We Review: Mass Effect Andromeda

Mass Effect Andromeda is, without being an out-and-out reboot, essentially a side-reboot of the Mass Effect series. The core series, starring everyone’s favourite Commander, ended on a very definite note with Mass Effect 3, and to be able to get back into the Mass Effect universe, EA has taken us to a whole new galaxy with a new cast and crew to play with. Let’s hit up the Andromeda galaxy for a review of this title.

We Review: Everything

Some games are more about the experience than about gameplay or graphics or clever music, and Everything happens to be one of these sorts of games. And with no real story to speak of, it also happens to be the kind of thing that’s notoriously difficult to review, but we’re going to try, nonetheless.

We Review: Yo-Kai Watch 2

Last year, we reviewed Yo-Kai Watch, a game that was a take on the Pokémon “Collect them all” style of gaming. I thoroughly enjoyed it at the time, and so it was with great joy I got a chance to review Yo-Kai Watch 2. Let’s find out what’s different about this game, shall we?

We Review: Blue Rider

Ah, good old bullet hell games. They evolved from more standard shmup games back in the 1990s, and players have been dodging bullets ever since. Most of these games are either side or top scroll, but now we have a bullet hell game with full 360 degree movement and a world to explore. Enter Blue Rider, a twin-stick bullet hell shooter that will test your reflexes and your patience.

We Review: Mario Sports Superstars

The Mario sports games are some of those perennial things that you can count on reappearing every year or so. You may not get every single one of them every year, but you’re guaranteed to see at least one in any given year. It’s with some surprise, then, that we see the release of Mario Sports Superstars, a compilation of five sports games all rolled into one. Go grab the soccer ball, tennis ball, baseball, golf ball, and horse..err…ball, and meet me down at the pitch green court course diamond for the review.

We Review: Dystoria

There’s a huge gap between games that look retro and play retro, and games that are faux-retro but play like something modern. Dystoria falls into the latter category, and is a 1st person/3rd person action shooter from developers Tri-Coastal Games. Let’s get our 80s synthwave music going and I’ll meet you at the spaceship for a briefing.

Coolness: Customizable LEGO Caps

Don’t you hate having to wear the same cap day in and day out? Well, there’s a solution for you fickle folks: LEGO caps. It has space for you to put your own LEGO bricks on (or the LEGO bricks of your 8-year old child) and completely customize the way the cap looks. Heading to the aquarium for a day? Put some fish on. Going to a gig? How about minifigs of the band members? Check out some of the pics below.

We Review: Nioh

Nioh is the modern equivalent of “like Dark Soul, but…”, so I’m going to try eschewing all mention of Dark Souls in this review (Ed: you’ve failed twice already) and try to review Nioh on its own merits. No more mention of Dark Souls (Ed: thrice). Let’s go back to the Sengoku period in Japan’s past to track down some demons.

Build Your Own Horizon Zero Dawn LEGO Tallneck

Upcoming PS4 exclusive Horizon Zero Dawn looks to be one epic game, and hopefully we’ll even have a review up for you guys soon! The game features these humonstrous animalistic mechs, which, judging from the in-game footage we’ve seen so far, certainly look highly impressive. While we wait for the official merch to swing by, you can always build your own LEGO Tallneck mech (that’s the one that looks like a giraffe) to have and hold and hug and call Alfred, with instructions courtesy of South African LEGO expert, Wayne de Beer.

We Review: Among the Innocent: A Stricken Tale

Among the Innocent: A Stricken Tale is a new game by a new studio, Zero Degrees Games. The game is a first-person puzzle-horror-ish hybrid, and takes place in the Free State, South Africa back in 2001, before cellphones became common enough to live everyone’s back pocket. Let’s head down to the farm and see what this review holds for us.
