Graveyard Keeper Review
PC Reviews

No Rest for the Living. Graveyard Keeper begins on a rather somber note. It opens with a nameless character – the hero – out doing some shopping on a rainy night. The music playing in the background hints that something tragic is about to happen. Words scroll across the screen: “Even in everyday routine there is a place for loving and feeling loved…especially when someone misses you.” This can’t be good… The hero then receives a call from what the...

Dead Cells – Multiplatform Review
Nintendo Switch Reviews

Scaling Rougelite mountain, one cell at a time Ed Mcmillen has been a hero to me since the release of Super Meat Boy. His follow-up, The Binding of Issac, is easily in my top ten most played games over the past decade and I greatly admire his cutesy-gore aesthetic. It’s is such a well crafted game and has layers upon layers of content that slowly reveal themselves at an almost perfect pace. I poured hundreds, if not, thousands of hours...

Cultist Simulator Review
PC Reviews

A Cult of Literality Do you ever feel the monotony of working day after day just to be able to work again tomorrow? Perhaps you have an interest in the mystic arts or the occult? Do you want to be part of something bigger than yourself? Then maybe it is time to join a cult! If that is too much work, then maybe just play Cultist Simulator. Pick a card…any card. Cultist Simulator is a cross between a tabletop card...

Friday the 13th: Killer Puzzle Review
PC Reviews

A cut, slice and stab above the rest. Let me just get one thing off my chest right off the bat before I begin this review proper. Gun Media – the folks behind the Friday the 13th multiplayer game – should really take some notes. I’ll go into further detail but my goodness; the amount of interchangeable weapons, outfits, and kills Blue Wizard Digital crammed into Killer Puzzle is staggering. With that said, let’s move on to the review. Friday...

Into the Breach – Review
PC

Human civilization is at its breaking point. Gigantic insectoid creatures known only as the Vek are on the verge of global domination. The only defence that humanity has left is a squad of powerful time-traveling mechs who’ve set out to eradicate the Vek and save the world. Sounds like a bad B-movie right? That’s because it totally could be the back-of-the-box description for any number of terrible Straight to VHS Sci-Fi movies you used to find at your local video...

Prismata Review-In-Progress
PC Reviews

In 2014, Lunarch Studios launched a Kickstarter campaign which would inevitably raise $140,000.00 for a title known as Prismata – a hybrid game which meshes Deck Building and Turn Based Strategy. Now, with a combined eight years of development time, Prismata has been released (sort of) on Early Access. And while I readily admit that Prismata is one of those games that I honestly knew very little about prior to playing it for the first time (which is something of a shocker...

Holiday Gift Guide 2017 – Plantronics RIG 400LX1 Review
PC Reviews

At this years PEPCOM Holiday Spectacular I was given the opportunity to review a new headset out of the new line of sets by Plantronics called RIG. Gaming headsets are flooding the market as competitive gaming becomes more and more popular. The competition is heating up as companies try to innovate, and Plantronics has made some significant changes that gamers should be excited to get their hands on. Ultimately, however, some concessions have been made that take away from the...

Roller Coaster Tycoon: Classic – Review
PC Reviews

Classic Ups and Downs Roller Coaster Tycoon has had some ups and downs throughout the years, but when RTC Classic made it debut on smartphones, the developers at Origin 8 Technologies had captured the long lost magic of the series’ pedigree. Now, the game has come to PC and it proves once and for all that RCT belongs as a PC staple for years to come. Roller Coaster Tycoon: Classic is a prime example of what to do when creating...

Absolver Review
PC Reviews

SloClap’s Absolver is and isn’t one of the best games I’ve played this year. It comes under the genre of MMO games. If you’re playing MMO games it is worth buying a decent mouse, we recommend you check out the iControlPad review of the best MMO mice for an overview. It’s unique take on hand to hand combat is by far the game’s bread and butter and I can’t recall a game where I’ve felt more like I was actually doing martial...

Bendy and the Ink Machine Review

Snake Pass Review
Nintendo Switch Reviews

Wow, what can I say about Snake Pass. Snake Pass is a retro-inspired platformer, where players slither, curl and climb their way through increasingly challenging worlds filled with intricate obstacles and fiendishly mind-bending challenges. When a mysterious intruder threatens the tranquillity of their home, it’s up to Noodle the Snake and Doodle the Hummingbird to embark on a daring journey to save the day.  Controlling this dynamic duo, you must ‘think like a snake’ and slither, curl and climb your...

Talisman: Digital Edition Review
PC Reviews

Based off the board game, Talisman: Digital Edition tries to bring the fun from the tabletop to consoles and PCs. While I can’t comment on how entertaining the actual board game is, it seems likely that something was lost along the way during the transition to video game. Talisman is a turn based game that pits you against other human or AI characters. The goal is to reach the center of the board and kill off the remaining characters. There...

Overcooked! Review
PC Reviews

Overcooked is brought to you by Ghost Town Games and it is a very easy game to pick up, there are only 4 different action buttons that you use throughout the entire game. Walk, grab/put down, chop/wash, and boost. Please note that the first two levels are really easy with 2 or more players, then the game takes a crazy turn and gets more difficult. as it adds level hazards, like moving trucks or ice or even Rats! All easy...

McDroid Review
PC Reviews

Many tower defense game seem simple and laid out. They tend to follow a basic formula in terms of gameplay. Build defenses, upgrade your forces, and watch the enemy walks into a gauntlet of defensive attacks. My initial mindset was, “If you played one tower defense game, you played them all.” McDroid takes a bit of a different approach to the tower defense genre. Your character, a spider-like droid, lands on a planet after a long journey in space. When...

Gunscape is a first person shooter and world building hybrid combining familiar elements of Minecraft and contemporary shooters such as Wolfenstein 3D and Doom. Solid gameplay mixed with an easy to use level creator makes for a fun game that allows players to jump right in and create single player, co-op, and multiplayer deathmatch arenas or full length campaigns. Gameplay and level creation are key in Gunscape, but it also comes packed with a meaty campaign if you are not...

WWE 2K16- Review
PC Reviews

Over the past decade, Wrestling games and their fans have been stuck. Given that developers have tossed back and forth between the idea of simulation and arcade style games. Dating back all the way to WWF Wrestlefest, these games have been traditionally brawlers/fast paced games which didn’t feel well set for a 60 minute Iron Man Match. Past games let you brawl into WWF New York, and drop the People’s Elbow in Times Square. These matches would make you impatient...
