The Witness Video Review

The Witness feels like it’s living in the shadow of better puzzle games. While the graph-based challenges are about 20 hours of fun, and I could see me plowing my way through a book of them, there’s nothing to reward your dedication. It’s beautiful, but there’s no music, no story, no discernible themes; it’s a complete and utter wash outside of figuring out where to … Continue reading The Witness Video Review

Robot Roller-Derby Disco Dodgeball Video Review

Disco Dodgeball is a game that anyone who enjoys first person shooters should honestly consider. Sadly, there’s not a huge fan base with this game, but the ones that are there are friendly and supportive, and there’s a nice catalogue of guides to help you learn the ropes. It’s non-stop frantic fun that gets more rewarding as you become a stronger droid, and nothing tops … Continue reading Robot Roller-Derby Disco Dodgeball Video Review

Crimson Room: Decade Review

Crimson Room: Decade will not be on anyone’s favorite puzzle games list. It’s aggravatingly unfair and lacks any imagination for a game that proudly proclaims ten years of experience. The unnecessarily complicated storyline is delivered so fast and then is completely forgotten when some discovery could’ve made it another mystery to solve. The actual puzzles are so asinine, that you’ll usually think there’s something more … Continue reading Crimson Room: Decade Review

CrossCode Getting A Huge Content Update

In case you couldn’t tell- I’m a huge fan of classic RPGs. I’m a little partial to Turn-Based, but I enjoy a good action entry as well. Given that most choices stem down to third-person button mashers or western sandbox, I’m always interested when I see a studio shaking things up. Taking familiar gameplay and structure, but bending it just enough to make something new … Continue reading CrossCode Getting A Huge Content Update

Trulon: The Shadow Engine Review

While it’s based on a novelized series, Trulon feels like a shell of a narrative experience.  The story in paper thin and the characters aren’t given any real development.  The combat system is inventive and embraces the charm of MTG and other tabletop games, but bogs down the experience with unnecessarily tedious and repetitive animations.  The game was designed for mobile gamers, and the developers … Continue reading Trulon: The Shadow Engine Review

Celestial Tear: Demon’s Revenge Review

Celestial Tear: Demon’s Revenge is a fantastic JRPG that’s marred down by technical problems.  Built on the RPG Maker engine, the game has so many limitations, hardly any customization, and crashes too often to ignore.  If you’re willing to wade through it though, and you should, the game offers an engaging and yet familiar storyline, a nice blend of battle systems and some stellar ideas. … Continue reading Celestial Tear: Demon’s Revenge Review

System Shock Review

System Shock rightfully deserves its spot in the annals of history, but the experience simply isn’t that enjoyable today.  It’s innovative controls left a lasting impression on the industry but lacks the improvements that we find commonplace today. SHODAN and the storyline were revolutionary at the time, but by today’s standards, it’s simply not enough to engage you for the long hours it takes to … Continue reading System Shock Review

Pure Hold’Em Review

Being a poker fan, I feel confident in recommending this newest entry.  It’s fast-paced, visually dynamic, and offers a great atmosphere in a reserved casino.  The game however does feature some bizarre choices, such as playing against small electronic screens instead of people.  The options are also lacking, at least until they allow you to buy different sets of cards.  The game also has a … Continue reading Pure Hold’Em Review

Battle Fantasia: Revised Edition Review

This beautiful and inspired fighter has aged well, but this bare-bones edition is far from ‘Revised’.  The game does feature an engaging and fair fighting system with creative 3D characters and a cheerful storyline that’ll surely make you chuckle as you play through it.  Outside of that, the game suffers from a horrendous network feature, uninspired game modes, and only native voice overs.  For a … Continue reading Battle Fantasia: Revised Edition Review

Space Colony: Steam Edition Review

Space Colony: Steam Edition has moments where it really shows its age, but for those who don’t mind playing older games- this one does hold up pretty well.  Its quirky characters and multi-leveled gameplay should provide fans of the genre some enjoyment, however frustrating that may become.  Outside of some cleaned up visuals, this game remains largely the same, including some truly frustrating levels.  Those … Continue reading Space Colony: Steam Edition Review
