Annunaki: Dawn of the Gods Components Overview and Impressions

4x Board Games can be a bit much to consume, even if you are a hardcore board game player. Most have hundreds of pieces that you’ll need to play the game, complicated boards, and a rulebook as thick as a Harry Potter novel. Annunaki breaks a few of these molds in its production and gameplay, and provides a fairly streamlined 4x game experience. Let’s take a look at what you get in the box, and whether the components are worth…

Kingdom Hearts On Steam is Massive

I woke up this morning to perhaps the most important low-key video game news of the year. The Kingdom Hearts series is finally hitting Steam. Those not in the know might shrug their shoulders at this news. There’s a good chance that most people in the know won’t give a damn. A hodge-podge of PS2, PS4, PSP and 3DS games reaching an app on a platform they were already available on? Yawn, right? Wrong. This signals a change in priorities…

Ghost of Tsushima PC Port: A Seamless Samurai Experience or a Haunted Release?

Ghost of Tsushima, originally a PlayStation 4 exclusive title, made waves upon its release in 2020, captivating players with its breathtaking visuals, immersive world, and engaging combat mechanics. However, for PC gamers eager to delve into the world of feudal Japan, the arrival of the Ghost of Tsushima PC port was both highly anticipated and met with cautious optimism. Now, with its new release live, the port has promised enhanced performance and visuals. Did it deliver on these expectations, or…

MONSTROLICIOUS Board Game Review

Every now and then, I absolutely love playing a game that is so simplistic, I feel like very little thought is required to play. Ultimately, that isn’t the case with Monstrolicious because, well, if you don’t think you don’t win! And I learned that the hard way playing against my 10 year old son Lochlan. This game is so simplistic you might mistake it for a straight kids game, but I’ve enjoyed playing this with a wide variety of people,…

Why Perspectives is my Favorite Detective Board Game

I have to start this article by issuing an apology to Asmodee Canada – many months ago, Asmodee sent over a box of games to review, and somehow Perspectives landed on a shelf it wasn’t supposed to be on, and we missed reviewing it all together. I also have to apologize to myself, because I could have been playing one of the best detective board games currently available, but instead it was sitting on a shelf hidden among the 100s…

Ever wanted to know what it would feel like to have some of our favorite larger titled games, like Super Mario or Kirby in a Metroidvania setting? I know that I have many times. So, what if I told you that I just played a game that was basically Kirby and Ender Lilies having a baby? Or should I say, they bio-morphed?

9.0 A Sci-Fi, 2D Platformer, Shooter,...

 

Developed by Evan Tor Games and published by JanduSoft, this is a Sci-Fi mystery shooter that everyone has to try. Rebel Transmute is the Metroid of our year. It is a take on a classic Metroidvania with a kick of colors and extreme exploration. While it is revolutionized, I think that the graphics and audio really kicks us off back into the feel of the 90s, giving both old and new gamers something to enjoy. The ...

Robin Hood Sherwood Builders is a survival, base-building, crafting game developed by MeanAstronauts and published by Playway S.A.

The amount of crafting and building that is needed in this game takes up most of the gameplay, so if you’re not into that, then step ...

You may have heard that Demon’s Souls is pretty tough. That’s not entirely accurate. The truth is that Demon’s Souls is very, very simple. Everything about it is signposted.

And now, with the arrival of the remake on PS5, you have over ...

 

8.0 Walking Dead Season 2

 

Last year, Telltale elevated point and click games to a new level with their first season of the award-winning The Walking Dead. Creating a follow-up to that fantastic set of titles was a difficult task for Telltale, and they mostly succeeded. While there are moments of brilliance, season two doesn’t reach the level of excellence that season one was able to achieve.

 

6.5 NASCAR ’14

 

Racing games can generally be played in a variety of ways. While those that love Gran Turismo the most might play it as a simulator, it's just as easy to experience it as some approximation of Mario Kart, crashing into other vehicles on long bends or swinging onto the grass when necessary. NASCAR '14 is all about tight lines and clever driving, a fact that makes it both very playable and undoubtedly niche.

 

9.0 Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster

 

Cybernet was a video game focussed TV show here in the UK back when the PS2 launched. When they weren't showing and reshowing the opening of Metal Gear Solid 2, they were showing and reshowing clips from Final Fantasy X. Look at the graphics! Look at the characters! And, oh, they've got voices as well!

6.5 Killer is Dead

 

Killer is Dead is a hard game to pin down. You play as an executioner for a government agency that hunts out murderers for the general public. It plays a little like something from Platinum, a third-person action game with an anime flair. That flair runs deeper than just the visual style though, and a unique fantastical twist makes it all the more unusual. Expect blood, whimsy, sex, adventure and intrigue.

Stellar Blade, the latest exclusive to hit the PS5, is a game of contrasts.

7.5 Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel

 

The biggest change to the Borderlands formula in Pre-Sequel - aside from the game's setting, which affects gameplay and aesthetics in a number of ways - are the game's character classes, all based on characters previously seen in the series. These new classes will still serve familiar roles on the battlefield

This phone is definitely not for the common ...

Revenant Saga is rpg developer KEMCO's newest game for the Wii U. I played this game and now I can tell you all about it! Is Revenant Saga a good rpg?

 

6.5 Animal Gods

 

Wii U indie games are starting to become a rare thing. Whenever a new Wii U game comes out, I find myself smiling and hoping that its a good game. Anmal Gods for Wii U came out last week. I have been playing it for review and I'm finally ready to share with what I thought of the game.

 

8.5 Back to Bed

 

One of the best things about Indies is that they are not afraid of being weird. Indies generally take more chances than third party developers and create games that are unique and interesting. Not all of these unique and interesting games are good, but I love how Indies are willing to experiment. Take, for instance, Back to Bed for Wii U. You would not see a third party, maybe not even a first party developer, ...

 

8.0 Plantera

 

If Harvest Moon and a cute 2D tower defense game had a love child, it might look like Plantera for the Wii U and 3DS eshops. Build a garden, add animals, and defend that garden like crazy from outside threats! Plantera sounds like it might be a good game for simulation and tower defense fans…but is it? The Wii U and 3DS versions of Plantera have some differences but the basic gameplay is the same between ...

 
 

4.0 Z-Run

 

To many people, the Playstation Vita is a system known best for only its Indies and its ports. When I saw the trailer for Vita Indie game Z-Run, I was shocked to find out it wasn't a port from a mobile game. With its poor visuals, simple Temple Run style gameplay and lack of depth, I was sure that Z-Run was a zombie re-skin of some dime-a-dozen endless runner, build for mobile technology and quickly ported to ...

 

8.5 Danganronpa Trigger Happy Havoc

 

Danganronpa Trigger Happy Havoc is a zany experience filled with boundless creativity. Developed by Spike Chunsoft (the studio responsible for similar games in the Zero Escape series), and originally released for the PSP all the way back in 2010, Danganronpa has spawned an anime and manga over in Japan before its port to the Vita this year; and it’s easy to see why.

 

8.0 Surge Deluxe

 

The match 3 puzzle genre has been lacking innovation as of late. Thankfully, Futurlab has an extraordinary habit of changing up the ‘norm’ and Surge Deluxe is certainly no exception!!

 

9.0 Tearaway

 

Tearaway is, simply put, a creative gem. It’s a game solely created to showcase the power of Vita’s hardware, and just how pleasant of an experience a videogame can be.

 

8.0 Street Fighter X Tekken

 

Street Fighter X Tekken was kind of a big deal when it was first announced, and perhaps even helped the Mortal Kombat remake to herald in a new wave of fighting titles. Along with its companion title, the long presumed dead Tekken X Street Fighter, Street Fighter X Tekken was going to combine two of the biggest names in fighting, dozens of the most recognisable characters, all within a blended style that meant ...

 

9.5 Persona 4 Golden

 

Atlus has always been known to deliver niche JRPG experiences; games that don’t sell well but are critical darlings. They have plenty of exceptional titles under their belt such as Catherine and Shin Megami Tensei IV, but Persona 4 is quite possibly their finest work yet. The fourth entry in the Persona series originally made its debut on the PS2 back in 2008. The game was met with immense critical reception, so ...

 
 

9.0 Yo-Kai Watch 3

 

Although the Yo-Kai Watch franchise is gaining some traction in the West - more so in Europe and less so in the United States and Canada - there are still many gamers and anime fans out there who know little, if anything, about the franchise itself. To them, the name Jibanyan and Whisper mean nothing, and if you mention the town of Springdale, most people are likely to ask, "Do you mean Springfield, like in the ...

 

9.0 Mario and Luigi: Bowser’s I...

 

In my preview for Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser's Jr's Journey I mentioned that I had never played Bowser's Inside Story before. So when it came time to do my review, I decided to not compare the game to the original. In fact, I decided to not compare the game to previous Mario & Luigi games at all. Basically I wanted to ask: Is Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr's Journey a good game(s)?

 

8.0 WarioWare Gold

 

I’ve been playing video games for a few decades now, and I’m ashamed to admit that I’ve never played a WarioWare game in my life. When the game launched a few weeks ago, I began watching video of our good friend Abdallah Smash, and instantly thought, “That looks like a lot of fun.” Well, now I have played it; what did I think? Let’s dive in!

 

9.5 Dragon Lapis

 

I’ve been enjoying Dragon Lapis for the 3DS a lot. Check out my preview of the game here. And now its time for my review of Dragon Lapis. Is this a 3DS rpg that you’ll want to download? I like how Dragon Lapis starts with a cutscene that gives us background into its world. As the game continues, we get a lot more world building and interesting plot twists. All of the characters in this game are ...

 

8.0 Detective Pikachu

 

Even if you are not a long time fan of the Pokémon franchise, there is one thing you probably do know: Pokémon don’t talk to humans and humans don’t talk to Pokémon. Sure, based on emotions of a Pokémon - or even their actions - a good trainer can determine what a Pokémon is thinking or feeling; but to actually talk to one? That is basically unheard of. So when we learned about the popular Japanese Detective ...

 

7.0 Machine Knight

 

There are not too many developers releasing 3DS eshop games at anymore. Most of the developers have switched over to the Switch. One of the developers that it is still putting out games for the 3DS is KEMCO. Their newest game for the system is called Machine Knight. It is a jrpg. What do I think of it? Read on to find out!

7 Cartel Tycoon

 

Cartel Tycoon, now available on Xbox Series X/S, invites players on a morally dubious yet undeniably captivating journey to the top of the drug cartel hierarchy. Channeling the gritty essence of 80s and 90s narco culture, this management sim offers a complex and often challenging experience. While the subject matter may raise ethical concerns, Cartel Tycoon injects a unique twist into the genre, but with some ...
