Prison Architect Dec30

Prison Architect

As ever I pick up random games regularly, sometimes on recommendation and Prison Architect was one of them. Game play There is no way I can possibly describe just how addictive this game can be. It looks and sounds simple as a concept. However once you get going there are intricate things you...

Grid 2 Dec30

Grid 2

Games from my childhood which really stood out in my memory were Lotus Esprit Turbo Challenge and Jaguar XJ220, racing games which I spent hours and hours playing. It has been a while since I played any racing games though, discounting any driving in games like GTA, as I never did get into any of the more recent titles like Dirt or the Colin McRae series before that. Whilst I played Test Drive Unlimited 2 a lot that is certainly not what I would consider a racing game, particularly with the open world aspect and meta game for collecting various fashion accessories etc. That changed though when I joined the folks in buying Grid 2. Gameplay...

Kerbal Space Program Apr26

Kerbal Space Program

At the latest DaGodz LAN one game became the go to game in between all the others, the Kerbal Space Program. Gameplay The game is pretty simple in terms of concept, build a rocket and launch probes or little astronauts (who have comical expressions when it goes wrong) into space. However it...

Heart of the Swarm – Starcraft 2 Mar24

Heart of the Swarm – Starcraft 2

My favourite (and easily most played) game of 2012 was Starcraft 2 and so I have been looking forward to the release of the first expansion Heart of the Swarm. This weekend at DG LAN 9 was when I was able to play through the campaign for the first time. Gameplay – Heart of the Swarm vs Wings of Liberty Singleplayer The core of the Starcraft 2 game hasn’t changed. It is still the awesome real time strategy (RTS) game which was launched three years ago. The same game which has brought massive esports coverage online to thousands of viewers watching their favourite players play with passion to win massive prizes. From a single...

Bastion Mar19


Having been told that Bastion is a game which was brilliant because of its styling and story telling I though I would give it a try. Within minutes I was sucked in because of its simplicity but high quality production.

Atom Zombie Smasher Jan02

Atom Zombie Smasher

A little present from my brother (who is intent on screwing over my Project Completion resolution) this game was an instant hit for me, perfect for squashing some Zed if you have just half an hour or a rainy day to kill. Gameplay Once again a game with simple design, premise and style  makes for an enjoyable experience. All you have to do is choose your unit, point and click, then let things happen. Maybe point and click again. Oh, lots of zombies? Ok, rapid pointing and clicking! Furiously panicked clicking! ARGH! THEY NEVER STOP! … The pacing is well done, and you literally dive straight in without needing to know much at all. Of...

Plants vs Zombies Nov26

Plants vs Zombies

On a whim I decided about two weeks ago to give this a game a shot since I hadn’t actually played it, but had heard that it was worth a shot. How little did I know … Gameplay The biggest thing about this game is that the it is simple enough to play, yet you can make so many...

Osmos Nov12


Simultaneously relaxing and frustrating at times Osmos is a game of such simple premise yet with a great puzzle challenge which makes it thoroughly enjoyable.

Completing my Steam library Oct05

Completing my Steam library

Recently whilst browsing Reddit I found someone who had decided he was going to “try” and complete his entire Steam collection of games, which to some might not mean anything whilst it makes others guffaw with laughter because they know that is probably an impossible task. However for several months now I’ve remembered I have literally dozens of games in my Steam library which haven’t even been installed, let alone played. Many have been acquired in sales, but even then I’ve spent the money so should get my entertainment value from them. So I’ve decided I’m going to do it as well!

Diablo 3, a gamer’s review Jun22

Diablo 3, a gamer...

Players of the Diablo series of games from Blizzard have been waiting years for the third part, strangely I was not amongst them as I had never played the first two. However as so many of the folks in #DaGodz were planning to get it, and spend many an hour playing it, I decided I would join them and see what the excitement was all about.

That was a month ago.
