The 5 Biggest Video Games Expected at E3 2018

With E3 only a matter of weeks away, you can’t blame video game media for the widespread speculation on the event. We might as well jump on the bandwagon and give our thoughts on which of the biggest games will be prominently featured in one of the world’s biggest and most exciting gaming expos. It’s hard to compile all the good ones in one list, but for this article’s sake, we’ll stick with five. You can also check out BXB Games’ roundup of E3 2017 for a look back on…

Marvel and DC Are Battling For Fighting Game Superiority

Marvel and DC Are Battling For Fighting Game Superiority

Fighting games are getting big again and this is welcome news for old-school gamers. There was a time when it looked like classic fighters were on their way out, but thanks to competitions like the annual EVO tournament and new entries in the Street Fighter and Tekken series they’re more popular than they’ve been in years. And it isn’t just established franchises that are responsible for the resurgence of fighting games. New properties and fresh takes on more niche series have exploded onto the scene. One major reason for the…

Mantis Burn Racing (PS4, Xbox One)

Mantis Burn Racing (PS4, Xbox One)

Top-down racing games seem to have become a bit passé, these days. The genre that defined competitive play in the 8-bit and 16-bit eras – including titles like Super Sprint and Micro Machines – has naturally made way for 3D racers more befitting of modern consoles. That said, there’s something uniquely attractive about the playful, toy-like style of top-down driving.

Oceanhorn: Monster Of Uncharted Seas (PS4, Xbox One)

Oceanhorn: Monster Of Uncharted Seas (PS4, Xbox One)

Zeldamania Running Wild! Developers Cornfox & Bros. clearly love Zelda, and they want you to love Zelda too. They made a Zelda clone. They’ve got the horn. The Oceanhorn! Originally released as an iOS title in 2013, Oceanhorn was later ported to the PC in 2015 and now it sails onto PS4 and Xbox One. I suppose the big questions are…is it a bad Zelda knock off, or can it sail on its own across the high seas? The respective answers are: yes, and kind of.

Factotum 90 (Xbox One)

Factotum 90 (Xbox One)

It’s nice to feel clever. Since I didn’t play The Witness, I missed out on Jonathan Blow’s puzzle adventure which was released on PC and PS4 earlier this year.   Despite not playing it, I enjoyed people tweeting how they had finally solved a puzzle.  The euphoria when everything clicks into place and the answer leaps out of the screen is a great feeling and one that Factotum 90 brings to the Xbox One. Factotum 90, published by TACS Games, is an update to Factotum which was released on the…

Replay: VHS Is Not Dead (Xbox One)

Replay: VHS Is Not Dead (Xbox One)

Contrary to the title of this game; VHS is definitely dead. Nostalgia in gaming is as alive as it’s ever been and in Replay: VHS Is Not Dead we get a devilish blend of nostalgia, retro and kitsch. Developed by Team Replay, R:VIND, which is what I’ll never call it ever again, has been out for PC since July 2015, but is now available on every format you can think of, including Xbox One, which is what I played it on. The game is described as a puzzle/platform game, and that’s…
