Throwback Review: Mirror's Edge - Bottomless Pit
We all know that EA is... subversive, when it comes to evolution.

 

A publisher known for being seemingly suicidal when it comes to new IPs, and dedicated to

Hellpoint Review –…

2664
“3 inches above the floor, man in the box wants to burn my soul.”   Y’know, Dark Souls really was this metaphorical bag of Doritos the world wanted to snack on. An irresistible formula that many love the taste of, but no one can fully emulate in the correct way. We’ve…

Apex Legends Season…

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been terrified of spiders. Whether they’re maliciously spying on me in a corner of a room or just chilling on my windowsill, the mere sight of spiders causes my palms to sweat and my breathing to accelerate. It’s a phobia…

Beyond Blue Review…

953
“Looking down into the water, it’s hard to make out your face.”   You know, it’s crazy how in all of this advancement into making games fun and educational hasn’t led into the two meeting each other for younger audiences. I highly doubt you’re going to find a pre-teen…

Ion Fury Review…

1127
  “Fighting a constant and bitter battle with our own overblown egos.”   At a time where nostalgia as a selling point is exercised more regularly than actual gameplay, it’s only fair to revisit what they intend to invoke for the player. Sure, DUSK might be the best thing…

The Persistence Review…

659
“Oh set me up with the spirit in the sky, that’s where I’m gunna go when I die.”   Just once I’d like to see a journey through the universe’s vast unknown go without a hitch in the plan. According to every piece of media not invented by Gene…

DOOM Eternal Campaign…

1761
“You sound real good and you play the part well, but the energy you givin’ off is so unfamiliar — I don’t feel ya.”   Man alive, 2020 is an absolute mess, isn’t it? That bloody virus, our stupid leaders powering the economy with our dusty bones, like there’s…

Saints Row: The…

When the original Saints Row launched in 2006 you would be hard-pressed to name something it excelled at. It wasn’t necessarily a bad game, but it seemed like a pale imitation of the Grand Theft Auto series that so heavily inspired it. It wasn’t until Saints Row II when…

One Finger Death…

“Man, I keep that heat up off for who got beef with me.”   This is an odd redemption story, to say the least. Cut to a decade back, and Silver Dollar Games was synonymous with some of the worst meme titles in the now-defunct Xbox Live Indie Games…
