It’s not that I’ve been putting off this late review, but that I’d forgotten all about bothering to write it up. Basically this GTA 4 rip off didn’t just leave a lasting bad impression on me, but that it was also so boring that I failed to commit much of it to memory.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.

So we take the lore of Lord of the Rings, we add a brilliant new storyline, we then drop Batman Arkham combat system into the game and just for good measure, create the Game of the Year edition with all the DLC and goodness and sell for practically pennies to gamers. Yes, please!

We all know that PCs are more powerful than consoles but the key word here is optimisation. Optimisation is the process of checking and altering a game to ensure it runs on a certain platform as expected. This costs the developers and publishers a good chunk of their budget by having to run test after test ensuring each stage of the developed game works on different hardware, and its easier to optimise for two consoles, the Xbox One and the PS4 than rather a million combinations of components. If games were only ever created and optimised for consoles, it would quite frankly save developers time and money, hopefully invested back into making the game even better.

This is where it all began, my plunge into the murky depths of addictive gambling. I lost everything, I should really be ashamed of myself, knocking back shots in a smoky room with the lads, but I regret nothing. The companionship the game offered was worth it, and I would do it all over again.

Having played consoles all my life, I made the transition from the Xbox 360 to becoming a serious PC gamer over 3 years ago, having spent about £1700 in total on the original pc and on upgrades since. Over those 3 years, I can confidently say at my own expense, amongst all the butt hurt this may get from the PC community, that I have not once received a return on investment and it’s only been a world of problems.

I pre-ordered the Pip Boy edition of this game, having been so impressed with Fallout New Vegas. November came, my package arrived, I opened the box, a choir sung as I equipped the Pip Boy, installed the game on my space scrutinizing SSD, then didn’t bother to play until late January.

Have you ever heard of the BIG BAD WOLF, because you certainly haven’t heard about this one. Prepare to be shocked and moved by another Telltale classic as this adult fairy tale drags you kicking and screaming through the filth and dirt of this not so happily ever graphic novel adaption.
