  • King Oddball PS4 review

    While the physics puzzler has come into a renaissance of sorts thanks to a bunch of grumpy avians, the subsequent deluge of wannabe games has proven to be less than inspiring for the most part.

  • Strike Suit Zero: Director's Cut Review - great mechanics that lack variety

    The list of genre types to grace the PlayStation 4 is narrowing each week, and Strike Suit Zero: Director’s Cut fills in the blank for outer space fighters.

  • The Witch and the Hundred Knight Review: Disgaea-killer this is not

    So, imagine you wake up from a long slumber, stretch your arms and legs, clear your eyes of Mr. Sandman’s sprinkles, and find out you’re a slave. No thoughts, no willpower, just a mindless repeating of combat for a cruel, sadistic overseer. That is exactly the feeling I got from The Witc...
