Saints Row (Hands-Off) – Preview

We thought we’d seen the last of the 3rd Street Saints back in 2013, back when they had gained so much popularity that the boss had become the President of the United States, only to see the world destroyed by the alien Zin Empire. In a Matrix-like turn of events,

Trek To Yomi – Review

I have been waiting for a game to fill the samurai-shaped void that “Ghost of Tsushima” had left, and after having the chance to play “Trek to Yomi,” developed by Leonard Menchiari with Flying Wild Hog, I was left pleasantly satisfied. This side-scrolling, black and white katana-wielding adventure has so

Skábma – Snowfall – Review

Skábma – Snowfall is the latest 3rd person game I’ve played that has taken the non-violent approach in its gameplay and focused on bringing challenging game mechanics mixed with an intriguing and educational storyline. What makes Skábma – Snowfall stand apart from them is what the game represents, the story

Postal 4: No Regerts – Review

Postal 4: No Regrets, is no regrets by name and no regrets by nature, as players are slapped in the face and placed smack dab into a world where political correctness is thrown out the window. Developed and Published by Running with Scissors, we skip over Postal 3 and return

Dodgeball Academia – Review

Now, ‘Dodgeball Academia’ by Pocket Trap and Ivan Freire is certainly one of the more unique games I have played in a while. Who would have thought a sports game and an RPG would have smashed together so fluidly? Not me, that’s for sure. You play as our hero, Otto,

Nightmare Reaper – Review

Over the years there have been many retro-styled FPS games, I mean ‘Doom’, ‘Wolfenstein’ and’ Duke Nukem’ defined gaming in the early days. The only issue is that these games were inventive for their days, they were new, fresh, and they were the grandfathers of their own genre. Many a

Card Shark (DEMO) – Preview

Card Shark, for me at least, is a very skilled game to take on. Trust me when I say, “Keep a constant eye on the Card Shark. He will cheat you before you have even realized you’re partaking in the game.” Whilst playing, you start off with some low-grade cheats

The King of Fighters series by SNK was one of the pioneers of the arcade scene from the mid-’90s to the early 2000s, but the history of its characters goes back even further. The original game, King of Fighters ’94, brought together characters from SNK’s other fighting games, including 1991’s
