Jonathan Trussler

Jonathan is HeyPoorPlayer's token British person, so expect him to thoroughly exploit this by quoting Monty Python and saying things like "Pip, pip, toodly-whotsit!" for the delight of American readers. He likes artsy-fartsy games, RPGs and RPG-Hybrids (which means pretty much everything at this point). He used to write for Sumonix.com. He's also just realised how much fun it is to refer to himself in the third person like he's The Rock or something.

Ride 3 Review (PS4)

Born to be Bland   Motorbikes: loud, obnoxious, buzzing, vehicular banshees periodically screeching down the road outside my house. They’re like cars but with two wheels. They’re the source of endless hilarious ragdolling when crashing in Grand Theft Auto. They’re what the cast of Sons of Anarchy ride occasionally…

Shortest Trip To Earth Preview (PC)

The Voyage Home     Having your game situated as an “FTL-like” is certainly purchasing some comically big Sideshow Bob-esque shoes to fill. Faster Than Light casts a gargantuan shadow over the roguelike genre, yet Interactive Fate’s new spacebound title has the unenviable task of taking on FTL. Shortest…

Tropico 6 Preview (PC)

Presidente’s Preview   The satirical tropical Bannana-Republic-em-up series Tropico has been roaring along for five entries now. With the exception of the piratical Tropico 2, each game in the series has cast the player as El Presidente, the ruler of a tiny caribbean island in the midst of great…

The Conjuring House Review (PC)

A house you feel like you’ve visited before     “The Conjuring House is like trying to find your car keys, glasses and remote control for hours while some asshole occasionally yells “boo!” in your ear” was what I complained to our Editor-in-Chief Francis DiPersio after he had tasked…

Super Seducer 2 Review (PC)

Super Seducer 2: bigger, bolder, dumber and more casually racist than ever before.   Richard LaRuina La-ruined my day when the first Super Seducer fell onto my proverbial desk – a choose-your-own-adventure style FMV game that forced me to endure literal hours of a smug bell-end giving me a…
