If you’re a PC gamer you are no doubt already familiar with Nidhogg, but our console playing friends have been kept out in the dark, unable to take part in its eccentric brand of fencing – until now. That’s right, now PS4, PS Vita and PSTV owners can impale their friends on ludicrously skinny swords, to their heart’s content!
Pregnancy is uncomfortable to “play”, but that’s a good thing. As gamers, we are more often than not taking part in a fantasy, rather than being grounded in reality. Despite some dialogue issues and a seeming lack of impact from your choices, we must applaud Locomotivah’s efforts. Lilla’s story is approached with respect and sensitivity, and while it certainly isn’t going to change any preconceived ideas you may have about abortion it might prompt you to explore why you feel the way that you do.
You’ll catch no sight of zombies in its barren arctic tundra. The only cause of death in this game is complacency. The hills you climb, the water you drink, and the wolves that stalk you in the trees could well be the end of you.
If you haven’t burned out on episodic content, and are in the mood for something different, give Majestic Nights a look later this month. With the first slice of the pie coming at you for free it’d be rude not to.
We have to reiterate that there isn’t much wrong with what is on offer here, our issue is that it is much too simplified.

Simulation game’s popularity have grown in leaps and bounds in recent years, with new professions being game-ified every week. Bus driver, forklift operator, surgery and now medieval bridge architecture.
Chess is a very old game. A game which has only been patched a few times after release and only by fans but now some die-hard fans have came up with something we’ve been needing since the 1600s. Chess 2: The Sequel.
The Fifth Day is Dayz but with robots! Instead of baked beans, we have power cells! The core concept is that you are a robot trying to survive in a post apocalyptic world by killing, hacking and crafting.
The Red Solstice should be a warning to other development teams of the caution and action that needs to be taken when your game has an overwhelmingly toxic community. These players should be put on wanted posters and rooted out before they can strangle a community as they have in Red Solstice. Once they are there, the Moderators and Developers should do their damned hardest to make them leave.
Hatoful Boyfriend is just like any other game of its genre but with a really weird twist. It features simple controls, nice hand-dawn graphics mixed with some photos, and a compelling if not bizarre story that makes good use of your choices.
