Mantis Burn Racing Review

Many, many years ago, I huddled around a smallish, CRT TV with my early childhood friends, their Nintendo Entertainment System, and Micro Machines: The Video Game for a day of racing. If you were not yet a twinkle in your parents’ eyes during this era, Micro Machines were tiny toy cars – like a Matchbox or Hot Wheels baby sibling. They weren’t cutesy, just small. Their thematic video game to...[Read More]

Regions of Ruin Review

Across the landscape of many mythos, dwarves have a limited range of activities that they truly find joy in. Typically, those things fall into three categories: mountains, mining, and mead! One cannot blame them for their reclusion in a world of Man though, specifically in Tolkien’s Middle Earth. I imagine that they would find themselves often mistaken as taller, hairier Hobbits or short, squat me...[Read More]

L.A. Noire Review

Wow. Now, I know what all the fuss was about. Back when LA Noire originally launched on the PS3, I wasn’t really playing my console that much. Now on the Switch, not only do I finally get to play it, but I get to see exactly why everyone was so keen about MotionScan, the technology used to capture the most detailed facial expressions I’ve ever seen in a game. LA Noire on the Switch is ...[Read More]

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 Review

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 is a massive game, it has the most Marvel characters in one place you’re liable to find for some time. It’s an exercise in IP variety that Tt Games does oh-so-well. The problem then isn’t that there’s not a lot to do in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2, it’s that the gameplay feels like we’ve been doing the same thing since the LEGO action g...[Read More]

Valve Battles Steam Review Manipulation with New Measures

Valve recently announced a series of changes to the way that Steam users digest a game’s reviews by using simple longitudinal graphs of user scores. However, it appears that this was not enough and the battle continues. In a new blog post today, Steam users are being informed of a pair of new changes coming to how “helpful̶...[Read More]

This is our Battle Chef Brigade review, for the Nintendo Switch. The game begins with the tale of Mina, a talented coo...[Read More]

Gran Turismo Sport Review

Four years ago, Gran Turismo 6 came out to mediocre success. Fans have been patiently waiting for the next in the series, and studio Polyphonic Digital has been hard at work to bring the franchise more in line with modern racing games. Although it suffered delays, the titular PlayStation racing franchise is back with updated graphics and new ideas for the PlayStation 4. This is our review of Gran ...[Read More]

Our Hyakki Castle Review – A Feudal Effort

2012 saw the mighty Legend of Grimrock trap wave after wave of unprepared players in a torturous battle for survival. Almost Human’s indie hit tossed willing victims into a maze of traps that updated the classic Dungeon Master concept. Now, Asakusa Studios is ready to drag us all the way back to a Japan full of Shogun and samurai, with an interesting take on the classic dungeon crawler. Like Legen...[Read More]

Simulacra Review – Nothing Is What It Seems

SIMULACRA at its heart is a well layered puzzle game that unravels the story of a mysterious disappearance, but as you’ll see often repeated in the game, nothing is as it seems. Beyond the obvious problem challenges and character dialog lies a short story science fiction horror narrative that subtly works its way out from beneath the surface to take over the entire game. This is our Simulacra revi...[Read More]

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Review

A lot of people rolled their eyes when it was announced Skyrim would be coming to the Nintendo Switch – how many times has this game been released, again? Promising an authentic Skyrim experience with a few added features, Skyrim for the Switch, to me, maybe the best platform yet to vanquish foes, slay dragons, and once more earn the title of Dragonborn.  This is our Skyrim Switch review. Th...[Read More]

Not only do you have to worry about peo...[Read More]

Hand of Fate 2 Review

Hand of Fate 2 comes out at a tough time. There are just too many great games releasing, and an Indie Studio may have trouble getting visibility right now. That said, if you’re in the mood for an interesting and addicting Action RPG, you will want to give Hand of Fate 2 a look. It’s out now on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. This is our Hand of Fate 2 review.
