Having a scientist Dad, Lucy Orr grew up close to CERN and FERMILAB. Although surely exposed to high dosages of radiation, sadly her mutant talents never manifested, so she had to resort to playing MUDs, programming BASIC and reading comics. Now an expansively tattooed lecturer in digital arts and animation, she finds enough time to review games in between petting ferrets, drinking cider and listening to pop punk.

BioWare – Dragon Age: Inquisition

Dragon Age, Inquisition: Our chief weapons are...

Game Theory Well done Bioware, you've obviously resisted any Borg-like assimilation into EA and have listened closely to the criticisms of Dragon Age II and its claustrophobic narrative. Suddenly, I’m feeling good about starting my epic RPG battle with rebellious mages and old gods. I’m in this game for the long haul. Be warned, any …

Divinity: Original Sin

Divinity Original Sin and Wasteland 2 reviews: Turn-based gaming's NOT DEAD YET!

Game Theory It seems it’s taken Kickstarter to revive the turn-based strategy RPG, especially as the big game developers trip over each other to mishmash genres into huge titles like Destiny, so that everything seems have been turned into a shitty FPS.
