Tomb Raider: Where are the Tombs?

Let’s start by saying the newly rebooted Tomb Raider is a fantastically fluid, beautiful looking action game.  It’s as close as I’ve ever got to playing a big, box-office smashing action movie on my PC. Including all the eye-candy and quickened heart beat inducing scenes that Hollywood provides. But how would you feel if you …

Review of 99 Levels to Hell

It's just some blood filled exploding spiders.

[rating=3] 99 Levels to Hell does exactly what it says on the packet; 99 randomly generated levels ever descending downwards to the deepest recesses of hell. It’s a permadeath platformer that happily wears its influences on its sleeves. It’s Binding of Isaac, meets Bubble Bobble meets Diablo with a dash of Bomberman thrown in for …

Why You Should Play Path of Exile: How a F2P Game Did Diablo Better Than Diablo

At this point in time I’m completely unable to think a witty new way to start writing a piece about an action rpg. The 2012 action rpg-apocalypse has exhausted me. That doesn’t mean I’ve stopped playing ARPG’s though. Oh no, the gaming gods are yet to release me of that particular addiction. Path of Exile is …

Review of Antichamber

[rating=3] The majority of the time playing Antichamber you will feel one of two things. Either an elated feeling of supreme intelligence as the solution to one the games many lateral thinking based puzzles slowly dawns on you. Or, a feeling of severe bewilderment as you aimlessly wander the game’s hyper colored halls without any …

9 Awesome Video Game Music Tracks from the 90’s

  Game music lately hasn’t had the same impact for me as it did back in the day (apart from say Hotline Miami and Frozen Synapse). Because of this and the fact that the 90’s has replaced (or is replacing) the 80’s as the go to decade for retro themed nostalgia, I decided to do a …

Enhanced is a subjective term.

Review of Drox Operative

Impressing the locals

[rating=4] 2012 was a big year for the action RPG and Drox Operative warp-drived into existence at the very last minute to be part of it. Don’t allow your click-weary, loot collecting index finger to let you down because it thinks you have already had your fill of ARPG’s this year. I can assure you …
