Zen Pinball Review: Excalibur

Excalibur is a table that is probably a perfect example of Zen’s problem with table design: it’s a colourful contrasty miasma of fancy artwork, and trying to figure out where the hell your ball has gone is an exercise in frustration. The fun comes after long hours learning the playfield and you can intuit its […]

Zen Pinball Review: Tesla

OK, so this review will be very short, ’cause I’ve got half an hour’s play time on this table, and I still have yet to start a lit round. It’s been 100% random ball flipping so far, without any special rounds being activated. What do I have to do, you guys? First impressions are solid. […]

A Short Crysis Review

Far Cry was awesome, totally cool, with a wicked setting and solid game beneath the unparalleled graphics. Crysis is the sequel, the game that many people – myself included – had firmly in mind when building a new PC not long ago. Read on for my review… And please, beware of spoilers!

Xpand Rally – A Brief Review

It’s a little known secret that I love racing games. Not just any kind of racer though, but the rare breed that strikes a balance between simulation and arcade action.

Well… Lesse… I run the site Megadriver.org and do my best to update it every decade or so. NFG Games has helped inspire me to actually publish some long lost articles and reviews I have written over the years. With that in mind, here is the first of what I hope to become a regular […]

Blasts from Ye Olde Pasts!

These posts are really old, but it might be worth revisiting. They came to the fore again curing the conversion of the old archives. There’s some pictures (most with boobies) of the lovely new Psikyo Visualworks Poster Book. A Herzog Zwei review. Herzog Zwei was, if you didn’t know, the first ever Real Time Strategy […]

Nintendo’s DS: An NFG Review

After writing up all the things that went wrong with the PSP a few people asked what I thought about the DS. The bottom line: Nintendo’s DS is far better designed and constructed. Never mind the specs and features and games, the DS hardware isn’t as flawed as the PSP. Read on for details. As […]

Sony’s PSP: Reviewed

So the PSP has launched and after a crazy adventure I managed to score one. Four days later the lineup for Nintendo DS units at my local Toys R Us was five times longer than the lineup for Sony’s PSP. A harbinger of the future perhaps? For all the fervent interest in the PSP it […]
