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
Fortnite Season 5 Week 9 Challenges Guide

Shape of The World Review - Epiphany Fields
Hello. How are you? Your err... hands smell nice?

 

Excuse the formalities, but I feel like maybe I've been a bit too much of a Negative Nancy lately. Here I am,
Don't Sink Review - Sea of Poop Thieves
Ahoy there, mati-- Ahh, what's the bloody point?

 

I'm not going to lie, Sea of Thieves drained my enthusiasm for pirates. If Rare's maligned baby was actually what pirates

Xbox Game Pass: September's New Games Revealed
Xbox Game Pass is about to add a heap of new games to the service. The September additions to the Netflix-style service have been unveiled; there are some big triple-A releases

How Microsoft Can…

689
E3 discussions are a dime a dozen and for good reason. There are multiple reasons to discuss the gaming industry’s biggest trade show of the year. It’s the midway point of the year and the perfect moment for companies to set up their holiday season and beyond. Traditionally, publishers…

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice…

888
Alright, the question of how to approach this game lingers in the air.   A super serious game, tackling super serious themes, with a super serious goal behind it. Ninja Theory really has made looking at this game with anything other than a straight-faced eagle eye, difficult to do.…

Square-Enix Job Listings…

644
Square Enix’s anticipated, yet unknown, Avengers game may be different than some might hope. According to the developer Crystal Dynamics’s job listing, they are looking for an external lead designer who understands “the social implications of shared gameplay.” While the listing does not directly say it’s for a Marvel…

Indie Investigation: The…

491
I wasn’t looking forward to April.   I thought it was going to be a dull month, with absolutely nothing worthwhile to look forward to unless you like the typical Sony Third-Person Exclusive. If you weren’t a fan of The Last of Us having a woman to look after,…

Adventure Pals Review…

521
Remember when you used to watch Adventure Time non-stop? Yeahhhh, you do, don’t lie.   One of the new-age vehicles of saccharine and random stupidity, accessible to all types of people. I stopped watching back in 2013 and apparently it’s only gotten weirder over time, but that still hasn’t…

Masters of Anima…

546
Right, that’s it, gaming can stop now.   From Tennis For Two on an oscilloscope to Master Chief’s left testicle in shiny 16k, it’s taken us around 40 years to get to this point which Masters of Anima pulls off flawlessly. When the characters room changes, so do the acoustics. Pack it up,…

FarCry 5 Starter…

1276
FarCry is an influential title for first-person shooters,  and while most players are veterans of the series, there’s an entire new influx of players experiencing FarCry 5 with fresh eyes. FarCry is a special kind of FPS, combining precision shooting mechanics and slight RPG-like elements in a vast open-world.…

The Hidden Gems…

1085
Ahhh, the Xbox Game Pass. What a deal.   Over 100 games for the low, low price of 7.99 a month? An offer you can’t refuse! Filled with classics like Bioshock, Braid, Guacamelee!, Sea of Thiev– Okay, nevermind. Despite the quality being all over the place, there’s no denying that the good stuff…
A Way Out Game Review

A Way Out…

956
A Way Out is a co-op game from Hazelight Studios in which two players must band together to find a way out of prison and get revenge on a jewel thief, Harvey. With local and online co-op support, you and a friend determine your own destiny. Do you want…

Minit Review –…

807
It’s surprising that the Groundhog’s Day trope doesn’t appear in video games often.   Aside from Majora’s Mask, what well-known games have used it as a great mechanic? The Sexy Brutale? Steins;Gate? Lighting Ret— Okay, nevermind. Admittedly, the difficulty of making it that such a compelling focal point is…
