Killsquad – Review

Killsquad is an Action RPG that focuses more on the action and bombast side of things. The combat is super flashy and has a good initial hook that makes it easy to get into. You can play the game solo or in co-op, and in my opinion, co-op is where this game is the most fun. There are four classes to pick from, each with its own skill tree. Locations in the game are planets which are randomly generated, and hence makes the game highly replayable. The game is still in early access, so there are a few bugs and the game still needs more content. Pros: Looks great Excellent gameplay loop Class and skill system is cool Cons: Bugs Lacks content Score – 7.5/10 About: This is not the future you dreamt of. The Galaxy is in chaos, planets go rogue, and mega-corporations assemble Killsquads to r...

Redeemer – Review

Redeemer is an over the top action brawler where you play as a monk, who has come under attack. It’s pretty simplistic in it’s combat, but everything feels really tight and fluid. Kicks and punches easily flow into combos, and you can pick up items off the ground and bash enemies with it. You can also interact with the environment and pull off some really gory yet spectacular finishing moves, and it’s really satisfying overall. You are always encouraged to stay on the move, mixing it up between dodges and punches. Redeemer is also quite a looker, with some really flashy visuals and slow motion effects. Overall, really fun, especially in co-op! Pros: Mindless fun Looks great Tight combat Cons: Dull story Lacks depth Score – 7/10 About: REDEEMER is an intense Brawler where you will pun...

Arma 3 Contact – Review

Arma 3 has always reveled in realistic military simulations, and when they announced that they were doing a standalone expansion with an alien setting, I was immediately intrigued. I expected them to not break their realistic approach and combat scenarios, and they completely deliver. Arma 3 Contact tells the tale of mankind’s first encounter with an alien species, and it’s fun, intense and really thoughtful. Without spoiling the story, which is actually good, I’ll just say that it’s not a run of the mill alien shooter. Instead, premise is setup properly and suspense is built up accordingly. It’s a really interesting take on first contact, and the process of understanding and learning from it. There’s combat, and the new terrain and weapons are a welcome change. There’s also a good bit of ...

Heavy Rain – Review

I originally played Heavy Rain on the PS3, and remembered kinda liking it, despite some issues with both the story and the gameplay. Heavy Rain was unique, and it looked amazing. And the gameplay was novel. Playing it on PC, immediately takes me back. And it’s still kinda good. I am unable to give an open recommendation, because Heavy Rain is not for everyone. You need to be into this kind of game to like it. You play as multiple characters, looking into a kidnapping. It’s a dark tale, and the atmosphere is really well done. It still looks fantastic on PC and if you want an entertaining story, despite some cliched moments, Heavy Rain is completely worth your time. Pros: Great atmosphere Looks good Interesting and choice and consequence driven gameplay Cons: Not for everyone Score – 7...

Morphies Law – Review

Morphies Law is an immensely fun multiplayer shooter with a neat little twist – when you shoot an enemy, the body part that gets hit shrinks for them and gets enlarged for you. Good at taking headshots? Well, now enemy heads are smaller and your head is a lot bigger. Dominating the battlefield? Now you’re a giant, and a lot easier to hit, while all the enemies are tiny. Everything can get really disproportionate, depending on where you or the enemies are getting hit, and it’s ridiculous fun. There’s a ton of customization, both for you and the weapons, and I came to really dig the depth here, especially since everything is so vibrant and colorful. Your body parts also have abilities, and their size can change the strength of the respective abilities. For example, if you shoot the ene...

Wolfenstein Youngblood – Review

Wolfenstein Youngblood is the latest entry in the Wolfenstein series, and puts you in the shoes of Blazkowicz’s twin daughters. The game is set 20 years after the events of Wolfenstein 2, in a fictional future where Blazkowicz has killed Hitler and then gone missing. The sisters, Jessica and Sophia set out to Paris in search of their father, where some Nazi presence still prevails. The story is not as good as the previous two games in the series, but the gameplay is immensely satisfying and the banter between the twins is really fun to listen to. The enemies themselves are fairly varied and the encounters are well designed. The city itself is more open with various nooks and corners to explore. There’s a semi open world approach being tested here, which may mean that Wolfenstein 3 might en...

Underworld Ascendant – Review

Despite some bugs and issues, Underworld Ascendant is a gem of a game, and the passion behind it is seen clearly. You start off in a prison like dungeon, and need to make your way through, interacting with the highly systems driven mechanics. It’s these interactions, and the clever puzzles solving that really makes the game shine. While the level design is clever, it’s all pretty dark and starts to look the same really fast. Same cane be said for the enemies as well, who lack much variety. Underworld Ascendant is a game with a lot of heart and potential, but it doesn;t come together as a great product. Pros: You can approach situations in a variety of ways Good level design Lots of interacting systems Cons: Buggy and frustrating Repetitive Looks bland Score – 6/10 About: From the cre...

Dark Devotion – Review

Dark Devotion is a 2D pixel art souls like game, which is a lot slower paced than other games in the genre. It’s great to look at, has a ton of fantastic boss encounters, and a deep combat system that’s immensely fun to engage with. It’s also really tough. You will die a lot, lose your stuff and get back out for the next run. But it’s really fun doing so and I rarely had a dull moment. Pros: Great combat Gorgeous visuals Fun boss fights Challenging Cons: Movement feels a bitt too slow for my taste Score – 7/10 About: Explore the secrets of a mysterious fallen temple and put your Templar faith to the test in Dark Devotion, where no sacrifice is too great in praise of your God. Measure your devotion and your bravery by journeying into deepest darkness for answers to questions that will...

Devolver Bootleg – Review

Devolver Bootleg is a fantastic collection of small titles reminiscent of older classics. Games like Enter the Gun Dungeon, Catsylvania, Hotline Milwaukee all are varied takes on old and recent classics, and are immensely fun. Some of these games can be a bit too tough, bit it all goes with the nostalgic feel of the games. If you are a fan of retro games, Devolver Bootleg is a must have collection of games in your library. Pros: Fantastic nostalgia fest Good variety of titles Great value for money Cons: Can feel frustratingly tough Not for everyone Score – 7.5/10 About: Devolver Bootleg contains eight original rip-offs of Devolver Digital games including:  Enter The Gun Dungeon Imagine a dungeon crawler but instead of swords it’s guns. But also everything is made out of guns and bull...

Dollhouse – Review

Dollhouse is a mix of horror and noir themes blended together in some incredible ways. It’s not overly scary, but tells a story that definitely can make you uncomfortable, and the noir visuals nail it further down. You play as Marie, a detective piecing together her past in a mansion as something is coming after her. The graphics look a bit dated, but the art design makes up for it. There is, however, a good variety to the scenery, and the abilities and the story kept me hooked throughout the campaign. Pros: Interesting story Enjoyable gameplay, good variety Great art style Cons: Can get repetitive Some bugs Score: 7.5/10 About: This haunting horror game draws you into the mysterious atmosphere of film noir. Delve deep into the mind of Marie, a detective trying to unravel the secrets of he...

Journey Of Life – Review

I was drawn to Journey of Life because of it’s interesting premise –  a man loses his fortune and decides to live off the land, and build something for himself. It was grounded in reality, and is probably where I am headed in life as well. This game seemed like good practice. Anyways, Journey of Life is a survival game where you start off on an island, have to scavenge for foot and items, build a base, and eventually move out to other islands who have their own eco systems. It’s a bit more laid back than your average survival game, but I feel that it’s to the game’s credit.  Pros: Looks good Chilled out Interesting setting Lot of depth Cons: Lots of bugs and unfinished features Steep learning curve Score – 7/10 About: Journey of life is a survival sandbox game where the player ...

Trover Saves the Universe – Review

Trover Saves the Universe is a hilarious VR adventure with tons of goofy references and fun gameplay mechanics. The puzzles are fun to solve, the platforming is clever, and the writing is consistently funny. There are also a good variety of locations to explore, almost all of which if filled to the brim with characters to interact with and all along the story keeps you hooked. You can choose to play this game outside of VR if you want, and the experience is more or less the same. Pros: Hilarious Good story Fun gameplay Cons: Jarring ending Short Score – 8/10 About: From the co-creator of Rick and Morty comes Trover Saves the Universe. Your dogs have been dognapped by a beaked lunatic named Glorkon who stuffed them into his eye holes and is using their life essence to destroy the univ...
