AVICII Invector Review…

435
“These are the nights that never die.”   AVICII was a trend-setter, an artist with a proper vision. 2011 saw the release of his breakthrough single “Levels”, a feel-good house hit that let him collaborate with a slew of stars after its success. Whether or not this sudden outburst…
Kingdom Hearts III Review

Kingdom Hearts III…

487
We made it. All those years of anxiously waiting for Kingdom Hearts III to materialize have come to an end. The game is real, has launched, and has been out for a while now; it’s hard to believe, but it’s true. It took 13 years for the last entry…

They Are Billions…

“Faces sweaty, arms and legs, what a glorious set of stairs we make.” Jump back a couple of years and zombies are tiresome, boring to fight, and lacking the irony-tinged bite they once had. Even something objectively tantalizing like Dying Light was met with a collective shrug, but now? With Resident Evil…

Unfurl the banners and ready the feast! After almost two years in development, King Knight is ready to make his grand appearance. Shovel Knight: King of Cards has spent a long time in the oven, but after spending just a few moments with the game you’ll understand why. It…

Sparklite Review: A…

1489
Sparklite is an isometric action-adventure rogue-lite developed by Red Blue Games. Previously a mobile developer, this is Red Blue’s first effort on consoles. As such, Sparklite does have some elements that make it feel like a mobile game at times, but I’ll talk more about that later. I come…

The Grand Tour…

Honestly, Top Gear ten years ago was unstoppable.   The charisma and stupidity which oozed from the musings and adventures that Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May went on, and it was adored by everyone, even non-car lovers. In fact, when Clarkson had that “fracas” that jeopardized the future of…

Fade to Silence…

Searching After Horror Underneath interchangeable demons and killers, the core of the horror experience is a balance of mundanity and payoff. The ability for implied terror to reign over you until what has long been felt in the gut finally manifests. But the combined powers of scripting, repetition, and…

Worse Than Death…

One of the more philosophical questions here.   As we await for the endless void to consume us all, it makes us wonder what exists out there that makes us beg for the sweet release of death. Current world state jokes aside, there’s not much realistic in terms of…

Observation Review –…

403
Nothing quite erodes the ego like bearing witness to utter isolation. A world comprised of limited parts that you still can’t grasp firm control of. The promise of an endless frontier and the barriers that confine it. Isolation is inseparable from any grounded space story, but Observation centers in…

The Pedestrian Review – As Above, so Below

There’s something unanimously humbling about exiting the New York City underground subways, where subterranean confines with claustrophobic depths give way to another world entirely. Skies with no end reign above…
