The gameplay of this roguelike action-adventure, which is set in a twice-nuked future whose pop-culture sensibilities are permanently fossilized in the 1980s, shares a lot in common with that old Sega Genesis favorite.

Winning is a slippery concept, something seen everywhere in today’s gaming culture. Gone are the days when everything was about getting the fastest time or the highest accuracy; to any one of us winning could mean something different – collecting all the achievements, perfecting a flawless run or something as personal building a castle in

Going in, Nightwolf was honestly the character I was looking forward to the least out of the announced Kombat Pack 1 characters. The second DLC addition to Mortal Kombat 11’s roster doesn’t have Shang Tsung’s flashy ability to morph into other characters, the super-iconic moveset of Sindel, nor the sheer amount of fan excitement of

gaming headsets. But over the decade, the functionality has gotten a bit stale, and the release of special editions and color-swaps have outpaced the functional updates. The A40 TR + MixAmp TR (See it on Amazon) aims to fix that by enhancing the audio—with a new set of drivers—and a totally reworked MixAmp designed for

The 1960s provided a mixed bag of the good, the bad and the ugly. On one hand, it was a decade of innovation in space, science and the arts. On the other, you had some terrible fashion mistakes, the Vietnam war and the emergence of the cult. The Church in the Darkness takes the idea

Since its original release in 2004, Metal Wolf Chaos has been a bit of a legend or peculiarity in FromSoftware’s stories history. While it was genuinely an attempt to appeal to gamers outside of Japan with a more arcade-style experience mech game, in a cruel twist of fate the game was never released outside of

After completing two out of its three chapters, I could no longer persevere through Damsel. And not because it was difficult, but because of how many frustrations playing it entailed. Damsel constantly frustrated me with its odd design choices, unintuitive controls and pointless progression. As a 2D platformer, it looks very appealing at first sight,

At no point during Metal Wolf Chaos XD is it easy to forget this a re-release of a 15-year old game. From the bulky menus, cumbersome controls and over-the-top action to the hilariously tongue-in-cheek voice acting, heavy focus on high scores, and complete lack of seriousness throughout, this is very much a video game from

It didn’t take long for me to take a liking to Age of Wonders: Planetfall. From its six over-the-top sci-fi factions spewing lasers, acid bile, and personality all over the randomly generated planets to the way it manages to finely balance its pacing between a traditional 4X campaign and XCOM-style tactical battles, there is plenty
