Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair – Review

Following up 2017’s homage to Banjo-Kazooie, Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair is inspired by Donkey Kong Country, and it is so damn good. It completely lives up to expectations, and is a worthy sequel in many ways. Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair opens with a fast paced and vibrant platforming segment that leads directly to the Impossible Lair, an incredibly tough level which is also the final level of the game. It’s available from the start, but given the difficulty, you’ll probably die real fast. You then spend the rest of the game improving your skills, going across various levels, and gather more hit points which can help you survive the Impossible Lair, and take down the nefarious Captain B. The platforming is really tight, and the level design is both cleve...

Top Five Reasons To Get The Zotac ZBOX MAGNUS EN1060K

As much as I enjoy PC gaming, I have always appreciated the convenience of a console. They are compact, can be easily moved around and set up in from of a television to play games on a big screen in front of a couch. However, I did want a similar solution, only instead of a console, I want a powerful PC running my games. Enter the Zotac ZBOX MAGNUS EN1060K – an ultra compact gaming PC that is superior to modern consoles and is also somewhat modular. And when I mean compact, I mean that’s probably the size of a decent gaming headset. After having used it for about two weeks now, the Zotac ZBOX MAGNUS EN1060K has definitely become my go to gaming system – powerful specs, better performance, and being easily able to move it around at will has been a real delight. So here are...

A Knight’s Quest – Review

A Knight’s Quest is a charming new action adventure game by Sky 9, and takes a lot of inspirations from games like The Legend of Zelda. You play as Rusty, who has to help save the world from ending, by defeating demons unleashed accidentally by his own father. There’s a good bit of wit and humor added throughout, and I enjoyed it a lot. The combat will be fairly familiar to Zelda fans, though it’s not nearly as standout – it’s a fairly basic lock on system, with attacking and blocking. The bosses are fun enough, and add some variety to the combat. The puzzles and the platforming is where the game truly shines – the puzzles are clever, and there’s a good sense of accomplishment that comes with solving them. Some puzzles can be a bit obtuse at first,...

Destiny 2: Shadowkeep – Review

For fans of Destiny, it became more than just a game – it became a hobby. We would spend hours late at night, running patrols, completing raids, talking about shows we were watching, or work stuff, and always seeing the numbers go higher. It was an experience that many of us had not had before, and in the period of three years, we saw the game evolve and change from a barebones husk of an MMO to an incredible online shooter, that was able to build a strong community around it. Destiny 2 sees Bungie taking everything it learned over a period of three years, and refining almost all of its systems, while making a few things worse. And with the game finally coming to Steam – the base game and a couple expansions for free, and the new Shadowkeep and last Frosaken expansion as paid content...

The Surge 2 – Review

The Surge 2 is the sequel to 2017 Souls-like game, The Surge, which is a more tech focused version of Dark Souls. It still has the same basics – tough and tense encounters, stamina bar, upgrades, a bonfire system, boss encounters, and a lot more. What it does different is the sci-fi setting and the incredible depth in character/build customization. You don a exoskeleton of sorts and set out to fight enemies in a post apocalyptic future. It’s a neat setting, and something I really enjoy. The way The Surge and The Surge 2 change up the combat is with how you can focus on certain body parts and dismember them to acquire a part that you like and would like to add to your self. Eg. see an enemy wielding a weapon that looks interesting to you? Why to target that, lop it off and equip...

Witch Hunt – Review

Witch Hunt is a first person horror game set in the 18th century. The game was made by a single person Andrii Vintsevych, and a game made by one person it is a very well made game. The dark setting, spooky looking visuals and the various beasts this game holds makes it ideal for any monster slayer. The game is set in the town of Bellville. The town has a major monster problem which is caused due to the nearby evil forest. As a monster hunter driven by revenge you must enter this evil forest and rid Bellvile of this problem.  While the story of the game barely extends beyond that, the game’s setting echo almost a theme park with a real monster problem. There is no one monster in Witch Hunt to get rid of they come in many shapes and sizes from a plant that splits open to demons that fly. The...

Hyper Light Drifter – Review

Hyper Light Drifter, is an old school of old school looking game, with pixelated graphics and 2D animation; even so Hyper Light Drifter creates a brilliant gameplay experience through an amazing story and tweaked up combat mechanics. The visuals though old school capture you through it’s trippy colours and beautiful audiotrack.  It explores the theme of a man’s quest through a broken and deserted world, with high maturity and great attention to detail making it a treat for the player. The sleek combat with smooth and diverse attack moves pulls together a meaningfully challenging way through the story. The combat moves vary from long range attack to melee attacks to dash move, all set so tightly over the controls that the combat is satisfying even if difficult. Though story remains elusive ...

Ion Fury – Review

Ion Fury is a first person shooter action game which is mostly an all out rage bloodbath, supported by a heavy metal audiotrack. The game’s visual look old and it’s based on many old school games, the chunky, at time pixelated graphics bring in a nostalgic feeling.  The game’s combat system is extremely challenging unlike most First Person Shooters, Ion Fury offers to the player no recharging health, or the ability to take cover or tutorial to the game; this makes the shooting of Ion Fury absolutely raw, and for someone with a thrill for that kind of challenge this game sits very well. The game has no real focus on story, mostly focusing on hardcore action, which can easily become a boring after a point if it was not for the range of weapons to experiment with. Ion Fury offers an exc...

Warhammer Vermintide 2: Winds of Magic – Review

Warhammer Vermintide 2: Winds of Magic is a much awaited expansion to Vermintide 2. As expansions go, the game setup mostly remains the same with new missions added and new enemies to kill with ones giant warhammer. The addition of new kinds of enemies in Winds of Magic was a much needed addition, bringing more variety to the Vermintide universe. The strongly separated main game and endgame, makes, you focus on the development of multiple different characters, rather than focusing on just one character. The expansion offers more variety to the base games and more flexibility to the RPG elements.  The game also offers a chance to play with friends through a new weave system which is really fun to try out. The new mastery system and fusion systems are all great add ons to the base games and ...

Kill La Kill If – Review

Kill La Kill If takes most of its gameplay and combat mechanics from past 3D anime fighters like ‘Jump Force’ and ‘Naruto the Ultimate Ninja Series’. At first glance, while the game seems to offer everything that one might expect 3D anime fighters to offer and from a beloved animated series; Kill la Kill If mostly doesn’t hold up to the view for long. The combat is loose and badly designed and feels sluggish a lot of the times, making the losing many a time unfair. Other than that, the combat is in itself limiting, with only three ranges of attack, a melee attack -mostly close range one-, a long range attack, and special move. These are specific to the character you are playing but do become limited and repetitive after a while.  The camera also extremely badly designed rather than focusin...

FIFA 20 – Review

Another year goes by and with it another FIFA title rolls its way into our lives. FIFA 20 tries to shake things up this time though with a brand new game mode that is essentially a whole game on its own in Volta Mode. But with FIFA, it’s always a lot of good stuff mixed in with some frustrating and bad stuff. FIFA 20’s gameplay is in my opinion much better than its previous iteration. Instead of being extremely slow or extremely fast paced, games to me felt rather balanced which gave you enough time on the ball to build up plays but also had blistering moments of counter-attacking and lobbed through balls that would slice open the defense of opposite side. Defending has been improved thanks to the Active-Touch tackling system which has made timed challenges much more worth it. However, att...
