The animated Avatar franchise has had a bad history with video game adaptations. Past games that focused on the series have all been shallow beat-‘em ups with little enjoyment other than fan service. The Legend of Korra hopes to right the wrongs of past games in the franchise by being an action packed 3D brawler that can appeal to anyone. more

The Lego Movie Game Review

Words by Milo Fisher

After the recent release of the fantastic Lego Movie, expectations for the movie based tie-in game were high. So far all Lego games had been tied to another franchise, so having the game be set in a world that was made to already be Lego was a scary thought. Would the game be able to deliver the same amount of entertainment and comedy as the film while also providing hours of addictive gameplay? Well… Read more

I got the chance to visit Namco Bandai recently to get our hands on Dark Souls II. And after playing the first three hours, I can safely say that it’s just as punishing and rewarding as it’s predecessor, and I rather loved it. Read more

Words By Milo Fisher

Point-and-click games were massive in the past, with such classics as Monkey Island and Grim Fandango being highlights to the genre (for me anyway). Sadly the genre has seemed to have died out in recent years in favor of more action packed titles. Fear not, for now things have changed! Tim Shaffer, the head of Double Fine studios and one of the minds behind both Monkey Island and Grim Fandango, has finally released the Kickstarter funded Point-and-click beauty that is Broken Age.

Here’s Something Awesome: The Banner Saga

Gamers love to imagine what would happen if multiple games were combined together, to picture a game that takes all the best elements of games they love and mix them to create something incredible. Sadly, most gamers are left to dream for a game that captures what features they desire, but not for me, as The Banner Saga manages to capture everything I love in a masterfully crafted adventure.

Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs preview

We live in a world that loves to be scared. Horror movies come out in floods every year and are met with droves of people seeking the thrill of fear. Unfortunately the Horror genre has become saturated over the past few years with people confusing blood and gore with actual fear. It’s not just movies though. Franchises such as Resident Evil have implemented so many new elements into their games it could be easily passed off as an action game rather than its original survival horror badge it still prides itself on. Back in 2010 however, there was a glimmer of hope. Something that should be credited for bringing the Let’s Play videos that now fill every corner of YouTube into fashion. Something that brought many to the attention of a Swedish man with an iconic scream. Something that reminded us that it is the fear of the unknown, the fear of the supernatural, the fear of being completely useless that is actual horror. Frictional Games, the folks behind the Penumbra franchise, delivered this glimmer of horrific hope, Amnesia: The Dark Descent. A game that garnered critical acclaim and horrified players worldwide. Now three years later, developer thechineseroom have teamed up with Frictional Games to truly test how hard we will hit the floor screaming. This is Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs. That title is enough to get us hooked. Drool on the keyboard worthy. Read more
