Death Road to Canada

You run for your life, throwing open a wooden door, throw yourself through it and then slam the door behind you. Looking around you see a lone zombie, shambling his way towards you. You grab your weapon; a golf club you secured from the last

Mass Effect Andromeda

A little over a month ago Bioware released the fourth entry in their Mass Effect franchise subtitled Andromeda. The game was met with, shall we say, a mixed reception. In all honesty, this should probably have been expected, not a single entry in the series

Dungeon Keeper

Heroes. Virtuous beings who take it upon themselves to rid the world of evil and bring about a calm to the populace while slaughtering any monstrous beings who may oppose them in any shape or form. Such despicable pathetic bags of flesh. If you ever

Super Bomberman R

Press A to plant bombs. Don’t let said bombs blow you up. It’s rare to see a game that is still as basic as this on a modern day console, however, Super Bomberman R is one that takes pride in giving us the classic Bomberman

Batman: A Telltale Series
