Throne: Kingdom at War Review: Taking Mobile Strategy to a New Level

Mobile strategy games are great, but have you ever felt like things could be a little bit more, well, interactive? Sure, the timed elements mean you have to make effective moves and continually stay engaged with the action if you want to succeed.

Mega Maker Review

Today I am looking at a very interesting Mega Man fangame, called Mega Maker. As the name implies, it is for Mega Man what Mario Maker is for that series- a way for you to create your own levels, hazards, and so on for Mega Man to traverse. While not an official Capcom work, I would still recommend it to…

Psychonauts Review

Psychonauts is on many fronts a ground breaking game. In a review it would be easy to say that the witty dialogue is what makes this game stand out, but that would leave out the compelling assortment of collectibles. One could say the gorgeous art style is what makes this IP so unique, but that would undermine the fantastic platforming…

Friday the 13th: The Game Review

Those who were a fan of the movie series, which began back in 1980, are sure to have garnered excitement when hearing about this title. I was one of those fans. However, it is fairly common knowledge within the gaming community that movie-tie in games are rarely successful. With that said, could Friday the 13th: The Game buck this trend? Continue…

Lego City Undercover Review

Lego has made itself a very well known name since its inception, from the wood cars of their origination, to the plastic blocks the majority of us remember fitting together just right to make some complicated and largely representative spaceships. They seem to do best when they’re refitting a well known IP into their own silly style and interpretation. Exploring…

Verdun: A True War Game?

When we look back at this past year of war games, such as Battlefield 1 and the latest Call of Duty game, we see that of simulated war. But does it really simulate war? Don’t get me wrong, I have and still love Battlefield 1 since the release in October and have been playing it continuously, but it is not…
