Chorus Review

A while back I got a chance to preview Chorus, a game I have been extremely excited about since it was first announced. How could I not be, after all? Space combat with some eldritch horrors that…

 Metro Exodus: Sam’s Story Review

Metro Exodus: Sam’s Story Review

Themes of finding a new home and accepting loss are common in post-apocalypse media. For the most part, Metro Exodus’ main storyline fulfills both of these pretty well. But, what if you were already…

Shenmue 3 Review

In 1999, if you couldn’t find me slammin’ some mad POGS, you would find me curled up on the couch playing one of the most niche games of the decade. Shenmue at its heart was a Japan simulator with…

Kingdom Come: Deliverance - The Amorous Adventures of Bold Sir Hans Capon Review – Fool's Errand

It’s no secret that Kingdom Come: Deliverance ends on a cliffhanger, as the developer’s PR Manager mentioned recently. To be more accurate, it ends with an “Epilogue” quest that’s a very obvious…

Kingdom Come: Deliverance - From the Ashes Review – Dust to Dust

As a backer and day-one player of Kingdom Come: Deliverance on PC, my experience was of a highly immersive and engrossing open world RPG. It was definitely flawed as a product, and it wobbled under…
