Marvel’s Midnight Suns – Review

The Marvel universe has exploded in popularity since the release of Iron Man back in 2008, and while Marvel video games have been around for longer than I can remember, they too, benefited from the beginning of the MCU, but they’ve all been fairly similar in terms of style and


Floodland – Review

It’s the end of the world as we know it, or at least, a world that isn’t set adrift by water. So where do all the people go? That’s the question the team at Vile Monarch seeks to answer with post-collapse survival city-builder sim, Floodland. Most of the world’s population


Pokémon Violet – Review

It’s Christmas for Pokémon fans all over. This year we have had not one, but two Pokémon game releases. This is unheard of. Usually, one generation is released, and then in 1-3 years, a new one will come out, but not in 2022, baby! 10 months after Pokémon Legends Arceus

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


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…


McPixel 3 – Review

McPixel 3 is a pixelated puzzle solver game where the answers are never straightforward and most of the time ridiculous. Similar to its prequel, it’s equipped with a hundred timed stages, with microgames and a plethora of quirky gags and silly solutions. Developed by Mikołaj ‘Sos Sosowski’ Kamiński and produced


Pentiment (Xbox Series X) – Review

Players will find themselves engaged with the story and hooked on the characters they will meet as they play. Coming November 15th, It will be available through the Steam store, as well as


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

RandoMine – Preview

The heroes of this story are about to be made Demigods! How else would you celebrate by having a massive night on the ales at the local tavern? Unfortunately, these soon-to-be Demigods drink the tavern out of all available liquor. A rumor goes around that the innkeeper has some super-secret


Harvestella (Nintendo Switch) – Review

Eat up to beat up is the essence of the new Nintendo Switch title, Harvestella, from veteran JRPG publisher, Square Enix. The fusion of action RPG and the farm sim trend seems like a promising concept, but there’s definitely room to grow, as was my experience with Harvestella. Your character


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. This third-person, horror-action-adventure game sets to test your mental fortitude when it comes to surviving on an isolated island when things


Victoria 3 – Review

Developed by Paradox Games and set in the exciting and transformative 19th-century Victorian era, balance the competing interests in your society and earn your place in the world of Victoria 3. It offers a crazy in-depth world, full of opportunities and possibly many downfalls based on the decisions you make.


Sackboy: A Big Adventure (PC) – Review

Sackboy: A Big Adventure has finally arrived on PC! The port of the 2020 released PlayStation title comes with new graphical upgrades, the same great content, and additional in-game goodies.

Broken Pieces (Playstation 5) – Review

Broken Pieces follows the story of Elise, a woman trapped in a sort of Groundhog Day, however, everyone else has vanished, including her music-creating partner, Pierre. Elise, with her cassette player, trusty pistol, and magic storm stone, must venture out to uncover why this quaint French coastal town of Saint-Exil


Bayonetta 3 – Review

Bayonetta is an icon and seductress amongst both men and women gamers. A symbol that power can be beauty; a beauty that doesn’t need a male companion to lead the narrative. ‘Bayonetta 3,’ by PlatinumGames, is the third illustrious addition to the cult classic and muchly loved Bayonetta franchise.
