A random mix of games, tech, and anything else that people wanted a few good words on. Doesn’t include things like news, quickies, or most pieces converted from print – it’s often not a comfortable transition…
PC Gamer > Video Crap Shoot: Police Quest
What time is it? Time for another ludicrously over-produced retrospective video! Hit the beat with Sonny Bonds, and a good helping of snark.
PC Gamer > Crap Shoot: Mortal Coil
Fourteen minutes of absolute failure… and that’s just the intro movie. Unfortunately the game, despite great ideas, gets no better.
PC Gamer > Preview: Night Of The Rabbit
“Jerry, do you remember what I told you?” “…nothing is impossible?” “And soon it will no longer sound like a question when you say it.”
Eurogamer > Eve Online: The Second Decade
A look back at how the game got where it is, and where it’s going next with the integration of Dust 514 and the expansion of the sandbox.
PC Gamer > Let’s Reboot… Command and Conquer
America finally faces off against Europe in this week’s thought experiment… but why does it feel like apocalyptic history repeating in advance?
PC Gamer > Crap Shoot: Hugo 2: Whodunit?
The second most phoned in detective mystery of all time… though still slightly more plausible than anything that’s ever happened in Bones.
IGN > Review: Mars: War Logs
Get your ass to Mars and start a revolution. No diamond in the rough, but a few sparkles of at least agate and topaz if you’re willing to settle for that.
Eurogamer > A Postcard From Eve FanFest
So that’s why… no, not going to do another Iceland joke. A report from this year’s big gathering, not quite live from the third world of Super Mario Bros 3.
Eurogamer > Preview: World of Darkness
Is it one of the most intriguing MMOs we won’t actually get to play for at least a couple of years? Couldn’t possibly comment…
Eurogamer > Visiting Eve Online With Oculus Rift
That’s a new dogfighting game called EVR, mind, not Eve Online proper. But is this potentially once-in-a-lifetime chance to play it worth regretting not having?
