A Knight's Quest feat

A Knight’s Quest Review

Released just over a week ago by developer Sky9 Games, A Knight’s Quest is the latest Zelda-clone to hit the markets. With such a revered franchise to make obvious comparisons to, and plenty of other clones to compete with, it is no easy task to throw one’s self into the arena of a Zelda-clone platformer. Will A Knight’s Tale be able to carve out a style of its own, or will it drown in the sea of similar titles? Let’s take a look and find out!

Stranded Sails Review

Farming simulation type games are hitting the Nintendo Switch hard and fast, but thankfully each is taking on a different approach than the others. While Story of Seasons take a methodical approach to farming and interacting with the world around you, Stardew Valley takes a very economical approach to the genre. Enter Stranded Sails, which focuses on the efforts of a shipwrecked crew who is trying to survive, and find a way of, a deserted island. And for a game…

Yooka Laylee and the Impossible Lair Review

When Playtonic revealed and released the Banjo-Kazooie-esque 3D platform title Yooka-Laylee a few years ago, fans of that game style were understandably uber enthusiastic about the games release. Ultimately, the game delivered the experience that everyone remember back on the Nintendo 64, for food and for bad. With one release in the franchise out of the way, Playtonic has flexed their creative muscles on a brand new, and extremely different type of game in Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair. Corporate…

Killer Queen Black Review

Killer Queen Black is on Nintendo Switch! For those unacquainted with this indie arcade title, allow me to get into the details of what this game is all about, namely the competitive multiplayer madness, combined with the fact that you can take the game on the go with handheld mode, it makes it much more enjoyable! Judging from the looks of everything on screen here, there’s a lot that goes on in a match!  Don’t worry, I’ll explain – so…

LEGO Jurassic World Review

LEGO Jurassic World combines everything I liked about LEGO video games and largely removes the only thing I really hated: the combat. With the focus on combat gone, Travelers Tales has given more time to environmental destruction, helpful hints for those young LEGO fans, and more puzzles to complete. Oh yes, and dinosaurs. The games and levels mimic the movies they are trying to recreate very closely, but of course, they add their own unique LEGO humor. Ever since the…

Divinity Original Sin II Review

Divinity Original Sin 2 is one of the better top-down RPG experiences I’ve ever played, but unless you have a desire to log over a 100 hours into it, you might want to skip this one. If you want fantastic value for your money, Divinity Original Sin 2 is what you want to invest in! Like with the first game, the second mold the characters through the quests – more depth is worked into the everyday questing than is done…

Daemon X Machina feat

Daemon X Machina Review

Daemon X Machina, the mech-shooter developed by MARVELOUS!, is set to release on Nintendo Switch this Friday, September 13th. Daemon X Machina puts you in the driver’s seat of the awesome battle-mechs called ‘Arsenals’ – which, if we’re being honest, look like something straight out of the Gundam universe – and pits you against the overwhelming number of AI controlled tanks and other vehicles that you must prevent from taking over the world. While not the most original storyline, any robot fighting game is worth taking a closer look it. Let’s dive right in!
