Review: Resident Evil: Revelations

by Nazih Fareson September 21, 2017
It was 2012 when Resident Evil: Revelations was released, a survival horror experience on the simplest device at that time (Nintendo 3DS), which weirdly enough delighted fans after the strange turn of direction taken by the franchise since Resident Evil 5. Acclaimed by the press, released between the amazing Resident Evil 4 and the fifth […]

Review: Fortnite

by Nazih Fareson August 7, 2017
Announced back late 2011, it took Epic Games and the People Can Fly team over five years to finally release Fortnite, which is probably their most ambitious project to date. Yet, before we start this review, you should all note that although the game is out now on most platforms, it is technically a paid […]

Review: Air Guitar Warrior: Gamepad Edition

by Nazih Fareson July 20, 2017
As a musician, there’s nothing more fun than pretending (or actually playing) a bunch of guitar riffs and crisp solos. A tribute to the “phenomenon” of pretending to be a guitar shredder, Air Guitar Warrior is one fun title, which was already available as a Kinect game to start, and now released again for those […]

Review: SUPERHOT VR

by Mazen Abdallahon July 20, 2017
Back in 2013, an amazingly unique title known as SUPERHOT popped up during a game jam known as the 7 Day FPS challenge. The game’s premise was that time only moved when you did. This meant that every time you stepped forward, backwards, or side to side, oncoming bullets (would inch ever closer). The game […]

Review: Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls

by Nazih Fareson July 19, 2017
Following the ports of the first 2 Episodes, Danganronpa: Another Episode (originally released on PlayStation Vita back in 2015) is a different kind, a spin-off that removes all the weird investigations and trials part from the franchise, to indulge in the pleasure of the shooting mechanics in all its simplicity. The story is almost a […]

Review: Demon’s Crystals

by Mazen Abdallahon July 14, 2017
In my recent review of Nex Machina, I talked about how difficult it is to make a good twin-stick shooter, considering how simple the genre is. I pointed out that the key is to come up with some manner of unique selling point that elevates the game beyond simple running and gunning. This week we […]

Review: Nex Machina

by Mazen Abdallahon July 6, 2017
Lots of game developers gain a reputation for being good at one particular thing. The folks at Telltale have gained renown for their storytelling abilities, Tripwire is the go-to for shooting, etc. But when it comes to energetic, colorful, top-down shooters, Housemarque is probably the top dog. Housemarque’s ability to consistently deliver amazing top-down shooters […]

Review: Everspace

by Nazih Fareson June 15, 2017
Every heard of Everspace, the new game from the creators of Galaxy on Fire? It’s such an interesting concept with no real way of defining it into the gaming known genre. Is it an MMO or just a predefined adventure? Maybe a multiplayer space sim or even a bit of hint of arcade adventure… Everspace […]

Review: Geneshift

by Mazen Abdallahon May 26, 2017
Top-down shooting is always a fun way to spend an afternoon, and so I was happy to see Geneshift, a single- and multi-player top-down twin-stick shooter from new indie developers, Nik Nak Studios. Geneshift spices up the action by putting you in the shoes of a cybernetic mutant combat monster with quite a bit of […]

Review: Mr. Shifty

by Mazen Abdallahon April 28, 2017
Okay so let’s get one thing out of the way. Mr. Shifty is similar to Hotline Miami. It’s not ‘Hotline Miami meets x’ or a new take on the formula, it’s a top-down action game that shares various similarities with everyone’s favorite neon-soaked murder-and-drugs simulator. However, Mr. Shifty very much does its own thing in […]
