Kena: Bridge of Spirits is the first venture into video games by animation studio turned developer, Ember Lab. In the weeks prior to launch, there were some concerns. We didn’t get many gameplay trailers, and there was a review embargo until launch day. I saw these as worrying signs. However, after playing Kena, I’m happy … Continue reading Kena Bridge of Spirits PC Review

The Alien movies are some of my favorite movies of all time (especially Alien and Aliens). Unfortunately, the games based on that franchise have been a mixed bag. Some were good and some were awful. With the announcement of Aliens Fireteam Elite though, I was a bit hopeful. On paper, a horde mode shooter combined … Continue reading Aliens Fireteam Elite PC Review

Chivalry 2 came out last month on PC and Torn Banner Studios has expanded every aspect of the original game, making it feel much less like an indie title this time around. Additionally, the team has improved the quality of both its visuals and audio, along with its overall scope.

I only played the original Red Solstice for around 3 hours (just to get an idea of what to expect in the sequel).

Hitman 3 brings IO Interactive’s “World of Assassination” trilogy (which started with Hitman 2016 and was followed up by Hitman 2) to a close. And, despite some minor issues, it’s a pretty good game.

Let me start this review by saying that I was a big fan of the original X-Wing, Tie Fighter and X-Wing vs Tie Fighter games. I absolutely loved them. So the news of – dare I say – a “spiritual successor” had me excited. I haven’t been interested in an EA published title for quite … Continue reading Star Wars Squadrons PC Review

The Dungeon Of Naheulbeuk is a turn-based tactical fantasy RPG developed by Artefacts Studio. The game parodies a lot of things, including gaming and tabletop DnD. While some of the humor doesn’t quite land where it should (possibly due it originally being French and translated to English), and can feel juvenile at times, there are … Continue reading The Dungeon Of Naheulbeuk: The Amulet Of Chaos PC Review

The original Kingdoms of Amalur was released back in 2012, and while it certainly wasn’t perfect, it was an enjoyable experience that left me with some fond memories.
