  • Games Spot Reviews: Darkest Dungeon Review

    A werewolf, a paladin, a bandit, and a cleric walk into the abyss. The werewolf's transformations startle and stress the psyche of the party. The paladin's heart gives out. Our thief begins behaving irrationally. He compulsively opens suspicious chests and rifles through dead bodies. He falls gravely ill. Our cleric, pushed to the brink, finds resolve in faith. She fights back wave after wave of evil abominations far longer than she should. In time, she finds herself overwhelmed.

  • Games Spot Reviews: Firewatch Review

    A fire burns in the distance. With the sun having long since disappeared below the horizon and endless acres of forest warding off the artificial light of civilization, its flames flood the night sky with incandescent hues. It's a natural brush fire, unlikely to do much harm, so for now I rest my elbows on the railing that surrounds my lookout tower and admire the view. A nearby transceiver crackles to life. It's Delilah, radioing from her own tower several miles away.

  • Games Spot Reviews: Unravel Review

    As my eight-inch Yarny doll hung for dear life on a thread of wool, swinging his way across the dark underbelly of a seaside pier, my immediate thoughts were not concerned with his well-being. I was instead overcome with nostalgia. There’s something incurably wistful about the sounds of seaside that always seems to lure out childhood memories.

  • Games Spot Reviews: Devilian Review

    Like a pair of shoes you might replace every few years, Devilian feels safe and familiar. An action-oriented free-to-play MMO with an isometric view, Trion Worlds' latest free-to-play title could be compared to Diablo or Torchlight, but it also bears the trappings of many F2P MMOs. From fetch quests to cash shops to PVP battlegrounds--not to mention cosmetic gear, mounts and pets--Devilian's safe bets often outnumber its innovations, yet that doesn't mean there's nothing there worth spending time on; it just depends on how you spend it.

  • Games Spot Reviews: The Mean Greens - Plastic Warfare Review

    Little green army men were a staple in many kids' toy boxes, including my own. They were iconic and fun, and they came to life in two hugely popular ways in the '90s: Pixar's Toy Story and video games. Developer Virtual Basement tries to feed off this nostalgia in The Mean Greens - Plastic Warfare. It works at first, with green army men coming to life and running into battle on a cluttered arts and crafts table. However, The Mean Greens fails to offer an experience that lives up to the rose-tinted memories of imaginary battles with the toys that inspired it.

  • CEASE: We need you to sign the pledge on Safer Internet Day!

    Leicestershire Police is urging people to sign its CEASE pledge on Safer Internet Day 2016 (Tuesday 9 February).

    Safer Internet Day is a perfect opportunity for organisations to engage with young people encouraging them to stay safe online and support Leicestershire’s CEASE campaign by signing the pledge. CEASE is a Commitment to Eradicate Abuse and Sexual Exploitation, alongside the of children in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. The campaign is running in parallel with the highly successful “spot the signs” campaign – run by the two local safeguarding boards. Lots of organisations and well-known celebrities signed the pledge at its launch on Friday 5 February.

    Today, on Safer Internet Day, Police Community Support Officers (PCSO’s) will be talking to students at schools providing helpful advice on how to keep safe online. Young people will also have the opportunity to take part in a web chat where they will be able to ask any questions they may have and report any concerns.

    The web chat is between 12pm and 2pm using the hashtag #SID2016. The web chat is aimed at young people but it is open to anyone who wishes to take part so please logon to and join in.

    Children and Young People Officer, Laura Hallam, said: “Safer Internet Day is a perfect opportunity to raise awareness about the key issues relating to young people using the internet in a safe manner. It’s also a great opportunity to promote our new campaign and get young people involved in CEASE. We want as many people as possible to sign the pledge so they can truly understand the importance of stay safe online.

    Leicestershire County Council and Leicestershire and Rutland Safeguarding Board lead for CSE, Victor Cook added: “We want to encourage young people to use the internet and benefit from the great opportunities it provides but at the same time we want people to monitor their privacy settings and be aware of who they are talking to and who could access their personal information.”

    Within 72 hours of launching the CEASE pledge site, 400 people have already signed the pledge. Our target is 100,000. We need your help to eradicate child sexual exploitation.

  • Sighting of missing Malachi Quintyne-Bayliss

    Missing 15-year-old seen in the city – do you know where he is?

    Malachi Quintyne-Bayliss was reported missing to police on Sunday 24 January. The latest sighting of him was on Abbey Lane, Leicester, at around 10pm on Thursday 4 February.

    Malachi is mixed race, 5ft 6ins tall, medium build, clean shaven, with short mousey brown hair and blue eyes. He is known to regularly visit Beaumont Leys.

    Today we’re asking you to sign a pledge to help us eradicate child abuse and sexual exploitation from our communities in Leicester, Leicestershire and in Rutland.

    The initiative is part of a major multi-agency campaign which was launched at a special event at Leicester’s King Power Stadium today, Friday 5 February.

    The CEASE campaign - the Commitment to Eradicate Abuse and Sexual Exploitation of children in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland – was officially opened by Sir Clive Loader, Police and Crime Commissioner for Leicestershire.

    Among those to sign the pledge – which went live at 12 noon – are sports stars, actresses, faith leaders and businesses leaders. We want at least 100,000 people to sign the pledge. Will you be the next? It will only take a couple of minutes, but it could save a child from a lifetime of pain.

    In signing the pledge, we will ask you to be aware of the signs to look out for that may indicate a child is in danger. By understanding these signs, and by looking out for them, together we can help protect children and young people.

    Politicians, representatives from industry, commerce, charities and the private sector joined local celebrities at this morning’s pledge-signing launch of CEASE, which builds on the progress already made by councils, the police, the health service and other partners to tackle CSE. The campaign is one of 12 separate multi-agency projects being funded by Sir Clive to protect the vulnerable. Last summer, he announced he would make up to £2m available to support creative and innovative multi-agency projects aimed at enhancing the work already being done to tackle CSE which he describes as “an insidious and wicked crime against the most vulnerable in society”.

    CEASE is aimed at:
    • Raising greater public awareness of CSE
    • Raising public awareness of the signs that CSE may be happening
    • Increasing the reporting of the offence; and
    • Increasing the prosecutions of offenders.

    A special video has been made in which local people and celebrities encourage others to sign the pledge.
