Call Of Duty Advanced Warfare – The Final Verdict


Day 3/4

What, you expected me to chime in with a final opinion within a week of the game releasing? Please. Ok so my daily (ish) updates on Advanced Warfare were supposed to be leading up to a final verdict but then Christmas/life/poor online connectivity got in the way. So here it is, over two months later, the final verdict.

Far Cry 4 Review


Did you like Far Cry 3? If so then you’ll love Far Cry 4. Yeah I could leave it at that but that’s laziness even I can’t fathom but the simple fact is that Far Cry hit gold with the “third” entry in the series and Far Cry 4 does nothing except refine and polish everything that was great about its predecessor without just being the same old same old.

Advanced Warfare – Campaign Tropes & High Hopes


Day 2
Day 3/4 and I have the campaign all but completed. As I keep forgetting to do every year, this time I remembered to play on Veteran. COD is not a difficult game by any means, Veteran can at least extend the length of the story.

Advanced Warfare – That Damn Second Day


Day 1
Slightly more progress made with Advanced Warfare this evening, and with progress comes problems. It’s still good, don’t worry ’cause this ain’t Ghosts, but a few cracks are starting to appear.

Advanced Warfare – First Impressions


As seems to be in vogue these days, I have decided to split my opinion on Call Of Duty – Advanced Warfare over a few days, hopefully with a finished piece good to go by Friday when I have finally got a good spin at the online aspects of this latest entry in the billion dollar franchise. Unfortunately, launching the game yesterday took a little more out of my day than expected so I got to play a grand total of…one match. I’ll work with what I can I guess!

Go Play Your Video Games (Part Two)


Read Part One here

Once the Mario 64 buzz had subsided, it was time for a step forward (via Mario Kart 64 which still ranks as the best in the series and arguably one of the best car sims). Like many others, I awaited the arrival of what was then known as Dolphin with baited breath. Nintendo showed screen shots of this wonder console, and in a time before the PS3 and 360 well, my God it was as next-gen as we thought we would get. But then, it all went a little quiet. And what had started as this rumoured powerhouse suddenly became just another console. I went dark side, I went Sony.
