Our Aporia: Beyond the Valley Review

When reviewing any game, it’s hard not to draw some initial comparisons to other predecessor games. Seeing Investigative North’s Aporia defined as a first-person, puzzle adventure game, coupled with some early screenshots, leads to the assumption that this one was a shoe-in for a Myst competitor, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. While this storytelling, adventure game differs from Myst in that...[Read More]

Our Disappointing First Hours with Dark and Light

Dark and Light has been a very unusual sort of game to play. Granted, this game has just been released into early access and with that, there will be issues everywhere. I didn’t expect it to be as bad as it is now though. Typically, I hate to be very negative when it comes to early access game but when you load into the game, you are met with some extremely annoying issues right off the bat. Snail...[Read More]

You Should Be Playing: Epic’s Fortnite

I’ve played a lot of zombie games over the years. Everything from Left 4 Dead to Dying Light has had me shooting and looting my way through some version of the post zombie apocalypse. So when I first fired up Fortnite, the long awaited Zombie hunting, sandbox survival title from a collaboration of Epic Games and People Can Fly, I had a few ideas of what to expect. However, after about four hours o...[Read More]

You Should Be Playing – The Lion’s Song

The Viennese indie developer studio Mi’pu’mi Games has mainly been involved in commissioned projects in the past, among others most prominently supporting IO Interactive with the new episodic Hitman game. Now, it makes a name for itself with its own little gem of an episodic game. The Lion’s Song does not only send you to Vienna but also back in time to the beginning of the 20th century. Each epis...[Read More]

You Should Be Playing… Slime-San: Blackbird’s Kraken

According to some, the definition of insanity is to repeat the exact same process over and over again and expect different results. In gaming, it could be the genre of speed platformers… is that a thing? It should be a thing. I just made it a thing! Speed platformers are those titles that are all about completing a series of jumps, dashes and perfect timing to complete a level within a very quick ...[Read More]

Antihero is a Whole New Kind of Strategy

The launch of Anithero is upon us. Built by Tim Conkling and published by the folks at Versus Evil, Antihero is probably best described as a cross between X-Com, Thief, and the Civilization games. It’s a fast turn-based strategy game where you play a thief trying to carve his or her own niche in a Victorian era underworld. You’ll recruit street urchins, hire thugs, ward off the law, an...[Read More]

The Master Trials Manages to Make Breath of the Wild Even Better

Breath of the Wild is a massive game. Sure you can complete it in a relatively short period of time but if you want to experience all there is in this open air game you can easily sink hundreds of hours into it. With four divine beasts to tackle, 120 shrines, and 900 korok seeds (good luck on those) the newest game in the Zelda franchise is not lacking in things to do. Now Nintendo has gone and ex...[Read More]

You Should Be Playing: Shantae: Half-Genie Hero

You may or may not have heard of Shantae: Half-Genie Hero. Kickstarted to the tune of over $750K, it was one of the crowdsourcing platform’s first big hits when it launched its campaign in 2013. Like many of you, I missed its original release at the tail end of 2016. I mean, there have been so many good games in the past six to eight months, I think we should be forgiven for missing Shantae....[Read More]

E3 2017 – What We Loved About God of War

The classic action brawler from ancient Greece, God of War, is getting an upgrade this year. Where it was once shiny and glorious, the game is now shifting to the far North of the ancient world. That means… Norse Mythology! Everyone loves the Viking gods and to bring Kratos into this universe is a great switch for the series. However, the new gods are not his only challenge. Now he has someo...[Read More]

Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind Review In Progress

When it comes to The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, two things are etched indelibly into my gaming memory: the ponderous, inexorable crescendo of the overture, and the gravelly voices of the Dunmer. This is our ESO: Morrowind Review in Progress. Right off the bat, The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind taps into nostalgia for the eponymous region of the popular game series.  The theme music, along wit...[Read More]

How Do You Judge the Biggest Gaming Franchises of All Time?

When William Higinbotham invented what is often regarded as the world’s first video game with Tennis for Two in 1958, he could never have imagined that he was kickstarting a phenomenon which would become one of the most lucrative industries on Earth. Worldwide, gaming generated an estimated $91 billion in revenue last year, with such figures proving now more than ever that this form of entertainme...[Read More]
