Bedtime stories: Battle Princess Madelyn review

Battle Princess Madelyn was clearly a labour of love. There are so many details crammed into its pixel art, so many little flourishes that lend depth and character to its creepy catacombs and zombie infested marshlands. It’s a love letter to…

JR Knight Racer Chair review

Beds, shoes and chairs – things that conventional wisdom tells us we should never cheap out on. If you’re not in one, you’re in the other, after all. And if, like me, you spend an inordinate amount of time playing…

Life is Strange 2: Ep 1: Roads review: Strength of the wolf

Life is Strange 2 is almost a direct reversal of the acclaimed first outing. Where Max and Chloe’s story took place in the same town, largely focusing on the same characters throughout its five episodes and prequel series Before the Storm, the second…

Red Dead Redemption II review: Redemption Blues

In many ways, Red Dead Redemption II tells the same story as the first game. The dying romance of the old West, the price the country paid for America’s Manifest Destiny, and the ever-fading sunset rogues and outlaws try to ride off…

Another Sight review: A cat and his girl

Another Sight, a Neil Gaiman inspired adventure developed by Lunar Great Wall Studios, sees you padding about an industrial underworld as a lost young woman with the world’s most severe case of synesthesia. Teaming up with a sharp stray cat, Kit…

Vampyr has some extremely lofty, ambitious central messages, almost in an attempt to step as far away as possible from Life is Strange’s idyllic teen ambience. At the core of it all, a gifted doctor stricken down with vampirism, still trying to heal…

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery rant: the Shameless Microtransactions

Microtransactions. Ugh! Remember that part in the Philosopher’s Stone where Harry needed to cast Lumos to fend off the Devil’s Snare but he ran out of magic halfway through and had to wait three hours before he could cast it…

Go Fish with METRICMIND’s Catch & Release

Catch & Release. Two of the biggest rules in fishing. Between shooting aliens and inappropriately touching grown men playing as tiny anime girls it’s good to get a break in VR. The medium is full of breakneck experiences and creepy…

Second album syndrome: The Council – Episode 2 review

We lavished the first episode of The Council with praise, a wonderfully strong first entry in a narrative adventure game that broke the mold. Unfortunately, that standard was set a bit too high to follow, and Episode 2, shorter and much less…
