Hello again,

It’s another new month, and once again I’m here to cover the Humble Monthly Bundle Early Unlocks.  This is a really solid month as well as an easy one as there are already reviews for two of the three games, and the selection is fantastic.  It’s an Activision triple pack, along with one of the newest games they released for the PC.  It’s Spyro Reignited Trilogy, Call of Duty: World War 2 and Crash Bandicoot Trilogy.Read More »

Spyro Reignited Trilogy Review – Exactly how a collection should be done

Played on Windows.
Also Available on Switch, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

Spyro was one of the unofficial mascots of the Sony Playstation, along with Crash and a few other potential choices. Made by Insomniac Games, it was one of the iconic series that people think about when they think about the original Playstation platform, and with that memory, it’s no surprise gamers often think of it as one of the best games for the system.

BattleTech Review – A more strategic Mechwarrior

Played on Windows.
Also on Linux, and macOS.

BattleTech is a strategy RPG where players move their giant mechs around to fight other mechs throughout a rather large and long campaign. Players will not only manage their mechs, but also their squad and ship focusing on running a mercenary crew.

Just Cause 4 – Review – Just Cause they wanted more money?

Played on Windows.
Also Available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

With Just Cause 2 and 3 being well received there was a lot of anticipation for Just Cause 4, however, it got hammered at launch by both reviews and fans and that pretty much sealed the fate of this game. The level of the negative reaction was unexpected, and while preparing for this review, a quick review of major bugs from the launch makes it clear why the game was so ill-received initially. But has it gotten better?

My Friend Pedro – Review – It’s always good to make new friends

Played on Windows.
Also available on Nintendo Switch.

My Friend Pedro is a strange game. The entire trailer has left a lot of questions in my mind and the fact is Devolver Digital’s lineup before this has been quite solid and kept me interested. I’ve covered The Messenger recently and reviewed Ruiner before that but Devolver Digital has become well known for it’s interesting and sometimes bizarre titles, and My Friend Pedro certainly lives up to that bar.
