  • Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 Xbox One Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on May 10, 2017 under Xbox, Featured, Xbox One Reviews
    I was sitting here, doing some work when a new game was offered to me to try. Now, the guys at AAG know I’m a sucker for two things, sniping games and open world games. Combine those two things and surely, surely, I’ll be in heaven, right? Well, mostly. Some games can do it beautifully, hell, Far Cry 3 wasn’t a sniper simulator, yet it managed to turn itself into a joyous example of arcade s... more.
  • Troll and I PlayStation 4 Review

    Trollolololololol… that’s what I expected to hear after playing this game for an hour. I had seen this sitting on the shelves of my local EB, then on PSN, I figured I was in for an interesting, surprising game. Boy was I unfortunately right in ways I was not hoping for. Troll and I comes, with minimal effort from the people at Maximum Games, with a pricing point of $90 AUS, which I can only s... more.
  • PlaneScape Torment PC Review

    It’s been such a long time since I played Planescape: Torment, I forgot what a glorious experience it was. I don’t think it’d be right to review the actual game itself for this review, after all, that game was made way back in 1999, and Beamdog isn’t so much remaking the game as much as giving it a well needed spitshine to bring it into the modern era. So let’s take a look at how that ef... more.
  • TurretCraft

    åYou know that feeling you have, when you really want to like a game, but you just cannot bring yourself to because there’s far too much wrong with it? That’s me with TurretCraft, the new game from developer Antropi. I want to like this game, I do. But competitive Tower Defence games are nothing new, I’ve been playing them since the days of Warcraft 3 and to be honest, I’ve been playing m... more.
  • Snake Pass Xbox One Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on April 3, 2017 under Featured, Xbox One Reviews
    As a kid, on the NES, Snake Rattle’N’Roll was one of my favourite games, I dug the hell out of it. Playing it with my mate, 2 player, was a blast. Snake Pass, at this point, is scratching that itch for me and then some. Gameplay I’ve never ever played a Snake simulator? But if someone ever makes one? This is the game they want to look towards to figure out how the hell to do it. The cont... more.
  • The Exiled

    Imitation is said to be the sincerest form of flattery, after all, when you’re trying to be Diablo, why not copy Diablos best aspects? Well, that would be great if Diablo’s best aspects were what you were copying. Unfortunately for The Exiled, it merely copies some of Diablo’s worst imitators. From terrible net code, to uninspired combat, to bland, boring graphics, The Exiled is an exercise ... more.
  • Dungeon Souls

    Blackshell Games is branching out, now they bring us a new game from Lamina Studios called Dungeon Souls, a roguelike experience involving a warrior plundering the depths of a dungeon in search of treasure and eventually death in hope of… are we at the stage World War 2 simulators reached a decade ago yet? Are we over-inundated with roguelike experiences that they’ll honestly go for a while an... more.
  • Streets of Rogue

    0 CommentsPosted by on March 29, 2017 under Featured, PC Review
    Streets of Rogue comes to us from developer Matt Dabrowski, via publisher tinyBuild. A seemingly simple, overhead 16-bit beat-em-up, I won’t lie, my first impression was ‘Oh god not another pixelart game’. That was, until I got into playing, then the chaos reigned. Streets of Rogue is *fun*. Definitely fun, it’s got a tongue in cheek sense of humour, a wicked sense of over the top chaos ab... more.
  • Void Expanse with Pariah’s Bane

    I’m going to preface this review by saying I love these kinds of games, and my addiction to these kinds of top down space exploration games goes right back to 1992 when I first played Epic Megagames SOLAR WINDS, a fantastic game that stoked my imagination about these sorts of games. Imagine years later when I picked up a copy of Wing Commander Privateer and the whole genre came to life again in ... more.
  • Ghost Recon Wildlands

    What a polarising game. What a truly polarising game. I’m in two absolute minds about Ghost Recon Wildlands and trust me, it’s going to show through this review. When first loading up the game, I was taken aback by how primitive the game quite frankly looked. While I consider myself a Ghost Recon purist, loving only the PC original and Island Thunder, I found myself thoroughly disappointed ... more.

  • Burley Men At Sea

    0 CommentsPosted by on February 26, 2017 under Featured, PC Review
    A game does not always have to have immediate threat to present challenge and interest, the imminent looming demon of defeat careening down upon you with a ‘game over’ screen does not always need to be present to inspire one to progress further for entertainment. Burly Men at Sea, henceforth known as BMAS, is at once an interesting folk tale and simplified adventure game that works pleasantly ... more.

    I’m going to level with you, I had zero idea what to expect with this game other than the idea it involved mustaches somehow. I mean, when I started it up, I had to giggle a bit at it, the idea a twin stick 2d side scrolling shooter would rely on that old macho stereotype of the manly man’s mustache providing the main characters special powers really tickled my funny bone. The fact you can get... more.
  • Rotation Phonology: Break

    0 CommentsPosted by on February 21, 2017 under PC Review
    Sometimes I get a game that baffles me. I know I want to like it? I know it’s not really terrible, but the concept escapes me, the controls just feel uninspired and the game itself just feels like it’s been slapped together with good intent but poor execution. I think honestly that describes Rotation Phonology: Break (Henceforth known as RPB) to a tee, “Good intent but poor execution” hone... more.
  • Overture Video

    Our man Steve reviews Overture for the pc. From Black Shell Games, Overture is a top down, Gauntlet inspired dungeon crawler that will test your mettle, asking you to endure death after death after death in order to become the best adventurer around! Do you have what it takes? 24 characters, mutliple advancements, weapons, multiple enemies and one hell of a challenging game add up to a great time ... more.
