Groundhog Day Like Father Like Son Key Art

Groundhog Day: Like…

375
If you ask just about anybody, they’ll tell you about Groundhog Day, an extremely popular movie from the early 1990s starring Bill Murray in one of his timeless roles. Tequila Works, the creators of Rime, took the movie and gave it a worthy sequel in the form of a…
Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair Review

Yooka-Laylee and the…

949
Playtonic Games is back with another entry in the Yooka-Laylee series, because it is a series now. However, this time, instead of giving us another 3D platformer, they decided to shake it up and go 2.5D with a side-scrolling platformer. Was that really a good idea or did they…

World War Z…

717
You remember this film, right? Yeah, it’s somehow Brad Pitt’s highest-grossing film, yet nobody really knows why. I’ve never met a single person who goes beyond mild acceptance of its existence. If you wanna talk about placeholders, then the World War Z movie certainly fits in snugly as “Just another Zombie…

Borderlands 3 Review…

**SIDENOTE: This review of Borderlands 3 and its content is based entirely around a playthough with Moze. This may make an impact in whatever critiques I have to say about the gameplay.   Also, beware of minor/major spoilers. They’re necessary to talk about.**   This series that needs no introduction, I…

GreedFall Review –…

1113
To say GreedFall is a bad game wouldn’t entirely be correct. It’s a cohesive world that matches perfectly with the U.I. and other small details show it was made with love. Developer Spiders isn’t very well known, with its previous two titles Bound By Flame and Technomancer not exactly…
Links Awakening Cover Art

The Legend of…

717
The original Link’s Awakening has a special place in the hearts of those who played it. Its surreal, Twin Peaks-inspired atmosphere and its character-driven story combined to create a unique Zelda experience that is still yet to be matched, even after a quarter of a century. After lying dormant…

The Sojourn Review…

524
Well, I’m sure we’ve done this rodeo… many, many times.   From Portal to Pneuma, Qube to Quantum Conundrum, Braid to The Bridge, blah blah blah, we have another one after so long. The ol’ narrative puzzle-platformer dance that’s been executed across many a universe, and many a pretension. Welcome to The Sojourn.   This is the debut title…

Left Alive Postmortem…

530
Dead in the Water Amidst the legendary blowouts of its contemporaries Anthem and Fallout 76, it is the relatively under-the-radar Left Alive that has been given the bomb beneath the table approach from its developer. Between the three games, Left Alive is the newest and the only one that…
Control Jesse Faden

Control Review –…

932
Control, developed by Remedy Entertainment and published by 505 games, is a war between left brain and right brain. At times, it seemed the biggest conflict in the game was its technical prowess vs. certain creative vulnerabilities. Control constantly makes you ask “Why?” and “How?” at the wrong times…
