This was a surprise present from Mrs A at Christmas and it’s taken me a while to get to it, being in the middle of my Alien: Isolation replay. I must pay tribute once again to the quality of that game. Considering I had already played it, it had the same feeling of terror running […]Read more "Video Game Review – Inside and Limbo"

It’s Halloween night and usually I watch a film. This year I decided to fire up the Xbox instead. Not often do I replay games once I’ve been through them once. The Mass Effect trilogy and Resident Evil 4 are the only ones I can think of. Something about this one made me want to go […]Read more "Game Replay – Alien: Isolation"
So, after the mammoth task of getting through Mass Effect: Andromeda over the past year and a half (trying to fit it in around work and family commitments and everything else I wanted to do with my life) I have moved on to a title that’s been waiting on my shelf since my birthday last […]Read more "This week in Hope County"
My journey through the Andromeda galaxy has finally come to an end. After a year and a half plodding along doing side quests and exploring, I finally got around to embarking on the final mission.

Here are some graphics that I pulled off an Ofcom report from 2017. I do not claim any expertise […]Read more "Children in an Online World"

The attention to detail and the depth of […]Read more "Happy N7 Day – Keelah se’lai"
It has been a long time since I gave you an update on my progress through the Heleus Cluster. Truth be told, I went through quite a long period of not playing Andromeda because there was so much else going on. I put some time in a while ago and then had a break and […]Read more "The Andromeda Experience – 8"
Had a bit of a break from Mass Effect but I’ve spent a couple of nights getting on with it and thought I would check in with another of these short posts. I decided to go back to Eos and finish things off there. I didn’t know there was anything left to finish off after […]Read more "The Andromeda Experience – 6"
Right, now I’m into the story a bit more. Having cleared out Eos and got as far as that can go for the time being, I did all the enforced conversation stuff on the Tempest and then decided to immerse myself in the next bit of the story by flying off to Aya, home of […]Read more "The Andromeda Experience – 5"
