If you aren’t already frothing at the mouth at that spicy headline then buckle up because this review of a game that came out in December last year is going to be full of comparisons to the game everyone seems to love that I just never understood. Immortals Fenyx Rising is Ubisofts blatent attempt at cashing in on the popularity of Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda: … Continue reading Immortals Fenyx Rising Review: A Better Breath of The Wild and Then Some

Sloth Tales Review: Short and Sweet Platforming

Disclaimer: Sloth Tales was provided to us free for the purposes of review. Sloth Tales is a charming enough little platformer from Dracula’s Cave. Clocking in at roughly an hour’s max playtime, it doesn’t exactly revolutionise the genre. But at the low, low price of free, that’s hardly a sin. For what is essentially a playable trailer for their latest game, Lion Quest Infinity, it … Continue reading Sloth Tales Review: Short and Sweet Platforming

King Arthur: Knight’s Tale – Dev Interview

NeoCore Games have been around for a fair amount of time. Their most prominent games are most likely The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing 1 and 2. A Diablo style dungeon crawler set in the popular Van Helsing mythos. But their taste for old school European folk tales doesn’t end there.

World Of Warcraft And The Big Bad: What Makes A Good Villain/Antagonist

*WARNING: This article contains spoilers for the story of World of Warcraft and its recent expansion Shadowlands.* I’m a big WoW lore fan. Even the recent expansions where the writers have essentially jumped the shark have had some good moments in them. I like talking about the lore with other WoW fans and I can’t even count the hours spent theorising about the meaning of … Continue reading World Of Warcraft And The Big Bad: What Makes A Good Villain/Antagonist

Without My Arms Review: Press E to Scream

Bennett Foddy has a lot to answer for. He didn’t invent difficult, physics-based precision platformers, and he certainly didn’t invent making them as absurd as humanly possible. But, try as I might not to compare the two, I could still feel the influence of Getting Over It when playing Without My Arms from the one-man developer and producer Killerkun. A game I suck at, by … Continue reading Without My Arms Review: Press E to Scream

But as a well-established franchise, I definitely expected to play a well-polished and fun game with plenty of good scares along the way. But … Continue reading Amnesia: Rebirth Review: A franchise reborn again?
