Chronos: Before The Ashes Review

December 11, 2020 // 0 Comments

In 2016, Gunfire Games released the RPG Chronos, which a lot of folks compared to titles like Dark Souls and The Legend of Zelda. While the game was generally well received, it had an extremely limited audience because it was a VR game on PC promoted by Oculus. So you had to VR to play it. Now the game has been overhauled and the VR removed, and [...]

MouseCraft Review

July 14, 2014 // 3 Comments

There may be a drought of big release titles on the new gaming consoles, but one thing PS4 isn't lacking is quality indie titles. A couple of these digital games release every month, and July started off hot with the release of MouseCraft from Curve Studios. MouseCraft is a “simple” puzzle game in the vein of something like Lemmings only much more enjoyable in this day and age. You're tasked with helping three mice get past a series of obstacles to get to the cheese. To complete the level, you only need to get one mouse to the cheese. [...]

Storm Review

July 2, 2013 // 1 Comment

Storm has been a most curious game. I first posted the trailers for the game two years ago when it was coming to PSN, and then it did hit PSN. But for some reason the game was pulled from the store without a reason. The game finally released in mid-June for PSN and XBLA. So what is Storm? Well, it is a “physics” based weather puzzle game. Your [...]

Dyad Review

July 14, 2012 // 2 Comments

Dyad is really a unique offering that’s hard to accurately describe in writing; it’s truly a game that needs to be played as reading about it doesn’t really do it justice. At it’s core, it’s a racing game of sorts, but it’s unlike any other racing game out there (and really, it almost feels cheap to call it a [...]

4 Elements HD Review

October 14, 2011 // 1 Comment

4 Elements HD is a matching game, but instead of swapping two adjoining pieces to try and put three of the same color together, 4 Elements HD requires you to look carefully and use the joysticks (or Move) to chain three or more same colored gems together. Each level as some type of liquid energy, and you’ll have to destroy the tiles by creating [...]

LIMBO Review

July 20, 2011 // 1 Comment

Limbo was released July of last year on Xbox LIVE Arcade, and it garnered a lot of attention and praise. It had my interest, but I didn’t have an Xbox 360. Thankfully, a year later, Limbo hit the Playstation Network today and I have finally gotten to experience the wonderful indie game that is Limbo. Limbo is a “simple” 2D [...]

Portal 2 Review

May 11, 2011 // 2 Comments

Reviewer’s Note: I am reviewing the Playstation 3 version of the game, which I got after the attack on the Playstation Network. As such, I have been unable to link the game to my Steam account or connect to PSN to play the online co-op. Therefore, this review does not factor any of the Steam features or the online play. This review is purely [...]
