by Nazih Fareson June 8, 2018
Despite a number of technical flaws, the original State of Decay managed to convince a small crowd of devout survival players with its original vision of a zombie game. Nearly five years after the first release, Undead Labs partnered with Microsoft on making its sequel an exclusivity for the Xbox One and PC, and even if State […]

Review: Sea of Thieves

by Nazih Fareson March 23, 2018
When I think of Rare, what pops into my mind is all the lovely memories I had playing their iconic games like Battletoad, Donkey Kong Country, and the amazing Perfect Dark. Nowadays, Rare is part of Microsoft long list of owned studios, and have been working on numerous Xbox exclusives since the early days of 2002 […]

Post-apocalyptic seemed to be a theme fit for gaming, and although this term certainly makes you think of the Fallout series which brilliantly portrays it, other titles such Wasteland, Metro 2033 or The Last of Us have done well in their own ways. What is rare however, is to see a Japanese studio to be […]
