Review: TimeMelters

Time is an amazing and mysterious thing. Since probably before recorded history, we have perceived time in different ways, and in every creative medium from dreams to books to movies and also games, we have imagined being able to manipulate it to our advantage. Today, a game developer has taken the idea of doing exactly

Preview: Brews & Bastards

So, who’s up for a little co-op arcade action? You? Alright, just be sure to bring a drink to wash it down with! Coming at us from Mune Studio, we had the chance to have a quick look at Brews & Bastards, a slightly tipsy twin-stick take on the classic co-op arcade beat/shoot-em-up formula popularized

Review: House Flipper 2

Gaming can be a real adventure in and of itself. So many genres, themes, and styles to choose from, with different people having different needs they fill by gaming. And as a game reviewer, while I don’t like every genre or game style (and that’s fine), I’m doing this job for the benefit of others.

Hardware Review: Nacon RIG 900 MAX HX Gaming Headset

Not too long ago, I covered a then-recently released RIG headset, the 600 PRO HS. One of the cheaper items in the product line, it was pretty good, but a step back from some of their past models. Now, as we approach the holidays, I had the opportunity to look at Nacon’s highest end headset:

Preview: Super Dungeon Designer

I enjoy quite a few games that focus and depend on User Generated Content (UGC), most prominently among them Super Mario Maker and its sequel, which took a known and loved franchise where many of us probably came up with our own ideas for levels in our dreams, and made the whole game about creating

Review: Airship: Kingdoms Adrift

When you dive into the video game sea, sometimes you can uncover a hidden gem. Other times, maybe not so much. But it’s always an adventure regardless, and in the sea that is my email inbox, I came across something that looked a bit different, yet intriguing. The media featured what looked like classic sailing

Review: Nacon RIG 600 PRO HS Headset

A while back, I wrote a review covering the rather excellent RIG 800 PRO HX gaming headset, and about the only negative thing I could come up with is it’s rather difficult-to-activate power button. With that being the worst thing about it, it sets my expectations high for their next-generation headsets. The 600 PRO has

Review: Testament: The Order of High Human

Sometimes, a review opportunity presents itself that, despite my not having previously heard of the game, IP, or developer, makes me curious about it by its genre and description alone. After all, while I have reviewed titles from almost every genre over the years, I of course do have favorites. Today’s game, Testament, is one

Ahoy mateys, it’s your local pirate friend (I’ve been known to engage in a little pirate action of the swashbuckling variety….) here today. Break out the sea shanties, because we’re doing a preview today, and yarrrrr…. it has pirates. And cards! The game today is Cross Blitz, developed by Tako Boy Studios, a retro-styled deckbuilder

Review: Evil Wizard

In most games with characters of any sort, typically the one (or ones) you play as is the good guy, who must triumph over evil, or conquer some insurmountable object, or get points by bopping bad guys, or what-have-you. It isn’t too often a game comes around where you get to play the bad guy,

Review: EA Sports PGA Tour

Like many ordinary people, my relationship with the sport of golf is a bit complicated. I have played it in real life and like it. However, I don’t really spectate it because it just isn’t that exciting as an observer. Golf has a relaxed pace and has a lot of subtle nuances that make recognizing

Review: Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship: The Official Videogame 6

Back in 2021 I reviewed Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship: The Official Videogame 4 (or MEAMASCTOV4 for short!). Despite not really being into the sport of supercross in any way, I actually had a lot of fun with it, and it was a very solid racing sim experience. While I gave it a solid score

Review: Dead Cells: Return to Castlevania

It’s always fun to go through and revisit games in your library. You probably have more than a few you remember fondly and would love an excuse to play again. Today, for many of you, this may be the case. We’re talking about Dead Cells, a roguelite game by indie studio Motion Twin with metroidvania

Review: Redemption Reapers

Sometimes, it can be hard to decide how to approach a review, oneself having multiple perspectives on the subject of said review. A game might play well, but is that enough to call it good? It is this sort of internal struggle I find myself dealing with in today’s title, Redemption Reapers, released on February

Review: Mahokenshi

As a game reviewer, I often have a number of coverage offers in my inbox. I don’t specifically look at or choose them with any expectation that they are going to be good (or bad), but I do notice when a particular game is trying to stand out with a particular feature or concept to

Review: Panda Punch

Retro-style games are all the rage these days. And side scrolling platform games were one of the things retro systems were best at, right? I know I like them, at least. So it only makes sense that lots of these are still being made today. And just like the old days, there is a wide

Review: Outshine

Oh boy, we’re going to have a clackety-clack-clack-clacky good time with this one! Okay, I admit it: I have a bit of a soft spot for typing games, and perhaps I have them to thank for being a pretty good typist (and high school typing class- F G F SPACE F G F SPACE!). The

Review: Session: Skate Sim

My relationship with the simulation genre is a little complicated. I don’t play this genre that often, and when I do, it’s usually the kind that’s still very much a game. For instance, games like Civilization are designed to (loosely) simulate how actual civilizations grow, develop and change over time. Racing sims are designed with

Review: Tower of Fantasy

Every once in a while, something comes along to surprise you. You got the job, a freak thunderstorm appears out of nowhere, or perhaps best of all, you come across a game that defies your expectations. Tower of Fantasy is an action-oriented MMORPG now available on mobile and PC that aims to take on some

Hardware Review: Nacon RIG 800 PRO Gaming Headset

If you’re a modern gamer, you very likely have or want to have headphones of some variety so you can enjoy your favorite games (and often their music) to their fullest without disturbing others. Particularly in the last decade or two, numerous companies have taken on the challenge of creating a good audio experience from
