Review: Diablo III: Eternal Collection

by Mazen Abdallahon October 31, 2018
Diablo is an absolute classic and one of the biggest names in gaming, and I think one of the reasons it’s so well-regarded is the fact that it’s always been a trailblazer in gaming. The first two games were landmark titles in the dungeon crawler genre, and they laid down many of the foundations in […]

Review: Moonlighter

by Mazen Abdallahon June 10, 2018
Ah, roguelike dungeon crawlers. The bread and butter of the indie gaming scene. For the most part, ‘roguelike’ nowadays just means permadeath and randomly generated dungeons. The gameplay of roguelikes does vary quite a bit, but there’s always the central mechanic of trying, again and again, to finally reach that goal. In this sense roguelikes […]

However, if you pay attention to the Japanese-developed titles, Vita has a very diverseand memorable library filled […]

Review: Rogue Wizards

by Mazen Abdallahon November 20, 2016
Rogue Wizards definitely has a good title, implying it mixes magic and fantasy with fast-paced action. Indeed, Rogue Wizards is one of indie gaming’s classic genres: the timeless rogue-lite.  For those of you who aren’t in the know, that means you get a randomly generated dungeon with variations of enemies, loot, and other elements. And […]

Review: Blacksea Odyssey

by Mazen Abdallahon June 13, 2016
I think many people would argue that the message of Moby Dick is that you should never let your quest for vengeance consume you, but I like to think one of its other messages is that killing large aquatic animals is really bad-ass. Blacksea Odyssey lets you do just that: it puts you in the […]
