Curse of Nordic Cove Review

The Curse of Nordic Cove is an unabashed indie game. The graphics are primitive, the controls are frustrating, it is filled with “What the hell am I supposed to do NOW?” moments, and much of the time the damned game engine just plain doesn't work. The list of things wrong with this game is nigh-endless, but it still deserves a closer look because the development team was clearly dedicated to creating something new and different.

Might & Magic Heroes VI SoD Review

Return to Ashan in Shades of Darkness, a new expansion to the hugely popular Might & Magic Heroes VI. With over a dozen new units and a conservative announced guess of 20 hours of new gameplay (We all know we'll play it more than that), Shades of Darkness is an adventure designed to be a little darker than the game it is based upon. With that darker tone comes an increased difficulty, a difficulty that doesn't always feel like it's been planned out. Alongside that, a myriad of bugs will work against you as well. Is this enough to stop you from playing?

Saints Row 2 Review

On March 15th 2013, Saints Row IV was officially announced. Rewind to 2006, a little known game called Saints Row was hitting the shelves for the very first time. Since the game was released solely on the Xbox, I sadly couldn’t buy it; as I only had a PlayStation 2. So imagine my joy when it was announced that the sequel was to be released on both the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3. Many assumed that the original Saints Row would be another wannabe Grand Theft Auto, much like other sandbox games such as True Crime Streets of L.A. and The Getaway; all vying ...

Amiga Forever 2013 Review

After downloading my copy of Amiga Forever, I came across a friend who was so excited for this emulator that he'd changed his status to "Amiga Forever" on Skype. What I'd taken as a simple emulator (with a little hype behind it) was actually something that others had supported for years (since 1997), people who had awaited the official release over modern AAA titles. What was it about this pack that got these people so excited? What can Amiga Forever do that other such emulators fail to?

Fire and Forget Review

Alas, had I played Fire & Forget on a mobile device, my opinion might have been different as I can see how it would appeal to mobile and casual gamers. Views and opinions are strictly based on the PC version of the game. One of the few things that Fire and Forget: Final Assault does right is that it stays true to it’s title; after a few shots, you’ll forget all about it. While similar arcade shooters might have intrigued audiences in the 80’s, this modern sequel of Fire and Forget does very little justice to a once thriving genre.

Rise of the Triad coming soon to digital stores, 1995/2013 cover comparison

The comparison between the covers of Rise of the Triad Dark War and Rise of the Traid 2013 are incredibly similar, but serve as an interesting marker on how gaming has changed over the last twenty years. Whether you're looking at the difference between art styles - that the '95 one was a replacement for actual in-game graphics - or if it's as simple as the zip on Thi's top being in a sightly higher position on the 2013 version of the cover. Either way, the reboot of the shareware classic is well on its way.

The Incredible Adv. of Van Helsing Review

In 2004 Hugh Jackman made a movie called Van Helsing where he fights vampires and werewolves. There was a tie-in game based on it, but neither the game or the movie were worth remembering nine years later. The new indie game The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing has no official relation to that movie, but it does use the film’s clever idea of re-imagining the character of Van Helsing as a tough monster-hunter in a world overrun by gothic horrors. It combines that premise with the ever-popular “It’s like Diablo” genre of games for a bloody and ...

Bad Bots Review

Another day, another indie side-scrolling shooter. They seem to be a dime a dozen currently, but that's OK since they serve a purpose – fast entertainment on the cheap. Point 5 Projects' Bad Bots is another 2D shooter that recently hit the scene. Like many games of its ilk, it tries to recapture old-school aesthetics by providing gamers with challenging arcade action. Bad Bots accomplishes this, but in a way that feels incomplete.
