A charming lakeside.
I wanted to love this sci-fi mystery set in 1960’s Germany but the only exceptional thing about the game is its beautiful graphics. The hand-made backgrounds and the quite intriguing – if also very over-the-top – sci-fi plot are enough to make the game worthwhile, but the gameplay is rather sloppy and frustrating.

Shardlight might not be Wadjet Eye’s brightest star but it is another solid point & click adventure. The game is set on a post-apocalyptic world so it’s rather bleak and violent, and filled with dark humour. Continue reading →
The neighbourhood is very cyberpunk.
Shadowrun was one of the gaps in my gaming knowledge. The return created a lot of buzz and surely I was interested in checking out this cyberpunk/fantasy game, especially since it’s a turn based RPG. Continue reading →
There are tons of things I like about Fallout Shelter. I adore the game and I hate the game. That often happens when something is done very well, but still quite not right. For a free2play game I can definitely recommend Fallout Shelter, it’s awesome. Especially after the 1.6 update last summer, which introduced all new mission system, making the game finally whole.

I finally had my go with the puzzler adventure classic from almost 10 years ago. I never doubted its greatness but it was nice to experience it firsthand. – not to mention to understand what the whole deal with the cake was. Continue reading →
The last year. Sorry about being lazier the further I got with the decade. But aren’t we going out with a bang? So much good stuff that I just want to weep. Fight Club and The Matrix are in the IMDb top20. Sixth Sense, The Green Mile and American Beauty a bit further down. Even skipping all these, I have a lot of issues limiting things down to 5. And I shouldn’t skip them really, they’re all great psychological movies, albeit from very different angles. Continue reading →
The third episode of the sci-fi point&click adventure was released as a standalone game. As a Kickstarter backer I got my “episode” all the same. The third part is a clear improvement in some aspects like graphics, interface and overall polish. It could be played without the earlier episodes if someone isn’t fussy about things like that, but I’d recommend starting from the first anyway. The review will unavoidably contain a vague spoiler or two concerning the earlier episodes. Continue reading →
Nearing the end… First I thought I’d only have a couple of movies for this year but looking into it a bit more I didn’t end up having hard time at all finding five (and more) suitable films for the year.
I won’t bring the boring categories back, but there’s at least Johnny Depp! I don’t remember enough about these movies, I’ve only watched Dark City in the recent years, but they were awesome back then, so I still believe them to be awesome today – and will eventually confirm this by watching them again. The movies are arranged according to their current IMDb popularity. Continue reading →
“Everyone” should have heard about Junjou Romantica created by Shungiku Nakamura. It’s the boys’ love 101 title these days. Junjou Romantica anime is currently airing its 3rd season (and I’m watching it) but earlier this year I checked out Hybrid Child which is already the 3rd anime adaptation made from Nakamura’s manga titles.
