Preview – Majestic Nights

Majestic Nights by Epiphany Games is odd. From the hands-on time I’ve had with the title, I don’t hate it, but don’t particularly like it either. It presents an interesting concept, and tries to add action elements into a point and click template in clever ways, but it fails to successfully tie them all together. In addition to the bugs I’ve encountered (which are to be expected from a beta build), there’s also problems in its design that prevented me from enjoying the chapter I played through as much as I should have. For context, I played through the game’s […]

Community Report: EB Expo 2014

EB Games put on the newest version of their games Expo this year, starting for most on October 3rd, and running through until October 5th. I went along to do coverage for Save Game, but the truth is I would’ve went regardless. The first time I went was Expo 2012, and due to not being in the neighbourhood last year, this was my second chance to attend. I can’t compare with how it might have been last year, but there was a definite shift in atmosphere over that two year period. The early throw at the event felt empty in […]

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor – Review

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is probably the best LOTR-themed game in recent years, possibly since the tie-in game for Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. It steadily improves as a game through play, strongly conveying the growth in power of the player’s character Talion through play as well as story, and in a most welcome change, it exercises moderation in how it touches upon the lore that surrounds Middle-earth. While one of the key draws for LOTR games is being able to explore the environments we’ve seen in films or read of in the books, the word judicious doesn’t come to […]
