Games Review [PROVISIONAL]: Assassin’s Creed Origins (PS4, 2017): Something borrowed, something new

October 26, 2017

Assassin’s Creed Origins is a greatest hits of modern action-adventure game design. In seeking to update the series’ ageing core mechanics and design, Origins looks to its genre stablemates to see what they’re doing and where it can’t subtly imitate them, it copies them brazenly instead. What surprised me the most about this smash-and-grab design philosophy […]

Video Games Review: Mass Effect: Andromeda (PS4, 2016) isn’t great, it’s just good and that’s okay

March 29, 2017

Mass Effect has been a series on my personal review Bucket List for quite some time.

Having finally crossed this particular item off my bucket list, […]

Video Games Review: Horizon: Zero Dawn distills the best parts of its many influences to create something truly amazing

March 2, 2017

During my first six hours with Horizon: Zero Dawn a phrase appeared in my head and got lodged there, as phrases like to do when you write for a living. The phrase in question was “This is once-in-a-hardware-generation stuff.” It stuck with me as my playthrough progressed, and it wasn’t until I’d been away from the game […]

Video Games Review: Dishonored 2 (PS4, 2016)

November 22, 2016

I was in the minority when the original Dishonored came out back in 2012. When it seemed like the entire world was throwing roses at the game’s feet, I found it to be a competent if uninspired homage to the Thief series with a few superpowers thrown in. Dishonored 2 is certainly a better game than its predecessor in many ways, […]
