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 > Crap Shoot: Hare Raising Havoc
He’s no Easter Bunny – he’s Roger Rabbit. And this was the rare game that didn’t turn out to be a generic platformer like on other… well… platforms.
IGN > Review: Super House Of Dead Ninjas
A high-speed swordfight – the vicious strikes and counters and feints played out with platforms and jumping and deathtraps. At least, kindof.
PC Gamer > Let’s Reboot… Age Of Empires
A much sillier take on the series that never took its history all that seriously. Fun to try one not so narrative based this time, though considerably harder…
PC Gamer > Saturday Crapshoot: Isle Of The Dead
No relation to Isle Of Lucy, the home of a small tribe whose development mysteriously managed to mirror the life of a popular 50s comedy show.
Eurogamer > Preview: The Elder Scrolls Online
A prisoner of tradition, a victim of heritage. The Elder Scrolls Online struggles to recapture Skyrim’s magic, but this is TEScO… every little helps!
PC Gamer > Crap Shoot: InterAction Magazine
A nostalgic look back at the magazine that proudly called itself ‘blatantly biased’, but ended up being a little more honest than it possibly should.
PC Gamer > Let’s Reboot… Ultima
This week’s sacred cow – the RPG with its sights set on honour… and eight other virtues too. What does it take to walk in the footsteps of the Avatar?
PC Gamer > Crap Shoot: Tomb Raider: The Angel Of Darkness
The reboot that almost destroyed a series – but was it really as bad as people say? Hint: Yes. Answer: Yes. Follow-up: Oh dear lord, yes.
IGN > Mass Effect 3: Citadel
A hilarious love letter from BioWare to the Mass Effect universe – at least this era – that even takes the sting out of That Ending.
Web Original > Tomb Raider: A Survivor Is Abridged
It’s Lara Croft’s most painful adventure since The Angel Of Darkness. In terms of physical pain, that is. The actual game’s pretty good fun.
