    Oli’s Monday Mii-Time #24

    How do you value a game? This is the question that has dominated my thoughts of late. For you see, when ruminating over what to write as a column this week, I decided upon noting my favoured games of 2013 thus far. However, this list basically consisted of...

    Passion. Passion is sorely lacking in the gaming world of Oli J right now. And with good reason. This has been a disappointing gaming time for me, with GTA V being delayed, as well as Aliens: Colonial Marines and Sim City being buggy, defective messes which...

    Sometimes, the universe throws together things in one big soup, in order to mess with us. Think of it as the Perfect Storm, where certain elements collide to create havoc in a way that beggars belief. A physical re-enactment of Murphy’s Law perchance....

    Journalism can all be about coincidence. This was not a reactionary piece. This was something I was already researching and talking about writing, but then things happened. The company I was talking about came out with a game. A game that does things that...

    Good day dear reader. Now first, a confession. I bait and switched you last week by suggesting I was going to inform you of my top 4 games that I was looking forward to this Gaming Season, but then only told you 2! It was a despicable overt method of...

    We’re 3 weeks into 2013 now. How is it for you? Pretty darn tooting? Lovely stuff, glad to hear it. But don’t get too settled in just yet, as right around the corner we have the Spring Season of gaming. When the big AAA titles are unleashed once...

    I keep saying this, and will until the dawn of time, but I bloody love a good city-builder. And I think I know why… it’s all about my God Complex. Having the power to create, tinker and manipulate life in the form of infrastructure be it as a...

    Oli @ Eurogamer: Sim City

    Oct 3, 12 • Reviews, StoriesNo Comments

    I’ve talked a lot about my passion for City-Builder games, having grown up on the likes of Theme Park and Dungeon Keeper, and heralding titles from Tropico 4 to Simpsons Tapped Out for their use of city-building mechanics. But only one franchise moulded...

    So yes, the Nerfed crew went to the Eurogamer Expo in London Earl’s Court and naturally, while we were there we played some games. Well it is kind of our duty to you, isn’t it? But before we tell you about all the glorious games we played (and the...

    Recently, I upgraded my old HTC phone to a brand, spanking new (although not that new as no. 5 was released today) iPhone. Now, yes, I realize that some of you out there get a little angry over the whole Apple thing, so I’ll just wait while you let your...

    The biggest event in gaming is upon us, with E3 arriving with a whizz and a bang and a whole bucket-load of gaming goodness. So, naturally, Geekyly was flown first class, complete with strippers and champagne, to witness first hand all the console coolness...

  • What’s this? SimCity 5 announce trailer? WHA?

    Mar 7, 12 • News, Videos1 Comment

    That’s right, it seems one of My Favourite Games is getting the common practise of a franchise reboot! SimCity (also mooted as SimCity 5) is coming! And it looks very impressive… While the trailer does point out this isn’t “in game...

    Nov 30, 11 • Reviews3 Comments

    Hello, good evening and welcome to 16 Bit Memories, a look back an era where 3D was done by the Duke and the closest you got to Skyrim was subscribing to Rupert Murdoch. Lately I have garnered many strange looks due to my choice of favoured title this prime...
