  • The Last of Us Part 2- Story Thoughts

    January 15, 2021 by

    The Last of Us Part 2 contains one of the most divisive storylines of the generation. It also happens to be a multi-layered complex story worthy of dissection and discussion. In this article I break things down and give my thoughts on this masterful and powerful narrative.

  • 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim Review

    December 20, 2020 by

    If you’re unfamiliar with Vanillaware’s work, you’re really missing out. Generally known for side-scrolling hack and slash games with gorgeous visuals (like Odin Sphere and Dragon’s Crown), they decided to change it up and try something very different. How does this change-up compare with their previous efforts?

  • Telling Lies Review

    December 2, 2020 by

    From the developers of Her Story comes another FMV adventure. Telling Lies may have a unique concept, but does it pull it off well?

  • Hades Review

    November 15, 2020 by

    Roguelikes have been a popular genre this past decade. We’ve seen many different takes on the genre, each with their own interpretation, but still never deviating too far from the formula. Supergiant Games, after developing 3 consecutive excellent games, give us their take in the form of Hades. How does it fare in the sea of other Roguelikes?

  • Ori and the Will of the Wisps Review

    November 11, 2020 by

    The original game, Ori and the Blind Forest, was loved by many. Its beautiful visuals, amazing soundtrack, and heartwarming story are exactly why this game stood out to me. For some reason, the game didn’t resonate with me as much as it did with so many others. In terms of gameplay, the combat was weak… Read more

  • Spiritfarer Review

    November 7, 2020 by

    Spiritfarer has been described as a ‘cozy management game about death’. That’s exactly what it is. But for a game about death, it’s surprisingly cute, charming, and colourful. But does the bizarre mix of elements that this game brings pay off?

  • Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time Review

    November 2, 2020 by

    The Crash Bandicoot 4 subtitle “It’s About Time” is extremely fitting, as it’s been a whopping 22 years since the last numbered entry released back on the PS1. There’s been a lot of changes and evolution in 3D platforming since, but has this latest entry changed with the times, or does it stick to its… Read more

  • Kentucky Route Zero Review

    October 23, 2020 by

    My experience with Kentucky Route Zero was similar to what I had with the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey. On first viewing, I was confused and I think I hated it. Then after a while, I started thinking about it, and gave it another chance and eventually my feelings about it changed. The same happened… Read more

  • Fall Guys Review

    October 22, 2020 by

    The Battle Royale genre is one I never really embraced. I think it’s a great concept, but for some reason I never jumped on board. That is, until this cute little game released as a free PS Plus game and I decided to finally dive in. No regrets whatsoever! For those who don’t already know,… Read more

  • Under The Jolly Roger Review

    September 7, 2020 by

    Under The Jolly Roger now joins the fray on the Nintendo Switch, for all pirate fans who need a new adventure on the seas. Is Under The Jolly Roger the swash-buckling adventure worthy of joining the ranks of Monkey Island? Or does it walk the plank into shark-infested waters?

  • Doom Eternal Review

    July 22, 2020 by

    The sequel to the thrilling 2016 Doom reboot. Does Doom Eternal recapture the break-neck excitement of the original?

  • Judgement Review

    July 13, 2020 by

    For those who feel it’s too late to jump into the Yakuza series, Judgement may be the game for you. A variety of gameplay awaits you in the dangerous city of Kamurocho, where your sharp detective skills will be required for a series of murders.

  • Animal Crossing: New Horizons Review

    May 18, 2020 by

    The Animal Crossing series has been around for a while now, but this is my first time playing an Animal Crossing game. The idea of chilling on an island and decorating it seemed to have some appeal, and is very different to any other game I generally play, so why not give it a go?

  • Resident Evil 3 Remake Review

    April 13, 2020 by

    A year after Capcom’s release of the masterpiece Resident Evil 2 remake, now comes another remake in the form of Resident Evil 3. Does this new remake capture everything that was special about its prequel?

  • Sea of Solitude Review

    April 8, 2020 by

    Sea of Solitude attempts to do just that as it tackles multiple issues such as depression, bullying, relationship breakups, and more. That’s quite a lineup of issues, but just how well does Sea of Solitude succeed with conveying its messages, as well as being a great video game at the same time?

  • Blasphemous Review

    March 28, 2020 by

    The Soulsborne genre is certainly growing, even in the 2D space. How does Blasphemous’ take on the genre stack up with the rest?

  • Darksiders Genesis Review

    March 26, 2020 by

    The origin story for the Darksiders series is here with a brand new gameplay style! This time the series tackles the twin-stick shooter and hack and slash genre. How well does it stand out from the pack?

  • Gris Review

    March 15, 2020 by

    Gris is a puzzle platformer that tells the story about the five stages of grief. But does Gris manage to get the balance of fun gameplay and powerful storytelling just right?

  • Pokemon Sword/Shield Review

    February 8, 2020 by

    The latest main series Pokemon games are now on a home console for the first time. The expectations are high, but do these games live up to them?

  • Death Stranding review

    December 21, 2019 by

    So what happens when you have a creative genius/madman completely unrestricted and allow him to create whatever he wants? In the case of Hideo Kojima- it’s Death Stranding.

  • Life Is Strange 2 Review

    December 12, 2019 by

    Dontnod have a reputation of delivering powerful stories with equally powerful themes and messages. After the success of the first Life Is Strange series, can Dontnod give us another compelling series?

  • The Outer Worlds Review

    December 8, 2019 by

    Obsidian, the creators of Fallout: New Vegas, have taken what they know fans love about that franchise and created their own new IP. But how well do they replicate that decision making aspect and how well does The Outer Worlds differentiate itself?

    A unique psychological action thriller from the creators of Alan Wake. Blast your way through the Old House and uncover the mysteries within!

  • metro exodus

    Metro Exodus Review

    July 2, 2019 by

    The latest Metro changes the genre up and really tries to push the series in a bold new direction. Does this change pay off though?

  • cuphead

    Cuphead Review

    May 27, 2019 by

    Old run and gun platformers were always known for their challenge. Cuphead brings that to the modern day, but is it a thing of the past?
