Orwell: Ignorance is Strength Review

Orwell: Ignorance is Strength is the next season for the well-known “Big-Brother” simulator. Joining the Orwell program as a new agent you’re tasked with various different cases to solve and put together. If you’re into games with immersive gameplay, and bring out a great story, this is the title for you.


My Lovely Daughter Review

My Lovely Daughter left me a miserable mess by the time I finished my first playthrough, and it’s exactly what I loved from the game. Not many games take the risk of potentially disturbing their audience for the sake of telling a narrative they feel necessary, and the simple but enjoyable gameplay means that there is fun to be had in the midst of a horrifyingly compelling story.


Kingdom Come: Deliverance Review

KCD is the definition of a niche RPG, and it wobbles under the weight of its ambition. It is committed to thrust upon the player a lofty, extravagant experience of immersive simulation and realism that most gamers are probably not interested in, but those who are into the complex machinery of RPG systems and interactions will have their hands very full with it and get their money’s worth in both quality and quantity.


Why You Should Play Mafia III From Your Backlog

While the Grand Theft Auto and other titans of the industry are pushing open world games into the future Mafia III manages to dominate a smaller corner of the market. It may not look up to scratch but the attention to detail in New Bordeaux and the time period it inhabits brings a fresh perspective to gaming as a whole.


Why You Should Play Stardew Valley From Your Backlog

The farming genre, on paper, doesn’t sound like it would hook a player in the same way that an explosive action-adventure or sprawling fantasy epic might. Give it a chance to get its claws in, however, and you might never escape. Stardew Valley isn’t just one to watch; it’s one to play over and over again until your farm has become its own agricultural empire. Even then, you probably won’t want to stop.


The Council Review

The Council is a game with plenty of issues. But if you can look past them, you’ll find one hell of an intriguing story that will leave you wanting more and to discover more mysteries,


All Walls Must Fall Review

All Walls Must Fall is a stylish time travel noir packed with interesting ideas and arresting visuals, but its beauty is barely even skin deep. Under all its visual flair is a repetitive turn-based strategy game that squanders its best mechanics and undersells its imaginative setting.


Why Lost Castle Should Stay in Your Backlog

As a fan of roguelike games, I expected to enjoy Lost Castle. With so many items and weapons to choose from, I thought I’d be running through the dungeons repeatedly. Unfortunately, a lack of balance and engaging gameplay, along with a lackluster story, prevents Lost Castle from being better than the sum of its parts. The soundtrack is pretty catchy, though.


Warhammer: Vermintide 2 Review

With Warhammer: Vermintide 2, Fatshark has improved upon their original game in almost every single way. From more enemy types to a slew of new weapons to try out, you’ll have an exhilarating time slaughtering Skaven and Rotblood alike.
