King of Seas – Preview

King of Seas’ is a charming little look into an up and coming cross-platform game developed by 3D clouds. The game so far is simply a preview, but from what’s on display, it has remarkable presentation and polish. I’ve barely started and already I have high hopes for this game.

Captain Sabertooth And The Magic Diamond – Review

I didn’t know what to expect from a game targeted probably towards children but Ravn Studio, I felt personally nailed the platformer that is “Captain Sabertooth & the Magic Diamond”. It’s vibrant, easy to understand, has great mechanics, is certainly child-friendly, and has funny interactions between characters for an intriguing

Serious Sam Collection – Review

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. It’s also what I screamed when I saw there was a Trollhunters game out! “Trollhunters: Defenders of Arcadia” was developed by WayForward, a company with plenty of high-quality games under their belt, and published

Pikmin 3 Deluxe – Review

Pikmin 3 Deluxe is Nintendo’s latest creation to be ported from an older system into the newer gaming age. Having been released on the Wii U in 2013, Nintendo obviously believed that Pikmin 3 was enough fun that it could only benefit the newer hybrid gaming style of the Switch.

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

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

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

Super Mario 3D All-Stars – Review

39 years. That is how old our favourite overall wearing, princess simping, plumber is. Mario, for people my age, is history. He is a marker for moments in our lives, a historical footprint. I remember Saturday mornings playing 64 with him as a kid and afternoons after work relaxing with

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

DEX – Review

Cyberpunk is all the rage. There is definitely something attractive about imagining what the future holds for us and what technological possibilities may entangle themselves into our everyday lives. ‘DEX’ released initially on console in 2016, and now released on Nintendo Switch, will adequately fill that progressive, neon, cyber need
