2017 was a bit of a hit and miss year for gaming, I felt. Games tended to be rather good… or rather rubbish. However, I do feel as though it was a good final year for the 3DS and PC, at the very least, with games from both dominating in our Top Ten for 2017.

With the UK release of Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon last week, I thought I’d take a quick look back over the OST of Pokémon Sun/Moon and see if I could nail down a favourite ten. Which I admit now, I found somewhat difficult to do, as I didn’t think much of the Sun/Moon OST was that standout, compared to earlier games.
With the release of the latest Pokémon games yesterday, Ultra Sun, I thought I’d have a look back over Pokémon Sun and Moon, released just over a year ago.
Well, this year, myself and Steve decided not to go the Shadwell DLR route in order to get to the event (probably because we missed… our Lewisham train), and so ended up having to go into Central London and back out from there – however, despite it requiring two changes and getting off at Wapping rather than Shadwell DLR, the journey was comparable to what we’ve done before. Slightly quicker, possibly, this time we were there before 10am. However, we (once again) had the same problem with regards to signage – once out at Wapping station, there was nothing to direct you to the event. However, as it was literally a straight path down Wapping Lane, almost, it was fairly easy.
The latest in the Ubisoft “Tom Clancy” franchises, Ghost Recon: Wildlands sends you and 3 AI or human teammates to the lawless narco badlands of Bolivia. Continue reading Ghost Recon: Wildlands (PC)
Hmm, the previous Sims 2 game on the DS I played, I wasn’t too impressed with. However, this one promised to be something different, so I thought, why not? It remained to be seen if it was worth the experience, or if the game should be… cast away.
I have to say, I actually found coming up with this list a little bit tricky – mainly on account of me feeling that 2016 was a bit of a lacklustre year as far as videogame releases went. However, after a lot of soul-searching (and playing the games which did come out in 2016), I have managed to nail down a top ten games, released in this last year.
I would like to point out that I did receive a Steam Key for the game from the developer, for the purposes of reviewing this game.
Many thanks to Gritfish for providing me with the key.
Well, I’m always partial to a puzzle game, I must admit. However, this game looked to be slightly different from the usual platform-type puzzle games I play, with the introduction of gravity as a mechanic alongside the otherwise fairly simple physics of the game. This has the effect of making the game a sort of blend between the traditional sliding block puzzler game, and a platformer, and I have to say, it works fairly well.

Developed by a new Czech based studio (Hangar 13) and published by 2K Games, Mafia 3 is an open world action game set in a fictional version of New Orleans (New Bordeux) and revolves around the protagonist Lincoln Clay and his quest for vengence.
