Moonlighter and the fine line between a balanced and a shaky progression.

Video games are a hot commodity, at the moment; last year’s 10% increase in revenue in regards to 2016’s revenue is just the statistical proof, and on Steam alone, there were 7, 672 games released in 2017 (as per Polygon). In practice, the game industry is becoming more and more competitive and vicious for games […]

Mutant Mario

Recently, I’ve been spending some time with two interesting and novel takes on ‘XCOM-like’ tactical, turn-based games: Mario+Rabbids, and Mutant: Year Zero. These games offer up intriguing changes and new takes on a genre that has seen its fair share of growth in the past couple of years, and wanted to give my two cents […]

My Friend Petro

As an obsessive fan of various entertainment mediums, I’m a huge sucker for IPs that attempt to marry two or more mediums in a unified product, whether that’s through adapting an IP from one medium to another or by combining the inherent features of both into one unique experience (like rhythm games). While it’s obvious […]

How two studios’ visions of Rage 2 contradict and cancel each other out

Rage 2 is one of those games that are just good; not bad, not great, there’s nothing so incomprehensibly bad that it hurts your head just thinking how that feature made it through the development process, or anything amazing about it that it would make me think about it long after I stopped playing. It’s […]

Rumu review

Quick question: When you see the words ‘video game’ and ‘AI’ in the description of the latest sci-fi themed release, what is your initial, gut reaction? If it’s “AI gone mad and murdered/sent other AIs to murder everyone”, then Rumu may seem like another one of those. I’m not judging you by the way-that was […]

State of Decay 2 is a good game and a disappointing one, at the same time.

What makes a good sequel? Some say that it should fix the problems of its predecessor and expands on the positives, with more meaningful improvements; others will say that it should attempt to do something new and exciting in the same universe. There are many ways to make a sequel and be successful, at least […]

The Adventure pals

The Adventure pals is “one of those games”; a fun, relaxing action-platformer, which does not attempt to challenge the player with challenging gameplay. It is a goofy, light-hearted game, which you spent a few hours with (around 9 to be precise) and then you move on; you won’t break your controller, you won’t get stuck […]

The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening

September has been an irregularly strong month for video games; Control came out late August, Borderlands 3, FIFA, Untitled Goose Game, Overland, Sayonara Wild Hearts, Gears 5. The list can go on with at least a dozen more titles, but I’ll cut it there! I’ll be covering some of them throughout this month, and the […]

Finding Paradise

This is a review of Finding Paradise, developed and published by Freebird Games. A copy was purchased and throughout the review there will be some light spoilers for the game and its predecessor in the series “To the moon”. To the moon was one of my favorite experiences I’ve ever had in any entertainment medium. […]

Wolfenstein: Youngblood

As I was entering my 14th hour with Wolfenstein: Youngblood, I went back to the catacombs, which serve as the hub of the game, to finish up on a couple of side quests that I had just done in Brother 2 (the second of three raid maps that serve as main missions). I concluded the […]
