Total Tank Simulator – Review

Growing up, every person surely had this experience: Either your relative, neighbour, friend or that kid you were forced to sit and play with at play time had this basic, run of the mill, army kit. The kit was flooded with green army men, all of which were holding various

XCOM: Chimera Squad – Review

I remember seeing an edition of XCOM (XCOM: Enemy Unknown) many years ago and thinking, ‘What is this alien rampage shooter thingy?’ Shortly thereafter, I found myself strangely addicted to its turn-based battle style game. It blew my mind that the 2012 game I was currently lost in was actually

Another year, another installment. Like so many sports gaming franchises, we see yet another edition to MotoGP developed and published by the talented team at Milestone SLR. I was the chosen one who got to experience MotoGP 19. It’s been almost a year and my taste in games hasn’t changed,

Monster Train – Preview

I’ve played a few trading card games in my life. Magic: The Gathering, Pokemon, a few forgettable virtual ones, and one particularly good one. While I wouldn’t consider myself particularly good at any of them, if they have simple mechanics but offer strategic challenges, I find myself losing myself in

Two Point Hospital – Review

We’ve all played it. Growing up it was the normal thing to do. Imaginative little boys and girls, all playing pretend. Putting on a plastic stethoscope and holding it to the chest of your patient before making up some fake illness that the Doctor had to treat. Usually swallowing a

Ash of Gods: Redemption – Review

Ash of Gods: Redemption is published by Whisper Games and developed by AurumDust. Now, given I’m not too big on tactical turn-based games, I was intrigued by the RPG-like elements and art style of this title, so let’s dive into my third review of the year, shall we? Ash of

Civilization VI – Review

I’ve played a few turn based strategy games in my lifetime, most notably a few from the Total War series. My favourite part of this series was controlling the armies; setting them up, moving them into position and then commanding waves of troops as I crush the enemy underfoot. I

Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden – Review

I have never been a strategy, turn based game player. They require patience, thought-out movement and finesse. All attributes, I definitely do not possess, believe me, ask my colleagues. I loathed my last experience with one and that is no exaggeration. I’ve avoided them since. Mutant Year Zero: Road to

Kerbal Space Program – Review

When you were growing up, I’m sure the ice breaker many adults used to try and have a conversation with you (that didn’t require impersonating the high pitched speaking voice of an action figure or a doll) was “What do you want to be when you grow up?”. I’m double
