Voidigo Preview

The roguelite genre has seen a massive surge in popularity in recent years, with a few notables receiving widespread critical acclaim and sales to match. Given this kind of competition, a newcomer really needs to make its mark in order to stand out, and even in early access Voidigo is one to check out.


Everspace 2 Preview

The original Everspace – which I Did Not Review back when it came out – was something of an oddity. A space combat roguelike, it inserted some pretty stunning production values into a subgenre that, at the time, was largely confined to low-budget indie projects. We got the gorgeous vistas and exciting dogfights of a modern Freespace successor, but folded and fitted into a digestible run-based structure.


Looking Back: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey (2018)

I’ve never been an Assassin’s Creed fan. From the start, the series has always felt too bloated and full of busywork, and the premise of reliving past lives through DNA reconstruction (because DNA records every minute of action and every word of every ancestor’s life, I guess?) never gelled for me.


This Is Not A Review: Spacebase Startopia

Welcome to This Is Not A Review. In these articles we discuss general impressions, ideas and thoughts on any given game, but as the title implies, it’s not a review. Instead, it’s an exercise in offering a quick recommendation (or dismissal) after spending enough time to grasp the ideas and gameplay of a thing without necessarily playing it from A to Z.

The subject of this installment: Spacebase Startopia available on PS4, PS4, XBX/S, XBO, Switch and PC, developed by Realmforge Studios and published by Kalypso



Motor Strike: Racing Rampage Preview


Smashing cars into other cars and watching them explode as I race by is one of the simple pleasures in life that is exclusively enjoyed (legally) through videogames. The combination of speed and destruction gives a rush that’s hard to beat, and thankfully even in the alpha-testing phase, Motor Strike: Racing Rampage delivers.



The Eternal Cylinder Preview

It’s only March, but I’m going to say that The Eternal Cylinder will be one the most innovative games of 2021. This action-adventure with survival elements puts the players in the shoes of cute and tiny creatures called Trebhums. Their objective is simple — save their world from the evil Cylinder. However, this basic premise is soon revealed to be a memorable odyssey.
