Wot I Think: Unturned

I‘ve been wondering for a while what kinds of games kids who grew up playing Minecraft and Roblox would go on to make for themselves.

This Sims 4 mystery house is almost certainly haunted

Wot I Think: Kingsway

Goodness me, Kingsway [official site] is clever. It‘s clever in so, so many ways. It‘s clever in its absolutely spectacular presentation, but it‘s far too clever to let that just be a gimmick - its peculiar appearance as a mid-90s Windows desktop could so easily have been a cute idea that hid an ordinary roguelite []

Behold The Kickmen can‘t escape the problems of football games

Behold The Kickmen [official site] is an almost-football sportsball game: there‘s a ball and two teams trying to get it in each other‘s goal via tackling, sprinting, passing and kicking.

Why Nvidia is overcharging us all off, just a bit

As I was saying, Intel‘s CPU strategy has gone into meltdown. As a consequence, the cynicism of its approach in the face of weak competition - right up until AMD pulled its new Ryzen out of the proverbial - has been laid bare. But it‘s not just Chipzilla that‘s worthy of your scorn. For some []
