Dry Drowning

When our editor Gerard offered me a review code for a game called Dry Drowning, described as a “psychological investigative thriller”, I immediately walked back my hasty “Oh this sounds fun!” reaction as not to appear too enthusiastic about such a morbid sounding premise. Yet, as I got stuck into this dark, interactive visual novel, I realised that was probably wise.Dry Drowning, developed by Stud...[Read More]

Katamari Damacy Reroll

The funny thing is, when our editor Gerard asked me to review Katamari Damacy Reroll, I naively thought I was in for a delightful stress-free time. Having briefly played Beautiful Katamari on a friend’s Xbox years back and fondly remembering a colourful experience filled with cutesy bubble-gum objects and a soundtrack befitting a kids TV show, it was an easy sell.

Tiny Troopers Joint Ops XL

The game starts off with a Tutorial mode which is mildly annoying, due to the repetitive music and noises from npcs, before throwing you into the main menu where you can choose from Soldier, Special Ops (which are essentially the same), Zombie campaign or Zombie Horde. The non-zombie related missions were quite dull and very samey with an odd difficulty curve for some missions, all of which start ...[Read More]
