Kicked into the Lead

Another game that looks impressive. And clearly I’m not the only one to think so — this fully funded within six hours, and hit US$1.5m in only nine.

And, not that it’ll make much difference since I don’t have that many readers, but: don’t forget Dreamfall, from my previous post. As this posts there’s […]

The return of Dreamfall

Dreamfall Chapters, the long-awaited sequel to Dreamfall and The Longest Journey, has finally opened its Kickstarter pledge drive.

It’s hard to express how much I love this series. But maybe some small indication is that I’ve been hanging around the (now going to be superseded) official forums for the games for so long that they […]


There’s just something strangely addictive about Curiosity (Android, iOS). I only just found it yesterday, so maybe it’ll be a passing fad, but I wore out my phone’s battery playing it yesterday.

I think it taps into the same part of the brain that enjoys popping bubble wrap. It’s somehow very cathartic.


Mass Effect 3

I recently completed my first playthrough of Mass Effect 3, and I feel the urge to share some thoughts with the world. Not that anyone’s listening, of course.

I’ve previously played the earlier games, of course (all three on PC), although unlike many others so far I’ve only really done one complete playthrough of […]

Gaming Update: Dec 2011

Well, it’s been a while since I last posted about games, and in that time I’ve played quite a lot of them. I’m not going to mention all of them (I’m sure I’ve forgotten quite a few), but I will say a few words about some of the more notable ones. In no particular order:


Fable the Third

Fable 3 (Amazon, Mighty Ape, Steam) was released a month or so ago (for PC, anyway), and I finished my first playthrough not that long ago.

I’d seen fairly mixed reviews of the Xbox version beforehand, but I was going in with fairly light expectations — I’d played Fable: TLC (on PC too, of course) […]


I’ve mentioned it before, but Psychonauts is a really really good game, and absolutely everyone in the universe should get it. (And Yahtzee agrees.)

Oh, and it’s now on sale via Steam’s Midweek Madness for US$2. So anyone who doesn’t get it is crazy. (Or already has it, or didn’t see it in time.)

And […]

Sam & Max

I’ve been meaning to post something about the Sam & Max games for quite a while now, but never seemed to quite get around to it. But I’ve recently been reminded of it, as I just received word of some great deals available briefly. So let’s get the advertising spiel out of the way first:


Steam Weekend Deal: Orange Box

I’m not going to make a habit of announcing these, but this one is just too big to pass up a comment on.

As you may or may not know, for a while now Steam have been running weekend deals, wherein each weekend they will offer a game (or sometimes a game bundle) at an […]

Prince of Persia

One of the games that I played over the holiday period was Prince of Persia (PC, Amazon) (the 2008 one, not the 1990ish classic).

Let me get the obvious stuff out of the way first: yes, it was dumb to re-use the name; yes, it’s a “reset” of the franchise (and an attempt to start […]
