Review: RymdResa

"Space is big. Really big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist, but that's just peanuts to space." - The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy H...

 
 
Traverser review photo

Pillars of Eternity photo

Review: Pillars of Eternity

LA Cops review photo

Review: LA Cops

At first glance, the potential for LA Cops to be an interesting title is great. A top-down shooter in the style of a retro cop squad drama, its main appeal lies in the combination of real-time action with teamwork management, one player usi...

 
 
White Night review photo

Review: White Night

Blackhole review photo

Review: Blackhole
