Review: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on Nintendo Switch

by Nazih Fareson November 16, 2017
Editor’s Note: More than a year after the game’s original release on Xbox One (and other platforms) as The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition, this review has been updated by Nazih Fares following the release of the game on the Nintendo Switch as well as the updates to all customers which reflects on the overall score, […]

Review: Yono and the Celestial Elephants

by Nazih Fareson November 9, 2017
In my recent years as a reviewer and in general lover of all gaming things, I rarely saw an elephant as the main hero in a game. With the exception of Tembo the Badass Elephant (developed by Game Freak and published by Sega), I can’t think of anything else until Yono and the Celestial Elephants. […]

Review: JYDGE

by Mazen Abdallahon November 8, 2017
Top-down shooters often come in the arcade variety, but sometimes you get top-down shooters that introduce sprawling levels with objectives and challenges. This type of gameplay doesn’t really pop up that often, so I’m always excited to see a title in that style. JYDGE puts you in the shoes of a grizzled cop in a […]


Review: ELEX

by Luciano Rahalon November 7, 2017
You might be familiar with Risen and the Gothic series from Piranha Bytes. Well, this German developer finally delivered on their long-lost vision in coming up with the open world RPG game of their own. While some of you might have Fallout or The Witcher 3 to compare this game to, I must start off […]

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: 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 […]


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 […]
