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,

7

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?

9

Damsel (Xbox One) – Review

Somewhat surprisingly, I’m actually starting to enjoy some of the more arcade style games we’ve been getting recently. It’s been a very nice change of pace and we can generally get a pretty good idea of the game in a relatively short period of time. Plus, when you live in

Pawarumi – Review

I’m not quite old enough for Space Invaders to be a game I grew up with, but I am old enough to remember seeing it in arcades as a stand-alone system, rather than those gaming tables you quite often see in a local pub. I do, however, remember playing some

Let’s Go Nuts – Review

Let’s Go Nuts by BeardedBrothers.Games is certainly a different game, you feel right at home yet also like you are staying at that creepy aunt’s house you’ve never met before. The platforming is so familiar, but the game mechanics are a fresh and unfamiliar take on this tried and true

10

Etherborn – Review

Well, here we are again! Back and ready to re-dive into the wonderfully creative and mind-bending game of Altered Matter’s Etherborn.  Previously, I wrote about the preview / demo version of this game, giving you a vast outline of what was currently available for this title, the wonders it holds

Damsel (PC) – Review

Damsel is a fast paced, action platformer brought to you by Screwtape Studios, with its non-stop thrills and stylish look, Damsel is a speed runners and action platform players’ dream. The story is set in a world where vampires and humans co-exist, but the story primarily revolves around the main

Code Vein – Preview

Set in a post-apocalyptic dystopia, Code Vein by Bandai Namco, looks to deliver a robust story line with exhilarating game play. Players will decide their own fates as they create their own unique Revenants and embark on a quest for answers and power. Those who are strong enough to survive

God Eater 3 (Playstation 4) – Review

Coming off the massive success of reviving famed anime series Dragon Ball Z, One Piece, My Hero Academia & Naruto into massively successful RPGs and / or fighting titles, Bandai Namco Entertainment returns to console and PC gaming with a vengeance as they proudly present the third entry to their

8

The Padre – Review

I have never really played any TellTale style games. I think I gave one a shot, but I didn’t enjoy it, so much so, that I don’t even recall the name of it. To me they always felt slow and one directional. I know this isn’t always the case, but

9

Sea of Solitude – Review

Overwhelming sadness, guilt, grief and loneliness. The times we do experience these feelings, it does indeed feel as if you are drowning in an endless expanse of water. Games that highlight mental health may seem like the ‘in’ craze at the moment, but whose to say this is a bad

Dragon Star Varnir – Review

In the world of Vaneria, an ongoing war rages between humans, witches and dragons. The humans see both the witches and dragons as threats to their society and want them all dead. The dragons are large beasts who naturally want to destroy anything and everything around them. The witches have

The Sinking City – Review

The Sinking City brings life to the quirky, H.P Lovecraft mythos in this adventure and investigator game developed by Frogwares and published by Bigben Interactive. Frogwares are famously known for previously working on the Sherlock Holmes games such as the Devil’s Daughter and Crimes & Punishment. With The Sinking City,

Furwind – Review

Platforming games are a bit of a retro gamer staple. They have been around for a long time, so in saying that, it is very hard to be innovative on a tried and tested genre. What will the delightful platformer ‘Furwind’ by Boomfire Games do to make it stand out

9

Terraria – Review

I never had the chance to really get into building games such as Minecraft which is surprising because games that get the creative juices flowing have always piqued my interest. Due to the overwhelming number of children that flock to these communities, I will admit it also has scared me

Crash Team Racing: Nitro Fueled – Review

The year is 1999, a mere 5 years since the release of Sony’s PlayStation. We’ve currently spent half a decade with family friend like characters such as a dragon named Spyro, a strange slave escapee on Oddworld called Abe, a British tomb raider named Lara Croft and a cooky, orange

Layers Of Fear 2 – Review

Layers of Fear 2 is a psychological horror video game developed and published by Bloober Team who are the minds behind the first Layers of Fear and Observer. I love anything to do with horror, especially gaming! Outlast 1 & 2, Friday the 13th, I even played Slenderman when it
