Offensive Combat: Redux! Review

Offensive Combat: Redux is a reboot, if you will, of a web-based shooter in which you try to frag as many other players as you can.As written before it's a reboot of a web-based shooter, arena shooter to be exact.There are a few different game modes, so you aren't always on your own, but these types of games tend to lend themselves to lone wolves. Three Gates AB have resurrected this cult classic and released it as a standalone, downloadable game. It kinda has that Quake 3 feeling in it but with more cartoony graphics. There's a lot of customization options and a lot

De Blob Review

Today I review a game called De Blob which is a 3D platformer made by Blue Tongue Entertainment.These ink punks aren’t about that color life, so it’s up to you to spice the world back up again… free the worlds artists, and bring the 10 different stages back to life. This game was originally released on Wii in 2008 and is finally coming to the ps4, pc, and Xbox one nearly 10 years later, and while the gameplay holds up, standards have changed and the experience isn’t as great as it once was. De Blob starts out really clever and charming, You’re a

Disputed Space - Review

Here's a review about a game that is more of a "let's play it for a few minutes and forget about it" then a normal game.Disputed Space is a fast-paced arcade action game, not a realistic simulator. Players pilot a small fighter ship that can fly in any direction (including backwards) while blasting enemy ships with lasers and missiles. That is what is written on their Steam page, and unfortunately, that's it... that is the whole game. It feels like something you would play in an Arcade 20 years ago, just try to get the highest score. I understand it's an

JCB Pioneer: Mars Review

It's time for another review - this time it's about a new survival game JCB Pioneer: MarsJCB Pioneer: Mars is a survival game set, of course, on Mars. You’ve been sent as one of the first pioneers to colonize the Red Planet and make it sustainable for human life but something’s gone very wrong. Your landing pod crashed, your base is in tatters, the planet’s trying to kill you, and you’re on your own. There’s a basic JCB transport vehicle close by, so you’ll just have to hop in that, avoid all the incredibly deadly weather, get to the remains of

Best Video Game Experiences in 2017

No. No. No I refuse.I stood by for far too long watching some of the most ludicrous awards give nominations to the weirdest games while other games went unnoticed, I stood by as Hollywood descended into bat shit insanity levels of Oscar Nomination and watched Dice and Golden Joystick award some at-best-questionable and at-worst-hilarious titles.No more.Here are my 2017 Best Video Game Experiences.Best Storytelling.PreyDivinity Original Sin IIShovel Knight: Specter of TormentRunner Up: PreyPrey was surprisingly awesome, the atmosphere alone presents an insanely thick universe for the player to live in, while the story is simple, the game provides a lot of

Resident Evil 7 Review

RE7 has good atmosphere.But when you play Dark Souls and you see a huge monster, do you get frightened? Intimidated by the monster's size, or the amount of swords it has? I mean why wouldn't you, Dark Souls has great artstyle and it wants you to feel that way sometimes.I personally don't, I like seeing monsters as challenges, as targets. But even still you appreciate the effort and quality of the artstyle.Not with RE7 tho. Very little variation.The whole game takes place in 2 different environments, gross and decayed house in the swamps, and a very small section on a ship.The

Divinity Original Sin 2 Review

Divinity 2 could very well be one of my favorite RPGs of all time. I played DOS1 prior to DOS2's launch and can say that while there are huge differences in the games DOS2 still adds so much to the table that you gotta appreciate it.DOS2 is a classic RPG, heavy on the story and dialogue with an immense character interaction between everything allowing the player to experience the story in several different perspectives as well as different smaller stories and side quests. On top of having a very cool combat system, turn based, and rewarding the player with tons of
