Hex 2

Sequels can be difficult. You have to change enough to keep things interesting but remain careful to not going so far as to alienate your fan base. It’s a fine balance that needs to be struck for a sequel to be sucessful. Puzzle games have an added difficulty in what to change and not to…

Songbringer

Many games in the past can be considered Zelda clones or have paid homage to illustrious series in some way or another. Perhaps you played Golden Axe Warrior back in the day, or maybe more recently 3D Dot Game Heroes, Darksiders, or Okami. You can see the influence Zelda has provided to these games and…

The Adventure Pals

2d platformers have always had their share of weird. Remind me why I’m jumping on these flying turtles and chestnuts with feet again? Wait, I’m supposed to fling this piece of meat through all those grinders? Massive Monster’s The Adventure Pals is no different from its predecessors in this respect. As a kooky platformer that…

RiME

We’re seen a great variety in new age puzzle games. The Witness, The Last Guardian, Limbo are just a few of the examples of engaging titles we’ve seen in the past number of years. Rime by Tequila Works is no different, a game that draws you in and tugs on your heart strings. The story…

Hex

Indie puzzler Hex is both developed and published by Studio Goya, a small one man operation. The goal of the game is to clear all the tiles off the map (with a few exceptions) by moving from one hex to another. This may seem simple enough but as you progress the game really ramps up…

Raid: World War II

Raid: World War II was developed by Lion Game Lion and published by Starbreeze Studios and 505 Games. In case you didn’t know (like me before reviewing this) these were the guys who worked on DLC for Payday 2 and you can definitely see where they drew inspiration. When I first heard about Raid the…

Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age

Remasters can only really be judged on two criteria; was the original good and what improvements have been made. If the original game was bad then no one would be interested. If little to no improvements were made then it might not be worth the money. Luckily for Squaresoft aside from a few spin-offs the…

Nex Machina

With the release of the PS4 the options for games was minimal to say the least. That being said Playstation + members were given a nice treat with a couple freebies one of which was Resogun. Even having enjoyed Super Stardust HD on the PS3 I didn’t put two and two together that Resogun was…

Firewatch

Deep in the woods surrounded by trees, lakes, and wildlife you stand at your tower watching for signs of wildfire. What should have been a peaceful few months is interrupted when a dark figure is seen in the distance one night. You call out hoping it’s just a camper but receive nothing in return. This…
