Review: The Evil Within 2

by Mazen Abdallahon October 20, 2017
The Evil Within was a horror title that tried to revive the old school run and gun action of Resident Evil. It was a bold claim, considering all the cool kids play games like Outlast (or more accurately watch some screaming imbecile play it). The game wasn’t bad, but it felt like it didn’t quite […]

Review: Wulverblade

by Nazih Fareson October 19, 2017
Ah memories, memories… There was a time when side scrolling beat’em-up were king, mostly from the early 1990s, where you would play these gems at arcades or home. While the genre kind of survived over the course of the year from the brink of extinction, preserved by some independent releases such as Castle Crashers from The Behemoth. Now, […]

Review: Ruiner

by Mazen Abdallahon October 18, 2017
RUINER is a name that tells you right away that a game is no-nonsense, and the new Reikon-developed Devolver-published title definitely delivers on that front. It’s an action-heavy shooter with tons of violence set in the not-so-distant future in a neon-drenched metropolis. You play a very violent individual looking to take on the system, get […]


Review: South Park: The Fractured But Whole

by Mazen Abdallahon October 16, 2017
Licensed games have always been regarded with suspicion by the gaming community. While there have been great moments in the annals of promotional games (Capcom’s partnership with Disney comes to mind), licensed titles are more often than not rushed, repetitive titles that exist mostly to cash in on a new movie, book, or show. However, […]

Review: Middle-earth: Shadow of War

by Nazih Fareson October 15, 2017
Back in 2014, Warner Bros Games and Monolith Studio launched a new IP based on the universe of Tolkien, which thankfully managed to stand out in vast sea of mediocre Lord of the Rings games, a game known as Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor (which we reviewed on our site). But despite its undeniable qualities, the […]

Review: Oxenfree

by Nazih Fareson October 13, 2017
An isolated spot where a bunch of friends are camping out can be the perfect setting for a horror film, and this is the premise of Oxenfree, a beautiful narrative-oriented adventure game from Night School Studios. While the game was released in early 2016 on PC and major consoles, it’s not until it was released […]


Review: Gundam Versus

by Mazen Abdallahon October 13, 2017
Even if you don’t know a thing about anime, you likely recognize Gundam. The seminal anime series basically pioneered the giant robot fighting genre we know today. Gundam showed giant robots fighting, but they were stylish, smooth, and basically just giant metal samurai. As such, any game that features Gundams really needs to embody that […]

Review: Pankapu

by Nazih Fareson October 11, 2017
Released earlier in September on Steam as a prologue episode, Pankapu is the first game from French based Too Kind Studio. Now out on Nintendo Switch in its entirety, I got to try this platformer game, which has a solid creative direction, interesting story, and bloody good soundtrack done by Secret of Mana’s Hiroki Kikuta but also newcomer Matthieu […]

Review: Dragon’s Dogma Dark Arisen

by Nazih Fareson October 11, 2017
Back in 2012, Capcom surprised us with their a new RPG IP, called Dragon’s Dogma. The game had some really fun battles, a pretty decent story but it was flawed by a buggy technical engine and rather crude textures. A year later the Japanese publisher followed with Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen, a new edition that […]


Review: Stardew Valley for Nintendo Switch

by Nazih Fareson October 10, 2017
Before we start, I got to confess something: I never played Stardew Valley. Over the course of the years, ever since the indie press and fans were following the solo work of Eric Barone to create a spiritual successor of Harvest Moon, I was preoccupied with other games and didn’t learn about it until I read its […]
