Dysterra Preview

Dysterra is a survival, crafting, and multiplayer open world game currently in development by Reality MagiQ (Space Block Buster, Special Force VR: Infinity War) with publishing by Kakao Games (Elyon, Path of Exile). It currently doesn't have a planned release date but it recently had a beta test week from November 15th thru the 28th. I was able to dip a toe into the game to see what it's all about. As of right now Dysterra may only be found on PC via Steam. Dysterra - Gather, Craft, Build, etc. etc. For a game not having any sort of planned release date, Dysterra looks dang pretty. But then there comes the question of which is more important to you as a gamer. Do you prefer a game that looks amazing but may not have the best gameplay? Or would you rather play one that may not look gr...

Let’s Sing 2022 With Baga Chipz!

Here at Thumb Culture, we love it when gaming brings people together, either through virtual worlds or in real life. The recently released Let's Sing 2022, the first karaoke game available for the new console generation, is a great example of this! The latest addition to the critically acclaimed karaoke franchise is now available on Xbox Series S/X, One X, PlayStation 4 and 5 and the Nintendo Switch. To celebrate the launch of Let's Sing 2022, we decided to explore our love of karaoke within team TC and beyond, by chatting to the one and only Baga Chipz! But before we jump into that, I decided to test out the musical tastes of the Thumb Culture team by asking them to name their favourite karaoke tracks. The results were, let's just say, varied. Let's Sing: Thumb Culture Edition ...
Call of Duty: Vanguard Review

Call of Duty: Vanguard Review

Another year, another Call of Duty game, and Call of Duty: Vanguard marks its eighteenth main entry into the franchise. This iteration sees the series return to its roots, that of a World War II setting. I do prefer the exploration of this era as opposed to the highly fictionalised games set in the modern-day, as they let you play out events that actually happened. Call of Duty: Vanguard - "If You're Going Through Hell, Keep Going", Winston Churchill This year's game has been developed by Sledgehammer Games with Treyarch handling the Zombies portion of the game, and once again, Activision is publishing. This is the third title developed by Sledgehammer, with the other two being Advanced Warfare and WWII. They did a great job with WWII so I was really excited about getting stuck into this...

Maneater: Truth Quest DLC Review

Developed and published by Tripwire Interactive. Maneater: Truth Quest is the DLC to the hugely popular video game Maneater. Released on Playstation 4/5,  Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X, and PC on 31st of August 2021. Maneater: Truth Quest - It's Never Save To Go Back In The Water When I first played Maneater I was absolutely amazing at how a game where you play as a shark could be. It blew me away at how good it was and when I finished it. I remember thinking that it had so much to offer and I couldn't wait to see if they were going to release some DLC for the game. Well in August I got my wish as the Truth Quest DLC was released. So let's jump back in the water and take a chunk out of this DLC, shall we? If you enjoyed this review then why not check out my review for the base game of Man...

Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition Review

Welcome to my review of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition. That's a mouthful, isn't it! The return of the iconic trilogy is developed by Grove Street Games (GTA Chinatown Wars, Max Payne iOS, and Android) and published by Rockstar Games (L.A. Noire, Red Dead Redemption). We all know the story of these games. We play as someone who starts their story as a down and out, working our way up the chain of organised crime gangs. I was kindly given a PlayStation review key for the GTA remastered trilogy, and I played it on the PlayStation 5. Three Iconic Cities, Three Epic Stories. Plus Lots Of Bugs. So how does the return of three of my favourite games from my younger days play out? Continue reading to find out. Check out my previous review here where I played Airborne K...
