Asemblance Review –…

513
Oh, come on, man, not another 20-minute game.   Whatever, this is Asemblance, a first-person walking simulator psychological thriller, and why don’t you try saying that three times fast? Coming to us from Seattle-based Nilo Studios who have only ever created one game, today’s time-ticking torment. The final result?…

Why is January so goddamn good for video games?   I get that it’s the period where all of the indie/triple A developers that aren’t Activision figure it’s safe to avoid the Christmas rush, but this time? Goodness gracious, we’ve been spoilt for choice. Albert & Otto aside, we’ve…

Vesta Review –…

The 90s 3-D platformer throwback is something I never expected to return.   A Hat in Time, FreezeME, Yooka-Laylee, and a few others to boot. What’s great is the irony from Yooka-Laylee easily being the worst out of the 3 mentioned, and it’s the new-comers who came through with a fresh set of…

Defunct Review –…

15 bucks… for a game that can be completed it in 30 minutes? Uhhhhhhhhhh-   I always seem to get bad luck picking the games that can be completed in minutes. I’m here for a long time and a good time, so we can’t have lulls where I’m like…
Super Meat Boy Review

Super Meat Boy…

472
Super Meat Boy is almost 8 years old in this newly started 2018. Developers Team Meat has decided that a port to the Nintendo Switch was in order, so that’s what we got. But there’s more to this port than just a repolished handheld and TV experience. The new…

Sherlock Holmes: The…

You ever played the Sherlock Holmes games?   My personal favourite comes down to Crimes & Punishments, the 2014 entry, which managed to be the game L.A. Noire was too busy being an action game to be. It had it all, smart mechanics, compelling cases, magnificent camaraderie between Holmes and Watson… it was fun and…

Albert & Otto…

Hey, look! Another Limbo clone! But this one barely works!   I’m starting to get sick of this. I’m starting to get sick of every small-time developer jumping onto this bandwagon of trying to ape off of a 7 year old game’s success, and going about it like everyone else did. With…

Observer_ Review –…

Blade Runner is okay, I guess.   Ridley Scott knows how to make a film look good, but that’s about it, really. Blade Runner has inspired thousands of pieces of material, one of them being >Observer_, what you’d get if you put Blade Runner into the same universe as…

RiME Review

892
RiME had been in development for quite some time and I’m sure Tequila Works was relieved to finally get it out there. The first trailer was shown back in 2013, but the game wasn’t released on most platforms until halfway through 2017. Nintendo console owners had to wait even…

Nine Parchments Review

We are suckers for magic, aren’t we? Always captivated by the idea that something could be done by uttering some gibberish. And don’t even talk about how we crave for magic showdowns.  We wish we could convert even a fraction of that into reality. Well, sadly that sort of…

Slow motion in video games is no longer the raging force it used to be.   This saddens advocates of the mechanic like myself. It seems like only yesterday that…
