Review: Observer

by Mazen Abdallahon September 23, 2017
Layers of Fear was a promising title, but it fell short in a lot of regards for me. For starters, the setting felt way too familiar. A haunted house inhabited by a guy whose sanity is slowly being eroded? It’s been done. However, when I heard about Observer, the new title from the same studio, […]

Review: The Escapist 2

by Mazen Abdallahon September 21, 2017
Indie games don’t usually have sequels, considering how much work the studio needs to do to get a title off the ground. When a small indie dev does put out a sequel then, it usually builds on the original and tries to set itself apart. Did The Escapists 2 manage to build on the concept […]

Review: White Day: A Labyrinth Named School

by Mazen Abdallahon August 31, 2017
Many people have criticized the Resident Evil games lately for veering too much towards action and not doing enough to craft a scary atmosphere. People instead praise newcomers like Amnesia and outlast for reinvigorating the genre. The truth is, however, that there were truly terrifying games coming out of Korea with barely a pistol shot […]

Review: Theseus

by Mazen Abdallahon August 19, 2017
VR is still at that stage where we’re exploring its possibilities, and the big question is whether VR can branch out into something with its own substance. That’s easier said than done, considering developers have to think of a whole new way for players to interact with their games rather than simply retool existing concepts. […]

Review: Sundered

by Mazen Abdallahon August 6, 2017
When indie games first began to caught on, a lot of them had tiny budgets and often held off on hiring an artist. This meant that we were flooded with titles that looked (and played) like they were straight off the NES. These days, however, indie games are investing plenty in their artwork, and the […]

Review: Perception

by Mazen Abdallahon June 30, 2017
Games like Amnesia and Outlast changed the definition of horror so much that now virtually every horror title is set in first-person and paced with a slower, more psychological burn. Consequently, new titles have to do more to stand out. In the case of Perception, the main concept is that your protagonist is a blind […]

Review: The Surge

Oh Dark Souls, we’ll miss you. With Dark Souls 3’s last DLC releasing a couple weeks back, From Software closed the book on its legendary RPG/Controller Breaking Machine. Don’t worry though, because a handful of other games are stepping up to fill the immense armored shoes left behind by the series. The most recent member […]

by Nazih Fareson May 18, 2017
Since the days of Arx Fatalis, French-based Arkane Studios has come a long way, establishing itself as a talented developer, working on projects like Bioshock, Dark Messiah of Might and Magic and even Call of Duty: World at War’s multiplayer, but eventually rose to fame with critically acclaimed Dishonored series. Only a couple of months after the […]

Review: Renowned Explorers: More to Explore!

by Mazen Abdallahon May 11, 2017
To begin with, Renowned Explorers is actually the base game and ‘More to Explore’ is their new expansion pack. We’ve never done a Renowned Explorers review, and the expansion pack lacks context without the game, so here goes. After playing a few hours of Renowned Explorers, I realized something. This isn’t a videogame at all. […]
