Samurai Jack: The Fifth Season Review

by Peter Paltridgeon May 25, 2017
Samurai Jack has finished his journey. One of the top-drawer quality cartoons of the 2000’s was given its long-overdue wrap-up as of last Sunday, thanks to an opening in creator Genndy Tartakovsky’s schedule and the willingness of Adult Swim to spend the money. Minus a brief break on April Fool’s Day, ten new episodes of […]

The Sexy Brutale (Xbox One) Review

by Nathan Gibsonon May 10, 2017
The premise of The Sexy Brutale isn’t exactly clear from the name. It even takes a little bit of time for the game to explain exactly what it going on and what you will be doing. It turns out that the host of a mansion masquerade ball is missing and the staff are brutally murdering […]

Crawl (Xbox One) Review

by Nathan Gibsonon April 30, 2017
Like many other indie games that have come out in the past few years, Crawl looks very much like a retro game thanks to its low-resolution pixelated look. While this is a common enough design choice to evoke a feeling of nostalgia, the developers behind this game have seemed to choose it to fit in […]

Late Shift (Xbox One) Review

by Nathan Gibsonon April 29, 2017
Full motion video (FMV) games have never had a particularly good history. While they were somewhat popular during the early 90s, they never established themselves as a genre that had staying power or a mark of quality. They have begun to make something of a resurgence recently thanks to new technology allowing high quality footage […]

Walking Dead: A New Frontier Episode 4 Review

by Todd Blackon April 25, 2017
Walking Dead  A New Frontier Episode 4 Review There’s a point in this episode where Clementine asks Javi about why she’s “bleeding”. As in not from a wound sustained in battle, but naturally bleeding. This kind of awkward conversation is what you can expect from Walking Dead  A New Frontier Episode 4. No, seriously, there’s […]

Review: Regalia: Of Men & Monarchs

by Authoron April 17, 2017
Regalia: Of Men and Monarchs is Polish studio Pixelated Milk’s homage to classic Japanese RPGs. Judging by its massive success on Kickstarter, there’s definitely a demand for that. But will Regalia have anything to offer to players outside their target audience? Judging by the beta, the answer is a resounding yes. The game makes no […]

Mass Effect Andromeda (Xbox One) Review

by Nathan Gibsonon April 13, 2017
Taking place not long after the events of the first Mass Effect game, Andromeda sees the player taking on the role one of two Ryder twins as part of the Initiative. This new mission is a plan to leave the Milky Way galaxy and colonize a new collection of planets in the Andromeda galaxy. It’s […]

Walking Dead The New Frontier Above The Law Review

by Todd Blackon April 3, 2017
It may seem hard to believe, but it’s been over three months since we reviewed Walking Dead Season 03: The New Frontier. That’s quite a gap, and while it’s true that TellTale Games did release the first two episodes at once, to have to wait so long for the third episode didn’t help things, as […]

Forma.8 (Xbox One) Review

by Nathan Gibsonon March 30, 2017
Forma.8 is a metroidvania that has been in development by MixedBag for the last few years. The first glimpse we got of the game two years ago suggested this could be an intriguing title and with its release, it is time to see if the two-man outfit from Turin, Italy have managed to deliver the […]

Chime Sharp (Xbox One) Review

by Nathan Gibsonon March 29, 2017
Chime Sharp is the successor to the 2010 puzzle game Chime, which released on the Xbox 360 as well as a number of other platforms. It follows the same basic rules and has a similar appearance but has been expanded and upgraded in several key areas. With the multitude of puzzlers available across the Xbox […]

Early Access Review: Bad Pad

by Authoron March 25, 2017
Before I dip my toes into an unknown world, I like to have a general idea of what I’m up against. As I skimmed through the brief synopsis of Bad Pad on Steam, the words “a little frustrating at times” caught my attention. Now, I have experienced a lot of challenging video games throughout the […]

Kill the Bad Guy (Xbox One) Review

by Nathan Gibsonon March 17, 2017
Modern day games tend to avoid being overly blunt wherever possible, with titles that do little to let you know what they are actually about. Kill the Bad Guy does not suffer from that problem. It tells you from the get go exactly what the game is and what you will be doing in it. […]
