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

Masquerada: Songs and…

  Love and passion are things that don’t come across as easy as you would think.   It’s easy to love a game, if you don’t think the faults matter. However, when you’re faced with marring issues that break flow and ruin immersion, but is so expertly made in…

SwapQuest Review –…

For the ever-living forgiveness of Christ, why does every indie game need a gimmick?   Oh, it’s not enough to create an absolutely riveting story and fine-tune every single end of your loose ends, you’ve got to create a control scheme or gameplay mechanic akin to playing Guitar Heros’ Expert +…

ChromaGun Review –…

I thought the Portal clone died already, you know.   When The Turing Test came out, offering intermediate puzzles, and a philosophical and understandable story of what it truly means to be human, I figured that was it. There was no going uphill from here, Bulkhead have created the quintessential follow-up to Valve’s…

Free games are always cool right? We think so too. Xbox Games With Gold is back with new titles for the month of September, so mark your calendars. In an announcement made via Xbox Wire, it was revealed that Xbox Gold members would have their choice between Forza Motorsport 5:…

Rhythm.   Rhythm and song are quintessential to life: it’s what brings you brevity, emotion, and uplifting enlightenment. You have to subject yourself to it, give in to the beat and just let the music take over you. It’ll either lead you to the equivalent of a contact high,…

Ken Follett’s The…

You’d think more developers would make game adaptations of books nowadays.   With the advent of Telltale making millions from tie-ins and what we grudgingly accept as “video games”, you would imagine libraries flooding with publishers looking for the easiest source material to make money off of. Strangely though,…

Circuit Breakers Review…

Insanity. The same thing. Again and again.   Repetition leads to perfection. Perfection of craft, of genre and life itself. You cannot say you succeeded without trying more than once, that’s just a passage of life. Gaming has seen this exact same principle, with its solitary exception being Tetris because, it’s Tetris after…

The Unsung But…

I hate whenever somebody says a genre is dead.   When 2012 was alive and kicking, and the thought of the Mayans predictions was in the back of the peoples minds, the Horror and First Person Shooter genre were churning out clones amongst clones. Horror was practically bombarded with…

Remasters are a good way to go, aren’t they?   They’re reminding people of a golden franchise without the effort of making a new title- perfect! 10% of the work done and you reap 100% of the benefits. Capcom have been doing this for several years now, since the…

BLACKHOLE: Complete Edition…

Maybe black holes are our friends, y’know?   There’s the possibility that on the other end, there’ll be glory waiting for us. A heaven that cannot be dreamed of, an unfathomable scope of beauty, our wildest imaginations come true. Orrrrrr there’s a chance it’s just like Event Horizon and Sam Neill…
