Jumanji: The Video Game – Review

Where do I start. What started off as a well respected movie by adults and children alike, followed in the footsteps of many cherished movies with a rebooted; updated for newer audiences with a few tweaks to keep up with the times. Evolving from a movie about a board game,

Darksiders Genesis – Review

Given I predominantly play on XBOX, and until recently my game of choice was the likes of Grand Theft Auto, I never really bothered with the likes of God of War. My girlfriend at the time however, was very much into that style of game, so it was only natural

GRIS – Review

GRIS is an indie platform adventure game by Spanish Indie studio, Nomada Studio, and published Devolver Digital. The game’s story revolves around a young girl named Gris. After waking up inside the hands of a statue of a woman, she tries to sing but chokes up before the statue’s hands

New Super Lucky’s Tale – Review

A love letter, a homage, maybe even a slight rip off of Spyro, New Super Lucky’s Tale by Playful Corp is definitely a combination of all three, and I couldn’t love it more. New Super Lucky’s Tale is an adorable 3D platformer by a relatively new studio, with a few

Black Future ’88 – Review

Black Future ’88 is a 2D platform, retro, sci-fi, rogue-like shooter published by Good Shepherd Entertainment and developed by SuperScarySnakes, who animatedly describes the game’s style as “Synth-Punk”. This simple, yet very challenging game brings a lot of high intensity action similar to Contra and Dead Cells, but set in

Toki – Review

Remakes are all the rage these days. Almost every year there will be a new remake on at least a few films, TV shows or video games. Some are good, and some really shouldn’t have been touched at all! Now, with bated breath, we arrive at this game; a blast

Syberia Trilogy – Review

The Syberia trilogy is a franchise of greatly loved games that spans a 17 year lifetime, definitely an admirable feat. Developed by Microids, this collection of niche, story adventure titles are now available on the Nintendo Switch as a bundle. It would be good to note that this is neither

Blacksad: Under The Skin – Review

Blacksad – Under The Skin is a game developed by Pendulo Studio, YS Interactive and published by Microids. As we look further into the developers and publisher, it seems as though crime thrillers are this groups bread and butter, and this game is no exception. A classic “Who done it?”

Death Stranding – Review

A few months ago, we here at MKAU Gaming held a podcast revolving around E3 and what was announced. There was so much that caught our attention, and we all got extremely excited as we saw new titles flash up on the big screen. One such game was Death Stranding,

Close To The Sun – Review

Let me start by saying that horror games are my jam. I much prefer them over almost any other genre, with the exception of RPG’s. Recently, there have been quite a few games that have come out, and while some been absolutely brilliant, more have been a bit of a

The Outer Worlds – Review

Given how much I adore the Fallout franchise, it often comes as a surprise to people when they find out I never played Fallout: New Vegas. The main reason for this, is that I never really felt like anyone but Bethesda could pull off a game like that. Having said

Ghost Blade HD – Review

Ghost Blade HD is a new top down shoot’em up available for the Nintendo Switch. Sadly, it fails to hit the nail on the head before it even begins, as it doesn’t really offer anything new to the genre. Instead, relying purely on nostalgia to pull in players. Expecting you

ReadySet Heroes – Review

I’m normally a big fan of dungeon crawlers. Making my way across the map, exploring every nook and cranny looking for that epic weapon, or that one armour piece that makes you resistant to all damage types. Leveling up a character and choosing my own destiny has a huge appeal

Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince – Review

After the not so well received Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power, the Finnish game studio, Frozenbyte, is back with its sequel, Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince. The fourth installment in the series aims to redeem itself from the previous game, which actually came close to shutting the studio down.

Walking Zombie 2 – Review

Walking Zombie 2 was developed and published by Alda Games. This new free to play, zombie apocalypse first person shooter offers a whole lot of fun. It’s an energetic and funny shooter with RPG elements and a cartoon/Minecraft look that does not take itself too seriously. With a story-line that

The Eyes Of Ara – Review

Developed by 100 Stones Interactive, an independent studio founded by Ben Droste and based in Brisbane, Australia, The Eyes of Ara is an award-winning, puzzle adventure game originally released on Android and iOS devices, as well as Steam and now released on Nintendo Switch. The game is set in a

Concrete Genie – Review

People who feel isolated or lonely will quite often turn to creative media for an outlet, a way to express themselves. Whether it be drawing, painting, music, writing or something else, we all have our own way of coping. For me, it was creative writing and painting toy soldiers. Unfortunately,

Destiny 2: Shadowkeep – Review

Shadowkeep, Destiny 2’s first expansion puts players up against The Nightmares. The Nightmares are essentially the ghosts of some of your favorite enemies from the past 5 years of the Destiny universe. The Nightmares are pretty much the same enemies we’ve all seen before since the series started with one

Deliver Us The Moon – Review

Space: the final frontier. The entire concept of space, zero gravity, no sound and the infinite number of possible planets and possibilities they present are truly mind-boggling. So, when this game landed in my virtual lap, and it was space related, I knew I had to look at this endeavor…

Shadows And Dust – Review

Shadows and Dust is an unique interactive experience that presents a deeply personal interaction with themes of suicide, mental illness and depression all based on representations of the author’s own nightmares. Without a warning, Shadows and Dust throws you straight into the world that is created via a combination of

Code Vein – Review

Back in May, I was fortunate enough to be given access to the Close Beta for Code Vein. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to play as much as I would have liked due to other work commitments, and I didn’t really progress as far as I probably should have, but what
