Halls of Torment PC Preview

Halls of Torment is a fantasy horde survival roguelite. It is developed and published by Chasing Carrots (Good Company, Pressure Overdrive). You can find it out now in Early Access on Steam. Halls of Torment is Another Steam Deck Staple I've never really been into horde survival games. I held out a long time before finally picking up Vampire Survivors when it suddenly became so popular. But once I did get around to it I could understand why. Halls of Torment is looking like it will be the same way. I've already added it to my list of games that will always be available on my Steam Deck. The list isn't long yet, but any game that is as simple and entertaining to pick up for a quick session should be there. What's on your list? Gameplay Halls of Torment is one of the latest horde surviva...

Oni: Road to be the Mightiest Oni – PC Review

Oni: Road to be the Mightiest Oni is the latest game from game developers Kenei Design & Shueisha Games. They are a team of five who had the goal of creating a small but feature-rich world full of character and adventure. The game was released on 3rd March 2023 on all platforms after two years of development. Eeny Meeny Miney Oni Oni: Road to be the Mightiest Oni is a game steeped in Chinese culture and nostalgia. The developers' goal was to make players feel as if they had jumped into the pages of a childhood picture book. I have to admit I like the look and feel of the game from its dark treelines and the muted colours of the foreground glades contrasted somewhat by the bright and vivid distant mountains. Are there any other games you enjoy with a similar style and feel to this one...

How to Deal with post Diablo 4 Beta Withdrawals

My Name is Stu, and it feels like a long while since the 26th of March; the last time I played Diablo 4. Like Many others, we all appear to be having withdrawal from playing Diablo 4. Even Blizzard themselves have said it was the most successful beta of the franchise's history, with a massive 61.5 hours combined over the 2 beta weekends. So while I have been finding a cure to that dungeon itch, I have been looking into other gaming titles that could, at least, pass the time until Diablo 4 is out on the 6th of June. How to Cure the Diablo 4 Withdrawals The first thing anyone does, is Google some suggestions.  So I went into a deep dive on where to start looking to find that cure. The most obvious answers here, are Diablo II: Resurrected and Diablo 3. However, there were 2 ...

Hunt The Night – PC Review

Creators at Moonlight Games and publishers DANGEN Entertainment have created a beautiful 2-D pixel Gothic-styled game. That mixes fast gameplay with a dark fantasy world filled with danger and mystery. If you love the Castlevania aesthetic with a dash of Bloodborne. Then players should check out Hunt The Night when it drops on April 13th of this year from Steam. The night calls out. What pulled me in with Hunt The Night was the boss designs in the screenshots, they are stunning, and I'm hoping this is consistent throughout the game. I'm a sucker for dark fantasy worlds, especially when going against huge monstrosities created for twisted rituals or unlocking forbidden knowledge. Gameplay Players will explore Medhram as Vesper, a young, quiet girl raised in a group known as The Stal...

Blood Bowl III – PC Review

From Nacon publishing comes the next entry, Blood Bowl III, created by Cyanide Studios. Released on February 23rd this year, players get another shot at taking their teams to the top. You can pick up this strategy-RPG game on Xbox and PlayStation for £34.99 with the Brutal Edition for £49.99 or grab it on Steam for £24.99. A Switch port is currently in development, with a release planned sometime this year. All's fair in blood and Waaaagh! I was never good at sports games like Madden, Fifa or PGA tour. But I am good at a few strategy games, so Blood Bowl looked like my shot at being good at some sports without actually being good at them. A mixture of the NFL and Warhammer franchise, I look forward to bashing some skulls in with Da Boiz. Gameplay Players can choose to play either o...

Postal 4: No Regerts – PS5 Review

From the Developers at Running with Scissors that brought amazing titles such as Postal, Postal 2, and so on comes the latest in this epic franchise: Postal 4: No Regerts. With all the crude humour and hilarious one-liners that Postal fans know, remember, and expect from this series. Postal 4: No Regerts goes on to meet these expectations and somehow keeps the momentum going.   There has always been controversy to this game franchise purely from the satirical and crass humour. For example, Postal 2 was banned in Germany and New Zealand for the sheer amount of violence and animal "abuse". Postal 4: No Regerts, yes that's how it's spelt Are you a long-time Postal fan? Have you been looking forward to Postal 4: No Regerts on consoles? let us know in the comments below! Gamep...

Check it out today with three of your friends! Fuse Your Skills To Fit Your Style In Superfuse If you ask a random gamer what games come to mind when they think of the ARPG genre, I wouldn't doubt if Path of Exile and the Diablo series are among the first to note. Come to think of it I'm fairly certain Diablo was one of the first PC games I really got to play. I know I spent plenty of time in high school playing Diablo 2 online with my best friend as well. So I couldn't pass up the chance to check out Superfuse once I educat...
