Indie Game: The Movie

Stu recommended I watch this film. Thanks to Netflix (which I am loving, by the way), I watched it. I’ll pretty much echo Stu’s thoughts on it. These talented individuals who have devoted their lives to creating amazing videogames do not deserve the contempt which is levelled at them by …

Just had this really odd comment on the Fez thing I wrote

I’ve just had this really odd comment on the Fez thing that I wrote a couple of weeks ago. When you start the game you will find your character, Gomez, in bed. Walk to the door and push up. Outside, go to the mailbox. You will have a letter asking …

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 …

I love the film Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. I love the Scott Pilgrim graphic novels. I do not love Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game. The universe itself is wonderfully realised in-game, it’s quite faithful to the books, and any new bits they added are also very much …

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 …
