Hands-On: Wrack

Hands-On: Wrack 

Some time ago, a game under development caught my eye. Strongly influenced by classics such as Wolfenstien 3D and Doom, Wrack brings the player back to a simpler time in FPS history. The demo build I received from the developers, Final Boss Entertainment, may only have contained three levels but it was enough to make me believe that the final product could become a favourite among FPS fans.

Review: Analogue – A Hate Story

Review: Analogue – A Hate Story 

Let me get this out of the way first of all: I am not a big fan of visual novels. Rare is the visual novel that can capture my attention and I know many others feel this way too. Katawa Shoujo recently released to much press attention for its touching stories and well-crafted characters, but the question arises as to whether you’re “playing a game” or “reading a story”. This distinction  can make the difference between whether someone might want to get into one or not.

Review: Trine 2

Review: Trine 2 

When Trine was released roughly two years ago, its mix of physics-based platforming, action and light puzzling felt like a breath of fresh air. Now its sequel, Trine 2, is out and might seem like more of the same. For good or ill, it is far from it. I’ll elaborate.

My Game of the Year: The Witcher 2

My Game of the Year: The Witcher 2 

As the year now draws to a close, I’m forced (through the use of whips and canes) to choose my Game of the Year. After much thought and the sacrifice of two hens to the gods of decision-making, I can think of no better game to receive my nomination than The Witcher 2.

Review: Bang! The Videogame

Review: Bang! The Videogame 

Bang! is a videogame version of the 2002 card game of the same name. You take on a spaghetti western-inspired role and strategically play your hand in order to eliminate the other players. It is out on multiple platforms, so for the purpose of this review we’ve covered both the iPhone and PC version.

The Problem with PunkBuster

The Problem with PunkBuster 

When I booted up Battlefield 3 for the first time, I was very impressed by the level of polish present. Despite its browser-based setup, the interface was incredibly fluid and easy to navigate, and I found myself awestruck at how simple it was to complete basic functions like joining a friend or finding a game.

Review: The Binding of Isaac

Review: The Binding of Isaac 

I showed The Binding of Isaac to my nine year old brother. Only in passing, as some of the content in there, I wouldn’t want him to see. He said, “Is it like Zelda?” to which I replied, “Well, sort of.”

Review: TrackMania 2: Canyon

Review: TrackMania 2: Canyon 

The latest in this time-attack arcade racing franchise, TrackMania 2: Canyon is a smaller package than its predecessors, focusing on one environment compared to the previous game’s seven. According to TM2, less is actually more.

Review: Hard Reset 

Just two months prior to its release, Polish developer Flying Wild Hog announced their debut game – Hard Reset. Along with the debut trailer, the developer promised an FPS with old-school sensibilities, designed exclusively for the PC. It sounded like a promising first game for the new studio. Did Flying Wild Hog succeed or fail?

Review: Blocks That Matter

Review: Blocks That Matter 

Blocks That Matter is about intrigue, deception and, most of all, love. The power of love towards all things blocky. It is a tribute to games with blocks. And why not? Blocks are great. My first ever gaming experience was smashing a block as Alex Kidd. Only his blocks didn’t matter all that much (poor Alex Kidd). You play as Tetrobot, a robot who can collect blocks of matter and set them four at a time. The blocks are scattered throughout the level, each with their own properties. The sand […]

Review: EDGE

Review: EDGE 

After all the legal disputes over EDGE’s name, I for one am glad to have the opportunity to play it on the PC now. EDGE has this inherent charm in the sense that whenever you fire it up on Steam, your humorous friends will flood the screen yelling “EDGE” in all caps.

Review: Solar 2

Review: Solar 2 

Think back to when you used to play Grand Theft Auto 2 until the wee morning hours: did you, in the midst of the intense bloodshed and reckless sidewalk surfing, ever think to your past self, “Self, this game would transcend to true greatness, if and only if it were set in space, and I were playing as an asteroid instead of a ne’er-do-well”? If that thought has burned ever-bright in the back of your brain for the last 12 years, the moment you have been waiting for is here, […]

Review: Defy Gravity Extended

Review: Defy Gravity Extended 

Nailing that feeling of satisfaction when you’ve figured out a solution to the task at hand is very difficult. Not all mechanics allow it and not all games offer more than one route from point A to point B. I believe gravity manipulation and physics-based gameplay is one of the greatest things gaming has bothered exploring. When done well, it is logical, intuitive and rewarding. It’s like pulling out that second to last piece of Jenga. This is what Defy Gravity Extended is: an extremely satisfying game. You play as […]
