Tales from the Borderlands Episode 4 Review

The Penultimate episode to the series is closing things nicely. The Tales from the Borderlands series of games, if you read my reviews you know, is consistently entertaining and fun.  Each episode so far has provided something unique in terms of story and gameplay that always keep the episode from getting boring or tedious.  I…

Zenzizenzic Review

Zenzizenzic is definitely a game that is as hard to play as it is to say. I’m not the biggest fan of shooters and less so for shoot ‘em ups, so I didn’t know what to think going into it. I was pleasantly surprised. There isn’t any kind of background story to say why the…

The Witcher 3 Review

2015 is a big year for gamers. So many games filled with potential, coming both from the AAA and indie scene, are on their way. One of the most anticipated ones, “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt”, is finally out. This AAA, high fantasy RPG aimed to emerge us in its beautiful, massive world filled with…

Duck Game Review

There have been many games that can accurately call themselves “Duck Shooters”. The Duck Game puts a twist on this as you are a duck who shoots other ducks. This platform/shooter is definitely not an everyday kind of game. Normally I would try to summarize the story of a game I am reviewing, but to…

Avernum 2 Crystal Souls Review

Having not played the predecessor of Avernum 2 Crystal Souls, I went into this game without any real expectations. It is a TBS, RPG indie game. Initially I had thought that it would be similar to a watered down version of Final Fantasy, but that was not the case. Avernum 2 Crystal Souls takes place…

Game of Thrones: Episode 2 – The Lost Lords Review

The game takes place in various locations Ironrath, Yunkai, Kings Landing and The Wall. If you are a fan of the show, the game offers comfort in the story style you are familiar with but has enough differences to stand on its own. The episode starts you off in Yunkai, with Asher with his sidekick…

Game of Thrones: Episode 1 – Iron from Ice Review

I will say this for those who have not watched the show from where the story starts off at, this game will be a major spoiler. So before playing the game I suggest watching the show before playing. The story takes place outside the palace where the Red Wedding takes place. While members of the…

Space Engineers Review

WARNING: Space Engineers is an Early Access game on Steam. Early Access games are games avaliable for purchase, that are not completely finished, yet playable. Not all Early Access games are finished, and some developers completely abandon on these games. Space Engineers is one of the more unique building games that I’ve come across. Many…

Hyphen Review

*Note: I did not finish Hyphen due to the games extreme difficulty. I finished roughly 2/3’s of the game.   Hyphen is an Indie game created by a studio called Far Space Games. When I received this review, I had no idea what to expect. Little did I know that I had accepted to review…

Ascendant Review

One commonly used phrase, “rouge-likes,” has been thrown around a lot over the last two years or so.  So it was only a matter of time before a game like Ascendant came along.  A game that is so frustratingly difficult, that I only made it through the first couple of levels. There is nothing inherently…

Knightmare Tower Review

Fast, fun and simple; is probably the easiest way to describe Knightmare Tower.  The story is minimal; you are a knight who must battle the enemies of a dark tower and save several princesses along the way.  Although it sounds uninteresting, the story really doesn’t matter anyways.  The addictive, vertical-scrolling, gameplay will keep you coming…

Ionball 2: Ionstorm Review

The time I spent with Ionball 2 made me think about how much fun I used to have with games like Brick Break. Ionball 2 takes that very same formula of you trying to break all the “bricks” (in the case of this game the bricks are robots), with a paddle and a fast moving…

Sid Meier’s Civilization V – Review

I have never played a *Civilization game prior to jumping into **Civ V.  To be honest, I don’t have much time playing strategy games either, but the series has always intrigued me and been in my backlog for a while now.  I was told by some friends that I will lose dozens of hours of…

Bound by Flame Review

Some of my favorite games, such as Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and Jade Empire, allow you to choose between good and evil. More importantly, those choices between good and evil affect the story of the game. Not many games share this characteristic, so when I heard about Bound by Flame, I was…

Paranormal State Poison Spring Collector’s Editon Review

Paranormal State Poison Spring Collector’s Editon Developer: Legacy Games Have you ever wanted to go ghost hunting? Always curious about how all the ghost hunting equipment actually works? Yet, your still a bit iffy to go out and take part of a real ghost hunt with others. You can now, from the comfort of your…

Doctor Who: The Adventure Games Review

As a big Whovian myself, I can happily say that the Doctor Who Adventure Games will satisfy any hunger for content, that any lover of the Doctor might be having lately. The game has been out for a while, in an episodic format, but all of the episodes have now been bundled in one purchasable…

Knights of Pen and Paper +1 Edition Review

Knights of Pen and Paper +1 Edition is quite the game. It looked interesting on the Steam store, so I contacted the publishers, Paradox Interactive for a review copy (a big thank you to them by the way), and I installed the game. What I got sucked into was something truly unique. Take Dungeons and…

Jack Lumber Review

Wood Ninja! I mean, uh, Jack Lumber! The entire time I played this game, I kept thinking to myself, “Man this reminds me a lot of Fruit Ninja!” Now don’t get me wrong; just because the gameplay is extremely similar to Fruit Ninja doesn’t change the fact that this game is awesome and addictive. When…

Ace of Spades Review

What a fantastic premise for a game Ace of Spades is. A class-based multiplayer FPS with the free-formed creation and destruction of Minecraft sounds like wonderful music to my ears. Several Minecraft mods have tried to replicate this idea, but Ace of Spades is the first one to become its own game and make it…
