Darren's review of The Talos Principle intrigued me. Even if the game had turned out poorly, a philosophical puzzler from the studio behind Serious Sam was something I just had to see. Fortunately, it's good. Eight-out-of-ten...more
Don't worry, that's the only time I'll do that with the title. Couldn't resist. I miss my old name and avatar :( No regrets at all though, just a little melancholy. Goodbye you handsome devil. May Chist carry on the legacy of...more
