Cassette Beasts Review: Using Old Equipment to Save Your Future … with MONSTERS

It’s funny that people are referring to Cassette Beasts as “not Pokemon.” While that’s technically true, there are a lot of similarities that make such a strong opposition to the comparison laughable, in my opinion. That being said, this is not just a reskin, as Cassette Beasts incorporates a charming and interesting twist on a format that has grown a little stale due to Nintendo and Gamefreak’s apparent disregard for their fanbase. If you saw it on the Steam Page and thought, “Do I really need this in my life?” Well, I’m here to tell you that you just might.

I’ll give you fair warning now and before each section so you can skip ahead if you’d prefer.



Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Review: A Chip Off the Old Block

We’re back with another Marvel game, howdy, howdy, howdy. Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales was on sale recently, and I enjoyed the original immensely, so I felt it would be good to give this game a whirl. Instead of playing as Peter Parker, however, you are playing as the newcomer Miles Morales, the hero of Harlem. While the game borrows a fair amount from the previous Spider-Man game, it does bring enough new to make the experience interesting. I beat the main story in about 8 hours; here are my thoughts.





Metro Exodus Review: An Ambitious Ending to a Classic Series

Well, everyone, we’ve made it. Here we have the final step in the Metro trilogy that, presumedly, you have been waiting for. Following the events of Metro 2033: Last Light, we rejoin our silent friend Artyom as he ventures out from the musky subway tunnels of post-apocalyptic Moscow.
