Deadline Review

It’s 1930 something, you’re a New York City detective, and your career is looking glum as you tap your last cigarette from its packet, light it up and lean back in your creaky old chair. The smoke billows lazily around you as the fan whirs loudly in the corner of your dingy office. Then you…

A little late getting the round up of news from Paris Games Week, as I had the unfortunate timing of a dentist appointment midway through the conference. I was keeping up to date with comments sat in the waiting room getting more hyped with the news I was reading with regards to new trailers for…

Codenames Duet Review

Codenames has been very successful since its release and is a regular party game at many tables. It’s easy to see why; it’s simple to pick up, involves lots of people and is a lot of fun. But with multiple iterations already available, do we really need another version? The short answer is yes, and…

Just me this week as Murr settles in to his new job and new routine, so what have I been up to? Star Wars Battlefront 2 I wasn’t the biggest fan of Battlefront, sure it looked and sounded fantastic but the overall gameplay felt shallow to me – it quickly got boring. I’m open minded…

Path of Fire – A Whole New World

It’s safe to say that I’m an MMO noob, I’ve dabbled in World of Warcraft, but not for too long, I tried Elder Scrolls Online but didn’t get very far, I even played EVE Online for a while, but was a bit overwhelmed by it all. I also played Guild Wars 2 when it first…
