Many years ago, when I first bought my Xbox 360, one of the main games I was keen on was Battlefield 4. I thoroughly enjoyed the Conquest mode but didn’t bother playing Team Death Matches. Once I got the Xbox One, I was eventually talked into buying Black Ops 4

Trollhunters: Defenders of Arcadia – Review

AAARRRGGHH!!!…is by far and away one of my favorite characters in Guillermo Del Toro’s Trollhunters world.

Twin Mirror – Preview

‘Twin Mirror’ is a story-based adventure game that is yet to be released, developed by Dontnod Entertainment and co-produced by Shibuya Productions. For a genre, I have never really come across I was very confused starting this game. I had no idea what I was doing when the game loaded

9 Monkeys of Shaolin – Review

Another week, another review, and this time I get the chance to play 9 Monkeys of Shaolin. I like most things to do with martial arts, especially a Cinemax show called Warrior. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend it. Now this game takes me back to old-time Kung

Have you ever had a dream that you felt you couldn’t wake up from? How you either had complete control or total chaos in the imaginary world you have built in your sleep. Unfold Games have taken that concept and turned it into a fluid, mind-bending, world warping puzzle, horror-inspired

The Survivalists – Review

Imagine being stranded on an island, washed up on a beach with nothing but the shirt on your back. Do you think you could survive? With the steadily increasing list of survival games, I think most people feel like they’d have some idea. I mean, you can simply punch a

Serious Sam 4 – Review

My goodness, how the hell have I slept on this series?! I remember seeing this game, back in the day, and thinking ‘What the hell is Serious Sam? Is that like BomberMan?’. I think Duke Nukem was out at the time, so I was persuaded to duke it out with

When The Past Was Around – Review

Puzzle games have never really been my thing. I will quite often overlook even the most obvious of details while scrutinizing things that really don’t require any attention. As a result, I find them to be somewhat frustrating to play and will generally avoid them, even really popular action-adventure puzzlers

The Suicide of Rachel Foster is published by Daedalic Entertainment, and developed by One O One Games, Reddoll Games, Centounopercento – 101% and Reddoll S.R.L. Walking sims are a category I never really knew existed in video games until this game was handed to me. I did a little research,

The only good part of a pandemic? Making video games even more fantastical. For example, ‘Ary and the Secret of Seasons’ introduces us to our young heroine, Aryelle, as she travels the vast world of Valdi and enjoys all four seasons- OUTDOORS! What a fantasy in 2020. Developed by eXiin

I try not to think of myself as sadistic, but Darkestville Castle is the story of a demon who spends every day terrorising the town of Darkestville…and I have never laughed so much in a video game. This classic point-and-click game developed by the (clearly hilarious) legends at Epic Llama
