Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League Review

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is a bit of a mixed bag.

THE FINALS Review

With time, I suspect THE FINALS will blossom into an upper echelon first person shooter.

The Game Awards Hits Different in Person

There is an energy to The Game Awards that doesn't fully shine through on the screen.

Lake: Season’s Greetings Review

I enjoyed my time revisiting Providence Oaks in Lake: Season's Greetings. The loveable characters, heartwarming story and classic Christmas tone make this well worth a pick-up over the Holiday season, even if some technical qualms hold it back from tree-topping star status.

Bright Memory: Infinite Review

The story is hard to follow but the gameplay more than makes up for its shortcomings. From the solid gunplay to the fun genre mashups, Bright Memory: Infinite is undeniably a fun time.

Is The Movie Theatre the Future of Games Events?

Enter Geoff Keighley and his Summer Game Fest. A month-long celebration of games, Keighley once again hosted a kick-off to the show. However, this year, it came with a little twist. For viewers in select regions of the United States and Canada, the show would be played in IMAX format at local multiplexes.

Batman vs Bugs Bunny – Hands-on with MultiVersus

A game where Batman and Bugs Bunny team up to fight Shaggy and Arya Stark is just such a cool concept. Fingers crossed the final Multiversus product sticks the landing.

Hands-on with the heavy metal music of Metal: Hellsinger

Enter Metal: Hellsinger, a heavy metal musical FPS that takes as much inspiration from the Guitar Heroes of the world as the Dooms and Call of Dutys.

Century: Age of Ashes Review

Century: Age of Ashes is an undeniably fun time. From the gorgeous graphics to the fun gameplay to the decently fair monetization, there is a lot to love here.

Game Cross-Overs: Trendy or Tacky?

One trend, which is in some regards truly representative of this strange new industry, is the prevalence of game and media crossovers. Halo Doomed: The Fallout of the Perfectly Dark Prey of Castle Wolfenstein when?

The Anacrusis has the potential to blossom into something great

The Anacrusis is definitely one to watch. It has great style, some clever AI and some exceptionally designed levels. However, it still needs to nail down some of the basics to reach the lofty heights of its inspiration.

Among Us Review

Among Us is a great game. It has kept people connected over the pandemic. It's a hoot with friends and randoms. I have played a ton of matches for a reason. But Among Us on console, while still the same great core game, is nowhere near as enjoyable when played with a controller.

Rune Factory 4 Special Review

Xbox owners are in for a treat with Rune Factory 4 Special. A masterwork of an RPG, this is a game you can easily spend real-life days playing away. A perfect fit for fans of Rune Factory and Animal Crossing, as well as an exciting action JRPG for fans of old-school Zelda, there is something in this game for everyone. While the port from 3DS to Xbox isn't exactly the most graceful, after a few hours, it's unlikely you will care.

Lemnis Gate Review – Loopy Deaths

Lemnis Gate is a very pleasant surprise. A unique, strategic mind-bending FPS, it is mechanically strong and content-rich. There are still some technical issues that need to be resolved and the progression system is very stingy, but what is here is a hidden gem.

Lost in Random Review – Chance at Greatness?

Lost in Random is a very unique game. It has great writing and some of the best art direction of the year. However, the combat system plays a risky gamble that I don't feel quite works out in the game's favour. Still, if you're willing to look past the combat or if its particular eccentricities hit the spot for you, there is a lot to love here.

The Artful Escape Review – Sweet Escape

The Artful Escape is well worth the wait. An exciting, well-acted feast for the senses, it does not disappoint. There are a couple of technical issues that need to be sorted, but on the whole, games this imaginative and enthralling don't come along very often.

Riders Republic Preview – Radical Ridin’

Riders Republic has made a strong first impression. The game is just a blast to play and I think its blend of extreme sports edge and crazy customization will go over very well. In many ways it feels like it looked to Steep and built upon it, resulting in an exciting next step for developer Ubisoft Annecy.

Twelve Minutes Review – If I Could Turn Back Time

Ultimately, I had a good time with Twelve Minutes. It's a game that is able to usher forth a great narrative experience and a refreshing change of pace. It's one to give a whirl through Game Pass as while it won't be for everyone, it will connect with a lot of people.

Taking a look at the trippy stylings of The Artful Escape

While the start of the year was looking kinda barren for Xbox, the latter half of the year is quickly looking to make up for any shortcomings. Death's Door and Microsoft Flight Simulator were released to widespread acclaim. The Ascent has just launched and shows tremendous promise. 12 Minutes looks incredibly promising. Of course, I'd also be remiss not to mention two little games called Forza Horizon 5 and Halo Infinite. However, sandwiched between these incredibly promising games is The Artful Escape, the debut title from Beethoven and Dinosaur.
