Risk of Rain
Ah, hm, hello from space. It is cold here and I have died many times, but something awful keeps drawing me back to life. Also there are lizard men and jellyfish and big robots! It's basically heaven. So pleased you could join me.

Bye for now

Hello - Darksiders 2 Collector's Edition
Yes yes it's been a while hasn't it? Hello. I'm sure you enjoyed your time off from reading our horrible words but now they're back, forever. You can't escape all the words, because there's always one faster than you. They lied to you, they all lied. Something something segue into Darksiders 2.

Rummaging in the attic
Moving house involves a lot of sorting. Rummaging through everything stored in boxes, unearthing long dormant things and feelings that scurry over your skin as you sneeze. Here are some things I found from the past while moving. Electronic Entertainment what? Never heard of it

Fez, the era of co-operation and the meta-game
When you play the meta-game, everyone and no one wins, and also everyone and no one loses. Fez, then, a game about a little man with a hat, is more than just data on your hard drive. It's also about co-operation and community. The playground of the digital age or some crap. And a little hat.

One Moment - Baten Kaitos
And suddenly it's 2005. Everything you have accomplished has vanished and now you are a child or happy or some other terrible thing. On the up/down side, Baten Kaitos just came out and you've been immersed in it for hours. Do you hear me? Immersed. Listen, it's ok for me to talk about this again so soon. Shut up.

Tweethrough - Mass Effect 3 opening
Re-live the opening hour of Mass Effect 3 vicariously through 140-character dumps. It's what the internet was made for! Join me on a journey involving moustaches, lips gloss and the hunt for a hat. It's a space opera, everybody!

One Moment - Journey
A moment that stays with you, a photograph floating on the pool of your brain and other such arty imagery. In our new feature, which will take the internet by storm, we remember a bit or a part of a game that has stayed with us. Just one bit, a short little memento. A momento. It will take the internet by storm, did I say that yet?
