I’m back with my last review before my break, since my other job starts to get a little hectic this time of year, and this time I’m checking out the Serious Sam Collection. This is legit the first time I’ve ever played this series, which is weird since back in

Trollhunters: Defenders of Arcadia – Review

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

Chicken Police – Review

Chickens and Noir, what possibly could be a stranger combination in an investigative title. ‘Chicken Police: Paint It Red’ developed by The Wild Gentlemen (well played I saw your names in the lore) and published by HandyGames, is just that, a murder mystery, ‘who done it’ game featuring none other

Stories Untold (Xbox One) – Review

Ever felt like you have lost control of your own consciousness like someone is steering you in a direction like a puppet on some strings? Just me, ok. Sometimes life feels like we are in the car, but not necessarily steering the wheel, that is what ‘Stories Untold’, the debut

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

Oddworld: New ‘N’ Tasty! – Review

From the amazing humans and Mudokons over at ‘Oddworld Inhabitants’ comes this beautiful reminder that there really is no expiration date on a quality game. 23 years after the original “Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee” introduced us to our favorite gangly, slightly funny shaped, blue hero Abe, Oddworld Inhabitants have teamed up

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

DARQ – Review

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

Projection: First Light – Review

‘Projection: First Light’ is a unique game with a classic platformer wrapper tied neatly around it.

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 – Review

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

Darkestville Castle – Review

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

Relicta – Review

This first-person, physics-based puzzle game developed by Mighty Polygon and published by Ravenscourt is one challenge I dove into. Now it may be hard to believe, but I’m probably one of the few people that have never really played games like Portal or other physics/puzzle games. I’m not known for
