Kelly’s Twits

Pokemon Go- not totally stupid

I’m not a Pokemon person. My computer / console gaming history started in the late ’70’s and early ’80’s, and completely missed Nintendo. And to be honest, none of the Nintendo games really appeal to me- they are just a bit too ‘twee‘

Fallout 4

Title Fallout 4 Developer Bethesda Type RPG Platform(s) XBox One, PS4, PC (reviewed on XBox) Kelly Score ™

95 / 100

 

Fallout 4 has been out for over eight months now. Even for a procrastinator like myself, that is more than enough time to formulate an opinion. So now I’ll endeavour to document […]

The Xbox One- Six months later

I received my Xbox One back in November. I have some observations to share after something approaching six months living with the big black box.

There are no where near enough good games available yet for the Xbox One. Titanfall is out, but yet another multiplayer shooter isn’t really all that appealing I expect […]

XBox One- initial impressions

I’ve had my XBox One for a whole 16 hours, give or take. So far, my experience with it is completely positive. I’ll be updating this post a bit over the next couple of days as I experience more with this Generation Eight console.

Here are some quick observations in bulleted […]

Star Wars: The Old Republic

Title Star Wars: the Old Republic Developer Bioware Type Massively Multi-player RPG Platform(s) PC Kelly Score ™ 95 / 100

Massively multi-player role playing games have, with very few exceptions, a standard motif. You create a character, complete a few “orientation” or introductory quests, and are then left to your own devices. Thousands of […]

The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim

Title The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim Developer Bethesda Type RPG Platform(s) XBox 360, PC (reviewed on XBox) Kelly Score ™ 98 / 100

I have played a few games in the Elder Scrolls series, and each successive one seems to be a little bit better- at least in my opinion. I played Daggerfall, Morrowind, Oblivion, […]

Risen: Spiritual successor to Gothic 3

Title Risen Developer Piranha Bytes Type RPG Platform(s) XBox 360, PC (reviewed on PC) Kelly Score ™ 75 / 100

Risen is an old-school role playing game that does very little to make itself appealing to the more “casual” gamer. In terms of overall characteristics, Risen is similar to games like Oblivion- but whereas […]

Bayonetta: Everything that is wrong with this type of game

Title Bayonetta Developer Platinum Games Type Action/Fighting Platform(s) XBox360, PS3 Kelly Score ™ 40 / 100

Action games are a genre that I really didn’t understand until I played Bayonetta. I could therefore say that the $60 I spent on this game was educational: I have been taught that I should not buy this […]

Wet: definition of a wasted opportunity

Title Wet Developer Artificial Mind and Movement (published by Bethesda) Type Action / Shooter Platform(s) XBox 360, Playstation 3 Kelly Score ™ 55 / 100

The title “Wet” supposedly refers to the term “wetwork”, a word commonly attributed to cold-war era secret agencies and referring to assignments involving killing so intense that the workers […]

Old-style destruction- the return of MechWarrior

There was a series of games I played many years ago. In these games, I was injected into a world where giant robotic machines cut lumbering, awe-inspiring paths of destruction through cities and each other. That was the universe of BattleTech and the MechWarrior game series, and it was good.

Unfortunately, the MechWarrior series […]
