Nine Parchments Review – Casting a Spell

Nine Parchments is a action co-op RPG and like any title that has a focus on co-op you  should really be playing with other people. The player can choose between a total of 8 characters who are tasked with the duty of traveling the world on a journey to find nine parchments (hence the title) […]

serial cleaner review
Serial Cleaner Review – Hide the Body

Many games see you taking the role of a member of a crime gang or a brooding vigilante to wipe up the city streets. I thought that I’d seen it all in this light, but Serial Cleaner proved me wrong. There are still plenty of other variations on the “violence and killing” theme that have yet to […]

the end is nigh review
The End is Nigh Review – Earth is Doomed

The End is Nigh is the latest platformer from Nicalis and Edmund McMillen. The other works credited to their names are Super Meat Boy and The Binding of Isaac. Those games were both creepy, unsettling, difficult, and tons of fun all the way through. They helped to define what the indie genre could be and, for the most part, The […]

L.A. Noire Review – A Different Kind of War

Let me bring you to the land of 1947 Los Angeles where the American Dream is flourishing, and anything seems possible. Yet, with the beautiful flowers of prosperity comes the rotten, rancid roots on which it is based. After six years, L.A. Noire is still one of the most engaging and different games of the […]

worms wmd review
Worms W.M.D. Review – Ready, Aim, Fire!

The Worms series has always been one of the high points for developer Team 17. The simple premise of getting an army of overly British worms to use insane weapons to try and beat each other in a drastic game war is fun enough. While they’re not a massive franchise in the gaming industry, it’s familiar enough […]

champions ballad dlc review
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – The Champion’s Ballad DLC Review

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is my favorite game of 2017, and at 215 hours including The Champion’s Ballad DLC, it’s easily my most played game on Nintendo Switch. For me, Breath of the Wild ranks somewhere above Twilight Princess  and The Wind Waker but below Majora’s Mask and Ocarina of Time. Link’s latest outing has some of […]

rime review
RiME Review – Miyazaki Come to Life

RiME‘s soundtrack slowly builds from a faint ambiance to an emotionally-gripping conclusion as you solve the game’s various puzzles; it perfectly matches the sensation of being stuck on a puzzle and then suddenly realizing the solution. The score is one of the best I’ve heard in 2017, and really sets the atmosphere for what is a […]

OPUS: The Day We Found Earth Review – Life Among the Stars

In game creation, it’s interesting to see developers’ visions come to life. No two games are alike; with all sorts of quirks and design choices separating them. Some games prioritize a central mechanic, others focus on online play. OPUS: The Day We Found Earth solely prioritizes its story. There’s something innately magnetic about OPUS. Even if you read the […]

star ghost review
Star Ghost Review – The Depths of Space

Star Ghost is a title set in space that features you piloting your spaceship as you navigate the stars and shoot down any naughty aliens named “Metagons” who are making war with you, the good guy. Being in space is where the Star component of the title came from, I must admit I am not […]

crimsonland review
Crimsonland Review – I Can’t Believe It’s Not Doom

Developer 10tons has been one of the biggest Nintendo Switch supporters, especially in the top-down shooter department. Between Neon Chrome, JYDGE, and Time Recoil, they’ve essentially cornered that section of the market for themselves. Recently, they released their newest 2D shooter on the Nintendo Switch – Crimsonland. Unlike the games that came before it, this title is focused on carnage […]

superbeat xonic ex review
SUPERBEAT: XONiC EX Review – Get Rhythm

SUPERBEAT: XONiC is a rhythm game. A genre that saw a massive boom from the release of the rock juggernaut Guitar Hero that saw imitators try to get in on the act. Rock Band made their attempt at the rhythm throne by adding in an entire bloody band, but eventually the market was totally saturated […]

stick it to the man review
Stick It to the Man Review – An Adult Sticker Book

Stick It to the Man is one of the most gross looking games I have ever played, and I love it for that. Ray, the protagonist and professional hard hat tester, is walking home from work one night when a container holding a mysterious creature strikes him on the head. From there he awakes to […]

resident evil revelations 2 review
Resident Evil Revelations 2 Review – Learning And Improving

I have been a fan of Resident Evil for a very long time. From the sense of desperation in its hardcore survival gameplay aspects to a story that has always been simple, Resident Evil has been right up my alley; however, with recent entries such as Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6, the series […]

resident evil revelations review
Resident Evil Revelations Review – All Bark, No Bite

Capcom is one of the few third-party developers who hasn’t doubled down on the Switch. They’re unsure of Nintendo’s new console due to their experience with the Wii U (which is a fair concern), but after everyone else and their grandmother started bringing great games to the system, Capcom is still lagging behind. As of […]

batman the telltale series review
Batman – The Telltale Series Review – Be the Bat

Batman – The Telltale Series is a Batman title completely different from the critically-acclaimed Arkham series that’s come before it; the best way to describe this iteration of the Dark Knight is that it’s an interactive television show. Telltale has consistently made some of the best story-driven games in the industry and that continues with Batman – The […]

rocket league review
Rocket League Review – Sensational Goal!

Rocket League has been around for a while, but for those not familiar with the title let me explain. It’s a pretty unique title and one that is fairly easy to explain. You play football (Or should I say soccer to accommodate a the Americans reading?) in cars with a rocket booster attached to them. […]

xenoraid review
Xenoraid Review – Galaga With Choices

I’m sure most of us remember playing Galaga when we were younger — it’s a great game that for many of us started our journey as gamers. I recently replayed the original Galaga and while it’s a blast, I couldn’t help but wish it had some modern features. When I heard 10tons was releasing Xenoraid, a […]

spellspire review
Spellspire Review – Wizardly Education

Nowadays with easy access to downloadable games, a large amount of game developers have tried to incorporate learning into their video games. 10tons wanted to bring this peculiar market to the Nintendo Switch with its latest port, Spellspire. How enjoyable is this educative video game on the Switch?

octodad dadliest catch review
Octodad: Dadliest Catch Review

Octodad: Dadliest Catch is game that definitely catches your attention when you notice its silly looking main character, an octopus pretending to be a man. This is the main idea from Young Horses’s game: How would it be if an octopus decided to live between humans and what kind of silly moments could it cause […]

sonic forces review
Sonic Forces Review – A Trio of Heroes

With the recent success of Sonic Mania many eyes now gaze at Sonic Forces as it tries to follow up to the nostalgia trip that had a lot of people happy and returns to the 3D style of Sonic games we are used to. Sonic Forces is a title that returns to the modern Sonic […]
