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

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

Feral Fury Review…

555
Maybe the top-down roguelike twin-stick shooter is getting to be too much now. The content and the name.   I could probably name 100 off the top of my head, and maybe another 200 after that. I personally think the genre was topped with Neurovoider, Flying Oak Games’ perfection of the…

BlackSea Odyssey Review…

586
Pirates are surprisingly untouched in video game history.   Aside from Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, can you think of more than five good pirate games without resorting to Google? I mean, there’s Sid Meier’s Pirates, Monkey Island and the Shantae series, and that’s pretty much it when it comes to it. We’re seeing a mild…

BLEED Review –…

560
Ah, the 360 indie market of olde.   The original Capital Wasteland, where there were no rules, and no mercy. The dreams were covered by the filth and the dirt of the streets, people looking for that easy cash from gullible Minecraft players, and the pre-pubescent teens looking for boob-filled adventurers.…

Masquerada: Songs and…

640
  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 –…

787
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 –…

478
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:…

Thumper Review –…

551
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…

587
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…

652
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…
