Graveyard Keeper

To be honest, when I first saw Graveyard Keeper announced, my reaction was one with a shrug and a dismissive tone. I had most recently played Stardew Valley and I believed that Graveyard Keeper was just trying to ride the successful pixel art train at the moment. I let it fall into my backlog of…

Wonder Blade

The fact that Wonder Blade was a game originally released in 2018 on ios and was developed by only a single person is quite impressive. A couple years have passed since then and it is primed to make the leap to home consoles, however with that jump also comes a big leap in expectations. Starting…

Solasta: Crown of the Magister

Solasta: Crown of the Magister is a fairly average game with a few neat ideas that either make or break the game depending on your perspective. Being fifth edition Dungeons and Dragons, it feels about as simplistic and basic as one would expect, but does a good job of thematically capturing the feeling of tabletop…

The Heroic Legend of Eagarlnia

At $14.49 Canadian, and with no microtransactions, the Heroic Legend of Eagarlnia is an amazing price for a decent mobile like game on steam.

Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning

For everyone disappointed by the shoddy camera work, poor targeting, stunlock based…

Published by QubicGames and developed by Dreadlocks, Dex was originally released on the…

Hellpoint

I’m sure there will come a point where the market is so saturated with soulslikes that they start to feel like the new ‘everything must have zombies’ fad, but we’re still in the larval state since perhaps wisely people waited for From to decide to finish Dark Souls before they all threw their hats in.…

Mortal Shell

Smart level design, beautiful scenery, tight gameplay mechanics and a consistent challenge make Mortal Shell the most polished Soulslike I have yet played. The game knows what it wants to be, and by all indications they accomplished it perfectly. While there are design decisions I do not enjoy, their intended execution is as close to…

Skater XL

Skater XL is one of the many new contenders aiming to revitalize the skating genre to its former glory. Is it able to pull off the victory or does it fail harder than my bails in the video footage? Skater XL is a simulation skateboarding game focused on the more realistic aspects of the hobby…
