Our crew just keeps expanding and expanding! We are very happy to have acquired the services of a good friend of ours, gaming enthusiast extraordinaire, Rick "Herr Doktor von Brienenstein" van Brienen!

His inaugural review is about a game that has launched around a month ago, but has already left a lasting impression on our new blood. We're talking about Sloclap and Devolver Digital's latest collaboration: Absolver! Nowadays, Rick is constantly honing his kungfu skills in order to become the greatest fighter that has ever lived!

So, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, give a big hand to Herr Doctor von Brienenstein and let's see what he thinks of Absolver, shall we?

  • Neofeud A couple of weeks ago, I received an email from Christian Kealoha Miller of Silver Spook Games. He told me about his upcoming game Neofeud, which is based on reflections of his own experiences as a teacher.

  • Yakuza Kiwami Now, I know some of you probably think it is most awesome to be a badass and to have your name whispered in fear by people you pass on the streets. And if you say it like this, it does indeed sound awesome! But, what if you're name is tied to a gruesome murder and you wind up in jail for the better part of ten years? If this isn't bad enough, everything you have worked for so far is going down the drain really fast and your best friend is now your worst enemy. So, do you still think being the badass is awesome?

  • Resident Evil: Revelations (2017) I don't know if it is because I grew up on and around a ship, but every time I see a big cruise ship I can't help but feeling that I want to take a cruise sometimes. But what's this? My next game adventure is on one of those amazing luxury cruise ships? Woohoo!

  • Lawbreakers We're flying high! We're flying high into the sky! Oh, I'm sorry, I let myself get carried away for a little bit. But boy, do I feel pumped and excited! Why, you ask? Because I was chosen, no, destined to play Lawbreakers for So let me take you on this fast-paced thrill ride!

  • Supaplex Welcome, dear readers, to a slightly delayed Big Red Timemachine. As the more perceptive of you may have noticed, we should have blasted off last week, but due to a number of strange goings-on, I was regrettably not able to do so. I don't know what is going on, but it seems that the whole Big Red HQ is working against me somehow. If my HQ was a woman, I would say she is on her period and hates my guts right now...

  • Masquerada: Songs and Shadows Masquerada: Songs and Shadows puts you in the role of Cicero Gavar, a man of humble birth who made a decent career for himself. His rank of inspettore put him in an awkward position when he comes face to face with his brother who fights for the lower class in the citte della Ombre. Unwilling to kill his outlaw brother Cicero is exiled as a traitor...

  • Ghost Chase Let's get spooky, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls! Come with me and let me take you on a trip to Canterville Castle! Never heard of it? Well, that might just be caused by the fact that not a lot of people visit the castle anymore. You see, besides the naturally creepy vibe most old castles give off, Canterville Castle is actually haunted... by a ghost named Max!

  • Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun The year is 1615 during the Tokugawa period in Japan, an era of Shinobi and Samurai. Conflict is settled with both swords and early firearms. I imagine all sorts of brave warriors in elaborate armor charging to an early grave, for honor and the future of their clan. Anyone who is fascinated by this period in Japanese history pays attention whenever this theme pops up in movies or videogames. I am no exception.

  • Immortal Planet Some challenges are not for the faint of heart. But, no matter how though the challenge sometimes seems to be, today I learned (yet again) why we at never shy away from them. No matter how small or great they may seem. Now come see what I am going on about... if you dare!

  • Krush, Kill & Destroy Incoming inter-dimensional transmission:
    Right, this should be reaching the HQ... First let me address the important people... our readers. Sorry to keep you waiting so long for a message confirming my good health. It seems that it's really hard to send and receive messages when you are not only whisked away from your own solar system and, ultimately, our galaxy, but also somehow end up in another dimension or two...
