Quest Hunter Review

1780
Are you trying to scratch that dungeon-crawling, RPG itch? Already played through Diablo, Titan Quest, Torchlight, and the Sacred series? Then Quest Hunter is the game you’re looking for! Quest Hunter is an action-adventure, loot-based questing RPG made by Two Zombie Games. When the player starts their journey in Quest…

Double Cross Review…

592
Ah, the Summer Games drought.   If you’re lazy, you’d look at this decrease in important releases and quiver, but not I! It just means you have to look harder for the gold nuggets, and doing so will reward with much more gratifying gifts than usual. Gifts like Double Cross,…

OVIVO Review –…

Honestly, I’ve never gotten the point of a Rorschach test.   There’s something about a random ink blot spilled by Mr. Rorschach himself that determines you mental stability, that just feels like nonsense. Maybe I’m looking too much into it, like the man who thinks that a ink blot…

Katana Zero Review…

622
Time is of the Essence in Katana Zero   A wholly successful murder spree in Katana Zero appears to unfold in one fell swoop, replayed in a high-speed single take with faux-VHS recording embellishments, your character Zero zipping across the screen like a lethal projectile; but it’s not that…

My favorite game of all time can begrudgingly be called a walking simulator. However, there’s a flip-side to that notion, with walking simulators recently being nothing but…

Devolver Bootleg Review…

377
Yeah, I know, it seems like a cheap shot but I put down my $4.94 for Devolver’s postmodernist charade and dammit I’m gonna get my two cents (retained via the 1% off deal) in. Beneath the unending veils of irony and tongues in cheeks, I’m generally a fan of…

Eagle Island Review:…

579
More times than not, it is very difficult to make a game that stands out in the action-platformer genre. Eagle Island tries really hard to separate itself from the pack and actually does an admirable job in their attempts.   Eagle Island: The Land of Lost Friends This journey…

GRIS Review –…

I wanted to start out this review with a meaningful quote from a video game but I decided that GRIS doesn’t need that. This game speaks for itself in more ways than anything else ever could. Before I get into my GRIS review, I want to say that the…

This review is written in two parts: the first part is a no spoiler review and the second a spoiler-filled rant fest. Make sure you don’t read the second part unless you’ve already watched the whole season. It’s been almost two entire years since we were graced with Stranger…
