Twelve Minutes Spoiler Discussion

Complete Story spoilers, if you want to avoid them check out my spoiler-free review. If you’ve read my review for 12 Minutes, you’d understand that I have mixed feelings on the game; on the one hand, it is an interesting, thought-provoking, kind-of-unique game with great moments and ideas; on the other, it suffers from a […]

Twelve Minutes Review

I remember saying for Twelve Minutes for the first time back in 2015 when Giant Bomb released an early demo video with the game creator Luis Antonio; I, like most people, was super intrigued and wanted to see more. Fast forward four years and the game has resurfaced with Annapurna Interactive set to publish; skip […]

The Ascent review

As far as next generation console launches go, the ninth generation has been comparatively slow with only a few “next-gen” experiences released thus far. Being someone who got in from day one, you’d think that I would be disappointed by how slowly the justification comes for that price, however you’d be mistaken. Even with the […]

Pokemon Unite impressions

Pokemon Unite is a free-to-play MOBA take in the Pokemon franchise, developed and published by Tencent. The obvious prediction there would be that the game would be a monetization nightmare and, surprising absolutely no one, it is! But, after a couple of weeks with it and more than a handful of hours spent, I was […]

Last stop review

Variable State’s debut title, Virginia, was an impressive and memorable experience; from the wordless narrative (it was the indie craze of 2016) to the orchestral soundtrack, it seemed like any other narrative-driven walking sim from a well-funded studio, but looks can be deceptive. Virginia compels with its wordless story and genuinely creates mystique and intrigue, […]

Death’s Door review

You know that feeling you get when a game turns out exactly as you’d hoped when you first saw it? Take for example Death’s Door: Made from Acid Nerve, creators of Titan Souls, Death’s Door looks like an action-adventure, Zelda-inspired game with a gothic, low-poly look, visually-impressive boss fights and tight gameplay, with some puzzle […]

Chicory review

I see a blank door and I want to paint it pink When I played Wandersong in 2018, I was not expecting it to hit me as hard as it did. Emotionally it was a beautiful and meaningful tale, but it was one of those games that refused to limit its ambitions. Despite its emotional […]

Steam Nextfest 2021 Demo impressions

Another Game Fest, another endless stream of demos on both Xbox and Steam. Steam even gave their event a separate name this year, and hosted close to 700 demos; compared to Xbox, Steam did a good job at discoverability, but with the quantity of demos (and probable quality) I am bound to have missed a […]

Summer Game Fest Demos 2021 Xbox Demos

Another Game Fest, another endless stream of demos on both Xbox and Steam. Here is a list of the demos I played and what I thought of them. These were the ones I thought were the most interesting (for me) from Xbox’s list; their discoverability was not as good this year, so I probably missed […]
