‘Hell Let Loose’ Early Impressions

Hmm. Well. I’m running somewhat late with this one. It’s my early impressions piece (in case the title didn’t give that away) for Hell Let Loose (you also might’ve picked that one up), as...

Deathloop Early Impressions

Depending on your reviewer of choice, when Deathloop came out you would’ve either had a rather positive or a rather ‘meh’ view of the game before putting hands on it yourself. While the major...

Descenders Early Impressions

The Descenders is a Mountain Biking-themed rogue-lite. No really! It is. I almost went as far as to say rogue-like, because there isn’t really much you unlock that helps you on subsequent runs. All...

Outriders Worldslayer Impressions

Outriders was far from the perfect game when it launched. Technical issues threatened to devour the hardwon loot of your characters. Design choices at the end game meant focusing on DPS was the only...

Lost Ark – Month and a Half On

Personally? I’ve still been playing. Still struggling to find the time to slot in posts between playing probably excessive amounts of both Lost Ark and Elden Ring. Reading has taken a fairly severe backseat...

Returnal: First Impressions

This post was going to be last night! But then a fresh COVID related lockdown happened. World media wasn’t altogether kind regarding the NZ decision to go into lockdown on the basis of a...

Exodus at an End

It’s over. Journey’s end, as a player at least, has been reached. Yep. I’ve finished Metro Exodus: Enhanced Edition. And phew, what a ride. Without a doubt, a large contributor to my enjoyment was...

Early Outriders Impressions

When I first opened this, the whitespace that would become this post, earlier in the morning I wasn’t really that far into the game yet. If you were curious — I’d made it to...
