    I bought my mum a copy of Little Inferno and she was burning stuff for weeks. Perhaps she's a secret pyromaniac.

    Yeah, Wings of Liberty was embarrassing in a bunch of ways, but the gameplay was novel for me, so that was something. I liked Heart of the Swarm a little more because although the plot and dialogue...

    Well, the Viking age was way earlier and "Danish countries" is a bit wrong. The peoples at the time (around a thousand years ago) were (in Swedish) Daner, Norrmän, Svear, Götar, Guter, all having...

    Yeah, the bar for "best Blizzard writing" isn't a high one to clear, but big, dumb and overwrought as the WC3 story and characters are, they're also fun in a way I don't think they've managed since....

    We definitely weren't very peaceful up until then though. It was only after getting attacked by everyone and their Russian uncle and losing Finland that we started to realise that maybe a (then) poor...

    I was in the mood for some RTS so bought and played the Legacy of the Void campaign for StarCraft II and found it kinda boring and joyless. It's a tremendous achievement in some ways and you can...

    It was the opening of a Viking museum, so I guess it's just a prop. And yeah, king at the moment, but we have a crown princess lined up for the throne, if we haven't gotten rid of the royals by then...

    Most of my friends don't play games, the ones that do are all into casual mobile games or consoles these days. People I know online and have played with in the past are mostly playing MMOs or MOBAs,...

    Sorry if I'm being daft, but this seems a little insane to me. Don't the Tories already have a majority of seats in Parliament? Do they need more, for some reason, or is it about extending their term...

    I realised three Terminator films have gone me by, so I watched:

    Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, or "What if there was a really sexy lady Terminator?" I can see the benefit of making a sexy...

    Haven't seen it in games, but whenever "Swedish" people pop up in movies and TV there's a good chance they'll have a German accent, and they're most likely either a blonde bimbo or a tech geek.
