First Impressions: The Coma 2: Vicious Sisters

Having recently taken a look at The Coma 2: Vicious Sisters ahead of its Xbox One release, I’ve now had a chance to play it and I’m pleased to report that it’s an excellently creepy experience. I was perhaps expecting the game to be more along the lines of a visual novel with little interaction beyond the odd occasional dialogue […]

Preview: Unspottable

I played quite a few demos as part of the Xbox Summer Game Fest, many of which were games that I’m very keen to get my hands on when they’re released. One that had flown under the radar for me until I tried the demo was Unspottable, which is honestly one of the best local multiplayer games I’ve played in […]

First Impressions: Neon Abyss

Though the number of indie games that have roguelite elements or structures seems to be increasing exponentially, there are certain elements that make these elements really appealing, both from the designer’s and player’s perspective. Chief among these is the procedural generation, which usually helps to keep things feeling suitably fresh, exciting and surprising when done right. The level of challenge […]

Preview: Destroy All Humans!

I was a massive fan of the first Destroy All Humans! game, which – somewhat unbelievably – launched way back in 2005 on the original Xbox and PlayStation 2. Though it seems somewhat dated by today’s standards, fifteen years ago its deliciously dark humour and satirical look at 1950s America through the eyes of a satisfyingly evil alien was an […]

First Impressions: Coffee Talk

Though I’ve played a few hours of Coffee Talk at this stage, it’s still too early to give a proper review of it. However, I’ve been dying to write about it ever since I started playing. It’s a wonderfully unique concept; essentially a visual novel in which you play as a night time barista in a coffee shop, Coffee Talk […]

Though Ultimate Games S.A. have been releasing lots of simulator games – from across the tonal spectrum, ranging from outrageously daft to serious recreations of actual, real world activities – they’ve just announced the release of a city surveillancesimulator on the PC which looks very different to any they’ve previously published. We live in a vastly monitored world, our movements […]
