South Park: Snow Day! – PS5 Review

I got to check out South Park: Snow Day, the next addition where we'll play as the "New Kid" as Cartman pulls us into another game. Thanks to the developers at Question, you and three other New Kids will team up together and face off against Elves, Marshwalkers and Sixth Graders. The game releases for PlayStation, Xbox, and Steam on March 26th for £24.99. Goin' down to South Park, gonna have myself a time.

Alone in the Dark – PC Review

Alone in the Dark has seen many iterations as it is a franchise that spans over 30 years. The fact that I was 12 years old when I played the original by Infogrames does make me have a bit of an existential moment. Here in 2024, we have devs Pieces Interactive and publisher/owner of the franchise THQ Nordic's vision for the Lovecraftian horror, action, puzzle-solving instalment of the game. Back to Derceto we go With the original 1992 Alone in the Dark paving the way for 3D-style horror games such as Resident Evil and Silent Hill, I was very excited to see how this single-player game has evolved to catch up with what we expect nowadays in terms of gameplay, storyline, visuals, and sound.

Tevi – PC Review

Through the adventure going through Tevi, I've experienced some great storytelling and amazing world building. But something got caught in the cogwheel during my playthrough. And it was the time around me that would disappear playing. No regrets.  Tevi is an Action, Adventure Metroidvania with some Bullet Hell splashing on there by a bucket. Developed by CreSpirit who also made a similar game format called Rabi-Rabi that I've had the pleasure of experiencing before. The game first appeared on people's radars at the OTK Games Expo 2023 on June 13th.  They've even hosted a demo event from 7/21 - 8/18 to let people try it before people can wishlist it. As of writing this, they now allow people to demo the game before purchasing. I wish more developers follow CreSpirit's lead and do more...
