The Way Review:…

351
This week was a bit awful, I’ll admit.   Summer Spotlight trundled out in full force as per, with the promise of interesting titles galore. But after some time, that promise slowly decayed into an evening of disappointment for your debonair host. The Long Dark was looking to be an interesting…

Vostok Inc Review:…

Another day, another twin stick shooter from a small UK studio.   The Summer Spotlight continues with full force through August, with some bigger titles coming into play this week. The Long Dark and Tacoma are titles that will be covered later in the week but before that, we have the equivalent…

Cyber Complex Review

325
Maybe presentation doesn’t matter in video games as much as it used to.   About a year ago, I used to judge media on the cover, which lead to some.. Questionable purchases. I’d say there was a 30% chance of success with every game, and for someone who owns…

Super Cloudbuilt Review

Speed isn’t a factor in video games as much as it used to be.   I still find it incredibly hilarious that the infamous Doomguy barrelled through Doom 1 at a speed faster than Usain Bolt, and then Doom 3 happened. And all that disappeared in favour of making System Shock but with Cacodemons. Even…

Splatoon 2 Review:…

1374
After Nintendo released Splatoon back in 2015, it was met with a surprising amount of success, especially for a brand new IP released on a not so successful console. Splatoon captured gamers worldwide with it’s charming character designs and unique take on the online shooter genre. It only made…

The Aven Colony…

751
There was much speculation about the Aven Colony before it’s release, whether it would provide us with a brand new refreshing city builder, or rather in this case, a colony builder. Or it would just be Sim City gone universal(literally). So, let’s dive into the phenomenon that is Aven…

Fortnite Early Access…

Remember when Minecraft came to public attention?   God, what a storm. Every man, woman, child and bacterial cell came out of the woodwork to praise its sheer scope of creativity and like always, the imitators arrived in full force, looking to make a quick dollar. Castleminer Z, Terraria, No Man’s Sky,…

Conga Master Review

I have played some.. Avant-garde titles, as of late.   In the past 6 or 7 months, I’ve played some of the weirdest titles to ever grace my systems. Mr. Pumpkin Adventure, Sylvio, The Town of Light, 6180 The Moon, Crypt of The Serpent King, to name a few. Every single…

Moon Hunters Review:…

Going out of your comfort zone isn’t too bad sometimes.   It’s nice to venture beyond what you know you like in favour of a total gamble, and finding out that gamble was a successful move. Oxenfree, Claire, de Blob 2, Westerado, are all titles that come from genres / people…

Deadcore Review

483
Yeah, don’t ask me, I have no idea what this is either.   Ever heard of Deadcore? No? How could you not? It’s clearly at the forefront of the unending queue of Portal clones! Q.U.B.E? The Turing Test? Back down! DeadCore is here to show all those posers how it’s don— Ok, I’ll…

Oh, don’t give me that look, you know I’m right.   It’s been a year since Fortnite blew up, two years since PUBG did the same, and three years since I last felt happiness,…

ERROR 206 – CONTINUE Review

You’ll often hear critics talk about mediocre games and use the word “potential” as if the game just didn’t quite have all the pieces of something great. “There’s something, but…

Tangledeep Switch Review: Platonic Ideal

Tangledeep sure is a roguelike. It does roguelike things and does them pretty well. It looks nice (for the most part), sounds nice, and makes sure every replay is a…
