Chronos: Before the Ashes

I don’t think I’ve ever said “man this VR game is great. They should make a non-VR version of this.” To be fair, I don’t think I’ve ever said “man this VR game is great….” Had I the opportunity to play Chronos in 2016, perhaps I would have though. Before the Ashes is the VR…

Elex 2

Back in 2017, I played the original Elex. Within the first couple of hours, I was exhausted at the learning curve and the difficult combat scenarios the game threw at me left me confused and aggravated. “Who is this game even for?” I would keep asking myself over and over until I just couldn’t handle…

Biomutant

Announced in August of 2017, Biomutant was originally set to release by the end of the following year. Due to a small team size of 20 core developers and perhaps a little too much ambition, the game finally released May 25thof 2021. Boasting an open world with kung-fu combat and choices that affect your alignment,…

Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning

For everyone who saw the potential of the original Amalur release, its vast maps to explore, countless fully voiced quests, days worth of play time and versatile class and combat systems, this game is just as good as it was on the ps3. For everyone disappointed by the shoddy camera work, poor targeting, stunlock based…

Fade to Silence

Fade to Silence is a survival-RPG developed by Black Forest Games. It immerses gamers into a post-apocalyptic frozen tundra where resources are scarce, and horror awaits. The journey begins with Ash: The Leader. You can consider Ash to be somewhat of a Rick Grimes from AMC’s hit show “The Walking Dead.” It’s simple, the camp…

Battle Chasers: Nightwar

Those gamers looking for a traditional turn based RPG are left with fewer and fewer options as the biggest names of the genre shift towards more action oriented combat styles. As a result, the indie, digital and budget release markets must be more heavily relied on in order to find that fix. This is where…

Titan Quest

Titan Quest is a re-release for modern day consoles of a PC title that originally came out in 2006 and its first expansion pack The Immortal Throne from the following year in one package. There aren’t a lot of companies that would attempt to revive a game 12 years later but with THQ Nordic purchasing…

Rad Rodgers

Rad Rodgers is advertised as a combination of sorts to adult humor games like Conker’s Bad Fur Day and the old 2D shareware games of the past such as Commander Keen and Jazz the Jackrabbit. I fondly remember playing those old PC games when I was a kid and thinking that they were a lot…

SpellForce 3

Spellforce 3 is an RTS-RPG hybrid developed by Grimlore Games and published by THQ Nordic. I do not have any experience with the previous games of the series, so this review is coming from the perspective of a total newcomer to the series. I have played RTS-RPG hybrids, but none with quite the depth of…
