West of Dead review: Unfinished business

West of Dead review
West of Dead has everything it needs to succeed, and yet it remains stuck in its own little limbo - forever moving forward but never getting anywhere. The roguelike genre is on fire. It presents indie developers with a priceless opportunity to take a familiar and beloved formula, and use...

Atomicrops review: An absolute blast of a game

Atomicrops review
Atomicrops takes several fan-favorite genres, sticks them in a blender, and shoots forward one of the best and craziest games of 2020. We first stumbled upon Atomicrops at Gamescom 2019, just before it went into Early Access. Since then, the game just kept getting better and better with every update...

Ashen review: The world is brighter together

Ashen review
Ashen borrows a lot from the Dark Souls series but adds enough new elements to forge its own way and create a friendlier experience. You can't avoid it - Ashen borrows everything from Dark Souls. The combat system, enemies that lurk in dark corners waiting to jump you, the healing...

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout review: Overshadowing the competition

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout Battle Royale
Even though Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is the trillionth entry in the series, it still manages to spice things up with Blackout simply by doing Battle Royale better. The annual Call of Duty title is upon us. Despite the rotation between three different development studios, the series was starting to tread the same ground, with each iteration feeling...

World of Tanks VR and World of Tanks AR Spectate take warfare to a whole new reality

World of Tanks VR
World of Tanks AR Spectate During Gamescom 2018, Wargaming presented a prototype system which they call World of Tanks AR Spectate or WoT-AR for short. The system takes a scripted scenario of a battle that happened in World of Tanks that displays in on any flat surface in your house, like the kitchen table, through an ordinary tablet. WoT-AR can run the simulation using...

In Children of Morta, a family who fights together sticks together

Children of Morta
While enjoying and exploring Gamescom 2018, we had a nice conversation with 11 bit studios about the various titles they plan to bring to Nintendo Switch. Children of Morta, a hack and slash title combining roguelike dungeon crawler, pixel art, and rich story, is one of them. As opposed to other roguelike games, Children of Morta emphasizes its story from...

If you never heard of it before, World of Warplanes is an online multiplayer game that tries to deliver the experience of World War 2's...

World of Warships Legends goes full steam ahead at Gamescom 2018

World of Warships Legends
World of Warships Legends brings 2015 PC naval warfare game World of Warships to consoles. We sat with two developers from Wargaming at Gamescom 2018 for a hands-off demo of an early build of the console version. The development team, led by Danny Volkov, is working on Legends with the consoles gaming experience in mind. The result - smaller 9 vs....

Dead Cells review: Death is only the beginning

Dead Cells features a great sense of progress and responsive combat. Better soundtrack and enemy designs would have made it even greater. If at first you don't succeed, die, die again. Dead Cells is a new experience every time you die, with "death as progress" being the general guiding principle. It's incredibly fun every time. It's been in Steam Early Access for...

Sea of Thieves review: a drop in the ocean

Sea of Thieves review
In its current state, there's a reason why some people are calling Sea of Thieves "No Man Sky but with pirates." There was a lot of hype leading to the release of Sea of Thieves. Since the Xbox One doesn't have a lot of exclusives anymore (and the ones it does have it shares with the PC), Microsoft is putting a...
