Film Review: The Strangers: Prey at Night

The 2008 Cult Horror film The Strangers was flawed. The titular “characters” (if I dare use such a word) were unstoppable forces of chaos and destruction. They were menacing, and haunting, and, most importantly, scary. Yes, they teleported. They were precogs with an uncanny ability for hunting down Liv Tyler and Scott Speedman. The Strangers were on the level of […]

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 […]

We Happy Few by Compulsion Games made quite the impression on me at E3 2016. I hadn’t even thought about it going in to the convention but it quickly worked it’s into one of my games of the show. It exuded a fascinating style, particularly reminiscent of the works of George Orwell. After seeing the game at E3 I hadn’t […]

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 […]

The Creeps: Resident Evil VII

I’ve had a rather tumultuous history with the Resident Evil franchise. They’ve always been competent and interesting shooters with ridiculous stories and, most detrimental to me, cheap scares that border on non-existent on the spooky-o-meter. Resident Evil was also a series that lost it’s footing along the way. Does it want to be a lumbering, tank control game or a fast paced […]
