Absolver Review

Played on Windows.

Absolver is a free-roaming fighting game with a voiceless character who explores an unknown world where he must face bosses, can find other players to help or hurt, and discover the land at his own pace… So yeah, it’s Dark Souls as a brawler.

Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden Review

Played on Windows.
Also available on PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Mutant Year Zero is a tactical strategy game mixed with an adventure game producing an interesting combination. Quite a few compare it directly to XCOM for its tactical and turn-based gameplay and that makes sense. At the same time, there is a lot more to Mutant Year Zero than just a simple clone of another tactical game.

Northgard Review

Played on Windows
Also available on macOS and Linux

Northgard’s story starts pretty simply, it’s a revenge story, where your family has been slaughtered, and you’re out to make those who did pay. Simple, but efficient setting off a great course of events. The odd thing is this isn’t a typical action or adventure game, instead what we have here is a throwback to the old days of the RTS. But is it any good?

Yakuza Kiwami Review

Played on Windows.
Also Available on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 (Japan Only).

A different game of the same name is available on iOS and Android.

Some days it’s not enough to have discussions of who would win in a fight, Superman or Batman. They’re both highly qualified fighters and heroes, but rather than just ask which is better, most people want more. Thankfully Injustice 2 gives us a chance to throw down with some of our favorite superheroes. The question then becomes, is this going to be the definitive answer of which hero is best?

Dirt 4 Review

It’s time to hit the road once again, take our cars out and see who’s the fastest. Rather than hit a track, this time we’re going to prove ourselves on dirt roads. That’s right, it’s Dirt 4, by Codemasters and it’s time to see how this game measure up.

Cultist Simulator Review

Played on Windows.
Also Available on macOS, Linux.

I’m a fan of card games, whether it be Magic, Yu-Gi-Oh, deck building like Dominion, or just as a piece in more complicated board games, like Agricola, card games are great. So I approached Cultist Simulator with excitement and hopeful exuberance. Sadly that hope wasn’t going to last.
