Alan Wake Remastered – Review

Lost Judgment – Review

‘Lost Judgment’, a sequel to 2018’s “Judgment” is by far the most ambitious and narratively unique experience I have had the pleasure of playing in 2021. Developed by legendary “Rya Ra GotoKu” and published by the iconic “SEGA”, players will once again revisit Kamurochi, Tokyo, and the newly designed Isezaki

In Sound Mind – Review

The shoe that fits one person, pinches another; there is no recipe for living that suits all cases. A rather fitting quote by Carl Jung for my experience with “In Sound Mind” by developer We Make Stuff. I’m not usually an avid fan of the horror genre, however, the concept

World War Z: Aftermath – Review

‘World War Z’ released in 2019 and made by Saber Interactive, came out swinging hard as it grew a great community on release. I bought this on day one and loved every moment that the game had to offer. A zombie survival game much like ‘Left 4 Dead’, it features

Life Is Strange: True Colors – Review

Developed by Deck Nine and published by Square Enix, Life Is Strange: True Colors is an emotional rollercoaster that will have you in tears of joy and sadness. True Colors is a decision and consequence-based RPG; however, it feels more like an interactive animated movie. For me it was a

For someone that had no idea about ‘Tales of Arise’ at the start of the year to someone that was giddy with anticipation once I played the demo, I am now a full-blown fanboy after playing the full release. Developed and published by Bandai Namco Studios, this single-player JRPG will

Quake Remastered – Review

It is nostalgia time again as Quake Remastered is out from the original developer, id Software, along with Nightdive Studios, and published by Bethesda Softworks. This brings me back to the old days of fighting over the one computer in the house with six children to play Quake. Being the

The Big Con – Review

Those of us that experienced the 90’s, either as a kid or young adult, can sometimes aggressively cling to the past. Simultaneously agreeing it was terrible and the best time to be alive, backwards caps and scrunchies were unironically fashionable, and baggy ripped Jeans were a staple. Thanks to Mighty

It’s been a LONG time since Psychonauts was released, over 15 years ago actually but the wait is finally over. Double Fine’s classic humor, signature gameplay, and creative platforming are back in Psychonauts 2. Psychonauts 2 takes place after the events of the original game, and you once again play

Greak: Memories Of Azur – Review

One of the oldest sayings still about is “don’t judge a book by its cover,” and it has never been more prevalent than my experience with Greak: Memories of Azur.
