Lake Ridden / EGX Rezzed hands-on impressions

Last year at EGX we got the chance to play a short demo of Lake Ridden and were almost instantly on board from our first glance, becoming even more intrigued when we sat down and played it. Needless to say, we were very much looking forward to playing more of the game at EGX Rezzed and getting a more in-depth look at what Lake Ridden has to offer. This time around though we weren’t walking through...[Read More]

Windlands 2 / EGX Rezzed hands-on impressions

I’ve personally had very little experience with playing VR so I was eager to get some time on the best looking VR games at EGX Rezzed, it was easy to see from watching others play, that Psytec Games’ Windlands 2 was definitely going to be one of them. Windlands 2 is best described as the ultimate VR Spider-man experience, as you move through open-ended levels by swinging from grappling hooks you h...[Read More]

REVIEW / Life Is Strange: Before the Storm – Episode 3: Hell Is Empty

Episode three of Life is Strange: Before the Storm had the unfortunate position of tieing up all the loose ends laid out by the first two episodes. I have to say, honestly, I wasn’t feeling confident that episode three would deliver on a satisfying conclusion, but I was also hoping that I’d be proven wrong. This episode opens up almost immediately after the cliffhanger of the previous episode, wit...[Read More]

REVIEW / Life Is Strange: Before the Storm – Episode 2: Brave New World

As I’ve said before, I felt like we’d already been told all we needed to know about Chloe and her relationship with Rachel Amber in Life Is Strange without the need for a prequel series, and to be honest, I was still feeling that way after finishing episode one. So it’s fair to say there was, even more, pressure on the second episode of this three-part series to deliver on giving some real meaning...[Read More]

Jettomero: Hero of the Universe – EGX hands on impression

Now that EGX 2017 is over and I’ve had time to think about all the standout indie games I played over the weekend I can easily say nothing pulled me in more than the adorable and relaxing Jettomero: Hero of the Universe. From what I gathered while playing, Jettomero is an exploration game. You play as the title character, Jettomero, a giant robot who is as naive as he is clumsy. Trying his very be...[Read More]

REVIEW / DreamBreak

I didn’t know what to expect going into DreamBreak. I was hearing conflicting reports on what kind of game it was, some saying a point and click, some saying a platformer and others saying it was both? I really couldn’t get a solid report on the game and now having played it I can tell you with a complete understanding that it’s kind of neither. DreamBreak is set an alternate version of the futuri...[Read More]
