Sentinels of the Multiverse

Filed under: PC Games No Responses

Don’t worry, Baron Blade is a total pushover. So my video card died. Again. I must learn to respect lightning as it seems I live in an area very prone to thunderstorms. I looked around for games that I could play without a video card while waiting for the warranty claim to be processed, saw […]

Papo & Yo

Filed under: PC Games No Responses

Whoa, eat your heart out, Inception! Yep, this came to my attention from the Feminist Frequency videos and I eventually bought it because my wife encouraged me to do so. I was very curious about what a mature, non-exploitative take on child abuse in a videogame would play like and so put it on my […]

Anno 2070

Filed under: PC Games No Responses

The ne-plus-ultra of eco cities! Okay, so I just wanted to use that phrase once. Last year I wrote a post about I tried to play this game but failed. This year, after I complained about this on Broken Forum, someone replied that the Steam version should be fixed by now. ‘Lo and behold, it […]

Heroine’s Quest: The Herald of Ragnarok

I have real combat so I’m an RPG! One strange omission from my list of played games is the entire Quest for Glory series. I actually did play snippets of King’s Quest on a friend’s PC but I only really started gaming shortly after the first Hero’s Quest game was released. I heard plenty about […]

The Banner Saga

Filed under: PC Games No Responses

What, no hexes? Fail! The Banner Saga was a game that I’d considered backing on KickStarter but I eventually decided to wait for it to be released. When it did, its reception was decidedly mixed but after checking out its amazing art style I thought I’d give it a whirl. On balance, I have to […]

Remember Me

Filed under: PC Games No Responses

It’s beautiful Paris with augmented reality technology! Due to GamerGate, I now pay much more attention to videogames with female protagonists than before. I find that testosterone-powered male protagonists are more likely to bore me nowadays so I’m more inclined to find games that break that mold to be more interesting. Once Remember Me got […]

Papers, Please

Filed under: PC Games No Responses

Check all documents, listen carefully for lies. This game has won a ton of videogame awards and for once, I absolutely agree with the critics’ choice. I really have nothing bad to say about it. It’s a game in which you play an immigration officer who mans a border control checkpoint of a fictional country […]
