Doom (PS4): COMPLETED!

Usually, for me to enjoy a first person shooter, there needs to be some added mechanics. Some puzzles. A story. Something more than just mindless shooting. When I think of games from the genre that I’ve liked a lot in the past, I think of stuff … [Continue reading]

Lego Dimensions: The Lego Batman Movie (PS4): COMPLETED!

This is the first of the “needs Lego Dimensions but is actually a complete adventure in itself” Story Packs we’ve played (we as in, my daughter and I). We’ve the Ghostbusters and Fantastic Beasts ones lined up too, but decided … [Continue reading]

ugvm Podcast Episode 20

Eventually we managed to record an episode, as one member of the team (as a game, try and figure out who) was having issues with their microphone. I mean, it's not like they're an audio engineer or anything. In Episode 20, deKay, Luffer, Tim and … [Continue reading]

Kirby’s Adventure (Switch): COMPLETED!

There’s no way it has been nearly six years since I last completed this, surely? That’s absurd. I’m sure I complete it every few months. The Diary, however, Cannot Lie. Yes, it’s easy. Yes, I had 45 lives left at the end. … [Continue reading]

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero (Switch): COMPLETED!

ugvm Podcast Episode 19

It's a brand new year which means we've changed nothing. We do, however, tell our listener all about our personal Game of the Year 2018 picks. It was harder than we expected but not for the reasons you might suspect. Before that, though, deKay … [Continue reading]

Into the Breach (Switch): COMPLETED!

I’m not sure following Mario + Rabbids with another, but totally different, turn based strategy game was necessarily the best way to get started with Into the Breach. For starters, moves are done in the opposite order (baddies first) and baddie … [Continue reading]

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle (Switch): COMPLETED!

No, I didn’t think a crossover between the worlds of Mario and the Rabbids would work either, but somehow, it does. Perhaps it’s partly because the gameplay doesn’t borrow from either party, and Mario + Rabbids becomes its own … [Continue reading]

Membrane (Switch): COMPLETED!

Membrane is an unusual platform puzzle game, where your controls are jump, shoot blocks, and shoot triangles. You can use the blocks, which stick together, to build bridges, act as conduit between electrical pads, become walls, barriers, ladders and … [Continue reading]
