Streets of Rogue Review: They Let You Do What?

by Albert Lim Streets of Rage, released in 1991 for Sega Genesis / Megadrive, was the story of badass cops who take to the streets, bringing the fight to the criminal syndicate which has thrown their city into chaos.

Outpost 9 Demo is a callback to The Thing and Alien

Dead Cells Review: Rinse, Repeat, Roguevania

You can tell a game is amazing when you have a hard time putting it down, continually making excuses for “just one more round,” or sitting down to play a match or two and suddenly it’s midnight.

The ‘80s aesthetic, in general, is something that I…dare I say, yearn for? And yet I know we’ll never return to those glory years,…

Has this ever happened to you? You’re sitting at home, having a nice evening on the couch with your pet and your TV, and BAM. You’re hungry. So you go to the fridge to satiate your rumbling tummy but, alas – no food. So you pick up the phone and make some calls about securing dinner, but wouldn’t you…

The Darkside Detective Review

Our story takes us down a shadowed path. A path so dark, it needs three creams and three sugars before most people can even consider drinking it. But Detective McQueen isn’t most people. He takes his coffee black; his cases bizarre. Follow him as he takes the path leading down the rabbit hole, leading him to solve the creepy…
