Dead Space Extraction: Hmm.
Posted at 23:01 on 10th July 2009

“Criticism written without personal feeling is not worth reading. It is the capacity for making good or bad art a personal matter that makes a man a critic. The artist who accounts for my disparagement by alleging personal animosity on my part is quite right: when people do less than their best, and do that […]

E3 press conference reactions
Posted at 22:44 on 16th July 2008

The three console manufacturers have made their annual addresses to US retail laying out their wares and plans for the rest of the year. The general consensus seems to be that this was very much business as usual, with no earth-shattering announcements. Microsoft reeled off an impressive array of third party content, all of which […]

Posted at 19:34 on 7th July 2008

WiiWare finally launched earlier this week. Good news for me, as I’d been looking for something to buy with the Wii Points I’d been sent by Nintendo Europe by way of apology after they accidentally offered the “Star Points to Wii Points” service before it was meant to go live.

Super Mario Galaxy
Posted at 01:59 on 11th December 2007

2007 has been a banner year for games. Not the best year ever, but at least the best year of this century, with each format seeing their share of classics. Having gotten out of the habit of playing regularly, I’m currently scrambling to assimilate as many of this year’s ‘must play’ games as possible, so […]

“Resident Evil 4, to sum up, is the best game on the GameCube. But it’s not just the best game on the GameCube.It’s the best game of this generation, it’s the best game- “It’s the best game.” Robert Florence, Consolevania Series 1 Episode 7 It’s easy to be cynical.

Bach FUDs Wii Shock
Posted at 19:40 on 15th May 2007

And right on cue (erm, a month after my last post) here’s a great example of Microsoft’s games people sending the wrong message. At some fundamental level Microsoft really don’t seem to ‘get’ Nintendo. Every console manufacturer likes to claim that they don’t consider the competition a threat. But even now, with the stratospheric, global, […]
