– Nick Palmisano “We monitor many frequencies. We listen always. Came a voice, out of the babel of tongues, speaking to us. It played us a mighty dub.” – William Gibson, Neuromancer. Rise of the machines So mighty is the ‘dub’ of Call of Duty: Black Ops III that I barely have time to notice just how mindless a game about actual minds can be. The latest offering from publisher Activision and ...[Read More]

-Aaron Birch Let me get this straight right now. As a child of the 80s, there’s only one true Transformers, and that’s Generation One. No Beast Wars, Energon, Armada, and certainly not the total bag of sweaty balls Michael Bay has created. Oh no. There’s only one Optimus Prime, and Megatron is the real Decepticon leader (and that’s the guise that turns into a bloody great h...[Read More]

The Walking Dead has blown up in the past few years. From being a humble comic series about the apocalyptic adventures of Rick Grimes, the title has become a full blown franchise with two TV series and a bunch of games to boot. Perhaps one of the strangest tie-ins to the show is The Escapists: The Walking Dead. Apart from having too many uses of “the” in the name, the game is a mix of ...[Read More]

I...[Read More]

– Stefan Bradley Splatoon has been out for months now, but Nintendo’s online multiplayer shooter has become a service rather than a simple standalone release, with regular free updates since the game’s launch in May, so yes, I am relevant. Thanks. It’s still amazing to me and others that Nintendo not only released an online multiplayer focused title, but a shooter of all things. Also it’s a ...[Read More]

– Nick Palmisano We’ve probably all had pets that died. Dogs, goldfish, hamsters, whatever your fluffy poison, at some point life catches up and we lose our companion.
