This comic has the chance to shed some […]

Firefly – The Unification War Part 1 Review

By Steven Seggerman Back in 2002 Firefly aired for the first time on TV, and viewers instantly fell in love. Despite the overwhelming praise it received from its numerous fans, the show was canceled only after one season. Through relentless and persistent badgering by the fans, Universal Studios took on the world of Firefly, creating a movie that wrapped things […]

Fell Seal Arbiter’s Mark Review

By Steven Seggerman Tactical RPGs are some of my favorite types of games. 6 Eyes Studios has admitted their biggest influence was Final Fantasy Tactics, and it’s a great game to model a project off of. Battles can go on and on, requiring a lot of patience, but I love seeing how each move you make can turn the tide […]

Life is Strange – Dust Review

By Steven Seggerman If you’ve been following my game reviews, or know anything about me at all, you’re probably aware of (and tired of hearing about) my deep love for the Life is Strange series. Choice, and how that choice affects the world in strange, and sometimes, devastating ways was one of the many things that made the series so […]

Cold Blood Samurai #1 Review

By Steven Seggerman What do you get when you take The Last Samurai, turn Tom Cruise and the rest of the cast into reptiles, then mash it up with The War of Mice and Frogs? You get this unique twist on real and tumultuous times in our history. We see the internal struggle for peace from our main character, who […]

Vaporum Review

By Steven Seggerman Vaporum is a game that checks all the boxes for me. Tactical, strategic combat on a grid map with deep RPG elements? Shut up and take my money. However, right away I knew I was going to have a lot of mixed feelings about the game. The intro and storytelling are questionably decent, but the gameplay itself […]

Generation Zero Review

By Steven Seggerman Generation Zero is a first-person survival game that takes place in ‘80s Sweden during a post-apocalyptic event. The “we made killer robots, and we’re surprised they’ve turned on us” variety of apocalypse we’ve all come to know and dread. There’s no real story here, other than a quick set up and some overly simplified “quest” dialogue. Generation […]

Elder Scrolls Blades Review

By Steven Seggerman After months of being teased by Bethesda, The Elder Scrolls: Blades is finally here! I got my Early Access pass, jumped in, and was immediately blown away by what I saw. The graphics are unreal for a mobile game, something you really must see to believe. It’s not a perfect game by any account, in fact, it’s […]

Operencia: The Stolen Sun Review

By Steven Seggerman Operencia: The Stolen Sun sounds like your typical run-of-the-mill RPG. At first glance, I didn’t see anything that stood out from the rest. However, after having spent just half an hour with the game, I could tell there was something special here. You’re going to need to give it half an hour though, seriously, that intro level […]

Riot: Civil Unrest Review

By Steven Seggerman When browsing through the Switch’s eShop I spied Riot and was instantly curious. The backstory behind the game’s development had me even more intrigued when I discovered that the developers behind Riot found themselves caught in, well, a riot! This is what inspired them to create a game about actual conflicts, showing them in a neutral light, […]

Yonder – The Cloud Catcher Chronicles Review

By Steven Seggerman Some games are no-holds-barred, adrenaline-filled thrill rides full of action and danger, and then there are games like Yonder. It has none of that; in fact, there is no combat whatsoever. At first, I found that mind-blowing, but after sinking a lot of time into it, I realized that it doesn’t need any of that stuff. The […]

The Anthem Review

By Steven Seggerman Some time ago I got into Anthem’s VIP beta, and like many of you, I was worried about the future of this game. To say that “I got into” the beta is referring to the times that it worked. When I got the chance to fly around It was a fantastic thrill ride, but most of the […]

Video Game Review: Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy

By Steven Seggerman Originally released back in 2003 on just about everything you can think of. PS2, Xbox, PC, and the Gamecube, Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy was given decent scores all around. Despite this, the game went completely under the radar for most people. Now it’s 2019, and it’s been ported once again. This time to the Nintendo Switch. […]

Video Game Review: Kingdom Hearts 3

By Steven Seggerman Before I go breaking any hearts, warning, there will be spoilers ahead! Kingdom Hearts is a series confusing even to it’s more die-hard fans, but die-hard fans it has aplenty. It’s been almost two decades, and now a dozen different installments, but we finally have the conclusive(?) game we’ve been waiting for. And oh my gosh what […]

(Photo:www.ea.com) By Steven Seggerman Horizon Zero Dawn meets Iron Man Let’s be honest, we all wish we could fly around in one of Iron Man’s suits. Zipping around the sky, blasting enemies with hand cannons and missiles. Anthem is that dream come true. When the demo works, it very works well.

The Raven Remastered Review

By Steven Seggerman A long thought dead master thief, The Raven, has resurfaced and is out to steal the world’s greatest treasures. It’s up to Swiss Constable Anton Zellner to stop him using his top-notch detective skills. He isn’t an inspector tough, hasn’t even seen a murder scene before.

Coffee Crisis Review

By Steven Seggerman If you’re a fan of coffee, metal, and classic arcade-style games like Streets of Rage, you may find a lot to enjoy with Mega Cat Studios multiplayer beat ‘em up: Coffee Crisis. I knew I was in for a crazy ride when the narrator is an old man wearing a tinfoil hat ranting about invading aliens stealing […]

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 Review

This couldn’t be more true with the newest addition in everyone’s favorite rat splattering escapade. The team is back, and with more witty banter than you can shake a pyromancer’s flame staff at!
