The Finale – Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller

It’s never easy to review a mystery/detective game. Mainly because the only words I can describe about the story would be ‘Good’, ‘Great’, ‘OMGTHISIZAWEZOME!’. No matter how much I’d want to discuss the story, and tell you who the killer is or why all of it happened or just simply what happens in the end – I wouldn’t be able to. This wouldn’t be a problem for an action, simulation or an arcade game. But when it’s an adventure game, it puts me between a rock and a hard place. The Cain Killer, the last and final episode of…

Starbound Preview

There was a game released a little while back that made a bit of a splash. You might have even heard of it. Terraria. No? Well… must be nice living under that rock! Well, think of Starbound as a sort of spiritual sequel. It’s like Terraria… in space! Well… Terraria in space with a story and a whole lot more. But you get the idea. Starbound, developed by Chucklefish, is a two-dimensional sandbox game where players travel from planet to planet, exploring dozens of different environments, collecting resources, building bases, and so on. But more than that, there’s a…

MirrorMoon EP Review

Some games are truly beautiful. Ever since playing Dear Esther I’ve found my self actually seeking out games that don’t really follow the standard formula. Upcoming titles like Lacuna Passage for example have my interest piqued. So when there was a simple banner ad on Steam, sporting some very outlandish-looking artwork and a title that read “MirrorMoon EP”, I couldn’t help but click on it. I was sold part way into the trailer and bought it there and then (god I love digital distribution). Hours later, I emerged, confused, a little frustrated, but feeling like I’d had a truly…

Greenlight Spotlight – Hot Tin Roof by Glass Bottom Games

It’s been a while since I wrote my last article, I’ve been slacking off ever since I got back from my vacation so finally I decided to pick up the slack and get one article out. I wanted to start off with a greenlight spotlight article, because it is hands down the most enjoyable one as far as I am concerned, don’t get me wrong I love writing news pieces and reviewing AAA games, but Greenlight Spotlight always surprises me. Every conversation with the developer is a chance to make a new friend and every game you try will…

Out This Week: New Releases (July 21st – 17th)

Govind will no longer be doing the ‘Out This Week’ series, this is very unfortunate as I enjoyed reading them each Sunday. I hope that everybody will enjoy my version just as much! This week we have a high number of game releases, some I am looking forward to, some I already have and some I have never heard of them.   Mario and Luigi Dream Team  (3DS) 11th August 2013 As a new owner of a 3DS this is a game I will be looking to buy, just as soon as the price drops. Despite loving my 3DS,…

Out This Week: New Releases (July 21st – 27th)

Summer sale ends tomorrow, so watch out for any last minute deals, that’s not going to stop new games from entering the fray this week with a lot of titles heading into almost all the available platforms, quantity isn’t an issue, quality, well that’s another story altogether. The first thing that came to mind when I saw the trailer for this week’s ‘Pick of the week’ is Murder on the Orient Express, a mystery novel that was published way back in 1934. Written by Agatha Christie. Now I am no reader, but my mom being a teacher always tried(the…

Out This Week: New Releases (June 30th – July 6th)

Last week was a pretty good one for gamers, I had a hard time picking the pick of the week, but this week, it’s not as tough. Dark reappears as some last minute complications had delayed it to 5th of July, which sucked because I was waiting for the game for a while! Well, I suppose I could wait another week, or at the very least try.This week is a different kind of week, I’ve seen a lot of games supposed to release this week, but only 4 have actual dates. All the others seems to have “sometime in…

We take a look at Moebius: Jane Jensen’s Newest Entry

If you are familiar with the adventure genre, you have definitely played one of Jane Jensen’s games, her games tell capturing stories and have enthralled the minds of gamers worldwide ever since Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers came out nearly two decades ago in December 1993. To put things in perspective, I was 3 years old.   Moebius, Jane Jensen’s newest game, is one that’s still in development. The mail I received, repeatedly requested me to not judge the game based on this, because it’s an early build, that it has bugs, visuals are still not finished, so…

We Go Treasure Hunting with Wyv and Keep: The Temple of The Lost…

People ask me why I love Indie games. They ask why I sometimes even prefer them over great AAA titles, which have better graphics, gameplay and in some cases better story. I always tell them that the reason I prefer Indie titles is because they have one special and unique quality – character. Most of them nod and smile thinking “Yeah right.” and the conversation moves on. But now, if someone asks me why I prefer Indies over AAA, all I will have to do is tell them to play Wyv and Keep: The Temple of The Lost Idol.…

Out This Week: New Releases (9th – 15th June)

We’re into the most important week of June as far as I am concerned with The Last of Us coming out on the 14th! Needless to say that The Last of Us is the pick of the week. But it is a bittersweet week as only three games are coming out. Now, I am not complaining, gives me some time to get some much needed backlog work done. Releases from 9th – 15th June Animal Crossing: New Leaf (3DS) 9th June, 2013 I’ve never played an Animal Crossing game, in fact I thought it was a new version of Frogger, except with new…

Out This Week: New Releases (26th May – 1st June)

Last week Dan had to take over the OutThisWeek edition as I didn’t get any time in front of a computer, so first off I wanna thank him. Looking over at the games coming out this week, I am excited! The pick of the week has to be Grid 2. I have been following the game for ages and it’s finally coming out! The multiplayer system looks pretty awesome, the only drawback I can see is that it’s a codemasters game, not bashing them, but the whole F1 series have left me wanting more, here’s hoping that wont happen…

It’s a big week for gaming. We’ve got the much awaited Dead Island Riptide coming out, Deep Silver has done a range of promotions for this game from adverts to paying for the world’s first (official) zombie wedding. Dead Island Riptide is my pick of the week, but there are some other great games coming out as well! Releases from 21st – 27th April Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins (3DS) Out Today! The prequel to Lego City Undercover, the WiiU game that is set in a lego sandbox world. As you play Chase McCain as a rookie cop. Solving his very first…

Out This Week: New Releases (April 7th – 13th)

A pretty cool week of gaming awaits us this time around with something for everyone. It was kinda hard to pick the ‘Pick of the Week’. In the end I went with Ocean City Racing, it’s a new game, and one that should provide hours and hours of fun being an open world racer. I am excited to see how an Indie developer handles the open world. Releases from 7th – 13th April Halo 4: Castle Map Pack (XBox 360) 8th April, 2013 Not much of a new game, more of a DLC. But it wouldn’t be right to leave this out of…

Review: We travel to Another World

Another World(Out of This World in US) is not a new game by any means, it is more than 20 years old, the guys at DotEmu and Eric Chahi released a 20th Anniversary Edition on steam on April 4th, 2013. And we just had to play it again. It is one of the classics but I was surprised that I had never played it. So getting a chance to review a game that has reborn after two decades was a chance I could not pass up on. The story and sheer joy you experience from this platformer is truly…

First of all! Happy Easter everybody! It’s the April Fool’s week, but don’t worry we’re not going to mess with you, all the games given below are for a fact coming out this week, or are they *dun dun dun!* Seriously they are, I swear! Not many big name games, but certainly a week for a LOT of games! So I’ll try to keep the summaries as brief as possible. My game of the week isn’t the obvious choice, the obvious choice of course being Defiance, the much awaited MMO that will be connected to the show. While Defiance…
