ChromaGun Review –…

478
I thought the Portal clone died already, you know.   When The Turing Test came out, offering intermediate puzzles, and a philosophical and understandable story of what it truly means to be human, I figured that was it. There was no going uphill from here, Bulkhead have created the quintessential follow-up to Valve’s…

Sonic Mania Review:…

1744
So it’s no secret that a lot of Sonic games aren’t…the best. Sonic has had it rough for a very long time and has unfortunately garnered a bad reputation among gamers for repeated bad games. Even when SEGA manages to produce generally well received games like Sonic Colors and…

Escapists 2 Review

818
There’s something fascinating about the layer of complexity in planning an escape from a high security prison. Countless hours of anticipating guards’ routes and day to day movements. Trying to convince old man Sam to sell you that last roll of duct tape, even if you did club him…

Original Journey Review:…

666
Product provided by Bonfire Entertainment Overview I’ve played quite a few roguelikes in my day, such as Rogue Legacy, Overture, Everspace, and now Bonfire Entertainment’s Original Journey. Original Journey plays similarly to Rogue Legacy, one of my personal favorites on this list, as they’re both side view and both…

Thumper Review –…

Rhythm.   Rhythm and song are quintessential to life: it’s what brings you brevity, emotion, and uplifting enlightenment. You have to subject yourself to it, give in to the beat and just let the music take over you. It’ll either lead you to the equivalent of a contact high,…

Ken Follett’s The…

You’d think more developers would make game adaptations of books nowadays.   With the advent of Telltale making millions from tie-ins and what we grudgingly accept as “video games”, you would imagine libraries flooding with publishers looking for the easiest source material to make money off of. Strangely though,…

Circuit Breakers Review…

652
Insanity. The same thing. Again and again.   Repetition leads to perfection. Perfection of craft, of genre and life itself. You cannot say you succeeded without trying more than once, that’s just a passage of life. Gaming has seen this exact same principle, with its solitary exception being Tetris because, it’s Tetris after…

Miitopia Review: This…

952
Overview/”Gameplay” I’m a fairly young man, and without any close family members to get me into gaming early, I got my first console ever in elementary school. This console was the Nintendo Wii, the same console that gave us the Miis, cartoonish representations of the player. The first thing I…

Agents of Mayhem…

919
Agents of Mayhem, a 3rd person open-world action game set in the city of Seoul, is the newest IP from Volition, the creators of the Saints Row series. Volition decided to stay in their comfort zone here as this game shares many features of the Saints row series.  …

The Initiate Review:…

1117
The Initiate is a new first person puzzle game with horror elements by Deceptive Games LTD. The reason I say “horror elements” is because this game is not simply one of the thousands of horror experiences that have appeared on Steam over the last few years, it is at its core, a puzzle…
