The bundle includes Arkham Asylum, City and Knight, as well as the often forgotten (officially) Origins. You’ll also get three Lego…

Can Grow: Song of the Evertree Overcome a Slow Start – Yes it Can

With limited time to play and review games, there are a number of things that can make me put down a review build of a title and walk away. One of those things is when a game just cannot seem to get out of it's own way and let players...play! And that was almost the case with Grow: Song of the Evertree, and if it wasn't for my love of these style of games - Hello Harvest Moon and Story of Seasons! - I probably would have quit within the first 2 hours. Fortunately for me, I didn't!

Before We Leave Handles City Building with Ease on Xbox Series X

Before We Leave, a fun and deep city builder from Team 17 lands on Xbox today, and I have been playing it for the better part of a week. And I'll admit off the top that I was really skeptical of how this game would run on console. When it comes to strategy games on console, only two have really worked in my opinion: Planet Coaster (which I played on the PlayStation 5), and Two Point Hospital (which I played on Nintendo Switch). So the question became - could I find a equally fun experience on Xbox and love it? Let's take a look.

The GTA Trilogy Shows Publishers Are Too Cocky

When I wrote that the GTA Trilogy collection had best be good, because even Rockstar only gets one chance to majorly screw up, I worried I might be being overly sensitive. This is Rockstar we’re talking about, they’re not going to release a game that has the lowest Metacritic user score of all time. Yes, Grand Theft Auto 6 will now only sell 100 million copies instead of 155 million. Or, more likely, we’ll all be taken in by the…

Halo Infinite – First Impressions

At long last, Microsoft’s long-awaited Xbox Series launch title is here. Halo Infinite is a year late and, in fact, arriving after Forza Horizon 5 and Psychonauts 2, but better late than never. And, actually, it has been a long time since Halo has felt this good. The multiplayer mode for Halo Infinite was shadowdropped during the Xbox 20th anniversary celebrations on Monday. Technically still a beta, it is the full release in every way except name. You can get…

Airborne Kingdom is a City Building Gem

When it comes to city builders on consoles, the results are generally poor. Even if the game is rock solid, the controls don't often translate well to controllers. These are games primarily built for a mouse and keyboard. Yet somehow Airborne Kingdom deals with those issues with ease, and provides a fantastic experience that is a must play for any city building fan.
