Marble Void Review…

726
Marble Blast Ultra was superb.   One of the OG XBLA hits along with Zuma, Small Arms and Geometry Wars, seeing it being delisted in 2011 was heartbreaking. 60FPS smoothness, a tight control scheme and beautifully thought-out level design, saw the game soar to the top of everyone’s “favouriite XBLA games” list and since then,…

Spooktober Entry #8 – Previous Entry: BUTCHER // Next Entry: The Coma: Recut   Here’s a title that needs no introduction.   Outlast, one of the catalysts for YouTube Lets Plays. This, Cry of Fear, the SCP minigames and some other non-horror crap, designed for the Lets Player in question to make stupid faces and…

Spooktober Entry #7 – Previous Entry: OXENFREE // Next Entry: Outlast   We need a lil’ break from all the walking simulators.   While it’s nice to actually connect with characters on an emotional level, for the sake of adoration, you just need that change of pace. A game…

N++ Review –…

Screw people who think a platformer needs to be sunshine and rainbows.   I’ve seen people whine about the original N+, under the belief that “the controls are 2 tyte” or “itz to hard 4 my mind 2 compruhend :^(“, like they can be classed as actual complaints. N+ isn’t for the casual…

Destiny 2 Review:…

1045
Light…it’s what gives us power, gives us strength and with Destiny 2, gives us hope. Destiny 2 takes what its predecessor had towards the end with Taken King and Rise of Iron and builds upon it, adding more loot, more enemies and most importantly, more fun. Destiny 2 doesn’t…

Entry #3 of our Spooktober Special – Previous Entry: Resident Evil 6 // Next Entry: The Final Station   Wouldn’t be Halloween without some good old zombies, would it?   Should’ve saved Bloody Zombies for the season of skeletons, but it’s too late to cover that now. Another possible candidate was…

Entry #2 of our Spooktober Special – Previous Entry: The Town of Light // Next Entry: Zombie Army Trilogy   It’s weird to think of the history of Resident Evil, isn’t it?   At one point, we had these slow-building tension fests, with horrible voice acting and neat set-ups. But then…
