Regalia: Of Men and Monarchs is a game that doesn’t take itself too seriously – there is no huge incoming war and your not the chosen one that can stop the end of the world. Instead, you play a young and inexperienced lad named Kay that finds himself inheriting the ruined kingdom of his ancestors, and after running into a shady gentleman that reveals his ancestors owe a large amount of money, he is forced to restore the kingdom to its former glory. Kay begins his journey accompanied by Elaine and Gwendolyn; his two sisters, and a personal bodyguard named … Read More »

The most frustrating thing about Gravel, developed by Milestone, is that it is in no way a bad game. Whilst it looks pretty good at times and there is more than enough content from tracks and different cars to race, it never really amazed us. It fails to capture both fans of arcade style racing games and newcomers. There are many problems with the gameplay itself – the handling of cars is just bad; potato on wheels comes to mind. Possibly due to the fact that Gravel is an off-road racing game, so you’re constantly racing on muddy and dirt roads, but … Read More »

We all have seen the popularity of battle royale genre of games.  The online community is forever growing where media platforms such as Twitch and Mixer are becoming as popular as traditional television where the genre has been taking over in viewership.  Darwin Project is one of the newest entries to Xbox for the genre that pits 10 players against each other with a twist that makes it way different from the rest of the titles out there.  Developed by Scavengers Studio and currently in early access, where it shows some promise, it also has a lot of work that … Read More »

The premise of a lot of video games is that you, the protagonist, is there to save the world from what ever impending doom is coming. The premise of Extinction is something a little different. The world has already fallen to the ogre armies and now it is your task to just try to save as many people as possible, to try to stop the human race from going extinct. You play as Avil, a hero with a sword and your main enemies are the Ravenii. Basically these are just giant ogres which take up half of the screen. These … Read More »

Developed by the small six-person team at Threye Interactive, indie puzzle platformer Switch – Or Die Trying does exactly what it says on the tin: switch between a small and large character in order to navigate brutally difficult levels where you will die, a lot. Whilst the level of unforgiving challenge presented here will undoubtedly be of interest to some, the clunky and unintuitive controls prohibit this quirky indie title from being anything other than tedious. At first glance, the level design is adorably charming. Each of the five worlds have their own distinctive art and sound design from a Stranger Things-esque forest … Read More »

The indie developer world has been making a theme out of how much they can squeeze out of great gameplay with minimal Hollywood style appeal. In comes Demimonde, the one-man game development studio behind Octahedron. The studio’s creator Marco, also known as Monomirror, is solely responsible for nearly all aspects of the game, including design, programming, and art. Octahedron brings new life into action puzzle platformers through addictive fun gameplay with a very unique visual appeal. From the beginning as well as looking at any trailers you find, you will wonder what Octahedron is even about. Its mix of visuals … Read More »

After spending many hours on the sea with shipmates, Rare has crafted a game that definitely has something special on offer. This is a true role-playing game in the sense that you are a pirate. A dirty grog-swilling, foul-mouthed scurvy dog of the seas. From the get-go the game does very little to hold your hand which some people may like and others may be completely turned away. Giving you a brief tutorial before letting you out into its world. The first couple of hours of the game will be learning the basics, controlling your ship, fighting skeletons and how to … Read More »

Sword Art Online, for those that are unaware, originally started off its life as a light novel which then went on to be adapted into manga form several years later. Shortly after the release of the first manga (as is usual the case) an anime series was released. Set in a world where an extreme video game developer develops one of the greatest video games in history – Sword Art Online. However, during the launch of the game, the creator traps every gamer inside the game, through the power of their virtual reality headsets. If you die in the game, … Read More »
