God of War Review – Shattered Chains of the Past (PS4)

It’s been a long five years since the last main entry to the venerable God of War franchise. The ending of God of War III left a little room for continuation of the series, but with the events that had transpired, a return to ancient Greece would have required Herculean…

Super Daryl Deluxe Review – Weirdly Charming (PS4)

Super Daryl Deluxe is a trippy brawler mixed with role-playing progression that takes place in the weirdest high school to ever exist. Players take on the role of Daryl, a teenager that makes Napoleon Dynamite look like Rico Suave by comparison. Rather than beating up a bunch of school kids, the…

Gal*Gun 2 Review – Wet and Wild (PS4)

It’s no secret that anime can exist with an odd perpendicularity to porn. Most shows seem obsessed with jiggling breasts, while many revolve around an adolescent boy finding himself in a harem of cute girls. There’s a market for this stuff, and I’m man enough to admit that on occasion,…

Extinction Review – Attack of the Titans (PS4)

The second colossus hunting adventure in as many weeks arrives on the PlayStation Store, although the majestic colossi have been replaced with hideous ogres. From the team at Iron Galaxy, mostly known for their port work and post-launch content for Killer Instinct, comes Extinction, a fast-paced action title that has you…

Infernium Review – Desolate Hell (PS4)

There have been a lot of depictions of hell throughout all art ever made. Developer Carlos Coronado asks: what if hell were a beautiful place, filled with horrors out in the open? Wouldn’t the worst torture be to exist in a lost paradise, where your time is woefully short and…

Minit Review – Time After Time (PS4)

Folks, give me a moment of your time—a minute, if you will—to discuss one of the latest titles in the indie scene. From Jan Willem Nijman (of Vlambeer), Kitty Calis (with work on Horizon Zero Dawn), Jukio Kallio (video game music composer), and Dominik Johann (of Crows Crows Crows) comes…

Bridge Constructor Stunts Review – Better Suited to Mobile (PS4)

Originally an iOS game released back in September of 2015, Bridge Constructor Stunts was a follow-up to the popular Bridge Constructor series. The first physics-based puzzle game wasn’t originally a mobile title, even though the series has gained a strong foothold in the Android and iOS market. In March 2014 Bridge…
