Durgod Taurus K320 Nebula – Review

I recently got my hands on the Durgod Taurus K320 Nebula, and after using it for a few weeks, here are my thoughts and impressions of the keyboard. The Durgod Taurus K320 Nebula is a RGB backlit TKL (Tenkeyless) mechanical keyboard, with silenced Cherry MX linear switches. This gives the keyboard a high quality look and feel while being comparatively silent at the same time. The Durgod Taurus K320 Nebula is a sleek and compact keyboard, without a numpad, but it does not feel cramped. In fact the ergonomics and quality of the keyboard are what I appreciate the most. It’s a heavy and solid keyboard and weighs just under a kilogram. The bottom of the keyboard has strong rubber grips that keeps it from slipping, and has flip out stands if you like to keep the keyboard at an incline. Another fe...

Rebel Galaxy Outlaw – Review

Playing Rebel Galaxy Outlaw has been some of my happiest moments in gaming this year. It may not be the best games of 2019, but it’s definitely up there. You play as Juno Markev, hunting down a killer. You fly around space, meeting folks at various space stations, clearing off enemies across various sectors, gathering information, upgrading your spacecraft, and being a space trucker/cowboy in general. The music is fantastic, with a massive collection of fantastic songs. Trust me, this game was made to chill with. The controls are snappy, and the shooting and maneuvering feels great. And the explosions are bombastic. The story is not the strongest, but the characters you meet along the way are personable, and keep the plot going. But you’re primarily here to shoot and explore, and Rebel Gal...

Control – Review

Control sees Remedy Entertainment coming back in full force with a strange, intriguing and action packed narrative adventure that puts you in the shoes of Jesse Faden. It’s easily among Remedy’s finest work in terms of world building, visual and sound design. You enter the Federal Bureau of Control seeking answers regarding supernatural events at your home town, and to find your brother. Soon you are deeply embroiled in something that feels far beyond your control. I expected the game’s location the FBC building to feel small and repetitive really soon, but the way the layout has been designed is outright fascinating, and offers a lot of variety. The building is hiding deep secrets, and exploration and discovery is immensely satisfying. The combat is also really well done...

Outpost Zero – Review

Outpost Zero is a survival simulation game, set on a hostile planet. You build a base, set up defences, and fend off enemies both AI and other players. The premise is interesting, and does a lot of things right. The exploration and build is really fun, and there’s a lot of depth to the gameplay. You can construct robots to maintain your base, and you’ll need to upgrade these robots and keep them happy with better crew quarters, for them to perform at peak efficiency. There are also a lot of environmental hazards like earthquakes, meteor showers, thunderstorms, and you’ll need to be able to withstand all of these to survive.  From being a mere survivor to absolutely dominating  the planet, there’s a massive journey to be taken, and it can easily get overwhelming. Outpost Zero is the kind of...

Beyond Two Souls – Review

Beyond Two Souls is a complicated game. It’s made by Quantic Dream, known for Heavy Rain, and tells the tale of a young girl with a ghost buddy, who she can control at times. This essentially gives her super powers, and the story sees her growing up in an abnormal environment. Such power obviously draws the eyes of government agencies, and her upbringing is mostly in their presence and under their influence. She soon sees herself embroiled in global politics, and this affects her everyday relationships. It’s an interesting story, that doesn’t always hold up, but is worth seeing through regardless. Beyond Two Souls is an incredible looking game – the facial capture is top notch and the overall graphics are really sharp. If you like choice driven games, and are familiar with Quantic Dr...

Wildland – Review

Wildland is post apocalyptic survival game with an interesting twist – instead of going about on foot, you are driving an SUV across a harsh wasteland. You come across people whom you can help, and you need to get resources in order to keep yourself going. It’s not an intense game, in fact, for the post apocalypse, it can be pretty laid back, and that’s a great change of pace. Driving is fun, and you are free to go wherever you want. The game also looks great, with fantastic weather effects. Overall, a fun game to chill out with, and enjoy the atmosphere. Pros: Laid back post apocalyptic setting Looks great Open world is fun to explore Cons: Not a lot of variety Simplistic quest design Score – 7/10 About: Welcome to the Last Commune! The wild land, which never recovered after t...

Killsquad – Review

Killsquad is an Action RPG that focuses more on the action and bombast side of things. The combat is super flashy and has a good initial hook that makes it easy to get into. You can play the game solo or in co-op, and in my opinion, co-op is where this game is the most fun. There are four classes to pick from, each with its own skill tree. Locations in the game are planets which are randomly generated, and hence makes the game highly replayable. The game is still in early access, so there are a few bugs and the game still needs more content. Pros: Looks great Excellent gameplay loop Class and skill system is cool Cons: Bugs Lacks content Score – 7.5/10 About: This is not the future you dreamt of. The Galaxy is in chaos, planets go rogue, and mega-corporations assemble Killsquads to r...

Redeemer – Review

Redeemer is an over the top action brawler where you play as a monk, who has come under attack. It’s pretty simplistic in it’s combat, but everything feels really tight and fluid. Kicks and punches easily flow into combos, and you can pick up items off the ground and bash enemies with it. You can also interact with the environment and pull off some really gory yet spectacular finishing moves, and it’s really satisfying overall. You are always encouraged to stay on the move, mixing it up between dodges and punches. Redeemer is also quite a looker, with some really flashy visuals and slow motion effects. Overall, really fun, especially in co-op! Pros: Mindless fun Looks great Tight combat Cons: Dull story Lacks depth Score – 7/10 About: REDEEMER is an intense Brawler where you will pun...

Arma 3 Contact – Review

Arma 3 has always reveled in realistic military simulations, and when they announced that they were doing a standalone expansion with an alien setting, I was immediately intrigued. I expected them to not break their realistic approach and combat scenarios, and they completely deliver. Arma 3 Contact tells the tale of mankind’s first encounter with an alien species, and it’s fun, intense and really thoughtful. Without spoiling the story, which is actually good, I’ll just say that it’s not a run of the mill alien shooter. Instead, premise is setup properly and suspense is built up accordingly. It’s a really interesting take on first contact, and the process of understanding and learning from it. There’s combat, and the new terrain and weapons are a welcome change. There’s also a good bit of ...

Heavy Rain – Review

I originally played Heavy Rain on the PS3, and remembered kinda liking it, despite some issues with both the story and the gameplay. Heavy Rain was unique, and it looked amazing. And the gameplay was novel. Playing it on PC, immediately takes me back. And it’s still kinda good. I am unable to give an open recommendation, because Heavy Rain is not for everyone. You need to be into this kind of game to like it. You play as multiple characters, looking into a kidnapping. It’s a dark tale, and the atmosphere is really well done. It still looks fantastic on PC and if you want an entertaining story, despite some cliched moments, Heavy Rain is completely worth your time. Pros: Great atmosphere Looks good Interesting and choice and consequence driven gameplay Cons: Not for everyone Score – 7...

Morphies Law – Review

Morphies Law is an immensely fun multiplayer shooter with a neat little twist – when you shoot an enemy, the body part that gets hit shrinks for them and gets enlarged for you. Good at taking headshots? Well, now enemy heads are smaller and your head is a lot bigger. Dominating the battlefield? Now you’re a giant, and a lot easier to hit, while all the enemies are tiny. Everything can get really disproportionate, depending on where you or the enemies are getting hit, and it’s ridiculous fun. There’s a ton of customization, both for you and the weapons, and I came to really dig the depth here, especially since everything is so vibrant and colorful. Your body parts also have abilities, and their size can change the strength of the respective abilities. For example, if you shoot the ene...

Wolfenstein Youngblood – Review

Wolfenstein Youngblood is the latest entry in the Wolfenstein series, and puts you in the shoes of Blazkowicz’s twin daughters. The game is set 20 years after the events of Wolfenstein 2, in a fictional future where Blazkowicz has killed Hitler and then gone missing. The sisters, Jessica and Sophia set out to Paris in search of their father, where some Nazi presence still prevails. The story is not as good as the previous two games in the series, but the gameplay is immensely satisfying and the banter between the twins is really fun to listen to. The enemies themselves are fairly varied and the encounters are well designed. The city itself is more open with various nooks and corners to explore. There’s a semi open world approach being tested here, which may mean that Wolfenstein 3 might en...
