  • RIVE Review: A Tear Filled Goodbye

    27 Sep 2016

    It’s not often that games are made with people knowing ahead of time it is the last for the company. Usually a company closes because profits are not high enough, or some undisclosed event shuts them down. RIVE was announced in 2014, and on March 10th, 2016 a trailer noted that this would be the final […]

  • Oceanhorn – Monster of Uncharted Seas Review: A Hero of our Time

    22 Sep 2016

    Over the years there have been lots of games that copied one another’s formulas, some being more successful than others. Every holiday now you can expect to get competing military shooters. Turn on Steam and look at the greenlit games and I’m sure you’ll find plenty that gimp one another frame for frame after only […]

  • The Final Station Review: All Aboard

    03 Sep 2016

    A world is at its end, a single train travels the Earth, and an unknown threat appears out of nowhere. You are the conductor of the train. You are to travel the world. You are the last hope for humanity. Are you up to the challenge? Is it worth it?

  • INVERSUS Review: Battling the Upside Down

    16 Aug 2016

    For the first time since… I want to say ModNation Racers (yes, six years ago) we have a video review for your enjoyment. The game deals with negative space in a way that seems so obvious I’m surprised it hasn’t been implemented earlier in video games. For immediate gratification, click through. To actually learn a […]

  • Headlander Review: Off With His Head

    09 Aug 2016

    Double Fine is one of those companies where you tend to pick up their products regardless of what you know, because they are known to be innovative. If nothing else, you can usually count on them for a laugh. With Tim Schafer leading the charge, it was hard to not be excited about their first […]

  • Batman Ep. 1 Realm of Shadows Review: What Lurks in the Night

    06 Aug 2016

    The highly acclaimed story tellers at Telltale are back with their venture into the DC universe with Batman – The Telltale Series. Not their first venture into the comic world, obviously, but one of the most well-known around the world. Bruce will face many familiar faces, but go up against a secret that could change […]

  • Layers of Fear DLC Inheritance Review: Daddy Issues

    05 Aug 2016

    It wasn’t too long ago now that Bloober made their splash in the horror genre of games with Layers of Fear. We played and really liked it, so it makes sense that we’d be excited to get our hands on an extension of the story.

  • 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 […]
