Project Root Review

An interesting combination of classic shoot 'em ups and EA's Strike series

Rack N Ruin Review

Rack N Ruin Review

Destroying the planet sure isn't going to be easy

April 3, 2015 - Gamers tend to ignore games that require patience before they start to shine. The same could be said about modern classics such as Demon's Souls which took a great deal of time before it become popular. As far as I can tell, this tendency is due to the inability to give unfamiliar experiences a chance. Such is the case with Rack N Ruin. On the surface, it appears as if it's yet another throwaway indie title, but at its core, it's one of the most rewarding and challenging old-school adventures that I have ever had the privilege to go on.

Metal Slug 3 Review

Metal Slug 3 Review

General Morden should know not to make alliances with aliens

March 25, 2015 - Metal Slug has been around for almost two decades and for good reason. It still stands tall as one of the best run 'n' gun shooters and with the recent release of the third game on modern consoles, there's no reason not to experience this timeless classic.
