I write about video games, I live in beautifully sunny South Africa, my cats are delightful conversationalists and I'm current;y obsessed with collecting Combiner Wars Transformers. Life is fantastic right now!

8.5 / 10.0 - Pokemon X and Y
Oct 21, 2013

It's the same old Pokemon that you know and love, but shinier than ever thanks to the graphics. X and Y doesn't shake the age-old formula up when you examine it closely, but it really doesn't need to as it shifts the franchise into a more modern age.

Super Mario 3D World is vibrant, fun and reaches a new level of excellence for the franchise, creating the right kind of cat-astrophe.

Lego Marvel Super Heroes might just be the perfect game to keep kids occupied these holidays, as it's crawling with familiar faces, voices and some downright charm. Just be cautioned however, as several flaws may make you angry. And you wouldn't like this game when you get angry.

Might and Magic X: Legacy is an uncompromisingly old school trip into forgotten territories. It's a risky move, but it's one that should attract plenty of gamers who want less new school action and a more cerebral roll of the dice in their RPGs.

It's one of the best Tomb Raider games ever made, and it'll live up to the Definitive Edition moniker for those gamers who never set foot on Yamatai Island last year.

6.9 / 10.0 - Thief
Feb 24, 2014

Thief is a game, that despite all it's good intentions, will alienate long-time fans. And the cookie-cutter generic gameplay won't do much to attract new fans either, as this franchise once again slips into the forgotten darkness of the night.

South Park: The Stick of Truth is more than just a faithful adaptation of a cult TV series. It's a benchmark for translating a favourite property into a video game format, something that other licensed properties could learn from. And it's also the funniest game on the market.

Infamous: Second Son wears its rebellious heart on its sleeve. Brimming with attitude, unrelenting and massive to take in, the game never forgets the most important aspect of game design however, and remains consistently fun.

8 / 10.0 - Luftrausers
Mar 31, 2014

Luftrausers is the very definition of replayable insanity. It's difficult,intense and feels smooth when you master the controls. And yet you'll come back for more in a new and improved Rauser time after time, with the constant flow of action never getting old.

While Episode 1 doesn't manage to live up the heights of the previous Bioshock games, Episode 2 closes the book on the series that not only extends the world of Bioshock, but also creates the sweetest farewell to a beloved franchise.
