By Paul Hunter

After more than ten long years, the lovable bubble-blowing dragons Bub and Bob are back for another home console adventure on Nintendo Switch. The duo's latest title, Bubble Bobble 4 Friends, combines the franchise's signature arcade platforming with fun, 4-player local co-op action. Being a lifelong fan of the OG arcade game, I had to give this latest entry a spin!

Panzer Dragoon Remake Nintendo Switch Review

A Sega Saturn classic returns 🐲

By Paul Hunter

Some series have completely disappeared from the gaming landscape, but not necessarily from the hearts of players. Good examples would be Banjo-Kazooie, Sly Cooper and Ape Escape. Then there's Panzer Dragoon, another beloved franchise we haven't seen since Orta released in 2003. The series captured gamers attention when it helped launch the Sega Saturn in 1995, yet despite the praise would later fade away like so many great ones do. That is, until this year when seemingly out of nowhere a remake by MegaPixel Studio launched on Nintendo Switch.

To The Moon Nintendo Switch Review

I'm not crying, you're crying 😭

By Paul Hunter

I'm sure we all have that one game our friends have been bugging us to play for years. For me, it's To The Moon, the indie darling from producer Kan Gao and his studio, Freebird Games. I've heard time and again it has a wonderful, emotional story that I simply must experience, and it's Canadian made so even more reason to play it right?

Zombie Army 4: Dead War PS4 Review

There's always room for hell, yo πŸ‘Ώ

By Paul Hunter

If there's one thing I can't get enough of, it's pop, pop, poppin' Nazi zombie brains. Rebellion's Sniper Elite spin-off Nazi Zombie Army got me addicted to it back in 2013, so, of course, I couldn't resist checking out their latest gorefest, Zombie Army 4 on PS4.

Dawn of Fear PS4 Review

By Paul Hunter

It's been 24 years since the original Resident Evil landed on PlayStation and wrote the playbook for creating a successful horror series. The game's popularity sparked a massive craze that gave us Silent Hill, Onimusha, Parasite Eve, and Dino Crisis — horror classics we're still talking about decades later.

Don’t Die, Minerva! Steam Early Access Review

By Paul Hunter

That Minerva, she’s one brave 11-year-old girl! When I was that age, I was going to school, collecting Garbage Pail Kids and playing SNES games. Minerva? She’s ditching her parents, walking deep into the woods and getting trapped inside an eerie haunted mansion. This isn’t a Saturday morning cartoon spooky house either, it’s full of ghosts out to send poor little Minerva straight to the afterlife.
