Superbeat: Xonic (Xbox One) Review

by Nathan Gibsonon June 30, 2017
Superbeat: Xonic is a music rhythm game with a difference. Developed by a group of designers who have previously worked at Pentavision on the DJMax franchise, it focuses on a rather distinctive circular based system for hitting notes in time with the music. While this helps it stand out from the likes of Rock band […]

ARMS Review

by Todd Blackon June 29, 2017
I’ll be the first to admit that when I first saw ARMS at the Nintendo Switch reveal event I was decidedly…unimpressed. Don’t get me wrong, it FELT like a Nintendo title, but I didn’t feel like it’d be something that would win me over. Now, as time went on, Nintendo did the brilliant thing of […]

Perception (Xbox One) Review

by Nathan Gibsonon June 25, 2017
Perception, a survival horror game from The Deep End Games, a development studio made up of several people who had worked on the BioShock series at Irrational Games. It puts players into the role of Cassie, a blind woman who has to use echolocation to explore and mansion and discover the secrets hidden within it. […]

Thea: The Awakening (Xbox One) Review

by Nathan Gibsonon June 22, 2017
It is somewhat difficult to review Thea: the Awakening for the simple reason that it is unlike almost any other game. It combines elements of an RPG, 4X strategy game, base management simulator, and card battler together to create an experience that is certainly different from most other games you are likely to have played […]

Walking Dead: The New Frontier: From The Gallows Review

by Todd Blackon May 31, 2017
Despite this being my first TellTale Walking Dead season, I knew a lot of what to expect going in. And to be fair, The New Frontier did a great job welcoming me in as a new player, as it focused not just on series regular Clementine, but a new family of survivors. Throughout this season […]

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 […]

Seasons After Fall (Xbox One) Review

by Nathan Gibsonon May 25, 2017
Out of all of the genres available in the gaming industry, the 2D sidescrolling platformer has seen the biggest boost from the advent of indie developers. What was once a dying art form has become the go-to field for small studios looking to make their mark in the world. In that respect, Seasons After Fall […]

Planetbase (Xbox One) Review

by Nathan Gibsonon May 12, 2017
Despite the ever increasing library of ID@Xbox titles that are making their way to Xbox one, there is still one genre that is somewhat underrepresented. Planetbase is set to change that, with the strategy simulation game giving players the chance to set up their very own space colony. The game originally released on PC back […]

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 […]
