Review: Battlefield 2042

Oh, hey guys. It’s me, Grant, I’m back from the year 2042. You thought 2020 wasn’t so hot? Looks like we’re in for another world war in 20 years or so. At least according to EA and DICE’s Battlefield 2042. So if you can’t wait 20 years, I’m here with the deets on how things

Review: Knockout Home Fitness

Wait, what did that title say? Something about home fitness? Oh no, that means I have to get up and move again… Over the years, many have tried mixing a game console with physical activity. All the way back on the NES, there was the Power Pad mat controller with World Class Track Meet. Then

Review: Rustler

Back in March of 2021, I took a look at a neat little game. Something of a parody on the earlier Grand Theft Auto games, the game trades a modern city for a humorous interpretation of a medieval setting, while keeping a modern (and coarsely-worded) take on much of the dialogue, story, behaviors and activities.

Review: Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin

I’m going to cut to the chase with this one, folks. I’ve got quite the backlog of games I haven’t finished or own but haven’t played yet. What tends to happen, especially for RPGs, even though I love them, is I invest quite a bit of time in them, get distracted by another new game,

Hardware Review: RIG Pro Compact Controller

I’ll be honest. My first gaming device was a computer – the Commodore 64. I laid my hands on it barely after I learned to walk. Despite being a big Nintendo fan and getting the original NES for Christmas when I was six, I’ve actually played more games using a keyboard (and mouse later) than

Review: Chivalry II

Ever since I was a kid, I’ve always had a thing for medieval stuff. Knights, castles, siege weapons, swords, bows, everything really. I also really dug the more fantasy type stuff like wizards and elves and such. I have some real pieces of armor, swords and stuff in my personal space, so that should validate

Review: Solasta: Crown of the Magister

I spent a lot of time playing Dungeons & Dragons-based RPGs (or games at least partially styled after them) in the late 90s and early 2000s. Neverwinter Nights in particular was one of my favorites, along with Icewind Dale and later, Dragon Age: Origins. The detailed character creation, the engaging story, I even remember having

Preview: Solasta: Crown of the Magister

While I’m not an avid in-person roleplayer (current state of the world not withstanding), I have had a fondness over the years for PC-based North American RPGs based on Dungeons & Dragons. These games tend to take a turn-based tactical approach, as does pen-and-paper gaming, and I also have a similar fondness for tactical games.

Review: Monster Hunter Rise

I’ve been a fan of Monster Hunter since I was introduced to it with Monster Hunter 3 on Wii, in part because of its straightforward and satisfying premise: killing giant beasts, making weapons and armor from parts carved from their corpses, and using those weapons and armor to kill bigger and fiercer monsters. I also

Preview: Rustler

Grand Theft Auto V remains a very popular game long after its release. But have you ever played it and felt like it was just a bit too… modern? Well, for those of you who may have, Jutsu Games is trying to solve that problem with their latest game, Rustler, currently in Early Access. Being

Review: Monster Energy AMA Supercross: The Official Videogame 4

When I started playing this game for our preview not so long ago, I knew virtually nothing about supercross. About the only exposure I’ve had to anything like it is Excitebike on the NES when I was a kid. Now that the game, plus a bit of research (more on that later), has given me

Review: Loop Hero

Hello readers, I am back with the follow-up to our preview of Loop Hero – a now-released title which brings some new stuff to the table for the roguelite genre. I wrote then about how well-crafted the experience was. Now that the game has graduated from Early Access, and is now a full release for

Preview: Monster Energy Supercross: The Official Videogame 4

Uh-wha??? Al’s covering a sports game? Did he lose a bet? I’m kidding, I’m kidding. Maybe…. Anyway! While I’m definitely not a stereotypical sports guy, I do have a thing for racing games. Although I tend to prefer the more arcade-style variety, I have a great appreciation for the subtle skill that goes into real-life

Review: Disjunction

I seem to be on a bit of a retro kick, following hot in the footsteps of our preview of Loop Hero with another retro styled title. This time we seem to be effectively moving from a mid-80s style to an early-90’s style with today’s game, Disjunction, developed by Ape Tribe Games, for most major

Review: Puyo Puyo Tetris 2

I love Tetris. It’s among my favorite video games of all time. Puyo Puyo…. isn’t too bad either. But I really liked the idea of Tetris colliding with another puzzle game franchise, even if it wasn’t one I was that familiar with at the time. And so I bought Puyo Puyo Tetris. It was a

Review: I, AI

Blam! If it moves, kill it! Shoot everything on the screen! Blow them to smithereens! The space shooter genre is classic, and dates back almost to the beginning of video games. Probably because they were easy to make, with a black screen being “space,” but also because they were satisfying. See how long you can

Hello to all the puzzle fans out there! Today, we had the chance to take a look at the upcoming Puyo Puyo Tetris 2. Personally, I put many an hour into the original, so I’m quite excited to share this sneak peek of the Nintendo Switch version with you. For those who haven’t played the

Review: REKT! High Octane Stunts

We seem to have a bit of a car game trend going on here at Gamer Escape. No complaints there. You may be surprised to learn that I enjoy me a good car game, especially those of the less realistic, more arcade-style variety. Today’s title seems to synergize with that, so let’s dive right into
