Dragon Age II Retrospective

So we are just over one month away from the release of Dragon Age: Inquisition, one of this year’s most hotly anticipated titles and really one of the only major releases not pushed back till the new year, which has meant that I have already gone back and recreated my perfect playthroughs for Origins and II and built the Thedas that I am ready to help defend as the Inquisitor in this new entry in the series.

On the surface Shadow of Mordor promises to be just this, combining action gameplay with a solid role-playing system in an open world? Sounds fantastic! This is one franchise that has been long overdue a decent game that we can all sink our teeth into. Read more …

Contrast

Let’s cast our eyes back to the heady yesteryear that was 2013. The PS4 was on the horizon, and the gaming community waited with baited breath to see what delights were in their future. Unfortunately, the launch line-up was a little anemic to say the least.

However, there was one game that stood out from the crowd of sequels and mediocrity, and that game was Contrast, a third-person puzzle platformer which incidentally is also available on Xbox and PC. Read more …
