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
Death Stranding is a game that has divided many players. It’s certainly not a run of the mill, cookie cutter experience, something we’ve come to expect from many of the bigger budget games these days. As a result Kojima Productions is treading in unknown territory with their ambitious project and that is a refreshing change. Continue reading Death Stranding 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
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 being distributed as freeware. Nowadays, even Grand Theft Auto games are handed out like mints with a restaurant cheque, but back then a freebie 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
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. Continue reading Skelattack PC Review
I’ve been looking forward to Maneater since it’s initial announcement in 2018. There aren’t many modern shark games around, certainly none that are open world RPGs, so it peaked my interest. Continue reading Maneater PC Review
With 2006’s Gears of War, Epic Games had crafted one of the most influential blueprints for a third-person shooter, one that has barely changed for more than a decade. Despite receiving some flak over the formulaic nature of the combat, all six mainline entries still find their roots in the classic, over the shoulder greatness that defines some of the most addictive action in gaming history. But what if the world of Gears could offer a completely different experience? Continue reading Gears Tactics PC Review
Longtime readers of DSOGaming remember I wrote a petition for a campaign known as #SEGAPCPorts. The petition called for Sega to increase the number of games which they ported to PC. Most of those games we asked for made their way to the PC eventually. So know that I write this as a dyed in the wool Sega fan and despite Sega’s off-hands approach to this sequel, it is none the less a historic Sega franchise.
It’s that time again folks! Put on your straw hats, check your log pose and join anime’s most endearing gang of pirates as they beat up more marines than you can physically count. After five years, Omega Force and Koei Tecmo have finally shifted the focus of the Warriors/musou series back to the One Piece anime, and the potency of this crossover is as clear as it has ever been. Continue reading One Piece Pirate Warriors 4 PC Review
Resident Evil 3 (2020) is a glorified campaign expansion based heavily on Resident Evil 2 (2019). Most of the locations, items, weapons, and enemies reuse RE2 assets. Likewise, the engine, gameplay, and much more are borrowed from RE2. Continue reading Resident Evil 3 PC Review: Slash that Price!
