  • LocoRoco 2

    Here with a wiggle, there with a bounce. LocoRoco 2 has you bouncing all over the screen and laughing while you do it. Can the second instalment of this bit of Japanese oddness be as good as the first? The graphics are simple yet very well realised. As a wiggly blob of substance you’ll be…

  • Passive Aggressive

    In the world of the internet there is so much to fill your time with. From Chuzzle and Peggle to Twitter and Facebook. I’ve found something new to fill those procrastinating hours with though, PMOGs, or Passive Multiplayer Online Games. These have been around for a little while, but they seem to have somehow totally…

  • I Quit!

    Just over a month ago those are the very words I uttered to my boss. “I quit and here’s my two weeks’ notice” have got to be the most satisfying things to say to an employer when you’re not terribly happy with your job. I was scared as hell considering my contracted notice was 4…

  • Rise of the Argonauts

    Jason and the Argonauts. A story that has been told and retold so many times and in so many ways. From the classic Greek tellings to Ray Harryhausen and his stop motion animated monsters. Now we have Jason and his Argonauts at our fingertips as a game. The first thing that struck me about the…

  • Happy Birthday to Me!

    So today is my birthday. Before you ask, yes I’m older than you and no I won’t tell you how old I am. As I can never be sure what I’ll get in the way of presents for my birthday, I always make sure to get myself that one extra special thing that I super…

  • New Year Resolutions

    It’s that time of year again, New Year’s Day. Most of you though are probably talking in whispers and nursing a serious hangover. Maybe last night you too found the invisible champagne before the night was over. No matter how you’re feeling today you will have likely made some resolutions for the coming year. Now…

  • Glamour Gaming?

    As unusual as it may sound to anyone who knows me, and maybe some who don’t, I picked up the current issue of Glamour Magazine on Tuesday. Now my main reason for stopping in the WHSmiths to pick up a magazine on my way home from work was because my DS had run out of…

  • PC Gaming Anyone?

    All the buzz this month has been about all of the console games coming out. Besides the consoles there have been 3 expansions for MMOs coming out this month also. Everquest 2 released The Shadow Odyssey, Lord of the Rings Online release The Mines of Moria and World of Warcraft released The Lich King.  Luckily…

  • Living in a Wasteland

    So, we’ve had Fallout 3 for a few weeks now and everyone I’ve talked to loves it. I have read comments on reviews here and there and I’m surprised by their disparaging nature. The most common complaint seems to be, “It’s just Oblivion with guns.” If that’s a bad point then I think I must…

  • Mirror’s Edge

    A game that isn’t about fighting, but is all about running away. Add in a bit of hand to hand fighting and a little gun toting and you might just have the perfect game on your hands. Well I would all hope that’s the case, but my idea of paradise may not be the next…
