Five Game Challenge – 2020

Last year, I put myself through a bit of a challenge. A Five Game Challenge. You might’ve already gathered that though from the title, even if you weren’t here at the time. Though if you weren’t, possibly the finer points of detail might still elude you. Not to worry! Let’s play catch-up and relive the

Humble Choice: May 2020

Alright, so I’m a little late on this one. The new choices came out a couple of days ago now but dangit I really wanted to get the top five most/least viewed posts out and out together. In that time, Magi put his thoughts up over on The Indiecator and are worth a look for

Madness! Picking Just 5 Games for a Year

Now, I’m not much of one to partake in Halloween generally. But I came across something truly terrifying that I had to share. No, terrifying isn’t enough. It’s horrifying. Any other time of year, I might’ve had a quiet shiver and let it pass. But no. It’s Halloween season, and so I must share. Over

XCOM 2 and The Outer Worlds Added

It’s been a wee while since I’ve done a post in this format. I’d actually been struggling a bit with what I wanted to turn this into and how I wanted to carry it forward into the future. Looking back, the last time was for No Man’s Sky in August. Since then I cleared the
