Wrath: Aeon of Ruin – PC Review

Wrath: Aeon of Ruin is an action retro-shooter developed by KillPixel and released in November 2019 for early access. Its main source of inspiration comes from 90's shooters such as Doom, Quack, Blood and many others.

The game is available now on Steam for £20.99 for those looking to play before the full release.   All Will Know My Wrath In Wrath: Aeon Of Ruin, there are little to no clues as to why you're here and what you're doing.

Persona 3 Reload – PC Review

Persona 3 Reload is an Adventure RPG developed by Atlus and published by Sega. The Persona series first originated as a spin-off of the Megami Tensei games. The series always has us being high schoolers going through some extreme situations. When it comes to controversy, Persona 3 Reload does have a few that even I agree with. Because of the missing content of both "The Answer" and FeMC. However, recently a trusted leaker when it comes to the Persona series, says that we are getting this prologue as DLC. Which has a lot of fans of the series fuming about it being DLC. But, what was sacrificed by this was the FeMC option being forsakened. This is because it was a part of P3P and Reload is a remaster of P3FES. So, you're telling me I'll get free food and board, I'll get a gun and you wan...

Tekken 8 – PC Review

Tekken 8 is a 3-D Fighting game developed and published by Bandai Namco. First released in 1994, this franchise has been going for almost 30 years. It's available on PC, Xbox series X/S, and PS5 with crossplay and rollback netcode.  There was some controversy over adding more accessibility for both colorblind and disabled players. Due to the fact that the game would cause players to have migraines and vertigo. Ian Hamilton discovered this issue during the demo of the game and voiced their concern about this issue. After some back and forth from the community, Bandai Namco did update their options to accommodate all players in the release of the game.  Will you become the next King of Iron Fist Tournament Champion or become a rocket powered salmon!

Home Safety Hotline – PC Review

Home Safety Hotline is an immersive analog horror experience where players must take calls with problems anywhere from mundane everyday household issues like black mold, all the way to the unimaginable horrors that lurk, and everything in between. Computer says no Home Safety Hotline from Developer Night Signal Entertainment, released on January 16th, 2024, after a demo period during the Steam Next Fest 2023, and is available now on Steam. Story & Gameplay The gameplay loop here is simple, as such story and gameplay will be bundled into one. Most of the enjoyment of Home Safety Hotline comes from the creatures, their designs, and their description, so I’ll keep spoilers to the early game. Players take the role of an unnamed character who, congratulations! has just been ac...
