Latest Reviews

  1. The Swords of Ditto Review The Swords of Ditto Review April 24, 2018 by Tom Olson The Swords of Ditto is without a doubt the best roguelike game to come out in 2018 thus far. Devolver Digital and onebitbeyond have once again really knocked it out of the park. For the low retail price, you really cannot go wrong with this picking up Ditto, especially if you have someone to play co-op with.
  2. The Division Backlog Review Why You Should Play The Division From Your Backlog April 23, 2018 by Ed Moreno The Division released in an unfinished state and was looking to be a flop, but that didn’t stop the developers from sticking with it and updating The Division in order to make it the game they envisioned. The Division is now in a better state than ever, providing complex RPG and Looting mechanics along with a third-person shooter experience that is unlike anything seen on the market thus far.
  3. A Way Out Review April 22, 2018 by M.R Darling Very few games capture your attention right from the beginning. A Way Out not only manages such a feat, but it maintains its hold throughout the rest of its six-hour campaign. Each scene blends into the next, with little downtime in between, leaving you with that ‘just one more’ feeling as you complete them.
  4. Why You Should Play Run-Gun-Jump-Gun From Your Backlog RunGunJumpGun Review April 21, 2018 by Aria Velz Run-Gun-Jump-Gun is a game that is unapologetic about what it is and what you should be doing. You want to run, and gun, and jump, and gun more? You got it. But you also get a game bursting with charm, excitement, and triumph. Nintendo Switch is filled with ports and arcade games, but few of them will give you the rush or satisfaction that RGJG packs.
