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
Fortnite’s Season 5, Week 9 challenges have finally gone live. This week's challenges are finicky and annoying to complete. There are 3 free Battle Pass challenges and 4 premium
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

“Do you think God stays in heaven because he fears what he’s created here on Earth?”   The infamous line from Spy Kids 2 has resonated with me for years, all the way back when I was a little tyke watching those stupid films. I’m a nihilistic person at heart, and…

The Way Review:…

418
This week was a bit awful, I’ll admit.   Summer Spotlight trundled out in full force as per, with the promise of interesting titles galore. But after some time, that promise slowly decayed into an evening of disappointment for your debonair host. The Long Dark was looking to be an interesting…

Vostok Inc Review:…

421
Another day, another twin stick shooter from a small UK studio.   The Summer Spotlight continues with full force through August, with some bigger titles coming into play this week. The Long Dark and Tacoma are titles that will be covered later in the week but before that, we have the equivalent…

Remember when Minecraft came to public attention?   God, what a storm. Every man, woman, child and bacterial cell came out of the woodwork to praise its sheer scope of creativity and like always, the imitators arrived in full force, looking to make a quick dollar. Castleminer Z, Terraria, No Man’s Sky,…

Conga Master Review

714
I have played some.. Avant-garde titles, as of late.   In the past 6 or 7 months, I’ve played some of the weirdest titles to ever grace my systems. Mr. Pumpkin Adventure, Sylvio, The Town of Light, 6180 The Moon, Crypt of The Serpent King, to name a few. Every single…

Moon Hunters Review:…

799
Going out of your comfort zone isn’t too bad sometimes.   It’s nice to venture beyond what you know you like in favour of a total gamble, and finding out that gamble was a successful move. Oxenfree, Claire, de Blob 2, Westerado, are all titles that come from genres / people…

Deadcore Review

545
Yeah, don’t ask me, I have no idea what this is either.   Ever heard of Deadcore? No? How could you not? It’s clearly at the forefront of the unending queue of Portal clones! Q.U.B.E? The Turing Test? Back down! DeadCore is here to show all those posers how it’s don— Ok, I’ll…

Iron Crypticle Review

674
Goddamn, I like a good ol’ twin-stick shooter.   It’s a simplistic genre, yet so engaging. Geometry Wars, Smash TV, and Tachyon Project, are all bite-sized brilliance that anybody can get into. At its worst, these games are boring, which is rare, but could happen. Thankfully, Iron Crypticle has proven to be a worthy addition…

Black The Fall…

710
If I took a tequila shot for every atmospheric puzzle-platformer I’ve played since LIMBO first blessed us in 2010, I would’ve died three years ago.   The arty puzzle-platformer is a dime a dozen nowadays, ever since Braid graced us with it’s unique gameplay premise and unorthodox storytelling that might’ve been about a…

Tokyo 42 Review

775
Admittedly, I’m a bit late.   At the time of writing, Tokyo 42 is a month old; releasing in May 2017 meant this game took a backseat to all the other titles that were hot on the shelves. Sadly, this isn’t the first time this has happened this year; the…

PAX East 2019: Star Renegades

Some people have that one genre they just keep coming back to. Some people love precision platformers, some love JRPGs, some love souls/borne style games, I like retro-style roguelikes. They’re…
