Virtual Reality can take us from the land of the living to the land of the dead, it can take us to another time and it can even take us to another planet. But when I tried Ctrl from Breaking Fourth, it was not what I was expecting. It took me to a time in my life that I tried to… Read more.

*Please keep this in mind, this is a Japan-only game so you will need to create a Japenese PSN account to even get access. So with a Japan-only game, there might be a slight disadvantage if you cannot read Japanese. I say slightly only because the Developer has some parts in English including the dialog of the characters. But if there is an option I missed that allows showing how to change the language within the game itself, I will… Read more.

For those of us that may not get snow and have that white snowy Christmas like some of us remember from our childhood, Mythical City Games just may help you relive some of those childhood memories with Snow Fortress for the… Read more.
Sometimes when we use our imagination it can be a good thing. Many times we read stories that can give us that paint by number feel to them and then sometimes it takes a game like Discovery by Noowanda comes along to give the tools to paint in the numbers and let the door open our creative minds. I will say this, to begin with, Discovery will remind you of familiarity with something that has been around a while, but without the crafting survival. And… Read more.

Fishing games have been around for a while. I remember at the arcade playing what you see above where you actually had the reel and you tried to catch the fish.

Well, it may still be a long time for us to fly like Superman, but what Pentadimensional Games… Read more.

The Invisible Hours by GameTrust and Tequila Works have taken the formula of a board game to a classic movie and made it the new… Read more.
It’s scenes like this from movies like The Martian that I some times pause or just look at the picture.

Then I start to wonder, what if we could be put in a situation like that now to see how you… Read more.

Ah, cartoons. Some are so impressionable from our childhood that one may start to wonder and dream what it would be like to be part of that universe. One of those cartoons I loved was Voltron.

We have Shiro who controls the Black Lion, Keith controls the Red Lion, Lance controls the Blue Lion, Pidge controls the Green Lion and… Read more.
Side-scrolling brawler games have been around for a long time. There is something about going around the different levels and fighting the enemies and racking up the combos.

Some of the games that help expand what we may know now can be bounced off a certain type of genre of games, dungeon crawlers. You might have to find a key or a potion or fight a monster.

Even before the game begins, when that car races towards you and drifts just for the title alone, smiles will race across your face. While you are sitting, the courses surround and the cars… Read more.
Infinite Minigolf for the PlayStation VR is something that does not come along very often. When I first played the review copy, it said there were over 700 courses to play.
