unleashed. The Last Guardian finally arrives.

The Gaming Month Ahead – November 2016


November is here, and with it lots of big games and a slightly upgraded console. Let’s start with Tyranny. A game from Obsidian following Pillars of Eternity was always going to have my attention. While I didn’t think much of the White March expansion, the base game was easily my best RPG experience since Dragon…
