  • I’ll confess, if there’s something that doesn’t get old it’s survival games. I play games for the thrill and have always found myself migrating towards titles which not only stretches my imagination to the limits but also scares the word-which-rhymes-with-trap out of me. I was very excited when Naughty Dog and Sony announced their release of the game ‘The Last of Us’ at the Spike VGA’s. It’s definitively something to look forward to from the creators of UNCHARTED but the game is still a long way down the road. Closer to home is the release of AMY – another horror survival game which centres around the players character Lana needing to escourt an autistic girl called Amy through a hostile city filled […]

    The price of Amy – have your say.

  • It was one of my most anticipated moments in the second Mass Effect game. As Female Shepard I had just saved the colony of Horizon from having all of their colonists carried off by the Collectors. As I watched the large ship leave the planet, I found myself dreading the next few seconds, knowing that I was going to find out if Kaiden, my FemShep’s love interest from Mass Effect 1, was taken or not. A part of me had hoped that he would be gone, because then I could heroically rescue him from the arms of his captors. But, as it turned out, he had remained behind, much to the irritation of the cowardly engineer who was more than […]

    Mass Effect 3 – Why I’ve decided to cheat on my Love Interest

  • War, war never changes. My first sense of self was staring down at my tied hands. Pumpkin gloves as I know them. Thick leather gloves that you can use on a farm or ranch. My hands are tied and when I look up there are three men around me. One of them’s shifty, the other cold eyed and the last one dressed in a fancy suit. I look up at him as he smiles at me, draws out his gun, tells me it’s not personal and that the game was fixed and then… Then he shoots me. My vision goes white and I lose consciousness. Or die, depending on how you look at it. These are the opening moments of Bethesda’s fourth Fallout game, Fallout New Vegas. It’s […]
