Dungeon Rushers Review

Dungeon Rushers is a ton of fun to play. The tactical battles, the plundering of dungeons for loot galore and goofy dialogue all add to the pleasure of playing the game. In addition, the easy to use dungeon creation tools with a multiplayer ranking system mean that players will continue to create and modify an elaborate assortment of dungeons for you to explore, loot and plunder.

Realm of Shadows is a great marriage between Telltale Games and the Batman Universe. Each scene makes you feel like you’re playing in a comic book, art direction is strong, music adds the appropriate touch, and voice acting is especially good. I'm excited to don the suits for further exploration, but I also hope Telltale shakes up the formula and works out the bugs in the next episode.

Total War: WARHAMMER Review

Creative Assembly’s Total War: Warhammer is my nerd dream come to fruition, and I will mine this game for everything that it is worth and relish each campaign, battle, and empire-building turn in all of its fantastical nature.

Dungeon Rushers Early Access Review

Dungeon Rushers is a lot of fun to play. The tactical battles, the plundering of dungeons for loot galore, and the goofy dialogue, all add to the pleasure of playing the game. Sure, Dungeon Rushers is filled to the brim with nostalgia, but it is also a blast to play. Go ahead. Embrace the “one more turn” mindset.

Silver Bullet: Prometheus Review

Sure, it runs fine (it is a mobile port). I never had any crashes, the controls always worked, and I never had to reload. But just because something works and can be played does not mean that it should, and Silver Bullet: Prometheus lands squarely in that category. Folks, it is not worth your money.

Man O' War: Corsair Early Access Review

As a Warhammer fanatic (I have both Fantasy and 40k miniatures), Man O’ War: Corsair is shaping up to be a fantastic sandbox-esque game. Even with it being in early access and missing a few important aspects, it is a straight up roller coaster ride to play.

Not Your Average Gamer

Go ahead and picture your average gamer. What do you see? What images first come to mind? A pimple-faced teenager holed up in his room playing World of Warcraft?

Campaign Funds to Your (Steam) Wallet

We’ve all heard about various misuses of public and campaign funds from US political figures. Someone sending hush money to their mistress. Someone bribing an official to get law passed or to turn a blind eye. And then there are the little things: food, travel and booze. But what about video games?

Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem Review

It’s hard to decide what to critique and what to let slide due to Wolcen’s current alpha stage.
