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...

Space Engineers – Review

Space Engineers combines the ambitions of No Man’s Sky and the creative elements of Minecraft into one gigantic space adventure where you explore planets, gather resources, build your own ships and outposts and survive the harsh wonders of space. It has a lot of depth, and interwoven gameplay mechanics, and you can play both solo and in co-op. Exploration is an absolute delight, because the game is a treat to look at. And discovering new locations, gathering resources and building towards the next milestone is endlessly satisfying. Pros: Ambitious space exploration and crafting Lots of depth Looks great Has a ton of content Cons: Needs more polish Score – 8/10 About: Space Engineers is an open world sandbox game defined by creativity and exploration. It is a sandbox game about engine...

Asus ROG Zephyrus M First Impressions

The Asus ROG GU502GU is aimed at those who want to play AAA titles on the move. The blazing fast internal specs coupled with the sleek form factor and the 1.9 kg of weight make this laptop a worth contender in the arena of ultraportable-cum-gaming-laptops.

After working hard at Job Simulator, it is now time for a vacation, and that’s what Vacation Simulator is all about.

Hell Let Loose – Review

There has been a resurgence of immersive World War themed games in the last few years, and many of them have been fairly good. Hell Let Loose, however, is easily the best one of these I have played in a while. It is a first person shooter set during World War 2, and you play as one of many soldiers in a massive battlefield. Players control the vehicles and dominating the battlefield is not a one person job. Tactical teamwork and coordination is a must, and this leads to some impressive emergent moments.  Pros: Realistic World War 2 experience Great graphics and sound design Satisfying vehicles Encourages communication Cons: Needs more destructible environments Score – 9.5/10 About: You’ve never played World War 2 the way it was meant to be played… with lumbering tanks dom...

The Sinking City – Review

Set in a city plagued by visions and a flood, The Sinking City puts you in the shoes of a Marine turned Detective. Your characters also shares visions similar to those of the denizens of the Sinking City, and he’s here to investigate and discover the source. With a dreadful and immersive atmosphere, some truly horrifying elements, The Sinking City is a really well made game with a few minor flaws. The discovery and exploration is really rewarding, and you need to study the map manually and understand where you need to go next. The gameplay has some issues though – it’s janky and clumsy. And there are some performance issues. However, despite these problems, I have never played a game quite like this and would easily recommend it to anyone. Pros: Great atmosphere Interesting setting C...
