Alexander Leleux

Alexander grew up with a controller in his hand and remains the annoyance of his gaming friends for being ‘that guy’ who continues to use one even when he’s playing on his PC. By day, he is a graduate student in medieval literature and a freelance writer. By night, he is an avid gamer, hobbyist, and victim of an unhealthy Warhammer addiction. With a passion for stories of all kinds, he firmly believes that video games are an excellent means of communicating a narrative and hopes to one day make his own mark on the Gaming Industry.

Blasphemous Review

Blasphemous is a truly unforgettable experience that stands out in the Metroidvania genre.

SONG OF HORROR Preview

While it may have been only a brief preview, Song of Horror shows genuine promise for what could be a very successful horror game.

DARQ Review

Charming and twisted, DARQ is a fantastic and immersive experience that doesn’t overstay its welcome. 

TINY METAL: FULL METAL RUMBLE Review

Another fantastic spiritual successor to the beloved Advance Wars and a noticeable improvement from its previous title, Tiny Metal: Full Metal Rumble is a must buy if you’re looking for something to scratch that turn-based tactical strategy itch. 

Steel Division 2 Review

Eugen Systems’s Steel Division 2 is an incredibly detailed and immersive RTS game, but its lacking content and virtually non-existent accessibility makes this a hard sell for anyone outside of Eugen’s fanbase.

WOUNDED Review

Wound is a visually striking and atmospheric indie title that needed better core mechanics.

Expansion - Hearts of Iron IV: Man the Guns Review

Man the Guns is a solid addition to the Hearts of Iron IV DLC line, offering excellent reworks and new components to core aspects.

Warhammer: Chaosbane Preview

Though it’s not intended to launch until this summer, OPNoobs was given the opportunity to preview Eko Software’s Warhammer: Chaosbane, a love letter to the Diablo franchise set in the grimdark atmosphere of Games Workshop’s Warhammer Fantasy universe. Despite having only the bones to show us for now, Chaosbane is shaping up to be an enjoyable addition to both the Warhammer franchise and the dungeon-crawler genre.

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 Review

Fans and veterans of the 40k universe will no doubt enjoy Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2, while it’s certainly still worth a look for newcomers interested in spaceship warfare.

RESIDENT EVIL 2 / BIOHAZARD RE:2 Review

A true remake in every sense of the word, Capcom’s 2019 Resident Evil 2 captures the heart of the original in a wonderful recreation.

MONSTER HUNTER: WORLD Review

The first of its kind to be delivered to the salivating grasp of PC gamers, Monster Hunter: World has been well worth the wait as it delivers a breathtaking experience through a near-flawless port.

DARK SOULS: REMASTERED Review

Dark Souls: Remastered is a mediocre remaster for a fantastic title that ultimately may or may not be worth it for PC gamers.

Agony Review

Agony is a survival horror title that serves as a bold interpretation of biblical hell, crushed by a monolith of technical problems and unpolished design.
