Yakuza Kiwami (PlayStation 4) Review

Yakuza Kiwami is a complete remake of the original Yakuza, but also a sort of sequel to the recent prequel, Yakuza 0 (that was a mouthful). The original game was released over a decade ago in 2005, and has now been built from scratch with the Yakuza 0 engine. While remakes are going to implement a sense of nostalgia for fans of the original game, this remake also serves as a continuation to the fr...[Read More]

Planet of the Apes: Last Fronter – Video Game Tie-in Revealed

Well, apparently we are getting a video game based on the Planet of the Apes series. Did anyone really ask for this?

New IT Trailer Gives Us More Pennywise

If there’s one film that I’m most excited for this year, it’s the new adaptation of Stephen King’s IT.

Review: War For The Planet Of The Apes – A Bleak Yet Wonderful Conclusion

It’s very rare for a trilogy nowadays in just about any medium to come around and absolutely nail it from beginning to end. When the original Rise of the Planet of the Apes was announced, it was met with much skepticism as we all had that sour taste in our mouths from the Tim Burton remake. No one expected it to be such an excellent character driven film, and same goes for the superb 2nd entry, Da...[Read More]

Perception – Interesting Concept, Disappointing Execution

Back in 2015, developer The Deep End Games started a Kickstarter for an indie project known as Perception with one of the mains selling points being that the team had members who originally worked on critically acclaimed games such as Dead Space and BioShock. Perception’s concept alone was enough to grab me once I saw the team behind it. Perception puts players in control of a blind woman, who mus...[Read More]
