Spiders studio are pretty experienced with RPGs, but they aren’t really adept at them... Or at least that was the case until now – The Technomancer seems to indicate that soon, practice will make the creators of Mars: War Logs and Bound by Flame perfect.

Total War: Warhammer review – Old World in new garments

game review31 May 2016

Warhammer + Total War is among the most basic mathematical equations – come to think about it, it’s actually surprising that it took that long for Creative Assembly to finally make this game. Today we know that it was totally worth the wait.

game review25 May 2016

With its second expansion the Witcher 3 franchise bids us farewell – at least for a while. The idea to send the witcher on a trip to Toussaint proves to be a great call and an amazing idea for a closure of sorts.

Tom Clancy’s The Division Review: It’s decent, but where do we go from here?

game review22 March 2016

Tom Clancy's The Division was supposed to be a terrific game aiming to attract a new kind of players to Ubisoft. Ultimately, we got a mix of ideas that don’t always add up, and you can really feel that the game is missing something.

Grim Dawn Review – worthy heir to Titan Quest

game review02 March 2016

The creators of the magnificent Titan Quest certainly didn’t rush their next project, but after years of hard work, we have finally got it. Grim Down is a surprisingly good hack’n’slash, and a solid base for further growth.

The Flame in the Flood Review – Unsatisfying survival game from the creators of BioShock

game review24 February 2016

The Flame in the Flood is yet another survival game, similar to hundreds of others out there. Nice audiovisuals and an intuitive crafting system are not enough to completely forget about its repetitivness and lack of variety.

game review11 February 2016

Real-time strategy games, as a genre, are dying. That’s why every new RTS premiere I see is a reason to celebrate. All the more so if the game belongs to one of my favorite series.
