Tom Reviews – Masters of Anima

Passtech Studio’s third release, Masters of Anima, is an impressive and immersive experience. The graphic style is charming and colourful, the gameplay is relatively fluid and the voice acting is fine. But at least they put in voice acting! The story isn’t half bad either, although relatively simple in nature, it doesn’t fill out with […]

William Reviews – Titan Quest

What does a game critic have to work with? Graphics, sound design, gameplay and story are the corner stones of what we work with… So what do we do when we’re presented with a travesty that has nothing good to say about any of that? We get to rip apart a game that probably took […]

Problem was, that was it. After about 30 minutes, you’d have gotten used […]

Ben’s not cheating… just using the available resources! | A Piece on Macros and Gaming

In the past few weeks, I have been playing RuneScape once again, partly to fuel my nostalgia (I used to play the game a fair amount when I was younger), but also because I enjoy procrastinating way too much. If you’ve not played RuneScape in any way at all, you will find that it is […]
