Happy 2015! But is it? Not so far, judging by the faces Marsh and Chris pull at Game of Thrones, while Graham falls asleep at Elite’s space-wheel. Sadness, but hurrah for The Two Toms, who bring the new year cheer from Invisible Inc and Dragon Age 3.
Plus! That which lies halfway between GORE and a GNOME, what you get if you smash open Tyrion in Viva Westeros, the Alien: Isolation spin-offs we most desire, the Gone Home spin-offs we most desire, our favourite dismemberments, when bombs go bad and the Western’s influence on games.
“That’s money, Gaynor.”
- Invisible Inc is stealth XCOM, but nigh-on impossible from the sound of it.
- Elite: Dangerous makes Graham’s laser sleepy.
- Elite: Dangerous makes Chris deploy his hardpoints.
- Dragon Age: Inquisition has great arguments, too few pliant lesbians and crummy combat.
- Telltale tell the tale of the game of the Game of Thrones, and not terribly well.
- Freeman’s Mind is made by Ross Scott, and his Game Dungeon series features one video on Tyrian, a shmup packed with funny sci-fi writing.
- Hoplite is a great game for your Apple Mackintosh Portable Communications and Computing Device Pocket Edition.
- How Invisible Inc handles failure, according to Tom F.
- Top tier goblin-kicking simulator Dark Messiah of Might and Magic
- Chris writes about Red Dead Redemption for Edge
- Winchester 73, a film about a gun
- Kotaku’s compilation of Vlambeer protoypes, including JW’s personal project Western Hour inspired by High Noon.
