Super Hot Game Review – It’s Super and It’s Hot

The Super Hot game was just released for PC, Mac and Linux on the 25th of February 2016. The Xbox One version will be coming sometime this March. There's no PlayStation 4 version. With that out of the way, we can talk about this unique first person shooter. I never thought I'd say this but in this FPS, standing still is way more important than running around and flanking enemies. Why? Because when you don't move time is slowed down to snail-like … [Read more...]

Street Fighter V Review – An Unfinished Game

Street Fighter V has been released on the 16th of February 2016. However, calling this title a full game would be lying. Capcom and Sony were forced - by themselves, mind you; to release Street Fighter V in February because they put too much money in e-sports. Missing the February tournament would have meant a lot of contractual obligations not met, and the competition put on hold. … [Read more...]

Far Cry Primal Review – More of the Same Old Good Stuff

Far Cry Primal is set in the Stone Age, shifting the medium from fast vehicles, radio communications and high-end weapons to clubs, bows, and taming animals. Hey, it's 10,000 BC, not only you'll not find any Wi-Fi signal, but maintaining any form of warmth and light means all kinds of peril. Takkar, who is the protagonist this time around, is relentlessly searching for members of his Wenja tribe, which got lost. They have been scattered all … [Read more...]

Unravel Game Review – Too Many Strings Attached

The Unravel game is one of the most quirkiest looking puzzle platformers we've ever laid our eyes upon. Unfortunately, it' just that, and while the game unfolds, you quickly realize how poorly knitted Unravel really is. Developed by Coldwood Studio, Unravel is Martin Sahlin's, the studio's creative director, somewhat personal project. When he took to the stage during E3 2015, with shaking hands grasping a woolly doll, he introduced the main … [Read more...]

Firewatch Review – A Burgeoning Friendship

Firewatch is Campo Santo's first game. A brand new studio based in San Francisco. While this may be Santo's first release, its members have worked on a few great titles that you might have played - The Cave, Brutal Legend, The Walking Dead: Season 1, BioShock 2 and Mark of the Ninja. … [Read more...]

XCOM 2 Review – A Brutal Sequel

Train your soldiers to fight for humanity's survival, because, this time around, the human rebellion is on the offensive, and no longer a resolute defender. XCOM 2 follows in the footsteps of the critically acclaimed XCOM: Enemy Unknown, which appeared in 2012. You are in control of the human Resistance, commanding soldiers to rise up against the alien terror that has been ruling Earth for the past 20 years - the Advent. There are numerous … [Read more...]

Enjoy the Bad Spooky Teen Drama in our Oxenfree Review

Oxenfree is a gorgeous game, with an absolutely stunning art-direction. It looks like its backgrounds, characters and objects are painted on a canvas and transposed to the digital medium. The score that accompanies the beautiful setting really sets the mood for a horror game, with well-chosen music and top-notch sound bites. I was so eager to play it and I even cancelled plans to hang out with friends, but, in the end, I wished I didn't. I … [Read more...]

Madness Reigns in Our Darkest Dungeon Review!

Darkest Dungeon is a rogue-like developed by Red Hook Studios, and it has escaped Early Access this week. We've been keeping an eye out for this game since we first heard about its Kickstarter campaign back in February of 2014. Darkest is your classic rogue-like where the player has to accept death with arms wide open, and continue to move forward, even though if that means walking on a road paved with the skeletal remains of your party … [Read more...]

That Dragon, Cancer Review – The Harrowing Reality of Cancer

Be warned: This review contains spoilers, because, otherwise, it would have been a shallow essay about one's highly-subjective opinion. To get down to it, That Dragon, Cancer is not really a good video-game. In many respects, you can pretty much compare it to an independent movie about the gruesome realities of cancer. It's a narrative-driven game, where the player needs to push one button to interact with objects and continue the story. But it … [Read more...]

Call of Duty Black Ops 3 Review – Specialists Galore

After about 3 months of continuous Call of Duty Black Ops 3 gaming sessions, it's about time we reviewed the latest title in the COD franchise. It caught us off-guard. We were expecting a shallow game aimed only to amass wealth, but we were, fortunately, mistaken. It's true that Treyarch set the bar pretty high with the first Black Ops iteration, introducing an engaging campaign, as well as intriguing characters, while, a year later, Black Ops … [Read more...]
