Sword & Fairy 6 Review

Sword & Fairy 6 felt like I had binge-watched 64 half an hour-long episodes of a Chinese fantasy drama TV series. Productions values may have been low and effects cheesy but the actors and actresses were beautiful and the story so gripping that I couldn’t stop myself.

Where The Bees Make Honey Review

Where The Bees Make Honey has some interesting ideas with presentation and puzzles. However, the persistent high level of frustration I felt with trying to navigate the majority of the adventure because of issues out of my control completely overshadowed any of the good stuff.

Earth Defense Force: Iron Rain Review

One could argue it’s therapeutic to blast and hack insects into smithereens and hammy presentation ensures it’s not too scary either – until you find your thoughts wandering to entirely something else.

Vaporum Review

Although its absolute heyday might have passed, steampunk continues to whir, rattle and grind its way through fantasy fiction and media. The steampunk aesthetic has been at the heart of more than a few video games as well, including the BioShock series and Dishonored and its sequel. Add to this list Vaporum, a first-person, grid-based dungeon crawler.

Vaporum Review

Generation Zero Review

The game needs to grow on you, became a world away from you where you want to go back to, find the people who are missing and get rid of those pesky robots and trace the mystery to its roots. Thus, Generation Zero is oddly rewarding in its casual and non-commercial integrity.

The Walking Dead: The Final Season - Episode 4 Review

All that aside, I feel like as an ending for the franchise, as an end to Clementine’s story, we’ve gone out as well as it could have. This is The Walking Dead, after all, so any hope we are left with is automatically tempered against the death and despair of the world, and the fact that we are, as we always have been, the true walkers in a dead world.  But for an ending, I think one will do.

Beat Cop Review

Beat Cop appeals to me on multiple levels. There really aren’t enough games where you play as a cop, let alone one that has to spend most of their time writing tickets. Okay, that may not sound particularly fun, but in a world where bombastic is the norm, sometimes it’s nice to cozy up with mundanity.

Beat Cop Review

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Review

Sekiro is From Software’s purest distillation of a game design philosophy that values skill-based combat and isn’t afraid to challenge the player at nearly every moment. Eschewing big weapons, flashy magic and “jolly co-operation,” Sekiro is squarely focused on timing and the sometimes imperceptible progression towards mastery.

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel Review

The game remains as strong as it has been and comes strongly recommended for any JRPG enthusiast looking for a cracking yarn to spend time with.

Queen's Quest 2: Stories of Forgotten Past Review

Queen’s Quest 2 is a perfect game for adventure games newbies. It’s colorful to look at and there are lots of neat details in its numerous pretty screens that effectively depict the game’s derivative fantasy kingdom.

Stellaris: Console Edition Review

"Civilization in Space" would definitely be my immediate summary of what Stellaris is, and hey, if that sounds like something you need in your life, this may very well be the shortest review you've ever read. "Civ in Space, 4X players are going to have a good time". Done.

The Caligula Effect: Overdose Review

In many ways, The Caligula Effect: Overdose is refreshingly low-key and intelligent within its genre. It turns its obvious paragons into a personal drama of its own kind, choosing subtle while others swag, and going surprisingly deep while others pretend.

RemiLore: Lost Girl in the Lands of Lore Review

RemiLore is a collection of nice programming routines – smooth scrolling, nifty animation and neatly moving objects from monsters to projectiles – but they alone don’t make a very good game when everything else is mostly lacking.

Kingdom Hearts III Review

Kingdom Hearts III is an amazing yet flawed game made for the most die-hard fans of the series. While newcomers can still enjoy the quick-paced gameplay, the extremely complicated story will surely leave them bewildered.
