Rebel Galaxy: Title…

1973
Overview Rebel Galaxy by Double Damage is a western. In space! Space is a perfect environment for a western: a sparsely populated, lawless expanse where you live by your own rules. Terrifying in reality, but it makes a perfect game.   You start out in a tiny ship with…

Full Throttle Remastered…

Mass Effect Andromeda…

1068

Nier Automata Review…

1023

Rogue Legacy Review:…

Symphony: Liberate your…

589
Overview I talk about the soundtrack near the end of the review, but for Symphony, a shooter by Empty Clip Studios, I want to start with it. This game indisputably has the greatest soundtrack of all time. Because it’s yours.   “You can play your favorite song over and…
