Alien & Predator: The Good and The Bad

The Alien franchise has been the cause of many a sleepless night since the first Alien film released back in 1979. In the four decades since, Alien — and its spin-off franchise, Predator — has become one of the most recognizable names in sci-fi horror, its influence extending outside of film into other realms of media. It should come as no surprise then that a brand as big as Alien would spawn video games. In … Read more

PUBG Mobile Guide: How to Grab a Chicken Dinner Every Time

PUBG Mobile looks just about like any other shooter. Except, well, it’s not. In fact, treating the more portable version of the progenitor of the battle royale genre, PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS, like any other shooter is the biggest mistake any gamer can make. The argument exists that it is this line of thinking that’s responsible for plenty of players to perform a lot worse than they do in PUBG Mobile compared to other shooters.  So, if … Read more

6 Side Quests So Good We Forgot the Main Game

Huh? What main mission?   Side missions are meant to be fun. Some journeys need embarking on, or some evil dictator needs toppling, but you can’t muster up the excitement to slog through the grand ordeal. Nobody likes to labour through fetch quests, escort missions, and the super obvious I-am-going-to-betray-you-later quests.  On the other hand, helping this an NPC you met on the side of the road find his lost horse sounds way more interesting. … Read more

Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey Review

Survival games have always been, in my opinion, the medium that bridges the exciting and new environment that the game will bring, with the cruel reality of survival that mimics real conditions out here in the real world. Games like This War of Mine that mimics survival during war times or Frostpunk, steampunk RTS that pits society against the cold. But if you were to tell me that I’ll be playing a game where I … Read more

Wolfenstein: Youngblood Review

It’s not unusual for iconic video game franchises to want to change directions and try something new. The only problem is, this doesn’t always work.  Whether it’s because the changes catered too much to capture a different audience segment and alienated the hardcore fans, or because there were simply just too many changes that it made the game less appealing to pretty much everyone, there exists a long list of video game franchises that took … Read more

Sinking City vs Call of Cthulhu – Who Pulled Off The Better Lovecraft Experience

  “The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.” Horror writer H.P Lovecraft was never quite the famous author during his lifetime (1890 to 1937). Instead, it was only many decades after his death that his works, which so-often revolved around the supernatural and the unknown, became somewhat of an archetype of multiple forms of media, from video games to novels, … Read more

Games with Bad Reception: Are They Still Bad?

Not every game hit it out of the ballpark the first time around. Some games stumble for months – even years – before finding their footing. The opportunities for valuable dialog afforded by social media means developers can quickly learn the weaknesses of their game, what works and doesn’t work, and take meaningful steps toward fixing their product.  This means the expected development time of a game extends far beyond the release date. A bad … Read more

From super assassins to masked vigilantes, stealth games offer a different experience from the rest of the genres.
