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.

Late GTA V Review

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.

Late Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor Review

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!

PC vs Consoles: Part 2

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.

Late Poker Night 2 Review

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.

PC or Console: Which is best for gaming?

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.
