Review: XCOM 2: War of the Chosen

by Nazih Fareson September 21, 2017
Ah XCOM. One of my favorite strategy game after the Civilization series, Firaxis’ hit turn-based title redefined a lot of the genre after the release of XCOM 2 (which we reviewed back in 2016). While most of us were left wanting more, even after the couple of small DLC releases including Anarchy’s Children, Alien Hunters […]

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: Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition

by Luciano Rahalon August 31, 2017
It is hard to believe that it only took 3 years for this Kickstarter to gather over four million dollars to be able to create an RPG game that still adheres to the origins of that genre while staying updated with today’s context in video games. With less than seventy thousand contributors, we could potentially […]

Review: Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

by Nazih Fareson August 28, 2017
If Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry or the Just Dance franchise are key names that come to mind when we talk about Ubisoft in recent years, the independent developer and publisher has also built up a small reputation for taking risks, especially with new franchises in the turn-based strategy genre such as the amazingly beautiful Child […]

Review: Orcs Must Die! Unchained

by Mazen Abdallahon August 26, 2017
The term F2P has been sullied by years of cheap cash-grabs, but I liked the original Orcs Must Die games, so I decided to give Orcs Must Die! Unchained a chance. The basic premise of Orcs Must Die has always been that you need to mix strategy and action to defend yourself against hordes of […]

Review: Mega Man Legacy Collection 2

by Nazih Fareson August 23, 2017
After a first compilation released back in 2015, which featured the first six episodes of the Mega Man franchise all released on Nes, Capcom continue with Mega Man Legacy Collection 2, featuring the last main games of the blue robot. A journey back in time that might be too much aimed at fans of Mega […]

Review: Phantom Trigger

by Nazih Fareson August 23, 2017
After Mr. Shifty, a decent and dynamic game (sadly poorly optimized for the Nintendo Switch), tinyBuild are back with a new game for the Nintendo hybrid console (as well as on PC) developed by Russian based Bread Team: Phantom Trigger. A hardcore hack and slash game with RPG and roguelike elements for the small price […]

by Nazih Fareson August 22, 2017
After the excellent Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack of course Guacamelee, Canadian based developer DrinkBox Studio returned with a fun touch based game called Severed, out on Nintendo Switch, a year after its original release on the PS Vita and other consoles and mobile devices. Severed has you play as Sasha, a young woman […]

Review: Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age

by Nazih Fareson August 2, 2017
Two years after getting a remastered version of Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2 on PlayStation 4 (which we reviewed on the site), Square Enix are “hard” at work with more remastered of their 2nd generation games, with the last episode that was released on PlayStation 2 in 2006: Final Fantasy XII. Unstoppable when […]

Review: Pyre

by Mazen Abdallahon August 2, 2017
I often start my reviews by introducing the developer and giving some background on their work, and with Supergiant Games, I almost feel as if it’s not necessary. Their first two games, Bastion and Transistor, were massive hits that got a bunch of mainstream success. Transistor was even given prominent billing in Sony’s E3 show […]
