Review: Wailing Heights

Growing up, I didn't really play a whole lot of adventure or point and click games. For starters, I didn't have a PC and there wasn't a ton really available for consoles. And compared to stuff like Sonic the Hedgehog or NBA Jam, adventure g...

Review: The Lion's Song

I love how our modern gaming landscape has allowed forgotten genres to come back into style. It would have been a tall order to find a point and click adventure game 15 years ago, but now we’re swimming in classic LucasArts style titl...

July's PlayStation Plus line-up includes a massive downpour

The PlayStation Plus line-up for July 2018 is pretty odd. Usually, the PS4 titles are solid enough, but we're getting two rather forgettable experiences on Sony's latest platform. The Quantic Dream "classic" Heavy Rain is the biggest title ...

Review: CHUCHEL

I can’t say I’ve ever heard of CHUCHEL before I accepted this review. A code appeared for us describing a cool soundtrack and hunting for cherries, but it wasn’t until someone replied saying Amanita Design was behind the g...
