  • Hard Reset Redux Review: Now With Y-Axis Aiming

    05 Jul 2016

    Hard Reset originally came out in 2011, which seems to be about right for a remastered version of games on consoles. Flying Wild Hog’s intent with the game was to bring the FPS genre back to its roots, and that it did. You won’t find regenerating life, cover, or waypoints guiding you here. While the […]

  • Catyph The Kunci Experiment Review: Discovering the Moon

    01 Jul 2016

    The latest entry in the Black Cube series, following Myha and ASA has arrived. If you’ve played the previous entries in the series, you can expect more of the same, except better. So don’t worry, Simon hasn’t thrown a curve ball and turned the series into an action adventure shoot ’em up. You’ll be wandering […]

  • The Magic Circle Review: GO TEAM QA

    30 Apr 2016

    In recent years, breaking the fourth wall and the concept of “meta” has become pretty popular. So naturally, it was only a matter of time until a game that was about making a game that was left in development hell and forced you to finish it from the inside out eventually graced our hardened gaming […]

  • Layers of Fear Review: Be Cautious of Wet Paint

    03 Mar 2016

    Imagine that you are an artist that has been driven to perfection in your work, and in doing so you’ve lost sight of the world’s reality. You go to any means necessary to create your next piece, and lose sight of everything else in your life. That’s more or less what this game is, though […]

  • Ironcast Review: Everything is Better with Mechs

    27 Feb 2016

    Ironcast is one of those games that started out as a Kickstarter and actually came to fruition. Funded October 3rd, 2014, the game made its debut on PCs March 26th, 2015, and it was announced that day that the game would be crossing over to consoles later that year. While it didn’t make it in […]

  • Zombie Vikings Review: Rise From Your Grave

    12 Feb 2016

    The latest game from the team that brought you the wonderful Stick It to the Man is here. Well, it’s been here for quite a few months now, actually. I apologize for the length of time it’s taken to get this up for all of you – the original curator of this article defected, and […]

  • Way of the Samurai 4 Review: Two Coffins… No, Maybe Three

    27 Oct 2015

    Way of the Samurai has been a series I’ve always enjoyed, despite never really doing well on a critical level. Perhaps it is the fact that I adore Japanese culture, or maybe the fact that it’s more open-world than most other games are despite their claims. All I know is that I played the series […]

  • Act of Aggression Review: Hunker Down

    06 Oct 2015

    I grew up watching my brother and uncle play games like Command & Conquer and StarCraft, so naturally I started playing them myself. While I never really had the opportunity to play them online in their heyday, I did manage to participate in LAN parties when that was still a thing people did (I know […]

  • I Am Bread Review: Become the Toast

    07 Sep 2015

    By this point, you probably recognize the name Bossa Studios. While they aren’t creating AAA titles, they are a BAFTA nominated/awarded studio. If that doesn’t do anything to jog your memory, perhaps the name Surgeon Simulator 2013 will help. Yes, the developer that really paved the way for the Simulator genre to take off has […]

  • Q.U.B.E. Director’s Cut Review – Playing with Blocks

    15 Aug 2015

    Since the huge success of a tiny game you may have heard of called Portal, there was a … well, not a surge of similar titles, but there are certainly more first person puzzle platformers than there were previously. Q.U.B.E. originally came out in 2011 on Desura, with the director’s cut debuting in 2014. It […]

  • The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited- The Good, the Bad, and the Argonian

    01 Aug 2015

    It’s been a little over a month since the latest and greatest tales of Tamriel began on consoles. Zenimax and Bethesda gave themselves a Herculean task, trying to create an MMORPG while trying to maintain the great single player game play the series is known for. After spending an entire vacation questing, fighting through dungeons, […]

  • The Vanishing of Ethan Carter Review: Exploring the Haunting Beauty

    26 Jul 2015

    This puzzle filled narrative title came out in the latter half of 2014, but just recently made its way to PS4. So what makes this version of the game any different from the PC version? Well, the biggest one is that the PS4 version was rebuilt from scratch in Unreal Engine 4, and includes several […]

  • Rocket League- An Addicting Thrill Ride

    11 Jul 2015

    Everyone has probably heard at least once in their life that “just because it’s free doesn’t mean you should take it”; or you’ve heard “if it’s free there’s a reason why.” Neither of these things are true for Rocket League by Psyonix. This beautifully done game is free for PlayStation Plus members this month and it’s […]

  • Batman: Arkham Knight Review- One Last Ride Through Gotham

    29 Jun 2015

    The long awaited finale in the Rocksteady series has finally arrived to give players control over the world’s greatest detective one last time. Placed in his hometown of Gotham, Arkham Knight gives the player full reign over the thug filled streets allowing the player to really get a feel for this epicenter of crime. With […]
