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

Rising Hell – Review

Rising Hell is a fast paced, heavy metal vertical platformer developed by Tahoe Games and published by Another Indie and Toge Productions. Being in Early Access, this roguish game brings a lot of potential and fun. Starting off, Rising Hell being in Early Access by no means should be a

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

Stela – Review

Stela developed by SkyBox Labs, not known for horroresque type platformers, is a beautifully grim tale following our hero, Stela, who must face both physical and mental demons through a desolate and decaying world. Anyone that knows me, knows these thriller type, indie creepy games are as far as I’ll

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

Neo Cab – Review

Technology, is a bane of my existence. It is engrained in every aspect of our lives and it sucks, but it is essential to progress and is rooted firmly in society. I hate it, but I rely so much on it. This game had me thinking like I often do;

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

Whipseey And The Lost Atlas – Review

Blowfish studios, the independent, Australian video game publisher are back, not long either, after dropping a previous extremely fun title, ‘SubDivision Infinity DX’. I was given the pleasure of playing and reviewing that too which is available on their website, so I was definitely excited to get my hands on

Control – Review

It’s become common knowledge around the office that I really enjoy anything relating to the supernatural. I mean, you just have to look at what I use to wear in my old clubbing days to see that I’m a little strange like that. Fortunately for me, 505 Games has recently

Subdivision Infinity DX – Review

This little gem I’ve been toiling away with recently is from Sydney based Publisher, Blowfish Studios. When I was offered this to review, I was expecting an indie style game but what I got was a little under 2Gb of pure fun! Space! The final frontier… Or is it? I
