STAR WARS LEGION – STORMTROOPERS UNIT EXPANSION

It would be impossible for the Star Wars Legion game to exist without the existence of the humble Imperial Stormtrooper. An essential part of the Star Wars universe (and an ever-present sight at pretty much any geek convention ever), the Stormtrooper is as much a well-known figure as Darth Vader or Luke Skywalker. Of course, … Continued

SONGBRINGER

The excellently-named Roq Epimetheos is part of the crew from the Songbringer – a group of intergalactic hard-partying funsters who scavenge the planets by day and party by night. After a bolt of lightning throws Roq to the nearby planet surface, he wakes up to find something mysterious is going on… Songbringer very much takes … Continued

RUNNER 3

Runner 3 is, as you might expect, the third Runner game which itself is part of the wider 1980s-themed BIT.TRIP series that first appeared back in 2009. Central character Commander Video returns for this instalment, which expands on previous Runner games by adding new mechanics, vehicles, and a huge array of unlockables, side missions, and … Continued

VAMPYR

A dark figure stalks a woman amid the misty streets of London. As she enters a back alley, he strikes, snapping her neck and draining her blood. It’s a moment repeated a thousand times over, but Vampyr asks two important questions: What led to this point, and how will this affect the vampire himself? The … Continued

SEGA GENESIS CLASSICS

Sega Genesis Classics should have been an easy thing to release. All it needed was to repackage its 16-bit success stories, put them on a single disc and release them into the world. By all accounts, it was an easy task, but Sega screwed things up so badly that you would be forgiven for thinking … Continued

SMOKE AND SACRIFICE

Yes, it’s another survival game. Short of zombies, RPG Maker clones or Rust-style competitive base building, these have come to dominate most release schedules and Early Access lists. However, as with all things there are a few gems amid the generic and unfinished games, with Smoke and Sacrifice being one of the most notable of … Continued

DETROIT: BECOME HUMAN

Detroit: Become Human is a perfect example of how to mishandle science fiction. It steps into the near future, attempts to utilise parallels or allegories to promote messages, and then pulls its punches the moment it might have something to say. As a result, you are left with a beautiful game with good ideas, but … Continued

PIZZA TITAN ULTRA

You play as a giant pizza delivering attack mecha. That line alone should be enough to tell you whether you will love this game or not, as Pizza Titan Ultra is unabashedly exaggerated, cheesy and cartoonish in its every second of gameplay. Framed as something you might have seen on Toonami back in the 90s, … Continued

ANCESTORS LEGACY

Promoting itself on real-time combat, kingdom building and historical accuracy, Ancestors Legacy offers an odd mix of RTS and empire management. With a multitude of factions to control from the Saxons to the Slavs, it seemed set to offer a variant of the genre bereft of the elements which usually drives away casual fans. Unfortunately, … Continued

FHTAGN! – TALES OF THE CREEPING MADNESS

You have to wonder how Lovecraft might have reacted if he could see the Cthulhu Mythos now. While revered and respected for its accomplishments, the verbose author’s creations have led to plush toys, webcomics and internet memes. Also video games, such as today’s example. Fhtagn! – Tales of the Creeping Madness! is a game where … Continued
