Afghanistan ’11 Review

Making a game about the war in Afghanistan is a difficult task, one that must be a careful blend of respect and entertainment. To which, the developers at Every Single Soldier have done successfully. While Afghanistan ’11 is a follow-up to Vietnam ’65, containing the same type of gameplay but a whole new world and whole new era that separates the two games greatly. Afghanistan ’11 takes you through a different kind of war, one that requires forward thinking and spinning a record number of plates to keep everyone in the game happy, those local and those abroad.

Cosmic Star Heroine Review

I was a late bloomer to the RPG genre. I literally forced myself to get into them when Super Mario RPG Legend of the Seven Stars released as I was a huge Nintendo fan. I had tried to understand RPG mechanics but it never clicked up until this point. Ever since, I’ve been enthralled going back to the games I missed. Games such as Phantasy Star, Chrono Trigger, and Secret of Mana awaited for me to discover. I mention these games because Zeboyd Games latest RPG Cosmic Star Heroine aims to recapture the magic of those titles and it pleases me to say that it does so almost perfectly.

Snipperclips – Cut it out, together! Review

Snipperclips – Cut it out, together! from SFB Games is an unparalleled delight in both frustration and fun. The frustration element is at a minimum and only comes from the game requiring communication and coordination that can lead to it. The fun is finally getting everything aligned to move on to the next level. The music is a joy to listen to, and Snipperclips will be a great party game to introduce your friends and family to the Switch, even though it doesn’t use all of the features of it very well.

FAST RMX Review

Fast RMX serves as a remix and expanded version of Fast Racing NEO that only appeared on the Wii U. It is also a follow-up to Fast Racing League before that on the Wii. What this means, is that Fast RMX is the best version of the game to date where it looks and plays great no matter how you like to do so; whether it be in tabletop mode, handheld mode, or using your joycon grip while the console is docked.

Snake Pass Review

Snake Pass is both a visual delight and a challenging platformer from Sumo Digital. The controls are unique and take time to learn the intricacies of moving a digital snake around as if it were real. The attitude to this platformer is nostalgic and refreshing in the same breath. Snake Pass will be referenced and remembered for years to come – it’s quite the snake charmer.

The Signal From Tölva Review

With a development company named “Big Robot Ltd”, you better be making games with robots in them. Their previous game, Sir, You Are Being Hunted had some malevolent ones you were trying to get away from. In The Signal From Tölva, Big Robot Ltd has doubled down on robots, because not only are you one, but the entire game is filled with them. And this time, you run towards them. The Signal From Tölva is easily Big Robot’s best game, but also a very good one on its own in the ways it is provokes thought and gives player freedom through carefully crafted landscapes shrouded in mystery.

Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition Review

Bulletstorm‘s original release in 2011 saw People Can Fly’s outrageous first-person shooter published by EA. The remastered version, known as the “Full Clip Edition” is now being published by Gearbox, seemingly giving this a more appropriate home for this vulgar and brutal shooter. While Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition‘s core gameplay is strong and worth the replay with a focus on “skill kills” over “boring headshots”. Though, the dialogue doesn’t seem as funny as it once was, and hurts what is an otherwise unique shooter made for modern consoles.

Yooka-Laylee Review

Playtonic Games has made a third Banjo-Kazooie game all but in name. Known as Yooka-Laylee, this game comes thanks to the successfully funded Kickstarter campaign in 2015. Yooka-Laylee‘s release in 2017 makes for a resurrection of the 3D platformer that ceases to surprise, but never fails to make you smile and warm your heart through nostalgia and reverence for genre long since past. Yooka-Laylee also marks the delightful return to this era that will keep you busy collecting and discovering for dozens of hours.

Dead Rising 4 (PC) Review

While the holiday season is long-since over, the trees have been disposed of, and Spring has sprung, Dead Rising 4 makes its way to Steam with some extras that’s made its way into the Xbox One and Windows 10 versions. One would expect that the PC version outperforms the Xbox One version, and it very much does. That may be all you need to hear, but let’s dive a bit further into what makes Dead Rising 4 work for me.

Kworld S33 Elite Music & Gaming Earphones Review

Kworld has been fighting the good fight in terms of making an accessible and powerful earphones that are more than just “earbuds”. This Taiwan-based company has made a believer out of me that earphones can be both comfortable and powerful with the sound that they output. The S33’s are comfortable, perhaps a bit too shiny, but deliver excellent audio that will make for an excellent low-profile earwear for gaming, music, travel, and even working out.
