Home Sweet Home Review

Home Sweet Home is a first-person indie-horror game inspired by Thai myths and beliefs that was recently released on PS4 and Xbox One from Thai developer Yggdrazil. Yggdrazil is not known for game creation, as it boasts projects in VFX, Animation, Art Design and Online-Editing categories, with very little focus on games. For a company with such a diverse portfolio, it would be an understatement to say I was surprised with the overall quality of Home Sweet Home.

Shadows: Awakening Review

Released just over a month ago, Shadows: Awakening is an isometric dungeon-crawler RPG with a rich storyline and intriguing game mechanics. Brought to us by Slovakian developer Games Farm, Awakening is the second installment in the Heretic Kingdoms saga. If you’re suddenly worried that you missed the first game, don’t be – this game plays great standalone and you will do just fine treating this as a solo game. For gamers who have dabbled in franchises like Diablo or Path of Exile but didn’t stick around because of the repetitive grind, lack of puzzles and ...

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Review

When Assassin’s Creed Origins launched last year it became quickly apparent that the major changes to the franchise propelled that release to my favourite Assassin’s Creed game to date, and it was a sentiment shared by many. One year later, and we have been promised another grand adventure, built on similar changes made to Origins. But with only a year between releases, does this release take a step back? Let’s dive in!

Forza Horizon 4 Review

Forza Horizon 4 is much more of the same, and while there aren't any great leaps or improvements over Forza Horizon 3, a brand new setting, with new cars and new objectives keeps the game fresh enough for long time fans, while retaining that Horizon, open world driving charm. Can the open world racing game that hasn't changed much across four releases really keep players coming back? Let's take a look.

Valkyria Chronicles 4 Review

As a novice to the Valkyria Chronicles franchise, I wasn't sure what to expect when booting up my first experience. From friends in the industry, the original Valkyria Chronicles was very good, followed up by some lackluster - and even downright terrible - releases and rereleases, across almost all platforms. When my colleague Daniel Fugate reviewed the demo on Nintendo Switch, my interest was peaked, and I decided to take the plunge, thanks to our good friends at SEGA. How good is Valkyria Chronicles 4, and can you jump in without playing the original games ...

NHL 19 Review

Despite being a Canadian, and despite loving the sport of hockey, I took a break from the annual NHL EA Sports release for the 2018 iteration, and during a year heavy with impressive titles from developers across the industry, it didn't actually miss it that much. When EA Sports came to Toronto a few weeks ago, and a few of my colleagues were able to attend, they couldn't stop raving about the improvements to NHL 19, so we reached out and thanks to EA Sports, received a copy to review!

The advancements from the 2013 to the 2015 release…

PES 2019 Review

Although I now risk sounding like a broken record, with another year of PES soccer upon us, wr have yet another year to talk about how the soccer mechanics outshine the competition, but how through game still lacks the modes and licences of "the other guy." It's become a cycle to be sure, as felt PES 17 and PES 18 both outshined FIFA on the field, while struggling off it. While I hoped 19 might be the breakout year for PES, I was unfortunately wrong, but I'm not sure it's Konami's fault.

Strange Brigade Review

Rebllion is know for creating some over the top gaming mechanics - trust us, there is nothing more satisfying then a headshot in the Sniper Elite series - but has often opted to create serious missions with unique gameplay elements. Enter Strange Brigade, with lots of over the top mechanics; however, the realism of World Wars has been replaced with the craziness of treasure hunting, complete with undead, scarabs, and much more. Can Rebellion swap out serious story telling for an over the top, unbelievable adventure? Let's take a look!
