Hello Neighbor taps into a childhood moment one or more of us might have experienced while living in the suburbs. There was always at least one house that for some inexplicable reason emanated a mysterious and creepy vibe that led the neighborhood kids to come up with all sorts of wild, baseless stories: “That’s Old Man Smithers’ place where they say he killed his wife.”
Sparkle Unleashed, seen previously on PC and Xbox, brings its match-three puzzle gaming to the Nintendo Switch. Similar in design and aesthetics to PopCap’s Zuma, I wanted to cry foul against 10tons for blatantly copying the design of a successful game. But you know what? It has been a long time since I played a match-three game and I found this to be a perfectly acceptable imitation.
Yooka-Laylee doesn’t branch too far from its obvious Banjo-Kazooie roots. It simply takes a “bigger is better” approach that doesn’t always work in its favor. Despite the flaws, it's a joy to explore the worlds and collect every goody.
How many buttons are too many buttons? Three too many? Five? How about fifteen? Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve been checking out the SteelSeries Rival 500 a fifteen button mouse which was designed for MMO’s and MOBA’s. It was a little overwhelming at first but after a couple of games and some customization, I was ready to review it.
ver the last month, I’ve been testing a new messenger bag from Peak Designs called the Everyday Messenger Bag. If you missed it, the Everyday Messenger Bag was Kickstarted a couple of years ago with over $4 million pledged making it the “most funded bag ever” according to Kickstarter. Is the bag worth the hype?
On Monday we posted the first five games in our most anticipated games of 2018. Today we're back with five more from five different editors. We'll be back at the end of the week with our third and final part of our most anticipated games of 2018 round up. Until then enjoy a look at some of the most exciting games of 2018.
Welcome to 2018. We here at Darkstation are back in full swing and are ready for another great year of video games. As we do every year, we asked our editors to tell us which game they were most excited for in the upcoming year. Today is our first of three posts with our most anticipated games of 2018.
Although 2017 will probably not be looked at fondly by most for its political and social turmoil. It sure was an amazing year for video games to come in and provide an incredible escape from it all. All three major platforms had an amazing year and one that I think when we look back on in a decade will go down as one of the best years in video games ever.
Mental health is a mature subject, one that needs to be treated with care if used as a material for a genre typically associated with big explosions, burly men, and questionable armor design. My moment with Anamorphine, a first-person puzzle game developed by Artifact 5, was fascinating because of how it put me in the shoes of Tyler, a man suffering from the effects of post-traumatic stress.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance is shaping up to be a humongous game that promises the moon. Though it seemed daunting, I found myself chomping at the bits to play more because I’m attracted by its granular interaction and the mechanics of a world that exists on its own whether or not you choose to directly participate.
