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

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

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

Heist – Review

Heist is a noir, cat burglar game that puts you in control of a smooth, trench coat wearing, gadget wielding thief that has no name and no intention to be seen. With stealth as their key weapon of choice along with a variety of gadgets at your disposal it is

Borderlands 3 – Review

There are so many looter – shooter games available these days that we are spoiled for choice. From Destiny to The Division and even Anthem, all of them offer a vast amount of loot to be found and a seemingly limitless amount of potential to build the character the way

Hunt: Showdown – Review

Clean underwear, that’s what you will need when playing Hunt: Showdown. I am pretty sure I soiled mine just in the tutorial! Hunt: Showdown reeks with elements of games such as Resident Evil, DayZ & even a bit of an old favorite of mine, Hexen. While the horror genre is

Gears 5 – Review

It’s finally here. Gears 5 by The Coalition is out now and available to the masses, and i’m going to come out and say it right off the bat, Gears 5 is definitely one of the best installments in the Gears of War franchise. Let’s start with the campaign. In

Hot Shot Burn – Early Access

Have you ever hosted a gaming party and thought “Gee, I realllly want a fast paced, arcade shooter where me and my friends can just simply just pick our characters and play?” It’s a very specific thought process but if you answered yes, then allow us to present to you

The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan – Review

The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan is an interactive, drama horror game developed by Supermassive Games, the brilliant minds behind the highly praised PS4 exclusive, Until Dawn and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment. Now, let me just start off by saying I have been incredibly excited for this title ever

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

RAD – Review

What is with the flood of 80’s inspired games as of late? I have literally reviewed like nine or ten in the last 6 months and it seems like the fad is not dying soon. It seems with the success of television shows in the likes of Stranger Things it

Dragon Quest Builders 2 – Review

I never really understood the fad that was Minecraft. I mean, sure… digging stuff up, building things and wacking enemies with a wooden sword was kind of fun. While there are some incredible creations out there, there is really only so much you can do. Mine, build, kill and survive.

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

The Forbidden Arts – Review

I live for indie developers and the unexpected jewels they produce at times. How can you not admire the ambitiousness of a little fish in a big fish’s pond? Stingbot Games out of California, inspired by retro classics have developed ‘The Forbidden Arts’, released in Early Access on Steam in

The Church In The Darkness – Review

The Church in the Darkness is set in the late 1970’s, with you taking on the role of Vic, an ex-law enforcement officer, whose nephew Alex has joined a religious cult run by Isaac and Rebecca Walker, leaders of ‘The Collective Justice Mission’. Labelled as radicals by the US government,

Wolfenstein: Youngblood – Review

Wolfenstein: YoungBlood appears to sit comfortably right at home, warm and familiar, but in the same sense feels distant and cold, almost enstranged. This game has the internet divided at the moment, people generally don’t adjust well to change but how much change is justifiable? And is it innovative change?
