10 Hours With… Pokémon Unite

As the Pokémon juggernaut rolls on, so does it continue to branch into different platforms and genres.

10 Hours With… Nine Parchments

Recently, some friends and I were searching for a new multiplayer game to play; in particular, something a bit more fantastical and magical, as a change from our time with Zombie Army 4: Dead War. From the exhaustive list of candidates, we picked out Nine Parchments, a top-down twin-stick shooter where you wield not guns, … Continue reading 10 Hours With… Nine Parchments

10 Hours With… Horizon Zero Dawn

When Horizon Zero Dawn was announced at E3 2015, it was a very exciting prospect and a standout in the upcoming schedule of releases. An unknown setting merging the old and new, massive robotic creatures, and a charismatic female lead in Aloy - not to mention that I'm a sucker for some archery. So, why … Continue reading 10 Hours With… Horizon Zero Dawn
