Dead Space (Xbox Series X) – Review

The original Dead Space came out back in 2008 and instantly became one of my all-time favourite games. Even today, this science-fiction horror masterpiece still holds up, so when Motive and Electronic Arts announced a “Remake”, I was beyond excited to see what they would do with it. For those

Breakers Collection (Xbox Series X) – Review

The 90s was an era that helped define the arcade scene and fighting game genre. Amongst all the Street Fighters, Mortal Kombats, Tekkens, King of Fighters, and more, were also a handful of lesser-known, obscure fighters that often imitated, or took inspiration from the more successful and established titles. One

The Callisto Protocol – Review

I loved the Dead Space games, and when I heard the co-creator was the director of a new game I was instantly excited. I watched a single trailer for the game, said to myself “I need this” and then patiently waited for the release. With it finally here, I got

Miraculous: Rise Of The Sphinx – Review

Published by GameMill Entertainment and developed by Magic Pockets, Miraculous: Rise of the Sphinx is the latest video game adaptation based on the popular French animated children’s show, Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir. The show debuted in 2015 and has been going strong ever since, with more than

8

Somerville (Xbox Series X) – Review

Mystery. An air of mystery goes a long way for me in a game. There is something about diving into the unknown to solve mysteries with great consequences and winding trials. ‘Somerville’ developed by JumpShip, while dark and mysterious, answers none of my lingering questions at its conclusion. Without giving

Goat Simulator 3 – Review

Baa, baaa. BAAAAA!!! Oh, sorry, I forgot I’m not actually a goat. These simulators aren’t always the most realistic, but this one sure is a lot of fun and easy to get lost in for hours on end. Developed by Coffee Stain North, Goat Simulator 3, AKA the 2nd one…

Them’s Fightin’ Herds – Review

Them’s Fightin Herds, by Mane 6, Inc. is the biggest ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’ game I have played all year, and I loved it. Masking itself as a cutesy animal adventure, and it somewhat is, this is, in fact, a fighting title that certainly brings the heat.

Cobra Kai 2: Dojos Rising – Review

Flux Game Studio has, for the second time, brought back a family-known name with Cobra Kai 2: Dojo’s Rising. This is the second game released with this title, the first being Cobra Kai: The Karate Kid Saga Continues, back in 2020 from the same developer. It’s based on the characters

Sonic Frontiers – Review

Since 1991, everyone’s favourite hedgehog has been cruising around at the speed of sound across SEGA’s entire console history, all the way to modern consoles. Taking over for ‘Alex Kidd’, Sonic has been the face of SEGA and a pop culture icon for over 30 years. His early games made

The Chant (Xbox Series X) – Review

First-time developers, Brass Token, are a small team with a big dream, and with publishers, Prime Matter and Plaion backing them, they have released their first title, The Chant.

Star Trek Prodigy: Supernova – Review

Inviting a younger audience into such a large franchise with a game is always good, and Star Trek Prodigy: Supernova is just that, so welcome to the Star Trek universe, little ones, but hey, that’s not to discourage older fans. You might just find something in this game for you

7

Gotham Knights – Review

I think it’s safe to say, and many would agree, that the Batman: Arkham series, by Rocksteady, set the bar pretty high with its storytelling and gameplay mechanics. So when Warner Bros announced Gotham Knights, developed by WB Games Montreal, I was pretty excited to see what they had in

Dragonball: The Breakers – Review

There are many generation-defining moments in pop culture, and a universal moment in history was seeing Goku turn Super Saiyan for the first time. The lead-up to this very moment was following the ultimate bad guy at the time, Frieza, as he terrorised the people of Namek. The fear that
