Karma. Incarnation 1 - PC

There aren't many games that seem to dabble into the abstract or even the surreal much. I can't even recall the last game I've played that's ever really touched on the area until I played Karma. Incarnation 1, which is one of the trippiest puzzlers you will ever have the pleasure to play.

Grab The Bottle - PC

The world is split into two halves. The first half consists those who have never played Snake on their mobile phone, while the second consists of those who have ignored their families/jobs/bodily functions in favour of squeezing in “just one more round”. 

If you find yourself prescribing to the latter half of the human genus, then Grab the Bottle is probably for you.

Illusoria - PC

Illusoria is a 2d platformer game released on Steam by Indie game developer Under The Bridge.

When I was given a chance to do my first game review, I jumped at the chance, and I was especially excited to find out I was reviewing a platformer.  

2d Platform games are one of my favourite game genres, probably second to first person shooters.

Anyway, let’s get to the review!

☆ My Most Anticipated Games To Come From E3 2017 ☆ #GameDev #E32017

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On
This year's E3 is the first one that I have truly immersed myself into as it would seem that the coverage for this year's premier video games event has been all consuming and further reaching than ever before as it took over my life for 2 weeks.

I watched all of the developer press conferences which I really enjoyed and I soaked up stacks of commentary from the various outlets, but mainly from my favourite website Giant Bomb.com


After being an E3 junkie for a couple of weeks I'm now coming down from my E3 2017 fix and have just begun to piece together my thoughts on my ten most anticipated video games from the show.


It's quite tough to narrow this behemoth of a video game showdown to ten cool things that I just can't wait to play BUT I'm going to give it a go.


Here are my Most Anticipated Games To Come From E3 2017...

There was a time when the Boxing video game was a mainstay sub-genre of the video game industry.

There always seemed to be a tie in with a famous boxer on any console worth its salt.
There were also some really cool arcade games that tried to replicate the noble art of pugilism.

There are some ‘sort of’ spoilers up ahead. Some people may wish to go into this game completely blind and work out the mystery of the game mechanics for themselves but in order to review the game, I’ll have to explain how the game works. 

If you are in this category and just want to know if it’s any good without knowing anything further, then yes, it is. It’s completely awesome. Now stop reading and go and buy it.

Fat Mask is a puzzle-brawler which has been developed by Montreal’s Paper Cult, this team of two talented gentlemen people have created a great fast-paced title that’s well worth a blast with friends.
The indie developer world on PC has been the saviour of local multiplayer over the last few years when the local style of competitive / coop play was on it’s neglected backside.
Whilst recent news suggests that local play hasn’t been entirely forgotten, this game is a fantastic example of what offline multiplayer can truly offer.

☆ How Do You Measure Gaming Prowess? ☆ #GamersUnite

I recently came to the conclusion that I had played a hell of a lot of video games BUT that overall when it comes to being a gamer I'm not very skilled at it.....

(Basically I L♡VE Video Games but I suck at them!)

That got me thinking........

How Can Anyone Measure Their Overall Gaming Rank Against All The Other Video Gamers In The World?

What's The Benchmark To Measure Yourself Against? 

This is when I decided that maybe I could make up my own measurement system...

Diesel Guns - PC

The 90s was a good time for vehicle combat video games. With such titles as Death Rally, Twisted Metal, Interstate ’76 and Carmageddon, there were a number of mainstream titles to get the engines revving. 

But vehicle combat sims have become few and far between in modern gaming.

Enter Diesel Guns by Russian Developer LLC Intenzibne, a fast-paced combat racer that aims to mix the skills based combat of first-person shooters with the adrenalin fueled driving of a racing title.

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On

Tanzia is a pedigreed role-playing video game from some of the minds behind Wasteland 2 and Knights of the Old Republic II. Some might say they’re pretty good at sequels. Perhaps they need to be, as we will soon discover.
Before we begin, please note that this game is in beta. The developers say that it’s practically done, but even so, everything should be taken with a pinch of salt.

☆ What is Arcade Perfect? ☆

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On
Growing up in the 80’s and the 90’s, Video Games always strived to hit the highest accolade in gaming at the time. That accolade was the notion of being ‘Arcade Perfect’.



It was a lofty ambition for an 8 Bit console or Computer and an achievable stretch for the 16 Bit consoles of the early 90’s.



It’s the term that I would hope for in any video games review of the time and turned a maybe buy game into must have game.



The term has fallen away over the years as the console and computer powerhouses of the last couple of generations have exceeded the Arcade games arena in most cases.



Thinking about this term I began to let my mind wander to those halcyon days of Arcade Perfection and started to compile myself a list of the games from that era that reached that Arcade Perfect Accolade.

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On

Echoplex - PC Before getting started with Echoplex, it’s important to keep in mind the game is very a much work in progress. Currently, on Steam Early Access, Echoplex is a first person horror/puzzler from South African developer Output Games that rests itself among the likes of Portal and The Stanley Parable.
As a South African myself, I was extremely keen to give the game a go and was pleased to find an original and interesting idea lurking behind this admittedly rough-around-the-edges title.
