Review: Ninja Gaiden Master Collection

If you’re anything like me, you’ve always looked at bone-crushingly hard games with equal parts respect and abject fear. From the NES days to now, we’ve always had that one game that other gamers point to as the pinnacle of difficulty. For some it’s the Souls franchise. Others point to the usual suspects like Contra,

Review: Of Bird and Cage

If there’s one thing that I dig about the breadth of human creativity, it’s the willingness to smoosh two things together and hope that it works. Comic books are notorious for crossover events happening on a fairly regular basis. But movies, video games, and music are also rife with plenty of examples of cross pollination

Review: Resident Evil Village

With the release of Resident Evil 7 back in 2017, Capcom once again sought to redefine what a Resident Evil experience could be. The series went from an over-the-shoulder third-person view that continues to be an influence to this day, into a first-person perspective that became the talk of the town when Hideo Kojima’s P.T./Silent

Review: What the Dub?!

During the great indoors-ening of the past year, my group of friends has had to find ways to hang out and do things together while staying in our own homes. Most of us being into gaming, this usually defaulted to playing some kind of multiplayer game while chatting on Discord. More often than not, that

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: Gods Will Fall

Gods Will Gall, the single-player hack and slash, dungeon crawler, dark fantasy action-RPG developed by Clever Beans, was first brought to my attention at an event I attended in late 2020. At that time, I remember thinking that if the game could deliver on the promises made by its creators, it would be a very

Tired of Gods? So Are the Warriors in Gods Will Fall

The 21st century has revolutionized the way we play video games. Titles like Mass Effect and The Witcher III have shown us what is possible when you give players a role in the development of their stories, and what it means to have those choices come with consequences. But what if unlike Mass Effect, you

Review: Haven

When a game you create suddenly strikes it big and gains a sizeable following, what do you do next? Do you continue to produce content for it? Do you create a direct sequel, or another game in the same style? Or do you go in a completely different direction and make something else entirely?

Review: Dirt 5

I’ve spoken much in past reviews about how games in long-running genres or popular series need to do something unique to stand out. Put a twist on a formula, introduce some new mechanics, something to keep fans coming back entry after entry. Admittedly, that’s a personal preference. Some gamers prefer to stay in their comfort

Hands-on: Planet Coaster Console Edition

“Inspire and be inspired as you create, manage, and share the world’s greatest coaster parks with friends and content creators around the world.” As a player who was indeed inspired by games such as RollerCoaster Tycoon and Zoo Tycoon, I’ve been keeping a curious eye on the revival of the franchise by Frontier Developments.

Review: 9 Monkeys of Shaolin

I have some fond memories of playing the wide range of beat-’em-up games available in the arcades in the late 1980s and early 90s. Some of my favorites of the arcade era being the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arcade game, X-Men and The Simpsons. These all boiled down to being incredibly simple; just walk from

Review: Skully

There’s something to be said for expectations in a game. When I was approached to review Skully, I had been expecting something along the lines of your usual kid-friendly colorful platformer. Explore a variety of themed worlds, use abilities in different ways to traverse the levels, beat some baddies and do some light platforming. A
