Apparently there haven‘t been any major updates here since 2009 (not counting the test post last week). Which is actually exactly what my dentist told me today, too — I was way behind on getting my yearly checkups. But all is fine with my teeth, and all is fine with this site, too. In particular, I can offer two new full reviews!
Dishonored is a stealth assassin game set in a city with a completely nonsensical tram system. That review has been up for a few days now, but I forgot writing an entry here about it.
Meanwhile, Bioshock Infinite is a shooter telling a tale of capitalism, oppression, the american dream, alternate universes and suspended dual-track railways. That is probably my longest review yet.
In other news, I‘ve disabled the comments. Basically, all of them were spam, and I had no interest in dealing with that. Also gone are the ads, which never produced any revenue at all, and on the backend, I no longer use Google Analytics to track you, since I don‘t like the privacy implications.
If you do like being tracked, there are dedicated sharing buttons now, using the Heise two-click approach, which means that Facebook, Twitter and Google+ will only track your visit here if you allow them to.
I have no idea when the next update will be; currently, there are no games that really need discussing, but a few where I started reviews and didn‘t finish them yet. As always, I‘m interested in suggestions (ideally with screenshots) or even guest writers!
