๐Ÿ” Review: Rainswept "A Breezy, Narrative Driven Adventure" ๐Ÿ”Ž @Rainswept_Game #GameDev #IndieGame

Game Title: Rainswept
Platform Reviewed: PC (Steam)
Rating: Ice Cool
I’ve always enjoyed playing a solid graphic adventure that’s driven by narrative and doesn’t rely on pop culture references or obscure puzzles to move forwards, and Rainswept is just that. By no means perfect, it does, however, take an approach that, whilst dipping into the sentimental, talks about heavy topics with a light touch.

๐Ÿ‘Š⚔️ From the Arctic Archives: Slashers The Power Battle "Dead Online But Still Worth A Bash Offline" ๐Ÿ‘Š⚔️ #GameDev

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On
Due to the number of games we receive for coverage in the Games Freezer, it’s sadly inevitable that some slip through the glaciers.
In the Arctic Archive feature, we re-visit titles not covered upon their initial release to see how they fare down the line.
Price: £5.19
Status: Early Access
There’s always an oddly sad shelf life to online games, especially ones that don’t sell well upon their initial release. If a game is pretty much purely online-only and the fanbase just isn’t there for whatever reason, games become obsolete sometimes weeks and even days after launch.

๐Ÿ•น️ Britt's Amusement Arcade Memories Amidst A Flooded Flat - Video Games Memories ๐Ÿ•น️ #RetroGaming #Arcade

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On
There is an undeniable connection for a lot of people to some form of gaming, no matter how distant or seemingly inconsequential.
A moment that I found really funny (in hindsight) was a few years ago in my old flat, my girlfriend woke me up at three in the morning because the bathroom ceiling was gushing with water (pinch me) and so I pegged it upstairs to wake up my upstairs neighbour (a guy in his thirties) who immediately ran down to my flat to see the damage. We headed into my living room to grab a load of towels to stem the flow, all in a complete frenzy due to the level of water coming through.
Amidst all of this, as we were running back to the bathroom, he stopped and pointed at something on display in our living room and said, “Is that Scramble? Wow, I had that when I was a kid, haven’t seen it in years!”.
Naturally, I walked over to him and filled him in on the finer points of our gaming collection until my girlfriend walked in and said, incredulously. “Umm….can you talk about games after we’ve stopped our bathroom flooding?”
Obviously, I split up with her on the spot.

๐Ÿ‘พ Steve @GAMETelford Talks To Us About Dressing In Lycra, Pong Machines & Chip Buttys - Video Games Memories ๐Ÿ‘พ #Retrogaming #GamersUnite

Within the gaming community, there are certain people that really stand out as ambassadors for the video games medium and I think today we are lucky enough to have someone with us who gets the idea that video games are all about having fun. 

Our guest today runs the amazing @GAMETelford  Twitter account and manages to combine that sense of fun whilst also doing a day job at GAME in Telford.

The Twitter account is one of my favourite accounts on Twitter and is always guaranteed to raise a smile due to the amazingly talented Steve acting out skits on a weekly basis. 

The amount of effort that must go into the account is astounding and I am really looking forward to today's Video Games Memories with Steve so as we can see what makes the great man tick...

Let's get started with a few questions to provoke the nostalgia gland in Steve's video games brain...

It was a simpler time. But a frustrating one. Before the internet ushered in a glorious era of cat memes, trolling and post-pub online shopping sprees, everything happened at a slower pace.

๐Ÿ’™⚽ Why I Love Football Video Games "It all started in a Fish & Chip Shop"⚽๐Ÿ’™ #Retrogaming

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On
It all started with an arcade game in a Fish & Chip Shop in Enfield.

The shop was called the Sea Shell Fish Bar and the arcade cabinet was TEHKAN WORLD CUP
After witnessing someone complete the game whilst I was standing in the shop queue with my dad one Friday night I was never the same again. 

I was obsessed with football video games from that point onwards and more specifically I was obsessed with the quest to find the best football game out there.

A game that aims high but unfortunately ends up feeling like a cancelled late-gen PS2 title that was bought, polished and released two generations too late.
Void Studios’ first release, Eternity: The Last Unicorn (E: TLU) came across as sweeping and majestic in not only it’s trailers but also through various blurbs and descriptions (not helped by the mention of ‘Elderly Scrolls’ in the latest trailer, curiously re-named ‘Addy Scrolls’ in-game). Of course, this isn’t a game that can compare with Bethesda’s behemoth titles, coming as it does from a small, new studio.

✍️๐ŸŽ™️ Britt Interviews: Simon Meeks (The Secret Experiment) ๐ŸŽ™️✍️ @Simon_Meek @TheSecretExp @BrittRecluseuk

The Secret Experiment created one of my games of the year for 2018, the wonderfully twisted, abstract and also BAFTA-winning Beckett.

Ever since playing the game, I’ve kept an eye on the company and the man behind it, Simon Meek. Keen to see what he came up with next.

To my surprise, it wasn’t a video game at all but an experimental book entitled Marnie Wakes which consists of 32 cards to be read or ‘performed’ in any order.

I’d never come across anything like this with the exception of William S Burroughs own experimental ‘Cut and Paste’ style of literature which eventually gave us Naked Lunch, and so I was intrigued.

Although at first glance, there are comparisons to be drawn between Ape Out and Hotline Miami, within a few moments of gameplay, it’s clear to see that it isn’t really ‘apeing’ it at all, and it’s all the better for it.

Parties are fun. I know it, you know it.

Rockstar-turned-agony uncle Andrew WK knows it. "When it's time to party, we will party hard," and all that.

However, as you turn into a late-thirties curmudgeon, like me, you notice that when other people are having parties and you're not, it grates a lot. 

You start asking yourself why they can't keep the bloody noise down, it's nearly eleven o'clock, and other things your eighteen-year-old self would weep at hearing.
