Niche - A Genetics Survival Game Review

Remember Spore? Remember how it didn't seem to satisfy that part of you that wanted to control the evolution of an entire species? Well Niche - A genetics survival game by Stray Fawn Studio succeeds where Spore failed! Created by a successful Kickstarter which raised over 70 000$.What can I say?  After being raised by Pokemon, just hearing the word "Evolution" has the same effect on me as a heavy narcotic, so I was eager to play this game, collect them all and stuff like that. I must say, I was disappointed, not because it's a bad game, it's just that

Darkwood Review

First of all, I apologize for the long wait, I just didn't have time to review games, but that should be changing now. Anyways I'll stop bitching and get into the review. Darkwood is a top-down horror game, which is kinda better presented while describing it, rather then actually playing it.When I first started playing Darkwood, it was the game's cast of macabre characters and its creepy, implicit storytelling that drew me in. From minute zero, it's clear that there's something deeply wrong with the forest that surrounds you. It stretches endlessly, leaving everything under its canopy shrouded in dim light,

The Trap of Lastability

Every gamer wants games to never end, trust me developers want you to play games for ever as well, but different games can vary in playtime wildly from 4 or 9 hours in a story or atmospheric game such as Wolfenstein 2 or Dishonored to 60 or 700 or nearly Infinite with games like Divinity 2 and Payday 2 and Overwatch. With such a huge difference it's sometimes easy to see how games go about their replayability and the length of their games, and while some games do not need any replay value other games have difficulty finding ways to elongate

Bring The Game Over bring the party to you!

Hey people, I'm SlipSlot, or Warren - you choose. One of the three-sliced pie that makes up the group of directors behind Opium Pulses. I live in a small and quiet town in England called Faringdon and some weeks ago I caught wind of an odd but interesting looking gaming event happening in my local area.Bring The Game Over, a local start-up was attending a charity focused event for Help For Heroes at a nearby pub (The Swan), promising retro classic gaming fun for all the family. I didn't look too much in to it but figured since it was nearby

Rhyfel's Comprehensive List of Life Changing Games

Don't worry this is not the typical "Top 100" list. Think of it more like a suggestion list of awesome games more than anything, this is a list of some of the games I have played over the many years, which I believe are detrimental to a thorough experience of what gaming truly has to offer. It includes titles from nearly every genre that have all provided gamers with unique experiences unparalleled at the time or since.These are not all the games I played, these are not all the necessary games either as I am sure I missed plenty. But these

How a game's difficulty can offer a lot more than just a challenge

A friend of mine recommended Nier to me and I can already tell the game has a lot to offer, I love Platinum so it's even easier to see how badass some parts of the game must be and the quality behind them. How ever when I started playing I encountered something that I had to stop to write about, and in this case I will be comparing it with Dark Souls 3. I know, everyone is sick of "The Dark Souls 3 of Platformers/Whatever" comparisons believe me I am too, specially since a lot of games DS3 gets compared to

Prevent The Fall Review

Today I review a game called Prevent The Fall, a dungeon crawler that doesn't really offer anything unique and feels more like a mobile game.Prevent The Fall is a dungeon-crawling RPG built both for Virtual reality and regular controls, which is certainly an unusual thing. You will impersonate a random hero and raid various dungeons and locations to complete quests given to you by an anonymous tavern-keeper. Along the way, you slay monsters and loot some equipment. The regular day of a hero, basically. And that's pretty much it, it gets repetitive quickly, and in my first 30 mins of playing I

Offensive Combat: Redux! Review

Offensive Combat: Redux is a reboot, if you will, of a web-based shooter in which you try to frag as many other players as you can.As written before it's a reboot of a web-based shooter, arena shooter to be exact.There are a few different game modes, so you aren't always on your own, but these types of games tend to lend themselves to lone wolves. Three Gates AB have resurrected this cult classic and released it as a standalone, downloadable game. It kinda has that Quake 3 feeling in it but with more cartoony graphics. There's a lot of customization options and a lot
