    Rime has been in production by developer Tequila Works and published by Grey Box for a long time now and fans will not be disappointed. Where most games are text heavy or require a prolonged exposure to Google to understand what is going on, Rime takes a step sideways allowing the visually stunning environment and effects to lay the groundwork for the player to dive into this unique setting simila... more.

  • Wonderboy: The Dragons Trap PlayStation 4 Review

    Wonderboy came with my Sega Master system which rotated around with Alex and Kidd and Sonic the Hedgehog. Between the mesmerising musical tones to the challenging levels it was something which I continued to play until the dreaded day I sold my gaming collection to fund an end of school trip (wish I kept the game). The reboot by Lizardcube and developed by DotEmu recreates the same nostalgia I had... more.

    Mass Effect: Andromeda has been 5 years in the making a product of the Mass Effect series most of us have grown to love. The series has evolved from the linear RPG elements and space exploration to building characters that are as diverse as space itself, Mass Effect 3 finished with a three coloured button choice which left fans enraged with Bioware essentially throwing those multitude of choices f... more.
  • Torment Tides of Numenera

    For fans of Planescape Torment back in 1999 the revisiting or as some call it the spiritual successor of Torment Tides of Numenera is a game which fans have cried out for but has taken an age to be made reality. Torment Tides of Numenera is an isometric RPG funded by fans through Kickstarter almost four years ago and as most Inxile campaigns go was well received by fans and funded accordingly. Tor... more.
  • Tales of Berseria

    When comparing Tales of Berseria with its predecessor Tales of Zestiria you will find some large differences between the two. While Tales of Zestiria had many twists and significant revelations within the 50 plus hours I found Tales of Berseria very much set in the same path of seeking revenge for the death of Laphi her brother. True to Japanese RPG fashion the main character Velvet starts with th... more.
  • Card Quest

    Card Quest is a dungeon crawling adventure game with unique card combat. Like most card games of its genre using the same old tactic will not work for all situations (so for me simply using all my cards to speed through each battle did fail early on). Developed by the indie publisher Winterspring games and published in 2017 by Black Shell Media Card Quest is a strategy card game yet keeps to its c... more.

    In honour of the latest crowd campaign on Fig for Pillars of Eternity – Deadfire I have gone back to where it all began to see after a year how Pillars of Eternity plays during a fresh play through of my Eothasian priest trying to right the wrongs of Waidwen's Legacy the name given to the appearance of the “Hollowborn” or children born without souls. Pillars of Eternity (PoE) is easily the ... more.

    I quite enjoy board games, so I was interested in reviewing this one as it sits well in my comfort zone, Minos Strategos is an interesting game for me, as it's an exercise in displaying just how sometimes, less truly is more. Gameplay Board games come in two varieties I find for video games in terms of controls. Ridiculously easy, or overtly stupidly complex. Thankfully, Minos Strategos falls ... more.

    Pixel Survivor was developed by Sachonski, Renamilanesi and Sith for Patagoniart Studio released back in May 2016. When playing Pixel Survivor, I have flashbacks to the original Settler games from back in the day, mixed in with the difficulty of Dark Souls (not sure how simply over expanding leads to my population being eaten by zombies but please continue reading). Pixel Survivor is a god managem... more.
  • Vindictive Drive PC Review

    Retro games are all the rage at the moment, made all the easier to create by great software such as RPG Maker VX Ace. That being said, getting into playing “Vindictive Drive” was both an interesting and frustrating experience where frustration came by in no short amount and interest waned quickly to the point of boredom due to bad game design, limited controls and frustrating design choices. ... more.

    “Age of Entitlement is over” Age of Decadence is an turn based Role Playing Game by an indie developer Iron Tower Studios that I stumbled across on Steam for a cheeky 10 dollars while on holidays. Let me warn you, unlike most games you will be unable to complete every possible play-through or ending with one character or playing style. Age of Decadence includes multiple endings, stat requirem... more.
