Doctor Cat Review

We lay down on Doctor Cat’s couch and found ourselves dozing off.

For the Warp Review

There’s a Hall of Fame when it comes to deckbuilding roguelikes, and For the Warp visits the hall rather than cements its place.

Botany Manor Review

While it’s a smaller variety of plant, Botany Manor is inordinately pretty and comforting.

Ario Review

Ario is undeniably slapdash, but it’s capable of being fun.

The Fun Comes Back to Space Games with Rebel Galaxy Outlaw on Xbox One, PS4 and Switch

Time to come clean: I find space sims a bit clinical and boring. But Rebel Galaxy Outlaw is a game that looks like it knows how to have fracking fun.

Top 10 Walking Simulators on Xbox One

If you’re a fan of walking simulators, then the name probably sticks in the throat, but let’s ‘own it’ and chuck the best and mightiest of the genre into a bear pit and let them have at it! Hoo-rah! As with most genre lists, there’s some controversy about what does or doesn’t constitute a walking simulator. Dialogue and navigation is preferred over puzzles and more intensive interaction like combat or QTEs. Jumping/crouching is positively frowned upon. Strap on your hiking boots and let’s ramble!

The Secret Order: Return to the Buried Kingdom Surfaces on Xbox One, Switch and PS4

You may not be aware that there are eight (go on, count ‘em) Secret Order games, with this - The Secret Order: Return to the Buried Kingdom - the eighth, launching on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Switch today.

Retro Platformer Tamiku hops onto Xbox One, Switch and PlayStation 4

You just know that Tamiku’s developer Josyan has a crate of NES and Commodore 64 games tucked under his CRT. Tamiku doesn’t just look like a game from that era: it’s got to be a lost NES cartridge that’s only just been restored.

Two Legs are Better Than One in Biped, New for Xbox One and PlayStation 4

If you’ve fallen out with your partner during lockdown, why not bring them back on side with a co-op game of Biped? It’s collaborative, it’s family friendly, it’s got funny walks. It’s everything you need in two colourful, robotic packages.

Friday the 13th: Killer Puzzle is on Xbox One and Switch: Vorhees a Jolly Good Puzzler

Not to be mistaken as a puzzle expansion for the 2017 slasher game (although, that would be fabulous), Friday the 13th: Killer Puzzle is it’s own standalone killer. Fusing sliding puzzle shenanigans with the mother-loving movie monster, it’s probably not the mix of games you were expecting this Halloween. Disappointingly NOT dropping on a Friday the 13th, Killer Puzzle instead launches on Xbox One and Switch, with a PS4 release down the line.

Harvest Moon: Light of Hope SE Finally Brings the Series to Xbox One!

No, Mad Dash doesn’t count: Harvest Moon, the mainline series, finally makes its debut on Xbox One today, after taking its merry old time on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4.

Friday the 13th: Killer Puzzle Review

Friday the 13th: Killer Puzzle on Xbox One is a step up from Slayaway Camp, but only a single, shambling step. If you’ve not had the chance to play the original then this is the superior entry point, filled to bursting with sliding puzzles from a developer that’s mastered the craft. You’ll be leaving behind a body count that would make Jason (and his mum) proud.

Welcome to Elk is a Danish Delight on Xbox One and PC via Steam

There aren’t too many biographical adventure games out there, but Triple Topping Games are looking to change that with the release of Welcome to Elk on Xbox One and PC via Steam.

Vampire’s Fall: Origins is an Old School RPG with Bite on Xbox One and Switch

If you’re like us, you have an old-school RPG itch that has to be scratched every so often. Baldur’s Gate III is some way off, so it falls to Vampire’s Fall: Origins to bring some 2d12 satisfaction.

Become Cannon Fodder while on Dog Duty on Xbox One, Switch, PC and PS4

Soldiers! Are you gunning for another tour of duty in a real-time tactics game? Then volunteer for Dog Duty, available now on Microsoft Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC.

Party Panic Review

There’s a lot to love in Party Panic. It’s garish and hilarious, and there’s so much value in its many game modes and 33 minigames. But boil away the more ramshackle of them and you’re left with a solid dozen, all of which have been done - and better - in Mario Party. For the affordable price, and for the opportunity to have a mid-tier party game on the Xbox One, that might be enough. For others, it might be worth waiting at the window for Fall Guys to come to the party.

Dog Duty Review

The end result is a game that gets the adrenaline going at the start, but dumps landmines of imprecision and repetition in the way. By the end, you might have the thousand-yard stare of a war veteran. It’s certainly good value, and there’s challenge and length to the game, but your mileage may differ about whether the mission is worth taking. Dare we say it, Dog Duty on Xbox One might be a better proposition on PC.

Stellaris: Console Edition travels to Distant Stars in Expansion Pass Three DLC for Xbox One, PS4

If you’ve ever found yourself immersed in the strategic depths of Stellaris: Console Edition, you will be happy to know that the Third Expansion Pass kicks off today, the 15th of September, starting with the Distant Stars DLC pack. With two other DLC packs due to drop at the start of 2021, it sounds like a good time to return on Microsoft Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Welcome to Elk Review

There are experiences here that I’m not sure I’ve encountered before - at least not in a video game. If that’s not fodder for full marks, then I don’t know what is. Welcome to Elk on Xbox One is a game that’s going to stick long in the memory. For a story that deals in the power of memory, that feels like a suitable conclusion.
