The Overwatch Problem

The Overwatch Problem

So yesterday I downloaded the Overwatch Beta on the PS4 and played it for a few hours. And while I had fun with it and I’m sure I’ll continue to have fun with it until the beta is up, I’m not planning on actually buying the game and I’m here to tell you why.

First, for those that don’t know, Overwatch is a first-person shooter game by Blizzard (the company behind World of Warcraft, Starcraft, Diablo and, most recently, Hearthstone). Of course, calling it a first-person shooter might make people think it’s another Call of Duty or something, but it has more strategy involved in it than CoD (which has no strategy involved) and it’s more fast-paced and fun as well.

With An Account how he was at last as strangely deliver’d by Pyrates. Continue reading “If More Things Had Titles Like “Robinson Crusoe””

Game Reviews: “Always Sometimes Monsters” and “The Forest”

I know I haven’t written a blog post in a while and I apologise. You see, I graduated from university with a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology and since then I’ve basically been working a lot. But when I’m not working I’m mostly playing video games.

I’ve gotten into this whole “indie game” and “alpha game” fad on Steam. Lately I’ve been going crazy just downloading a bunch of indie games and alpha games (I’m downloading “Project Zomboid” as I write this). The two latest ones I’ve been playing are: a “life simulator” called “Always Sometimes Monsters” and an open-world horror/survival game called “The Forest”.

Now here are my reviews. Continue reading “Game Reviews: “Always Sometimes Monsters” and “The Forest””
