Tangledeep

I am going to dive right into it and reveal the biggest reason that Tangledeep was just not for me, which could coincidentally be the most appealing for others, the difficulty. To clarify, I am not referring to those instances of the random generator creating an unlucky situation that leads to a death, which did…

Ori and the Blind Forest

Ori and the Blind Forest is a magnificent game. This review will not be about discovering if the title made a good first impression but rather examining how they have now made a lasting impression. Other would-be game designers should look at what developer Moon Studios was able to accomplish with their debut title and…

Redeemer

Redeemer is a top-down punch-and-shoot from Sobaka Studio and Gambitious Digital Entertainment. With rudimentary stealth options, a variety of weapons, and fast paced combat, Redeemer feels much like Hotline Miami without the one-shot kills. There’s a lot to like here but also a few hang-ups that could be addressed in future patches. The game follows…

Ryse: Son of Rome

Many groups of people have someone that can be viewed as the lovable oaf. While their flaws are undeniable, they are kept around because their intensions are good and they try their best. Ryse comes off as that lovable oaf for the gaming community. Not perfect but fun. After a brief tutorial, the story is…

Midboss

You are a lowly minion among the hordes that infest a dungeon. Tired of being so low on the totem pole you and your friend decide to make a move when your dungeon is attacked by heroes and everyone else is distracted. At least that is what you do in the game Midboss by Kitsune…

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…

Karma. Incarnation 1

Karma. Incarnation 1 is a game I want to enjoy. It has beautiful, high-contrast art, a mesmerizing and original soundtrack, and an interesting take on non-verbal storytelling. I just don’t think it’s a very good game. Coming from Auralab and Otherkind Games, Karma feels like an experiment that will delight some but bore others. The…

Quantum Break

There is no denying that Quantum Break is a fun game, even if it is a flawed one. Prior to its release there was so much talk about how it would innovate with a new form of media entertainment by fusing action gameplay with a high quality cinematic experience. It’s unfortunate then to report that…

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…
