Omensight

I have only ever gone to one murder mystery night in my life and it was Disney themed. Yes, you read that right. We dressed up as famous Disney cartoon characters and there was indeed a murder. I have always been fascinated with this type of idea and placing it inside of a video game…

The Final Station

Originally released in 2016, Final Station is a side scrolling 2D shooter with survival-horror elements that now finds itself on the Nintendo Switch. At first glance this combination seems like it lacks direction, however, the game is structured in a way where is creates its dark sense of mystery in a compelling way.

Atomik – RunGunJumpGun

  When I first sat down to play Atomik: RunGunJumpGun I was immediately drawn in by its art style which reminded me of an old NES game with a modern twist, a familiar nostalgia trip despite never really playing a title quite like it.

Let me be the first to tell you that this zombie craze is not about to go away. Left 4 Dead may have started the zombie video game craze but nobody…

Top 5 Skylanders

There are a lot of Skylanders. In 2011 the original game came out with 32 characters (36 if you count recolours) and the number has only grown from there. Now there is somewhere around 200 figures and the cool often quirky character design probably has a lot to do with the series still going strong…
