Nether: The Untold Chapter Review

Nether: The Untold Chapter isn’t a bad game by any means, but it's also not perfect. I’m glad to find, however, that updates are constantly being made available that will hopefully entice new players to join and keep playing.

Sailaway: The Sailing Simulator Review

I’ve always wanted to sail off in a boat. Sailaway: The Sailing Simulator takes sailing towards a realistic approach and is one step closer to me living out my sailing aspirations. I was eager to play the game due to my positive memories of sailing the seas in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker in search of adventure. The game requires a lot of effort to fully grasp its systems. In a way, it’s exactly what it says on the tin as it is a sailing simulator through and through.

Legrand Legacy: Tale of the Fatebounds Review

Legrand Legacy: Tale of the Fatebounds by Semisoft has been on my radar since I first saw it announced around 2016. Marketing itself as a love-letter to the Golden Age JRPGs, the game made a dynamic entry to the indie scene with its excellent hand-drawn graphics and charming character art

Skylar and Plux: Adventure on Clover Island Review

The game may be guilty of relying on that sense too much, forcing you to look the other way at everything that it is missing or does wrong.  Gamers who require more robust gameplay mechanics or more collectibles may find themselves underwhelmed by Skylar and Plux.  They should still be able to appreciate the effort though, if not the result.

Dark Souls III

The pride and exhilaration one feels from a Dark Souls game is a lot like getting wrapped up in a blanket, fresh from the dryer, on a cold and rainy night.

Shadowrun: Hong Kong

It is because of its middling story and inconsistent mission quality that Shadowrun: Hong Kong lacks the atmosphere if its predecessors, especially Dragonfall.

The Marvellous Miss Take

The Marvellous Miss Take is a fun and near flawless heist adventure. The visuals, soundtrack and simple controls are the healthiest elements of the game. The only thing holding it back is the game’s often crippling difficulty and the feeling of being put up against impossible odds. You’ll bang your head against the wall a few times but the real key to success is to not play angry. A measured approach and a careful step are needed to guide Sofia Take towards artwork yearning to be free.

Beat Blasters III

Beat Blasters III boasts 16 levels that range from "decent" to "really good". Outside of upgrades to your blaster, the game introduces no new game mechanics after the tutorial. That it can stay entertaining as long as it does with its three simple powers says volumes about how thoughtfully the game was designed. It probably isn’t fair to classify Beat Blasters III as a “music game”, but rather a quality action game that thrives on music. If this sounds like something that you would like to experience, then you owe it to yourself to give it a try.

Dota 2

The game is filled with superficial diversity, but calculated and brutal combat compose the core of Dota 2, and the game takes every opportunity to smash players who try to deviate too far from its thesis of thoughtful play.

Hero Academy

Its welcoming art design and accessible-yet-deep asynchronous combat are now available on PC via Steam. What's more, it makes a surprisingly great fit on this platform, but it does so by remembering that it works best as a mobile title.

Squids

I did enjoy Squids and people should definitely check it out, but I don’t think I can recommend that players purchase Squids on the PC. The pacing and length seem far more suited to its $2 app price tag rather than the $7 PC version.
