The Walking Dead: The Ties That Bind Review

Beginning with Season 1 of the Walking Dead back in 2012, developer TellTale proved themselves to be expertly capable of creating rich, carefully crafted stories using well established IPs. Since then TellTale has tackled everything from Minecraft to Game of Thrones and has quite obviously left their mark on the modern day adventure game, a veritable roller coaster with the […]

Orwell Review

Modern society is a tricky little beast isn’t it? Security, liberty, and freedom, three pillars of governance that seem to be in a constant state of tumultuous war with one another. But this raises an interesting question: which do we value more? I’d argue that that depends on the time of day that you ask us. Enter Orwell, the first […]

Shadow Warrior 2 Review

The first-person shooter renaissance that we have been living through for the past year has provided the industry with some of the best FPS games in recent memory. As someone who not only loves the FPS genre, but FPS games from the nineties, I believe that it’s fair to say that we live in some truly beautiful times. The release […]

Event[0] Review

The walking simulator (as it has been so humorously deemed) has achieved an unprecedented level of success over the last few years. A large chunk of the genre’s prominence and significance has been helped, in large part, by games such as Gone Home, Dear Esther, and The Stanley Parable. Yet, while these games are wildly successful and revered, they have […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Furi Review

Furi is an ultra intense bullet hell/third-person brawler mix from developer The Game Bakers. It’s a traditional boss rush game with unconventional mechanics and superbly responsive controls that, when working in unison, forms a beautiful bond. The game took a bit of time for me to get into it but once it hit me, it really hit me. While the story […]

Age of Barbarians Extended Cut Review

Age of Barbarian by Crian Soft is a hack-and-slash side scrolling adventure game inspired by the 80s Sword-and-Sorcery genre. It’s fun and ridiculous although it does have some issues here and there. I can’t deny that the game does what it sets out to do. It’s campy, cheesy, and fully absurd. They probably didn’t mean for it but there was […]

Ghostbusters (2016) Review

Well, it was bound to happen. The new Ghostbusters film has been released which means that the question on everybody’s mind is: “Is it the awful dumpster abortion that I knew it would be?” No, not really. “So, wait. Is it good?” Don’t get ahead of yourself. No, it’s not good but it’s not awful either. It’s a middling movie […]

Inside Review

  Playdead’s Inside is a game that left a deep emotional imprint on me. It left me confused yet satisfied. The harrowing tale of The Boy through an Orwellian wet dream is one of the best stories to have graced the Video Game scene in years. You here the argument that Video Games have bad stories but Inside single-handedly shattered […]

Kholat Review

Kholat is… complicated. I won’t say that it’s absolutely deplorable but it is undoubtedly complicated to explain. It left me with a lasagna of emotions ranging from absolute mess to strangely enjoyable. The open-world horror game from developer IMGN.PRO (released in 2015) follows the real-life story of 9 students traveling the Kholat mountain in the Russian wilderness. The fact that this […]

Breached Review

Breached, the first game from developer Drama Drifters, is a harrowing tale of survival and isolation. This game taps on that instinct that is required to survive and the loneliness and isolation that accompanies it, all while the threat of impending doom lurks in the back of your mind. This takes the survival genre in a whole new, exciting direction; […]

The Technomancer Review

Yikes! I’m unaware of a more simplistic way to summarize this game. By god, it’s rough. It’s difficult for me to write this because I’m always hoping that a Spiders game succeeds. They create such fascinating worlds that I just want to get lost in but along the way they forget that they needed to make a playable game to […]
