The drama kicked off when Paranautical Activity found itself featured on the Steam storefront today in a section highlighting Halloween-themed games. […]

Logic Pro 2, Deniam (1997) For many, there is a selection of puzzles available known as picture logic puzzles, of which Logic Pro 2 bases its roots very firmly.

After getting a little taste of the 20th Anniversary Edition of Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers, I was eager to dive into the full version and see if this game lived up to all its hype. I never played the original, but watched YouTube videos to get a feel for the 1993 version for […]
Line of Fire, Sega (1989) Sega seem to enjoy milking this game engine in particular for over the top gunnage (it’s a word now, I said so) and for giving people the chance to be Rambo. Having reviewed Jurassic Park back in the J section of these reviews, I thought I’d take a gander at […]
Space fighters, black holes, and 4 player free for all. These ingredients traditionally make for a winning game. In Space We Brawl exclusively for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 has the ingredients, but is a bit undercooked.
Konami ’88, Konami (1988) Following from the success of Track and Field and Hyper Olympics, Konami came back in 1988 with the originally named, Konami ’88. 88 minutes of pure Konami goodness… No it’s just Track and Field with a graphical overhaul and was released in 1988.

Knights of the Round, Capcom (1991) There’s not much to say about Knights of the Round in all fairness, as there’s little in the game that makes it stand out. Perhaps I could go into detail about the setting of the game. Where in we see a pre-round table Arthur, fighting against local kings and […]
Kickle Cubele, Irem (1988) It’s an odd form for a puzzler, but Kickle Cubele (Or Cubicle depending on your version) seems to have a healthy mix of block sliding puzzle, adventure, action and madness that doesn’t translate too well. Especially if you can’t understanding the game and what it’s showing you. However that’s not to […]
Pix The Cat, just released by Pasta Games exclusively for PlayStation 4 and Vita, is a throwback to the classic arcade games of the 80’s.

You could spend days doing nothing but watching videos on YouTube of video game trailers, let’s play episodes, reviews, previews, gaming culture, music videos, and more. Some people do, and even get paid to do so! (So long as their employers don’t find out). But for those of us who have to live in the […]
Jurassic Park, SEGA (1993) Brought out to coincide with the release of the groundbreaking film, Jurassic Park (SEGA) is an on-rails shooter that capitalizes upon several things.
