HOMEBOUND Review (PC VR)

It seems to me that nothing good ever comes from being in outer space. Whether you’re on a ship or a space station, some bad stuff is going to go down at some point. It could be aliens blasting first and asking questions later, it could be asteroids just shredding your hull to pieces, or maybe you just forgot to bring extra fuel and now you’re stranded. No matter what the issue, space is like one big bad luck charm. Things are no different in HOMEBOUND, a virtual reality title from Swedish studio Quixel. You fill the shoes (or...

Old Time Hockey Review (PC)

A hockey game on the PC has been unheard of since the dark ages of 2009, when EA released their last NHL game for Windows computers. Since then, you either had to pony up for a console or cross your fingers and wait. Fast forward to 2017, where the puck shaped voids in our hearts are only growing larger as we wait for a hero to answer the call, and what do you know? An independent studio has decided enough was enough! It was time to pull the jersey over the heads of those “triple A” studio chumps and...

Conan Exiles Impressions (PC)

I have a confession to make. I’m not that familiar with the Conan world. Yes, I’ve seen the movies at some point in my life, but I didn’t really ABSORB them. I probably should have but sometimes I can’t be bothered because of reasons. I’ve seen the comics, I know there are books, but Conan’s world is not something that I’ve ever been into. However, what I am into is video games. Someone had the idea to make a MMO Conan game, no not Age of Conan, I’m talking about Conan Exiles. Well, I thought it was an MMO...

Wells Review (PC)

There was a time, mainly during the 80’s and 90’s, when all you had to worry about was running to the right of the screen and shooting anything that crossed your path. It worked for Contra. It worked for Gunstar Heroes. Heck, it worked so well for Mega Man that we needed about forty seven games and spin offs. Now, about thirty some years later, Wells, a game available on Steam and Xbox One, hopes to revive the formula of the “run and gun” one more time. This game comes to us from Tower Up Studios, a Brazilian studio...

Maize Review (PC)

Corn. I like it. I like popcorn, steamed corn, corn on the cob with salt and butter. I even like corn muffins! But one question you must ask yourself when playing Maize is this: “Do I like sentient corn?”. After my play through of Maize, I can definitively say that yes, I do like sentient corn. I might even love it. Maize is a first person puzzle/adventure game that sees you, the player, waking up near a field of corn with no memory of anything before that very moment. How did I get here? Where is here? What were...
