The Medium PC Review

The survival horror genre celebrated a golden age under the PlayStation 2, but nowadays it seems as if these games are becoming an endangered species. A few titles like The Evil Within and recent Resident Evil remakes do a good job at keeping the dream alive, but let’s face it: That distinct flavour of terror always becomes diluted with too many jump scares and a stronger focus on action. Continue reading The Medium PC Review

Dirt 5 PC Review

Whereas bolting a wheel and pedals to a desk was once enough to call yourself a simulation rally racer, this sub-genre of gaming has since evolved into something much more elaborate. Today’s sim fanatics build up colossal, multi-monitor racing rigs fitted with custom-made gauges. They even wear helmets and buy licensed peripherals covered with the hide of a real dead cow. To them, titles like Dirt Rally (or F1) are no longer games; they are the means to feel the real experience of motorsports.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Review: Stellar SP, Same-Old MP, Scrawny Zombies

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is an extremely solid Call of Duty. You get a superbly stylish spy-style single-player campaign with dialogue choices, optional missions, and multiple endings. Its multiplayer mode is sprawling-but-typical, with a few excellent new ideas. Moreover, this year’s Zombies Mode is arguably the most accessible Zombies Mode to date (though it lacks content, at least for now). Continue reading Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Review: Stellar SP, Same-Old MP, Scrawny Zombies

Serious Sam 4 PC Review

When it comes to making sequels for the Serious Sam games, Croteam tends to follow a rather radical strategy. With the release of every new Serious Sam installment, this talented studio has grown increasingly ambitious in experimenting with their I.P.’s visual style and content. Their method seems to have paid off because despite the core gameplay staying relatively static over the years, every sequel has managed to offer a surprisingly fresh experience. So enter Serious Sam 4. Continue reading Serious Sam 4 PC Review

Star Wars Squadrons PC Review

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 a while now for numerous reasons, but Star Wars Squadrons appeared to have a lot of potential. Add to that the fact that it would not contain any MTX, and that it would not be a “live service” game and… well… I was really optimistic about it. Continue reading Star Wars Squadrons PC Review

The Dungeon Of Naheulbeuk: The Amulet Of Chaos 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 certainly many funny moments that put a smile on my face. Continue reading The Dungeon Of Naheulbeuk: The Amulet Of Chaos PC Review

Windbound PC Review

If there is one good thing to come out this wretched epidemic, it is the blissful absence of endless vacation photos on social media. Look, we all deserve time off every now and then, but the constant barrage of people reclining on white, sandy beaches would make anyone develop an inferiority complex. So whenever travelling picks up again, I will seriously consider deleting all my social media accounts, or I could just keep playing games like Windbound. Continue reading Windbound PC Review

Kingdoms of Amalur Re-Reckoning 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. So, naturally, when they announced the Re-Reckoning Edition, I was pretty excited to get my hands on it and see what had been changed or improved since the vanilla release. Continue reading Kingdoms of Amalur Re-Reckoning PC Review

Othercide PC Review

Isn’t Focus Home Interactive just amazing? They are one of the last major publishers still working consistently with smaller studios to release unique I.P.’s. If ever the endless stream of AAA sequels start  to feel like clones off the factory line, playing something from Focus Home Interactive never fails to offer a refreshing experience. I therefore feel a little guilty for posting this review of Othercide, the latest game under their production. Continue reading Othercide PC Review
