All around the world Kinect units sit alone atop TV screens collecting dust.
We all want to love Microsoft’s motion controller, but we know that it is really just a piece of shite that we’ll never really need. Leaping about like a fairy is all well and good if you are a thirteen year old girl but not OK for a 40-year-old gamer.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution has been a long time coming. For a sequel to what was considered to be such a seminal game back in 2000, an eleven year wait is a bit too long.
I’ll be honest and say that Deus Ex wasn’t on my games radar. I played a bit of the last one back in the day, but it didn’t do a lot for me, which is weird ‘cos I was right into the whole conspiracy thing back then.
The European Gamescom 2011 expo is currently underway in Cologne, Germany.
The expo is a great opportunity for publishers to show off their tent-pole games that are being released in time for Christmas. I’m going to be adding trailers, videos and comments over the weekend as I come across them. I’m starting off with the incredible Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception demo and the trailer to Ezio Auditore’s final outing in Assassin’s Creed Revelations.
When writing game reviews there are things that you want to say that you just can’t.
As informal as a review is, some restraint is required, else it become simply a rant. That’s the origin of Vic B’Stard’s State of Play.
