theHunter: gone Wild

It seems there are now two versions of the excellent PC hunting game theHunter (now re-named theHunter: Classic). There’s now a new version called theHunter: Call of the Wild, which appeared in the spring of 2017 for retailers. They appear to be identical, and it seems that theHunter: Call of the Wild just has a […]

Titan Quest: Ragnarok

A decade after the most-excellent game Titan Quest, all of a sudden comes a large expansion Titan Quest: Ragnarok. It’s out now on Steam and switches the Mediterranean setting for the Northern… “realms of the Celts, the Northmen and the Asgardian gods”. Sounds good, very good. My review of Titan Quest Gold Edition is here. […]

The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind – PC Gamer review

PC Gamer has a quite positive review of the MMO The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind… “… one of the most encompassing and charming repositories for great stories I’ve played in a long time. Morrowind is an essential excursion for those of a certain gaming vintage, loaded as it is with reverence for that 15 year-old […]

After Nehrim, Enderal

The Nehrim guys have their huge Skyrim total-conversion out, and now have it pretty much nailed down. It’s called Enderal, is free, very well reviewed, and as pretty as you’d expect. Released last summer it’s now available in a full English version, which is currently patched to a 1.1.9 release — it’s now reported to […]

Skywind preview

Loving what I’m seeing of the Skywind world (a Morrowind total conversion mod for Skyrim) in this late-autumn 2016 preview. It appears that 2017 is the team’s “big push” year and the voice-acting appears to be well underway too. I’d love to think this might be “main quest playable” by early 2018, but that’s just […]

“My god, it’s full of bugs…”

Oh dear, The Escapist review of the new Mass Effect: Andromeda game is in… “Unfortunately, Andromeda misses the mark” The story… “quickly devolves into something that’s going to sound all too familiar to fans of the series”. “… the game’s writing seems oddly out of sync, varying from quests that feel agonizing and meaningful to […]

Titan Quest: 10th Anniversary Edition

One of my all-time favourite games Titan Quest (2006) (my review), recently had a 10th Anniversary release. This mega bufferooni of a release was slipped out in August when I wasn’t paying much attention to such things, and I’ve only just discovered it. The new edition is on GOG.com and apparently also on Steam (I […]
