Darksiders Genesis – Review

Given I predominantly play on XBOX, and until recently my game of choice was the likes of Grand Theft Auto, I never really bothered with the likes of God of War. My girlfriend at the time however, was very much into that style of game, so it was only natural

A love letter, a homage, maybe even a slight rip off of Spyro, New Super Lucky’s Tale by Playful Corp is definitely a combination of all three, and I couldn’t love it more. New Super Lucky’s Tale is an adorable 3D platformer by a relatively new studio, with a few

Civilization VI – Review

I’ve played a few turn based strategy games in my lifetime, most notably a few from the Total War series. My favourite part of this series was controlling the armies; setting them up, moving them into position and then commanding waves of troops as I crush the enemy underfoot. I
