Retro Rewind - GripShift Review

I notice the GripShift logo hovering directly above me so I high tail it towards the nearest jump, hurling my car straight into the logo.Those are the kind of insane stunts and gameplay you'll find in GripShift, a racing (sort of) game that can be found on XBLA.

Retrowatch: KKND2: Krossfire - One of the Best RTS of the 90s

This week we take a trip down the RTS retro road with KKND2: Krossfire.While most RTS games allow for a more passive-aggressive or defensive playstyle to some degree, KKND2 doesn't.

Outlast 2: A Wicked Religious Experience

I was absolutely gutted when a several month delay happened at the 11th hour back near Halloween 2016, but now Outlast 2 is here and ready to scare your socks off.Unlike with the first Outlast, which is essentially just something you pull out at Halloween to scream for a night, there's now a reason to play through Outlast 2 more than once to search them all down.

The visual effects are also just as good because the developers have almost flawlessly incorporated the world with the game's musical theme.The quests in AereA are your typical ‘kill so many enemies’ or ‘bring back so many items’ quests that one finds in any RPG.
