Castles of Mad King Ludwig Review

So Wednesday I mentioned Castles of Mad King Ludwig Collector’s Edition is on Kickstarter next week. Today I review the original game to give you an idea of if you may be interested! This Bezier Games staple is a lot of fun, but it’s not for everyone. It’s not as hard to get your head around as you may think though!

Bugsnax Review

When I saw the Bugsnax trailer in the PS5 showcase earlier this year, I was intrigued. While I haven’t played Octodad, Young Horses previous game, I am aware of its almost cult status. And getting the game included with PlayStation Plus meant that I just had to play it! What did I think? Well, that’s what the review is for!

Scooby-Doo! Escape from the Haunted Mansion Review

At home escape room games have blown up in popularity this year for obvious reasons. Narrative adventure games have generally been popular as well. But how can you get the best of both worlds without the story feeling forced? Fit it into a theme that already integrates the two! Scooby-Doo! Escape from the Haunted Mansion has jumped to the top of two genres of game styles for me, come in and see why.

Marvel’s Spider-Man (and Remastered) Review

The good part about being on holidays – I have time to rest and play games! The better part is I have time to write about them! Reviews are back, and hopefully will remain a weekly feature again And first off is Marvel’s Spider-Man, now that I have platinumed the remastered version. Is it worth playing? YES – if you haven’t played it already on PS4.

Minesweeper Genius Review

As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago in Last Week’s Gaming, I picked up a very cheap Minesweeper game on the eShop. I thought “It’s only a dollar. Might be OK.”

Well, fair to say Minesweeper Genius has surprised me a lot. And I think it will surprise you as well.

The Outer Worlds Review

I’ve talked about it long enough, and here it is – my review of The Outer Worlds. I don’t go deep into gameplay, but I have a bit to say about the Switch port – mainly I don’t seem to have the same problems others have. I suspect it’s my SD card? I talk about it in the review.

Have a great weekend everyone!

The Card: Poker, Texas Holdem, Blackjack, Page One Review

So I didn’t get to play much Outer Worlds this week, so that review is still a little ways away. But I did pick up a new game for the Switch on sale. It won’t be for everyone, but if you enjoy playing Poker, Texas Holdem, Blackjack and/or Page One but don’t like playing online, then The Card may be a game for you.

It does give The Game a run for its money as the worst searchable game title though! Seriously, who thought that finding The Card Switch would show this title?

Blood Rage Digital Edition Review (and physical game thoughts)

As I wrote last week, I was really excited Blood Rage was getting a digital implemntation. After having a few games up my sleeve both physical and digital, I thought it was time for a full review. At it’s heart, Blood Rage has been faithfully translated from it’s physical form.

But be warned – if you are playing solo, there are some quirks for the developers to sort out still. If you are playing multiplayer, there are many more severe issues to be sorted.

Dragon Castle Review

Another week down, and I don’t know where it went. One thing that I did enjoy was trying out Dragon Castle during the week thanks to a Steam sale. A great game for a fun conversation and hidden depths, the Mahjong Solitaire inspired Dragon Castle is a game that can be easily overlooked. It’s a pity, because I think a lot of players that would pass on it would find a very entertaining title.

Have a great weekend everyone!
