Serious Sam 4 PC Review

When it comes to making sequels for the Serious Sam franchise, Croteam tends to follow a rather radical strategy. With the release of every new Serious Sam installment, this talented studio has grown ever more ambitious in experimenting with their series’s visual style and thematic content. This method seems to have paid off because despite the core gameplay staying relatively static, every sequel in this series 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 absence of endless vacation photos on social media. Look, we all deserve time off every now and then, but constantly scrolling through selfies 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 working consistently with smaller studios to release unique I.P.’s. If ever the endless stream of AAA sequels start feeling 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

Rock of Ages III: Make & Break PC Review

Rock of Ages III: Make & Break is virtually impossible to describe in one sentence. The official blurb mentions something about “competitive arcade action meets tower defense”, and that the game takes inspiration from Monty Python for its humour. However, this doesn’t even begin to describe how this third entry mashes together different art styles, gameplay genres, and even musical tastes. This is one quirky and whimsical game. Continue reading Rock of Ages III: Make & Break PC Review

Trackmania PC Review

I first played the original Trackmania Nations more than a decade ago. The game came with a PC magazine subscription, and it was amazing that such a top-notch arcade racer was freeware. Nowadays, even Grand Theft Auto games are handed out like mints with a restaurant cheque, but back then a free game like this was a big deal. Naturally, players jumped on this treasure and did what the internet does best: Took it further than anyone could ever have imagined. Continue reading Trackmania PC Review

Skelattack PC Review

My ultimate guilty pleasure of low IQ YouTube content is gamer rage compilations. Seeing a cocky streamer instantly reduced to an infant-like hissy fit after a big ol’ Game Over screen soothes even my worst days. However, as these poor fools decimate their expensive peripherals, consoles and monitors, I realise that I have fantasised about doing the same many times: There exists a subset of games that are just hazardous for the lifespan of your gaming hardware, and Skeleattack is a new offender.
