Reading Time: 5 minutes The Outer Wilds is a game of mystery and exploration in a tiny hand-crafted solar system.

Or does this title’s ambition outstrip its needs? Find out in this Rapid Review!
Reading Time: 6 minutes Since the very beginning, whether through dice rolls or button clicks, gaming has sought to deliver the experience of being an all-powerful wizard to the user. The advent of VR promises to bring that dream closer to actuality than it has ever been before and The Wizards tries to fulfil it.
Reading Time: 5 minutes Leisure Suit Larry has a long-running history with video games. Initially starting in the late 80’s; Larry Laffer has been squirming his way through many different console iterations trying to charm the pants (quite literally) off any hot-blooded female he can get a hold of.

Reading Time: 7 minutes Not to be confused with a phrase Kanye West might use when addressing his eldest daughter, Bad North is a real-time tactical roguelite game designed and developed by Plausible Concept. Now, whilst Kanye references may be less and less appropriate as I divulge my experiences with this title, there are some excellent links that can be made in the opening.
Reading Time: 4 minutes In some ways, the less that’s said about Draugen, the better. If you are a fan of first person narrative experiences like What Remains of Edith Finch, this is an easy recommendation. If you are skeptical, this may be the title to shift your paradigm. In any case, read on for this Rapid Review!
