Pixel Puzzle Make Out League

Some might argue that there is nothing better in the world than pixel (Picross) puzzles and making out. The afterglow of a tough puzzle finally completed, and the burn of the first kiss with someone new. I haven’t played many dating simulators, if any at all, because I’ve...

The Coma 2: Vicious Sisters (Xbox One)

As time passes, I’ve fallen away from ‘big boom-boom AAA titles’ and fallen in line with gentle indies – games where you grow crops or build little towns and spend your days fishing. If you’re a fan of having your heart relocate into your mouth while you play...

Tropico 6 – Review

The Tropico series is well established, with players mostly enjoying their forays into running a ‘banana republic’ paradise as El Presidente. Pick the way you want to rule – a despotic capitalist, a benevolent commy or just someone in between, but the fun comes from picking sides. You...

Professional Farmer 2014: Platinum Edition – Review

There’s a surprisingly sizeable market for simulation games, and so you can’t blame UIG Entertainment for cashing-in on demand. The German publisher – also responsible for such riveting endeavours as Airport Simulator and Woodcutter Simulator – has recently released a ‘Platinum Edition’ of last November’s Professional Farmer 2014....

Attack of the Friday Monsters! A Tokyo Tale

There aren’t many games around that allow you to re-live the innocence of being a child. Unless those games are games you previously played as a youngster, you’re hard pressed to find something that awakens the inner child, knocking at the door of long forgotten memories and emotions....

Can’t wait for Zelda Wii U? Try Darksiders II

Impatiently waiting for Nintendo to finally reveal Legend of Zelda on Wii U? You should definitely consider reaching for Darksiders II to fill the Hyrulian-shaped void. Though rather than heading on a quest to save the princess or uncover the secret to a mysterious event; as Death, and...

Bureau: Kendall Rising – Xbox Indie Review

Agent Kendall, low level FBI computer technician, gets given the go ahead on a top arson and terrorism case. She’s everything a fictional female FBI agent should be – good looking, smart, fit, and incredibly over-proportioned. Or polygon heavy, if you prefer. A remake of a game first...

Back unto the Undead Burg once more

In just a few weeks time, Dark Souls diehards across the globe will be shunning their friends and loved ones to put the anticipated sequel through its paces. Before we cut off all contact with the outside world, we thought we would revisit Dark Souls for one last...

Xbox Fitness – Review

Microsoft has been curiously quiet about Xbox Fitness. You would have thought they’d use the fact that it’s a free download to tempt people into purchasing an Xbox One. That said, who exactly would pay attention? It has had prominent placement on the marketplace, yet people seemingly glance...

Dungeon Keeper – Review

Back in the ‘90s, Bullfrog was one of the biggest names in PC gaming. Theme Park, Theme Hospital, Magic Carpet, Syndicate and Populous became instant classics overnight, but it was Dungeon Keeper that turned the fantasy genre upside, making the player the bad guy instead of the hero....

Airport Simulator 2014 – Review

It doesn’t happen often, but every once in a while, a stinker of a game comes out which makes you consider whether there was a joke involved somewhere. Unfortunately, Airport Simulator is one of those stinkers. Developed by Actalogic and published by UIG Entertaintment, both companies have their...
