Here’s Why E3 2014 Was Disappointing


  It’s that time of the year again. Actually, it’s way past that time but there is a point to it. Read on for a slightly different E3 review from MaxImaz:     So, E3 2014 has come and gone and it was a weird one. Everyone, including Microsoft (!), actually did what they had […]

Our Mortal Kombat X Trailer Impressions and Game Wish List


The debut trailer for Mortal Kombat X is here, and more details are probably to follow in just a matter of days, at this year’s E3. Sure, we could wait and offer our impressions after the fact, but we feel that it would be interesting to provide our expectations and wishes based on the initial […]



As you may know, we like to keep up with some potentially awesome new games that may be a little off the general radar. This usually means Kickstarter, but today, we are happy to share some news, in form of actual in-game screenshots, from Deathfire: Ruins of Nethermore, an independent first-person RPG, helmed by Guideo Henkel.   […]

E3 2013 Conferences. Microsoft vs Sony


We’ve all waited for exactly a year and survived through a freaking apocalypse to get here, the end of June 10th, 2013. Arguably, the part of E3 we all give a crap about the most (let’s be honest) is over and there it’s time to try and make sense of it all. Well, not it […]

3 Compromises Microsoft Must Make If The Rumors Are True


  In terms of importance, most of the Xbox One features that were announced at the May 21st unveiling paled in comparison to whatever was implied at the event or right after. Really, as far as a ‘grand reveal of a next generation technology” goes, the bullet points were rather underwhelming: there was the TV thingamajig, which […]

Remaster Alpha Protocol! (Urgent Letter to Obsidian)


  Prior to release, Alpha Protocol was everywhere. Every self-respecting ‘most anticipated’ list had to include it, even from those who ended up giving the game a low review score. For some, this title was supposed to be an ‘espionage Mass Effect'; for others, it was a big budget old school RPG from the talent at Obsidian…   […]

Xbox One Reveal. Our (negative) Impressions.


  So, the eagerly-anticipated ‘Xbox event’ has come and gone, and as always, it’s time for our impressions. Before I personally start, I would like to note that we do our impression pieces without taking into account any information that comes after, or in addition to, what was revealed at the actual event. This way, […]

3 Innovations We Actually Want From ‘The Next Gen’


  New consoles used to be easy: more polygons, more bits, stereo-er sound, what have you. Most of us had no idea what the fuck those terms even meant (I still don’t), but they made the technological progress somewhat quantifiable. We knew that the audio and the video were to get better, and we also […]

Planescape’s Guido Henkel Talks Torment, His New Game and More!


Our very own Allen got his very first interview with Guido Henkel, the producer of the amazing Planescape: Torment, which Allen has covered for us before. Congratulations to Allen and massive thanks to Guido, from all of us, for taking the time. AL: Apart from being the face of Torment (sorry, I couldn’t resist), you were also the […]

Impressions on PlayStation Meeting 2013


PlayStation Meeting 2013 has officially come and gone, delivering exactly what we all had expected and hoped for – the announcement of the PS4. Undoubtedly, you have already watched all the reveals so we won’t be doing a sentence-by-sentence here, instead, we’ll give you our take-aways. You’ll want to grab some nuts (or another snack) […]
