I'm an aspiring author who absolutely loves video games. I've written two books with plenty down the tube and decided to do a bit of video game journalism to ultimately get more intimate with a community that I've used as a resource to avoid bad games.

Hands-on with… Extinction!

Welcome to Extinction, a game centered around a world on the brink of destruction.

Mutant Football League Review

Let's get ready to RUMBLE! Welcome to Mutant Football League, the greatest football league this side of Andromeda! For those of you who haven't been initiated to the way we operate things here at the MFL, we are an inter-species football league that allows all forms of night-spooks to compete in a competitive form of football, the likes of which you've never seen!

Ultimate Chicken Horse Review

You know, I was never any good at horse. I could never get thrilled enough to play it, I thought it needed more danger, more camaraderie, more cuddly creatures, and possibly also some hardcore platforming.

Skyforge – Tales from the Xbox One Game Preview

They say that with great power comes greater blockbuster films, or even some strange ethical dilemma that will challenge your running monologues. Or, you could be living inside of an MMO where there are countless others who have your powerset, and you're just the new recruit.

Mutant Football League – Xbox One Preview

Mutant Football League is a game that is reminiscent of the National Football League of America (and possibly London if some people have their way), but with a very large difference: You're playing as ghouls, skeletons, aliens, and demons!

Dungeons 3 Review

It has certainly been a long time since we've had a good dungeon builder game. I don't mean that to be rude to those that have attempted it, but when you look at all of the games to have come out in the genre, nothing really triumphs over the Dungeon Keeper games from Bullfrog Studios. Now that Bullfrog has been dead for well over a decade, a lot of developers have picked scraps from their legacy and tried to succeed in improving them. Many have tried, and quite a few have failed to do anything, save for falling short. However, in the case of Realmforge Studios, this isn't one of those stories.

Deer Hunter: Reloaded Review

Welcome to Deer Hunter: Reloaded, a game that has you shooting more sheep than actual deer.

Slayaway Camp: Butcher’s Cut Review

Welcome to Slayaway Camp: Butcher's Cut, a sliding puzzle game that is themed around the player controlling the serial killer in a horror film.

RAID: World War II Review

Welcome to RAID: World War II, a four-player team-based FPS that takes place across the second World War. You are part of the RAID Operation, a group of sanctioned assaults against the Third Reich, doing anything you can to hurt Hitler and his operations. You play as one of four characters, each of their own nationality, that are tasked with completing some very ungentlemanly things as you compete in what can only be described as the smartest use of the Payday formula! Or rather, that's what I thought, at first.

N++ Review

This game needs a warning: Perfectionists, do not buy it unless you are sure you want to play well over 4000 levels as you try to get every gold possible. I know, it's a long warning, but it's true.

Mages of Mystralia Review

Hello, and welcome to a very special meeting of the Wizard's Court. As you may all be wondering, we've come together to talk about the Mages of Mystralia, and particularly about a little redheaded girl by the name of Zia. She accidentally set her house, or rather her uncle's home, ablaze and was exiled from her village. Cast out and afraid - for the inquisition that controls these lands particularly despises mages - she is found by an older mage who takes her in to refine her skills and allow her to become a true mage.

Rock of Ages II: Bigger & Boulder Review

Are you ready to rock? Welcome to Rock of Ages II: Bigger & Boulder! This is a sequel to the historically accurate military bowling game that rolled out in 2011, where we followed the tale of Sisyphus using his boulder to fight his way out of hell. I think. The jury is still out on whether or not that was just a daydream while he was on a break.

BLACKHOLE: Complete Edition Review

Welcome to BLACKHOLE: Complete Edition, a hardcore-platformer with world rotation mechanics. You follow some random crew member on a ship that was sent to close blackholes around the galaxy. You're pretty much the intern that nobody likes, and that is shown in your first mission which is to get the captain some coffee, right before the main game kicks off.

Mr. Shifty Review

The name's Shifty, Mr. Shifty. Welcome to Mr. Shifty, a game developed by Team Shifty and published by tinyBuild. You play as Mr. Shifty, a teleporting thief who is sent into a building to steal Mega Plutonium before it can be used for dastardly deeds. Your original attempts are thwarted and you must fight your way through each level of an evil corporation as you try to take out Mr. Stone, the CEO of the company. You will find yourself fighting your way through the minions that inhabit each floor, slowly unlocking more dangerous obstacles as you overcome the problems that cover your path. Whether it be minions holding pistols, or brutes toting rocket launchers, you can assure yourself that you will find it as you make your way to the top. And you'll probably die quite frequently, too.

Gigantic Review

Welcome to Gigantic, the MOBA game from Motiga that I briefly covered in our Not-So-Gigantic preview from last year. Well, as luck would have it, the game is now fully released and available to the masses as a free-to-play title on the Xbox Store and Steam, with the option to pay for the Founder's Pack, which gives access to all current and future heroes without having to unlock them by way of in-game currency.

Crossout Review

If you like the concept of being Mad Max, than you'll probably enjoy this game. Crossout is a free to play game that is centred around vehicular PvP in an apocalyptic wasteland. It is structured very similarly to the PC game Robocraft, but has improved massively on the overall concept.

Lock’s Quest Review

Lock him up boys, he's gearing for an escape! Welcome to Lock's Quest, a game that you might have played previously, and then promptly forgotten about it because it was a Nintendo DS game.

Dragon Bros Review

Welcome to Dragon Bros, the platforming bullet-hell you didn't know you wanted.

Enter The Gungeon Review

Welcome to the Gungeon - and prepare to enter a world of bullets and guns so ravaging they'll make your head explode. That, or the bullet from that Sniper really did a number on you. Enter The Gungeon is a Rogue-like game, similar to that of Binding of Isaac and requires the player to shoot n' loot their way through each floor, killing sentient bullets that wish to do the player harm.
