Nice to see you’ve finally arrived!

Welcome to TheLateGamer.com. The place where it’s fine to be late on playing last year’s
triple-A games, and waiting until next year to catch up on today’s releases.

Kids To Censor Themselves?

I’m an advocate for enforcing censoring and ensuring that young people aren’t exposed to materials that are deemed unsuitable for them, usually so they don’t grow up with some mental disorder. With video games, there is a big difference between a game for 7-year-olds with bright colours and whimsical characters, and an 18+ game that encourages to butcher people up and uses the acts of committing crimes as an objective.

Late McPixel Review

What can I say about a game that doesn’t have much of a derivative to it. All you do is click around the screen and watch an animation. A game that should take no more than a few hours to 100% complete, instead took me 4 years, putting me to sleep every time I booted it up. What can I say?

Late Dragon Age Inquisition Review

As with DA2, Inquisition isn’t quite like its predecessors with plenty of jarring differences but at least amazing graphics. You’d be best off thinking of this as a 60 hour dating sim in which you’re going to experience a lot of rejection, increasing the protagonist’s blue balls bursting stat.

Late Epistory Review

I got this in the recent Humble Bundle for peanuts and vaguely remember it being mentioned on the Internet when it was first released. Just don’t make the same mistake I made thinking that Epistory stands for Epic Story and also that the game would be any good.

Late Pokémon Trading Card Game Review

What I believe to be a hidden gem for the Gameboy Color system, overlooked by the regular Pokémon rpg games of the time, Pokémon Trading Card Game was a great game encouraging strategic thought development using Pokémon cards I didn’t have to pay for.

Late Dragon Age 2 Review

As long as you don’t make the mistake of going into this game expecting more Dragon Age Origins, you’ll do fine. Whilst it plays more like Telltale’s The Walking Dead, you can still enjoy a Dragon Age themed story and get a workout on your virtual legs.

Late Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry Review

Ubisoft have done it again. They release mediocre games as a main instalment, then bring out the greatest expansion packs ever. Far Cry 3, boring after Vaas dies, Blood Dragon on the other hand, action intensive and should have been the main release. Same with Black Flag and Freedom Cry.

Late Dragon Age: Origins Review

The main character is usually mute in conversations, only being sometimes heard battle crying into battle or interacting with objects. I set my character’s voice to be arrogant I believe, which just resulted in him saying over and over “Would you like a ladder, so that you can get off my back!”.

Late Mouse(s) Review – Mionix Naos 8200

When it did arrive in the post, I can only describe the next part of my experience as absolute bliss. Taking the mouse out of it’s well formed packaging, I sat it down on my desk, and ever so slowly brought my hand to rest upon it, gently caressing its curves and finally snuggling my palm into its resting position. It was heaven. All of the weight of my hand was evenly spread throughout my contact on the mouse, this is what true ergonomic design has been striving for since day dot.

Late Keyboard Review – Cougar 200K

I think someone needs to come clean with the gaming community and remind them what they actually want when it comes to gaming peripherals. Why on earth would someone want to game on a keyboard that’s just as noisy as the musical variant, being distracted by the laser light show commencing under their noise whilst spending over a £100 for the honour.

I highlight the incessant need of mechanical ‘gaming’ keyboards that have been on the market for the last 8 or so years, replicating the era of clunky keypresses of yellowing IBM keyboards.
