Vote or Die! – Not a Hero Review

May 22, 2015

The best shoot-the-bad-guy-in-the-face simulator I’ve ever played Upon my first impressions of Not a Hero, UK based developer Roll 7’s new cover-based shooter, it looks like the bloodiest Atari game you’ve never seen. The music and graphics are very retro, but there is a lot more depth to Not a Hero than the aesthetic. The presentation is...

Life is Strange Episode 3: Chaos Theory Review – Paradigm Shift

Life is Strange Episode 3: Chaos Theory Review – Paradigm Shift

May 22, 2015

Life is Strange heralds its midpoint with secrets, emotions, and new abilities that change everything. Episodic games are a really interesting phenomenon in making me remember the mistakes I made. Upon starting up Life is Strange Episode 3: Chaos Theory, I was immediately reminded of the riveting and heartbreaking ending of the previous episode, itself an...

Technobabylon Review – The World To Come

May 20, 2015

Seriously, I’ve written more reviews than I care to count at this point, and I pride myself on being fairly good at giving each one some kind of decent, occasionally funny...

The initial release as an early access product is like a first album, made with shoddy recording equipment by band members still in need of practice and experience. Over time, though, more tours are held, and more...

Hyperdimension Neptunia U: Action Unleashed Review

May 15, 2015

Hey, you got your Senran Kagura in my Hyperdimension Neptunia   Hyperdimension Neptunia U: Action Unleashed marks several firsts for the quirky, game industry spoofing Neptunia saga. For starters, it’s the first title in the series to be developed by Senran Kagura and Battle Arena Toshinden creator Tamsoft, rather than series creator Compile Heart....

Dex Review

Dex Review

May 14, 2015

That’s one Dexy lady!   When watching a trailer for Dex, the first thing that came to my mind was the classic early nineties run-and-jumper Flashback, with the 2D platforming and futuristic setting. However, when getting into Dex, I quickly found out it was infinitely – and excitingly – more ambitious. It’s surely no coincidence the...
