Knowledge is Power: Decades (PlayLink)

Are you great at guessing or are you even genuinely knowledgeable in all areas? Get your friends, family and enemies together to find out whether you have the brains to match your smart mouth, because in this game, Knowledge is Power. As a sequel to Knowledge is Power, Knowledge is Power: Decades is its own separate title. It still plays the same, has some familiar power plays, and you still have ...

Survisland – The hardest survival game in 2018, they say

Imagine.. You wake up lying on a beach on a deserted island. All you have is a pair of jeans and a tshirt. Fortunately the sun is shining, but you see dark clouds looming. You’re hungry and night is approaching. You check your vitals, everything seems okay, but you’re tired. You see a coconut palm, and some banana trees. You don’t have the energy to climb a tree. You look around&...

Hungry Dragon: Eating Humans is Fun!

Look, we all do it! You do it, I do it, she does it, and even he does it, yes… even him. Using your smartphone on the toilet is almost certainly unhygienic – but you’ve got to do something to pass the time. Unfortunately, the new app game: Hungry Dragons has led to 1 or 2 people believing I may be sick… we don’t need to go into specifics here. But the truth is I’ve just been enraptured by the newe...

Marvel’s Spider-Man

Have you ever wanted to swing and glide through New York City, scuttling up and down skyscrapers and stopping only to beat up bad guys? If you answered yes, then you’re going to want to get your hands on Insomniac’s new Spider-Man game on PS4. It captures the amazing feel of being a superhero with an entire city as your playground. The gameplay is broken into two quite distinct styles. The main mi...

The Making of Mavericks: Proving Grounds

Mavericks is a new and interesting looking battle royale-type game that is coming soon to a PC near you. I recently wrote an article for PMG with some information about how things are supposed to look. In that info was a suggestion that there would be a closed beta happening this month, which I had hoped to get access to. Whelp… bad news. There won’t be a closed beta, or an open beta, ...

Review: Detention

I’m someone who likes to trick myself into thinking I can handle, even enjoy, the horror genre. So when the opportunity to review Detention popped up I was all like ‘pfft yea of course I can handle it LOL’. After all, it’s basically a point and click side-scrolling game  with 0% combat and I played a million of those in the 90s.  I think I managed about ten minutes on my ow...

Why DotA 2 Eats N00bs for Breakfast

In considering a review for one of the most highly-successful (and possibly most hated) games in MOBA history, I scrapped that idea. Almost every gamer already has an opinion of DotA 2. And to be fair, no one is really wrong. Ask any gamer what DotA is and you’ll usually get one of the following responses: 1) “I tried it for awhile and just couldn’t get into it.” 2) “...

There’s Poop in My Soup Review

It’s got an intriguing title but is a turdfest enough to make a good game? That’s what I’m about to find out as I load it up, making sure that I’m offline on Steam to avoid snide messages from my gaming friends. The game is simple – so simple in fact that the developers don’t even bother telling you what the controls are before launching you into the first level...

Far Cry Primal Review

The latest installment in the Far Cry series does a bit of a jump. Instead of hang gliding in Asia, getting attacked by surprisingly aggressive honey badgers, or constantly having to juice yourself up with malaria medicine, we’ve gone way back into the past to when elephants were hairier, collecting human ears was normal and the drugs were more… homemade. Far Cry Primal, as the name suggests...

Firewatch Review

QUICK SYNOPSIS You’re a white guy with a beard who has run away from his relationship problems and taken up a job as a fire lookout. The only person you have any real contact with is another lookout called Delilah whom you only talk to via a radio. Then things start to get a bit weird. SNAP REVIEW Excellent story, I nearly cried once, was super engaged and didn’t want to leave. A bit quick, but it...
