  • Review | The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe

    Jon is supposed to write a review all about a lovely little video game called The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe. “This would be easy”, he thought to himself. After all, he played the original back when it released, and loved it, so it should simply…

  • Review | Unsouled

    I was shocked by how incredible this game feels to play. Paired with a solid story, great music, and surprising depth it’s an easy recommendation on Game Pass or for its $20 price tag at launch. Whether you’re looking for a balls to the wall…

  • Review | Trek To Yomi

    Akira Kurosawa was a legend in Japanese cinema.  His Samurai films of the 1950s and 60s have had a massive influence on western cinema ever since.  ‘Star Wars’ for example was heavily influenced by ‘The Hidden Fortress’, ‘Yojimbo’ was remade as ‘A Fistful of Dollars’,…

  • Review | Loot River

    After a slow start Loot River really grew on me. It took longer than I would have liked to start progressing but once I did things felt good enough combat wise, incredible enough movement wise, and intriguing enough roguelike wise that I put in a…

  • Review | Life Is Strange: True Colors

    Originally released in September 2021 ‘True Colors’ is the third mainline title in the Life Is Strange series.  Unusually (and some might say mercifully) this time around, the standard five chapter game was delivered fully realised.  Lessons have obviously been learned from the heavily criticised…

  • Review | Rogue Legacy 2

    Rogue Legacy 2 is excellent in every conceivable metric. The gameplay is fast, tight, and feels fair. It’s simplistic but beautiful graphically. The music is excellent, and the story is intriguing but not in the way. At $25 US this is something every fan of…

  • Review | Chernobylite for Series X|S

    This game makes you feel like you're going a little crazy. I was constantly questioning my sanity and also my intelligence: "Why can't I access my building table?"; "Why am I suddenly being ambushed by 5 soldiers when there was no one around?"; “Why can’t…

  • Review | Godfall: Ultimate Edition

    I’m shocked at just how much I have enjoyed Godfall. The melee combat is some of the most satisfying out there and the time since release has been well spent as they’ve rebuilt and tweaked what was a weak new-generation launch title into something far…

  • Review | Road 96

    Imagine if you can, a country held in the vice-like grip of a battle between Fascism and personal freedom.  A strongman dictator is relying on violence, intimidation, and fear to shut down any form of opposition or protest.  Using a glamorous empty-headed mouthpiece to spout…

  • Review | Back 4 Blood: Tunnels of Terror Expansion

    The base title is available still on Game Pass for PC and Console, and if either you or a friend purchased this DLC or already have access from a more expensive edition then checking this one out is a no-brainer. Solo it’s pretty damned fun,…
