Deathsmiles (PC) Review

Deathsmiles is the latest in a series of fantastic shoot-em-ups (“shmups” for short) that have trickled out onto PC.  These additions are gems, especially for fans of the genre, because they have typically been rare, expensive, and in some cases limited to the Japanese market.  Making the move to PC allows the beef and performance to

Superhot Review

Superhot is the first person shooter power fantasy brought to life.  Whether it’s scripted events, stupid AI, or really forgiving auto aim you never actually perform the badass moves seen in action films yourself.  This is accomplished in Superhot by nearly freezing time when you look or aim, returning time to normal speed whenever you move.  The

Layers of Fear Review

I’ve always had a special draw to the concept of the haunted house.  Being a middle-aged male, I acknowledge that a majority of what goes on is often not about scaring me, which is absolutely the case if I happen to have a female teenager with me.  I often enjoy taking my much younger sister

Dying Light: The Following Review

For those that have not touched Dying Light before, suffice to say it’s a great open-world game that finally makes the zombie apocalypse feel realistic.  Melee is the popular form of combat, but more important than knowing how to fight is knowing when to run.  You’ll mix both to stay alive against the difficult special zombies and

Dariusburst Chronicle Saviours Review

When you think of space shooters, the Darius series is probably not the first one you would think of, so it came as a wonderful surprise to to see this title come from out of nowhere and single handedly brought about what could be the renaissance of the space shooter series.  Dariusburst Chronicles Saviours (DBCS) is

Hard West Review

The early days of the West were chaotic.  You could be grabbing dinner at a local bar and the next thing you know demons have arrived to take you back to underworld.  Death isn’t absolute and abilities that defy explanation run rampant, especially in a gun fight.  Now, mind you, this isn’t the Old West

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing: Final Cut Review

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing: Final Cut is more than a mere hybrid of the three individual games, and rather becomes a cohesive title that does a decent job of standing up to other ARPGs (action role playing games) like Diablo.  You’ll be in loot heaven as you traverse through a steampunk world from the

Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition Review

Last summer developer Larian Studios premiered its crowd funded RPG that blended dungeon crawling, tactics, and traditional story-based adventures upon the PC gaming crowd.  While I admit that I like to play a majority of games on PC, I’m a couch gamer and the look and interface of this title alone – not to mention

Shadowgate (2014) Review

If you were around for the point-and-click adventure boom on computers in the 80s and early 90s, then you’re probably already aware of Shadowgate.  While Sierra and LucasArts battled it out for the number one position – Sierra always won, by the way, even if it didn’t have the better games – there were a handful

Need For Speed Review

The Need For Speed franchise has been in constant flux in the last few years since EA decided to streamline the branding of all racers with this title.  I don’t know about the rest of you, but I have mostly stuck to the former Burnout developer Criterion’s titles as well as the recent Ghost Games
