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...

20XX Review – Playstation 4
Playstation 4 Reviews

A Mighty Challenger Developed by Batterystaple Games, 20XX is an interesting little platforming experience. The die-hard Mega Man fan in me was constantly at odds with what I was experiencing. “NO!…that’s…that’s just NOT right!”, I would scream incessantly at my television. “…YOU DON’T DO THAT IN A MEGA MAN GAME!!” I went on like this for quite a bit of time. But after I let myself calm down and somewhat begrudgingly 20XX grab me by the hand, I was left...

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...

Diablo III: Rise of the Necromancer Review
Playstation 4

Kill, loot, boss battle, repeat. This is the formula that makes Diablo, and games like it, shine so brightly.  In the years since the launch of Diablo 3 launch, Blizzard has added only one new character. For $14.99, you can take control of a brooding Necromancer as you journey through the game’s five chapters. Unfortunately there is not much to this expansion other than the addition of the new character, which doesn’t add much to the overall experience. Rise from...

SHU Review
Playstation 4 Reviews

Shu begins like a 2D platformer plucked from the NES era: a malevolent entity unceremoniously appears and lays waste to your hometown. As the last vestige of hope, the village elder tasks you with defeating the ancient evil before it brings about the end of the world. The set-up is as conventional as it gets, but what Shu lacks in narrative it more than makes up for with gameplay. Much like the classic platformers Shu draws its inspiration from, controls...

Syberia III Review
Playstation 4 Reviews

An adventure 10 years too late. The last Syberia game released in 2004 to critical acclaim. It was a gold standard of which adventure games would be measured for years to come. Since then, Tell Tale has released the award winning Walking Dead series among many others. Supermassive released the critical darling Until Dawn, and Quantic Dream has released the notable Heavy Rain. Needless to say, the bar has been raised since 2004. Can Syberia keep up with the genre?...

The Walking Dead: A New Frontier Episode 3 ” Above the Law” Review
Playstation 4

With episodes 1 and 2 of Telltale’s The Walking Dead: A New Frontier ending on such a strong note with a fantastic cliffhanger, episode 3 “Above the Law” has plenty to work with and gets off to a good start. Javier and company make their way to a new settlement only to find that his long lost brother David is not only there, but is an important high ranking official within the New Frontier. Telltale does a great job of...

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...

Horizon Zero Dawn Review
Playstation 4

The post-apocalyptic world has never looked so beautiful. Guerrilla Games has traded the war-torn wastelands of Killzone for the lush landscapes and sun-kissed vistas of Horizon: Zero Dawn, a third-person action game that stars Aloy, a fierce yet compassionate warrior searching for the truth of her past. Guerilla Games’ painstaking attention to detail is evident in small touches. The moonlight, reflecting on the water, follows Aloy as she runs along the river. Aloy crushes leaves as she runs across the...

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...

Double Dragon IV Review
Playstation 4

Double Dragon IV perfectly replicates the “old school” look and feel of the series’ origins. It’s the latest throwback to the neon-tinged 1980’s, as game developers continually peruse the catalog of dormant franchises. It’s nice – every once in a while – to cozy up with an old friend; and while Double Dragon IV isn’t progressive or groundbreaking, it earns points for paying homage to a legacy franchise that many 30-somethings remember fondly. If you have played Double Dragon on...

Siegecraft Commander Review
Playstation 4

Siegecraft Commander is a neat little RTS that blends tower defense, turn based strategy and traditional RTS systems that are easy to use and understand whether you are a strategy veteran, or if this is your first time with the genre. At first glance this medieval inspired cartoon world seemed like it would be filled with factions of creatures and humans alike but in reality there are only two races of playable characters. There are the humans, which are broken...

Weeping Doll Review
Playstation 4 Reviews

October is a time for girls dressed as Harley Quinn, candy, and kids just being generally silly and asking complete strangers for candy (I know a guy who does that every day of the year.) Anyway, beyond these things, October is a time for things that are scary and therefore scare us. This October, Playstation VR launched much to the appreciation from a community of gamers looking for a new experience. PSVR launched with a couple of scary games/demos, but...

Virginia Review – Virginia Tells A Deep and Engaging Story Without Uttering a Word
Playstation 4

Virginia is a First Person, narrative based, noir adventure game set in the early 1990’s with an evident inspiration from 90’s television shows such as The X-Files or Twin Peaks, yet developer Variable State still manages to tell a rich and engaging story in their own unique way. Dialogue between characters is replaced with a sort of pantomime during each scene, where emotion is still conveyed through each characters actions, and not a single word is uttered.  Very similar to silent-movies, each scene is...

Breach and Clear: Dead Line Review
Playstation 4

Reviewed on PS4 Breach and Clear is a third person action strategy hybrid form Mighty Rabbit Studios. Having no prior experience with a Breach and Clear game I was welcomed by the melding of two of my favorite genres in all of gaming and that is squad based military shooters, and zombies. Unlike most games with those two themes Dead Line does not just stay an action based military shooter, or a strategy game up allows the player to chooses...

Riptide GP: Renegade Review
Playstation 4

From the very first race there has been a consistent theme with Riptide GP: Renegade, FUN. The follow up to the IOS games Riptide GP, and Riptide GP2, Renegade does much more than deliver a polished Jet Moto meets Hydro Thunder mash-up. In fact, it takes what was great about these franchises and makes something truly wonderful. In fact, even grinding out some of the races didn’t lose any of the fun factor. Vector Unit has truly made something special...

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...

Ever wonder what it what it was like to be Sandra Bullock and be virtually all alone in space? Well you’re in luck because there exists a game Called Adrift (Adr1ft) where you are literally drifting in space with nothing but debris and solitude surrounding you. The game starts with your basic tutorial that does an excellent job teaching you the ins and outs of the game. This is a very unique game with unique movement, and the only thing that I can compare...
