Gaming Frustrations with Assassins Creed Brotherhood

11 Aug 2021 4 minute read 0 comments bengy

  So, I think I'm about a decade behind everyone else with the Assassins Creed franchise... A few years ago, I had a look in at the original Assassins Creed, but I had found it to be crazily dated, despite being intrigued by the story itself! In t...

Disco Elysium: PC Game Review

8 Aug 2021 6 minute read 2 comments bengy

  As an old school gamer, there are many games that are released these days that feel like the gaming equivalent of fast junk food. Pretty looking, but ultimately shallow experiences that are nothing more than glorified testosterone fantasies......

Thoughts about the newest Humble Drop and Historical Listing (up to July 2021)

29 Jul 2021 5 minute read 0 comments bengy

July 2021 Humble Bundle Choice   Phewph! Another month, another Humble Bundle Choice drop... and my Steam list of shame gets longer again. I had managed to complete Control in the previous month, so the list is shorter by one game. But, now I'm...

Fixing some weird BSOD problems....

20 Jul 2021 3 minute read 0 comments bengy

  There is nothing more heart-breaking than getting a steady round of BSODs whilst you are hoping to spend some time gaming. An evening of gaming turns into a much less fun evening of poking around on internet forums and playing around with the dr...

Switch vs steam deck!

17 Jul 2021 3 minute read 5 comments bengy

I don't know if every other gamer in the world was also captivated by launch announcement of the handheld Steam Deck yesterday. I'm a crazily pro-Pc gamer, and so the idea of being able to play a good chunk of the indie and...

Defeating the Steam backlog....

4 Jul 2021 5 minute read 0 comments bengy

  As many gamers know, the biggest and baddest boss in gaming is the dreaded game backlog. You buy games on sale, or the get airdropped to you via Humble Bundle and before you know it... you have about a 1000 or more games of which very few have b...

Thoughts about the newest Humble Drop and Historical Listing (up to June 2021)

30 Jun 2021 12 minute read 0 comments bengy

  This month's (June 2021) Humble Choice drop might be one of the least exciting ones that has happened in the last few months. Still, at such a cheap price, I can't complain that I'm getting at least two games that are already on my wishlist on S...

Mechwarrior 5 (PC Game Review)

29 Jun 2021 8 minute read 3 comments bengy

  Mechwarrior 5 was released on the Epic Games store over a year ago... and as a point of pride (and unwillingness to have too many place for my games to reside...), I'm a loyal Steam fanboy since the Half-Life days when it was released as a glor...

Elven Legacy (PC Game Review)

27 Jun 2021 6 minute read 0 comments bengy

  Elven Legacy is a pretty old game now, released in 2009 by 1C and published by Paradox Interactive. It is an unashamedly old retro style game that tries to emulate the older gamer's nostalgia for the turn based hex games like Fantasy General an...

Cat Lady (Mobile Game Review)

21 Jun 2021 4 minute read 0 comments bengy

  An unusual review today for me, this time it is a game that is on the Android platform instead of my preferred gaming PC platform. Well, there is a reason for that... I'm looking for decent travel games for my kids to play over the summer holid...
