TombStar PC Review

TombStar blazes a path onto Steam on July 20th. This new top-down, roguelite shooter brings a Space Western theme to PC. It has been in development by Andy Sum and Marcus Grambau, with publishing by No More Robots (Let's Build a Zoo, Yes, Your Grace). Andy Sum is the co-founder of Hipster Whale (Crossy Road). Marcus Grambau is the founder of Valorian Games (Ink or Swim). This appears to be their first collaborative project for a PC game release. Bullet Hell But Make it Western? TombStar The last time I wrote a piece for a bullet-hell, twin stick shooter type of game was for the Early Access Release of Uragun. I really enjoyed my time playing that game and interestingly enough I just learned that Uragun is going to be switching to a roguelite gameplay approach as well. If you recall from ...

Distant Worlds 2 – PC Review

Distant Worlds 2 released on PC on March 10th. This is the second game in the 4x space strategy series by Code Force (Distant Worlds: Universe) with publishing by Slitherine Ltd. (Battlestar Galactica Deadlock, Command). It is only available via Steam for Windows PC. Options as Vast as Space in Distant Worlds 2 The 4x strategy genre has not had a huge role in my time as a gamer. Though my Steam library is full of them with the likes of Stellaris, Endless Legend and Endless Space 2, and Civilization VI and Civilization: Beyond Earth; my cumulative time is probably less than five hours. Distant Worlds 2 stood out to me as an alternative to Stellaris so I thought I would take a look. Have you ever had a similar experience where something you usually don't play catches your eye? Let me know ...

King Arthur: Knight’s Tale PC Review

King Arthur: Knight's Tale is now out of Early Access and available on Steam. Developed and published by NeocoreGames (Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, Warhammer 40k: Inquisitor), it is a turn-based tactical game blended with character-centric RPG gameplay. Read on to learn more about this latest game from a veteran studio. Life After Death in Camelot is Darker than Expected Something about Medieval times has always had my interest. I'm not a hardcore historian of the times, I just have always found it fascinating how the world once was. But alongside the history books are the books of mythology. Some clearly with many elaborations but others are a bit closer to fact than to fiction. King Arthur: Knight's Tale puts a new twist on what I would consider one of the better-known tales o...

Dice Legacy: Corrupted Fates PC Review

Dice Legacy: Corrupted Fates is the first DLC for DESTINYbit's dice-based city builder Dice Legacy. I originally took a look at Dice Legacy on PC back in September. You can check out that review here. The new DLC is available now for PC and Nintendo Switch. Let the Occult Preside in Corrupted Fates It's always a great feeling when new expansions come out for your favorite board and video games. Even more so when you least expect it. I had no idea that Dice Legacy had a DLC in the works but couldn't pass up the opportunity to check out Corrupted Fates. I love when games add more content! Gameplay Since Dice Legacy: Corrupted Fates is an addition to the base game we'll just go over what's new rather than rehashing what has already been covered. The primary feature of Corrupted Fates ...
Uragun Preview

Uragun Preview

Uragun is a top-down arcade shooter now available in Early Access on Steam. It is being developed and published by Kool2Play. This is Kool2Play's first title to hit Early Access, with two additional projects currently in the works. Uragun. Like, Literally. Anytime I see screenshots or trailers for top-down shooters I always think about arcade cabinet games. I'm really not sure why, but they just seem to fit well in that type of setting. Uragun is no different. I could imagine playing standing at a cabinet with joystick in my hand, mashing buttons and coughing up quarters-a-plenty. Some other genres fit the bill well too. Which others stand out to you as what could be in a modern arcade setting? Let me know! Gameplay Uragun is a top-down, futuristic action shooter. It also falls und...
Expedition Zero Review

Expedition Zero Review

Expedition Zero hit digital shelves at the end of March. This new survival horror game by Enigmatic Machines and publishing by tinyBuild (Hello Neighbor, Graveyard Keeper) will keep you on the edge of your seat. You can find it now on Steam, GOG, and the Epic Games Store. Yes, I was Afraid in Expedition Zero Over the years I've played only a few survival horror games. Some were more suspenseful than scary. Others, though, were downright terrifying. Like keep your lights on while you sleep scary. In comparison, I would have to say that Expedition Zero falls somewhere in the middle. I felt at times like just the thought of something popping out and scaring me was actually more scary than anything else. But I suppose that is the point. What about you, reader? What horror game in your librar...
Abermore Review

Abermore Review

Abermore is a first-person stealth and heist simulator by Four Circle Interactive (10 Second Ninja). With publishing by Fireshrine Games (KeyWe, Mechwarrior 5), Abermore is only available on PC via Steam. There does not appear to be any plans to bring the game to console. Abermore is a Stealthy Bomb For all outward appearances, Abermore looked to be a game I'd greatly enjoy playing. It has sneaking around, robbing the upper class, and fencing the goods you've stolen. But upon playing the game with all those intentions, it is sadly going to be a rough go for most if not all players trying to play at this time. Unlike my usual reviews, this one is going to take a little bit of a different approach so the format may seem a bit off. But please read on for further understanding. Gameplay...

Aztech Forgotten Gods Review

Aztech Forgotten Gods is a new action-adventure game developed and published by indie studio Lienzo (Mulaka, Hunter's Legacy) available on March 10th. The game is set in an alternate reality in which the American continents did not face conquering nations and civilizations such as the Aztecs were able to flourish and develop into a modern technical society. You wield the power of the Forgotten Gods and become a hero as you turn their power against them. Witness Aztec Influence for a Modern Era in Aztech Forgotten Gods I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I first took a look at the info available for Aztech Forgotten Gods. Once I got to playing it, it took a while for it to really sink in too. Only once I'd got further into the game though it finally did click and I began enjoying it m...
