Professor Lupo and His Horrible Pets by BeautiFun Games is a demanding puzzle adventure that challenges players to maneuver through a failing space station that houses some of the strangest and fiersted beasts in the known worlds.

Pop a Meh-lly
We all sometimes just need an escape from the despair of modern days. Some of us immerse ourselves in virtual reality, others cozy up in an adventurous novel, while some choose to explore an entirely new universe with the aid of a mind-bending elixir. We Happy Few explores the idea of a universal elixir, blinding society from its own destruction and eventual demise. Though the premise presents some engaging moments, most of it is marred by the satisfactory gameplay mechanics, and frustrating technical troubles. Continue reading We Happy Few Review
One More (Gut Wrenching) Run
Dead Cells is a beautifully crafted action-platformer with classic Metroidvania and modern rogue-lite elements. However, this mouthful of a description just cracks the surface of Motion Twin’s latest game. Continue reading Dead Cells Review

As a long time fan since 2010 with Assassin’s Creed 2, I can admit that the gameplay of the franchise hasn’t been that great. Each entry since the original Assassin’s Creed has only added a little as the years went by. With the year-long break the Assassin’s Creed franchise took, I can honestly say Assassin’s Creed Origins adds a lot to the franchise; so much it makes it feel like I’m playing a different game.

One needs only to glance at my history as a writer to see that Resident Evil is my favorite video game series. Specifically the first three titles, which both established and subsequently improved upon the survival horror genre on Sony’s PlayStation. While that type of game, with tank controls and static camera angles, are viewed today as relics of the past, Rainy Night Creations’ Vaccine may be a vital shot in the arm for this dormant genre.

FLOWERS ALMOST IN BLOOM
Seasons After Fall is a beautiful 2D puzzle-platformer where players’ heartstrings will be pulled throughout the game. The artstyle and score foster a gorgeous ballad, but the basic platforming and unrewarding exploration holds the game back from being an exceptional experience.
