GOTY 2023: My Top 5 Games
It's time for the grand finale! Six episodes later, and the big one is upon us: my Top 5 games of 2023!
Oh, boy. This year has flown by, and it’s probably been the most difficult year I’ve had in a long time. I’m not the spring chicken I used to be, but it’s been tough, all the same. What a year, huh? While I cannot think of many personal positives for me in 2023, I’ve been […]
Bite Sized Reviews: The Night Before Christmas
We have a surprise duo of reviews today! Come in and get warm by the fire as I cover Beyond Sunset and Astlibra Revision.
Taking a little break in the big GOTY series with some more Bite Sized reviews! It has been a busy and brutal year. As much as I enjoy covering games and writing all about them, this annual GOTY series is always hard work. I know my Christmas plans will be relaxation only. No reviewing, no […]
Bite Sized Reviews: Ooblets
Well, it took a while for Ooblets to come to Steam, didn’t it? I’m so glad it did. Happy October, the month of spooky things, ghosts, and eating a ton of sugary snacks. I love Halloween, so I might do something special for it. Anyhow, no rambling intros from me today, so let’s jump right […]
Bite Sized Reviews: Wargroove 2
With its expanded campaign, impressive roguelike mode and a slew of improvements, Wargroove 2 is a solid sequel and a great strategy RPG in its own right.
Damn, September was a gigantic month for game releases, but October is no slouch either. It’s starting to get colder here in the UK, although it is still bright and sunny outside while I’m typing up these rambles. I am also recovering from a nasty second bout of covid last week. It picks its moments, […]
Bite Sized Reviews: Fae Farm
Fae Farm launches on September 8th for Steam, consoles and the Nintendo Switch. I've been playing a ton of different games lately, and Fae Farm might just be for you!
It’s a strange experience when our gaming tastes change. Ten years ago perhaps, I was all in on The Elder Scrolls, Fallout, Fable. I still live and breathe those games to this day, but I’ve branched out a lot in the last few years. Farming sims, walking simulators and virtual novels are all genres I’ve […]
Bite Sized Reviews: Sephonie Switch Port
In today's Bite Sized Reviews episode, I feature the recent Nintendo Switch port of Sephonie, a brilliant platformer developed by Analgesic Productions!
Welcome back to Bite Sized Reviews: my ‘rebranded’ Indie Corner series, so to speak! Still got a lot happening behind the scenes, and I’m playing far too many games. I’m not sure how the Gaming Gods expect me to sleep with the likes of Starfield and Phantom Liberty just around the corner, but I’m sure […]
Beginning the Revolution in Road 96: Mile 0 - A Review
“Aya, I mean, she was my best friend, Z. Before you anyway…”
A Look into the Future: Reviewing Three Originals!
With Octopath Traveller II already released to the wild, and the upcoming The Lamplighters League and Wargroove 2 scheduled for 2023 release, I wanted to write something up on their previous titles: Octopath Traveller, Wargroove and Battletech respectively!
I hope everyone is keeping well during these uncertain times! Things are as busy as always here in the Scar den. Several promising games launched recently, such as Raidborn, Netherguild, Mortal Sin, and Tchia. I have reviews for all four of these in the works — the work never ceases over here! While I’m working […]
The Best and Worst of Pokemon Remakes: Part One
It's been a quiet couple of weeks from me! Today, I continue my nostalgic journey through Pokemon, discussing the best and worst parts of the remakes.
Good morning everybody! I would like to thank all those who gave me great feedback on my reviews of the mainline Pokemon games. It was satisfying replaying the original titles — from the embryonic Red and Blue, all the way up to Sword and Shield. My playthrough of Pokemon Scarlet is still unfinished. I expected […]
The Best and Worst of Every Pokemon Generation: Episode 3
I decided to leave out Scarlet/Violet in this episode for a full review of those games once I've completed it, so these are my reviews on Generation 7 and 8. Yep, it's time for the lovely Dexit controversy!
We’re back with more rambles and rants on Pokemon! It’s been a while since the second part of this little miniseries. Playing Pokemon X for the first time since the release was some experience. That game is…weird, you know? While I appreciate the visual design and how diverse the Pokedex was in those games, Game […]
