Trojan Paws

22/07/2022

So Stray released this week. Maybe you heard? Is it the game cat-lovers were hoping for? Or is there more (or less!) to this game than the mere cat-simulator some have labelled it as?


“Fun! Fun for everyone”

15/07/2022

A little tribute to former Nintendo President Satoru Iwata, who passed away 7 years ago this week.

Game Past?

20/05/2022

Following the full reveal of the new PlayStation Plus service, this week we’re talking subscriptions. We’ve never had so much choice, but is it possible to have too much of a good thing?


Let’s get physical

13/05/2022

This week we’re talking Xbox server outages, DRM, and digital ownership woes. Many say physical media is the answer, but is it really that simple?

06/05/2022

I’m in a gaming funk. Access to thousands of games and there’s nothing I want to play…


There’s an app for that?

29/04/2022

So you want to be a pirate, eh?

E3, or not E3, that is the question

01/04/2022

A perfect 10?

Are you part of the problem?
