Extinction – Review

Take Attack on Titan and mash it up with a fantasy world that is rich with Orcs and you get Extinction. Not the term, but the game. But also actual extinction in the game because Big Boy Orcs are trying to make the human race go extinct. Developed by Iron Galaxy and Published by Modus Games, Extinction is out now for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. So is this game a good homage to Attack on Titan and Shadow of the Colossus or is it just a gigantic clone that fails to show up, let’s find out. The game has you play as Avil, who is part of an elite group of soldiers known as the Sentinels who have been tasked to protect cities and kill the Ravenii who are bloodthirsty monsters that are 150 feet tall.

Detention – Review

Horror games are something that I usually steer clear of and are really not my forte. Mainly because most horror games use a lot of jumpscares which is something that I’m not a big fan of, especially since they’re overused and it ends up feeling liking a very cheap way to scare someone. In comes Detention, a 2D horror game with a unique art style that doesn’t jumpscare you to death. Now while traditional horror games are linear level based first or third person experiences, Detention has a unique take with it’s 2D side-scrolling gameplay. Developed and published by Red Candle Games, Detention is now available on Windows, MacOS, Linux, PlayStation 4 and the Nintendo Switch. Detention is a game by a game company from Taiwan and is set in a fictitious 1960’s Taiw...

Way Of The Passive Fist – Review

Beat Em’ games are aplenty with varying art styles, settings, combat choices etc but this is the first time I’ve seen such a unique take on a beat em’ up game. Way of The Passive Fist is a more pacifist take on the beat em’ up genre that really piqued my interest. Developed and published by Household Games Inc. It is available on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Windows, Mac and Linux platforms. So is this interesting beat em’ up actually any good or is it just fodder for the beat em’ up genre, let’s find out. Way of The Passive Fist is very unique and colorful brawler. In a genre where you have to fight and beat up enemies to progress this game takes a different approach. Instead of having you lead the fight and have you just pummel enemies, it has yo...

God Of War – Review

The Ghost of Sparta, the God of War, the man who brought down Mount Olympus through a very painful and long journey is finally back. God of War is not a reboot but a sequel to God of War 3 with a huge time gap in between those two games due to which there is a lot of mystery regarding the life that Kratos lead during those years. God of War is not just a sequel but a complete re-invention of the series which manages to change the formula that was set by the previous three main games while also holding onto the aspects that made it good with a very modern touch to it which makes it feel like a God of War game. God of War will be out on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro on 20th April. God of War 3 ended with Kratos finally getting his revenge by killing his father but at the cost of wh...

Owlboy – Review

The fruition of a decade’s worth of labour has resulted in a game that is an absolute master piece. Owlboy is the vision of Simon Stafsnes Andersen with a lot of inspiration coming from Nintendo games which Andersen was a big fan of. The game has been developed and also published by D-Pad Studio. The development first started in 2007 and was scraped and restarted multiple times much to the dismay of the fans while also taking a toll on Andersen’s mental health. So after a decade’s worth of wait, let’s see how Owlboy does. Owlboy is a dungeon exploration type platformer game that really deviates a lot from the norms of the genre. You play as Otus a mute young human-owl hybrid who can fly, roll and spin but can’t do much besides that. The unique take of this gam...

Bridge Constructor Portal – Review

Take two very interesting puzzle solving games and this is what you get. Bridge Constructor Portal is a game which can be described as the offspring of Bridge Constructor and Portal. Now, both those games are great on their own and both have very unique and interesting takes on gameplay. Developed by ClockStone and published by Headup Games this game is available on most major platforms which includes Windows, MacOS, Linux, Android, iOS and now is being realeased on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. So is this game a good mashup of the ideas of both these games or is it just a weak bridge that fails from holding onto the expectations of fans of both these titles, let’s find out. Bridge Constructor Portal is first and foremost a Bridge Constructor game with the Portal s...

Surviving Mars – Review

With Space Travel becoming more and more efficient by the day, we can look forward to one day travelling in space. Not to mention, with so much data and information about Mars that we possess today we can really use that to create more accurate and realistic fictional media.

Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom – Review

Rarely do we ever see a sequel to a game that improves on everything from the prequel and then some. Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom is one of those very rare titles. This JRPG game takes you on a wonderful journey across a variety of locations and while being arguably one of the best JRPGs to have come out in recent times, it has its own identity which makes this game all the more better. Ni No Kuni II is out now on the PlayStation 4 and Windows platforms. Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom is a standalone sequel that you can play without worrying about the events of the previous game. While it does have nods to the original Ni no Kuni game, they’re not so substantial or important that you’ll feel lost or out of the loop. In Ni no Kuni II you take on the role of Evan, a cat earre...

Make ‘Hope’ Great Again – Far Cry 5 Review

Tyrannical dictators, a land filled with war and strife and plenty of guns and explosions, Far Cry 5 is back and it is back with an explosive bang. A great someone once described Far Cry 3 as “Skyrim but with guns” and funnily enough 2 Far Cry games later this statement still holds true. Just change it to “Skyrim with Guns in America” and you’ve described this game perfectly. Far Cry 5 is the series’ return to it’s first person shooter focused modern day game after the previous installment in the series, Far Cry Primal. After Far Cry 3 and 4 I was a little burned out on the same formula and after a break in setting and gameplay, its back to its looting, shooting bombastic ways. So, does the new Far Cry actually change things up or is it still the s...

Crossing Souls – Review

A nostalgia trip down memory lane to the 80’s with a lot of references and design to go with it, Crossing Souls tries to take you back to a more simpler time when showing up to your friend’s house unannounced was normal and spending the whole day out playing with your friends and hanging out was routine. Crossing Souls is a 2D action-adventure platforming game with a pixel art art-style and has been developed by Fourattic and published by Devolver Digital. It is available on the PlayStation 4, Windows, Mac and Linux. Crossing Souls has you play as five children living in California in the 80s. On the start of their summer vacation, the five kids find a dead body in a Californian forest and along with the body they find a mysterious artifact whose power they do not understand. T...

Sea Of Thieves – Review

A game made by developers whose name is also indicative of their recent game releases, Rare releases a game that has been highly anticipated ever since its announcement. Sea of Thieves is an open-world action adventure game with a strong focus on multiplayer. It focuses on literal piracy and plundering with some of the best water systems till date. With a lot of expectations from this game, players have been anticipating this game and looking forward to it, especially Xbox One owners. So, does Sea of Thieves deliver or is it just a gorgeous treasure chest that is filled with nothing, let’s find out. Sea of Thieves has you play as a pirate who with his other pirate friends must find and plunder treasure. There’s not really a story in the game other than that. The game focuses mo...
