  • Rise & Shine Review: Saturday Morning Masochism

    18 Feb 2017

    Every now and then you’ll see an article talking about the graphics in games and how they don’t matter. Hell, I even took at stab at writing about graphics eight years ago, which is so long I don’t know how I even managed to bother – and it’s obvious when you start to see where […]

  • Darksiders Warmastered Review: Apocalyptic Remaster

    18 Feb 2017

    There’s an appeal to games that utilize the same areas over and over, and it’s partially because people love familiarity. What else do people love the same of? Well, that would be remasters of games that came out on the previous console. Or at least, that’s what the game developers seem to think as games […]

  • Silence Review: Don’t Even Whisper

    17 Dec 2016

    One of the most beloved genres of PC players from the 80s and 90s was the adventure titles. Today, while there are more than one might think, there aren’t a lot of companies that devote themselves almost entirely to the genre. Enter Daedalic, creators of some of the better known entries in the genre for […]

  • Mekazoo Review: Rabid Animals

    15 Nov 2016

    So I just played a platformer that puts you in control of several animals, all with different abilities. That sounds a bit like something I’ve played before somewhere. Was it on the NES? No, no… The Atari Jaguar? I don’t think so. Oh right, Sega has a popular series that follows a blue hedgehog who […]

  • Small Radios Big Televisions Review: Seeing Sounds

    14 Nov 2016

    In the course of the past year, virtual reality has become more than just a pipedream. The Rift, Vive, and PSVR are heavy hitters in the gaming world, and many others from companies like Google and Samsung exist on a much lower tier. But have you ever thought of a virtual audioverse? Putting a cassette […]

  • Saturday Morning RPG Review: I HAVE THE POWER

    03 Nov 2016

    If you grew up in the 80s and 90s, you no doubt spent some Saturdays waking up and watching cartoons. The phrase Saturday Morning Cartoons was something thrown around every week by friends and family, following the heroic efforts of your favorite characters. Well take those experiences and throw them into a game that plays […]

  • Ginger: Beyond the Crystal Review – A Flawed Stone

    22 Oct 2016

    There was a time when games were big into platforming. To many, it was the pinnacle of games. They still exist of course, but where it more or less began, it’s stayed – Nintendo. There have been exceptions over the years; there are always exceptions. Cue Drakhar Studios, with a new entry into the genre […]

  • Ninja Pizza Girl Review: Hot and Ready

    14 Oct 2016

    Pizza and ninjas – need I say more?

  • Rogue Stormers Review: More of a Drizzle

    08 Oct 2016

    The popularity of roguelike-like games has seemingly diminished a bit, but people still love the idea of randomly generated levels and worlds, as it seemingly gives an endless amount of content for the player. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case. While games developed this way are usually with the best of intentions, they don’t always […]

  • Aragami Review: Looking Through the Shadows

    04 Oct 2016

    Stealth games have been around for a long time, but the most notable really began with Tenchu and Metal Gear Solid on the PS1 and Thief on the PC. They’ve come a long way over the years, but there have always been staples of the genre. Challenges that people would impose upon themselves, like never […]

  • Zenith Review: Writing First, Gameplay Later

    29 Sep 2016

    There certainly are a lot of adventurers that are tasked with saving the world in games. Ever think that maybe those adventurers are the cause of the issues, and are only solving problems that they created in the first place? Argus Windell has lived the life and knows the fate some young adventurers will end […]

  • 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 […]

    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?
