Here’s another thing I was very glad to see not be terrible. Continue reading “Ben’s Best of 2015 – Star Wars: The Force Awakens (no spoilers)”
Bloodborne is an incredibly rich experience, with an atmosphere so thick you can almost feel the fog seeping from the sides of your TV.
Escape rooms are like real life video games. If this doesn’t make you want to go out and do one right now, you’re reading the wrong blog.
Yes, I know, the PS4 came out in 2014. Luckily, this is my blog, and I make the rules.
I’m so glad to be writing this.
Greetings! My, it’s been a while, hasn’t it. I’ve managed to clear out the cobwebs and blow the dust off this place, and it seems to me that some new words are in order.
Ok, sure, so this is supposed to be a gaming blog, but that doesn’t mean this article isn’t going to be worth your time. In fact, if you think that, then you’re exactly the kind of person that needs to read it. Put it this way – if you don’t at least skim read this, you’re literally making the problem worse.
There is a gaming link, of course, but we’ll get to that later.
After watching my significant other polish off the campaign from Bioshock: Infinite last week, I found myself itching to play the DLC, which I’d hitherto ignored on the basis that I thought it’d be mediocre at best. The first episode of Burial At Sea was, sadly, almost exactly that. If you ignore the plot, it’s basically just the combat from Infinite transplanted into Rapture, really nothing more than a change of scenery.
But Episode 2 is something else entirely.
Fair warning: I’ll be discussing plenty of mechanical spoilers here. I’m not going to discuss anything story related, but if you’re really keen to stay spoiler free then I’d recommend finishing off the episode before reading on.
Yeah, so it’s been almost three years to the day since I last posted one of these. I’m hoping this’ll make up for it. It’s a mix between two of the best songs from The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time.
If you’ve never played Ocarina, you might think ‘oh, that’s a nice piece of music’ – but if you have, it’ll send shivers down your spine. I’ve recently been filling the gaps in my personal gaming history, and am right in the middle of Ocarina on the 3DS. I’m nowhere near finished, but I’m really enjoying it so far.
I always thought my friends and I were fairly nice people. This weekend, thanks to plenty of sunshine, slightly too much beer and a simple box of cards, I’ve realised that we’re actually a bunch of antisocial, deviant, foul-mouthed sociopaths, with looser morals than Harold Shipman.
