Reading Time: 6 minutes Following its 2011 predecessor, RAGE 2 is a first-person, open-world shooter developed by Avalanche Studios. The setting is your typical apocalyptic wasteland – a world devastated by an asteroid collision and now at the mercy of a violent militant group, known as the Authority. Choosing to play as either a male or female, you adopt the role of Walker, who has been raised by the Ranger Erwina Prowley following the death of your parents. When Prowley is brutally murdered, Walker becomes one of the last remaining Rangers and has to work with a series of allies to strengthen their operations and finally put a stop to the Authority.
Reading Time: 6 minutes In Dark Devotion, you play as a Templar knight, who has decided to delve into the labyrinth of tunnels and dungeons to help rid the world of an unspeakable evil. Your journey begins as you start the prologue, where a rather handy tutorial helps the player know the key features of the game yet firmly establishes that it will not ‘hold your hand’ as you make your way through the story. Hacking my way through some rather mindless enemies, I felt that this would be a game that has not quite lived up to its Dark Souls reputation.
Reading Time: 5 minutes Leisure Suit Larry has a long-running history with video games. Initially starting in the late 80’s; Larry Laffer has been squirming his way through many different console iterations trying to charm the pants (quite literally) off any hot-blooded female he can get a hold of. This has been my first encounter with Larry, and it has undoubtedly made a lasting impression. I’m a big fan of the point and click genre, so I jumped at the opportunity to play this classic series.
