Review: Sudden Strike 4

Sudden Strike 4 is a high consequence RTS game with a lot of heavy decisions to make, but at the end of the day is there any replay value? That is the question I kept asking myself while playing through the recently released game's...

Review: Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice

Most people remember Ninja Theory due to their mishandled Devil May Cry remake/reboot/prequel thing. While I didn't play it, the general consensus seemed to be that the game featured satisfactory gameplay layered over an awful story....

Review: Absolver

"What For Honor should have been." This is the thought that keeps going through my mind while playing Absolver, the new fighting game from Paris based studio, Sloclap. And that comparison isn’t meant to take away from Absolver at all in...

Review: Crashday Redline Edition

Review: Horizon: Zero Dawn

Fighting robot dinosaurs with a bow and arrow. That’s honestly the extent of my knowledge of Horizon: Zero Dawn going into the game when I first started it up on my PS4. I knew there was hype surrounding the game, but I never looked into...

Review: Persona 5

Alarms blare as a spotlight follows a slick ashen black coat disappearing into darkness. Demons in the guise of guards give chase, hiding their true grotesque form behind a mask. Their target, a young man, wears a cocky smile on his face...
