This War of Mine Review: Fuck the War!

This War of Mine Review: Fuck the War!

  This War of Mine starts slowly. Closer to The Sims than the Siege of Sarajevo, one directs several (the exact number is procedurally generated) healthy, happy displaced people squatting in a disused house decrepit and strewn with rubble. The squatters clear away the rubble and ransack the disused house. […] Read more »

Lone Survivor: Directors Cut (WiiU) Review

Alone in a dingy run down flat, at the top of an aging, poorly designed edifice. The electricity was shut off days ago. The cooker’s bust and there’s a legion of flesh eating mutants roaming the halls waiting to consume your flesh and maybe even desecrate your corpse. Each day […] Read more »

Back to Bed Review: Not A Moment Too Soon

To me a cup of coffee is better than a creaky bed, so it’s probably ironic that I was the one that reviewed this game [Not ironic, but definitely tragic – ed]. I’m a guy that, for some reason, loves to stay up all night being active and doing things […] Read more »

The Swapper Review: Where is My Mind?

Great science fiction is by its very nature a work of philosophical discourse and The Swapper is no different, venturing into the murky waters of metaphysical discourse by pitting a hero whose actions are governed by the Aristotelian principles of matter and form against an unmoving enemy that embodies the […] Read more »

The original Gravity Crash came out in 2009 for the PS3 and was subsequently ported to the PSP in 2010. Five years since its initial release, the retro inspired side scrolling shooting makes its way to the Vita with a myriad of additional features that make Gravity Crash Ultra not […] Read more »
