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: The Zoo Race
The animals may have gone into the ark two by two (hurrah, hurrah), but only one can be first past the finish line in this insane arcade racer.
Edge > Guild Wars 2: The Lost Shores
A text-based tour of Guild Wars 2′s November weekend, speaking to the people behind it about what creating an event like this takes.
PC Gamer > Guild Wars 2: The Lost Shores
A video based look at this Guild Wars 2 weekend event, featuring unfortunate plosives, odd pronunciation, and more. But people seemed to like it.
PC Gamer > Crap Shoot: Crime Wave
Stupidity of criminal proportions, a 24 carat crapmine from start to finish. It even stole its title music. Does it have no shame? It does not.
Eurogamer > Hollow Worlds: Looking For Look At
Modern game worlds are built to be attractive, and usually succeed. When it comes to peeling back their facades though, I miss having an old sense.
PC Gamer > Crap Shoot: Noctropolis
A bit of an experiment – this week, a game that wanted to bring comics to games, in some kind of ‘video’. How futuristic! (And not remotely ropey!)
Rock Paper Shotgun > Handz On With RaiderZ
A quick look at the latest MMO hoping to carve out a niche against the giants with action combat, giant monsters, and many Zs to catch.
PC Gamer > Crap Shoot: Dreamweb
Another 90s game officially goes freeware, but is the weird, weird world of Dreamweb still worth taking the time to download?
PC Gamer > Crap Shoot: James Bond: The Stealth Affair / Operation Stealth
The shameless James Bond rip-off that actually ended up getting the license. But did it earn its license to kill? No. The answer is “No.”
Rock Paper Shotgun > Interv-U: Lori and Corey Cole Go Rogue
The Quest For Glory designers are back with a new game. I talk to them about that, heroism, and an exciting new idea for an RPG that will never be made.
