Rise of the Tomb Raider Review

I thoroughly enjoyed the 2013 reboot of Tomb Raider, although the way the game leaned into grotesque murder and quick time events always left a sour taste in my mouth.

Review: The Deadly Tower of Monsters

The Deadly Tower of Monsters is a new twin-stick style shooter from Atlus that has you climbing a deadly tower, in which you fight monsters. As one would suspect from the name.

GALAK-Z Review

GALAK-Z, the second game from indie developers 17-Bit, is a procedurally generated 2D space shmup heavily inspired by 80s sci-fi, available on PS4 and Steam. The game’s events begin just after A-Tak, an inexperienced but ambitious fighter pilot escapes an ambush that almost completely wipes out his fleet. It soon becomes clear that it’s up […]
