The representation of a familly dealing with the protracted illness of a child is well done, but wasn't as interesting to me as the exploration of faith that was inextricably woven into it.

Michonne's main problem is sadly the most inescapable one: she's in yet another fucking zombie story.

The Flame in the Flood is beautiful, desolate, and it will kill you again and again.

The Division is a very interesting game, with soaring highs as well as flaws, and the best multiplayer for years.

Changing aesthetic from 'Dry Urban Dilapidation Chic' to 'Irradiated Sea Fog Realness' is refreshing.

9 / 10 - Overwatch
May 27, 2016

The more you play Overwatch the more you realise Blizzard thought of basically everything you might criticise it for.

This is a Batman game where it's kind of more fun when you're not Batman

Mankind Divided hasn't lost the soul of a Deus Ex game, but it doesn't hit the heights it's reaching for.

The Turing Test can be quite accurately described as Portal meets Soma, exploring similar ideas of AI and selfhood. The trouble is, I suppose, that both those games did each aspect better.

The reality is that the games haven't changed, but you might have.

7 / 10 - The Bunker
Sep 20, 2016

A wonderfully tense and oppressive atmosphere let down by the restrictions of live action interactivity.

It has the air of young men putting on silly costumes, not knowing what they're doing, and trying to style it out.

8 / 10 - Virginia

As a whole Virginia is wonderfully cinematic, and a fantastic story to inhabit as it unfolds.

8 / 10 - XCOM 2
Oct 6, 2016

XCOM 2 is more tense and thrilling than a turn-based strategy has any right to be. There are some great additions to the original gameplay, but the port to console is an imperfect one.

9 / 10 - Thumper (VR)
Oct 10, 2016

Thumper is a great rhythm action game, with strong visuals, fantastic design, and more speed than Keanu Reeves on a bus rigged to explode.

Skyrim Special Edition on console looks lovely and runs well, and with all the DLC included it's a great option if you aren't fussed about mods. If you are fussed about mods you might be disappointed. Or already have a PC.

10 / 10 - Dishonored 2
Nov 14, 2016

Dishonored 2 takes everything you loved about Dishonored and improves upon it without becoming bloated. It's a beautifully designed, layered game, stuffed with hidden gems and secret stories. Also you can stab people in mid air.

8 / 10 - Watch Dogs 2
Nov 18, 2016

Watch Dogs 2 is missing a bit of refinement, and has had issues with multiplayer, but joining DedSec is still a riot and a half. It's high energy fun with engaging characters, and you can make an entire city your playground.

Final Fantasy XV is about adventure and excitement. There are oddities, and it's not the FF you're used to, but it's a good time with some good boys, and has an unexpected emotional resonance to it. Sometimes it seems like it shouldn't work, but it does.
