ico is a gorgeous atmospheric adventure puzzler, where cooperation with your seemingly helpless but actually quite powerful companion is essential. a metaphor for battling depression, you have to desperately hang on to the girl whilst banishing the gathering black clouds of miasma with your crude toy sword. kids will love this game i think, i would love to eavesdrop a couple of 7 year olds attempting to solve these puzzles.

bondo is a very satisfying little merge puzzler in the vein of 2048, match three or more numbers on the rotatable tiles to change it to one tile of the next number up to six at which point you get a bomb tile. match three bomb tiles and you clear some free space. hex merged and merged++ are nice variations on the theme, hex merged coming in the lightest at a very keepable 18mb. it also has very relaxing background music.

'if you could a have any superpower what would it be?'
'all of 'em!'
A riot of colours, saints row IV is like a playful great dane cyber puppy licking your face with magnetism and ridiculousness on a sunny Sunday morning.
Mechanically it's a GTAV vs Superman vs Destroy All Humans! hybrid, this game really throws the kitchen sink at it gameplaywise, and turns it up to eleventystupid.
Whether you are bouncing up a skyscraper, hacking a gun shop, stealing a UFO, or fighting a super cyber monster, this game's acid dreamlike quality and lol sense of humour, will have you hooked from the start;
(oh look, there's a guy dressed as an energy drink dancing with a guy dressed as a hotdog in a high end clothes shop...)
and it's great to get around when you can glide like a flyingsquirrel...
As the President of the USA/ Head of a Gang, kidnapped by aliens, trapped in a matrix like simulation...
...there is a lot to do...
and if you get bored of that,
the reggae channel is awesome.
a brilliantly bonkers take on the crime sandbox genre.
