The 11 bestest best apartments in gaming

Rather than marvel at digital houses we couldn't even dream of owning an armoire to put in IRL, let alone the whole building, we've turned our attention to the world of videogame apartments. These chunks of partitioned living are often just modular, nondescript spaces designed to house clues or bolster the sense of people living in a city, but occasionally there are apartments which offer…

Ama’s Lullaby is a cyberpunk adventure influenced by Westwood’s Blade Runner

Show me a game in a neon-lit futurecity and I'm interested. Toss in command line-based hacking and I'll try to raise one eyebrow (nnnope still can't do it).

Have You Played… Blade Runner?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. It feels like stepping into Ridley Scott's film. Sets and touchstones are lovingly recreated. Machinery clicks, beeps, and wheezes exactly as you'd expect. The atmosphere is malevolent, and you're quickly in over your head. But wait, I say as if the headline and…

Young people. Good grief. Your ignorance is as plain as those spots on your greasy face. Don't you know anything? Can't you be bothered to learn anything?
