Carrion (Impressions)

What happens when you take a “Metroidvania” style game, throw in controls that make you feel super powered from the outset and throw in buckets of blood? I’m fairly certain it’ll be Carrion from Phobia Game Studio. After seeing it feature in Devolver Digital’s most recent presentation it’s […]

Coffee Talk (Impressions)

I’m not one for actively trying out purely narrative driven games as they’re usually not my cup of tea (!) but when Coffee Talk by Toge Productions appeared as part of Xbox’s Games with Gold promotion in the last month I had to give it a go. I […]

Call of Duty Campaign Round-Up

During some breaks in my overly obsessed focus on unlocking Battle Pass tiers in the latest Modern Warfare I’ve also delved into some of the recent campaign releases from prior games and thought I’d share some thoughts. More like a brain dump than anything else this time. 😉 […]

After enjoying my time a lot on Deliver Us The Moon I thought I’d try out a similar game in the genre, Fullbright’s Tacoma. The developer’s previous game Gone Home pretty much defined this style of narrative driven adventure (for better or worse) and after playing it through […]

Deliver Us The Moon (Review)

Nier: Automata (Impressions)

Thankfully publisher Square Enix would later release it to Xbox in the form of the “BECOME AS GODS Edition” which is where […]

Call of Duty: Warzone (Impressions)

When Activision finally stepped up to get Call of Duty into the free-to-play space they certainly didn’t skimp on the effort because my impressions of what’s been achieved with Warzone are that it’s really, really good. Pulling from the recent Call of Duty: Modern Warfare reboot the game […]
