Dead or Alive 5: Last Round Review (PlayStation 4)

The game that won't give up the fight

February 27, 2015 - It looks like Team Ninja is jumping on the fighting game re-release bandwagon like so many other developers. Within the past two and a half years, Dead or Alive 5 has been through four iterations. It makes you wonder; is it worth getting if you've already played a previous version or is it best to wait for the inevitable Dead or Alive 6?

Kirby and the Rainbow Curse Review (Wii U)

Get ready for a roly-poly adventure

February 23, 2015 - As one of the most reinvented video game series ever, Kirby returns in a follow-up to his decade old Canvas Curse.

Q*bert Rebooted Review

Q*bert Rebooted Review (PlayStation 4)

Some retro games should stay in the past

February 18, 2015 - In a world full of arcade-inspired indies, it's intriguing to see an actual remake of a classic arcade game. If you've played the original Q*bert then you'll generally know what to expect. A few additions and updates help freshen it up a bit for the modern age, but is it worth downloading a copy or is it only for fans? Before we get to the review, it should be mentioned that this package contains the original Q*bert (which is a pretty decent bonus), but it won't be covered in this review since I've already reviewed it here.

It'll take a great deal of firepower to tame this tempest

February 16, 2015 - Arcade shooters are a dime a dozen but very few draw inspiration from Atari's Tempest. Hyper Void offers plenty of satisfying gameplay that more than fills this gap in the market, but is it worth exploring the void or should you keep your ship docked?

Jungle Rumble Review

Jungle Rumble Review (PlayStation Vita)

All these primates want is a little freedom, happiness, and bananas

Good thing this spacecraft is equipped with two sticks

February 11, 2015 - As the fourth iteration on a PlayStation console, Super Stardust still holds up in its most Ultra form to date. However, is it worth adding yet another twin stick shooter to your collection or are you better off leaving it in the dust?

Apotheon Review

Apotheon Review (PlayStation 4)

201: A Greek Odyssey

February 7, 2015 - It must be a difficult feat to create a metroidvania adventure that even closely lives up to the games that the genre is named after. Apotheon is definitely a notable contender, but is it worth the journey back to ancient Greece or should you save your drachma?
