Acaratus has promise.  Distinct promise.   Described as a Medieval Steampunk Turn-Based Role Playing Game, you get exactly what you’re told you’ll get.  An MSTBR - which is a few letters short of something bad, so let’s never shorten that again.  I didn’t expect much going into Acaratus, taking a look at development team Nodbrim, […]

Initially slated for release in early February 2015, Dragon Ball Xenoverse (DBX) was delayed an extra week to “ensure the highest possible game-play experience” for players, however, this was unfortunately not the actual outcome.  Upon launching, the login servers for DBX experienced major issues which not only prevented online play, but also affected players offline until […]

XCOM 2 Review

XCOM 2 is a direct sequel to the incredibly popular XCOM Enemy Unknown, that was released in late 2012.  This turn based strategy shooter has improved greatly since its predecessor, but that is not to say it is without some flaws.

 Paddle faster, I hear banjos… Campo Santo, a self-proclaimed “scrappy” development team based in San Francisco, has ignited the gaming world with their piping hot debut title; Firewatch.  Set in Shoshone National Forest, Wyoming, after the devastating Yellowstone fires of 1988, the game follows the journey of Henry, a burly middle-aged male, who has recently […]

Oxenfree Review

Mulder, it’s me…I think you’re going to want to play this game. Founded by former TellTale developers and Disney alumni, “Night School Studio” has truly knocked it out of the park with their debut title, Oxenfree.  This supernatural thriller feels like an eerie assembly of Life is Strange and The X-Files and is complemented by […]
