Spellbreak Preview

If the success of Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout has taught us anything, it’s that it’s possible to make a successful battle royale without the use of guns or crafting. As the genre becomes increasingly popular, it’s interesting to see the different spins developers add to the ‘last person standing’ style of play. Spellbreak‘s twist? Fantasy.


Tannenberg Review

War Never Changes

HIGH It reminded me how great Battlefield I and V were.

LOW It looks like an N64 game exclusive to KB Toys.

WTF Am I going to hell for laughing at the noises enemies make when they die?

Can’t Help Falling In Love

HIGH An interesting shake-up in the battle royale genre.

LOW That stupid, stupid slide that caused me to curse my poor friend out over party chat.

WTF I had way more falling puns for the tagline.


Rocket Arena Review

I Wanna Rock(et) And Roll All Night

HIGH A creative combo of styles rolled into an online shooter.

LOW The playerbase numbers, apparently.

WTF An impromptu game mode in Halo inspired this.
