The world, destroyed. Twenty years later, you wake up on an alien planet with your co-pilot missing. You need answers, and the only way you’re gonna get them is some good-old fashioned 2D metroidvania. I can’t completely comment on the level design, because in order to create the demo…

PAX East 2019:…

The year is… it doesn’t matter much, really, because robots vs. demons is fun no matter what year it is. Panzer Paladin by Tribute Games is a charmingly retro action platformer where you play as a squire, a certified small boy who rises up to fight demon invaders. The squire…

Treasure Stack Review…

Xbox users are getting the bad end of the stick again.   Look at the PS4! They get Tetris Effect, which is supposedly the greatest thing since sliced bread, and with its VR component adding spades of visually sublime experiences, we Xbox users can do nothing but stare in envy. Then…

Apex Legends Review…

Oh, don’t give me that look, you know I’m right.   It’s been a year since Fortnite blew up, two years since PUBG did the same, and three years since I last felt happiness, and in that time, we’ve seen pale imitators merely grasp the prize of being “The Game A Majority Pays…

Alright, let’s go back to the past real quick.   Cut back to 2005, and the Xbox 360 launches with a fat handful of titles. Most of them were sport titles, but there were games within the launch library that looked set to stun. The revolutionary graphics of Perfect Dark…

Genesis Alpha One…

Ahh. Once more unto the breach lads.   It’s a shame that we are the humans that were born too late to explore the planet with a boat, were born too early to travel the stars but were the ones to have invented the television. So instead of being…

Life is Strange…

Damn, this took a while, didn’t it?   I was expecting this back in late November or early December, but DONTNOD wanted time to hone in on their craft, their life, their passion for what is their most popular franchise. By “time”, they mean “make the episodes twice as…
