Here's some recommendations on HTC Vive games!
Previously I reviewed Far Cry 3 on the surface level and deemed it to be a pretty good game. In this post I’ll examine the writing and explain why I think Far Cry 3 is a great game.
Beware, there are countless spoilers. If you want to experience the game yourself without my biases, play it first.
I give in and review Torchlight 2 by comparison with Diablo 3.
I review Diablo 3 and Blizzard's ideas for it.
After the explosion of triple A games late last year, I've finally cleaned through them and started playing a wider variety of games. A bunch of friends have recommended some awesome games, that I thought I might share with you.
I have a confession to make. I’ve been working on a review of Saints Row The Third for a little while now, but Christmas got in the way. I’ve 100% the game and loved every minute of it. However my long form review was more-or-less captured by ex-RPS writer Kieron Gillen in his Eurogamer review. In short, it’s a game of pure madness, where if you trust the developers to give you fun, they’ll deliver by the truckload. It’s not at all subtle or particularly sophisticated, but it’s very, very fun. I like what they are doing with player-based content and telemetry, and it’s great to see a developer smack it out of the park with good humour.
Anyway, I had captured over 100 screenshots in preparation for the review, and I can’t let them go to waste. So I present to you my insane, not-safe-for-work holiday in Steelport (aka Saints Row 3):
I got to play Star Wars The Old Republic for a weekend, and I'm sharing my impressions of a very expensive, very ambitious, but ultimately conservative game.
I finished Rage last night. I give my final impressions and share a whole bunch of pictures.
I review Rage, for good and bad.
So Valve Software recently released their much-awaited sequel to Portal. Before its release they published a number of in-house generated trailers, and promoted the release with an alternate reality game. The game came out, the critics almost universally loved it, but on Metacritic, the forums and blogs there seemed to be general ire against the game and Valve in particular. I'd like to explore this to get a feel of the current games market and blow off some steam on Portal 2, the ARG, Steam and Valve themselves.
