They had an infertile rhino on yesterday. Supervets is the best programme EVER.

This isn't a particularly original title, but the level of craftsmanship in its components makes it something more than just another hack & slash RPG. Somewhere down the line, Loki cast away the clichés of its genre and became a work of art.
September, 1983. Millions of unsold copies of E.T., Atari's holy grail of bad taste, were allegedly buried in a landfill site somewhere rather sandy in New Mexico.
Initially you'd be forgiven for thinking that the mechanics of gameplay are rather intricate, but this really isn't the case. The story's a standard good versus evil affair, and the in-game dress-up option is nothing beyond an annoyance.
I like to think of myself as a nice person. The kind of girl who holds doors open for old ladies and who feeds the birds at the park. Even better, I'm sane to boot. So imagine how cringe-worthy this title must truly be to have incited me to do the following, barely an hour ago. Please note: this is a true story. Those of you with a nervous disposition may wish to refrain from reading this.
Rayman 2, predictably, is the follow-up to the interminably dull Rayman, the latter being a very simple platformer aimed at children and with a less than hard difficulty rating. One would naturally assume that this sequel would be very similar in terms of game play to the original, but the similarities are superficial. Rayman 2 is an epic, multi-world, truly 3D beauty of a platform game that bears little resemblance to the original. All levels are fully 3D and immersive, and the difficulty level...
It is rare that I find a game so utterly soul-destroying that I start deliberating the passing of time, but those ninety minutes I spent completing this lackadaisical creation are minutes that I will never live through again. In a way, we're all dying, as every passing moment brings us closer to death. The one inevitability in life is that we will all die, and it's for that reason that every moment is precious. Life is what you make of it, whether you live it, or waste it. When I played t...
Having spent a wholesome summer in the country on your grandfather's farm as a young child, singing out of tune with some random girl or other and being chased by chickens, you later inherit this farm in young adulthood and return to the village where you spent that lazy summer. Being welcomed by the Mayor, who makes the ominous statement that the village as a whole has decided that you have three years to return the now run-down farm to its former glory (but without stating what will happen if ...
Flicky is one of those intriguing titles that makes you wonder, "What the heck is all this about, then?!". I do not know what the heck this is all about then, to be honest, as the story is barely apparent during play, and glossed over somewhat fleetingly in the manual. This game has no need of stories or other trifling incidentals such as that. It has something far more important - actual gameplay. Yes, back in the golden age of gaming, developers used to be able to get away...
There is something remarkably profound about the scenario of an endangered creature struggling to survive. One can imagine it speeding through deserts or forests, running for survival, working on adrenaline and primal instinct to out-run its pursuer against all odds and make it to safety and freedom. One can picture the desperation of this animal and perhaps begin to understand how it must feel, through our own similar experiences in life. The bandicoot is one such species struggling to survive,...
Oh, the sound and smell of the sea. Beautiful! Walking across the beach, sand between your toes and down your pants, hair blowing in the gentle coastal breeze as you check out the local talent and make your way to the nearest generic beer outlet. You can't beat a beach holiday. Well, actually you can beat a beach holiday by doing just about anything ever if you're me, but some people like that sort of thing. There's certainly no denying that catering for those who DO like that sort of thing is a...
Game: Gregory Horror Show: Soul Collector (PlayStation 2)
Posted: August 15, 2007 (09:32 PM)
It's not easy, being Death. As if having the voice of a 1980s throwback gameshow host - or constantly wearing your nation's flag atop your head (Swedish, naturally) - wasn't bad enough, there's also the small matter of collecting lost souls to contend with. Rather than going out there and doing the dirty work himself, The Grim Reaper's only option is to employ the services of a single being, trapped amongst the peculiar cubic guests in the hotel from Hell.
Firstly a disclaimer is warranted. Barbie Game Girl is not, strictly speaking, a game. See, the word "game" generally brings connotations of something which is fun and which you play, and with Barbie Game Girl you do neither. There is nothing fun about this and the playing experience is non-existent. Instead you sit around bashing the buttons in a desperate bid to get Barbie to JUST FUCKING STEER, with your mood becoming increasingly dark and irritable. Eventually, rainclouds form ...
Game: The Muppets: On with the Show! (Game Boy Advance)
Posted: August 08, 2007 (04:41 PM)
Dear reader, please allow me a moment of misty-eyed recollection. Let me remember the times I spent as a young child - blonde-haired, blue-eyed, grinning broadly, full of life and hope for a bright future, untainted by the rigours of corporate society as we know it today - watching my favourite programmes on television on a weekend evening. Such happy memories - Dukes of Hazzard, Grandstand with Des Lynam, and my favorite programme of all - The Muppet Show. Those brightly coloured bundles of sla...
Game: Sword of the New World: Granado Espada (Miscellaneous)
Posted: July 23, 2007 (06:23 PM)
Time to phone your friends and family one last time and wave goodbye to your social life for a good long while: there's a new MMORPG in the shops, and it's a biggie.
Choosing to play as either a Japanese or American pilot, you'll follow the tale of a single air force member from start to finish. The single-player game involves following a clever mission-based campaign mode, fighting the real battles of the war in the South Pacific.
It's the mediocre games that are destined to be forgotten about, confined to the great recycling centre in the sky, leaving a trail of average reviews in their wake. Sadly, King Of Fighters XI is one such game. Check out our review to find out why.
Behold, the clip-clopping of hooves. Elegant society ladies will recognise this sound from Ascot, on a race day associated with the wearing of hats and the frittering away of millions of pounds on a fancy steed for the stables. The rest of us may be more familiar with this sound as being from Monty Python and the Holy Grail - the bashing of coconut husks together. Either way, this sound is synonymous with horses - perhaps necessary to feel the true atmosphere of racing ponies. It is this sound t...
My personal fears are sporadic, but unusual. I'm not afraid of death. I'm not afraid of heights, insects, spiders or pain. I'm not scared of ghosts. However, I am afraid of clowns, dolls, enclosed spaces... and anything that looks like it should be alive but isn't (think: ventriloquists' dolls and mannequins). We are all different. Our hopes and dreams, our feelings, and our fears. None of us are clones and none of us think the same way. To frighten your audience, you must understand your audien...
If you persevere with the single player racing mode, you'll find beautiful scenery, gravity-defying tracks, and uber-fast speeds. If you're unlucky, you may also encounter another issue - crashing into the barriers occasionally causes the player to become impaled right through the scenery.
Like Ivana Trump, Skies of Arcadia really does have it all. If it were appropriate to give Christmas presents to games, I'd have a mightily hard time trying to pick something out for this one. From the epic storyline to the orchestrated music, the beautiful, huge world just waiting to be explored and the myriad of side quests and bonuses that add to the playing experience, Skies of Arcadia is un underground classic for good reason. This is one of the few relatively recently released games that h...
