Capcom Fighting Collection – Review

Back in the 90s when arcades around the world were still booming, there was a highly likely chance every arcade goer played one of Capcom’s many coin-operated machines scattered around not just in arcades, but also at shopping centres, cinemas, convenience stores, and more. While 1987’s ‘Street Fighter’ was the

Kao The Kangaroo – Review

I think somewhere in our storied gaming history, every one of us grew up with a favorite gaming mascot. Some stand-outs would have to be Crash Bandicoot, Sonic, Spyro, or Banjo Kazooie, while lesser, yet still formidable known heroes such as Gex or Croc, made a short but sweet appearance

Sniper Elite 5 – Review

Sniper Elite 5 is the latest installment from the team over at Rebellion. Set in Nazi-occupied France and taking place just before the events of D-Day, you once again play as Karl Fairburne, where he finds himself sneaking past the Atlantic Wall to rendezvous with the French Resistance. Sniper Elite

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

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,

Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands – Review

Its Bunkers and Badasses BAAAABYYYYYYYYYYY! Grab your character sheets, your d20, and let’s start lootin’ an’ shootin’! Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands is FINALLY here, roughly 2.5 years after the release of Borderlands 3.

Wife Quest – Review

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

Set before the events leading up to the original ‘Ghostrunner’, the villainous android, Hel, now parkours and slashed its way onto your devices. ‘Ghostrunner: Project_Hel’ is the newest paid DLC by the combined efforts of studios, Slipgate Ironworks and One More Level, and brings 7 new stages and new advancements

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

OlliOlli World – Review

All good things come in three – and OlliOlli is no different, with British game developer Roll7 returning for their upcoming third game “OlliOlli World”, now skating closer to its release date! OlliOlli World is a bright, colourful, and downright fun 2D-platforming skateboarding game. You start off in the new

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

God of War (PC) – Review

Spiderman isn’t the only one who’s far from home. Our favorite anti-hero, the God killer, Kratos, is very far from home. He’s been in Midgard for the last 3 years but now he’s finally moved out of his cramped, underperforming shack to play with the big boys in the penthouse

Trash Sailors – Review

Surviving the high seas is a challenge, but with a trusty crew and the right amount of trash, you can overcome the hardiest of sea voyages. In this new game by developers fluckyMachine and publisher Tiny Build comes a unique world where one man’s trash is a ship Captain’s treasure.

Chorus – Review

Flying a spaceship has always been a cool idea for a video game and yet, it’s such a small market of games. Don’t get me wrong, the game pool may be shallow for recent titles to pick from, but the fan base for this genre is very strong and quite

Nerf Legends – Review

For my entire childhood, Nerf guns were a staple in fuelling my imagination of a wild shoot-out in my backyard or living room. Whether I was trying to emulate Rambo with a giant machinegun-style Nerf blaster as a kid, or John Wick with a Nerf pistol as an adult, the

TY The Tasmanian Tiger HD – Review

G’day, mate! Let’s take a step back in time to 2002 as we get to relive the PS2 Aussie Crash Bandicoot spinoff, Ty the Tasmanian Tiger HD. Krome Studios have brought back this classic gem and put it on the current generation of consoles, and this review was done on

Riders Republic – Review

As a gamer, the thought of going outside is a strange and foreign concept but thanks to Ubisoft, we get to digitally head to the mountains for some extreme sports. The world is your oyster with access to mountain biking, skiing, snowboarding, rocket wings and glide suits set across geographically

Crysis Remastered Trilogy – Review

There’s a famous saying: If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Well, in this case, the clearly functional Crysis Trilogy was only broken by its original system, PlayStation 3. Now, Crytek has done an incredibly impressive job on bringing the famous trilogy back into modern-day gaming life, by remastering (aka

Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl – Review

All the way back in 1999, the legends of Nintendo were brought together in a crossover brawl for all of epic proportions when ‘Super Smash Bros’ was released on the Nintendo 64. Since then, the Smash Bros series has always raised the bar higher and higher with each sequel and
