Pendragon review

It's a relief to know that some life-or-death battles where the fate of the nation is in the balance can be attempted a near infinite number of times. A complete cycle of Inkle's turn-based strategy meets Arthurian storytelling, Pendragon, can be wrapped up pretty sharpish if you're on the lowest difficulty and aren't getting too lost on the map. From the south coast of Wales…

Feature: Is this real life?

Podcast episode 109: the living a normal life special… live!

This week, we at the Electronic Wireless Show were digital innovators and did our podcast live and on camera as part of PAX X EGX. It went really well and there were no slight technical hitches where my camera kept resizing itself on screen for a bit near the start. Our theme was simulation games, partly so I could talk about The Sims a lot,…

Watch me interrogate a teenage perv in cyberpunk detect ’em up Gamedec

For the week that's in it, and this week has huge gaming digi-vent PAX-X-EGX in it, Gamedec has a free demo for you to try. Which I have, in several times. Gamedec is, y'see, a) a detective game that is b) a text heavy RPG without combat and c) offers multiple routes to solutions. As a Venn diagram of my interests, it's almost a perfect…

Feature: Some place for cowardice

I like everything about No Place For Bravery. Except the combat.

I've been banging my head against the PAX X EGX demo for No Place For Bravery for a while now. It's a very stylish action RPG where you, a warrior with adorable stick-thin legs holding up a big meaty-boi body, are out to rescue your daughter Leaf from grim monsters. You get to execute your enemies after defeating them, and lots of blood gets splashed…

Feature: Take the bunny out of the box

The free demo for Unpacking is good enough to make you enjoy moving house

There are two stages of packing for a move, as everyone knows. The first stage happens when you have loads of time before you have to leave, and is when you box things up in a way that makes sense. You slowly wrap up all but one of each piece of crockery in old wrapping paper and copies of The Metro, and put them in…

Watch the Foundation devs show me how to play their game competently for EGX Digital

It is no secret that I both really love early-access medieval city-builder Foundation, and am also not very good at it. Luckily, I was able to wrangle Polymorph Games' creative director Philippe Dion and community manager Andy Ashton to show me how it's done, in a combined interview and let's play for EGX Online.

Great big gaming digi-vent PAX X EGX kicks off today

Fellow nerds, rejoice!

Starting right now today, Saturday the 12th you'll have nine full days of your favourite gaming shows, but from the comfort of your home!

Feature: Print the myth

Immortals Fenyx Rising is like if Assassin’s Creed had a Zelda baby and Ubi got custody

I'm going to get this out of the way, because every outlet with a hands on preview of Ubisoft's action-adventure Immortals Fenyx Rising (which used to be called Gods & Monsters) is going to say it somewhere. Immortals Fenyx Rising is a proper Breath-Of-The-Wildalike. It's one themed around Ancient Greek myths, yes, but you've got yer horses you can tame, yer open world to explore…

Feature: Blood for the blood god

Paradise Killer review

There are horror games like Agony that are pretty fixated on the idea of the intersection of sex, demon worship and horror being solely on the corner of Lazy Gore & Torture Rd. and Fannies With Teeth Ave.How shortsighted they are proven now, when a neon-saturated open-world murder mystery set on a tropical island in a different reality manages to do sexy ritual blood sacrifice,…

The Sims 4 is having an extremely normal one over its Star Wars DLC

The Sims 4 is once again courting (mild, predictable) controversy, this time because of the upcoming Star Wars(TM) Journey To Batuu game pack. The DLC itself doesn't arrive for another few days (coming to stores near you on Tuesday the 8th), but Simfluencers like Plumbella have posted preview impressions of it that aren't glowing.This has not improved the mood of a vocal section of Sims…

Podcast episode 108: the movie tie-ins special

This week the podcast moves out of Nate's dad wheelhouse and into Matthew's film wheelhouse. It's a bumper and bumpy ride this week, as we discuss video game adaptations of them there Hollywood talkies! This does end up involving quite a lot of Star Wars chat, because there are so many Star Wars games. Tangents this week include Nate going on about Gimli a lot,…

Feature: 90s kids, memories

Remember how great ASCII art used to be in game guides?

Back in the old days (10+ years ago), guides weren't a thing that websites had a dedicated writing team for. Instead, they were written for free by absolute heroes who toiled away for months on end, updating their guides to new versions until they had cleared it to 100% and documented everything, entirely in their spare time. Go to sites like NeoSeeker and GameFAQs and…

Feature: Time and memory are slippery things

Tell Me Why review

If you've played Life Is Strange or Life Is Strange 2, you probably know roughly what to expect from Dontnod's new story-focused adventure about about small towns and intense familial relationships, Tell Me Why. However, whereas LIS focused more on the teen experience of these themes, Tell My Why feels more like it's been made for grown-ups - or at least us as grown-ups and…

Rejoice! Absolute classic citybuilder Pharaoh is getting a remake next year

It seems a developer has managed to leverage two bits of my Ancient Egypt-related childhood nostalgia in one go today. Triskell Interactive and publisher Dotemu used an animated trailer that reminds me of famous Val Kilmer musical Prince Of Egypt to announced a 2021 remake of absolute stone cold classic citybuilder Pharaoh. Well played. Pharaoh: A New Era was revealed as part of Gamescom this…

Bridge Constructor: The Walking Dead exists, but mostly in live-action trailer form

What's more stressful than constructing a shonky haphazard bridge? Why, constructing a shonky haphazard bridge while zombies attack, of course! Developers ClockStone and publishers Headup Games revealed Bridge Constructor: The Walking Dead today at Gamescom Opening Night Live, with a live-action teaser trailer and so little else that the Steam store page just has screenshots from the production of that teaser trailer. Cliff notes are:…

Unknown 9: Awakening is a brand new game that already has a big weird expanded universe

Unknown 9: Awakening is a newly-announced action-adventure game from Reflector Entertainment that already has an extended universe oven fresh and ready to go. All we have of the game right now is a teaser trailer, so we have no idea how it'll actually play when it's out. We do know that the protagonist is Haroona, a young girl from Kolkata in India who we are…
