‘What Happened’ Review (PC/Steam)

by Chris Thomas

Ah… Indie horror games. We tend to remember the few successes but forget the many failures. What Happened is an indie horror game available through Steam. From the off the game tries to scare us, with warnings of seizures and unskippable opening credits that managed to stutter slightly on my pretty darn powerful gaming PC. […]

I was late to the party with The Outer Worlds because I was waiting for the release on Switch. Then I saw how it ran on Switch and politely cancelled my order and got the PC version instead!

‘The Walking Dead: All-Out War’ Board Game Review

by Chris Thomas

How did zombies go from being an extremely niche form of horror to being pop culture mainstream? up there with teenage mutant turtles and twerking. There is even a skittles television advert featuring a zombie high school romance scene for heaven’s sake. At this point we are so invested in the idea of zombies it […]

‘Fire Emblem: Three Houses’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Chris Thomas

The Nintendo Switch may be a little console, but it has big ideas. Being able to play a huge RPG on the go is fantastic and honestly, the Switch is my favourite games console since the Dreamcast. With Fire Emblem: Three Houses we are in classic, turn-based JRPG territory here. In terms of gameplay think […]

‘Sisters Royale: Five Sisters Under Fire’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Chris Thomas

I am rubbish at “bullet hell” shooters. There are two main reasons for this, the first is, despite playing video games for over 30 years, I am not very good at video games. This has been masked somewhat by the fact that modern games are far easier than the games of my childhood. The second […]
