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

Winter Ember – Review

When I think of a good old fashion stealth game, I think of a hooded figure with a blade as sharp as his skill set. Throw them into a Victorian-esque world with a classic revenge tale with nothing left to lose and you will have painted the picture for Sky

Weird West – Review

The Wild West is one of those magical places that can meld with pretty much anything. There was a film in 2011 called Cowboys & Aliens, and I’ve been spending a lot of time watching a YouTuber by the name of Boylei Hobby Time, who is creating his own magnificent

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,

I never thought I would be saying “Give me my husband back”, but here we are on a wife’s quest to get her hubby back from those rascally monster girls… Wife Quest, developed by Pippin Games, is a 2D retro-style platformer where you play as the cute and charismatic former

Destiny 2: The Witch Queen – Review

Destiny 2 has entered year 5 of its life cycle and they have certainly started it off with a bang for their latest expansion, The Witch Queen. Given that this has been the longest time in between major expansions for Bungie’s MMO/RPG, and with the recent purchase of Bungie studios

ELEX II – Review

A few years ago, one of my friends was telling me about this game he had discovered, a game that was so different from everything else he had played. It mixed a post-apocalyptic world with technology and magic, and a vast open-world to explore. You could collect items, forge them

Elden Ring – Review

When it comes to Soulsborne fans, some are born by the blood, others are unkindled, and some prefer to die twice. No matter where you started or how many different ways you have died, you have both cursed and praised the mad man known as Hidetaka Miyazaki. It has been

The King Of Fighters XV – Review

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

Dying Light 2: Stay Human – Review

Pretty much the only game I’ve been “Dying” to get my hands on is finally here. Techland’s post-apocalyptic open-world game Dying Light 2: Stay Human has been on my radar the moment they announced it, and more recently Techland came out suggesting that the game would take anywhere up to
