Game At A Glance: Fallout 4

Title: Fallout 4 Developer: Bethesda What I Think: Fallout 4 is an example of a developer doing what they do best and, in the case of Bethesda, that’s open-world RPG games with survival and turn-based-combat elements.  The hype train for Fallout 4 was firing on all cylinders, partly because of the money thrown behind it and partly because of the […]Read More

Game At A Glance: Sir, You Are Being Hunted

Title: Sir, You Are Being Hunted Developer: Big Robot What I Think: Sir, You Are Being Hunted (or just ‘Sir..’ because typing out the whole title is strenuous and repetitive for both me, the writer, and you, the reader) is an atmospheric indie semi-horror survival game. Yes, we did a similar game last month in the […]Read More

Game At A Glance: Insurgency

Title: Insurgency Developer: New World Interactive My thoughts: Insurgency is a tactical multiplayer shooter in the vein of Medal of Honor (the good ones, not the panned recent ones) and Counter-Strike. You play as either the security forces or the insurgents, with their inevitable black balaclavas and AK-47’s. The gameplay bears a strong resemblance to […]Read More
