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.

Bit Dungeon Plus Review

It's not very often that I play a Rogue-like game and really feel like it does justice to the genre. I wish this could be one of those times.

Call of Duty is going back to WWII – Is that a good call?

It honestly feels like we're watching the Call of Duty franchise take ten steps forward, and nine steps back.

Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom Review

Welcome to Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom, a game with a slightly confusing plot, and with so much good content, it really is hard to find a thing I don't like about it, save for the few that I've selected. But we'll get around to that. The story of Shiness: TLK is one that is centered around Chado, an odd bear like creature that is following a Shiness – one of the primordial beings of Shi – whilst being accompanied by his friend Poky.

Ever been stung by a scorpion? It’s not fun, but Project Scorpio technical specs really take the edge off!

Today the technical specs of the Project Scorpio were finally released, much to the desire of console gamers, and oh what a desirable set of specs it is!

Blue-Collar Astronaut Review

Because nothing says fun like paying off $50,000 of student loans! Welcome to Blue-Collar Astronaut, the game that will make you question if you'll ever escape the debt that cripples you. And by that, I mean the student loans you had to take out to become a pilot for your own spaceship. This is about 50,000 of the in-game space currency, if you go for the master degree, and it will take you quite an amount of years to pay them off.

NeuroVoider Review

This is a different type of brain game. Welcome to NeuroVoiders, a Rogue-Lite twin-stick shooter about brains in giant mech suits. The game makes you progress through five levels in between boss fights of increasing difficulty, as you shoot and loot yourself to the final boss. You will die quite frequently, and you might even throw one or two controllers in your frustration, but it's rather unlikely that you won't pick them back up for another run.

Forma.8 Review

Forma.8 is a new Metroidvania style title from Mixedbag Productions, where you play as a drone searching for a new power source on a foreign planet. But is it any good?

Pit People Impressions – Xbox One Game Preview

Gah, the wait has been un-bear-able! The Behemoth are back with another tasty treat - this time it's called Pit People, and it is positively brimming with potential. As you could probably guess, the game is out as an Xbox One Game Preview title, and it is shaping up to be a quality RPG with tasteful comedy backing it.

For Honor Beta Impressions

For Honor will soon be releasing on Xbox One, PS4 and PC...but how did the recent Closed Beta go?

Pixel Heroes: Byte and Magic Review

Back in my day, RPGs didn't fill the screen to the edges, so it's nice to return to that design. Welcome to Pixel Heroes: Byte and Magic, a game designed like the RPGs of old. That means big chunky pixels, and cute animations! The game is also as linear as an arrow, so no worries about those winding paths that were more often than not found in newer games.

Toby: The Secret Mine Review

Some days I wonder what Peter Pan's shadow does on his days off... Today I finally got my answer! Toby: The Secret Mine is a spiritual sibling of Limbo, following a little silhouette on his adventure to save his friends from denizens of the deep. As you can probably guess, all of the storytelling is pantomimed and it is left to you to guess what takes place in the exchanges between you and the red-eyed creatures. They are highly hostile, and resemble your shape, so they might be the same creatures as you, but corrupted by whatever power their leader has.

Gigantic Hands-on Preview

Some of you might be wondering what Gigantic is, and I would say a description of something massive. For those of you who aren't interested in measurements, I would say it is a game with fantastic potential.

Bridge Constructor Stunts Review

Civil Engineering has never been so awesome! This is Bridge Constructor Stunts, a game about building bridges to complete Hollywood-esque stunts and tricks, whilst completing the objectives of each course. You have a budget for each level, and three different materials to help you complete the most epic of stunts!

Silence Review

Well, that's what Silence sounds like! Welcome to the game of Silence, a game about dealing with tragedy, serving as a reminder of what puzzle games used to be.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition Review

In a Game of Scrolls, you either win or die! For those of you who haven't heard, Skyrim is back and better than ever! The Special Edition is breathing new life into an already lively game, adding in crispy 1080p graphics, running at a lovely solid 30 FPS. Besides snazzy new graphics and optimizations, the game now sports modibility for consoles, allowing for new and innovative content from the community.
