Well, a few thing of not much interest to anyone (edit)CIVILIZATION 5… … has been announced. Since Empire decided we should start seeing other people, Civ 4 has taken its place as my favourite of 4X game.

Mass Effect 2 Having just completed it, I’m going to give it a “good” with added “meh”. It was entertaining enough for me to finish it and was gripping on occasion.

OK, The Good Yes the CG is spectacular: The mix of real and fake actors is seamless, the world is beautiful and the scenes with the flying mountains actually gave me a touch of vertigo. Certainly benefited from all the CG touching up of […]

Fringe Fringe continues to plod along nicely. If there’s a phrase to describe the show’s narrative progress it’s punctuated equilibrium. It lurches forward with arc heavy material for a few episodes, then does it’s best to imitate the best monster episodes of the X-Files. While these are enjoyable enough, Fringe has such a good story […]
