Friday update 13/6/14

E3 has been and gone, and one of the only new things that I was interested in was the Master Chief Collection. The other things being Halo 5 (which there were not many details of, because it is so far away from release), and the Dark Souls 2 DLC (which …

Fez – An imagination without equal

I was going to write a review of Fez. You know, traditional review structure, explain the story, go over the gameplay mechanics, describe the graphics… But in the end, I decided that would be a waste of everyone’s time. Instead, I am going to gush about the place the game …

Halo 4: War Games

War Games – the new name for multiplayer Red vs Blue. This was always going to be the main area of the game for me, shooting guys is so much better than shooting AIs. It has a lot to live up to – the Halo series is the only First …

Halo 4: Campaign

I have played through the Campaign three times – once with Jane on Normal, once with Lewis on Heroic, and once by myself on Legendary. This is what I thought of it. Caution: There will be spoilers! Also, as well as the spoiler warning, I should let you know that …

Halo 4: Enemies

I’ve played through the Campaign mode three times now, once with Jane on Normal (she doesn’t like dying!), once on Heroic with Lewis, and once by myself, on Legendary, which was a slog! Those Promethean Knights sure have strong shields. This is what I thought of the Halo 4 bestiarum …

Typing and waffling

Looks like Wednesday is becoming my new update day. Due to the days I work, Monday has been designated “rest day” – coming off four days of work is quite tiring. I feel more perky and talkative on a Wednesday though, I’m more likely to want to do things like …

E3 2011

Well, that was a bit of a let down. The only things that stood out for me were one brand new (and kinda unexpected) Halo game, and one kinda expected (and brand new) Halo game. I’ll start with the kinda expected one, Halo Anniversary. It looks utterly beautiful in stills, …

From the Forum: Battlefield debut

Another one from the forum. This time it’s GrumpyPenguin, talking about his first go on Battlefield: Bad Company 2… I’m not saying I’m going to dislike this one, but my first outing did consist of quite a lot of running around in maps I don’t know to perform objectives I …
