by Matthew Smail

In Outlast: Bundle of Terror, Switch owners are treated to perhaps one of the most terrifying first person horror experiences ever made, which is even more personal as the result of the way in which Switch games immerse players so deeply into the experience.

‘Train Sim World: Founders Edition’ Review (Xbox One X)

by Paul Metcalf

I’m a fan of first-person shooter games where the action is constant, and often the pace is aggressive. Sometimes though it is nice to relax and play a game like Euro Truck Driver where the open road and a time limit is your only enemy. This is a reason I looked at Train Sim World: […]

by Paul Metcalf

I’m a fan of the many Telltale Games, and Life is Strange, but sometimes it feels like the choices made don’t really have enough of an effect. While this does not really ruin the story, it does lessen the danger of messing up your game. The Council: Episode 1 – The Mad Ones introduces us […]

‘Mulaka’ Review (PC/Steam)

by Rupert Harvey

Chihuahua-based indie outfit Lienzo, makers of the mediocre metroidvania Hunter’s Legacy, take the leap to polygons with 3D action-adventure Mulaka. It’s a very mixed bag, but overall its uniqueness and charm just about win out. The game is steeped in Mexican mythology. You are Sukurúame of the Tarahumara tribe, whose task is to gain the trust […]
