Fun, Fun, Fun and Wub, Wub, Wub – Our Saints Row IV Review

by Charles Powerson August 20, 2013
Dubstep guns and super powers…an alien invasion and a virtual Steelport…spaceships and insurance fraud (yes it’s back!), welcome to Saints Row 4! Saints Row 4, a game that is so out-of-this-word, so ridiculous, so…not serious, but yet is heaps of fun. To put into words the vast expanse of things one can do in the game is […]


DuckTales Remastered Review | Bless Me Bagpipes

by Darrin Wrighton August 14, 2013
DuckTales Remastered is WayForward and Capcom‘s HD remaster of 1989′s DuckTales, one of the best platformers released on the Nintendo Entertainment System. Nobody was more excited for this game than I was, but this week’s release begs the question: is DuckTales still awesome, or did WayForward‘s attempts to “improve” the game crash like Launchpad McQuack? […]

Hotline Miami, the intensely violent top down brawler from developer Dennaton Games, has been gaining attention on the PC […]

by Katerina Perichon June 24, 2013

Valiant Hearts: The Great War Review | Dog of War

by Sam Robinsonon July 20, 2014

Glitchspace is an upcoming puzzler created by a small team of developers at Space Budgie, where the player reprograms the environment to reach their goal.
