  • Review Hades (PS5) - Who Knew Escaping Hell Would Be So Heavenly?

    Say amen, there he goes again

    Review Transistor

    Bastion of brilliance

    Supergiant Games' first effort Bastion is the quintessential indie: a relatively niche game that won over hearts and minds with its good looks and slick shooting.
