Winter Ember – Xbox Series X Review

As a fan of stealth adventures I was excited when Winter Ember dropped into TC Headquarters inbox. Developed by Sky Machine Studios and published by Blowfish Studios/Gamera Games, from watching the trailer I couldn't wait to get stuck in! Into the Shadows!

The Hand Of Merlin – Xbox One Review

Developed by Room C Games, Croteam and published by Versus Evil. The Hand of Merlin is a turn-based RPG set in Arthurian times. It was released on Xbox One, Series S/X, Playstation 4/5, Nintendo Switch and PC on the 14th of June 2022. The Hand of Merlin - Marvelous Enough To Make A King Proud If there is one genre I love when it comes to gaming, it has to be tactical turn-based RPGs. I could play these kinds of games all day which also makes me very sceptical when a new one is released because it is either very good or very bad. There's no in-between, but having characters from the age of Merlin was too good to pass up. If you enjoyed this review then you can check out my previous one here.

Infinite Links Review

Developed by Exe-Create and published by KEMCO. Infinite Links is an action turn-based RPG. It was released on the 12th of May 2022 for the Xbox One, Series S/X, Playstation 4/5, PC, and Nintendo Switch. The forces of evil are strong in this one so caution ahead of this Infinite Links Review. Infinite Links - It's A Final Chrono Crossover Here we are with another RPG. The trend is rising and rising and if I'm being honest I really don't mind. I grew up playing RPGs like Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest as well as favourites like Grandia and Chrono Trigger. But during recent times the abundance of RPGs being made makes a lot of them really poor in gameplay. Does Infinite Links fit into that category? Well, I'm here to tell you.
