Styx: Master of Shadows is a new fantasy based stealth game developed by Cyanide Studios for Microsoft Windows, Playstation 4 and Xbox One, the game takes place in the universe of ‘Of Orcs and Men’ (the game’s sequel) and inside the ominous Tower of Akenash. Players take control of the first goblin, Styx, as he tries to steal the heart of The World Tree in order to earn himself a small fortune and in the hopes of discovering his origins as the first goblin.

Call of Duty Advanced Warfare Review

The Legend of Korra: The Video Game Review

The-Legend-of-Korra-post-3_zpsea4250de

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.

The Last Tinker: City of Colours Review

Words by Milo Fisher

An action platformer with so much love and care put into its creation, it’s hard not to adore.

Cloudbuilt Review

Words by Milo Fisher

Cloudbuilt, a game about parkour free-running above the clouds, aims to be the next big speed running game for the PC market. While it has some stand out mechanics, it’s the odd choices that keep it from being the next big thing.

Smite Review

Words by Milo Fisher

Smite, the new MOBA from Hi-Rez Studios, dares to be different. With a chance of perspective and fast paced gameplay, Smite manages to separate itself from the competition and be one of the best free-to-play games out there.

There aren’t enough games out there that are just bonkers. Octodad: Dadliest Catch says goodbye to logic and normality to make a hilarious and wonderfully enjoyable adventure.

Here’s Something Scary: Outlast

Words by Milo Fisher

“No! nonononononono! S**T NOOOOOOO!” This made up the majority of my playtime with Outlast on the PS4, a survival horror game so creepy that I struggled to press forward even with the lights on. Scaredy-cats beware, this is one spooky ride.

The Lego Movie Game Review

Lego movie

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…

Jazzpunk Review

jpLogo770

Words by Milo Fisher

These recent years it seems video games are getting too serious. There became so many colourless shooters and Minecraft clones that I wondered if there was any hope in finding some originality in the world. Enter Jazzpunk, the self aware spy comedy adventure that makes me happy to be a gamer.

Dark Souls II Preview

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.

Here’s Something Awesome: Broken Age

BA_Logo_Color

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: Dungeon of the Endless

Dungeon-of-the-Endless-Logo-Art

Words By Milo Fisher

Rouge-likes are all the rage these days, with more and more being released every week it’s becoming harder to find the ones that do something different and take risks. Enter Dungeon of the Endless, an up and coming randomly generated dungeon crawler that makes opening every door a battle of life and death, and it’s rather cracking.

Here’s Something Awesome: The Banner Saga

The-Banner-Saga-08

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.

Steamworld Dig Review

steam-world-dig-010

Way back in the day, there was an Xbox 360 indie title called Miner Dig Deep, it was a nice relaxing game all about sitting back and working away at a mine. Steamworld Dig is just like Miner Dig Deep, except it has robots, monsters, puzzles, and rocket punches. Oh yes, it has sweet, sweet rocket punches.

State of Decay review

state-of-decay-logo

State of Decay is the first game by studio Undead Labs. While the game has a few hiccups here and there, State of Decay is the fantastic zombie game we’ve all been waiting for.

Contrast review

Contrast-Package-Art

Contrast is an incredibly creative game with so much potential. But a lack of focus and constant amount of bugs keep this game from being something truly magical.

Here’s Something Awesome: Megabyte Punch

indieDB1024

A game where Medabots meets Super Smash Bros. Oh my yes.

Payday 2 Review

payday2_2

Payday 2 is the newest game from Overkill studios. It’s a fast paced, action packed co op heist game, and one of the best co op adventures we’ve played in ages.

Here’s Something Awesome: Mercenary Kings

Mercenary Kings is the new gun slinging game from Tribute Games. It follows a Rambo-esc ‘King’ or a Sonya Blade looking ‘Queen’ as they take on missions in order to stop the evil CLAW gang and SAVE THE WORLD!

Saints Row IV review – Hail to the Chief

Saints-Row-iv

Trying to describe Saints Row 4 is like trying to describe insanity itself, because for all intents and purposes, that’s what it is. Imagine a world where anything you want to do is possible, and anything you don’t want to do is also possible. Now take that world, toss it in a blender, add some bananas (K?), a few slices of chaos, and a dash of nud-oops, all of the nudity-, sit back and hit frappé. Once this glorious concoction of gleeful violence, murder, and mayhem settles, toss in some elements of The Matrix, any superhero comic/movie, Crackdown, and Prototype, and you’ve got yourself the newest Saints Row game.

Spelunky PC video review

Spelunky

Spelunky was recently released on PC. After playing for hours on end, Milo has lovingly put his impressions of the game into a nice little video for all to enjoy.

Deadpool Review

Deadpool

Deadpool has been growing in popularity over the internet in recent years. So much so that High Moon studios, the guys behind the new transformers games, have decided to give Deadpool his own game.

‘DARK’ 2 hours in review. Pro-tip: Don’t buy.

img_8425_dark-video-game-trailer-gdc-2013

Can’t do it. I cannot complete this game. If there was a way to remove the 2 hours I spent with this game from my head, I would do it in a heartbeat. The voice acting is unbelievably bad with zero emotion. If you woke up as a vampire, wouldn’t you be freaking out a bit? Not Eric Bane. One of the most flat and shallow characters in this generation of gaming, it’s almost cringe worthy to know there will be some sort on monotone narration from him about everything. And I mean everything. “The throbbing in my head is pounding in my temples.” Wow, look at that thrilling dialogue.

Borderlands 2 ”Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep’ DLC review

Tiny Tina

Borderlands is the epitome of insane fun, insane action, and just plain insanity. And nothing shows that more than the latest DLC release of Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep. The craziest character in any video game ever, now has you at the mercy of her twisted, freaky mind. Roll for initiative suckas!

Remember Me review

Remember me title

If there is one thing that affects us most as human beings, it is our memories. We reflect on the good ones when we are down, and we rely on the bad ones to teach us how to not make the same mistakes as the past. I’m sure though, that every single person out there has a day in their past where they wish they could remember it differently, or just escape the pain of a memory so traumatic it can shut you down. That is the premise of Remember Me.

Thunder Wolves Review

tw0

There was a time where games only had to be fun. No need for ultra high graphics options, realistic physics or even over-the-top models. Think about Choplifter, Silkworm or Desert Strike. Thunder Wolves brings you back, right there. In the 90′s.

Metro: Last Light review

MetroLastLight

When the echoes of the past have you in their grip, clawing your way out seems to be the only option. Shadows that are illuminated by lighting bolts don’t just seem to move, they do move. Ghostly images of past lives litter the world and you sense, if not outright feel, their chilled hands clinging to you in search of warmth. These are just a few of the haunting examples you will stumble across in Metro: Last Light. Even though it’s a direct sequel of Metro 2033, Last Light stands as it’s own game.
