The Ascent: Cyber Heist – Review

Stepping back into the Arcology after a year off made me realise how much I missed the bloody hellscape. Created by Neon Giant, this top-down twin-stick shooter was the standout Cyber Punk-inspired world in recent memory, and its heart-thumping action has been treated to its first expansion. The Cyber Heist

Since 1999, Nintendo has been the pioneer of 2D platform fighting games with the legendary Super Smash Bros series. Many other franchises have attempted to make their own crossover game using the same gameplay style, such as PlayStation, Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, and more, but none have come close to the

Capcom Fighting Collection – Review

Back in the 90s when arcades around the world were still booming, there was a highly likely chance every arcade goer played one of Capcom’s many coin-operated machines scattered around not just in arcades, but also at shopping centres, cinemas, convenience stores, and more. While 1987’s ‘Street Fighter’ was the

Final Vendetta – Review

Back in the 80s and 90s, the beat ’em up genre was one of the pioneers of the arcade scene, with classics such as Double Dragon, Final Fight, and Streets of Rage just to name a few. They brought something unique to the arcades where instead of people playing solo

Drunken Fist 2: Zombie Hangover – Review

Not to be confused with the Chinese martial art popularised by Jackie Chan in the classic Drunken Master movies, Drunken Fist 2: Zombie Hangover is the sequel to Drunken Fist, released in 2019, and published by EastAsiaSoft and developed by DEKLAZON. The original game was panned by critics for its

Kao The Kangaroo – Review

I think somewhere in our storied gaming history, every one of us grew up with a favorite gaming mascot. Some stand-outs would have to be Crash Bandicoot, Sonic, Spyro, or Banjo Kazooie, while lesser, yet still formidable known heroes such as Gex or Croc, made a short but sweet appearance

Saints Row (Hands-Off) – Preview

We thought we’d seen the last of the 3rd Street Saints back in 2013, back when they had gained so much popularity that the boss had become the President of the United States, only to see the world destroyed by the alien Zin Empire. In a Matrix-like turn of events,

Trek To Yomi – Review

I have been waiting for a game to fill the samurai-shaped void that “Ghost of Tsushima” had left, and after having the chance to play “Trek to Yomi,” developed by Leonard Menchiari with Flying Wild Hog, I was left pleasantly satisfied. This side-scrolling, black and white katana-wielding adventure has so
