Have You Played… Resident Evil?

There's a lot about Resident Evil that is laughably bad and has always been that way. "Master of unlocking." "Almost a Jill Sandwich." But there's a ton that's been updated since its early polygonal days on the PlayStation. Its current remastered version on Steam is the best way to play it. I still haven't finished it.

Feature: Space accounting school was full

Have You Played… Space Pirate Trainer?

The drones. The drones never stop. An endless parade of mindless lasers, twirling through the sky in patterns imprinted on my eyelids. Every day I face the same barrage, every day one step closer to my dreams. Those dreams used to be of endless sky, of tearing across the void with wild abandon, dual pistols at my side. Now I just want to leave the…

Have you played… Graveyard Keeper?

I have mentioned Graveyard Keeper before because for a few weeks it consumed me -- and every so often it still does. In it, you're hit by a car and wake up as the keeper of a medieval cemetery. It's like a version of Stardew Valley that Noel Fielding would tell you he played to make sure you know he's all goffic and weird. In…

Have You Played… Bully: Scholarship Edition?

Rockstar get a lot of praise for their big creaking flagships, Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption. But I’ll be honest, y’all: neither series really grabbed me. I toyed with many a GTA, and I dabbled a bit in the rootin’ tootin’ wild west of RDR. But I didn’t finish any of them, eventually growing bored every time. A Rockstar game I did finish,…

Have You Played… Artifact?

This is the one that stings the most. The commercially-unsuccessful game that most makes me want to stand in front of unwelcoming crowds, pound on my chest and scream about how wrong you all are. Artifact doesn't deserve to be the butt of people's jokes. It doesn't deserve to be the butt of anything. It's one of the best card games out there.

Feature: Point and click toward the end of the world

Have You Played… Apocalipsis?

Apocalipsis, or Apocalipsis: Harry At The End Of The World to give it its full and proper name, is like walking through a series of medieval bestiary paintings. Poor old Harry sees all sorts of nasty sights on his Orphean descent into Hell to bring back his beloved, and the ones in that header image up there aren't even the half of it. Before he…

Feature: Is it even possible to make a pun out of "Kakuro"?

Have you played… Kakuro?

To me, Sudoku will always be the inferior number puzzle. Kakuro is every bit as challenging and twice as pretty. Not too long ago I installed a Kakuro app on my phone with 3000 unique Kakuro to solve. To date, I've completed 7 of them, because I skipped straight ahead to the Extreme section, and I'm going to steadily complete all 600 of them in…

Feature: Fighting back

Have You Played… For Honor?

When For Honor first pummelled its way onto the parapets of PC gaming, it was frustrating. The blow-by-blow of this ahistorical brawler presented a tough fighting game with all sorts of dastardly antics thrown in. Ledges, spikes, traps, ladders. But the gamey infrastructure around it was a disaster. Disconnections, lag, crappy matchmaking, and that all-too-common stinginess when it came to post-match rewards. A rusty pair…

Feature: The best gift I ever bought

Have you played… Stardew Valley?

My partner doesn't play that many games. She's probably got more hours logged into Bubble Shooter than I've put into Rocket League, but besides that, nada. So the opportunities to tempt her into watching a YouTube Let's Play with me back when we first starting living together at university were quite few and far between. But one of the very few successes was when I…

Have You Played… Black Mirror?

No, not that Black Mirror, the stupidly successful TV show created by former UK games journalist Charlie Brooker. The gothic horror adventure game Black Mirror. Well, gothic horror is perhaps a bit strong for this slightly ropey point-and-click style puzzler. Sure, it's set in a spooky mansion in the middle of the Scottish highlands, but its dead-eyed cast of stiff geriatrics are more comical than…

Have You Played… The Crimson Room?

Before escape rooms leaked into the dread jelly of everyday crises we call reality, they were confined to the flashy realms of Newgrounds and other free game websites. But the one I remember best was The Crimson Room, much more than its clue-hunting follow-up The Viridian Room anyway. Or, heaven forbid, The Blue Chamber.

Have You Played… Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon?

That's the name for this sort of thing, isn't it? Though it needn't be confined to just Kevin Bacon. If you're good with names and faces and you're after a fun little game to play with a friend or two to pass the time, "Six Degrees" is perfect. Here's the best way to play.
