9.5 Horizon Zero Dawn PC Complete Edi...

 

Originally released for PS4 in 2017, Horizon Zero Dawn is a blockbuster action RPG developed by Guerrilla Games. This Friday, August 7th, Horizon Zero Dawn PC Complete Edition will release and will be the first chance PC gamers will get to experience this truly exceptional game. It is a fairly rare occurrence for successful games that were previously PlayStation exclusives to make their way over to PC, and we ...

 

7.0 Skater XL

 

Fingerboarding, along with having really, really good Pokemon, was one of the main ways of proving you were cool when I was in school. I remember it well – wearing a leather jacket and awesome sunglasses, armed with a stick used to beat off the girls, I’d flick my way through the schoolyard with my tiny skateboard. It wasn’t the size though, dear reader, it was what you did with it, and that ...

 

8.0 Carrion

 

Videogames are often about defeating the big scary monster that’s tormenting the humans, but if you’ve ever wanted to flip the script and be that scary monster, Carrion is for you.  The folks over at Phobia Game Studio have put together a metroidvania style game that makes you feel powerful, clever, and has some of the most fluid movement of any game this year. Carrion puts you in the role of an ...

 

9.0 Megaquarium: Freshwater Frenzy DL...

 

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water - Megaquarium's Freshwater Frenzy DLC is ready to take a serious bite out of your free time! Released in Fall 2018, Megaquarium is a wonderfully delightful sim/management game where the player builds their dream aquarium, while managing their food, staff, water quality and fish compatibility needs. While the base game focuses only on saltwater marine ...

 

7.5 Disintegration

 

Disintegration is a first-person shooter developed by V1 Interactive, a relatively new indie-developer, that aims to blast away any preconceived notions of what a first person shooter should be. While there is no doubt how ambitious of a project that might be for a team of under 30 people, some of the best games are ones that were built out of heart and passion for the hobby of gaming - not simple by those who ...

 

5.0 Volcanoids

 

Volcanoids is an early access co-op survival shooter and base builder from similarly named indie developer, Volcanoid. In a genre that is chock full of popular titles and where competition is fierce, it is not easy for an indie developer to break in, especially with such an ambitious project. Will Volcanoids drill through that barrier or will it explode under the pressure? Let's take a look and find out!

 

9.0 ROCCAT Vulcan 121 AIMO

 

As PC gaming technology pushes forward, so too does that of the accessories to go with them, and ROCCAT is one of the companies spearheading this charge. Nowhere is this more evident than with the Vulcan keyboard, which strives to be the fastest, most innovative keyboard on the market. Keystrokes and mouse-clicks have changed the world as we know it in innumerable ways, perhaps the most enjoyable of these ...

 

8.0 ROCCAT Kain 100 & 122 AIMO M...

 

ROCCAT is easily one of the fastest growing names in PC gaming peripherals. Today, we are taking a look at the Kain 100 AIMO and 122 AIMO Titan-Click RGB gaming mice. A relatively young company, ROCCAT has been producing quality hardware since 2007 and boasts premium German engineering. While there is no doubt that German engineering is known around the globe for its high quality, attention to detail and ...

 

7.5 Predator Hunting Grounds

 

Very few icons of 80’s action movies continue to drive mainstream appeal, but when someone mentions Predator to me. I instantly thing of high action, lush jungles, bullets flying, and Arnold telling me to GET TO THA CHOPPA! Over the years Predator maintains a decent popularity whether in their own films or having some cross overs with Aliens its always a brutal bloodbath of action. Can Predator Huntring ...

 

9.5 Gears Tactics

 

Officially dropping on PC tomorrow, Gears Tactics is a turn-based tactical shooter set in the Gears of War universe. With the rest of the games in the franchise sporting a heavy focus on fast-paced action, it will be quite interesting to see how a slower, turn-based and more cerebral approach to the Gears universe plays out. I certainly hope that the wide variety of weaponry available in the previous games will ...

 

7.5 Monster Energy Supercross 3 ̵...

 

I’m going to take a step back from reviewing Monster Energy Supercross 3 on the PS4, and let my 3-year-old give her thoughts on the latest game in the series from Milestone. “The obstacle course looks beautiful!” Insert “track” for “obstacle course” and you can see where she’s coming from. The game is a looker, as each of its predecessors has been. The tracks look great from the beginning, whether you’re ...

 

7.5 Zombie Army 4: Dead War

 

Released earlier this month, Zombie Army 4: Dead War is the sequel to the Zombie Army Trilogy, which in turn is a spin-off of the Sniper Elite sharpshooter series. In Zombie Army 4: Dead War, you will continue your journey through the Nazi zombie-infested landscapes of 1946 Europe. Featuring a full co-op mode and all of the bullet-time, skull-exploding goodness that has become synonymous with the Sniper ...

 

8.0 Tony Stewart’s Sprint Car R...

 

It’s a warm Saturday night in the summer. The dirt is flying as 20 sprint cars slide around the track in a perpetual left-hand turn, jockeying for position in front of local fans and family members. The motors are a constant drone, leaving your ears ringing while the dirt and dust gets in your eyes; leaving a gritty feeling in your teeth. In video games, that smalltown dirt-track feeling has been missing for a ...

 

7.5 Stone

 

Have you ever said to yourself, “Gee, I wish there was a game where I can play as a belligerent drunken Koala private eye in search of his lover Alex?” Well I certainly didn’t, but yet here we are, time to review Stone - A Hip Hop Stoner Noir by Convict Games.

 

9.0 Frostpunk: The Last Autumn DLC

 

Released on PC in 2018, Frostpunk might be my favourite city-builder of all time. Set in a harsh, unforgiving world in which a global cooling has wreaked havoc on the world and driven a small colony of survivors to settle the last city on Earth around a steam generator, Frostpunk forces you to make tough decisions and many compromises on your journey for survival. Its most recent DLC, Frostpunk: The Last Autumn, ...

 

8.5 1stPlayer K8 Fire Dancing Kit

 

These days, most products are tailored to one specific function. It makes sense that having a singular focus will help create the best version of that product. It also means that it becomes harder to use that product for any purpose other than the one it was specifically made for. This is as true about gaming accessories as it is about anything else. For example, have you tried writing an essay on a mechanical ...

 

8.5 888 Poker

 

For those who are looking to play poker online, there are a ton of different options, some of which are better than others. With so many different opportunities, it’s sometimes hard to pick the one you think will be best. Part of our human nature makes us pretty skeptical of online gaming sites, and it definitely should. There are a ton of sites that are not legitimate, and are just looking to take your ...

 

7.5 Ghost Recon: Breakpoint

 

Released earlier this week, Ghost Recon: Breakpoint is the latest in Tom Clancy’s open-world shooter franchise. Following in the footsteps of Wildlands while promising an entirely remastered combat system and a range of new features, Breakpoint was one of the most exciting announcements at this year’s E3. With many recent games suffering from being over-hyped and then failing to deliver upon release, the ...

 

9.5 Creative Outlier Air

 

Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds are all the rage now, and while the marketplace use to be dominated by Apple Air Pods and the Samsung Equivalent, more and more companies are getting in on the action, and everyone is in competition to see who can get the biggest piece of the market pie. The most shocking revelation while researching for this review is what people want in Bluetooth earbuds, and it wasn’t what I ...

 

10 GraviTrax

 

We’ve reviewed our fair share of toys over the last number of years, including one of the most iconic construction toys on the entire planet: LEGO. Yet somehow, a new toy has entered the Roffel household that is like no other, that has captured the imagination of my kids, even weeks after we first opened it up. I’m talking about GraviTrax, a marble track STEM toy from Ravensburger, one that has already taken ...

 

8.5 Remnant: From The Ashes

 

Remnant: From the Ashes simultaneously feels like a brand new mix of genres and a familiar title reminiscent of gaming days gone by. By themselves, the third-person combat, dungeon-crawling looting and randomly-generated playthroughs are all very comfortable and well-used elements of action-adventure games but the manner in which Gunfire Games has combined them provides an overall experience unlike anything I ...

 

9.0 1stPlayer MK6 Bullet Hunter Mecha...

 

As most gamers know, the faster you play, the better you are. This is one of the main reasons that helped mechanical keyboards make a resurgence in the world of PC peripherals. Unlike the mechanical keyboards of the past, modern versions are stylish and full of secondary functions that are targeted towards player convenience. With all of these features often comes a hefty price tag. But not always. Today we are ...

 

9.0 Game of Thrones: Catan

 

A few weeks ago, we posted our “How to Play” article for Game of Throne: Catan – Brotherhood of the Watch. While I’ve been fairly vocal about my dislike of the base version of Catan, many of the spin off adaptations – most notably to date the Star Trek version – have improved on my main problems with the original. Was Brotherhood of the Watch also able to satisfy my concerns? Let’s dive in! In my opinion, ...

 

9.0 Villainous

 

When consuming different forms of media when it is based on something we love, it’s often hard to determine whether the media you are engaging with is actually good, or if you are looking and experiencing it with rose colored glasses. This was the worry I had when Ravesnburger first published Disney’s Villainous, but since the original release – and two stand-alone expansion – I can easily say that Villainous is ...

 

9.0 Creative SXFI AIR

 

A few weeks ago, we took a look at the Creative SXFI AIR and what made it stand out against other headsets. What we found out was that the Holographic Audio technology utilized by the headset is intended to provide an outstandingly realistic audio experience that aims to fool the user into believing the audio they are hearing is natural and genuine. While hearing the phrase 'holographic audio' for the first time ...

 

9.0 Google Pixel 3a

 

In October of 2018, we took the Google Pixel 3 XL for a test run, and loved our experiences with the phone, especially when it came to the camera. Even today, almost a year later, I still consider the Google Pixel 3 camera to be one of the best – if not the best – phone camera on the market. In step with out cell phone manufactures, Google has decided to launch a paired down version of the Google ...

 

8.0 SteelSeries Stratus Duo

 

The SteelSeries Stratus Duo is effectively your one-stop shop for all of your on-the-go controller needs. In a world where gaming is available at our fingertips 24/7, at least for those of us who have our smartphones attached to our hips, accessories that enable or enhance mobile gaming are becoming much more popular. One major issue in particular is how difficult it can be to achieve precision movement while ...

 

9.5 Google Nest Hub

 

When my family began introducing Google products into the home, we never imagined we would be where we are today. It began with a humble Google Home Mini a few years ago, but has since expanded to include a few more minis, a Google Home, numerous smart outlets, a Google Pixelbook, and just recently, the Google Nest Hub! Each and every device has made the Google experience at home just a bit more enjoyable, but ...

 

7.5 Warhammer: Chaosbane

 

Introduction When I saw the review request on Warhammer: Chaosbane it instantly put a smile on my face . First, it is an aRPG, and we do not have a great selection of those; secondly, this is a Warhammer setup which I’ve been a fan of since I played Shadow Of a Hornet Rat. I know this is a nearly 24 year old game, and probably not widely known, but it was a great strategy game which I still remember.…

 

8.5 HyperX Cloud Stinger Wireless

 

For many years now, HyperX has been a leading name on all things PC; whether it be peripherals or internal components, HyperX provides a top-tier catalog for all of your PC gaming needs. In keeping with this high standard, the HyperX Cloud Stinger Wireless aims to provide a top-level wireless gaming audio experience at a sub-$100 price point. This is an ambitious goal to be sure, but how will the Cloud Stinger ...
