Mechanical Squids & Tamagotchi: Dark Train Review

Dark Train is Paperash’s unique take on modern adventure puzzle games. And don’t let the term adventure game dissuade you. What Paperash has created in Dark Train is a wonderful setting, great visual aesthetics, and clever challenging puzzles. Oh, and did I mention the mechanical squid? You play as the mechanical Squid Ann 2.35f, in control of the Dark Train. The train consists a creation of the inventor D. W. Tagrezbung, which needs to be delivered to a client. Without getting too deep into the story, and spoiling anything, I’ll say that the story is actually really interesting, specially for a modern adventure game. The game tells its story visually via the environment. There’s no written text or dialogue. The fact that Paperash has managed to convey a compelling ...

Transcending The Medium: A Transistor Review

Awe-inspiring, jaw dropping and absolutely mesmerizing, Transistor is all of that and so much more. A game that genuinely struck a chord with me and impressed me so much that it left me craving for more after I had finished it. It draws you in on an emotional level that makes you empathise with Red and, the events that have unfolded around her and are about to unfold. And just like Red, I was left speechless with the beauty of it all. Transistor is a sci-fi action RPG game developed and published by Supergiant Games, famous for their previous, critically acclaimed title ‘Bastion’. The game is set in a very cyberpunk futuristic city known as Cloudbank that is run by Administrators to keep the world safe and to satisfy people by letting them decide on things such as the weather c...

Review: Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum Gaming Mouse

Logitech’s gaming mice range is a bit mind-boggling, and so is making a decision when it comes to buying that perfect mouse that suits your needs. However, one thing that’s for sure is that the G502 Proteus Spectrum is Logitech’s absolutely high-end wired gaming mouse, and boasts of a wide range of features which attract gamers of all genres. Before getting started with the review, I should mention that I myself have been using its predecessor, the Proteus Core for over a year now, and frankly, it’s the best mouse I’ve ever used. The only major difference between the G502 Proteus Spectrum and the Proteus Core is customizable RGB lighting.  Agreed, they don’t really add much, but the Proteus Core in itself is a solid device. Measuring 132 x 75 x 40 mm, th...

Ki Is Stamina, & Stamina Is Key: Nioh Review

Imagine the brutal difficulty and calculated combat of the Souls-Borne games, with the gratifying loot grind from Diablo, or more recent titles like The Division and Destiny, and you have Nioh, the latest game by Team Ninja. But Nioh is so much more than the sum of the games it takes inspirations from. Its mechanics go much deeper, and demand a lot more focus and attention from the player. Before we go into the depths of Nioh’s incredible combat system, let’s discuss the story a little bit. You play as William Adams, who’s based on a real life character of the same name, and the game is set during a fictionalized version of the Sengoku period, a period of immense strife and turmoil in Japan during the 1600s. The story is based on an unfinished script by Akira Kurosawa, a ...

Say My Name: Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue Review

Yes they massacred the title, but Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue comes with more than enough content to justify it’s lengthy and girthy name. It’s a collection of three parts, 0.2 Birth By Sleep –  A Fragmentary PAssage, Dream Drop Distance, & Back Cover. I’ll say this off the bat, if you’ve not been keeping up with the Kingdom Hearts games, you’ll be left quite lost and confused with the happenings in the game. A Fragmentary Passage A Fragmentary Passage takes place after the events of Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep, and continues the journey of Aqua. It’s a small three- hour experience, which despite it’s short length, is rewarding and offers a glimpse of what we can expect in Kingdom Hearts 3. First off, it’s running o...

Welcome To The Madhouse – Resident Evil VII Biohazard Review

Resident Evil has been synonymous with the horror genre for over a decade now, and while some of the recent entries in the franchise have less than lived up to expectations, the name itself has made a reputation for itself that is highly regarded. Resident Evil VII takes inspirations from the best game in the series, and strips it down to the basics. What we have here is a horrifying effort to escape with a loved one from a seemingly haunted house. But, before I get ahead of myself, let me talk about the story first. You play as Ethan, who’s looking for his wife, Mia, who had been presumably dead or missing for almost three years. A cryptic message from Mia leads Ethan all the way to the fictional town of Dulvey, Louisiana, and eventually to the Baker Family house, the evil residents...

Red Undead Redemption: Dead Rising 4 Review

Dead Rising has always been about slaughtering legions of the undead with the wackiest of weapons, and the latest entry in the series doubles down on that with bigger arenas, better weapons, and a badass-er attitude. Let’s take a look at how well the latest entry in the zombie apocalypse slaughter-play-house does in our Dead Rising 4 review. The game is set in Williamette, Colorado, which had also hosted the previous zombie breakout, and takes place during Christmas time, around the central mall where the populace had crowded to in order to satiate consumerism. The mystery in the game revolves around the fact that the citizens of Williamette were supposed to have been vaccinated, and yet got infected. This calls for series veteran Frank West, and his sidekick Vivk Chu to uncover the ...
