    Eets Munchies
    Well it seems that no modern gaming site is complete without a good bit of social championing, from Rock Paper Shotgun and its championing of womens rights to Eurogamer and its championing of womens rights to IGN and its championing of, umm, well yes its womens rights again.
    Now it’s entirely probable that there are other social groups that might possibly be treated in a less than favourable way, but you know, there is only so much time, and you can’t fight for EVERYONE!
    But not to worry, that leaves approximately 50% of the population of the world for us to champion the cause of!
    You give me a game, I’ll tell you why its offensive.
    YAY equality.
    To begin, Eets Munchies.
    Eh? I am sure you exclaim (after a quick google search to find out what Eets Munchies is), that cutsie puzzle game by Klei Entertainment released back in March? What could possible be offensive about that?
    Oh you poor deluded little brainwashed fool.
    For what many have taken as a charmingly enjoyable massage of the cortex is, indeed, a carefully crafted attempt at indoctrinating the user to condone the evils of imperialism!
    Ah, you see it now don’t you.
    It so obvious you wonder how “they” thought they would get away with it.
    The protagonist, a small, personable, but most tellingly WHITE character, with a toothy grin and an insatiable appetite marauds its merry way through the landscape consuming all the resources before being airlifted away to the next exploitable piece of real estate.[ATTACH=CONFIG]n892[/ATTACH]
    Being assisted in its rampage by whales (a more obvious metaphor for oil you couldn’t possibly find) and cannons the only witness to your rapaciousness the gnomes who inhabit the lands and look on in horror as you reduce their lands to ash, leaving them barren and sterile.
    The gnomes themselves with their lavish beards and hats, not to mention that not a single female gnome is to be seen, clearly are an analogy for Muslims! That flatulent pigs are introduced in the desert levels can hardly be seen as co-incidental taking into account the blatant imagery liberally spread throughout the game. [ATTACH=CONFIG]n895[/ATTACH]
    As we all know, media influences impressionable minds, and those who think that they cannot possibly be influenced, are those most at risk. Gamers tend not to be exposed to other forms of media, and so the demonisation that is endemic throughout the print and broadcast media are still not reaching what is now the largest entertainment demographic in the western world, gaming, and we can expect to see more of this sort of subliminal programming in the years to come.
    This is why its so important to take a stand against this sort of thing now.
    So in six months time when you are watching the Western lead military forces shelling Tehrans main square, Just remember YOU could have stopped it, if only you had…..

    I know, I know, It's been a while since I have had the time to spare helping the little people of the online world in their various problems, but now that what shall be known as "The Summer of Weddings" is over, I can get back to spending my time as the altruistic saint that I am.
    I hope you are all eternally grateful.

    Dear JR,

    Well I’ve recently found myself with a surfeit of spare time, and so in contrast to the wonderful weather...

    Do you wanna build a post apocalyptic city set in the aftermath of an unknown worldwide calamity which has plunged the world into another ice age?

    C’mon let’s go and play.

    Frostpunk is a small scale city builder with a steampunk aesthetic.

    Starting with a small band of survivors, you must forge a path in this increasingly hostile environment to ensure the survival of mankind, well for approximately a month. Apparently that’s all the time you need to...

    Well here in the UK, as winter throws one final attempt to solve the pension crisis at us (claims that the government have know for a month about the cold snap, but saw it as an opportunity to cull old people remain unsubstantiated), many have retreated to the warmth and safety of their gaming systems to keep them distracted, and hopefully prevent excessive burden on maternity services up and down the country come November.

    And, of course, more gaming means

    Civilisation VI
    Rise and Fall.

    Accurately reviewing big budget high strategy games is hard.
    Well it’s not digging coal out of the bowels of hell hard, but it certainly ranks up there with flicking yourself off to Holly Willoughby after you have packed the kids off to school.
    These games take a huge amount of investment in time even to scratch the surface, and flaws can go completely unnoticed for weeks until one day you suddenly notice the AI is fucked and

  • Best Humble Bundle EVER!

    Ever wanted to have a 'legitimate' excuse to purchase soft core porn games, but claim you are doing it for a good reason and not to sate your PG15 perverse sexual fantasies (C'mon. It's the internet. As perverse sexual fantasies go, these are practically a U)
    I know for a fact Belimar, our illustrious leader, is a fan of Hunie Cam (although rumours that he used the experience gained from the game to expand a underground army of CamGirls is probably exaggerated)

    So as January comes to a close, the weather starts to take a turn for the better and we all wonder if the "holiday weight" we acquired last month should more accurately be described as "weight" I take time away from my very busy schedule to help another batch of poor misguided souls.
    Your Welcome.

    Dear JR,

    I’m currently struggling to proceed in city building strategy game “Banished”, and I have no idea where
