Minoria Review

Released in 2019, “Minoria” is a 2.5D action-metroidvania from Bombservice meant to act as a spiritual successor to the Momodoria series. Having no real experience with the Momodoria series, I cannot comment on how faithful it is to previous titles, but I can say that I really enjoyed “Minoria” and think it is GREAT. There […]

The medium review

I love horror entertainment. I love horror movies, books, attractions, shows about the paranormal or the scary. Everything adjacent to horror, either by visual aesthetics or tone, I am immediately intrigued; when it comes to games though, that is a different beast altogether. I’ve tried many games in the genre and I always wuss out […]

Going Under review

From personal favorites like Neon Abyss to 1.0 releases of games like Risk of Rain 2 and everything in between, you could make a top 5 rogue-likes list […]

Tell me why review

Representation in media matters. All art forms are expressions of the human condition and representing our complex nature and society through art will always have an invaluable place in our lives. This discussion is key to reviewing and talking about Tell me why, the newest game from DONTNOD. All formats have been terrible in representation […]
