BFF or Die – Review

“BFF or Die” is a multiplayer puzzle game where players are forced by necessity to work together…OR DIE! This fantastic throwback co-op is brought to us by the developers at 2Awesome Studio and, despite the brutality of the name, is as fun as it is family-friendly. Grab some friends, grab

King of Seas – Preview

King of Seas’ is a charming little look into an up and coming cross-platform game developed by 3D clouds. The game so far is simply a preview, but from what’s on display, it has remarkable presentation and polish. I’ve barely started and already I have high hopes for this game.

Captain Sabertooth And The Magic Diamond – Review

I didn’t know what to expect from a game targeted probably towards children but Ravn Studio, I felt personally nailed the platformer that is “Captain Sabertooth & the Magic Diamond”. It’s vibrant, easy to understand, has great mechanics, is certainly child-friendly, and has funny interactions between characters for an intriguing

Serious Sam Collection – Review

I’m back with my last review before my break, since my other job starts to get a little hectic this time of year, and this time I’m checking out the Serious Sam Collection. This is legit the first time I’ve ever played this series, which is weird since back in

Trollhunters: Defenders of Arcadia – Review

AAARRRGGHH!!!…is by far and away one of my favorite characters in Guillermo Del Toro’s Trollhunters world. It’s also what I screamed when I saw there was a Trollhunters game out! “Trollhunters: Defenders of Arcadia” was developed by WayForward, a company with plenty of high-quality games under their belt, and published

Outbreak: Epidemic – Review

Outbreak: Epidemic is a game made by ‘Drop Dead Studios’ and belongs to the Outbreak franchise. This game is unique in that it is designed by a single developer, a fellow known as Evan Wolbach, this is very commendable, however, this review will still be treating the game the same

Pikmin 3 Deluxe – Review

Pikmin 3 Deluxe is Nintendo’s latest creation to be ported from an older system into the newer gaming age. Having been released on the Wii U in 2013, Nintendo obviously believed that Pikmin 3 was enough fun that it could only benefit the newer hybrid gaming style of the Switch.

Chicken Police – Review

Chickens and Noir, what possibly could be a stranger combination in an investigative title. ‘Chicken Police: Paint It Red’ developed by The Wild Gentlemen (well played I saw your names in the lore) and published by HandyGames, is just that, a murder mystery, ‘who done it’ game featuring none other

Stories Untold (Xbox One) – Review

Ever felt like you have lost control of your own consciousness like someone is steering you in a direction like a puppet on some strings? Just me, ok. Sometimes life feels like we are in the car, but not necessarily steering the wheel, that is what ‘Stories Untold’, the debut

Cloudpunk – Review

Aside from the original Star Wars Trilogy, one of my all-time favorite movies is The Fifth Element, a story that takes place in a dystopian future and follows a lowly cab driver as he reluctantly becomes the hero. There are flying cars, bright neon signs, a city falling apart, and

Oddworld: New ‘N’ Tasty! – Review

From the amazing humans and Mudokons over at ‘Oddworld Inhabitants’ comes this beautiful reminder that there really is no expiration date on a quality game. 23 years after the original “Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee” introduced us to our favorite gangly, slightly funny shaped, blue hero Abe, Oddworld Inhabitants have teamed up

9 Monkeys of Shaolin – Review

Another week, another review, and this time I get the chance to play 9 Monkeys of Shaolin. I like most things to do with martial arts, especially a Cinemax show called Warrior. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend it. Now this game takes me back to old-time Kung

The Survivalists – Review

Imagine being stranded on an island, washed up on a beach with nothing but the shirt on your back. Do you think you could survive? With the steadily increasing list of survival games, I think most people feel like they’d have some idea. I mean, you can simply punch a

A group of college friends go camping in the woods, what could possibly go wrong? Sounds like another horror cliché, right? Well, Re:Turn – One Way Trip is not your standard horror game.

Projection: First Light – Review

‘Projection: First Light’ is a unique game with a classic platformer wrapper tied neatly around it. Developed by Shadowplay Studios and published by Blowfish Studios, this game is played out in the gorgeous shadow puppet style of ancient Asia. This being pretty much a beautiful artform in itself in real

Going Under – Review

Coining “Not all heroes get paychecks”, there isn’t a lot not to love about Aggro Crab’s game “Going Under” published by Team17 Digital. You never know what sort of hero is standing next to you and who would have thought it could be just a lowly intern in this humorous

Super Mario 3D All-Stars – Review

39 years. That is how old our favourite overall wearing, princess simping, plumber is. Mario, for people my age, is history. He is a marker for moments in our lives, a historical footprint. I remember Saturday mornings playing 64 with him as a kid and afternoons after work relaxing with

When The Past Was Around – Review

Puzzle games have never really been my thing. I will quite often overlook even the most obvious of details while scrutinizing things that really don’t require any attention. As a result, I find them to be somewhat frustrating to play and will generally avoid them, even really popular action-adventure puzzlers

Party Hard 2 – Review

You just want to sleep, I feel that more than anyone and I can totally understand that driving someone to a mass spree of murder. “Party Hard 2” is just that, one person’s journey into madness as the party scene destroys his life. I have never played the first ‘’Party
