Grid (2019)

Five years and a whole generation of consoles lay between Grid (2019) and the previous Grid: Autosport. Since then, Codemasters made 6 Formula 1 games, 3 Rally games, Onrush, 3 other games and acquired most of the staff from Sony’s former exclusive Evolution Studios (known for Driveclub and the Motorstorm series). That’s a whole lot…

Cat Quest 2

Cat Quest 2 takes the formula of the original Cat Quest and adds dogs. Oh, and a bunch of new spells, a larger overworld and, somehow, even more cat and dog puns. We have no idea how The Gentlebros managed to cram in so many puns that they’re denser than the storage medium but we…

Spyro Reignited Trilogy

It’s been 21 years. I was 7 back then and my favorite food was probably still spaghetti. And now he’s back. The little purple dude who’s kinda on fire. Platforming back into the current generation of video games. Since it’s published by Activision, I’m sure most of us had to think twice about giving this…

Yakuza Kiwami 2

It’s time to return to the world of Yakuza. A world in which every living person suffers from retrograde amnesia because they have been, repeatedly, punched in the face by the series’ protagonist. Well, the people of Kamurocho at least. I mean, that’s the only way to explain why people still keep trying to fight…

Metal Wolf Chaos XD

Metal Wolf Chaos XD is a fifteen year old Japanese exclusive, original Xbox mech game created by everyone’s favourite digital torture artisans, From Software. With their recent work, and prior work on the Armored Core series, Metal Wolf Chaos XD has some huge boots to fill. Does it live up to the “greatest nation on…

Blazing Chrome

Blazing Chrome is unabashedly aping classics such as Contra 3 on the surface but does it have more to offer than basic run-and-gun gameplay? Well, yes and no. The core of the gameplay is all about the running and gunning, but you’ll need quick reflexes, a bit of planning ahead, and plenty of skill at…

Battletech: Urban Warfare

Urban Warfare is the second expansion for Harebrained Schemes Battletech. As the name suggests it focuses mainly on adding in more urban warfare settings including more dense city areas, new bases to assault, and new battlemechs to take into combat against your enemies. Does it add up to more satisfying stompy mech action? Keep reading…

F1 2019

Codemasters’ F1 games are releasing like clockwork. Well, almost. Then this year it’s coming out 2 months early. You’d expect that the new content they provide might be on the smaller side even considering the developers only had 10 months. And I’d actually agree with you this time around, kinda. It’s essentially the same game…

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

Ahh yes, Sekiro, the Soulslike that even the creators have told us isn’t a Soulslike. But people keep trying to play it like one, and are then annoyed that the game plays how it was programmed, rather than how they think it should work. With that out of the way, okay, let’s take a look…

RAGE 2

It’s been nearly 12 years since John Carmack’s RAGE was released. With its very unique Megatextures and true id Software fashion of game and level design it’s no easy task to follow something like that up with another game. And who would’ve guessed to see the creators of Just Cause 1 and 2 working on…

Minion Masters

Minion Masters is a tough game to describe. It’s kinda MOBA-ish (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena – think League Of Legends), but not quite. It’s kind of a collectible card game, but not quite. Minion Masters has you build a deck of spells and minions, assign a hero, and then lob them into two lanes to…

Katana ZERO

Devolver Digital has increasingly been becoming the go-to publisher when it comes to small indie titles, but Askiisoft had a lot to prove with their very first externally published Steam game. Katana Zero, a neo-noir game following the life and assassinations of a mysterious drug-infused samurai might be what makes or breaks Askiisoft depending on…

Devil May Cry 5

Well now, this came a bit out of left field, wouldn’t you agree? After the somewhat divisive fourth game, and the lukewarm at best reboot, we pretty much all resigned ourselves to the fact that Devil May Cry was a dead franchise. And that sucked harder than a donkey in a wind tunnel made of…
