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...

The Council: Episode 1: The Mad Ones – Review

An episodic game with a weird and mysterious premise. Sounds like a lot of games in that genre but The Council is actually pretty interesting. Featuring a bunch of interesting characters some of which are quite famous historically. The game’s genre itself is said to be “Social RPG” since the core gameplay really depends on how you socialize with characters and the world which effects your story. The Council- Episode 1: The Mad Ones is out now for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. So is this weird yet interesting game worth your investment or should it just be cast away, let’s find out. The Council is a game that is set in 1793 and begins as our player character Louis de Richet, a member of a secret society is on his way to a private island off the coast of England...

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...

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...
