Editorial | Stop and smell the roses.
By Sam Coles: As I have said before, as I get older my gaming choices tend
to take a slower pace. Now this is nothing to do with my reflexes being shot,

down and zone out where I ...

Editorial | John Marston - Outlaw to Gentleman (spoilers for RDR 2)
By Sam Coles: Red Dead Redemption II is one of if not my favourite game of
2018; check out my review if you haven’t. It has given me a new outlook on John

really feature the...

Half-Life Review - "They're waiting for you Gordon..... in the test chamber".
By Sam Coles: To say a game had an impact on the industry as a whole may

Editorial | The horror of war in video games.
By Sam Coles: War has been depicted in video games as far back as I can

Shenmue I & II HD Review - I understand the influence but it's tedious.
By Sam Coles: Nostalgia it’s one powerful drug, I say this as it applies
