There are many adjectives one can use to describe Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus; excellent, bombastic, poignant, funny, bat-shit insane, flamboyant, pulpy, gory… the list goes on. But whatever adjective one chooses to assign Wolfenstein with, it is going to undersell the experience of playing it; for me it’s going to be extremely difficult to […]

The G.R.IND. on Finding Paradise
To the moon was one of my favorite experiences I’ve ever had in any entertainment medium. I am not exaggerating how much I loved the original game; it came at a time in my life were the messages it conveyed were going to hit the hardest for me and the execution of those messages and […]
The G.R.IND. on Subsurface Circular
My previous experience regarding Bithell Games consisted of playing and enjoying Thomas was alone but never finished it, so going in to Subsurface Circular I had no previous expectations.

The G.R.IND. on RUINER
When I first saw footage of the game some time ago, I was immediately sold. The visual style of vibrant red colours contrasting the black and industrial surroundings; the synth soundtrack that gave the animations and gameplay a fast-paced and brutal feeling evoked a reaction that what you are seeing and hearing is unique and […]
The G.R.IND. on Pyre
After spending dozens of hours with Bastion and Transistor (The previous two Supergiant games) loving every second of those games I was naturally excited about Pyre. Once announced, I was skeptical as I could not see how the 3 versus 3 battle system reminiscent of arcade sports games and the visual novel story telling that […]
