It’s 2022 and Counter Strike: GO is Still Hot

It’s 2022, and you would think that with the plethora of amazing online games that have released in the last few years, that older titles like Counter Strike: GO might have fallen to the wayside. Released back in August of 2012 – that’s almost a decade ago, friends – Counter Strike: GO immediately resonated with fans, and quickly became one of the most popular eSports games on the planet. And that really hasn’t changed, although ...

Silt is an Interesting Experience

If you've played Limbo, you might already have an idea of what to expect when you load up Silt for the first time. It has a similarly eerie feel, beautiful black and white graphics, and a multitude of puzzles that need to be solved. But can Silt recreate the amazing feel you got when playing Limbo? Let's take a look!

Citadels Board Game Review

Board game remakes and reprints are on the rise, and Citadels is one of those titles that has received a glossy coat of paint, included all previous expansions, and has been relaunched for public consumption. As someone who owned the original in that tiny box, it's nice to have a complete set of the game to enjoy, and I think it's a worthwhile upgrade to make.

Game Announcement Timing is Killing Titles

This morning, rumors began to swirl around the brand new Fable game being developed by Playground Games. The rumor is that because of an inability to work with the current engine, the development team has had to scale back the quality of the game. Rumors are just that, rumors.

Two Point Campus Previews Have Dropped

There are a handful of games I am looking forward to in 2022, but number one on my list might shock a few people. Seeing as I hold Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle in my top 5 Switch games of all of time, you would expect that, should it launch this year, Spark of Hope will be my number one! Nope, it's actually a simulation game called Two Point Campus, and it's something I cannot wait for!

Does Donkey Kong Make an Appearance This Summer?

With E3 once again shelved for 2022, we can assume that Nintendo will still release some type of Nintendo Direct between now and August. With big games coming this summer, the next Direct will be looking at games coming in the future. We likely will get an extended look at Breath of the Wild 2, Spatoon 3, and other titles. But one game I think Nintendo fans NEED to see is something within the Donkey Kong universe.

Parkasaurus is Wildly Fun

Over the years, classic Tycoon games have evolved into deep, sometimes daunting experiences that don't necessarily capture the joy and simplicity of the early days. While I loved the original Roller Coaster Tycoon, Roller Coaster Tycoon 2, and Zoo Tycoon games on PC, the moment that Zoo Tycoon was released on Xbox, Planet Zoo on PC, and Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 and future titles across multiple platforms, I was disinterested in the franchise. Parkasaurus is ...

Two New Short Trailers for Mario Strikers: Battle League

Nintendo doesn't shy away from quietly dropping new trailers for upcoming games, and although the two posted yesterday combine for less than one minute of air time, they are still a welcome sight for those looking forward to the first Mario Strikers game in a very long time. With the game just a few weeks away, it's time to take a deeper - and yet still brief - dive into more things the game will offer!

Why Diamond Dynasty is Great, but not for Everyone

Whenever a new sports game drops in the Roffel household, I can guarantee you that one mode always gets played more than others. In NHL, it will be Hockey Ultimate Team, and in FIFA (now EA FC) it will always be Football Ultimate Team. So, when PlayStation Canada sent over a copy of MLB The Show 22, I figured Diamond Dynasty would be my go-to mode. And it was, for a bit.
