Far Cry 5

Man, this game broke my heart. First of all there’s the setting. Hope County, Montana is a breathtakingly gorgeous setting, full of lovely country vistas, beautiful sunsets, and vast open fields that lie in stark contrast to the sort of…

Far Cry 5 Early Impressions

Starting out with you in a helicopter on a stormy night, talking to three other people, the opening moments of Far Cry 5 were jarringly reminiscent of Ubisoft’s other open-world shooter, Ghost Recon Wildlands. Not too long after that,…

Warhammer: Vermintide 2

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is one of those sequels which improves on its predecessor in every conceivable way whilst keeping everything that made it special intact. It’s a brutally difficult that delights in stacking the odds against you in…
