Protocol Review

Protocol is played in the style of a walking simulator, where instead of exploring a unique environment or experimenting with your surroundings sandbox-style, you essentially play as a slave. Gameplay consists of following a literal protocol and proceeding through a dangerous sci-fi landscape as a lab rat. One wrong move to contradict your A.I. overseer’s...

Death Collector Review

Death Collector is an interactive fantasy novel written by Jordan Reyne and published by Choice of Games. It plays out similarly to a visual novel but is completely text-based with no CGs, sprites, or music.

This is a review of the Nintendo Switch version of Omega Strike. The game is also available on Windows, Xbox One, and PS4.

The Expendabros Review

The Expendabros is an 8-bit arcade game based on the Expendables movie series. This free-to-play promotional game is extremely easy to understand, but difficult to master. It involves controlling a character from the films and blowing up your way to the checkpoint at the end of each level. Environments are fully destructible and the side-scrolling...

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Review

The wait is finally over. The ultimate Smash Bros game is here, but does it hold up to its name? With a truckload of new modes, characters, stages, features, and much more, it definitely should. As always, Smash has amazing gameplay, now better than ever. From snappy, precise controls to improved balancing, Smash has been...

Destiny 2 Campaign Review

With Destiny 2 essentially going free-to-play, I decided to give its story mode a try. The game is mostly known for PvP and co-op modes, but does include a decently sized single-player story, complete with cinematics, dialogue, lore, and FPS action. I didn’t have many expectations going into Destiny 2’s campaign, especially since it was...

Every once in a while a person needs to blow off some steam after a long day’s work. Happy Room is the perfect stress reliever for these types of situations with its violent, sandbox-style gameplay. Developed by Mana Potion Studios, the game provides an infinite queue of ragdoll test dummies to dismember, torture, and experiment...
