Traditional long format reviews
I wasn’t prepared for Persona 5 Strikers to be such a Persona game. By that, I mean that when I heard this was a mash-up of the Dynasty Warriors combat with Persona 5.
My assumption was that it would be primarily an action title, much like the recent Hyrule Warriors franchise. Do not fall into the same assumption.
This is a lengthy Persona 5 sequel with the turn-based combat swapped for more action-oriented engagements.
When 300 words is more than enough
Guest writer and resident online multiplayer aficionado, Nina. Has taken Destruction AllStars for a spin.
Destruction Allstars is an enjoyable, well-made game. But if it has any hope of surviving for more than a few months Lucid Games and Sony need to keep nurturing and updating it.
The team behind Destruction AllStars is clearly passionate about this genre of game, so maybe there is hope for its future.
Only time will tell. Its true saving grace is that it is free this month on PS Plus, so why not give it a go.
Occasional Features, maybe off topic, maybe news, maybe opinion pieces, mostly interesting.
A few weeks ago, before I knew about DOGE Crypto the only Crypto I was familiar with was the badass little alien from Destroy All Humans. His (allegedly) life-size statue is staring over my shoulder right now.
Then there was the sudden flurry over trading Gamestop shares in the U.S. Which lead to people suddenly understanding stockmarket terms like Shorts, Bears and ‘Stonks’. Maybe not the last one.
I figured a shallow dive might be a fun feature.
Gadgets, Gifts and stuff that we like that isn't a game.
We tend to be a pack of nerds here at the Cottage. So as a slight departure from the normal Video Games and Tech reviews, I have found myself reviewing, of all things, an Everdure Force Barbecue.
Going into this Covid-free Kiwi summer I needed to upgrade my old BBQ and wanted something better than ‘average’. So I looked into various top of the line brands like Webers, Broil Kings and the Everdures.
