Gunslingers & Zombies Review

What happens when you mix up the wild west and zombies? Red Dead Undead Nightmare! Well, no, umm what happens when you mix up the wild west, zombies and XCOM? Gunslingers & Zombies. A game formally available on Steam has now made its way to the Nintendo Switch, but is it worth your time? Or should it have been left in the graveyard? Gunslingers & Zombies is an action-adventure strategy game hilariously mixing two beloved pop-culture themes: the Wild West…

The Last of Us Part One Review

It’s been 9 years since I first experienced The Last of Us, which I originally played on PS3. The game for me unraveled a story like no other I had ever experienced in my 30+ years of gaming. It brought me moments of excitement, hope, fear and even sadness. I will say right now, and I’m not too proud to, this was the first video game that as a father…. made me cry. Ever since completing it back in 2013…

Aquadine Review

So, first off let me say, coming into this review I knew absolutely nothing about Aquadine. I never heard from it, wasn’t on my radar or anything. Let’s check out the official description: After his mother was hospitalized for an unknown disease, Robin Liyun works as a part-time gondolier to make ends meet, but under an alias named Ciel. As he finishes giving tours one night, a mysterious voice lures him to discover a beautiful mermaid. She dives underwater shortly…

Arcade Paradise Review

Welcome to Arcade Paradise, the 90’s-fuelled retro arcade adventure. Rather than washing rags for a living, you decide to turn the family laundromat into the ultimate arcade.

E-WIN 2.0 Edition RGB Gaming Desk Review

As with any “real” gamer, we all want the best consoles, or computers, chairs, screens, and all that fun stuff. But how often do we think about desks? Well, it’s time we put some thought into that as well. As more and more folks are into setting up their “battle stations” for gaming, content creation and the like, we spend a lot of time at a desk. So personally, I think it’s just as important as the rest, so we…

Escape Academy Review

If you love the experience of solving riddles, puzzles, or an escape room; but really dislike people, moving around, and potentially getting sweaty, then Escape Academy might be just your kind of game. The narrative for Escape Academy is a little tough to follow and honestly one of the only detractors of this game. You start off in a simple enough escape room in a run down building but somehow fall down a great rabbit hole of enrolling in an…

PowerWash Simulator Review

What makes a good game? Is it knights with giant swords, or robots with death rays? Is it really fast cars? Epic adventures in unknown lands? PowerWash Simulator is the latest game to prove it doesn’t have to be any of those things. Actually, my first few hours with it were regularly punctuated with the phrase “I’m not even sure I’m enjoying it”. Which, incidentally, is said about as much whenever I have to do a real-life chore. And therein…

Ape Escape (PlayStation 5) Review

Time travel, monkeys, a kid you really want to beat up – Ape Escape had it all. And now it can again on PlayStation 5. Thanks to the new PlayStation Plus release, the original PS1 classic has found new life, outputting at a higher resolution, with a handful of quality of life features and a trophy list. This is a great chance to relive the good old days or capture a monkey army for the first time. My only knowledge…

Blade Runner: Enhanced Edition Review

Even the Blade Runner version of 2019 looks like a dream compared to 2022. No pandemic, no crazy politics – just murder robots and really bad pollution. Oh, and new coke. So visiting it in video game format for the first time in 20 years felt like it was going to be a real treat. And in many ways it was. This enhanced edition of the original PC point and click game was a labour of love for the developers…

TMNT Shredder’s Revenge Review

Growing up I was a massive Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fan, and yes I mean the old show. I’m part of that generation, where we would get personal pan pizzas from Pizza Hut and even bought the musical album they put out as well as the tour video…I had it all, tons of figures, bed sheets, and video games. The Ninja Turtle video games have always held a special place in my heart, especially the arcade ones. Back when arcades…
