Elex

Game reviewed on the PS4 with a copy provided by THQ Nordic. Developer Piranha Bytes has made a history of creating games that were considered above all else as polarizing. While the Gothic and Risen franchises were not able to find large scale success due to their buggy or lacking nature, it did not stop…

Sunset Overdrive

For almost two decades, developer Insomniac Games had made games only for the Sony brand. With the release of Sunset Overdrive the company has created only their second game to grace a Microsoft console and the very first Xbox exclusive in their library.  Over the years they have acquired experience with crazy weapons, endearing storytelling…

Orange Moon

Orange Moon is a 2D action side-scroller from developer Betelgeuse Zero and published by Meridian4. It uses a simple graphic style that relies on high contrast black and orange imagery and animations that would look more at home in early 2000s flash game. The music and sound are there to try and give the game…

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…

Vive Le Roi

Vive Le Roi is an indie stealth puzzle game developed by Sylvain Seccia and published by Meridian4. A phone game with a PC release, Vive Le Roi relies on art style more than graphical power to get across the game’s simple but solid mechanics. The sound does its job but the music is repetitive and…

Phantom Trigger

Phantom Trigger is described as a hardcore neon slasher which is really accurate. Created by Bread Team, a team comprised of two people, and I have to say they did one hell of a job with this game. Phantom Trigger is about Stan, a man who has just found out he is dying. Phantom Trigger…

Citadale – The Legends Trilogy

Castlevania is a series with some hits and misses that is none the less a household name. While today entries can be found across many platforms, it planted its roots on a Nintendo console. As the decades passed, there came many imitators with Citadale – The Legends Trilogy now hoping to achieve success with a…

A Robot Named Fight

When I first read about the concept for A Robot Named Fight I was hesitant to say the least. It is necessary to be objective when reviewing games but the thought of a Metroidvania style game that was procedurally generated and roguelike just struck me as something I would hate. Much of my success in…

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…
