Noita

I have died about a hundred times over the last week. I have been blown up, shot, drowned, burned, frozen, and taken more than one acid bath. I have been crushed by falling debris, electrocuted, and had my own wand backfire and spread my guts across the wall like a Pollock painting. Noita is a…

Sin Slayers

There are few combinations of words that whet my appetite more than grimdark roguelike RPG. Sin Slayers, developed by Goonswarm, claims to be such a game so I decided to take it for a run and see if the title is as advertised. The game reminds me a lot of Darkest Dungeon, but has enough…

Vermintide 2 – Winds of Magic

I have a deep and pure love of blunt weapons. Some people are sword people. Some people love guns. Nothing gets me going quite like smashing something in the face with a warhammer, mace, or flail… virtually, of course. Rats make good targets, as do chaos infused humans, but cracking the skulls of walking goats is…

Streets of Rogue

Killing someone by throwing an oven at them is an experience unique to Streets of Rogue; the resulting house fire, the brawl with the fire department after they arrive, and the shootout with the cops that follows is why I love this game. It would be easy to look at Streets of Rogue, developed by…

Set in the 1920s, you play as the Navy veteran and private investigator Charles Reed who freshly arrives on an old barge to the fictional town of Oakmont.…

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

From Software is no stranger to what fans of their Dark Souls series are hungry for, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice serves up a familiar dish with new spices to keep things interesting. I’ve been an admirer of this developer since way back on the PlayStation One. King’s Field and Armored Core brought me into…

Grave Danger

Welcome to the graveyard! Grave Danger is a platformer developed by Joindots and is available on the PS4 for approximately $19.49 CND. Gamers join the spooky adventure with three mysterious outlaws: Dante, Malice, and Elliot. Your mission is to clear your names, as each outlaw is wanted dead or alive by the sinister villain named…

Ghoulboy

Developed by a small team of three at Serkan Bakar games, GhoulBoy is a retro-inspired action hack and slash game. It is so diligently attuned to the era it emulates that it sometimes brings both the classic charm and imperfections painstakingly into present day. This review is based on the PS4 version which released March…
