[Video] The Rebel Is A Reminder of Greenlight’s Uselessness

Since we discussed The Rebel’s developer having a meltdown on Steam, I decided to take a look at the game and see just how it attained a 75% positive rating (at the time). Strap in and pull your seat belts tight, this is going to be a bumpy ride. The developer is offering the rights […]

[NM] Lara Croft GO

The GO series turned out to be a real surprise hit¬†when Square Enix announced Hitman GO for iOS and Android way back in the far flung past of 2014. You could cut the skepticism for Hitman GO with a knife, a rather cynical look toward what was perceived as the first steps of a company […]
