Nex Machina Review

Nex Machina comes from the mind of Eugene Jarvis and Housemarque, both with incredible pedigrees on their own. Together, they started working on “Project Jarvis” several years ago, and this is the child borne from those ideas. The result is the best twin-stick shooter today. Nex Machina pays homage to games of the past that gave this inspiration, while using technology of today to influence the future of twin-stick shooters in all its voxel glory.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands Review

Ubisoft’s depiction of Bolivia in Ghost Recon Wildlands is gorgeous. It’s got the lush greens of jungles, snowy whites of the mountains, swamps, salt-flats, quarries, and caves. Travel anywhere in this giant sandbox and do anything you’d like. One could say, feel free to go… Wild.

DiRT 4 Review

DiRT 4 has all the modes you expect to be present in a numbered DiRT game, but somewhere along the way, Codemasters didn’t give DiRT 4 a personality befitting for the series. Gone is the Instagram-filtered look and Mountain Dew spewing words from famous extreme sports celebrities of DiRT 2, and also gone are the slick and splashy menu transitions and career navigation of DiRT 3. Where DiRT 4 falls a bit short in presentation, it makes it up where it counts, in gameplay. DiRT 4 is without a doubt the best-feeling and playing game of the series.

Victor Vran: Overkill Edition Review

Consoles need more loot based action RPGs, there I said it. We have Diablo 3 and that’s probably the default most still go to even today. There have been a few other games that attempt to bring something new or fresh to the table but I haven’t found one until now that gives me that addictive feeling. Victor Vran is now on PS4 and it brings the goods for those looking.

Tormentor ❌ Punisher Review

Tormentor❌Punisher is an extreme, top-down shooter that doesn’t give any fucks, and will gladly let you know it. This is like a more violent and brutal Smash TV. To say that Tormentor X Punisher is challenging, but there’s a nuance, and flow to TxP. Aside from a cartoon introduction that takes the playable character to Planet Fuck You, there’s little in the way of the action, which is at the forefront of what Tormentor X Punisher is – a non-stop thrillride of a top-down shooter.

TEKKEN 7 Review

At long last, Tekken 7 has made it way to consoles and PC. While the game has existed as arcade machines previously, and has evolved into Tekken 7: Fated Retribution, this is the first home release of the game. And it is simply titled Tekken 7. It includes all of the arcade updates and much more that offers great fan service for long-time followers and a great way to get anyone caught up, if they haven’t stuck with Tekken over the years. Tekken 7 is a fantastic fighting game with not only great visuals, but smartly improved fighting systems that make it feel like an arcade experience at home with some great storytelling on top of it.

Danger Zone Review

Three Fields Entertainment is a group of veteran developers who most notably worked on the Burnout series. Now with their own development studio they released Dangerous Golf last year. An explosive not-golf golf game that showed that the developers haven’t forgotten their roots. Danger Zone is their second game as a studio, and is fully realized game that proves you can go home again. Danger Zone is powered by Unreal Engine 4 for devastatingly beautiful destruction and gameplay that encourages high scores against real-time leaderboards.

Tokyo 42 Review

I have played Tokyo 42 for at least an hour every day for two weeks now. This game. I love it. I’m sure many other reviews will cite SMAC Games, the developers, references to their influences being GTA2 and Syndicate. Although I can see why they’d say that in an effort help new players understand, I do feel that Tokyo 42 falls confidently into a realm all of it’s own devising. Tokyo 42’s opening moments hold your hand just enough to show you the basics then back off and let you dig into the sandbox with all toys immediately available to you.

First Strike: Final Hour Review

Peter Gabriel’s “Games Without Frontiers” comes to mind when playing this. Even though there’s no discernible era, the game calls upon the Cold War when it was really heating up between the United States and then U.S.S.R. First Strike was originally a mobile and tablet game from Blindflug Studios that took an interesting approach to an apocalyptic real-time strategy not seen since Plague Inc. Now on PC known as First Strike: Final Hour, is the enhanced game in high-definition textures and allows you to play with a keyboard and mouse.

STRAFE Review

STRAFE is the is a juxtaposition of anachronistic gameplay and visual nostalgia that work across many degrees of success. Pixel Titan’s Kickstarter success is a game that reminds you of FPS days gone by, but introduces modern gameplay sensibilities in a roguelike setting to keep the game feeling fresh every time you play. And rather than memorizing patterns, STRAFE becomes a game of survival and strategy in the first-person shooter genre not to be missed.
