Brut@l Review

I recently realized that I’ve devoted quite a few articles towards the roguelite genre. It’s a testament towards my love for the particular sub-genre. Roguelites and Roguelikes are interesting since they’re so abundant in the marketplace that Steam is absolutely over saturated with twenty roguelike games a day. That’s why when a truly impressive roguelike game is released, it deserves […]

5 hours with: Titanfall 2

The Titanfall 2 tech test was released earlier this week and like many of you, I eagerly downloaded my copy and prepared for a revolutionary step forward for first-person shooters. Alright, I’m exaggerating the last part a bit but either way, I can’t deny that I had some pretty damn high expectations for Titanfall 2 going into this tech demo. Now, the […]

Headlander Review

Metroidvania’s are a subgenre of gaming that spawned after the wildly massive success of both the Metroid series and the Castlevania series. This particular genre has spawned hundreds of games and has gone on to influence many others. It’s safe to say that the gaming landscape, and more specifically, what we began to expect from games was forever changed with these […]

5 hours with: No Man’s Sky

Disclaimer: I spent more than 5 hours with No Man’s Sky. I’ve probably spent closer to 20 hours with the game but looking as 5 hours with is the name of the series now and not just my actual playtime I’d want to clarify.  Every few years a game is released that absolutely captivates its audience with the promise of […]

Batman [TellTale] Episode 1: Realm of Shadows Review

The modern era of TellTales point-and-click adventures, that began with The Walking Dead Season 1, have provided some of the most gripping narratives to have ever come to Video Games. They are expertly crafted, mature stories loaded with subtlety and nuisance. Whether they’re writing gritty dramas (The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, The Wolf Among Us) or hilarious comedies (Borderlands, Minecraft) […]

Suicide Squad Review

DC has consistently proven themselves to be some of the most inconsistent filmmakers next to the mighty Fox. It’s actually surprising how poorly understand their characters, and when they do understand them, they can not create a competent film around them. Sadly, this is the case for DC’s recent venture into the comic turned film fray. Suicide Squad had a lot […]

Pigsodus Preview

Pigs are incredible animals aren’t they? They give me bacon, sausages, ribs, and, according to the people over at Psilocybe Games, protection from menacing frog demons promising the absolute destruction of the world. I’d have to argue that the sausage and bacon are of a greater importance than the latter but to each their own. I recently sat down with the demo […]

Roguelands (Quickie)

Roguelikes are an interesting subgenre of gaming that have seen a recent surge in popularity. I have grown a significant fondness for roguelikes due to their inherent unfairness. The urge to constantly one up yourself is incredibly satisfying. Finding a new item on one run, killing a new boss in another. Each subsequent run holds a myriad of new items […]
