REVIEW / Mutant Football League (PC)



In my 36 years on this planet I have come to a very simple realization: I'm absolutely horrific at sports. I'm big and gangly and my arms and legs never do what I want them to. So when you can't play sports physically, it makes sense to have a go...

High fantasy is a tricky genre to navigate and can be full of narrative pitfalls. Often times entries in the genre tread too close to cliche, or delve too deep into their own lore all at once and lose the audience. It takes a strong storyteller to reach into the...

As a rule I don't like survival horror games, or actually horror much of anything for that matter. It's not that I don't like the premise. I really love a good ghost story when it's written well and H.P. Lovecraft is one of my all time heroes. The thing is,...
