Review: Dead or Alive 6

The Dead or Alive franchise of fighting games is a series that markets itself on two things: fast and aggressive fighting and a splash of sex appeal. Apparently, pitting sexy well-endowed women and buff chiseled men against each other in brutal fisticuffs is a winning formula.

Review: We Happy Few

When I had the chance to sit down with Compulsion Games’ We Happy Few for the first time out at E3, I loved the witty humor and odd narrative that they had weaved together. I’ve recently sat down and run through the entirety of the full game and I say that my opinion hasn’t changed

Hardware Review: PowerA Enhanced Wired Controller for XBox One

Stay For the Third Party Third-party controllers have gotten such a stereotypically bad rap that it’s pretty much a meme nowadays. With official controllers for consoles often being quite expensive, though, it was pretty common for someone to own just one or two standard controllers, leaving their siblings, friends, or enemies with horrifying, yet affordable

Review: Just Cause 3

If It Ain’t Broke… Readers here may have guessed, either through the number of times I’ve written about rhythm games or through my current Twitter handle, that I am quite into music.

Review: Life is Strange

Back in January, DONTNOD and Square Enix released the first episode of Life is Strange into the world- which we really enjoyed.

Hands on Impressions: Life is Strange Episode 4

As I dived into the penultimate episode of Life is Strange, I was reminded of how the narrative drove me to the very bizarre and jaw dropping ending from the previous episode. The episode starts off right away and for about twenty minutes you just feel absolutely terrible seeing the consequences of the actions that the
