“Faces sweaty, arms and legs, what a glorious set of stairs we make.” Jump back a couple of years and zombies are tiresome, boring to fight, and lacking the irony-tinged bite they once had. Even something objectively tantalizing like Dying Light was met with a collective shrug, but now? With Resident Evil…

Unfurl the banners and ready the feast! After almost two years in development, King Knight is ready to make his grand appearance. Shovel Knight: King of Cards has spent a long time in the oven, but after spending just a few moments with the game you’ll understand why. It…

SuperEpic: The Entertainment War is a Metroidvania-style game developed by Undercoders and published by Numskull Games. Undercoders are best known for their 2016 release, Conga Masters, and before that, they found some success in the mobile market.

Sparklite is an isometric action-adventure rogue-lite developed by Red Blue Games. Previously a mobile developer, this is Red Blue’s first effort on consoles. As such, Sparklite does have some elements that make it feel like a mobile game at times, but I’ll talk more about that later. I come…

Honestly, Top Gear ten years ago was unstoppable.   The charisma and stupidity which oozed from the musings and adventures that Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May went on, and it was adored by everyone, even non-car lovers. In fact, when Clarkson had that “fracas” that jeopardized the future of…

Searching After Horror Underneath interchangeable demons and killers, the core of the horror experience is a balance of mundanity and payoff. The ability for implied terror to reign over you until what has long been felt in the gut finally manifests. But the combined powers of scripting, repetition, and…

Worse Than Death…

One of the more philosophical questions here.   As we await for the endless void to consume us all, it makes us wonder what exists out there that makes us beg for the sweet release of death. Current world state jokes aside, there’s not much realistic in terms of…

Observation Review –…

Nothing quite erodes the ego like bearing witness to utter isolation. A world comprised of limited parts that you still can’t grasp firm control of. The promise of an endless frontier and the barriers that confine it. Isolation is inseparable from any grounded space story, but Observation centers in…

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…

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…
