REVIEW – Akane (Switch)

One Woman Army Akane is a low cost one-hit one-kill arena slasher on the Switch eShop.  Think Robotron but without twin-stick controls, a neon landscape, you fight Yakuza instead of aliens, and with a stronger emphasis on melee combat. Death will inevitably strike the player but the goal is to take as many Yakuza with …

REVIEW – At Sundown: Shots in the Dark (Xbox One)

Stealthy Twin Stick Multiplayer Shooter If you took your favorite twin stick shooter and made it a competitive multiplayer experience with a slight Spy Vs Spy theme, you would get something like At Sundown: Shots in the Dark.

REVIEW – Wild Guns Reloaded PS4

A Few In the Chamber In an age of remakes, re-releases, and remasterings, it has become the norm seeing old games get a second life on new gen consoles.

REVIEW – Wulverblade Xbox One Review

Stopping the Invasion A love letter to ‘90s beat’em ups, Wulverblade is a brutally animated game that plays and feels like a new Final Fight or Streets of Rage. Developed by Fully Illustrated and published by Darkwind Media, this 2D side-scrolling brawler might be considered an indie game but plays and feels like a AAA …
