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.

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

This

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
