Review: Cult of the Lamb

Last month we previewed Cult of the Lamb and I left off eager to see how its combination of roguelike dungeon crawling and base building held up in the full game. Now that I’ve had a chance to sit down with it properly, it’s time to see where it’s held up and where cracks have

Preview: Shattered Heaven

More and more, I feel like the most important thing in a game’s genre is how it decides to defy it. The way developers take the broad strokes and general idea of the genre and present you with something that feels fresh and new, or at the very least hasn’t been seen in a while.

Preview: Cult of the Lamb

It’s not often that I love a game at first glance, but I’ve always been a fan of that “dark cute” aesthetic. Of taking absolutely cute and saccharine critters and putting them in a situation that’s more than a little bit messed up. That contrast of something that wouldn’t look out of place in a

Review: Card Shark

I’ve never been what one would call an avid card game player. Sure, I know which hands beat what in poker, I can count for blackjack, and I’ve bluffed my way through a game of sheepshead or two. But I have no idea if holding out for a flush is wise and I’ve never known

Review: Godlike Burger

I’m always a bit intrigued when developers combine two genres, especially when it involves adding combat to a genre not known for it. I’ve seen combat farming sims, combat typing tutors, combat visual novels, but this is probably the first time I’ve seen combat as the core part of a restaurant sim. In hindsight I’m

Review: Weird West

Few games have been as much of a roller coaster for me as Weird West. What first caught my attention was the developer, Wolfeye Studios, being made of former Arkane Studios developers. Weird West is also an immersive sim just like Arkane’s previous titles Dishonored and Prey, but this time departing from the usual first-person

Review: Infernax

Few games have made me more excited over a simple trailer than Infernax. As someone who grew up with 8-bit action games, I eagerly covered a preview of it last month, where I was pleased with what they had and could only speculate on where it would go. When I heard I’d have the opportunity

Preview: Infernax

I’m one of those “90s kids” that grew up with games of the 8-bit and 16-bit generations. I have a lot of nostalgia both for the art style and game design of that era, and I am absolutely LOVING the resurgence of retro throwbacks. The latest in this trend is Infernax, a monster-packed side-scrolling action

Review: Date Night Bowling

I’m always on the lookout for new and exciting genre mashups. It’s a great way to add new flavor to a stale scene, to challenge genre norms. So naturally I was interested in Date Night Bowling. I do enjoy bowling IRL and while it rarely comes across well in video games, the change in theme

Preview: Shadow Tactics – Aiko’s Choice

I always have an interest in rare genres, things new or resurrected. It’s for this reason that I leapt at the chance to preview Shadow Tactics: Aiko’s Choice, despite not being familiar with the original Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun. A strategy stealth game, it combines isometric control of a squad of characters with

Preview: Salt and Sacrifice

In the wake of the massive success that was Dark Souls, a whole crop of imitators popped up with gothic tones, corpse run mechanics, and expectations that you will die a lot. Few were quite as successful and memorable as Salt and Sanctuary by Ska Studios. With a shift to 2D platforming and a style

Review: In Sound Mind

Nightmare House is certainly a name that brings back memories. I played that way back in 2010 and, 11 years later, it still stands out as a memorable first-person shooter that managed to genuinely frighten me. So of course when I saw the folks behind it made In Sound Mind, alongside having music from The

Review: Aragami 2

A short while ago we previewed Aragami 2, the sequel to the 2016 indie stealth action game Aragami, seeing what had changed from the original and what we were looking forward to. However, that preview left a few burning questions, so we just had to take the opportunity to look at the final release. Aragami

Preview: Aragami 2

Sometimes it’s worth looking back at what you’re proud of and analyzing what made it work. What were the things you did or didn’t do that lead to its success? Where did you fall short, and what didn’t work? I had the chance to sit down with a preview Aragami 2, the sequel to 2016’s

Review: Fuga: Melodies of Steel

Never before have I felt both so excited and so afraid to review a title before. The latest in the Little Tail Bronx series of loosely connected games, I’ve been a fan of the series for some time now. However, I also knew the story would absolutely break my heart. It’s a tale of vengeance,

Review: The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles

It’s been nearly five years since we’ve seen an entry in the Ace Attorney series arrive in the west, but at long last the wait is over. Coming to Switch, PS4, and PC on July 27, 2021, The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles is a remaster of a pair of 2017 3DS Ace Attorney titles that

Review: Winds of Change

Growing up as a furry in the late 90s and early 2000s, it seemed unthinkable that it’d ever be some degree of mainstream. Sure, animators on various cartoons were undoubtedly throwing us a bone here and there, but the thought of something unapologetically made by furries, for furries, escaping our niche corner of the internet

Review: Layers of Fear 2

A while back I’d played through a little indie horror title centering around a depraved artist called Layers of Fear, and enjoyed it. Years passed, and then what do I see but a sequel arriving on the Switch! Of course, this is but a port of a PC version which launched two years ago, leading

Preview: Nadir

I recently had the opportunity to sit down with the Kickstarter demo of Nadir, made by Polish developer Shockwork Games. Promising to be a mix of Slay the Spire’s gameplay with Darkest Dungeon’s aesthetic, it sounded nice on paper. Assembling a group of avatars tied to one of the classical sins, our skeletal warriors face
