GUILTY GEAR -STRIVE- – Review

GUILTY GEAR -STRIVE- is a fighting game and the seventh game in the main arch. Developed and produced by Arch System Works, I have mixed feelings about this one. At one point I liked it, then I wanted to delete it. Now, I am a huge fan of fighting games

Maid Of Sker – Review

Picture this, it’s 1898 and you are relaxing by the fire in your Welsh cottage and you receive a letter from your girlfriend. A simple request, journey to her family’s lovely Hotel on Sker Island and bring her home. Slightly nervous as you have never met her family, you pack

BIOMUTANT – Review

Since Covid hit, we, the gamers, have been quietly waiting for a solid RPG to come and eat all our time up. Games have been quite scarce with deadlines being pushed back, production slowing down, and projects just being canned altogether. Hype is at fever pitch at the moment for

DEATHLOOP (Hands-Off) – Preview

GTFO – Review

The definition of GTFO perfectly sums up the atmosphere, intensity, and general gameplay that is the GTFO the game. There is even an encouraging little disclaimer on the Steam page that states “Very Challenging experience, probably too hard for most players”. GTFO is not for the faint-hearted, but for fans

Boomerang X – Preview

Developed by Dang! And published by Devolver Digital, ‘Boomerang X’ has no planned release date on Steam, which breaks my heart because I couldn’t recommend this game enough. Boomerang X is all about small/medium/big arena fights with a boomerang that you get to toss and teleport while using a couple

Size Matters – Review

This is it, my friends. Definitive proof that, despite what many of my partners have tried to reassure me, size really does matter. At least it certainly does when you’re a rapidly shrinking scientist doing your best to concoct a cure! Brought to us by the developers at Mazen Games,

Space Otter Charlie – Review

In a world of modern-day shooters, smash and grab PVP, and intense story-driven action-adventure games, the classic puzzle platformers tend to take a backseat, but rummage around behind the seats and you’ll often find some long, lost gems hidden away. Such is the game of Space Otter Charlie; a blink-and-you’ll-regret-you-missed-it

Oddworld: Soulstorm – Review

Oddworld: Soulstorm, developed by Oddworld Inhabitants is the newest installment of the Oddworld series and a re-imagining of Abe’s Exoddus. Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee was I believe the very first PlayStation game I ever owned when I got a PS1 for my birthday in 1997. As mentioned earlier this is the

What Comes After – Review

“What Comes After” by Rolling Glory Jam and Fahmitsu, isn’t an incredibly long game but it is a game that will make you look at the world for the better, something we all definitely need in this trying time. What Comes After opens up the heart and the mind; a

DOOM 3: VR Edition – Review

Bethesda’s DOOM franchise has been around for a while now, from its humble beginnings in basic 3D corridors with .gif enemies, to its most recent edition with ray tracing and high-poly enemies and environments. It is certainly one of Bethesda’s best-known titles, and for good reason; it is incredible. DOOM

Bladed Fury – Review

‘Bladed Fury’ published and developed by NEXT Studios (another Tencent studio might I add), is certainly not inventing the wheel but with its simplistic hack and slash qualities and manageable RPG elements is certainly a dang good time. In a feudal China, warring dynasties fight for power, and dark magic

Eximius: Seize The Frontline – Review

Eximius: Seize the Frontline is a unique cross between first-person shooters and strategy-like tactical games, created and published by Ammobox Studios. Its very unique detailings and generic tactical gear create an interestingly developed game that has had the dedication of its developers and artists. Eximius: Seize the Frontline is set

Breathedge – Review

There’s an old saying that goes: “Never judge a book by its cover”. I’m sure you’ve heard that line before, right? If not, it basically means appearances can be deceiving. Well, the cover art for this game is definitely deceiving. You may be hindered by the image of an astronaut
