Fifteen minutes into Syberia 3, the third game of Benoit Sokal’s vision of a girl travelling to a charming world of talking automatons, you notice that something is really wrong. You think that you fell into a wormhole, went back into time and are playing a game that was released ten years ago. Lip-syncing is … Continue reading DSOGaming – Syberia 3 Review

The Warhammer 40K setting (originally a table-top game born in 1987) is one of those universally revered things; even if it’s not your cup of tea, you have to respect its history, its character, the fans, the legacy. That makes it extra embarrassing for pretty much everyone when something awkward happens or when there are … Continue reading DSOGaming – Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War III Review

After a 400-year war, Kyros the Overlord has almost united the realm of Terratus under his iron fist. But is (s)he a truly nefarious god-like entity? When is a conqueror evil? Aren’t most civilized countries on our planet soaked in the blood of their original inhabitants?

Sky Break will not rock your world, nor will it test your skills and (w)rack your brain. It’s one of those pleasant, casual, carefree action games which, were it not for the unique sight of peaceful, grazing herds of mech-ostriches, would offer a more forgettable experience.

If you are like me and immediately thought of Monkey Island’s famous insult duels when reading the title ‘Oh…Sir!! The Insult Simulator’, then you are pretty much on the money. Two lingua-dualists pick turns and choose parts of speech (verbs, nouns, conjunctions and short phrases) from a shared pool. The goal is to form a long … Continue reading DSOGaming – Oh…Sir!!
