‘River’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

To make a detective show stand out these days there has to be something a little different about it. It needs to stands out from the huge crowd of ones that already have huge fan bases. River is one that not only has Stellan Skarsgård to catch people’s interest, but a decidedly macabre twist. John […]

‘Mordheim: City of the Damned’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Mordheim: City of the Damned is the type of game I tend to not be good at. While playing it tends to punish me for being too impulsive, and I’ve not got the patience to handle the resources that I need to control. When it plays so well though, it’s also a game that keeps […]

Some games, while they offer a single player experience thrive off being social. However Clandestine is well thought out enough to let one player succeed, but to truly find your groove you need another person to work with you.
