Deiland: Pocket Planet edition

Deiland: Pocket Planet Edition Review

Review
Deiland: Pocket Planet edition looks to the cosmos but gets pulled in by the inexorable pull of planets - leaving you to crash land after just a few hours. While the rebuild can be fun, the waiting often isn’t worth it

Evil Corp

Evil Corp Board Game Review

Review
Evil Corp grabs a little bit of Monopoly and adds a little philosophy. Does its theming pull up the game to notoriety or push it into infamy?

Disco Elysium

"Just Remember That You've Made It This Far": The Story Behind Disco Elysium

I Saw Black Clouds

I Saw Black Clouds Review

Review
As a player, I often felt appeased I Saw Black Clouds, like a child pretending to play their older siblings console. The controller is off and they’re really in charge but I certainly feel like I’ve done something. I Saw Black Clouds isn’t worth perpetuating that facade for. Sometimes, you’re just better off putting the controller down and walking away

Razer Huntsman V2 Analog

Razer Huntsman V2 Analog Review

Review
The Razer Huntsman V2 Analog is quite expensive, fairly heavy, and uses two USB slots, but they are sacrifices I'm more than willing to make for one of the very best keyboards on the market.

PowerA Fusion Pro

PowerA Fusion Pro Wireless PS4 Controller Review

Review
With great customizability and lots of cool functions, the PowerA Fusion Pro generally just a very solid controller. Although it has a steep price tag, it is worth every penny.

Immortals Fenyx Rising: Myths of the Eastern Realm Review

Review
This could be to Immortals what Spider-Man: Miles Morales is to Spider-Man — A fresh, tight, bite-sized piece of what makes the base game so likeable.

Neurodeck Review

Review
Neurodeck is a truly fascinating game. Playing against your own fears, it attempts to offer quite a lot. Does it pay off or does it fail to scare?

Razer Viper 8khz

Razer Viper 8khz Comparison

Review
If you're new to the market and are looking to get a Viper, I can't see a logical reason to not get the Viper 8khz for the exact same price. If you already have a Viper, it's not quite worth the trade-up just yet.

Wraith: The Oblivion - Afterlife

Wraith: The Oblivion - Afterlife Preview

Preview
Wraith: The Oblivion - Afterlife is another attempt at a good game in the World of Darkness. If it continues on the path it is on, it could actually do it
