Preview: Everspace 2

I love space. Elite: Dangerous and Star Citizen are two of my favorite games to play when I get the itch, but sometimes those games can be just too much though. Occasionally I need my space fix without having to use my brain too much.  Everspace 2 looks like it just might fill that gap

Review: Observer: System Redux

It kind of goes without saying the “Cyberpunk” aesthetic is very IN right now. We are merely a few short days away from the release of Cyberpunk 2077 at the time of writing after all. And yet with all the Cyberpunk imagery out there, nothing has quite scratched that Blade Runner itch I so desire.

Preview: Zelter

Here I am again! Coming to talk to you about another survival crafter. This time we have something a little different. Zelter from G1 Playground is by far the cutest zombie apocalypse I have ever participated in. It is Stardew Valley gone to Hell and, if I am being honest, is something I have wanted

Playism Game Show Hands-on: Bright Memory

I had heard of Bright Memory a year or so ago. A sleek first-person shooter sporting AAA-quality graphics and made by just one person. “No way,” I thought. There has to be a catch. Did the single developer, FYQD-Studio, pull it off? Not yet, but I think they might.

Review: Summer in Mara

A little while ago I talked about my love for civilization and city builders. They are just a nice and simple way of unwinding after a day full of getting stomped on in whatever competitive shooter I decided to torment myself with. I feel the same about crafting games despite the genre getting just a

Everything Revealed at the PlayStation 5 Digital Event

Sony has been teasing details for the PlayStation 5 for over a year now. It was no secret their new console would be releasing sometime before the end of this year but, with the cancellation of every major press conference in 2020, the desire to see some next generation games in action has become strong.

Review: Maneater

I love sharks. That is to say, I have such a wealth of respect (and fear) for them that I enjoy watching them with a healthy amount of space and industrial glass between us. You can imagine how sad I am at how few games there are involving sharks. They are perfect for silly fun

Preview: Volcanoids Co-op Update

I absolutely adore crafting and survival games, especially when they focus more on the crafting than the surviving. What I adore even more is the ability to craft with friends, but multiplayer has a pretty spotty record in this genre. When I heard Volcanoids, a game I had not had the pleasure of playing yet,

Review: Before We Leave

There’s nothing more meditative than a civilization builder. There is no story to follow, no cinematics or dialogue to pay attention to and, best of all, no expectation of success. It’s a great time to lean back, put on some music, and figure out what tech tree I need to research to keep my citizens

Review: In Other Waters

Now is a time where all of us are concerned about the health and safety of ourselves and our planet. The impact we have on our planet is a profound one and it can make us wonder whether we should travel the stars. What would we do to those planets? Do we deserve to populate

Review: The Complex

With the folding of TellTale Games a couple of years ago, the genre of choose-your-own adventures has largely receded back into the shadows. This void in narrative storytelling is disappointing for some, myself included, in a gaming scene rife with multiplayer non-narrative juggernauts. Wales Interactive are trying to fill this void with a twist of

Indie Label Fellow Traveler Announces ‘In Other Waters’

One of the best things about the current popularity of the indie video game scene is getting to see new and fascinating titles that wouldn’t see the light of day otherwise. This week, developer Gareth Damian Martin and label Fellow Traveler have revealed their new game, In Other Waters.

Review: Solar Panic: Utter Distress

I have been sitting here, trying to think of a lead for this review and I can’t think of a better one than tell you, dear readers, how lost I am. Solar Panic: Utter Distress is a game? I guess. I suppose it’s no less a game than your average “walking simulator”, but it really

Preview: Filament

One of the amazing things about video games is their ability to entertain while also teaching you something about yourself. Sometimes you learn you have fast reflexes or can make split decisions. Other times you simply learn a game can, in fact, make you cry. Filament by Beard Envy taught me that I’m not as

A Summary of The Game Awards 2019

As 2019 draws to a close it is time to look back at what the year had to offer. With The Game Awards being the closest thing video games will ever get to the Oscars, I donned my digital tux and tuned in this past Thursday, excited to see who would be honored and what

Review: Shenmue III

The summer of 2003 was a particular highlight of my childhood. G4 had just started broadcasting, I discovered Honey BBQ Fritos, and I finally got my hands on a game I had been eye-balling for awhile: Shenmue II. I had never played the original Shenmue. I didn’t have a Dreamcast, but if we’re being honest

Review: Need For Speed Heat

We are long past the golden age of the arcade racer. Once dominating gaming in the late 90s and early 00s, it’s been some time since I have had a Need For Speed in my library. With the occasional dip into sim racers with Forza 4, I hadn’t even thought about playing a racer again.

Review: The Outer Worlds

You know that song, “Anything You Can Do (I Can Do Better)?” Well, Obsidian Entertainment have been singing it for almost 20 years, and I think their rendition might be the best. While many gamers think of Bethesda or BioWare when discussing the great RPG developers of the 21st Century, the passionate RPG fans know

Review: Killer Queen Black

There is a fairly decent chance nobody reading this review have ever been to an arcade. Before you ask, no, Chuck E. Cheese doesn’t count. The fact that I am sitting here, reviewing a new arcade game that became so popular it was ported to PC and consoles is nothing short of flabbergasting. That being
