This week after 3 years I’ve finished and fallen for Spider-Man. Non-ironically it’s Marvelous, the story & characters are both familiar and novel, the combat slick with a variety of styles. I’ve loved Spidey titles since early incarnations on the original PlayStation, when it shared an engine with Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater… coincidence that I’m playing modern day recreations of both today 🙂 The one thought that I took away,…

I’ve recently discovered that I love rogue like games! Think I may have enjoyed them for a while, just never knew that I was enjoying them 🙂 But Hades is something different… so what works? The progressive epic novel like story It just keeps getting deeper, and richer! The story builds in layers; per play, per encounters, per success. Each increment of exploration expands another aspect of the narrative. The…

I read last week that Rockstar were giving a cool $1 Million each month to people with a next gen console (PS5 for me) who are playing GTAV online, until the new updated version is released. This piqued my interest as I’d never managed to get into the online game, beyond driving, even after owning it for nearly 8 years! This was initially because of my poor internet connection, then…

READ THE ORIGINAL POST How I Got a Hyper Light Drifter Review Code from the Publishers Ok, so first of all: BIG shout-out to Abylight Studios for the iOS version of Hyper Light Drifter which was released this year. And shout-out again for having won iPad Game of the Year Award 2019! I’ll start off with the story of how that happened. Hyper Light Drifter is full of quiet, serene moments like this.…

Completing Demon’s Souls was a great gaming accomplishment to tick off this week, but my real success was playing Blood Bowl 2, finally guiding the Reikland Reavers to smashthe Dwarf Warhammer team 3-0. Went on to triumph over the Skaven with the same score… great run; until I was humbled by Chaos after a first half grind.

Motivated by a post on Twitter, I dusted off perhaps my favourite Play Staion 5 game to date I had 7 bonfires / bosses left to finish my first playthrough Farmed souls in a circuit at Island’s Edge (4 – 1) Moved through the levels smooth enough, really enjoyed the novelty of The Ivory Tower (3 – 3) The ending sprung up on me, as I was hoping to farm…

So I’m generally enjoying the PS5, even with the lack of new titles, but I still have enough to keep me busy 🙂 Elite dangerous ‘ll get to near the end of a multi jump journey & the games crashes… I lose all of my discovery data Call of Duty Modern Warfare I’ve tried several times, I just can’t install the packages needed to play online multiplayer, even after downloading…

After trying several different Python libraries I’ve recently come across the Godot Engine Godot provides a huge set of common tools, so you can just focus on making your game without reinventing the wheel. Godot is completely free and open-source under the very permissive MIT license. No strings attached, no royalties, nothing. Your game is yours, down to the last line of engine code. I started working through a training…

I received this for free on PSN July 2021, and the line up of games didn’t impress me much; perhaps one of the weakest months I’ve seen for me personally. So A Plague Tale: Innocence, a stealth horror title with a linear story… not really my cup of tea. I’ve not managed to complete other triple titles of this genre as I get bored (The Last of US, I’m looking…
