Call of the Sea Review

Puzzles! Romance! Adventure! If Call of the Sea was a story from the 1930s, its advertising would speak entirely in exclamation points – and it’d almost live up to them. It’s filled with brainteasers designed to fairly but frequently trip you up, all on one of the most beautiful islands in gaming. It boasts next-gen features like raytracing, but doesn’t feel the need to overdo them or stray into the dangerous territory of gimmicky. The story is as deep or…

Halo 4 PC Review

Halo 4 is the first instalment in the legendary FPS series to be developed by 343 Industries and completes the now six-game-strong Master Chief Collection. Is it really the red-headed franchise stepchild some claim, or simply a misunderstood gem? Time to squeeze into that snug power armour and find out.

Torchlight III feat

Torchlight III Review

The newest title in the blockbuster ARPG franchise, Torchlight III aims to continue the outstanding legacy of its predecessors. When the first Torchlight game was released back in 2009, it gained infamy for being an accessible and affordable alternative, especially for casual gamers, the more in-depth top-down ARPG titles such as Diablo. With a much brighter aesthetic and relatively light-hearted lore, Torchlight carved out a very real section of the ARPG looter genre. Already enjoying one strong sequel in Torchlight II, all eyes have turned to the third ...

ScourgeBringer Review (Xbox One)

There’s no sign of the roguelike rush stopping any time soon, and ScourgeBringer is the latest to join the often-punishing genre.  A well made game that nails its gameplay execution, ScourgeBringer is a fun ride that will remind you of a game with tight controls from the NES or SNES era. There’s a story to ScourgeBringer, but it’s ancillary to the experience.  From the time you first load up the game, you’ll be playing through your first run in a…

Hammerting Review

Digging its way into Steam Early Access tomorrow is Hammerting, a dwarven mining sim from Warpzone Studios that combines colony management, base creation, mountain exploration and the story of a great war for the overworld. Balance will be key as you recruit more dwarves to assist your operations, all while stockpiling your mountain treasure hoard and complete tasks sent from your armies above - all while risking the perils below. While there is seemingly no cap on the market for sim games, it has become quite difficult to distinguish yourself among the ...

Pumpkin Jack Review

We are knee-deep in the spooky season, which I always find myself playing spooky games throughout, this year was delighted to find a trick not treat in my goodie bag in Pumpkin Jack. Which is a 3D platformer much in the same style as the cult classic MedEvil with a bit of a modern flair. The peaceful Boredom Kingdom, with its happy citizens, monotonous calm… and adorable little bunnies, has sent the Devil himself into a flying rage! With dreams…

Age of Empires 3: Definitive Edition Review

Age of Empires has been a part of my life since the original launch, and when you count of the hours played across all the titles, it's easily my most played franchise on PC, by a long shot. In the build up to Age of Empires 4, the development team has been churning out Definitive Edition versions of the past numbered games in the series - Age of Empires, Age of Empires 2, and now Age of Empires 3. Although Age of Empires 3 is the least impressive upgrade of the three - likely due to it being newer, and therefore, required less - there is still a ton of fun ...

Flashback: Mafia 2

In the history of the video game industry, there were plenty of games that completely changed this field. Half-Life, The Last of Us, God of War, Red Dead Redemption, GTA: San Andreas are only a slew of games that played a major role in restructuring the concept of a video game. The Mafia franchise indeed is worthy to be called among these games. The plot, the environment where the game takes place is fantastic. So let’s go ahead with the…
