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]

Portal Knights is a Refreshing Surprising Open Sandbox RPG

Sometimes games surprise you and Portal Knights is an open sandbox RPG that packs more than just a little punch. The game has heart and takes you off on simple adventures through an ever-changing voxel world which you can manipulate and explore. Where Portal Knights succeeds is in its ability to combine stories within its open world format. This is our Portal Knights review. Choosing your characte...[Read More]

Mages of Mystralia Review in Progress

Mages of Mystralia from Borealys Games, lands on Steam today. We’ve just snagged our codes and I’m on travel for an event for Destiny 2, but that didn’t stop me from playing about 3 hours of the immensely Kickstarted game in my hotel room. I kept saying, “After this little quest, I’ll go to bed.” But like a good Zelda game (is there a bad Zelda game?), Mages of ...[Read More]

Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days is a time-warping good time

Big Star Games was kind enough to send over a demo of their upcoming top-down action shooter, Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days. Based on the classic Tarantino film, Bloody Days isn’t a shot for shot movie-to-game adaptation. Rather, it’s an homage to the characters and action of the film, with a clever time-warping mechanic that elevates it above normalcy into something worth playing. This ...[Read More]

Our Prey Bullet Point Review in Progress

I have to admit that Prey isn’t usually the kind of game that I play. I generally have always generally liked third person games better. I guess there’s something to be said for seeing your character, right? At any rate, however, I’ve been watching Prey’s development and the ramp up to last week’s release with interest. Not only is the premise of the story interesting...[Read More]

Prey: How a Demo Saved Me $60

It’s been awhile since major game releases put out demos before they launched. The last few weeks, however, have been sort of a renaissance for this practice. Dragon Quest Heroes II, Snipperclips, Puyo Puyo Tetris, and now Prey have all released demos on the PS4, XBox One, and Switch. Granted some of those games had bigger budgets than the others but Bethesda took a leap of faith and made the demo...[Read More]

The Best (Not So) Secret Locations in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Zelda: The Breath of the Wild is one of the best games to play in 2017, and possibly of all time. In terms of progression, graphics, and storytelling we think that the game deserves 10/10. Because it is an open world game, you will have to find everything yourself where the possibilities will become unlimited. But this can take hours if you keep on roaming around the open world; instead, here are ...[Read More]

A Girl Named Zelda

I had a comfortable mundane life once. In that life, I had things. Nothing special compared to other things but special in that they were mine, they belonged in my life. They were nice regular person things. I had friends, I had family, sometimes on overcast days I even ventured outdoors. Sometimes I did comfortable mundane things in my comfortable mundane life. She moved like a hurricane but some...[Read More]
