**Top Secret – We’ve Moved!**

Due to secret agents infiltrating our previous hideout, Ramshackle Thoughts has had to relocate our base of operations. Our new base is bigger, better, and more shark-and-snake-trap-filled than ever before! That should make those dirty Cabal spies think twice. Unfortunately,  this has meant that we’ve had to shut down our communications network for a short time, to avoid any information falling into the hands of the good gu- I mean, the enemy! That meant no […]

A Mollusc Amounsc Us – Octodad: Dadliest Catch

Hey guys! Let me tell you about the most exciting, innovative and downright fun game you’ve never heard about! It’s called Octodad: Dadliest Catch, and you play as an undercover cephalopod trying to raise a family while keeping his true nature under wraps. Hahaha, how quirky! …wait, what do you mean, been out since January? …and it was a freeware game in 2010 as well?

Some Ramshackle Thoughts on… Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor

He towers over me, eight-feet of heavy muscle crammed into a case of scarred, grey flesh. He sports a nasty burn on his face (a gift from me from our first encounter), and a gilded, crown-like helmet (a gift from his superiors, after our second). He leans down heavily on his crude blade, pushing my own honed edge closer to my throat. “Gravewalker,” the Uruk Captain says, “perhaps this time you’ll have the sense to stay […]

I Return to Ramshackle Thoughts

Words How Do They Work

WORDS. HOW DO THEY WORK? Hello, lovely readers! As you may or may not have noticed, it’s been a while since I updated here. A long while. Five months to be precise. That’s far too long, though there have been reasons for the absence. Regardless, I will be rectifying that from now on! First though, let’s talk about what I’ve been up to since I’ve been gone, because gosh darn I pay for this space […]

Ghost Ship – At Sea with AC4: Black Flag

It was inevitable. Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag had me piloting Edward Kenway and his crew through the perfect blue waters of the Caribbean for days, and it was only a matter of time before I just had to go for a swim. Unfortunately, this little aquatic jaunt turned out to have a profoundly disappointing effect on my immersion in one of my favourite games from 2013.

New EVOLVE Gameplay Video is YouTube Technowizardry

Evolve Banner

I ranted about EVOLVE only a few days ago. To me, it looks like the cat’s pyjamas. If that cat was twenty feet tall and spouted fire, and ‘pyjamas’ was an obtuse euphemism for tense, tactical bloodsport. Now we get a look at a full in-game match between monster and man. The new trailer released by Turtle Rock Studios probably isn’t that difficult to make for someone who knows how it’s done. I don’t know […]

Shut Your Faces – BattleBlock Theatre Beta Thoughts

Hatty Hatterson

**These opinions are based on an incomplete product in beta testing.** I played the ever-loving crap out of Castle Crashers, back in the day. My friend bought it for the Xbox 360 and four of us piled into his living room after school and had a blast. There were jokes, laughs, and poop. It was glorious. BattleBlock Theatre brought more of the same excellence. And poop. But now it’s coming to PC as well. Woo!
