Review: Far Cry 4

farcry4

This week I got to play a game that I had been looking forward to for many months, Far Cry 4. I couldn’t wait to try out all of the new attack tactics I’d heard about and most importantly, ride some elephants. Here are some of the new features that stood out to me while playing.

Some retro discoveries made while moving house

I’m currently in the process of moving out of a house I’ve lived in for nearly 25 years. Over time, many varying consoles and games have come through and made their mark.

The other day while cleaning out the corner of a cupboard comparable to Narnia, I came across this wonderful box.

An early look at Dead Island 2

Dead Island 2 is on its way! From German video game developer Yager comes the sequel to the widely loved/hated zombie FPS, Dead Island.

While I definitely enjoyed certain aspects of the game, I had a few problems with Techland’s Dead Island (and in turn, Dead Island: Riptide). Before the original game’s release, we saw the beautifully heartbreaking trailer which showed the reversed, slow motion demise of a little girl and her family being ambushed by a horde of zombies. I remember seeing it everywhere simply because it was making so many people cry. As far as trailers went, it was stunning and memorable. Unfortunately the game itself (in my humble opinion) did not recreate such emotions.

Have you heard about: Nippy Cats

Full disclosure: this post is about cats. I’m not going to disguise it. It’s a cutesy, fuzzy post about a game…about cats. If you’re part of the .05% of internet that doesn’t do the cat thing, or a cat was thrown at you when you were a child, or you like dogs, then turn on your indicator and start merging because this is the last exit before Naww-ville. You’re welcome.
