PAX South: SOUNDSELF: A TECHNODELIC Review

Posted: January 24, 2020 at 7:58 am   /   Videogame Reviews

Tucked away near the back of the convention hall was Andromeda Entertainment. The promise of tea and a VR meditation experience made me stop dead in my tracks the moment I saw their booth. This company has been in business for only a year, but they’ve already achieved something unique that no other game developer […]

PAX South: SPEAKING SIMULATOR Hands-On Review

Posted: January 24, 2020 at 7:53 am   /   Videogame Reviews

My first game of PAX South 2020 was a doozy! When I saw the press release for Speaking Simulator hit my inbox, the title alone had me curious. My initial assumption was that it would be a VR experience, but I am so glad I was wrong. Developed by Affable Games, this disturbingly hilarious game […]

Videogame Review: ‘We Happy Few’ Out Now on PC, PS4 and Xbox One!

Posted: August 13, 2018 at 1:08 pm   /   Videogame Reviews

A game of paranoia and survival, in a drugged-out, dystopian English city in 1964. That is how Compulsion Games, the developer of We Happy Few, describes their latest game on their website. To put it in even more relatable terms, imagine a cross between Borderlands, Bioshock, A Clockwork Orange – and one of many survival games like Rust. I can see […]

Videogame Review: ‘Dead Cells’ Masters Castlevania-like Gameplay for Modern Consoles

Posted: August 8, 2018 at 3:39 pm   /   Videogame Reviews

Kill. Die. Learn. Repeat. I grew up playing games like Castlevania and Metroid on the NES. No matter how far technology pushed boundaries with videogames, these side-scrollers were always reliable. Over the years, I’ve found myself coming back to them time and time again – and craving the amazing gameplay they offered with simple yet […]

The concept is simple: you are a (somehow incredibly cute, pixelated) dog roaming the subways of – you guessed it – […]

Review: FAR CRY 5 – Cougars & Boomers & Bears, High Five! PS4, Xbox One, & PC March 27

Posted: March 26, 2018 at 4:55 pm   /   Videogame Reviews

I have maintained since its release that Far Cry 3 is one of the best video games of all time. Far Cry 4 was a worthy sequel, building upon everything that made the previous game great. So needless to say for the past three years or so, I’ve been anxiously anticipating the fifth installment of the […]

Videogame Review: THE COUNCIL Episode 1 – ‘The Mad Ones’ Released Today

Posted: March 13, 2018 at 10:18 am   /   Videogame Reviews

I’ve been a fan of detective stories and murder mysteries for as long as I can remember. Give me a good film noir, Sherlock Holmes story, Hercule Poirot mystery – and I’m on board. I even own five or different variations of the game CLUE. Great detective videogames I can think of in recent years are […]

Review: Indie Survival Horror Game ‘Kholat’ Now Available On Microsoft Store

Posted: October 20, 2017 at 8:48 am   /   Videogame Reviews

Kholat is available on the Microsoft Store for $19.99. A couple years ago, I found a website called Pinterest Fail, where people posted their attempts to mimic projects they found on Pinterest. The premise is simple: terrific ideas, but less-than-stellar executions. Be it the fault of the creator or the design, the end results on […]

Review: ‘Cuphead’ Is Finally Out For XBox One and PC, And Was Well Worth The Wait!

Posted: September 29, 2017 at 1:21 pm   /   Videogame Reviews

Yes, the image above really is a screenshot from a 2017 videogame – not a still from a 1930s Max Fleischer cartoon. Cuphead was first announced at E3 2014, to much excitement and anticipation. In an attempt to expand the game, and improve the overall user experience, the game was delayed from 2016 until 2017. […]

Review: Rutger Hauer Returns to Cyberpunk With ‘>OBSERVER_’ on PS4, PC, and Xbox One

Posted: August 24, 2017 at 5:20 pm   /   Videogame Reviews

I have many fond memories of playing games like MYST and The 7th Guest, having grown up in the days of early ’90s gaming. Then mystery / horror games evolved into more action-oriented titles like Resident Evil, and more recently Outlast and Alien: Isolation. And here we are today, with a return to a focus […]
