Days Gone (PC) Review

Days Well Spent


HIGH Being surprised by a horde whilst exploring a mineshaft. Yikes!

LOW The forced stealth missions feel outdated.

WTF Deacon’s starting bike runs out of gas in about three minutes.


Everspace 2 Preview

The original Everspace – which I Did Not Review back when it came out – was something of an oddity. A space combat roguelike, it inserted some pretty stunning production values into a subgenre that, at the time, was largely confined to low-budget indie projects. We got the gorgeous vistas and exciting dogfights of a modern Freespace successor, but folded and fitted into a digestible run-based structure.


Looking Back: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey (2018)

I’ve never been an Assassin’s Creed fan. From the start, the series has always felt too bloated and full of busywork, and the premise of reliving past lives through DNA reconstruction (because DNA records every minute of action and every word of every ancestor’s life, I guess?) never gelled for me.


Watch Dogs Legion Review

Resistance & Revenge Without Retribution

HIGH A unique and lengthy list of playable characters.

LOW The story suffers severely with no central protagonist driving it.

WTF The quirk of “Dies Randomly”


Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Review

I’ve Been Through England Like A Norse With No Name

HIGH It scratches the exploration itch like few open-world games can.

LOW My base PS4 can’t handle it at times.

WTF I really need to stop romancing almost every character I talk to.
