The Banner Saga Review

Banner-Saga-1920x1080

Taking risks and living with the consequences. That’s what the Banner Saga feels like, most of the time. Stoic’s universe seems to be carefully crafted from legends of old and faery-tales alike, and sets players into a deep, mature and deeply rewarding world filled with peril and battered-down warriors. For most of the time, you feel as if you’re not ...

Sony Xperia Z2 tablet review

Sony-Xperia-Z2-Tablet-Review

The original Xperia Tablet Z was already among the slimmest and most attractive tablets, but Sony did even better with the Xperia Z2 Tablet. It’s the thinnest and lightest tablet on the market, featuring the highest water resistance available, and its slimmer waistline certainly improves the looks even further. Though water resistance is a big part of the Xperia Tablet ...

Adam Wolfe, Episode I Review

20161014110139_1

Adam Wolfe is a type of game that we don’t see very often anymore. Hidden object puzzles have been forced out of modern gaming, and the point and click adventure game has fallen out of favor with many modern gamers. It’s sad, really, because there’s a reason these games used to be so popular – they’re a lot of fun. Adam ...

Duelyst Review

2954553-trailer_duelyst_gameplay_20151022

Duelyst is a collectible card game for PC and Mac. Yes, I know that at this point, in 2016, that’s less exciting than it used to be. With TCG games like Hearthstone, Scrolls, Magic: The Gathering Online, and HEX (just to name a few) already on the scene, it’s increasingly harder to make a game that makes an impression. Luckily, though, Duelyst succeeds in many ways. ...

DOOM Review – To Hell and Back

4K-screenshot-5

As a series, DOOM has had quite the history. In 1993, the original DOOM was released, and it instantly became a hit. Since then, the series has only grown in popularity. DOOM, DOOM 2, and DOOM 3 rank among my favorite games – and I’m far from the only one. The first two games are pure FPS bliss, while DOOM 3 took things in a different direction that was ...

Lichdom: Battlemage Review

Lichdom Battlemage 2

Lichdom: Battlemage initially released on PC in 2014. Earlier this year, the game was ported to Xbox One and PlayStation 4, which is what this review will cover. To describe it briefly, it’s a first-person shooter style game that replaces your guns and grenades with spells and mage-style abilities. It sounds like a perfect marriage between magical RPGs and fast-paced ...
